Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-16 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+

Lecture/Seminar The fourth paradigm in five dimensions: linking people through place and vice versa 2017-03-16 15:30:00
Description

Dr. Grant McKenzie
Assistant Professor, Geographical Sciences, Center for Geospatial Information Science, University of Maryland

Place is one of the foundational concepts on which the field of Geography has been built. Traditionally, GI science research into place has been approached from a spatial perspective. While space is an integral feature of place, it represents only a single dimension (or a combination of three dimensions to be exact), in the complex, multidimensional concept that is place. With the increased availability of large, user-generated datasets, it has become increasingly apparent that the value of 'big data' lies not necessarily in its size, but in its heterogeneity. In my research, I exploit this heterogeneity to build computational, data-driven models of human behavior, taking a multi-dimensional approach to investigating place and the activities people carry out at those places. In this talk, I introduce the concept of Semantic Signatures built from spatial, temporal, and thematic dimensions extracted from user-contributed, and authoritative datasets. I show how these signatures can enhance existing geolocation methods, form the foundation of place-similarity models, and contribute to visualizing the platial pulse of a city.

Conference Indigenous Resurgence in an Age of Reconciliation 2017-03-16 08:00:00
Description

This symposium will bring together many prominent Indigenous scholars in the fields of Political Science, Law and Indigenous Governance to consider the long intellectual tradition of Indigenous resurgence within these fields while looking toward new directions in consideration of the challenges and possibilities produced in the era of reconciliation. Our aim in hosting this event is to cultivate an environment for productive discussion of a central concern facing Indigenous resurgence: our relationships with creation (land, water, animals, ancestors) and how these relationships have been impacted by reconciliation politics.

In conjunction with this symposium, the University of Victoria will publicly launch the Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Nationhood, which draws on faculty members and courses from the Political Science department, the Indigenous Governance program and the Faculty of Law to enable students to examine the intersections of law, politics, and governance with a focus on Indigenous nations and peoples.

We will launch the program publicly with a feast at the First Peoples House, inviting students, staff and faculty across UVIC as well as the local First Nations communities to join us in starting the program in a good way through the unveiling of a logo, singing and feasting.

This event is being held on the traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-16 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.

Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-03-16 10:00
Description

This exhibition celebrates the career of Kwakiutl (Kwakwaka'wakw) carver Ellen Neel (1916-1966), the first woman carver of monumental totem poles. Further, it acknowledges Neel's influential role as a professional artist and her contribution towards the recognition of Northwest Coast Indian art as a contemporary art form.

"Our art continues to live, for not only is it part and parcel of us, but can be a powerful factor in combining the best part of Indian culture with the fabric of a truly Canadian art form."
