Lecture/Seminar Visiting Artist Series presents Mowry Baden 2013-02-13 20:00:00
Description

Articulating an internal awareness of movement and posture has always been the most important element in Baden’s work. He has built harnesses, furniture, rooms, pathways and catwalks, all with the goal of impinging upon the viewer's movements and awakening a physical self-awareness that was previously unconscious. Baden tries to provoke a perceptual crisis that assaults the viewer’s confidence in the information that comes through the senses. His practice has always involved materials, just like any artist who makes objects. Ideally, however, he is less interested in the object than in the experience. He wants the viewer to enter the object (or the space) and have an experience that is visceral, internal, and sensorially cross-circuited.

Film "The World Before Her" 2013-02-13 19:10:00
Description

 

THE WORLD BEFORE HER

Director: Nisha Pahuja   Canada, 2012, 90 min; English & Hindi with subtitles

WINNER! BEST DOCUMENTARY! –Tribeca Film Festival

This vivid, award-winning documentary follows two passionate and ambitious young women in starkly contrasted parts of India. In Mumbai, Ruhi embarks on a beauty bootcamp in preparation for the Miss India beauty pageant, while in rural India, Prachi works and teaches at the right-wing Hindu fundamentalist camp for young women. The beauty business may be one of the only ways for an Indian woman to achieve a certain status, but both women are ultimately circumscribed by the livelihoods that claim to liberate them. Despite their best efforts, they remain firmly stuck in the patriarchal culture they inhabit. The stories told here may be deeply personal, but director Pahuja’s core question looms larger—what does the future hold? –Vancouver International Film Festival

Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE - PREVIEW: Reasons to be Pretty @8pm 2013-02-13 20:00:00
Description

Reasons to be Pretty
by Neil LaBute

Directed by Christine Willes

Why do we care about being pretty when "Love is blind, sh#*!head. It is."Reasons to be Pretty takes us up close and personal with four friends and two relationships in this Tony Award-nominated, blue-collar, black comedy. A master of contemporary, realistic, in-your-face and four-letter-friendly dialogue, Neil LaBute mines the humour and painful truths that lay between self-image and self-esteem in our beauty-obsessed society. 

"…Some of the freshest and most illuminating American dialogue to be heard anywhere these days.”  New York Times

Lecture/Seminar Integrating L2 (Foreign Language) Typing in the Russian Language Classroom [Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Series] 2013-02-13 11:30:00
Description

FacilitatorsDorothy Lockyer and Julia Rochtchina, Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies
Technologies such as laptops, iPads and iPhones allow the increasingly ‘technologically-oriented’ beginner and intermediate L2 language student to communicate in and engage with the target language through diverse typing activities, including email correspondence with the instructor or TA and participating in online chat forums. Thus, typing skills on the foreign language keyboard are becoming increasingly more important to teach students in earlier stages of language acquisition. This presentation looks at the preliminary results of integrating L2 typing in SLAV 101 and 201 classes.
