Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - The Migration of Colonial Knowledge: The Case of Harry Hawthorn and the Doukhobor Problem 2014-10-02 16:30:00
Description

This lecture examines two seemingly unrelated expressions of colonial power and knowledge during the mid-twentieth century. Harry Hawthorn, a prominent anthropologist, was commissioned by the BC government to produce a report on the Doukhobor religious minority, and also commissioned by the federal government to produce a report on First Nations in BC. Although the groups seem on the surface to be quite different, Adam Carmichael argues that Hawthorn’s 1950s reports both reflect a theory of colonial administration and cultural adaptation. The historical evidence suggests that Hawthorn’s reports were not simply a sympathetic post-WWII call for more just “Indian” and Doukhobor policies, but rather an expression of a neo-colonial model of economic integration based on social-scientific knowledge.

Adam Carmichael is a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science with a concentration in Canadian politics and political theory at the University of Victoria. His dissertation research examines the role of the Doukhobors as “problematic settlers” in the process of Canadian settler colonialism.

Film "GORE VIDAL: The United States of Amnesia" 2014-10-02 19:10:00
Description

GORE VIDAL: The United States of Amnesia

Director: Nicholas Wrathall   USA, 2013, 83 minutes

“SUPERB DOCUMENTARY!” –Hollywood Reporter

WINNER! AUDIENCE AWARD -- Palm Springs Film Festival


Eternally opinionated, brilliantly funny and terminally political, Gore Vidal—novelist, essayist, polemicist, politician, pundit, screenwriter—was the true protean man. Born in 1925, Vidal—openly homosexual from 1948, when his novel The City and the Pillar was published—fashioned a unique professional life that lasted more than 50 years. Using fascinating archival footage from Vidal’s legendary on-air career and illuminating and entertaining interviews—including an exclusive as he neared the end of his life, as well as one with the late Christopher Hitchens—Nicholas Wrathall’s intimate and rollicking portrait of an American icon also examines Vidal’s global impact on the worlds of arts, politics and everything in between. –Vancouver International Film Festival

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-02 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.
