Lecture/Seminar "Dying to Live" Lansdowne Lecture 2017-05-16 19:30:00
Description

Dr. Jyoti Sanghera, Chief, Asia Pacific Section, Office of the United Nations High Commission on Human Rights (OHCHR) in Geneva will deliver a keynote address at the Forgotten Corridors: Global Displacement & the Politics of Engagement CARFMS17 Conference (uvic.ca/capi).

"Dying to Live" will focus on dispossession, eviction and precarity, the leitmotif of neoliberalism. How is the global migrant the chosen protagonist today for showcasing this leitmotif through spectacular suffering? How is the embodied experience of dispossession and perishability to be understood? Where does agency and subjectivity reside when lives are rendered disposable and the fateful struggle to live could literally mean dying? Has history done a full circle with markets today trading in enslaved migrants or are we in the throes of a 'hyperobject' - something beyond our ken? How does the migrant speak to create counter discourses against modernity and a counter allegorical episteme? What is the value, if any, of definitionally dismembering people who move into categories of refugees, smuggled, trafficked, economic migrants, etc? Whose interest does it serve to construct a hierarchy of migrants along a ladder of the more deserving and the less deserving?

The keynote presentation will grapple with the various frames which trap the lives of migrants, globally. It will examine the legal and policy gaps in the context of large and mixed movements of people in vulnerable situations and discuss how walls, fences and incarceration are deployed as tools of governance in response to the "migration crises." It will also reflect on the meaning of a rights based perspective and approach to migration.

Jyoti Sangera is a former faculty member of the Department of Gender Studies (Women's Studies).

Dying to Live

Dispossession, eviction and precarity are the leitmotif of neoliberalism. How is the global migrant the chosen protagonist today for showcasing this leitmotif through spectacular suffering? How is the embodied experience of dispossession and perishability to be understood? Where does agency and subjectivity reside when lives are rendered disposable and the fateful struggle to live could literally mean dying? Has history done a full circle with markets today trading in enslaved migrants or are we in the throes of a ‘hyperobject’ - something beyond our ken? How does the migrant speak to create counter discourses against modernity and a counter allegorical episteme? What is the value if any, of definitionally dismembering people who move  into categories of refugees, smuggled, trafficked, economic migrants, etc? Whose interest does it serve to construct a hierarchy of migrants along a ladder of the more deserving and the less deserving?

The keynote presentation will focus on these and other questions to grapple with the current state of play regarding the several frames which trap the lives of migrants, globally. It will examine the legal and policy gaps in the context of large and mixed movements of people in vulnerable situations and discuss how walls, fences, and incarceration are deployed as tools of governance and legality in response to the “migration crises.” The presentation will also reflect on the meaning of a rights based perspective to migration whilst recognising that the ‘other’ is included invariably through the lens of a liberal imaginary within this discourse and the ‘other’ or the native subject is always the lesser human or the sub human to be either saved or warehoused and obliterated.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-16 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.
