BYZANTIUM

Director: Neil Jordan   UK/USA/Ireland, 2012, 119 min; 14A

“The right vampire movie for today, poetic and elegant in an artfully tattered way.”Village Voice

Enthusiastically recommended: Almost two decades after his uneven Interview With the Vampire, the Irish-born fabulist Neil Jordan returns to the realm of bloodsuckers. The movie is gorgeous, mesmerizing, poetic; the lyricism actually heightened by harsh jets of gore. Saoirse Ronan is Eleanor, a young-looking but very old vampire who drinks the blood of the elderly: They receive her gratefully, as an angel of deliverance. She has a burning drive to write and share her life story—unlike her hottie Cockney guardian, Clara (Gemma Arterton), who has an equally fierce drive to keep their rapacious private lives private. Cinematographer Sean Bobbitt creates a Gothic night-world out of neon. Romanticism finally trumps horror, which might leave nihilist genre fiends unsatisfied. For others, these female vampires will bestow the kiss of life. –New York Magazine

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Rethinking Scholarly Categories in Cross-Cultural Comparison 2013-10-31 16:30:00
Description

CSRS Public Lecture Series

Rethinking Scholarly Categories in Cross-Cultural Comparison
Marcel Parent, CSRS Religious Studies Teaching Fellow, Concordia University

In this lecture, Marcel Parent offers a glimpse into his forthcoming book: Issues in Comparative Philosophy, where he examines cultural issues – including the problematic representation of Asia in Western popular culture and scholarship – in a manner informed by post-colonial, feminist and queer theory. Parent argues that philosophical concepts and categories, such as “religion”, “philosophy”, and even “culture”, are not objective or neutral, but rather dynamic. The meaning of such concepts and categories shifts depending on the cultural milieu in which they are used, and reflect histories of usage that can reveal strange and surprising dimensions of broader political and social struggles over power and knowledge.

Marcel Parent recently defended his PhD (Concordia), and is working on his book Issues in Comparative Philosophy. His research areas include the methodology of comparison, social justice ethics, South Asian Studies, and 20th century European Philosophy.

Exhibit Paradox 2013-10-31 10:00:00
Description

The notion of paradox provides an apt means of curating seven divergent artists who make up the University of Victoria's Visual Arts department. Despite their widely varying practices, they share fundamental interests in the contradictory nature of our very physical and psychic experiences in, and of, the world around us.

Paradox presents the recent work of the artists teaching in department of Visual Arts of the University of Victoria. The seven faculty members (Daniel Laskarin, Sandra Meigs, Robert Youds, Vikky Alexander, Lynda Gammon, Jennifer Stillwell, and Paul Walde) are mid-career and senior artists with national and international careers. Each artist will be represented by work characteristic of current practice relating to the theme of the paradox implicit in our experience of art.
