Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecture: 5 Steps to Getting People to be More Active and Stick With It 2012-02-07 19:00:00
Description

Presented by Dr. Paul A. Estabrooks, Professor, Human Nutrition, Food & Exercise and Director, Translational Obesity Research Program, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA.

In this talk, Dr. Estabrooks provides practical examples for implementing a 5-step process to improve adherence to behavioral goals.

Lecture/Seminar Is Scholarship Ever NOT Scholarship? 2012-02-07 12:00:00
Description

Sponsored by: the Office of the Vice President, Academic and Provost, the Office of the Vice President Research, the Faculty of Law, and the Learning and Teaching Centre

Speaker: Neil Gold, Professor of Law and former Vice-President, International, University of Windsor; former Provost and Vice-President, Academic, University of Windsor; former member of the Faculty of Law, 1975-85, University of Victoria; and Founding Director, Learning and Teaching Centre, University of Victoria

At universities, we often define ourselves in terms of how learned we show we are. We usually define ourselves in a disciplinary way: we are chemists, lawyers, anthropologists, visual artists, electrical engineers, and so on. Scholarly endeavour is usually considered to be the practice of the study of our discipline; what then do we make of studies of the application of our discipline or studies of the practice of our discipline? What do we make of studies about our discipline, or of learning and teaching our discipline? How would we define clinical chemistry, legal history, applied anthropology, graphic design or engineering education? Are they scholarship? What do we make of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)? Is it different in quality from other scholarship? If learning and the sharing of learning are the core activities of university faculty, and scholarship and scholarliness are central elements of university culture, is there ever a time when scholarship is not scholarship? See event below for the afternoon tea.

Lecture/Seminar 2011-2012 Anthropology Lansdowne Lecture: The Archaeology of Intangibility: Monumentality in Cameroun 2012-02-07 19:00:00
Description

Dr. Nicholas David, Professor Emeritus, Archaeology Department, University of Calgary. In the first decade of the 21st century the Intangible caught the world's attention. According to UNESCO's convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage, the Intangible consists of "practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills" and of objects and spaces that are their physical manifestations. If so, the Intangible cultural heritage would be better termed Embodied. The nature of the embodiment of knowledge and skills is a subject on which there has been much recent interdisciplinary research and thought. The topic is of the greatest interest to archaeologists who, equipped with sharpened theoretical tools, are professionally committed to reveal the intangible--the meanings--embedded in the artifact. But just how do archaeologists get at meaning? As any student knows, it is far from clear how application of the theory and methods first introduced in Archaeology 101 can generate the areal synthesis of prehistory studied in the final year. Exposition obscures process. To bridge this gap, I chart the search for meaning in a unique set of Cameroonian monuments, the DGB sites of the Mandara mountains. I describe the messy (and hermeneutic) process of inquiry that, starting with field survey and excavation, leads through insights and inferences derived from, inter alia, typology, landscape archaeology, ethnoarchaeology and the natural sciences, to synthetic statements regarding the monuments' use and influence on their builders (their performative affordances and agency).

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecturer: Dr. Nicholas David, Professor Emeritus presents: The Archaeology of Intangibility - Monumentality in Cameroun 2012-02-07 19:00:00
Description

Dr. Nicholas David (PhD Harvard 1966), Professor Emeritus of Archaeology at the University of Calgary, is a renowned expert on African Archaeology and a pioneering practitioner of ethnoarchaeology (the study of contemporary material culture). Professor David has conducted path breaking ethnoarchaeological and archaeological research in the Sukur region of the Mandara Mountains (Nigeria/Cameroon border) for more than two decades and  has been instrumental in Sukur becoming identified as a World Heritage Cultural Landscape (the first so identified in Africa: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/938). A founding member of the Society of Africanist Archaeologists and founding editor of the African Archaeological Review, Dr. David is author of dozens of journal articles and book chapters, several monographs on European Upper Paleolithic and West African sites, two innovative workbooks that challenge students to interpret simulated archaeological sites, and co-author with Carole Kramer of a comprehensive handbook on Ethnoarchaeology. In addition he has produced a half dozen videos focused on African cultural heritage and technology and contributed significantly to current discussions of intangible cultural heritage in Africa.

Alumni Alumni Week 2012: Authenticity at Work: Doing What You Love, Loving What You Do 2012-02-07 18:30:00
Description

Our work occupies a significant portion of our time in daily life, plays a key role in how we define and identify ourselves, and shapes our life stories. Not surprisingly, our experiences at work have a major impact on our wellbeing and fulfillment in our personal lives as well.  But we all have different perspectives towards our work - for some of us it is just a job, for others it is a career, and for some it is a calling.  Seeing our work as a calling entails a sense of meaningfulness, purpose and authenticity that has a profound impact on our level of engagement, passion and satisfaction at work. We will explore what it means to have authenticity at work and the factors that help one find his/her calling.

Speakers: Dr. A. R. Elangovan & Mr. Peter Ciceri, BA '79

The evening will include light refreshments and door prizes. There will be an opportunity to network before and after the presentation.

Thank you to our door prize contributors including: University Centre Farquahar Auditorium, UVic Cinecenta, UVic Phoenix Theatre, Gustavson School of Business, UVic VIKES and the UVic Alumni Association.

Presented by the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business and the UVic Student Ambassadors, this event is open to UVic alumni, friends and current students. Seating is limited - register early.
