Funding for this project was provided by the Education Division of the National Endowment for the Humanities, an independent federal agency, the Freeman Foundation, and the Chiang Ching- Kuo Foundation.  The project also received technical assistance from the University of Washington's Center for Advanced Research Technology in the Arts and Humanities.
