MARCH LECTURE
The Spanish Presence in the Pacific Northwest:
Manuel Quimper's 1790 Exploration of the Strait of Juan de Fuca

Dr. Pablo Restrepo-Gautier

Tuesday, March 21st , 7:30
Cornett B135, UVic Campus, Victoria

On May 20th, 1790,  Lieutenant Francisco de Eliza gave Sub-Lieutenant Manuel Quimper orders to explore the Strait of Juan de Fuca. With Gonzalo López de Haro, Quimper set sail from the Spanish settlement, Santa Cruz de Nutka, on May 31st of the same year, leaving the strait for Monterrey on August 16th. Quimper and Haro explored and mapped the strait and took possession of several sites on behalf of the Spanish Crown. This talk will provide a brief survey of the Spanish presence in the Pacific Northwest, will outline how Quimper’s expedition was carried out and will explain how acts of possession were performed.

Bio: Dr. Pablo Restrepo-Gautier is an Associate Professor in the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies. He specializes on 17th-century Spanish drama and textual criticism. Since 2105, Dr. Restrepo-Gautier has been researching the manuscripts of the 18th-century Spanish exploration of the Pacific Northwest.

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

Lecture/Seminar Resistance and Reparation: Idle No More and the Politics of Refusal 2017-03-21 14:30:00
Description

Dr. Vicki Hseuh, Western Washington University

Idle No More represents a multi-modal way of staging reparative claims in which resistance, refusal, and contention function to highlight and accentuate the shape-shifting and opportunistic dimensions of colonial engagement and recognition. I draw on the conception of political refusal developed in Audra Simpson’s Mohawk Interruptus to characterize the Idle No More campaign as an example of multi-faceted and flexible practices of reparative refusal at work today. Like Simpson’s account of the Mohawk, Idle No More's activist and spontaneous refusals serve to highlight the long history of broken promises and failed agreement. In addition, these refusals bring to the fore both the possibilities and the difficulties of enacting self-determination and sovereignty in contention with colonial states. In the paper, I'm particularly interested in the emotive features at work in the politics of refusal.

Vicki Hsueh is Director of the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program and an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Western Washington University. Her teaching and research interests include the history and historiography of political theory, protest movements and civic action, identity politics and theory, indigenous politics and post-colonial theory. She is the author of Hybrid Constitutions: Making and Unmaking Power and Privilege in Colonial America and articles in The Review of Politics, Contemporary Political Theory, Journal of the History of Ideas, and History of Political Thought. She has been the recipient of several fellowships including the Barbara S. Mosbacher Fellowship (John Carter Brown Library), the Kate B. and Hall J. Peterson Fellowship (American Antiquarian Society), and the Mayer Fellowship (Huntington Library).

Film A MAN CALLED OVE 2017-03-21 19:00:00
Description

A MAN CALLED OVE

Director: Hannes Holm; Sweden, 2016, 116 min; Swedish with subtitles; PG

NOMINATED FOR 2 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST FOREIGN FILM!

ONE OF THE BIGGEST SWEDISH BOX OFFICE HITS OF ALL TIME!

A touching comic crowd-pleaser that may call for a tissue or two by the end, A Man Called Ove is an irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel. It’s a heartwarming tale about a stubborn, short-tempered man with steadfast beliefs, strict routines and the feeling that everyone around him is an idiot—and no reticence about telling them so. After new neighbours accidentally run over his mailbox, the cantankerous old git’s solitary world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined…

The action unfolds both in the present and in the past. Ultimately, it’s a friendship with the new neighbours——that gives Ove a new lease on life… Holm makes poignantly clear that being needed is an essential human desire, and life is so much sweeter when shared with others. –Variety

“A MORBIDLY FUNNY AND MOVING SUCCESS!” –RogerEbert.com

“IT’S HARD TO RESIST THE JOY OF THE FILM, the unbridled heart, and Ove’s tremendous, hilarious hatred for all the idiots of the world.” –The Playlist

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-21 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.
