The members of the Mellon seminar—Elizabeth Fenton, Gale Kenny, Cory Ledoux, David Messmer, Molly Robey, and Benjamin Wise—provided a lively critical forum for a number of our contributors. We thank Gordon Hutner for his support of this project in its early stages, and we are grateful to participants of the University of Toronto’s Andrew Mellon Sawyer Seminar, “Envisioning a Global Americas,” for their responses to a preliminary version of our introduction. For funding research costs related to the book’s completion, we thank Gary S. Wihl, Dean of Humanities at Rice University, and the Department of English and the College of Arts and Humanities at the University of Maryland. We are also pleased to thank the National Endowment of the Humanities for helping to sustain the conversation on hemispheric studies by funding a summer NEH seminar on the topic. Our editor at Rutgers University Press, Leslie Mitchner, has inspired us with her professionalism and enthusiasm for the project. We would also like to thank Alison Hack, Alicia Nadkarni, Carey Nershi, and Marianna Vertullo for their invaluable assistance with the preparation of the manuscript. Finally, we are pleased to thank our contributors, whose hard work, collegiality, and commitment to the project have made coediting this volume a pleasure and an education.
