This site was created by Hannah Schockmel in conjunction with the Michelle Smith Collaboratory for Visual Culture in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at the University of Maryland College Park.

Special thanks to Collaboratory director Quint Gregory for his invaluable advice and assitance, and fellow graduate assistants Kristi Jamrisko Gross, Danielle O'Steen, Caroline Paganussi, and Nicole Riesenberger for their input on design and layout.

Further thanks to Bryn Schockmel for her suggestions and endless knowledge of symbols and emblems.
