Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-17 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 Victoria Colloquium: Avery Kolers (University of Louisville) 2017-03-17 14:30:00
Description

Professor Kolers’ particular research interests include issues surrounding territorial rights and solidarity. These highly “applied” issues touch on a wide range of problems, but also raise hard questions about how to navigate deep diversity in a shared world. His 2009 book Land, Conflict, and Justice: A Political Theory of Territory (Cambridge University Press) won the Canadian Philosophical Association’s biennial book prize. More recently, his 2012 article “Floating Provisos and Sinking Islands” received the Journal of Applied Philosophy prize, awarded for “the best article published in the year’s volume.”

Currently, Professor Kolers is working on a book on solidarity and further articles on territorial rights. He has initiated a research project on the emergence of a discourse of indigenous title in the 16th-century Spanish Dominicans Francisco de Vitoria and Bartolomé de Las Casas as they grappled with the moral and political implications of the Encounter with the “new world.”

Conference Indigenous Resurgence in an Age of Reconciliation 2017-03-17 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 Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-03-17 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."

Ellen Neel

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-17 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 JULIETA 2017-03-17 15:00:00
Description

JULIETA

Director: Pedro Almodóvar; Spain, 2016, 99 min; Spanish with subtitles; 14A

Adapted from three short stories from Alice Munro’s “Runaway” collection, this mother-daughter head trip revisits familiar terrain from the filmmaker who gave us the ecstatically lurid melodramas “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” and “All About My Mother.” But adapting his temperament to match Munro’s signature restraint, Almodóvar tones it down in “Julieta,” which owes as much to the sleek, moody thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock.

The film begins as the title character — a chic middle-aged classics professor living in Madrid — is preparing to move to Portugal with her dashing husband. When Julieta encounters a friend of her daughter Antía, from whom she has been estranged for several years, she makes the instinctive decision to stay put in the city. Almodóvar tells the ensuing story — much of it told in flashback — with well-calibrated suspense and captivating brio.

Partly filmed on the romantic seaside of Galicia, “Julieta” is a nonstop visual feast. It’s no surprise that it is marvelous to look at, but it possesses just as much substance as style. --Washington Post

Almodóvar's admiration for the Alice Munro short stories is not misplaced. Despite rough patches, Julieta morphs into a haunting and hypnotic tribute to both their talents.Rolling Stone

Both a film noir and a candy-colored confection, Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta is one of the most absorbing films he's made in years.Village Voice

Lecture/Seminar Notes on a caribou hearing: spatial marginalization through participatory democracy in western Nunavut 2017-03-17 14:45:00
Description

Chui-Ling Tam
Assistant Professor, Department of Geography, University of Calgary

Adaptation is integral to Inuit culture.  In a rapidly changing Arctic beset by resource degradation and climate change, the 18-year-old Nunavut territory is experimenting with new norms of political engagement.  How the Nunavummiut participate in decision-making – and their access to participation – will determine their environmental and cultural futures.  Public hearings, as a key tool of community engagement, uphold the processes and tools of deliberative participation, but the power relations entwined in space are often unheeded.  The spatiality of participation can serve to marginalize those publics most affected by environmental policy.

 Decisions on participation time-space affect access materially because of who can be there in place to participate, and socially because of the place characteristics of participation.  In June 2016, the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board held caribou hearings in the territory’s western political and economic hub of Cambridge Bay, just before the predicted seasonal sea ice melt.  Inuit hunters and trappers wrestled with their roles as invited participants gathered in a central place.  They stepped outside the agenda to voice grievances regarding the location, timing and participation constraints of the hearings; they expressed anger at being out of place, cleaved from the support of their communities.  In situ observation of the hearings helped capture a thick description of aural and visual cues in environmental communication that were inevitably absent from the text of transcripts made publicly available on request afterward.  At the caribou hearings, spatial marginalization emerged as a dark side to participatory democracy.
