Interchange – Beyond Description: Witnessing Historical Trauma

Play

Tonight’s program is one half of a collaboration with WFHB’s Books Unbound centered around a memoir of a first-person eyewitness account written by Wang Xiuchu of the 1645 Massacre in Yangzhou, China, called, in English, An Account of Ten days at Yangzhou. This memoir will be featured this Saturday at 5 pm on Books Unbound. The Massacre at Yangzhou was translated by Lynn Struve, and the memoir is read by Eric Rensberger.

 Tonight we hear from Lynn Struve about this memoir as well as the historical context in which it takes place. We’ll also get some idea about how to think about the events in the narrative. But this story has two voices. Wang Xiuchu lives the events–but he is one of the crowd, lucky (if he can be called lucky) to escape death. There is also the voice of Shi Kefa, who was the soldier statesmen responsible for defending Yangzhou at the time of the Massacre. Frank Buczolich reads a letter home from Shi Kefa, the man who has come to represent the epitome of patriotic Chinese resistance to modern nationalistic writers. But we should not be so sanguine about that particular interpretation of history. Wang Xiuchu, and Lynn Struve, help us with that.

Patsy Rahn, a local poet who works in the Education Department of the Indiana University Art Museum, introduces her interview with retired IU professor, Chinese scholar and translator, Lynn Struve for Interchange.

Script assistance from Cynthia Wolfe.

Interchange – A Box Within a Box Within a Box: The Riddle of the Raintree

Play

As I considered making a show to serve as a kind of year in review, I first thought to choose my favorite program from each month of the year, 12 shows, excerpt 3 minutes for flavor, a bit of commentary or set-up. Well, when I got to the month of May and saw three weeks of Raintree County–and remembered my interest and involvement with this book and the world of its author and his suicide at the peak of his worldly success–I made a new plan. My most important story of 2014, reading and thinking about Raintree County in the 100th anniversary of the author’s birth.

Raintree County was published in 1948, the same year as Indiana University professor Alfred Kinsey’s Sexual Behavior in the Human Male and these two authors and these two books might actually illuminate each other.

Also, a quick note to let you know that the music you hear within these programs is from the soundtrack to the movie Raintree County, the 1957 film starring Elizabeth Taylor, Montgomery Clift, Eva Marie Saint and Lee Marvin. Johnny Green was the composer.

Part I excerpts the May 6th episode Taking the Measure of Raintree County and my guests are Don Gray, emeritus professor of English literature at Indiana University; Eric Sandweiss, Carmony Chair in the Department of History at IU and Editor of the Indiana Magazine of History; and Cherry Williams, Curator of Manuscripts at The Lilly Library at Indiana University. Much of this episode focused on an exhibit of Lockridge Jr.’s personal papers, manuscripts, and family memorabilia showcased at the Lilly Library, in particular the one artifact that serves as the novel’s framing device, The Illustrated Historical Atlas of Henry County Indiana of 1875.

Part II excerpts the May 13th program which consisted of my interview with Ross Lockridge Jr.’s second son, Larry Lockridge, whose biography Shade of the Raintree was re-issued by Indiana University Press this year in a 20th anniversary edition.

Part III excerpts my interview with Ernest Lockridge, the oldest of son of the Ross Lockridge, Jr. and author of several novels, Prince Elmo’s Fire being the most successful, and a kind of photo expose/memoir called The Skeleton Key to the Suicide of My Father.

Interchange – The Hoarders: Pathologizing the Packrat

Play

We’re joined by Scott Herring, author of The Hoarders, a cultural history of the recent DSM-5 diagnosis of Hoarding Disorder. We talk about famous pack rats such as the Collyer Brothers of Harlem, Andy Warhol, and Big Edie and Little Edie Beale from the documentary Grey Gardens. Herring argues that this new disease has a significant–and overlooked–cultural back story from the 1930s to the present.

Also discussed: Ralph and Terry Kovel, authors of a nationally syndicated collectibles column that began in 1955; and Sandra Felton, “The Organizer Lady” and founder of “Messies Anonymous.”

Scott Herring is an associate professor in the Department of English at Indiana University.

Interchange – Breaking the Rulers: The Neoliberal University

Play

One tends to get easily bogged down and confused by the jargon used to describe particular powerful factions in our mislabeled Democracy and it’s hard not to think this is intentional on the part of pundits and policy wonks at billionaire-funded think-tanks. In this episode we try to make clear what the term Neoliberal means and see how it can be applied to the world of the American University, and in the process hope to identify the way the University system has come to view the student as only an industrial widget–a consumer of edutainment–and a commodity in the “free market” calculus.

Guests:

Jon Simons, an Associate Professor of Communication and Culture at Indiana University Bloomington. His research is about cultural theory, the connection between popular culture and politics, and images of peace in the Israeli peace movement. He is a member of the newly formed Faculty Governance Caucus that successfully ran a slate for the last Bloomington Faculty Council elections.

David Fisher, a professor of mathematics at IUB. He works on geometry and dynamics and is particularly interested in objects with lots of symmetry. He is a member of the newly formed Faculty Governance Caucus that successfully ran a slate for the last Bloomington Faculty Council elections. In 2011, he organized a petition which played a role in reversing IU’s attempt to turn health insurance into a mode of monitoring employee health.

Cassidy Sugimoto, an Assistant Professor in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington. She studies and teaches in the areas of scholarly communication and scientometrics. Her most recent book compilations have looked at the historical criticism of scholarly metrics and have explored the proliferation of novel forms of tools for scholarly assessment. She has been active in shared governance at IUB since her arrival in 2010 and is currently serving as President-Elect of the Bloomington Faculty Council.
