Acknowledgments

I would like extend my deepest gratitude to my creative team, whose friendship, inspiration and support made this book, and the creative production of the Tongues of Heaven documentary and Root Tongue web application possible in the first place: An-Chi Chen and family, Shin-Lan Yu and family, Yan-Fen Lan and family, Merata Mita, Malia Nobrega, Leivallyn Kainoa Kaupu and family, Hau‘oli Waiau and family, Amy P. Lee, Apay Ai-Yu Tang, Yu-Chao Huang, Sean Elwood, Michella Rivera-Gravage, Otherwise Co., Terry Hwang, Irene Faye Duller, Jessica Yazbek, Marisa Wilson, Wali Hassan Jafferi, Biagio Azzarelli, Shalini Agrawal, Michael Wong, Chevy Lum, Alex Wang and Julie Ann Yuen. I also cannot overemphasize the importance of the critical dialogue I have had with my students over the years who have shaped this artistic and scholarly research, and so I thank my students at National Dong Hwa University for sharing their minds and hearts and whose experiences serve as the springboard for this study and the transmedia documentary project. I am also grateful to my media studies students at the University of San Francisco, who provided invaluable feedback during our usability testing for Root Tongue.

A key aspect of the work’s success is the important community support I received in Taiwan, the San Francisco Bay Area and Hawai‘i. I am especially grateful to Ho Chie Tsai, James Y. Shih, Jenny and James Hong, Shin-Fei Wu, Carol Ou, Paul T. Tran and Anna Wu; Laura Welcher and Cameron Eng at the Long Now Foundation; and Dave Kamholz, Julie Anderson and Ben Yang at PanLex. I am also grateful to my academic colleagues, who offered their expertise at various stages of the research and writing process, and creative production: Robert Blust, Andy Wang, Wendy Chun, Nishant Shah, Rik Du Busser, Dafyyd Fell, Bi-Yu Chang, Kerim Friedman, Jolan Hsieh, Yi-Fong Chen, Kent Liu, Emerson Odango, Koukalaka McNaught, Bernadette Barker-Plummer and Dorothy Kidd.
