Lecture/Seminar The end of China's one-party state: a predictable event? 2013-09-27 19:00:00
Description

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has, so far, successfully resisted the worldwide trend of democratization.  Since its near-death experience in the Tiananmen crisis in 1989, the CCP has adopted a comprehensive strategy of survival that uses a mix of performance-based legitimacy, repression, and co-optation. The effectiveness of this strategy has led many to believe that the CCP will be able to maintain its political monopoly for the foreseeable future.  However, historical experience around the world, insights from decades of social science research, and emerging trends inside China suggest that a transition to some form of democracy in China in the coming 10-15 years is a high-probability event.  This lecture, part of CAPI's annual Albert Hung Chao Hong series, will analyze the drivers of this transition, explore possible pathways to democracy, and analyze some of the critical consequences of this revolutionary change.

Dr. Minxin Pei currently serves as the Director of the Keck Center for International and Strategic Studies at Claremont McKenna College. In 2008, he was listed as one of the top 100 public intellectuals by Prospect magazine. This lecture is the keynote for the workshop, Perspectives on China's Transition. The lecture is free and open to the public. The workshop is also free but please register by emailing capi@uvic.ca.

Other Jason Lim Performance 2013-09-27 20:25:00
Description

Meaning comes and goes and tells about the ridiculous task of trying to find it and pin it down. Jason Lim’s art practice, which incorporates ceramics, performance, installation, and video art, wrestles with life’s combative questions. Jason Lim has performed and exhibited in more than twenty countries. He teaches in the Faculty of Visual Arts at the School of the Arts in Singapore.

Lim’s recent series of performances, Duet, explores the repeated actions from different angles and examines binaries such as stillness and action, fullness and emptiness, light and dark.

Film "BLACKFISH" 2013-09-27 15:00:00
Description

 

BLACKFISH

Director: Gabriela Cowperthwaite    USA, 2013, 84 minutes; PG

"IF YOU SEE ONE DOCUMENTARY THIS YEAR, MAKE IT ‘BLACKFISH’!” –The Hollywood News

“ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF 2013 SO FAR!” –Awards Daily

“FIVE STARS!  A MUST-SEE!” –Daily Mirror  

“Blackfish” is the first film since “Grizzly Man” to show how nature can get revenge on man when pushed to its limits.

A mesmerizing psychological thriller with a bruised and battered killer whale at its center, “Blackfish” launches a direct attack on the practice of keeping marine mammals in captivity. Righteous, captivating and entirely successful as single-issue-focused documentaries go, Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s film draws on startling video footage and testimonies from former orca trainers, building an authoritative argument on behalf of this majestic species. A powerful educational tool.

The protagonist of “Blackfish” is Tilikum, a 12,000-pound bull orca that has caused the deaths of three people in his 20-odd years as a theme-park attraction. The most recent victim was Dawn Brancheau, an experienced Sea World trainer whose February 2010 death is presented as a human tragedy that could have been prevented.

Cowperthwaite interviews numerous ex-trainers. Another key source is whale researcher-activist Howard Garrett. The film then builds a compelling psychological profile of Tilikum, who, after being captured in 1983, was held at a now-defunct Canadian theme park called Sealand of the Pacific. There, he was subjected to uniquely abusive training techniques. Tilikum’s first human victim was a young Sealand trainer, Keltie Byrne, who slipped into the tank, was attacked by the three whales, and eventually drowned.

Tilikum was transferred to Sea World Orlando in 1992, and the film suggests not only that his traumas and anxieties followed him there, but also that the park failed to conduct a proper inquiry into the violent history of its prize acquisition. Unsurprisingly, no Sea World representatives were willing to be interviewed. –Variety
