The Georgia Historical Records Advisory Council (GHRAC) has selected the M.A. Thesis, "A 'Miserable Creature' or 'Remarkable Man': Wilkes Flagg and the Ambiguity of Race in Nineteenth-Century Middle Georgia," written by UGA history alumnus Laura E. Nelson (MA history 2018), to receive the 2018 Award for Excellence in Student Research Using Historical Records.
Scott Reynolds Nelson will talk about using Word files and digital folders to manage document workflow for large research projects.
