Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE: Unity (1918) @8pm 2014-03-18 20:00:00
Description

UNITY (1918) @8PM

 

Written & Directed by Kevin Kerr
Assoc. Professor, Writing Dept.

This 2002 Governor General’s Award-winning play is a touching, intensely human and darkly comic portrayal of a forgotten chapter in Canadian history. During the final few weeks of World War I, the global Spanish Flu pandemic is spreading across the country and has the entire town of Unity, Saskatchewan, under siege from an invisible enemy, more horrifying and deadly than the war. Seen through the lives of the charming, eccentric townsfolk – including several young women driven by their dreams of finding true passion – this gothic romance explores human needs of love, sex and faith, during their desperate embrace of life at the edge of death.

Other Archaeological Society BC Meeting 2014-03-18 19:30:00
Description

 

ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA: VICTORIA

In association with the Anthropology Department of UVic

A short history of Mayan astronomy: The Mayan calendar and the collapse of the Classic Maya culture
by Dr. Andreas Fuls, Berlin Institute of Technology, Germany

The Classic Maya developed a sophisticated calendar and observed the Sun, Moon, planets and stars. Precise astronomical data allow correlation of the Mayan calendar to the Christian calendar.  A new chronology is proposed and verified by different dating methods and data, which also results in a discussion of the so-called “Mayan collapse”.

Bio.

Andreas Fuls is currently working at the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation Science of the Berlin Institute of Technology, where he has worked for the last 25 years. His special fields are geodatabases and GIS, measurement systems and methods. He finished his dissertation at Hamburg University in 2006 in the history of science, more specifically in Maya archaeoastronomy and the solution of the Maya calendar correlation question. Andreas Fuls became interested in Maya glyphs in 1998 and in the Indus script in 2007, developing an epigraphic database of Indus inscriptions and mathematical methods to analyze undeciphered writing systems.

Film Lost Rivers: Canada Water Week Film Screening and Panel Discussion 2014-03-18 18:30:00
Description

Join us this Canada Water Week for a film screening and panel discussion exploring the long history and interactions between natural waterways and our urban environments. The film Lost Rivers (CatBird Films) will take us across the globe, retracing the history of lost urban rivers by plunging into archival maps and going underground with clandestine urban explorers. We’ll search for the disappeared Petite Rivière St-Pierre in Montreal, the River Tyburn in London, England, the Saw Mill River in New York, and the Bova-Celato River in Bresica, Italy. Could we see these rivers again? To find the answer, we’ll meet visionary urban thinkers, activists and artists from around the world.

Following the film, we will turn our thinking to local water priorities in the Victoria region through a moderated panel discussion with local experts:
-Scott Murdoch, Registered Landscape Architect, Murdoch de Greeff Inc.
-Ed Robertson, Assistant Director of Public Works, City of Victoria
-Nikki Curnow, Coordinator, Bowker Creek Initiative
-Kirk Stinchcombe, Sustainability Specialist, Econics & Stratetic Advisor, POLIS Water Sustainability Project (moderator)

This event is being hosted by the POLIS Project on Ecological Governance at the University of Victoria’s Centre for Global Studies, the Capital Regional District, and the University of Victoria Department of Geography, with support from the RBC Blue Water Project.
