Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-03-02 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."

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.

Lecture/Seminar A Social History of Income Tax 2017-03-02 15:30:00
Description

A Social History of Income Tax

British Columbia's Role in the First 50 years of the Federal Income Tax

Dr. Shirley Tillotson

Department of History, Dalhousie University

What better way to explore the relationship between citizens and the state than through tax? Complying with or resisting the taxman is always about money, but it is also always about larger questions, too. Shirley Tillotson, author of Give and Take: the Citizen-Taxpayer and the Rise of Canadian Democracy, explores working class and indigenous tax protests and Treasury tax projects in British Columbia in the early years of the federal income tax and shows their impact on democratic culture.

Lecture/Seminar The Crisis of the Spirit and the Globalization of Addiction 2017-03-02 16:30:00
Description

Presentation by David Seljak, CSRS Visiting Lecturer
Canadian psychologist Bruce Alexander had defined the globalization of addiction as a result of a widespread “poverty of the spirit.” At the same time, Pope Francis analyses the despair and unhappiness of modern society as a spiritual crisis that leads to self-centredness, materialism, and consumerism. This unhappiness has fueled a twin crisis of social injustice and ecological destruction. Dr. Seljak will outline the connections between the analyses of Dr. Alexander, a wholly secular thinker, and Pope Francis, both of whom see the suffering created by conditions in the modern world as a spiritual crisis.

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne lecture "Maidan as a Social and Cultural Phenomenon" 2017-03-02 16:30:00
Description

Lansdowne lecture by Dr. Tamara Hundorova (Institute of Literature, the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine; Ukrainische Freie Universitat)

The Ukrainian Euromaidan of 2013-2014 represents both political and aesthetic phenomena, a space of socio-cultural performance where new kinds of identities were constructed -- national, social, political and gender. The perception and consideration of Euromaidan through the prism of the performance theory does not suggest the reduction of the political and ideological substance of the Ukrainian revolution. Rather, Maidan was permeated by theatricality and performance, and in this respect this place and space was a product of the contemporary post-modern world, a world of new opportunities and social practices that helped improve it morally, politically and intellectually.
