Film "Hyde Park on Hudson" 2013-03-22 15:00:00
Description

 

HYDE PARK ON HUDSON

Director: Roger Michell   UK, 2012, 95 min; PG

‘CHARMING AND WISTFUL.” –Philadelphia Inquirer

Bill Murray plays Franklin Roosevelt whose vacation getaway is his mother's family mansion in upstate New York. Here in June 1939, he receives guests whose visit could change the course of world history: England's King George V (Samuel West) and Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman). Witnessing from backstage is his sixth cousin, Daisy (Laura Linney), with whom FDR has a sweet and secret affair. Murray finds the exact tone, gentle and confiding, for this view of Roosevelt. –Roger Ebert

Lecture/Seminar The Down-Deep Delight of Democracy 2013-03-22 14:45:00

Mark Purcell

The talk focuses on my ongoing effort to contribute to a new political praxis in the current era by using a range of political theorists (Gramsci, Lefebvre, Ranciere, Deleuze and Guattari, Laclau and Mouffe, Hardt and Negri) to radically reimagine the concept of democracy.

Lecture/Seminar Flowing Forward: Celebrating the Diversity of Water Research at UVic 2013-03-22 11:30:00
Description

Are you passionate about something related to water? Do you lie awake at night wondering what B.C.’s freshwater future will look like? Do you want to connect with water researchers from across the UVic campus? If so, this event is for you!

The Canadian Water Network Students and Young Professionals, in partnership with UVic’s Water, Innovation, and Global Governance (WIGG) Lab and the POLIS Project on Ecological Governance, invites you to attend a celebration of water research at UVic for World Water Day 2013!

This lunch-and-learn event will focus on fresh water and the future of British Columbia (and Canada). Bringing together students, faculty, and associate researchers from across the campus, presentations will explore complex water issues and celebrate the diversity of UVic water research—from freshwater priorities, to fisheries, to atmospheric water.

Students and researchers will share their research questions and preliminary findings through five-minute speed talks. And three water experts from the UVic community will give keynote presentations on some of the most pressing water issues being faced in Canada today.

Please RSVP to Jason Walters jswalters@me.com. A free light lunch will be provided.

Keynotes

Jesse Baltutis (Researcher, POLIS)

Dr. John Volpe (Professor, Environmental Studies)

Arelia Werner (Hydrologist, Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium)

Lecture/Seminar Subject Cognitive Impairment in Clinic, Laboratory, and Daily Life 2013-03-22 15:00:00
Description

Speaker: Bryce Mulligan

 

Abstract:

As the average age of the Canadian population continues to increase, the prevalence of dementia of the Alzheimer's type (DAT) is expected to follow suit. Unfortunately there is still no cure for DAT, and thus research efforts are increasingly directed at early identification of at-risk individuals, with the hope that new interventions can be developed to slow the progression of disease. Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is now well-established as an DAT precursor syndrome, and there is a consensus regarding clinical diagnostic criteria for MCI. However recent evidence indicates that there is an accelerated rate of cognitive decline and cerebral atrophy in the years leading up to diagnosis of MCI, suggesting that it may be possible to detect pathological change even before onset of overt cognitive impairment. Subjective Cognitive Impairment (SCI) is characterized by significant, informant-corroborated reports of cognitive decline in the absence of clinically manifest cognitive impairment on standard neuropsychometric testing. Despite evidence that SCI is associated with pathological cerebral change and confers an increased risk for MCI and DAT, the lack of objective cognitive impairment has led some clinicians and researchers to label these individuals "worried well". In this context, I will discuss some recent results from our lab showing event-related potential (ERP) differences between individuals with SCI and healthy controls, and speculate on the significance of SCI for daily lived experience. I will also share encouraging findings suggestive of mindfulness training-related remediation, and some plans for future research.

Lecture/Seminar University of Victoria Philosophy Colloquium 2013-03-22 15:30:00
Description

University of Victoria Philosophy Colloquium

Child Well-Being and the Ethical Limits of Circumcision

Dr. Alexander Bagattini

Institute für Philosophie

Universität Düsseldorf

Abstract

Male circumcision has, contrary to female circumcision, for long been seen as a rather harmless medical procedure. However, nowadays circumcision comes more and more in the focus of law and morals. In a recent, highly contested verdict the judges of the Cologne county court in Germany argued that the circumcision of a four year old boy was medically not necessary. Hence, according to the Cologne judges, the boy’s right to physical integrity was violated. As a consequence, Jewish and Muslim communities in Germany feel threatened in their cultural identities, as the parental autonomy – the right of the parents to determine what is in the best interest of their offspring – of Jewish and Muslim parents could be confined. What we find in this situation is a deep-seated moral conflict between parental autonomy and children´s right to physical integrity that is the well-being of children. This paper offers an analysis of this moral conflict: The main question is whether, in the case of (male) circumcision the state should interfere with parental autonomy. This question will be addressed by firstly clarifying the notion of parental autonomy and by secondly explaining which rights children have. After getting at clues with the notion of children´s rights, we can go on asking if circumcision endangers those rights.
