This website was made possible by the generous support of Packard Humanities Institute and was developed by GCDO’s employees and collaborators. My thanks go to David Bragg our 2006 - 2007 Peace Corps Volunteer and his wife Kate Yarhouse; to Philip Morgan our intern from Manchester, UK; to our colleagues Daniel Renton and Oliver Gilkes as well as our editor Felicity Booth.  A warm thank you goes to our staff Elenita Roshi, Alketa Qamo, Enkeleida Roze and Lubjana Baoja; and to colleagues of the ICAA team, Diana Ndrenika, Ardit Miti and Eglantina Serjani.  A special acknowledgement goes to Prof. Richard Hodges for his continued support and optimism in saving Gjirokastra.
