We wish to acknowledge those groups and individuals who have contributed to the creation and development of the Charrette Project.

Thanks are due the Department of French and Italian, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) and the Educational Technologies Center (ETC) of Princeton University whose continued support was instrumental to the project. We are especially grateful for their commitment to preserving and maintaining this archival version of the website.

Princeton University’s Foulet Fund made substantial contributions in the form of graduate student stipends, without which the site could not have been constructed. The Fulbright Program supported our Visiting Research Fellows. In addition, generous grants throughout the years from the Florence Gould Foundation fostered fruitful collaboration between the Princeton-based and Poitiers-based research groups, and most recently funded the Charrette Project Editorial Board meeting, hosted by Portland State University in January 2006. Portland State University and Baylor University have funded vital travel and research related to the project.

Our collaborative relationship with the Centre d’études supérieures de civilisation médiévale (CESCM) at Poitiers has been a rich source of inspiration, in particular the contributions of Professors Gabriel Bianciotto, René Pellen and Cinzia Pignatelli of the CESCM. Professor Christiane Marchello-Nizia has offered encouragement, advice and support throughout the project’s development. Through her invitations, Princeton-based Charrette associates have benefited from travel to and consultation with her colleagues and students at the Ecole normale supérieure, Lyon and the Institut de linguistique française, CNRS. We are most grateful for Dr. Michelle Freeman’s gracious assistance during the establishment of this archive. Professor Sarah Kay’s advocacy was also instrumental to the transition to this archival site at Princeton.

Finally, we express our deep gratitude to Dr. Rafael Alvarado (Dickinson College), who gave selflessly of his time and effort for many years.

We dedicate the archive to the memories of Karl D. Uitti, our mentor, and Alfred Foulet, his mentor.
