Film Victoria premiere! PAYBACK 2012-03-28 19:10:00
Description

PAYBACK
Director: Jennifer Baichwal Canada, 2012, 86 minutes. With Margaret Atwood, Karen Armstrong, Raj Patel, William Rees, Conrad Black
What is debt? In this cinematic philosophical inquiry inspired by Canadian author Margaret Atwood’s book Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth, several disparate notions of payback are explored and interwoven, from the “ecological debt” human beings owe to the planet to the “psychic debt” inherent in notions of revenge. Those expecting a straightforward documentary, with facts and figures, about economic debt crises or the inequities of the IMF should look elsewhere. Payback is a meditative, thoughtful exercise that’s far subtler.
Directed by Jennifer Baichwal, known for her stunning 2006 documentary Manufactured Landscapes, which examined environmental catastrophe through the work of artist Edward Burtynsky, Payback is similarly sophisticated, both visually and intellectually, taking on global issues through an artful lens.
But while the film is never short on beautiful big-screen images, from the haunting cells of a defunct 19th Century Penitentiary to the landscapes of the Albanian mountains, Payback is a limited item, more suited for the most art-house friendly of venues.
Loosely narrated by Atwood herself, seen typing on her computer and delivering her Payback lecture, Baichwal structures the film to keep the viewer on their toes.
Economic concerns underlie a number of the film’s issues (with a sprinkling of harsh capitalist critiques from ecologist William Rees and The Value of Nothing author Raj Patel). But Atwood and Baichwal are primarily interested in those debts that can’t be paid back with money. --Screen International

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Orientalists, Islamists and the Global Public Sphere 2012-03-28 16:30:00
Description

Centre for Studies in Religion and Society Public Lecture Series

Orientalists, Islamists and the Global Public Sphere
Dietrich Jung, CSRS Visiting Research Fellow
University of Southern Denmark

In light of ongoing debates that focus on the differences between Islam and the West, this presentation suggests a change of perspective by aiming to understand similarities. Beginning with the view shared by many Muslims and Westerners of Islam as an all-encompassing and unchanging cultural entity, the presentation will trace this interpretation of Islamic traditions back to the interaction among Islamic reformers, Western Orientalists and scholars of religion in the 19th century.

Dietrich Jung is a professor and head of the Center for Contemporary Middle East Studies at the University of Southern Denmark. He holds an MA in political science and Islamic studies, a PhD in political science from the University of Hamburg, and has extensive field experience in the Muslim world. He has published numerous scholarly articles on the causes of war; peace and conflict studies; political Islam; modern Turkey and on conflicts in the Middle East.
