Conference Responses to Crises in the EU 2017-02-24 All Day
Description

Senior Workshops/Panel discussions -
The Politics of the Euro Crisis: The Creation of New EU Institutions and their Impact on Member States

Two days of workshops and panel discussions bring together an interdisciplinary group of international academic experts from the fields of Political Science, History, Economics, Business, and Law as well as policy practitioners, to examine the institutions built by the European Union (EU) in response to the economic crisis. By examining individual crisis measures introduced by the EU and exploring in depth the functioning of the measures, scholars will ask why these institutions in particular were selected but not others. Topics such as banking integration, bank bailouts, the European Systemic Risk Board, deposit guarantees, sovereign bailouts, the European Central Bank, and fiscal union, as well as innovations in EU governance and political leadership through the crisis will be explored. These sessions are co-sponsored by a SSHRC Connection grant, the EUCE, the Centre for Global Studies, and the Departments of Political Science and Economics and the School of Business.

The sessions will build upon research currently being led by Dr. Amy Verdun as part of a SSHRC project entitled ‘The Politics of the Euro Crisis: The Creation of New EU Institutions and their Impact on Member States’. 

Feb 24 sessions will be at the University Club, University of Victoria, 9:00 - 4:00
Feb 25 sessions will be at the Laurel Point Inn, 9:00 - Noon

Film ARRIVAL 2017-02-24 15:00:00
Description

ARRIVAL

Director: Denis Villeneuve; USA, 2016, 117 min; PG

NOMINATED FOR 8 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE!

Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner play academics enlisted by the military to establish contact when alien spacecraft land on Earth in Denis Villeneuve's magisterial new movie. How refreshing to watch a film of this type in which no cities are destroyed. Anchored by Adams' internalized but deeply emotional performance, this is grown-up sci-fi that sustains tension while striking affecting chords on love and loss. –The Hollywood Reporter

 “An eerie, tantalizing, altogether superb puzzler.”New York Magazine

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-02-24 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Other Beyond conservation: facing the reality of biodiversity in a human-dominated world 2017-02-24 11:45:00
Description

The Talk:  The majority of the world’s ecosystems have been profoundly altered by human activities in ways that are essentially irreversible. Global population growth will place ever greater demands on ecosystems and the services that they provide. Using examples from waterway management in Australia, I will discuss the issue of how we manage ecosystems within the bounds of what society demands from them, and in the context of regional factors such as climate change, habitat fragmentation and species invasions. I will argue that restoration is most often an unrealistic goal, and that rebuilding and managing ecosystems for a range of values is the challenge that ecologists truly face. Using data from major environmental management interventions including landscape-scale revegetation, invasive animal control and environmental flow provision I will describe the challenges in restoring, remediating and re-engineering natural ecosystems.

Professor Ross Thompson is Director, Chair of Water Science and an ARC Future Fellow in the Institute for Applied Ecology at the University of Canberra. Ross is a freshwater ecologist with interests in the study of biodiversity and the restoration of landscapes. His fundamental research is in food web ecology; seeking the rules that determine how natural communities assemble and persist. His applied research addresses the ways in which food webs can be influenced by anthropogenic factors including urbanisation, land clearance, pharmaceutical contamination, river flow diversion and restoration, and invasion. He has an active research program on aquatic biodiversity and ecosystem function in urban and rural landscapes. Ross has published more than 80 papers, 10 book chapters and more than 200 scientific reports. He sits on the Australian Research Council College of Experts and has recently stepped down from the NZ Marsden Panel. His work has strong links to government and industry, and Ross sits on a number of senior technical advisory panels for local, state and federal research programs.

Lecture/Seminar Mapping, Indigenous research ethics, and the 'Global War on Tribes' 2017-02-24 14:45:00
Description

Zoltán Grossman
Professor, Geography and Native American & World Indigenous Peoples Studies, Evergreen State College, Olympia Washington

This is a review of the controversial Bowman Expeditions “México Indígena” project, a University of Kansas participatory mapping project in Oaxaca that was funded by and shared data with the U.S. Army’s Foreign Military Studies Office.  Dr. Grossman, a former co-chair of the American Association of Geographers’ Indigenous Peoples Specialty Group in 2008-10, will discuss how exposure of the project sparked an examination of geographers’ research ethics in working with Indigenous communities. He will look at the project in the context of the privatization of Indigenous communal lands, and global counterinsurgency campaigns focused on “tribal regions.”

Zoltán Grossman is Professor of Geography and Native American & World Indigenous Peoples Studies at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.  He is author of Unlikely Alliances: Native Nations and White Communities Join to Defend Rural Lands (University of Washington Press, 2017), and co-editor of Asserting Native Resilience: Pacific Rim Indigenous Nations Face the Climate Crisis (Oregon State University Press, 2012).

Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-02-24 10:00
Description

This exhibition celebrates the career of Kwakiutl (Kwakwaka'wakw) carver Ellen Neel (1916-1966), the first woman carver of monumental totem poles. Further, it acknowledges Neel's influential role as a professional artist and her contribution towards the recognition of Northwest Coast Indian art as a contemporary art form.

"Our art continues to live, for not only is it part and parcel of us, but can be a powerful factor in combining the best part of Indian culture with the fabric of a truly Canadian art form."

Ellen Neel
