Deepening our understanding of Nazi-directed Genocide. When linked to the Holocaust, the term “historical revision” often implies a soft-pedaling of Nazi Germany’s mid-twentieth-century attempt to destroy Europe’s Jewish population. Distinct from these pernicious efforts, historical understandings of the Holocaust have nonetheless evolved, situating it with broader scholarship on genocide, the experiences of refugees and migrants, and evolving concepts of human rights.

50 years ago, the first two computers “spoke” to each other over the ARPANET in December 1969. A message was transferred over the ARPANET from a computer science professor’s laboratory at the University of California, Los Angeles to the second network node at the Stanford Research Institute. From that moment, the Internet was born.

The 20th century bore witness to dramatic transformations in the world order and major shifts in national and cultural boundaries. Artists frequently emerged as ambassadors for the people they represented, and composers, in particular, harnessed art song as a means of defining and expressing the unique character of a nation. To set the stage for this project, Jay Winter and Ceri Owen join Nicholas Phan to explore how art song was historically used to understand national identity, especially during times of great social, political, and cultural change.
