From swastika to Jim Crow( Visual )

Before and during the Second World War Jewish scholars who escaped Nazi Germany and immigrated to the U.S. faced an uncertain future. Confronted with anti-Semitism at major universities and a public distrust of foreigners, a surprising number secured teaching positions at historically Black colleges in the South. In many cases they formed lasting relationships with their students and had an important impact on the communities in which they lived. This is a story of two cultures, each sharing a burden of oppression, brought together by the tragic circumstances of war
Chinatown files by Amy Chen( Visual )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Chinatown Files is the first video documentary to explore the legacy of McCarthyism on the Chinese American community. For the first time, seven men and women speak out on how they and their friends were investigated and persecuted by government agents during the McCarthy witch-hunts of the fifties. At the height of the hysteria, thousands of Chinese immigrants and American citizens of Chinese descent were investigated because of their ethnicity and alleged risk to national security. As China remains an enigma to many Americans, the prejudice and jingoism that traumatized the lives of Chinese Americas for decades has rarely been examined."--Www.chinatownfiles.org

Music and technology( Visual )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New instrument types and new electronic media for distribution are obvious results of technology, but so were the first bone flute and the first stretched catgut. How technology affects music is examined here in a case study of the flute, and in an aexamination of developing recording and composing technologies where the roles of composer, musician, arranger, and conductor begin to fuse."--Faculty manual
The transformative power of music( Visual )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Music can inspire religious devotion, prepare individuals for war, motivate work, enrich play, and stimulate the passions.

Music and memory( Visual )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Music links mankind to its past, working through cultural and personal memory.

Melody( Visual )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Melody -- the part of music we most often remember -- is examined here both scientifically and poetically, from a strict sequence of pitches to a group of notes 'in love with each other'. We see and hear melodies shaped, elaborated, and developed within Western classical music, the Arabic maqam tradition, Irish dance music and sean-nós singing, and Indian raga."--Faculty manual
Transmission learning music( Visual )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Timbre the color of music( Visual )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tone color of music -- or 'timbre', as we call it in the Western tradition -- is influenced by both technical and aesthetic facotrs. This program examines the creation and effects of timbre in jazz and Indian, West African, Irish, Bosnian, Indonesian gamelan and Japanese musics."--Faculty manual
Harmony( Visual )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Texture( Visual )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The way that different voices and instruments work together to produce the overall sound gives music its texture. This program examines texture in Japanese shakuhachi, Trinidadian steel band, Bosnian ganga, West African percussion, and modern Australian choral music."--Faculty guide
Form the shape of music( Visual )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Form -- the way music is organized and structured from beginning to end -- guides composers, performers, and listeners in all musics. Here, the traditional Western sonata, the blueprints behind improvisational jazz, the narrative structure of traditional Japanese music, call-and-response forms in West African music and American gospel, and Irish fiddle tunes exemplify worldwide variations in musical form."--Faculty manual
Composers and improvisors( Visual )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How are a composer and an improvisor alike? How are they different? The marriage between fixed elements and new variation is examined in American rock, Indian raga, classical and contemporary Western music, jazz, and Arabic classical music."--Faculty guide
