Film LOVING 2017-02-20 19:00:00
Description

LOVING

Director: Jeff Nichols; UK/USA, 2016, 124 min; PG

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE! BEST ACTRESS: RUTH NEGGA

Jeff Nichols directs a sublimely understated civil rights drama about a mixed-race Virginia couple who are fighting for the right to remain legally married in the 1950s. Although the story is based on a true story, a landmark case that went to the Supreme Court, it’s more romance than history lesson. Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga give winning performances as Richard and Mildred Loving, with Michael Shannon as the magazine photographer who brought their story to the world. –Maclean’s

“INTIMATE, MOVING AND SUPERBLY UNDERPLAYED.” –Washington Post

“THE MOST IMPORTANT MOVIE OF 2016, AND ONE OF THE BEST.” –Movie Nation

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-02-20 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.

Lecture/Seminar Exams that are fun for you and me! 2017-02-20 11:30:00
Description

Large classes often seem to necessitate the use of multiple choice exam questions either exclusively or with brief short answers. Two-stage exams offer a way to implement active learning in the classroom, improve student learning, and offer some immediate test feedback to hundreds of students: students write an exam independently, submit it, and then immediately write the same exam again in small groups. Contrary to some other active learning techniques that are perceived negatively by students, the majority of students view collaborative testing positively and (accurately) believe that it helps them learn. Attendees can expect a short discussion of relevant literature, a demonstration of how two-stage exams work, and other implementation tips.

Lecture/Seminar A tale of two glaciers: Rapid geomorphic evolution in the face of climate change 2017-02-20 15:00:00
Description

Dr. Dan Shugar
Assistant Professor, School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, University of Washington - Tacoma

Most studies of the effects of climate change on glacial systems deal with enhanced melt or contributions to sea level rise.  While these impacts are tremendously important, they are not the sole effects, nor are their consequences particularly rapid.  Here, I will discuss two catastrophic geomorphic events, each related to glacier retreat in the St Elias Mountains of Yukon and Alaska.  The first, a massive landslide in southeast Alaska, triggered one of the world’s largest tsunamis and scoured the ocean floor to depths of ~50m.  The second involved the piracy of one Yukon river by another, which has never before been reported as resulting from post-industrial climate change.  I will describe our unique data collection efforts, including multibeam sonar, lidar, and drone surveying, which are allowing us to understand these events in ways not previously possible.

Lecture/Seminar ANTH Grad Colloquium: Nocturnal Explorations: Rhythmanalysis and Chrono-Urbanism 2017-02-20 11:30:00
Description

GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

Nocturnal Explorations: Rhythmanalysis and Chrono-Urbanism

Dr. Eleonora Diamanti
SSHRC Post-Doctoral Fellow
Limited Term Assistant Professor, Anthropology, Uvic

Monday, February 20th, 2017
11:30 am – 12:50 pm
Cornett Building, Room A225

The dimension of the night has long been left in the shadows by urbanists, architects, politicians, and city dwellers who focused their attention on daily activities and planning. However, in recent years the night has received an increasing attention following the rise of nighttime economies, sleepless societies, and 24/7 cities (Bonfiglioli, Crary, Gwiazdinski, Straw), contributing to the formation of the so-called “Night Studies” field. Regarding the night as an object of study helps to “shed light” upon temporality, rhythms, and the intertwining links between space and time. It leads to rethinking the city and urban life in terms of rhythms through Henri Lefebvre’s theory of “rhythmanalysis,” focusing on the aesthetic, bodily, and sensorial experience of space. It also points towards what geographer, Luc Gwiazdinski, has named “chrono-urbanism”: an urbanism that looks at time management as a collective issue in urban areas, and insofar to the implementation of time-oriented politics. This talk explores the aesthetico-political dimension of the night. We will go on a journey through nocturnal explorations of nightlife practices, drawing on examples of festivals and disco-culture from Montreal and Italy. The marginal and ephemeral position such nocturnal practices have occupied in space, but also in time, created the opportunity for experimentation in the aesthetics and politics of the urban night and need to be addressed to understand the diverse, and often divergent, needs and tensions in order to create a more inclusive and accessible city.

EVERYONE WELCOME.

Lecture/Seminar Visualizing DSP Concepts on the Web Using the R-Language shiny Package 2017-02-20 10:30:00
Description

Graduate Student Seminar: This seminar describes an online web application, PeZdemoR, that was designed using RStudio and the R computer language along with various R-packages (especially shiny, signal, and pracma), to visually demonstrate how pole and zero placement in the z-plane relates to the response characteristics of a digital filter. The resulting frequency response, impulse response (group delay), transfer function and difference equation are displayed. A section on audio filtering applications is included, providing spectrograms, spectral plots, time-series plots, and sound playback.  Additionally, over 100 built-in examples of common filter designs and FFT windows have been developed.
