Over the summer, Zachary Palmer and Dalton Johnson worked together under Dr. Ian Binnington on a project concerned with investigating the images on the 50 state quarters. They were the third set of students to work on this project since its inception in 2012. As a result, Zac and Dalton were initially charged with looking over all of the previous research, organizing it, and then putting it into an intelligible framework. In order to do this, they conducted an in depth search of the selection process of these coins. Then, over the course of two weeks, they reviewed every image on every quarter, including those quarters released under the D.C. and Territories program. Dalton and Zac created seven major categories and then divided each category into smaller subdivisions. The images were then placed into the appropriate categories, sometimes fitting into more than one. Dalton and Zac then took all numerical totals of the categories they had in an Excel document, and created graphical representations of the data in order to analyze it further. As they did so, Dalton and Zac came to conclude that much of what was put on the quarters was very uncontroversial images depicting a very western, white, and European history. Finally, they took that discovery and ran with it, presenting at the ACRoSS seminar and the poster session in the summer of 2014. They discussed the 50 States Quarters Program with respect to what you DIDN’T see on the quarters. This was then used as a way to show the kind of American Nationalism that is commonplace in today’s society.
