Music MUS 391 Class Lecture-Recital: Issues in Suppressed Music 2013-03-28 12:00:00
Description

Students from the University of Victoria present a unique musical and educational event. There is an enormous body of musical repertoire written by World War II-era composers that has been lost or ignored for decades and is only now being rediscovered. Since January, students of the MUS 391 Suppressed Music class have explored this valuable music and its historical implications, under the instruction of School of Music professor Dr. Suzanne Snizek. With students coming from diverse faculties including music, English, and sociology, the variety of perspectives has led to a deeper understanding not only of factual material, but of the sensitive nature of musical scholarship and of the responsibilities of performers in presenting artwork from such a fraught period in world history. The students will perform selections from works by Pavel Haas, Erwin Schulhoff, Leo Smit, Petr Eben, Mieczysław Weinberg, and Freddy Grant. They are pleased to have the opportunity to share such incredible musical works with the community, and hope that the event will also begin public dialogue about artistic representations of remembrance and tolerance.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - A Good Reputation Is More Valuable than Money: Women, Knowledge and Slander in 16th-Century France 2013-03-28 16:30:00
Description

CSRS Public Lecture Series
A Good Reputation Is More Valuable than Money: Women, Knowledge and Slander in 16th-Century France

Speaker: Justine Semmens
CSRS Religious Studies TA Student Fellow
Department of History, UVic

When people think about women and the justice system in early modern France, they might imagine scenarios involving fanatical judges, crowded stone prison cells, and brutal torture.  While some of these images do reflect the more horrifying aspects of early modern law and order, they do not represent the majority of women’s experiences before the law.  In fact, an examination of historical documents shows how women, even those from relatively modest backgrounds, often possessed an impressive arsenal of strategies and knowledge that they used to their own benefit as both defendants and plaintiffs. While prevailing attitudes about women often meant the odds were stacked against them, some women were surprisingly resourceful.

Justine Semmens is a PhD candidate in history at the University of Victoria. Her research considers the role that religion and gender played in women’s experience of crime and justice in 16th and 17th -century France. Justine is looking forward to her third year as a graduate fellow at the CSRS and is grateful for the opportunity to share some of her research with the University of Victoria community.

Film "How to Survive A PLAGUE" 2013-03-28 19:00:00
Description

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE! BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE!

HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE

Director: David France   USA, 2012, 120 minutes

“ONE OF THE BEST DOCUMENTARIES, AND BEST FILMS, OF THE YEAR!” –The Playlist

The heroes of "Plague" stare death in the face. They send crowds into battle. Some don't survive; others, faced with crushing odds, persevere and emerge transformed. When it's over, this documentary lingers as a testament to extraordinary human bravery. It stands as one of the most heartbreaking and suspenseful sagas of the year. “Plague" tracks the history of AIDS activism in response to ineffective treatment and governmental foot-dragging - with piles of archival footage from the movement's beginnings through its growth and metamorphosis as the epidemic ballooned…Let the heroes conclude their sagas with mystery, and courage, and tears. –San Francisco Chronicle
