Lecture/Seminar ANTH Grad Colloquium: Bodies Exposed: Environmental In/Justice in Canada's Chemical Valley 2017-03-27 11:30:00
Description

GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

Bodies Exposed: Environmental In/Justice in Canada's Chemical Valley

Dr. Sarah Marie Wiebe
Postdoc & Limited Term Assistant Teaching Professor, Department of Political Science, Uvic

Monday, March 27th, 2017
11:30 am – 12:50 pm
Cornett Building, Room A225

In an area known as Canada’s Chemical Valley, citizens of Aamjiwnaang live in Anishinabek territory at the frontlines of this pollution hotspot. Dr. Wiebe will discuss her recently published book Everyday Exposure: Indigenous Mobilization in Canada’s Chemical Valley, which uncovers systemic injustices near the Ontario-Michigan border, where Canada’s densest concentration of chemical manufacturing surrounds the Aamjiwnaang First Nation. Living in the polluted heart of Chemical Valley, members of this community express concern about their environmental and reproductive health. By examining the problems that Canada’s conflicting levels of jurisdiction pose for the creation of environmental justice policy and analyzing clashes between Indigenous and scientific knowledge, this book argues that social and political change requires an experiential and transformative “sensing policy” approach grounded in lived-experiences and stories.

EVERYONE WELCOME.

Film MR. GAGA: A True Story of Love and Dance 2017-03-27 19:00:00
Description

MR. GAGA: A True Story of Love and Dance

Director: Tomer Heymann; Israel, 2015, 100 min; English & Hebrew with subtitles; PG

WINNER! DOCUMENTARY AUDIENCE AWARD –SXSW Festival

Leading Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin is profiled in possibly the most exciting documentary for fans of edgier modern dance since “Pina.” With a compelling lead character and plenty of striking performance footage from his tenure to date as director of Batsheva Dance Group, Tomer Heymann delivers a feature that has won a handful of fest prizes.

Still fit, limber and driven as ever in his mid-60s, Naharin began professional training as late as age 22. He accepted an offer in 1990 to take over Tel Aviv’s Batsheva Company. He chucked its staple fare for some adventuresome new works of his own. Their electric impact, incorporating jagged, unpredictable movement, multimedia factors, sociopolitical themes and other challenging elements, quickly attracted new patrons — and critical admiration that greatly increased the institution’s international stature.

Between riveting excerpts from individual dances, Naharin is shown rehearsing his company and creating new pieces. –Variety

Mark this “Required Viewing” for dance fans who know the term Gaga goes far beyond the lady in the meat dress. Blending a stunning collection of archival footage, interviews with his uncompromising subject, and awe-inspiring dance excerpts, Heymann crafts a definitive portrait of a brilliant innovator who’s influenced dance across the planet. Georgia Straight

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-27 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.
