Lecture/Seminar Sheila Watt-Cloutier - CARFMS17 Keynote Presentation 2017-05-15 19:30:00

Sheila Watt-Cloutier,
Environmental, Cultural and Human Rights Advocate

15 May - 7:30pm
David Lam Auditorium 
CARFMS Keynote Presentation

Open to the public - no registration required for keynote presentations

We must now speak environment, economy, foreign policy, health and human rights in the same breath

In this truly globe-spanning talk, Watt-Cloutier provides a clear, meaningful, and comprehensive understanding of the way these issues are interconnected, and what it means for the future of our planet. Speaking on leadership, she shows how your organization fits into the grand scheme of things, and organizations can fulfill their mandate by understanding how the local connects to the global, and vice versa. 

With a focus on solutions, Watt-Cloutier brings the realities of the Arctic―where Inuit today face profound challenges to their environment, their economy, their health and their cultural well-being―to light. The challenges they face are clearly connected to the industries we support, the disposable world we have become, and the non-sustaining policies we create. Because her Inuit culture faces the most extreme challenges of globalization, Watt-Cloutier speaks from firsthand experience, and couples that with her extensive experiences as a global leader.

Drawing upon her ancient culture, and speaking from a position of strength, not victimhood, she helps audiences find common ground. Her Arctic voice--not as far away as we might imagine--enlightens and inspires. With inclusive good will, it bridges some extremely divided gaps around the world.

Conference CARFMS17 - Forgotten Corridors: Global Displacement & the Politics of Engagement 2017-05-15 09:00:00

Forgotten Corridors: Global Displacement & the Politics of Engagement

15 - 18 May
University of Victoria

10th Annual Conference of the Canadian Association for Refugee and Forced Migration Studies

Never before in modern history have so many people been forced to leave their homes and journey abroad for temporary or permanent settlement. According to the UNHCR Mid-Term June 2015 report, “by the end of 2015, 65.3 million individuals were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, generalized violence or human rights violations.”

Much attention in the west has been directed at the steady flow of refugees leaving war-torn countries to end up on the shores of the Mediterranean. However, many of the displaced remain neglected or forgotten; travelling little watched corridors en route to temporary destinations in detention centers, refugee camps, or makeshift housing. These hierarchies of human mobility hide the precarious nature of the lives of millions of migrants, demanding attention and engagement to make meaningful transformations.

The Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives at the University of Victoria will host the tenth annual CARFMS conference from May 15th to 18th, 2017 in beautiful Victoria, BC. Join researchers, policy makers and activists from diverse disciplines and regions to discuss the parameters of global displacement, especially the experiences of those taking routes less traveled.

Film I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO 2017-05-15 19:00:00


Director: Raoul Peck, France/USA, 2016, 95 minutes


In one of the most courageous and assertive documentaries of the year, Raoul Peck picks up on an unfinished manuscript by James Baldwin to examine the issue of race in America through the (too-short) lives of Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, and Malcolm X. Connecting these martyrs of the Civil Rights movement with Black Lives Matter, Peck has produced a searing work that cuts to the very heart of American identity. –Vancouver International Film Festival

“FIVE STARS!  One of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made.”The Guardian

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-15 10:00

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.
