Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-07 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.

Conference En-gendering Social Transformation in China 2017-04-07 All Day
Description

 

En-gendering Social Transformation in China: Gender Dynamics, Women's Rights and Feminist Activism

Women, as in the rest of the world, make up roughly half China’s total population, but receive  far less academic attention and scrutiny. Particularly overlooked is their dynamic role in engendering the social transformation taking place in China since the late 70s. This symposium attempts to address this often-ignored aspect of China’s transformation, namely: how do women act as initiators, mobilizers and driving forces of social transformation?

This symposium will bring together leading scholars and activists on women and gender studies presenting up-to-date research on gender issues of China; exploring how gender relations in China are profoundly involved in globalization; how women’s struggle to gain rights has changed; and how increasing feminist activism engenders wider social transformation in China.

Running along side the Symposium is a photo exhibition “40 Moments: Chinese Young Feminist in Action” prepared by Young Feminist Activism, a NGO from China with an mandate for “emphasis on self-determination, direct action and media publicity” in promoting gender equality. The exhibition will display photos that record historically significant moments of social/self-transformation of China in gender and feminist perspectives.

Film HIDDEN FIGURES 2017-04-07 15:00:00
Description

HIDDEN FIGURES

Director: Theodore Melfi; USA, 2016, 127 min; PG

This exuberant, inspiring drama tells the fact-based story of three black women who strove for upward mobility as NASA mathematicians during the JFK era. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae star as the "human computers," who use their prodigious number skills to help calculate the trajectories for the Mercury Seven astronauts and their street smarts to negotiate humiliating workplace hurdles. The excellent leads get robust support from Jim Parsons, Kirsten Dunst, Mahershala Ali, and Kevin Costner. –Chicago Reader

Lecture/Seminar ?Brexit, Right Wing Populism, Migration: The Re-Bordering of Europe from a Border Region Perspective? with Dr. Martin Klatt 2017-04-07 12:00:00
Description

“Brexit, Right Wing Populism, Migration:

The Re-Bordering of Europe from a Border Region Perspective”

with Dr. Martin Klatt

 

WHEN: Friday, April 7th
TIME: 12:00pm
WHERE: DAVID TURPIN BUILDING A110

 

DETAILS: The EU seems to be in crisis. The year 2015 demonstrated that It has not been able to jointly tackle the issue of mass migration, 2016 brought the BREXIT, and right wing parties have been on the advance in many European countries. It’s relation to Russia and Turkey is strained, and US president Trump has openly stated that he preferred the EU to dissolve. On the ground, re-bordering is implemented on several internal and external borders, and discussed on others. Martin Klatt, associate professor at the Centre of Border Region Studies of University of Southern Denmark will discuss these developments and how they have affected EU-ropean border regions, where regional actors have strived for de-bordering, cooperation and increasing cross-border integration in the past 20-30 years.
