The editors would like to thank each of the contributors to this volume, who not only worked on their own chapters but who also participated in the peer-to-peer review process to make this book the best version of itself. We are grateful to them for giving of their time, expertise, patience, and stores of knowledge during the many steps (and some missteps) along the way. We would also like to thank the coeditors of the Debates in Digital Humanities series, Matthew K. Gold and Lauren F. Klein, for their guidance and encouragement in manifesting our vision for the collection. Thank you, as well, to Anne Carter, Danielle Kasprzak, Jason Weidemann, Leah Pennywark, and Ana Bichanich at the University of Minnesota Press and Kimberly Giambattisto at Westchester Publishing Services for their support.
We thank our current institutions, Salem State University, York College, CUNY, and The Graduate Center, CUNY, as well as Williams College, for supporting this project. In particular, we would like to thank Nicole Cote, Vallerie Matos, Haley Mallett, and Evan Miller for their help preparing the manuscript for publication.
