Dr. Mareike Kleine illustrates informal norms and tests how they work, to provide the first systematic analysis, based on new material from national and European archives and other primary data, of the parallel development of the formal rules and informal norms that have governed the EU from the 1958 Treaty of Rome until today.

Lecture/Seminar Dr. Alec Marantz, Professor of Linguistics and Psychology (NYU) - Taking interpretive semantics seriously: argument-introducing heads in the syntax and semantics 9work with Jim Wood) 2014-03-27 11:30:00
Description

 

 
This talk explores the possibility that Voice, Applicative, and P are not categorically distinct syntactic heads, but contextual variants of a single argument-introducing head.  Crucial to the analysis is the explanation of such phenomena as the Japanese adversative causative construction, which is syntactically transitive, yet involves an inchoative interpretation of the verb, and an obligatory possessive relationship between the subject and direct object.  These constructions resemble certain expressions in English, including those with simple transitive possessive “have.”  The linguistic system developed in this talk helps to answer certain mysteries, such as why Voice seems obligatory between Tense and a verb, but is not obligatory in general above a verb, and why canonical Applicative heads do not attach above Voice.

Description

CSRS Public Lecture Series

A Family That Kills Together...: Household Violence in Catholic Reformation France
Justine Semmens
CSRS Religious Studies TA Student Fellow; Department of History, UVic

The family household comprised the primary social and economic unit in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century France. Just as today, most violence perpetrated in early modern French society occurred within families. So, whether it was mothers killing their children, sons killing their fathers, or servants killing their masters, violence in the household suggested a world turned upside down in which the moral codes that fastened society together were coming undone. As the religious reformations of the sixteenth century started to change the ways French society enforced codes about sexuality and reproduction, the shape that family violence took and the ways that the state prosecuted it also changed, in interesting ways.

Justine Semmens is currently completing a doctorate in early modern cultural and religious history at the University of Victoria. Her dissertation, The Shifting Dynamics of Sexual Deviance in Catholic Reformation France, 1550-1650, investigates what changing ideas about morality, gender, and crime can tell us about early modern family-state complex.

Film "12 Years A Slave" 2014-03-27 18:45:00
Description

12 YEARS A SLAVE

Director: Steve McQueen     USA/UK, 2013, 134 min; 14A

Cast: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong’o, Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch

9 OSCAR NOMINATIONS including BEST PICTURE, DIRECTOR, ACTOR, SUPPORTING ACTOR, SUPPORTING ACTRESS

British director Steve McQueen’s antebellum Southern drama sets a new standard in realistically depicting American slavery. Far from the push-button catharsis offered by most Hollywood redemption tales, the work is sober and deliberate, a mix of visceral intensity and artful design. It’s a portrait of Solomon Northrup, a free black man in the 1840s who was kidnapped and sold into slavery.–The Globe and Mail

“A blistering, brilliant, straight-up classic.”Rolling Stone
