First and foremost, Andrea and Krista would like to thank Active History for their support throughout the Beyond the Lecture series and through the creation of this edited volume. We would also like to thank Andrew Nurse for his encouragement when we first launched the series. We wish to thank our contributors for their generosity, for without their work this book would not have been possible.
Thank you to the extremely helpful staff at eCampusOntario, who made the technical side of this publication possible. We also wish to thank Taylor Jolin for their work designing our ebook cover and for creating something beautiful out of our vague design ideas.
Andrea would like to thank Krista for being such a thoughtful, brilliant, and supportive collaborator, as well as a dear friend. She would also like to thank her husband, Lee Blanding, for his patience and support, and for continuing to work as her copyeditor despite the lack of payment.
Likewise, Krista would like to thank Andrea for her humour, collaboration skills, and fantastic ideas. They would also like to thank their partner Andrew – who also serves as a copyeditor without payment.
