Lecture/Seminar Dr. Eric DeChaine: Diversification of arctic-alpine plants during the Pleistocene 2012-02-03 14:30:00
Description

Eric DeChaine’s research focuses on how fluctuations in Quaternary climate have impacted the distribution and diversity of the Arctic-alpine flora and fauna, and on how populations track suitable habitat across the shifting landscape and/or adapt to environmental changes. He and his students are using molecular methods to 1) test biogeographic hypotheses, speciation models and ecological niche models in various species of plants and animals; and 2) compare DNA from modern populations with ancient DNA preserved in permafrost middens to estimate responses to climate change.

Lecture/Seminar University of Victoria Philosophy Colloquium 2012-02-03 14:30:00
Description

University of Victoria Philosophy Colloquium

“Justification is Potential Knowledge”
Prof. Jonathan Ichikawa
Assistant Professor
U.B.C.
Abstract

I defend a novel theory of epistemic justification, which I characterize as the identification of justification with "potential knowledge," in a sense to be articulated. Because the theory elucidates justification with reference to knowledge, it is an instance of the Williamsonian "Knowledge First" program; I highlight and clarify some features of that program in generality.

Lecture/Seminar Boxed In: Searching for the Public Good in the Retail Landscape 2012-02-03 14:45:00
Description

Boxed In: Searching for the Public Good in the Retail Landscape

Lecture by Pam Shaw, Vancouver Island University

The retail landscape has changed significantly since the mid 20th century, evolving from a city centre focus through strip malls, shopping centres, shopping malls, mega-malls, big box stores, and to the newest forms of retailing – the lifestyle commercial centres and mixed use developments. One constant through this evolution has been municipal government fixation on more and ever larger developments, with the public good defined as economic good. This discussion looks the meaning of the public good in urban environments through a land use planning lens and examines if the current retail landscape is representative of the public good.
