Voices from the Canefields: Folksongs from Japanese Immigrant Workers in Hawaii

Folk songs are short stories from the souls of common people. Some, like Mexican corridos or Scottish ballads, reworked in the Appalachias, are stories of tragic or heroic episodes. Others, like the African American blues, reach from a difficult present back into slavery and forward into a troubled future. Japanese workers in Hawaii's plantations created their own versions, in form more akin to their traditional tanka or haiku poetry.

Can Culture be Shut Down? Bosnia's Cultural Institutions and World Heritage

On October 4, 2012, Bosnia’s National Museum in Sarajevo closed its doors. Another six key cultural institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina likely face the same future, due to uncertain funding and legal status: Multitudes of key valuable works of art, artifacts, and books would be closed to the public and subject to possible theft, vandalism, or deterioration. On March 4, 2013, more than 300 institutions across 40 countries participated in a Museum Day of Solidarity with these seven threatened institutions by “X-ing” out one work of art to the public for one day.
