Producer: Julia Morrison
Abstract: A two-part series about one of America’s most influential and controversial founding fathers — Alexander Hamilton: self-made man, war hero, statesman, financial visionary and political lightning rod. Hamilton was a leading force behind the Constitution, the architect of a modern economy in America, champion of a strong central government and effective military, and leader of one of the country’s first political parties. Yet today, Hamilton and his accomplishments are neither widely understood nor appreciated.

Title: Dolley Madison
Writer: Ronald Blumer

Producer: Catherine Allan
Producer: Muffie Meyer
Producer: Julia Morrison
Producer: Ronald Blumer
Producer: Sharon Sachs
Abstract: A 90-minute portrait of the woman who transformed the previously undefined role of the President's wife and became America's "first" First Lady. Dolley Madison lived through two wars, knew the first twelve Presidents, and watched America evolve from a struggling young republic to the first modern democracy in the world. At a time when women could neither vote nor participate officially in politics, Dolley Madison, wife of the fourth President, James Madison, became one of the most influential and best loved figures of her day. When she died in 1849 at the age of 81 - one of the last remaining members of the founding generation - Washington City honored her with the largest state funeral the capital had ever seen.
Abstract: Dolley Madison is a 90-minute PBS prime-time special that will re-introduce Americans to this charismatic First Lady, examining her role as one of the most influential American women of the early nineteenth century. Viewers will learn how Dolley Madison used her skills as the nation’s first great political hostess to create a distinctly American political style—one that embodied the new country’s republican values. The documentary will also explore how Dolley became a unifying symbol for the country and helped Americans create a national identity.

The Egyptian Oracle (May 20th at Puppet Showplace Theater)
Grant details: HD-51209-10
Title: The Egyptian Oracle (May 20th at Puppet Showplace Theater)
Writer: Brad Shur, Kerry Handron, Jeffrey Jacobson, Brenda Huggins, Friedrich Kirshner
Producer: Jeffrey Jacobson
Abstract: The Egyptian Oracle performance is a live reenactment of an authentic public ceremony from ancient Egypt’s Late Period. We project our Virtual Egyptian Temple on the wall at life scale extending the physical theater into virtual space. The temple is not a film, not a static image, but a true three-dimensional space, which the audience navigates during scene changes. The central actor is a high priest, an avatar controlled by a live human puppeteer, hidden offstage. The supporting actress stands in front of the screen, in costume, mediating the experience. Audience members represent the Egyptian populace acting out brief roles in the drama. Finally, the sacred boat (left) is another puppet also controlled by the puppeteer. In the drama, the will of the temple god moves the boat. This production is a prototype funded by a Digital Startup Grant from the NEH (HD-5120910). We are not seeking support for a full implementation.

Artists Picture Changing American Landscapes

Title: Artists Picture Changing American Landscapes
Writer: Cathy Burton
Writer: P. Joseph Mullins
Writer: Karen Burgard
Writer: T. Scott McMillin
Writer: Elaine Rosa
Writer: Patty Dillon
Director: Geoffrey Weiss
Producer: Geoffrey Weiss
Abstract: This video series is part of the Artists Picture Changing American Landscapes teacher professional development workshop conducted by the Rivers Institute at Hanover College (http://rivers.hanover.edu). From the 28 landscape sketches by British officers in the Scenographia Americana (1768) to Albert Bierstadt's Looking Down Yosemite Valley, California (1864) or, even later, Charles Sheeler's American Landscape (1930), art has shaped public perceptions of the vast North American continent. In turn, the landscape leaves its imprint upon artists. The Artists Picture Changing American Landscapes teacher workshop (http://www.apcal.net/home.php) can help teachers integrate Picturing America landscapes into the core subjects of fine arts, American history and government, social studies, and English/language arts, employing images, primary, and secondary documents in their classrooms to see how artists have responded to changing American landscapes — physical, social, and political. Incorporate the Picturing America collection into your humanities, history, social studies, visual arts, or language arts classroom. Full-length downloadable audio versions of these lectures are available at the website. The workshop is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations in this video do not necessarily reflect those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Title: I Came to Testify
Writer: Pamela Hogan
Director: Pamela Hogan
Producer: WNET and Fork Films
Abstract: When the Balkans exploded into war in the 1990s, reports that tens of thousands of women were being systematically raped as a tactic of ethnic cleansing captured the international spotlight. I Came to Testify tells how sixteen women who had been imprisoned by Serb-led forces in the Bosnian town of Foca broke history’s great silence and took the witness stand in an international court of law. Their courage resulted in a triumphant verdict that led to new international laws about sexual violence in war. Narrated by Matt Damon, the film is the first hour in the five-part documentary series Women, War & Peace that aired on PBS in 2011.

Weiqi Wonders: Conversations About the Game of Go in China
Grant details: RA-50083-10
Title: Weiqi Wonders: Conversations About the Game of Go in China
Writer: Mark L. Moskowitz
Director: Mark L. Moskowitz
Producer: Mark L. Moskowitz
Abstract: Weiqi, often referred to as "Go" in English, is arguably the most important game in East Asia, with an estimated thirty million to fifty million players throughout the world. Weiqi is a board game immersed in more vivid and often contradictory cultural metaphors than any other game in the world. As Chinese politics have changed over the last two millennia, so too has the imagery of the game—from a tool to seek religious enlightenment to military metaphors, one of the noble four arts, one of the condemned “four olds”, nationalism, transnationalism, historical elitism, and futuristic hyper rationality. The filmmaker interviews people in China in settings ranging from children's schools to China's elite Beijing University to a park where retired working class men gather to play, from child educators to those reminiscing about their own youth during the Cultural Revolution. What emerges is a fascinating cultural study as people discuss children's education, retirement, China forty years ago and today.

Producer: Jason Cohn
Abstract: The husband and wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America’s most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence of significant events in American life – from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age – has been less widely understood. Narrated by James Franco, EAMES: The Architect and the Painter is the first film since their death dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work.

The China Threat: Perception versus Reality
Grant details: CH-50332-07
Title: The China Threat: Perception versus Reality
Writer: Qin Herzberg
Writer: Larry Herzberg
Director: Calvin College Film Productions
Producer: Calvin College Film Productions
Abstract: China is the most populous nation in the world, the second largest economy, and one of the two largest trading partners of the United States. And yet a large percentage of the American people view China's rise as a threat to the U.S., either militarily or economically or both. According to a recent CNN/Opinion Research survey, 71 percent of American consider China an economic threat to the U.S., while 51 percent consider China a military threat. The frequent reports in the American media about human rights abuses in China add to a rather dark view of that country on the part of the American public. When surveyed, 68 percent of Americans suggest that China is doing a bad job respecting the human rights of its citizens. Larry and Qin Herzberg, both professors of Chinese language and culture at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI spent several summers interviewing people from different walks of life across the U.S. as to their views on China. To answer their concerns as well as those voiced in the media, they interviewed professors of Chinese history, religion, philosophy, and business, who have spent the last three decades or more studying China and traveling there regularly. They also interviewed a Canadian reporter, an American missionary, and a New Zealander restaurant manager who have lived in China for many years. Included in the video are also interviews with two American businessmen who oversee factories in China. These people with a true knowledge of China were asked to comment on the negative feelings and fears so many Americans have about China. In particular, they were asked to answer these three basic questions: Is China an economic threat to the U.S.? Is it a military threat? Exactly now widespread are human rights abuses in China, especially as regards religious freedom? This film is designed to give Americans and other Westerners a better and more nuanced understanding of the rising superpower in the world.

Abstract: A racially charged criminal trial and a heart-rending love story converge in this documentary about Mildred and Richard Loving, a part-black, part-Indian woman and a white man who married in Jim Crow era Virginia. Thrown into rat-infested jails and exiled from their hometown for many years, the Lovings fought back and changed history. They were paired with two young and ambitious lawyers who were driven to pave the way for social justice and equal rights through a historic Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia. The Loving Story takes us on a journey into the heart of race relations in America. But, in the end, it is a poignant love story of two people who simply wanted to live in the place they called home.

Bread Culture in Jordan
Grant details: RA-50102-11
Title: Bread Culture in Jordan
Writer: Jennie Ebeling
Director: Amanda Lane
Producer: Amanda Lane Productions
Abstract: Anthropologists have noted that traditional lifeways in the Middle East, especially those related to diet, are rapidly disappearing. Women were the primary bread bakers in traditional Middle Eastern societies until the emergence of male owned and operated commercial bakeries in the mid 20th century. Although their participation in bread baking is now limited, women are still strongly associated with the production of this essential foodstuff in Jordan. This documentary examines women's changing roles in bread production in contemporary Jordan through interviews with urban and rural Jordanians in the northern Jordan Valley, Amman, and the Petra area.

Statistics, Reform and Technologies of Government in Turkey
Grant details: RA-50078-09
Title: Statistics, Reform and Technologies of Government in Turkey
Writer: Brian Silverstein
Producer: Center for Middle Eastern Studies, University of Arizona
Abstract: Turkey’s application to enter the EU has required the country to learn new things about itself. It is required to learn them in specific frameworks, using specific concepts and methodologies, and these are subsumed in EU entry negotiations under the rubric of statistics. Having collected these statistics, it is required to share them with its population and the EU, and—crucially—it continually reforms its institutions and practices in light of the new statistical knowledge. This paper argues that the relationship between statistics and social forms is not solely one of “description.” To the extent that statistics do not merely study or represent the objects they are purported to be about, but are intimately involved in intervening in/on those objects (e.g. social, economic, or ecological processes) and in fact in remaking them through ‘reform’ and/or ‘development,’ they have a performative nature. In this sense statistics are less a methodology and more a technology--a technology of governance. The paper draws on fieldwork in Turkey with statisticians, technicians and agricultural experts working on the design and implementation of EU-inspired reforms to develop new apparatuses for the collection of data on agriculture in the country.

Judgment at Washington: Henry Wirz, Legacies, and the Ends of War
Grant details: RA-50082-10
Title: Judgment at Washington: Henry Wirz, Legacies, and the Ends of War
Writer: Michael Vorenberg
Producer: C-SPAN
Abstract: Michael Vorenberg talked about the legacy of Confederate Captain Henry Wirz, who was in charge of the Andersonville Prison Camp from March 1864 to his arrest in May 1865 for war crimes. Professor Vorenberg argued that Mr. Wirz’s trial was framed within the context of slavery but the memory of his trial and execution has changed as historians view it through the lens of 20th century events. “Judgment at Washington: Lew Wallace, Henry Wirz, and the Elusive Quest to End the Civil War” was part of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society 2014 Spring Conference “A Just and Lasting Peace: Ending the Civil War", held in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. It was the eleventh symposium in the series, "The National Capitol in a Nation Divided: Congress and the District of Columbia Confront Sectionalism and Slavery.”

The Hypertext system used in the film is called FRESS and was developed by Andy van Dam, Carol Chomsky, Richard Harrington, and others based on the hypertext idea developed by Theodor Nelson. The Hypertext poetry class described in the film was conducted by Jim Catano, Carol Chomsky, Nancy Comley, and Robert Scholes. Film production was done by Michael Silverman, Bill Gallery, and Peter O'Neill.

Title: “Writing the Dead: Death & Memory in the Edwards Family in the Early Eighteenth Century,”
Writer: Kenneth P. Minkema

Producer: Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
Abstract: This essay focuses on several instances of death and memorialization within two generations of the Edwardses in eighteenth-century New England, namely, the families of Timothy Edwards, born in 1669, and of his son Jonathan, who both died in the same year, 1758. Attitudes about death and separation reveal much about father, son, and their extended families, attitudes qualified by age, gender, and other factors, and suggesting wider and richer possibilities for post-puritan religious culture.

It is a mash-up concept with jazz-rock roots but with a unique twist,” said Torff.

Abstract: Jack Roosevelt Robinson rose from humble origins to cross baseball’s color line and become one of the most beloved men in America. A fierce integrationist, Robinson used his immense fame to speak out against the discrimination he saw on and off the field, angering fans, the press, and even teammates who had once celebrated him for “turning the other cheek.” After baseball, he was a widely-read newspaper columnist, divisive political activist and tireless advocate for civil rights, who later struggled to remain relevant as diabetes crippled his body and a new generation of leaders set a more militant course for the civil rights movement.

MIME and Other Digital Experimentations with Medieval Islamic Maps
Grant details: FB-57108-13
Title: MIME and Other Digital Experimentations with Medieval Islamic Maps
Writer: Karen Pinto
Director: Digital Islamic Humanities, Brown University
Producer: Elias Muhanna
Abstract: I have spent the last two decades studying medieval and early modern Islamic maps in depth. These studies involved extensive on-site visits to manuscript libraries through which I collected thousands of images of medieval Islamic maps ranging in date from the eleventh century to the nineteenth. The sheer number of these extant maps tells us, at least from the thirteenth century onwards when copies of these map-manuscripts begin to proliferate, that the world was a much-depicted place. It loomed large in the medieval Muslim imagination. It was pondered, discussed, and copied with minor and major variations again and again, and all with what seems to be a peculiar idiosyncrasy to modern eyes: the cartographers did not strive for mimesis (imitation of the real world). They did not show irregular coastlines even though some of the geographers whose work includes these maps openly acknowledge that the landmasses and their coastlines are uneven. They present instead a deliberately schematic layout of the world and the regions that comprised the Islamic empire that can be best described as “carto-ideographs.” I started a digital project called MIME—Medieval Islamic Maps Encyclopedia—to place these maps on an interactive CD and online web-based format in order to make this rich resource available to scholars, students, and the general public. The mainstay of MIME are the maps found in the manuscripts of al-I??akhri, Ibn ?awqal, and al-Muqaddasi—also known as the “Islamic Atlas.” The aim of MIME is to decode the place and space matrix on these carto-ideographs so that anyone, with or without Arabic, can browse them and understand how medieval Muslim cartographic artists and their patrons perceived their world.

Paris: The Luminous Years [show prizes]
Grant details: TI-50071-07
Title: Paris: The Luminous Years
Writer: Perry Miller Adato
Director: Perry Miller Adato
Producer: Perry Miller Adato
Producer: Junko Tsunashima
Producer: Kristin Lovejoy
Abstract: From 1905 to 1930, decisive years for our contemporary culture, Paris was the epicenter of a storm of modernism. Catalyst and magnet for radical innovation and experiment, the city on the Seine was a gathering point for young creative talent from Michigan to Moscow, from Brooklyn to Barcelona. In twenty-five years they revolutionized the arts of the Western world, creating "new and fascinating forms that have become a rich part of our lives today." On-camera, dramatic and historic moments come alive in rare archival interviews, as they are recalled by participants in these legendary events, including Marc Chagall, Joan Miro, Igor Stravinsky, Jean Cocteau, Aaron Copland, Marcel Duchamp, Janet Flanner, Tristan Tzara and Sylvia Beach. In the art world's first international avant-garde, the film spotlights keys figures, tracing who came to Paris and why, their friendships, collaborations and rivalries, what they made there and how being in Paris during the luminous years transformed them and their work.

American Experience: Into the Deep: Whaling and America
Grant details: TR-50085-09
Title: American Experience: Into the Deep: Whaling and America
Writer: Ric Burns
Director: Ric Burns
Producer: Ric Burns
Producer: Bonnie Lafave
Producer: Mary Recine
Producer: Robin Espinola
Abstract: From the dawn of the seventeenth-century, when the first sea-weary pilgrims looked on in wonder as teeming pods of rights whales breached the waters off Cape Cod to the eve of the Civil War, when more than 700 of the 900 ships in the worldwide whaling fleet hailed from American ports and American whalemen dominated the globe, the epic story of the commercial pursuit of the largest creature on earth would be intimately bound up with the story of America: as a parable of American capitalism on the rise, as a case study in maritime culture at its most extreme, and as an allegory for the American, and the human experience—long before a restless sometime whaleman and would-be writer named Herman Melville ever went to sea. At once a sea adventure, a cautionary economic and environmental tale, and a mythic saga of man and nature, the film tells the saga of three centuries of American whaling—interweaving the riveting tale of the doomed whaleship Essex, which set sail from Nantucket in the summer of 1819 and the deeply moving story of a young whaleman named Herman Melville—whose own life and imaginative voyage into the deep would give rise to one of the greatest works of literature ever created by an American.

Slavery by Another Name [show prizes]
Grant details: TR-50123-10
Title: Slavery by Another Name
Writer: Sheila Curran Bernard
Director: Sam Pollard
Producer: Catherine Allan
Producer: Douglas A. Blackmon
Abstract: Slavery by Another Name challenges one of Americans’ most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. The film tells how even as chattel slavery came to an end in the South in 1865, thousands of African Americans were pulled back into forced labor with shocking force and brutality. It was a system in which men, often guilty of no crime at all, were arrested, compelled to work without pay, repeatedly bought and sold, and coerced to do the bidding of masters. Tolerated by both the North and South, forced labor lasted well into the twentieth century. Slavery by Another Name gives voice to the largely forgotten victims and perpetrators of forced labor and features their descendants living today. To help fill this void, Slavery by Another Name seeks to educate, demystify, and to capture the forgotten voices in our country’s history so we can learn and move forward as a nation.

Producer: Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning
Abstract: What is historical literacy? How does teaching with archival collections best capture for students on the elementary and secondary levels the interpretive properties of history? Central to the work of the Center on History and Education, these questions were explored by pre-service teachers in a course about the history of education in New York City. Teaching in the Archives documents students' experiences doing archival research and captures their thoughts about incorporating the archives as both a concept and practice into the teaching of history in public school classrooms.

As a sculpture-interface for viewing my New Media movies made with machinima (real-time animation captured in a 3D video game environment or virtual world), it is inspired by early motion picture viewing devices like the Mutoscope and Kinetoscope, Nam June Paik's sculptures, discourses about windows and interface in New Media scholarship, and the postphenomenological approach to technics advanced by Don Ihde that considers the embodied, hermeneutic, and alterity relations we have with artifacts like iPads, televisions, and other screens.

The Mine Wars [show prizes]
Grant details: TR-228541-15
Title: The Mine Wars
Writer: Mark Zwonitzer
Director: Randall Mark MacLowry
Producer: Randall Mark MacLowry
Abstract: The Mine Wars is a two-hour documentary for the PBS history series AMERICAN EXPERIENCE. The film tells the largely overlooked story of America's largest labor uprising, which took place in the mountains of southern West Virginia during a tumultuous period in American history. In Appalachia, the arrival of the coal industry--the primary energy source in the early 20th century--brought native mountaineers, African-American migrants, and European immigrants into a protracted struggle for their rights as working people in a changing American democracy. The film will highlight the years of violence that accompanied the miners' attempts to form a union, culminating in the Battle of Blair Mountain in 1921, the largest civil insurrection in the United States since the Civil War.

When Amahl went to a protest for refugee rights in Israel and saw there many of Mohammad’s American and European colleagues, she called him in frustration that he could not be there because of Israel’s movement restrictions. He replied with a generous provocation: “Why don’t you take pictures for me?” From there begins an exchange of photographs and a set of video explorations about expression, mobility, Palestinian collectivity, and the limits of what one friend can do for another.

Mission US Webinar: Revolutionary Learning: Interactive History Games for All Secondary Social Studies Students
Grant details: HK-250704-16
Title: Mission US Webinar: Revolutionary Learning: Interactive History Games for All Secondary Social Studies Students
Writer: n/a
Abstract: This webinar explores ways for middle and high school students to “live” transformational moments in U.S. history through the Mission US educational gaming series. Presenter Peter Mabli, Assistant Director of Online Professional Development at the American Social History Project, uses the first Mission US game, “For Crown or Colony?,” to introduce effective ways to integrate “serious games” into U.S. history curriculum. The session unpacks ways to integrate gaming with document-based activities, writing prompts, and other resources in a range of learning environments. It showcases ideas for independent, small group, whole class and flipped learning approaches, while meeting rigorous content and instructional standards. Technology-infused gaming can help students experience a more personal, memorable, and meaningful connection with complex historical content, as they learn to think like historians, develop historical empathy, and discover the role of ordinary men, women, and young people in U.S. history. This session will be of particular benefit to middle and high school teachers and librarians, as well as curriculum specialists and instructional technology specialists. The webinar also discusses strategies for including English language learners and struggling readers in the full learning experience.

Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin

Title: Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin
Writer: Arwen Curry
Director: Arwen Curry
Producer: Arwen Curry
Abstract: Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin is a feature documentary exploring the remarkable life and legacy of the late feminist author Ursula K. Le Guin. Best known for groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy works such as A Wizard of Earthsea, The Left Hand of Darkness, and The Dispossessed, Le Guin defiantly held her ground on the margin of “respectable” literature until the sheer excellence of her work, at long last, forced the mainstream to embrace fantastic literature. Her fascinating story has never before been captured on film. Produced with Le Guin’s participation over the course of a decade, Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin is a journey through the writer’s career and her worlds, both real and fantastic. Viewers will join the writer on an intimate journey of self-discovery as she comes into her own as a major feminist author, opening new doors for the imagination and inspiring generations of women and other marginalized writers along the way. The film features stunning animation and reflections by literary luminaries including Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, Michael Chabon, and more. Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin was created with the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, California Humanities, the Berkeley Film Foundation, and 3,185 backers on Kickstarter.

Flintknapping: Merging Body and Mind
Grant details: RZ-255635-17
Title: Flintknapping: Merging Body and Mind
Writer: Felicia De Pena
Director: N/A
Producer: N/A
Abstract: "Flintknapping: Merging Mind and Body", ARF Brownbag (UC Berkeley), 4 April 2018. My work is focused on situating the transmission of flintknapping knowledge between mobile Epipaleolithic (20,000 - 10,500 BP) hunter-gatherer peoples of the Levant through chaîne opératoire. By refitting bladelet cores at Kharaneh IV, Jordan, I strive to identify how individuals learned to flintknap, from raw material acquisition through the production of the final tool. I view the knowledge transmission process as a proxy for culture, as apprentices took on new ideas and identities to fit within a community of practice, the apprentice may have lost (or maintained) kinship ties yet subscribed to a more meaningful relationship within their community of practice. Kharaneh IV is an Early and Middle Epipaleolithic aggregation site well -situated for this research to examine the learning process due to its well-preserved stratigraphy numerous caches, and hut structures, which allows for observation of repetitive practices and identification of changes in technique. Current (and future) experimental flintknapping events in conjunction with 3D imaging and core refitting have been employed to establish baseline knowledge regarding the relationship between skill level and social structures that influence the production process.

Migration and Housing: A Century of Color Lines
Grant details: GW-261139-18
Title: Migration and Housing: A Century of Color Lines
Writer: Newberry Library
Director: Newberry Library
Producer: Newberry Library
Abstract: During the 20th century African Americans, Latinos, and Asian-Americans migrated to Chicago from other parts of the country and the world. European-descended residents and recent immigrants responded to these migrations with policies and choices that segregated the city. The 1919 Race Riots in particular set in motion efforts to keep groups of people separate, utilizing a powerful combination of violence, intimidation, and law - from neighborhood associations and restrictive covenants to redlining and contract purchase schemes. Today we have still not solved how to break down the spatial boundaries that separate Chicagoans. Leading the conversation were Lee Bey, architectural critic, photographer, and writer; Dr. Tanesha House, speaker, educator, consultant, and west side activist; and Brad Hunt from the Newberry Library, a historian of housing in Chicago.

Segregation and Public Education: Separate and Not Equal in 20th-Century Chicago
Grant details: GW-261139-18
Title: Segregation and Public Education: Separate and Not Equal in 20th-Century Chicago
Writer: Newberry Library
Director: Newberry Library
Producer: Newberry Library
Abstract: This program explored how the legacy of the 1919 riots and the resulting hardening of segregation influenced the trajectory of Chicago’s education system. Elizabeth Todd-Breland, Assistant Professor of History at the University of Illinois at Chicago and author of A Political Education: Black Politics and Education Reform in Chicago Since the 1960s, provided an overview of the history of segregation in Chicago's public schools, and especially the relationship between segregation in housing and in schooling, from the early 20th century through the 1970s. Jen Johnson, Chief of Staff at Chicago Teacher's Union and Former CPS History Teacher, discussed how she dealt with teaching this aspect of the city's history to public school students; and also addressed the current state of school segregation and contemporary organizing. The two speakers then engaged in a wide-ranging conversation with each other and opened the discussion to questions and feedback from the audience.

Chicago 1919: Confronting the Race Riots Opening Event
Grant details: GW-261139-18
Title: Chicago 1919: Confronting the Race Riots Opening Event
Writer: Newberry Library
Director: Newberry Library
Producer: Newberry Library
Abstract: The Chicago 1919 Race Riots were the most violent week in Chicago history, sparked by the death of Eugene Williams, an African American teenager stoned and drowned by a white man for floating his raft over an invisible line into a whites-only South Side beach. The police refused to arrest the white perpetrator, and the city erupted in arson, looting, and thirty-eight deaths (23 black, 15 white), until the National Guard was called to restore order. The riots inflicted lasting scars on the city, still visible in the lines of segregation throughout the city's built environment, its schools, and its selective policing. The Opening Event of our year-long series of conversations on the history and legacy of the 1919 race riots. What happened one hundred years ago on a Chicago beach during a sweltering summer day? How and why did violence erupt across the city? What were the effects of the riots in the ensuing decades? And what can we learn from the past that might help us imagine a better future?

Bessie Coleman rough cut
Grant details: TD-261055-18
Title: Bessie Coleman rough cut
Writer: Charlotte Mangin
Director: Charlotte Mangin
Producer: Charlotte Mangin
Abstract: The pilot episode rough cut (07:05) tells the story of the life and times of Bessie Coleman (1892-1926), the first African American female pilot, highlighting her achievements, putting them into a historical context, and demonstrating her legacy on future generations of black aviators. The important events of Coleman’s biography are intercut with various humanities themes, including: challenges to gender roles and race-based limitations, technological change, class issues, historical events like the Great Migration, race riots, segregation, the Ku Klux Klan, and lynchings, and the limited but nonetheless real opportunities for black women in the new industrial urban age at the turn of the 20th century. The video showcases our signature style, mixing archival black and white photographs, films, and newspaper images together with Chabannes’ unique and colorful artwork and animations. It features on-camera interviews with playwright and actress Madeline McCray, who wrote a play about Coleman (“A Dream to Fly”) and was profoundly influenced by her, and U.S. Air Force Colonel Merryl Tengesdal, the first and only African American woman to fly the U2 plane, and one of only 4% of pilots in the U.S. today who are women. Narration signposts critical facts about Coleman’s life and context, and voice-over brings her own voice back to life with quotations pulled from newspaper interviews she conducted during her lifetime. The music is contemporary, and the editing style is fast-paced and dynamic. All members of our academic advisory board have provided feedback along the way, and have signed off on this rough cut. Please note the following caveats: -Archive is TEMP/not yet licensed, and some images are watermarked -Some animations are still in storyboard phase -Voice-Over and Narration are TEMP -Music is TEMP -Video is not sound mixed -Video is not color corrected

AMERICAN MASTERS--Sammy Davis, Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me
Grant details: TR-228469-15
Title: AMERICAN MASTERS--Sammy Davis, Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me
Writer: Laurence Maslon
Director: Sam Pollard
Producer: Sally Rosenthal
Producer: Michael Kantor
Abstract: “Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me” is the first major film documentary to examine Davis’ vast talent and his journey for identity through the shifting tides of civil rights and racial progress during 20th-century America. Sammy Davis, Jr. had the kind of career that was indisputably legendary, so vast and multi-faceted that it was dizzying in its scope and scale. And yet, his life was complex, complicated and contradictory. Davis strove to achieve the American Dream in a time of racial prejudice and shifting political territory. He was the veteran of increasingly outdated show business traditions trying to stay relevant; he frequently found himself bracketed by the bigotry of white America and the distaste of black America; he was the most public black figure to embrace Judaism, thereby yoking his identity to another persecuted minority. Featuring new interviews with such luminaries as Billy Crystal, Norman Lear, Jerry Lewis, Whoopi Goldberg and Kim Novak, with never-before-seen photographs from Davis’ vast personal collection and excerpts from his electric performances in television, film and concert, “Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me” explores the life and art of a uniquely gifted entertainer whose trajectory blazed across the major flashpoints of American society from the Depression through the 1980s.

Grant details: TR-250079-16
Title: Korea: The Never-Ending War
Writer: John Maggio
Director: John Maggio
Producer: Jeff Bieber
Producer: Tom Denison
Producer: Dalton Delan
Abstract: Written and produced by John Maggio and narrated by Korean-American actor John Cho, Korea: The Never-Ending War sheds new light on the global upheaval that led to the Korean War in 1950, a moment when the Cold War turned hot, and how today that war's brutal legacy has forced the world into a deadly nuclear showdown. With testimony from the soldiers on the frontlines, civilians caught in the crossfire, political leaders from then and now, journalists and historians, the film is a comprehensive re-examination of a war that took the lives of tens of thousands of American GIs and millions of Koreans. It is a war that has raged for generations. A war that most Americans don't remember, and Koreans can never forget. The film documents how the conflict has continued post-1953; the events that triggered North Korea's nuclear program; and South Korea's economic expansion. The consequences of the war's stalemate contribute to a dangerous stand-off between north and South Korea, the United States and China. The 'end' of this conflict is still an open question.

Writer: test
Writer: James LeBrecht
Director: Jim LeBrecht

Abstract: Just down the road from Woodstock, in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a parallel revolution blossomed in a ramshackle summer camp for disabled teenagers. Steeped in humor and the music of the era, Crip Camp explores the universal experience of summer camp awakenings that would transform lives and shape the future of the disability rights movement. Told from the point of view of former camper Jim LeBrecht, the film traces the journeys of campers - both successful and tragic - up to the present day, in this compelling and untold story of a powerful journey towards inclusion.

The State of Equality: Wyoming Women Get the Vote
Grant details: FT-254705-17
Title: The State of Equality: Wyoming Women Get the Vote
Writer: Wyoming PBS
Director: Wyoming PBS
Producer: Wyoming PBS
Abstract: On December 10th, 1869 the territory of Wyoming ratified into law the right for women to vote. Stories abound across the state regarding the reasons why Wyoming women were granted the right to vote 150 years ago. Was it a question of statehood; or did citizens respect the vital role women played in ranching, farming, community, business and family rearing; or did it have to do with a tie breaking vote by a controversial brothel owner from South Pass City? These are all questions that WyomingPBS, in partnership with Caldera Productions, address in “The State of Equality.”

Video recordings of Saul Kripke's Spring 2018 Seminar "Theories of Truth"
Grant details: RQ-255700-17
Title: Video recordings of Saul Kripke's Spring 2018 Seminar "Theories of Truth"
Writer: Saul Kripke
Director: Romina Padro
Abstract: The topic of this seminar is truth in the sense formulated by Tarski, that is, as a semantic notion (if one doesn’t like the idea of truth being a semantic notion, one could think of it as the notion of ‘expressing a truth’). As is well known, there are problems, generated by various paradoxes, the most famous being the Liar. We will discuss, among other things, Tarski’s original approach and how it might be extended. The relevance of Gödel’s work, and alternative ways of looking at the (first) Gödel incompleteness theorem. And, of course, my own work in this area, which in addition to a treatment of truth, mentions some other ways of looking at the Gödel incompleteness theorem. I also hope to discuss the relevance of various fixed points and alternative valuation schemes. In addition, the view, advocated by Yablo and others, that Truth Tellers ought to be definitely false, not indeterminate, and how this might be developed in my own approach. If time permits, we may discuss later developments, alternatives or extensions of my own work (such as the revision theory of truth, Hartry Field’s approach, our own Graham Priest’s dialetheist treatment, etc.).

Video recordings of the 2019 Fall seminar, “Truth and the Liar Paradox”.
Grant details: RQ-255700-17
Title: Video recordings of the 2019 Fall seminar, “Truth and the Liar Paradox”.
Writer: Hartry Field, Saul Kripke, and Graham Priest
Director: Yale Weiss
Producer: Romina Padro
Abstract: Between the 1930s and the 1970s there was a general consensus amongst logicians that the best solution to the Liar and related paradoxes was Tarskian: no language can be allowed to contain its own truth predicate. In the 1970s this consensus disappeared, and it is now more generally held that an appropriate solution should accommodate a language with its own truth predicate. How that should be done is, of course, another matter. In this course, we will be reading and discussing a number of papers that deal with that issue from a variety of different perspectives. Topics to be discussed include (hopefully): classical vs non-classical logic, definitions of truth vs axiomatic theories, fixed point constructions, dialetheism, conditionals and restricted quantification, revenge paradoxes, sub-structural solutions.

Video recordings of the seminar, Elementary Recursion Theory and its Application to Formal Systems
Grant details: RQ-255700-17
Title: Video recordings of the seminar, Elementary Recursion Theory and its Application to Formal Systems
Writer: Saul Kripke
Director: Romina Padro
Producer: Romina Padro
Abstract: This class will consist in my own introductory approach to recursion (computability) theory. Some of its basic results, though very easily recognized as true by experts, are not usually given as foundational in textbooks. My approach tries to tie recursion theory to basic ideas in formal logic. Topics to be covered include: the intuitive concept of computability and its formal counterparts, the status of Church’s Thesis, my RE language, the basic ‘generated sets theorem’ and the ‘upwards generated sets theorem’, the enumeration theorem, the road from the inconsistency of the unrestricted comprehension principle to the Gödel – Tarski theorems, the narrow and broad languages of arithmetic, Cantor’s diagonal principle, different versions of Gödel’s Theorem, an enumeration theorem for partial recursive functions, languages with a recursively enumerable but non-recursive set of formulae, the uniform effective form of Gödel’s theorem, the second incompleteness theorem, the self-reference lemma, the Tarski-Mostowski-Robinson theorem, the enumeration operator fixed-point theorem, the first and second recursion theorems, and the jump operator. If time permits, we may be able to cover the arithmetical hierarchy and the jump hierarchy, the ω-rule, hyperarithmetical and ∆_1^1 sets, Borel sets, Π_1^1 sets, normal form theorems, the Baire category theorem, incomparable degrees, and related topics.

Abstract: This film is about people’s singer, songwriter, and Maoist cultural leader Khusiram Pakhrin’s musical journey through nearly 4 decades of political movements and revolution in Nepal. This is the first film about Nepal’s revolutionary singer-songwriter Khusiram Pakhrin, and so far the only film that focuses on the songs of Nepal’s Maoist movement. From the 1980s through 2006, their live performances were often banned and rarely photographed or recorded; hence we rely on Khusiram Pakhrin and his fellow performers for oral history and rare photos and footage of underground performances.
