Lecture/Seminar ASBC: Lithic Technologies of the Discovery Islands: Materials, Stone Tool Production, and Communities of Skilled Practitioners 2017-04-18 19:30:00
Description

ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA In association with the Anthropology Department of UVic

Cornett B135, UVic Campus, Victoria

APRIL 18th LECTURE

Callum Abbott

“Lithic Technologies of the Discovery Islands: Materials, Stone Tool Production, and Communities of Skilled Practitioners.”

Abstract: I explore the findings of a diachronic analysis of three lithic assemblages from Quadra Island, British Columbia. From this, insights flow about the genealogy of technological practice of the people who inhabit the study area throughout its deep history as well as an emerging understanding of the reciprocal relationships between the makers of material culture and the things they make. This process of co-construction means they actively shape each other across time and space which has implications for communities of practice in the past as well as the present. Tracking the choices, movements, and gestures of the chaînes opératoires of stone tool production positions the (re)creation of embodied knowledge within the materially, environmentally, and socially-mediated world of learning and enskilment.

I use qualitative and quantitative methods to operationalize these theoretical foundations. These methodologies include: lithic artifact typologies, metric data analysis, X-Ray fluorescence, and thin section petrography. This constellation of method and theory weaves a narrative of technological change against a backdrop of technological continuity. Flexible (re)innovation of lithic technologies in tune with the rhythms of the landscape speaks to the sophisticated knowledge systems of the ancestral inhabitants of the study area and is part of what enabled many generations of people to thrive in this environment for millennia.

Bio: I am a graduate student in the Anthropology department at the University of Victoria specializing in coastal archaeology. The research presented here is a component of the Discovery Islands Landscape Archaeology (DILA) project. In addition to my academic focus, I am actively involved in several consulting archaeology projects in British Columbia. I currently work in the Nimpkish Valley of northern Vancouver Island (‘Namgis territory) as well as the central coast of BC (Heiltsuk territory). In the past, I have also worked as a consultant in the Interior of BC (where I grew up!). I enjoy the diversity of archaeology that takes place in this province and look forward to learning more about the fascinating histories of the people who have lived here since time immemorial.

The Archaeological Society meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month (Jan-May, Sept-Nov) at UVic’s Cornett building.

Lecture/Seminar From Alpine to Grassland - Plants of Waterton Lakes National Park 2017-04-18 19:30:00
Description

BOTANY NIGHT Victoria Natural History Society

Ian Cruickshank and Ali Jones spent the summer of 2015 working as Ecological Monitoring Technicians at Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta. This park contains over 1000 vascular plant species, as well as some spectacular landscapes and diverse wildlife. You’ll see some beautiful photos of Waterton’s plants as we take you on a tour of the flora across the park’s ecosystems, from grasslands, to snow forests, to the dry alpine ridges. There just might be the odd non-plant surprise to look forward to, as well!

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-18 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.

Other NILDP & NILTT Reunion 2017 2017-04-18 12:00:00
Description

The Native Indian Language Diploma Program and Native Indian Language Teacher Training Reunion will be held on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, 12:00-2:00pm in the First Peoples House, Ceremonial Hall.

This event sponsored by the Department of Linguistics, Faculty of Humanities and Indigenous Education is being held in order to honour the work undertaken by staff and students of NILDP and NILTT, as well as to facilitate a dialogue around if, or how, the participants would like to tell this story. Lunch will be served in the Ceremonial Hall of the First Peoples House and the event will be attended by staff and students of the program, as well as current staff involved in relevant programming at the university.

The Native Indian Language Diploma Program and Native Indian Language Teacher Training ran from 1974 to 1981 at the University of Victoria. These programs remain some of the earliest attempts of their kind at Indigenous language revitalization in North America. Initially, the programs were established as a response to requests from Indigenous communities, with the goal of regenerating community-based instruction and use. Centered around community-based approaches, the programs built a framework for Indigenous language revitalization that recognized and embraced the geographic and educational needs of students. Although ending in the early 1980s, this framework can still be seen in ongoing language revitalization programs at the University of Victoria. Many of the former students have gone on to lead community-based language revitalization in their nations, have become authors and educational coordinators and have received PhDs and the Order of Canada. At the University of Victoria, the impact of these programs is still present, making it all the more significant that this story is honored and that students have the opportunity to tell it.
