Interchange – Unprotected: On Cybersecurity

Play

Host Doug Storm is joined by David Delaney from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Steve Myers from the School of Informatics and Computing to talk about cybersecurity in the public and private sphere.

From the recent hack into Sony Industries ostensibly perpetrated by North Korea to oil pipeline sabotage in Turkey, both our physical places and our digital spaces are vulnerable to almost anyone or any “nation-state” with the right skill-set and knowledge. As guest Steve Myers said, uranium isn’t cheap, but people with computer knowledge are.

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.
