Film "The Great Beauty" - ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM! 2014-02-28 15:00:00
Description

LA GRANDE BELLEZZA  /  THE GREAT BEAUTY

Director: Paolo Sorrentino  

Italy, 2013, 142 min; Italian with subtitles; 14A

WINNER! BEST FOREIGN FILM! –Golden Globes

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE – BEST FOREIGN FILM!

FIVE STARS!  A SHIMMERING COUP DE CINEMA TO MAKE YOUR HEART BURST, YOUR MIND SWIM AND YOUR SOUL ROAR!” –The Telegraph

Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo) has seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades, but after his 65th birthday and a shock from the past, Jep looks past the nightclubs and parties to find a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.

Rome is the Eternal City, but it is also one of the great cities of cinema, which means continuous change and flow. The Great Beauty plunges headlong into the current. Paolo Sorrentino’s picture sets out to explain Rome today, as city, mindset and belief system. That’s a fantastically ambitious project, but other Italian filmmakers have been spurred to action in the past by similarly fantastic ambitions, and thank goodness they were: we have Rome, Open City and La Dolce Vita to show for it…

Sorrentino’s plan is to do the same for the Berlusconi era. His film is a carnival of loosely connected vignettes, set at all-night parties, high society jamborees and shadowy religious congresses… —The Telegraph

Lecture/Seminar Dr. Wade Richardson, "Plautus and the Antillean Tody." 2014-02-28 14:30:00
Description

Greek and Roman Studies Department presents a seminar by Dr. Wade Richardson, Adjunct Professor, GRS Department , University of Victoria.
Friday, February 28th at 2:30 pm in Clearihue B415.

"Plautus and the Antillean Tody"

This topic traces the history of one Latin word’s 2200-year journey from the pages of a Greek-inspired early Roman comedy, where it stood as a metaphor for a thin prostitute, to its installation in today’s guides as an improbable beauty of the subtropical avian world. It is a case study of how, before our subject became a bird, it existed in our minds as a word, whose fortunate status as a curiosity secured mention in the entries of a classical epitomist, until such time as it could be found and extracted by the naturalist-scholars of the Enlightenment. Our word shares in only one of the many thousands of modern zoological binomial classifications formed out of equal caprice and chance; but it offers an apt perspective on the fates of a Classical verbal relic through its history of textual transmission, recovery and repurposed use.

Lecture/Seminar Small Grounds: Intimate Domestic Geographies and Colonialism in British Columbia 2014-02-28 14:45:00
Description

Lecture by

Sarah de Leeuw, Associate Professor, Northern Medical Program, University of Northern British Columbia

Neo/colonialism in British Columbia, I argue in this paper, operates through the too frequently overlooked geographies of Indigenous homes and families, places often headed by single mothers and lived in by young children. Specifically, and drawing from more than ten years of qualitative research resulting in (amongst other data) expansive field notes and interviews with more than fifty people living and working the ‘front lines’ of child protection systems in Northern British Columbia, I argue that – contiguous with the violence of residential schooling and other micro-scale efforts to eliminate Indigenous peoples  – colonial power asserts itself most profoundly through intervention into and disruption of intimate, ‘tender’ (Stoler – 2001; 2006), embodied, and ‘visceral’ (Hayes-Conroy 2010) geographies.  Finally, drawing on feminist, anti-racist, and decolonizing theories, my arguments also respond to what I critique as dominant geographic discourses about colonialism in British Columbia being fundamentally tied to land, resources, and territory, discourses I critique both as profoundly masculinist in their erasure of Indigenous women’s and children’s ontologies and as problematically perpetuating Indigeneity as inherently tied to nature.
