Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2015-01-29 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Lecture/Seminar Dr. David Rupp, "Over three decades of archaeological discoveries by the Canadian Institute in Greece" 2015-01-29 19:30:00
Description

Classical Association of Vancouver Island
Fourth Meeting of the 2014/2015 Academic Year
Thursday, January 29th at 7:30 pm in Clearihue A212

Dr. David Rupp (Director, Canadian Institute in Greece) will present a lecture entitled "Over three decades of archaeological discoveries by the Canadian Institute in Greece."

Officially recognized in 1976 by the Greek government, the then Canadian Archaeological Institute at Athens (CAIA) conducted its first archaeological fieldwork project at Kastro Khostion in western Boeotia in 1980. From that period the members of the CAIA, since 2005 the Canadian Institute in Greece (CIG), have organized 16 other research projects in almost every part of Greece. This research has included pedestrian survey and excavation as well as underwater reconnaissance and geophysical investigations.  The chronological periods involved span the third millennium BCE to the Early Modern period. Many of these investigations were collaborative efforts with our Greek colleagues in the Hellenic Archaeological Service. CIG has made an indelible mark on Greek archaeology since its beginning. This lecture will highlight the work of selected recent archaeological projects that illustrate the great diversity of Canadian research as well as the lasting importance of the results for the understanding the development of the cultures in the Aegean basin from the Late Bronze Age of the 14th - 12th centuries BCE to the Early Byzantine period of the 6th and 7th centuries CE. 

The Classical Association of Vancouver Island is the University of Victoria’s organization for people interested in the Greek and Roman worlds. Monthly lectures by local and international scholars take place at UVic, hosted by the Department of Greek and Roman Studies.  All members of the Victoria community are welcome to attend the lectures.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Fifty Years of Religious Studies in Canada: A Personal Retrospective 2015-01-29 16:30:00
Description

In Canadian universities in the early 1960s, no courses were offered on Hinduism, Buddhism, or Islam. Only the study of Christianity was available, usually in a theology program in a church college or seminary. Today almost every university in North America has a religious studies department that offers courses on Western and Eastern religions as well as religion in general. Harold Coward will address this change based on his 45 years of experience in the development of religious studies as a new academic field in Canada. He will also address the shift from theology classes in seminaries to non-sectarian religious studies faculties of arts and humanities; the birth and growth of departments across Canada from the 1960s to the present; the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society at the University of Victoria; and the future of religious studies as a truly interdisciplinary enterprise.

Harold Coward is a professor emeritus of history and the founding director of the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society at the University of Victoria. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He served as president of the Canadian Society for the Study of Religion and was the founding editor of the Journal for Hindu-Christian Studies and editor of the WLU Press series The Study of Religion in Canada. He has authored 20 books along with many edited books, chapters and articles.

Film "Dear White People" 2015-01-29 19:00:00
Description

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE

Director: Justin Simien; USA, 2014, 109 min; 14A

“THE BEST FILM ABOUT COLLEGE LIFE IN A LONG TIME!” Chicago Tribune

 “HILARIOUS!” New York Magazine

“WHIP-SMART COMEDIC WRITING!” The Playlist

Here's a comic riff on race relations in the Obama era that hits its targets far more than it misses. Set on a fictional Ivy League campus, Dear White People marks an auspicious debut for writer-director Justin Simien, an African-American who laces his satire with delicious mirth and malice. The plot centers on four students coping with being a black face in a white place. Even mellow Lionel (the excellent Tyler James Williams), a gay student with an Afro, steps up to protest when a frat house throws a party in which whites are urged to attend in blackface (hey, it happened). The fun is nonstop, the cast is top-tier, and Simien is a talent to watch. What are you waiting for? –Rolling Stone

Lecture/Seminar Idealists, Politicians and Patriotism: The Contested Terrain of War and Peace in Canada, 1918-1939 2015-01-29 19:30:00
Description

Professor Ian McKay is the author of studies of Atlantic Canada, social justice movements, and tourism.  His "Liberal Order Framework" has encouraged Canadian historians to rethink Canadian history, and with Jamie Swift he recently published Warrior Nation: Rebranding Canada in an Age of Anxiety, a critical examination of Canada's turn away from peacekeeping towards a more militaristic stance.  His current project, Vimy Traps: How Canadians Remember and Forget the First World War will provide an equally critical examination of the centenary-fueled fascination with the War of 1914-18.

Exhibit IN SESSION - ONE 2015-01-29 10:00
Description

January 17 to March 28, 2015

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes

Megan Dickie | Laura Dutton | d. bradley muir | Tara Nicholson

This is the first part of an on-going series of exhibitions over the next few years featuring the artists who work as Sessional Instructors in the UVic Visual Arts department. This exhibition looks at the recent practice of four artists who work with photography, video, and digital media arts. In Session - One celebrates the significance and power of photo-based art in an age where social media and advertising threaten to inundate and numb us with visual overload. These artists also investigate themes including the relationship between the photographic image and its physicality as an object, light as a material presence, and the time/space/memory relationship of digital media arts.
