Lecture/Seminar Evidence-based decision making in health research: analysis and visualization of individual level data 2017-03-23 15:30:00
Description

Dr. Ofer Amram
Post-Doctoral Fellow, BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS

Providing examples from studies conducted in the areas of pediatric injury and HIV research, the presentation will focus on: 1) the relationship between socio-economic status and pediatric traumatic brain injury;  and 2) the impact of access to health care services on HIV-related health outcomes.  In addition, the talk will include a discussion of methods of analysis and visualization, and will demonstrate a web-based map used to visualize data on HIV status in BC. The talk will conclude with an outline of Dr. Amram’s vision for future work in the field of health and GIS.

Lecture/Seminar history of Jewish Scholarship on Islam: The Story of a Fascination 2017-03-23 16:30:00
Description

As a leading scholar of Judaism, and religion and culture in European history, Dr. Heschel will present the history of Jewish scholarship on Islam in the modern world. In the nineteenth century, Jewish scholars in Europe began to demonstrate the parallels between Judaism and Islam. Theirs was a distinct Orientalism that focused on Islam’s rationalism, monotheism, and religious law. Dr. Heschel will reflect on the role of Jewish scholarship within the larger context of the nineteenth century’s approach to “religion,” European imperialism, and its adoption and transformation of insights drawn from New Testament scholarship.

Film Belo Monte: After the Flood - A Canada Water Week Film Screening and Panel Discussion 2017-03-23 19:00:00
Description

This Canada Water Week, you are invited to attend a screening of the film “Belo Monte: After the Flood” followed by a panel discussion with Michele-Lee Moore, Merrell-Ann Phare, and the Honourable Michael Miltenberger.

WHAT: “Belo Monte: After the Flood”—A Canada Water Week Film Screening and Panel Discussion

DATE: Thursday, March 23rd

TIME: 7 p.m. to 9 p.m

MORE INFO:

Join us this Canada Water Week for a film screening and panel discussion exploring the effects of large-scale energy projects on communities in Brazil and Canada.

Directed by award-winning environmental documentarian Todd Southgate and produced in collaboration with Amazon Watch, International Rivers, and Cultures of Resistance, “Belo Monte: After the Flood” brings us to the shores of the Xingu River in the heart of the Amazon. There, we hear the stories of indigenous community members and their decades-long fight against the multi-billion-dollar Belo Monte hydroelectric project. Amidst government corruption, environmental degradation, and neglected mitigation measures, this film shows how community members have taken matters into their own hands to fight for the protection of their waterways.

Following the film, we’ll be joined by leading aboriginal law expert Merrell-Ann Phare (Executive Director, Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources & Member, FLOW), Michael Miltenberger (former MLA and Northwest Territories Minister of the Environment & Member, FLOW), and Michele-Lee Moore (Associate Professor, Department of Geography, University of Victoria & Founder, Water, Innovation, and Global Governance Lab). They will lead a discussion on how the struggles of Brazil’s indigenous peoples parallel those of First Nations here in Canada, and the opportunities present in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

This event is being co-hosted by the POLIS Water Sustainability Project and the Water, Innovation, and Global Governance (WIGG) Lab, based at the University of Victoria’s Centre for Global Studies.  

RSVPs are not required, but are appreciated. Contact Dana Holtby at ra@polisproject.org or 250-721-7211.

Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-03-23 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."

Lecture/Seminar #RadicalSolidarity - Why feminism matters now more than ever 2017-03-23 19:00:00
Description

How does one become a feminist in Germany these days? And why is there even a need to be feminist in the country that has Angela Merkel at the helm - who is said to be the most powerful woman in the world? Is online activism the solution to all our feminist demands? And how do we protect the rights of marginalized people, yet also continue to push for a better world for everyone when right-wing politics and neo-fascist ideas are on the rise in so many countries all over the world?

In her talk author and feminist activist Anne Wizorek explains her concept of #RadicalSolidarity and gives a short overview of the state of feminist activism. She addresses the current discourse as well as the backlash in Germany, and how it is embedded in international political developments.

Film THE SALESMAN 2017-03-23 19:00:00
Description

THE SALESMAN

Director: Asghar Farhadi; Iran, 2016, 125 min; Persian with subtitles;

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

After scoring an Oscar for A Separation, Asghar Farhadi returns to Tehran for this quietly gripping drama about a couple, amateur actors appearing in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, whose relationship starts to splinter in the aftermath of an assault. Married couple Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) move into a new flat, not knowing that its previous occupant was a woman despised by her neighbours. Rana is attacked by a strange man. As Rana retreats into herself, Emad, frustrated by his inability to comfort her, decides to play detective and find the culprit himself. But if and when he does, what will he do then? And at what cost? –Vancouver International Film Festival

“A classic whodunit with Asghar Farhadi's characteristically impeccable plotting and buildup of suspense.”Film Journal International

“Farhadi steers his narrative to a shattering conclusion about the quality of mercy and vengeance.”Maclean’s
