Fiske, David Broadway Goes to War: "Soldier Shows" of World War I History,
Media- Other
During the first World War, presentations called "soldier shows" allowed theatrical producers to not only entertain the public, but provide a show of patriotism. Some of these shows were put together by individuals who served in the military (such as Sergeant Irving Berlin), though others had no military background. The shows were light entertainment, featuring skits and musical numbers, and utilized many performers who were actually in the service. Proceeds from soldier shows went to projects intended to improve the lives of those serving in the armed forces of the United States.

Fein, Jonathan Objects and Memory History,
Media- Film,
Museums
What are the things in our homes and museums that mean the most to us? How do we preserve the past and speak to the future? What would you save if your house were on fire? Why do we join together in community in times of turmoil? Using excerpts from the PBS documentary film Objects and Memory, filmmaker Jonathan Fein raises questions about fundamental human responses and how we navigate through a fragile and chaotic world by using otherwise ordinary things that have become irreplaceable conveyors of identity, experience, and aspiration. Focusing on stories of meaningful objects invites discussion of issues of value, memory, contemporary history, museum collecting, heirlooms, artistic response, and authenticity. This entertaining and stimulating presentation excites the sense of wonder and challenges the audience to question what is taken for granted and what we hold most dear.
