Turning the Century: Essays in Media and Cultural Studies

Acknowledgments

Many people helped make this volume possible. First and foremost, thanks are due to the participants in one of the liveliest and most interesting graduate seminar groups I have ever led: Michael Aronson, Kevin Ayotte, Lisa Belicka Keränen, Andrew Haley, Kelly Happe, Mark Harrison, Andrew Miller, Dympna Reinheimer, Dawn Schmitz, Maxwell Schnurer, Julie Stoddard, Amos Tevelow, and Ron VonBurg. I owe a special debt of gratitude to Dawn and Kevin for donating their time and labor during the final stages of production. Their enthusiasm, humor, and ability to meet deadlines have kept this project alive. Jonathan Sterne kindly read through the introduction, gave me an editorial kick in the pants when I needed it most, and reminded me how important intellectual colleagues actually are. Lisa Frank, Csaba Toth, Matt Reichek, and Andrew Haley collaborated on a series of reading groups that formed the impetus for the graduate course and stimulated much of my thinking about the period. Special thanks to Csaba, whose encyclopedic knowledge of literature on and about American culture continues to be both a marvel and a valued resource to me and others. Paul Smith showed interest in this volume from the moment I mentioned it; without his continuing support and unstinting friendship, it would never have seen the light of day. Thanks are also due to Richard Ohmann, both for his inspiring and lucid Selling Culture and for so kindly agreeing to pen an afterword. This volume is much improved because of Lisa Wigutoff and Rebecca Ritke's patient and thorough editing. Lastly, "grateful" doesn't begin to capture what I owe to Mrak -- for the pack and the doggerel and for allowing me to believe that I'm much bigger than I am.
