Lecture/Seminar A History of the German Colonial Empire in Objects 2017-03-14 13:30:00
Description

University of Victoria - Department of History

A History of the German Colonial Empire in Objects

Prof. Dr. Benedikt Stuchtey - Chair, Contemporary History Philipps Universität-Marburg

The lecture discusses the value of the material – in particular, the visual – turn for understanding imperial history. How was the project of the German colonial empire popularized? What role did pre- as well as post-colonial fantasies play? Reflecting on images in their symbolic functions the lecture draws a connection between the pictural and the colonial ideas.

Prof. Dr. Stuchtey is a historian of global history from the early nineteenth to the late twentieth century and has published widely on historiography, the history of knowledge, comparative imperialisms, science, and the history of the family and childhood since the nineteenth century. He has held visiting professorships in Basel and Delhi, has served as the deputy director of the German Historical Institute, and currently serves as the Dean of the Department of History and Cultural Studies. He has published numerous books in German and English, including Science and the European Empires, 1800 – 1950, Writing World History, 1800 – 2000, and Across Cultural Borders: Historiography in Global Perspective.

Sponsored by the Department of History, the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies, the Centre for Global Studies, the Faculty of Humanities, and the Canada Research Chair in Global and Comparative History

Lecture/Seminar The digital-portfolio: A dynamic 21st century tool for network learning 2017-03-14 11:30:00
Description

The practice of using a digital-portfolio in professional education has developed as part of a growing movement in multiple sectors of education. Drawing on visual research findings from the third year of a SSHRC funded study on the use of digital-portfolios in three professional programs, this session will show how digital-portfolios are a powerful tool to promote digital literacy skills, present a vehicle for authentic assessment and offer a process for professional networking. In this interactive workshop, participants will have hands-on experience of creating their own digital-portfolios, based on a theme, and experientially learn the technology and skills involved in using a digital-portfolio known as http://folioz.ca. The session will conclude with discussion on how a digital-portfolio can dynamically develop the learning in university programs.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-14 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Film TONI ERDMANN 2017-03-14 19:00:00
Description

TONI ERDMANN

Director: Maren Ade; Germany, 2016, 163 min; German with subtitles; 14A

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

Comedies are supposed to be short, but this German farce succeeds by virtue of its endlessness—like its hero, an aging irrepressible joker, the movie keeps bugging you until you can't help but laugh. Winfried (Peter Simonischek) loves gags and goofy disguises, and his penchant for fun has alienated him from his grown daughter (Sandra Hüller), now a hard-charging business consultant. Winfried travels to Bucharest to spend a few weeks with the daughter and turns her neatly ordered world upside down, donning fake teeth and a black hippie wig and passing himself off to her associates as life coach Toni Erdmann. –Chicago Reader

A crazy, inventive, and emotive father/daughter escapade. –Toronto Star

Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-14 20:00:00
Description

The Inspector

March 9 –18, 2017

By Nikolay Gogol
Adapted & Directed by Linda Hardy

Word arrives in a little government town that an inspector is coming – incognito! Panic seizes the town’s officials: Will their little improprieties be exposed? Meanwhile, a lowly civil servant visiting from out of province is mistaken for the inspector. The officials outdo themselves to please him with gifts and he, in turn, grows bolder. This satirical farce spins out of control, as hypocrisy, corruption, and human greed escalate. Gogol’s comedy of errors, written in19th-century Russia, is no less relevant in our modern political landscape.

Appropriate for ages 13+
