Please join us for this free, interactive chat with business professors who have worked on projects in Swaziland and Nepal, and hear their inspiring on-the-ground stories and discover how these projects (and others) fit with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Lecture/Seminar Imagination, Memory, and Engagement: Expressing Indigenous and non-Indigenous geographies 2017-03-09 18:30:00
Description

LANSDOWNE LECTURE

Dr. Margaret Pearce
Faculty Associate, Canadian-American Center, University of Maine

In this talk, Dr. Margaret Pearce, a U.S. based academic, cartographer and member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, will introduce cartography as a form of language, explore some of the structural details of that language, and demonstrate the way that altering those structural details opens up new possibilities for engagement with the reader and other collaborators.  Dr. Pearce will share her struggle to achieve those possibilities in her work, for the expression of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous geographies. Each map brings new lessons to the surface regarding imagination, memory, and community. Her hope is that this talk will in turn expand the audience’s imagination for what the map can do and be.

BIO - Margaret Pearce is a cartographer based in Rockland, Maine. In addition to producing her own imprints, her 2015-2017 clients and collaborators include the Canadian-American Center of the University of Maine, the National Museum of the American Indian-NY, and Penobscot Cultural & Historic Preservation Department of Penobscot Nation. She has 18 years of experience as a geography faculty member, most recently as Associate Professor of Geography at the University of Kansas. She is a member of Citizen Potawatomi Nation and holds a PhD in Geography from Clark University.

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."

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.

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

(Gene Kelly & Stanley Donen, USA, 1952, 103 min; rated G)

This exuberant satire of Hollywood in the late 20s, at the time of the transition from silents to talkies, is probably the most enjoyable of all American movie musicals. The teamwork of the stars, Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds, is joyful and the material is first-rate. –Pauline Kael

Lecture/Seminar Ideafest 2017: West Coast Eco-Spirituality: Religion, Reverence, and Reason in Cascadia 2017-03-09 16:30:00
Description

Presented by: Paul Bramadat (Centre for Religion and Society, and Department of History), Siobhan Chandler (Sociologist of Religion, independent scholar), Lynne Marks (Department of History), Mike Simpson (School of Environmental Studies) and Rev. Canon Bruce Bryant- Scott (Parish of St. Matthias Anglican).

Nearly 50 per cent of British Columbians report they have no religion—that’s more than twice the share of “nones” than any other region in Canada and higher than anywhere else in North America. The religious and spiritual style of the “Cascadia bio-region” is influenced by its distinctive history, politics and environment and is expressed through such activities as hiking, yoga, mindfulness practices, religious creativity and a reverence for nature. Join local scholars, practitioners and critics of West Coast eco-spirituality to debate, debunk and discover the roots and implications of this unique phenomenon.

Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-09 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 CAVI lecture: Brothels and Prostitution at Pompeii 2017-03-09 19:30:00
Description

According to Roman literature, brothels were dirty, smelly places hidden away on narrow alleyways, full of insatiable women and prowling men. This talk examines the reality of Roman prostitution, show casing a surprising world where clients wrote verses of Virgil's Aeneid on the walls of brothels, where prostitutes and clients drank and conversed together, and where slaves could temporarily act like free men.
