American Routes: Cultural Continuity & Creativity in the Vernacular Humanities

Production of eight, two-hour radio programs on American music and culture.

American Routes radio program seeks support for a series of 8 new humanities-oriented 2-hour programs for broadcast nationwide in 2019-20. The programs will focus on the role of cultural continuity and creativity in response to natural and man-made disasters, economic downturn, migration from and to home, and concerns about the future of communities and cultures. As a companion piece, we propose to work with various organizations to arrange community forums for the proposed programs that take place in a "place": NYC, Miami, Honolulu, Galax, VA, and New Orleans. Each gathering will be tailored to a particular program as a means to discuss humanities issues the program will try to address, and to seek guidance on content from local audiences and authorities. A detailed description of the programs is in the "treatments" attachment and details about the forum component are in the "narrative" attachment.
