Lecture/Seminar Brown Bag Speaker Series, Feat. Jentery Sayers 2013-09-10 12:00:00
Description

he Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory at the University of Victoria
(http://etcl.uvic.ca/) invites you to attend the seventh meeting of the
2013-14 Brown Bag Speaker Series. This is a series of informal lunchtime
seminars for faculty and graduate students in the Faculty of Humanities
and across the university to discuss issues in digital literacy, digital
humanities, and the changing face of research, scholarship, and teaching
in our increasingly digital world. For an hour once per month, we meet
to hear from an invited speaker, share ideas, and build knowledge.

On Tuesday, 10th September, from 12 until 1 p.m., Jentery Sayers (Assistant Professor of English and Director of the Maker Lab at the University of Victoria) will be presenting a talk entitled,

“Stitching Together Speculations along the Z-Axis of Algorithmic Culture.”

Details are below. Please share this announcement with anyone who might be interested in attending.

Tuesday, September 10th—12 – 1 p.m.
Room C112, David Strong Building, University of Victoria

Abstract: Algorithms routinely make decisions for people with access to them,
including decisions about how texts, bodies, and environments should be
read. With these routine and often ignored decisions in mind, this talk
unpacks how computer vision can be approached critically by scholars of
materiality and culture, with an emphasis on “z-axis” methods, which
privilege speculation, conjecture, and subjectivity through 3D modelling
and prototyping techniques.

Bio: Jentery Sayers is Assistant Professor of English and Director of the
Maker Lab in the Humanities at the University of Victoria. More about
the lab: http://maker.uvic.ca/.

Bring your lunch and join us to discuss digital technologies and research in our community!

Film "Hannah Arendt" 2013-09-10 19:00:00
Description

 

HANNAH ARENDT

Director: Margarethe von Trotta  

Germany, 2012, 113 min; English & German with subtitles

BEST FEATURE FILM –Victoria Film Festival

One of the hardest tasks in filmmaking is to make ideas sexy, or at least interesting, onscreen. Hannah Arendt is a remarkably successful attempt from heavyweight German director Margarethe Von Trotta, who has filmed the biopics of Rosa Luxemburg and Hildegard von Bingen with serious passion. Hannah Arendt, the German-born philosopher who coined the phrase “the banality of evil”, seems like an impossible subject for film, yet even viewers who have never read a word of her books will be stirred by her intellectual and emotional courage in Barbara Sukowa’s award-worthy performance. There’s nothing fancy or modern to distract from the portrait of one of the most important thinkers of the century.

She and her beloved husband Heinrich (Axel Milberg) are German Jews who have lived in New York since they escaped from a French detention camp during the war. Then an incredible opportunity arises for her to cover the trial of Nazi Adolf Eichmann. She flies to Jerusalem to follow the trial and meet old friends.

Her impressions, which The New Yorker publishes in five articles, is to be followed by a book. Arendt is attacked for writing that the trial showed some Jewish leaders were involved as collaborators with the Germans. It blows up into a media circus. Arendt refuses to back down. Her closing remarks to her students qualifies as one of the great classroom scenes in cinema and a thrilling lesson in courage. –The Hollywood Reporter
