Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-11-24 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Film Atom Egoyan's "The Captive" 2014-11-24 19:00:00
Description

THE CAPTIVE

Director: Atom Egoyan; Canada, 2014, 112 min; PG

Despite some plot developments that strain credulity, Atom Egoyan’s wintry, Niagara Falls-set abduction thriller focusing chiefly on the emotional toll a young girl’s disappearance takes on the lives of her parents (played to anguished perfection by Ryan Reynolds and Mireille Enos) and law enforcers is an engrossing, visually striking variation on a genre. Artfully toggling between his signature, time-shifting style and mainstream expectations, Egoyan is less interested in whodunit conventions than capturing, with stylized eeriness, a crime’s psychic impact within a jigsaw-like, technology-propelled narrative that pays dividends for those who can overlook its credibility gaps. —Victoria Times-Colonist

Lecture/Seminar The invasive intertidal cordgrass Spartina spp. Are we on the path to coast wide eradication? 2014-11-24 19:30:00
Description

Victoria Natural History Society - MARINE NIGHT

Spartina spp. have invaded intertidal habitat along the coast of California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Where they thrive they convert interidal mudflats, important nursing habitat for fish and crustaceans, into monophyletic stands of Spartina, changing the waterflow and topography of this habitat. As the Aquatic Invasive Species Specialist of BC, Dr. Matthias Herborg will talk about these plants and their impacts, and how a coordinated eradication effort along the West Coast is dramatically reducing these invaders.

Cornett A120
 

Dr. Brian Thom

Assistant Professor

UVic Anthropology

Innovations in Ethnographic Mapping and Indigenous Cartography

In this colloquium, Brian Thom will discuss how UVic’s Ethnographic Mapping Lab is working towards implementing socially and politically powerful mapping initiatives with indigenous communities.  The talk will elaborate a on the history of maps produced by anthropologists working in Coast Salish territories, which have frequently reduced and essentialized elegantly relational indigenous ontologies. The challenge moving forward is to re-evaluate how anthropologists collaborate with indigenous communities to co-create and mobilize knowledge about land-based cultural practices using leading edge mapping technologies. This talk will highlight new approaches – both proposed and underway –  to effectively visualizing and communicating indigenous peoples’ knowledge and experience of land in the contexts of inter-generational knowledge transfer, public education, indigenous rights assertions, and in land and resource consultations.

EVERYONE WELCOME.
