Film "CALVARY" 2014-10-24 15:00:00
Description

CALVARY
Director: John Michael McDonagh   Ireland, 2014, 101 min; 14A
Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly

FOUR STARS! A darkly funny look at the nature of faith in a world gone wrong, starring Brendan Gleeson as a good priest in a small parish in the west of Ireland. Taking confession, Father James hears something he's never heard before: "I'm going to kill you," the man on the other side of the screen vows. The parishioner explains that as an altar boy he was sexually abused. To punish Father James for the sins of his fellow priests seems like the perfect, ironic act of retribution. Gleeson's priest has a week to get his life in order. “Terrific fodder for conversation long after its credits roll.” ---RogerEbert.com

Lecture/Seminar Dr. Hugh Elton "The Discovery of a Lost Roman City at Alahan, Turkey" 2014-10-24 14:30:00
Description

Professor Hugh Elton (Trent University) 
"The Discovery of a Lost Roman City at Alahan, Turkey"

Friday October 24, 2014, 2:30 pm
Seminar in Clearihue B415

In the course of a recent field survey in southern Turkey around the churches at Alahan, a small Roman city was discovered. This talk explains the context for the fieldwork, the discovery of the city, and suggests a possible identification. As a result of the discovery, our interpretation of the famous churches needs to be changed, as they no longer sit in majestic isolation on top of a hillside, but now lie in the suburbs of the city.

Critical DH Group – All welcome!

Fall 2014 - Spring 2015

Based in part upon the public discussion of the concept of Critical Digital Humanities at The Many Masks/Masques of Heidegger: Technology, Poeisis and Humanism: A Literary Theory Research Group Symposium (The Seminar for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, Vancouver Island University, Cowichan Campus, May 2014), Professor Richard J. Lane (MeTA DH Lab, VIU) and Professor Emile Fromet de Rosnay (Dept. of French, UVic), now invite the academic community to meet to discuss some of the theoretical interests sketched so far (see lists below). While these lists are obviously in no way exhaustive, they do form the focus for the first year that this group aims to meet.

We invite position papers of five to ten minutes on the topics below (or simply join us to hear the papers and hopefully join in with some discussion). We are open to theoretical considerations/presentations of DH projects underway, especially where such projects intersect with the concepts, methods, and/or theorists we aim to explore in our first year.

Concepts, methods, etc.

Dialectical materialism
Materiality
Little data
Close reading vs distant reading
media, mediation, remediation
DH and postcolonialism (#dhpoco)
Institutionalized DH
DH and social sciences - anthropology, sociology, geography etc.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-24 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated by lessLIE

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

In this exhibition the theme of perpetuation unifies the work of five contemporary Coast Salish artists who live and work in this region. The word perpetuation is meant to suggest a continuum of ideas and processes, which come from distinctive traditions that have existed over millennia. Perpetuation also infers some of the challenges that contemporary Coast Salish artists continue to face in the contexts of colonialism and assimilation as well as the dominance of other Indigenous traditions, which were often favoured by the art world, in both commercial and educational contexts. It is only in the last three decades that Coast Salish art has become more readily recognized by a wider audience as distinct from other Northwest Coast traditions.

This exhibition presents a wide range of art forms and ideas, and visitors will gain a better understanding of the cultural and stylistic elements that unify and inspire these contemporary artists in their own artistic practices. Artists featured are Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, John Marston, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.

Other Arts, Spaces, Communities - AHVS Grad Student Symposium - Call for Papers 2014-10-24 08:00:00
Description

Visual Impetus XIII: Arts, Spaces, Communities

Graduate Student Research Symposium
Department of Art History and Visual Studies, University of Victoria

There is an increasing need for an understanding of visual culture not just in the arts but also across all disciplines. Often the examination of art places less emphasis on the effects of visual culture on its surrounding environment.  Yet so much knowledge can be gained by looking at how the locations, spaces, communities, and encompassing materials impact and engage with the arts.  Art has the power to define physical boundaries, reflect social values, bring people together, and even drive economic development.  The organizers of Visual Impetus XIV seek presentations that address visual culture, which have impacted or changed spaces and communities from around the world.

We welcome submissions from graduate students of all disciplines, as long as the content focuses on the arts or visual culture. Please send your paper proposal, consisting of a 250-word abstract and brief CV, to the symposium organizational committee.

Submissions must be made via email by December 1, 2014 to Committee Chair Regan Shrumm: rshrumm@gmail.com

Please include your full name, student status, contact information, and schedule availability with your submission. Presentations must not exceed fifteen minutes in length.

Visual Impetus XIV will take place on January 30th and 31th at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia.
