Music BEETHOVEN & BIZET 2014-11-23 14:30:00
Description

Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra

Yariv Aloni, Music Director & Conductor

BEETHOVEN Coriolan Overture, op. 62
BIZET L’Arlésienne Suites
ENESCU Romanian Rhapsody No. 2
SMETANA Má Vlast: Vltava (The Moldau)

The GVYO opens its 29th season with a sparkling collection of musical treasures from Austria, France, Romania, and Bohemia.  Seething with tragedy, the instantly-recognized Coriolanus Overture is a central work of Beethoven’s “heroic” period.  The music of Bizet’s L’Arlésienne Suites evokes the beautiful Provençal countryside, while foreshadowing the pathos of lost love. Romanian Rhapsody No. 2 by Enescu is a rarely heard gem of impassioned majesty.  Má Vlast: Vltava is perhaps Smetana’s best-loved work: the symphonic poem describes the beautiful Czech river as it flows from the Bohemian Forest toward Prague, taking in along the way a forest hunt, a peasant wedding, and water nymphs bathing in the moonlight!

Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Film "La Dolce Vita" BIG Screen Classic! 2014-11-23 15:00:00
Description

LA DOLCE VITA

Federico Fellini, Italy, 1960, 175 min; Italian with subtitles; PG

The biggest hit from the most popular Italian filmmaker of all time, this rocketed Fellini to international success—ironically, by offering a damning critique of the culture of stardom. A look at the darkness beneath the seductive lifestyles of Rome’s rich and glamorous, the film follows a notorious celebrity journalist (a sublimely cool Marcello Mastroianni). This mordant picture was an incisive commentary on the decadence of contemporary Europe, and it provided a prescient glimpse of just how fame-obsessed our society would become. –Criterion Collection

Lecture/Seminar The invasive intertidal cordgrass Spartina spp. Are we on the path to coast wide eradication? 2014-11-24 19:30:00
Description

Victoria Natural History Society - MARINE NIGHT

Spartina spp. have invaded intertidal habitat along the coast of California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Where they thrive they convert interidal mudflats, important nursing habitat for fish and crustaceans, into monophyletic stands of Spartina, changing the waterflow and topography of this habitat. As the Aquatic Invasive Species Specialist of BC, Dr. Matthias Herborg will talk about these plants and their impacts, and how a coordinated eradication effort along the West Coast is dramatically reducing these invaders.

Film Atom Egoyan's "The Captive" 2014-11-24 19:00:00
Description

THE CAPTIVE

Director: Atom Egoyan; Canada, 2014, 112 min; PG

Despite some plot developments that strain credulity, Atom Egoyan’s wintry, Niagara Falls-set abduction thriller focusing chiefly on the emotional toll a young girl’s disappearance takes on the lives of her parents (played to anguished perfection by Ryan Reynolds and Mireille Enos) and law enforcers is an engrossing, visually striking variation on a genre. Artfully toggling between his signature, time-shifting style and mainstream expectations, Egoyan is less interested in whodunit conventions than capturing, with stylized eeriness, a crime’s psychic impact within a jigsaw-like, technology-propelled narrative that pays dividends for those who can overlook its credibility gaps. —Victoria Times-Colonist

Dr. Brian Thom

Assistant Professor

UVic Anthropology

Innovations in Ethnographic Mapping and Indigenous Cartography

In this colloquium, Brian Thom will discuss how UVic’s Ethnographic Mapping Lab is working towards implementing socially and politically powerful mapping initiatives with indigenous communities.  The talk will elaborate a on the history of maps produced by anthropologists working in Coast Salish territories, which have frequently reduced and essentialized elegantly relational indigenous ontologies. The challenge moving forward is to re-evaluate how anthropologists collaborate with indigenous communities to co-create and mobilize knowledge about land-based cultural practices using leading edge mapping technologies. This talk will highlight new approaches – both proposed and underway –  to effectively visualizing and communicating indigenous peoples’ knowledge and experience of land in the contexts of inter-generational knowledge transfer, public education, indigenous rights assertions, and in land and resource consultations.

EVERYONE WELCOME.

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-11-25 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-11-25 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated by lessLIE

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

In this exhibition the theme of perpetuation unifies the work of five contemporary Coast Salish artists who live and work in this region. The word perpetuation is meant to suggest a continuum of ideas and processes, which come from distinctive traditions that have existed over millennia. Perpetuation also infers some of the challenges that contemporary Coast Salish artists continue to face in the contexts of colonialism and assimilation as well as the dominance of other Indigenous traditions, which were often favoured by the art world, in both commercial and educational contexts. It is only in the last three decades that Coast Salish art has become more readily recognized by a wider audience as distinct from other Northwest Coast traditions.

This exhibition presents a wide range of art forms and ideas, and visitors will gain a better understanding of the cultural and stylistic elements that unify and inspire these contemporary artists in their own artistic practices. Artists featured are Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, John Marston, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.

Film "The Green Prince" 2014-11-26 19:00:00
Description

THE GREEN PRINCE

Director: Nadav Schirman; Germany/USA/UK, 2014, 101 min; PG

Nadav Schirman's terrific double-dealing documentary tells the story of Mosab Yousef, the cherished son of Palestinian and Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, who agrees to spy on his father for the Israeli secret service. Mosab insists that he is motivated by disillusion with Hamas, and by a desire to bring peace to the region, although it is clear that he's also excited by the subterfuge. The deeper he goes the more his loyalties become tangled. He becomes the link between Hamas and Shin Bet, playing both sides off against one another. Mosab sells his father down the river in a last-ditch attempt to keep him out of harm's way, reasoning that he will be safer in jail than on the streets of Ramallah. Schirman's film is as gripping as any high-concept Hollywood thriller and as psychologically knotty as Greek tragedy.  --The Guardian

Lecture/Seminar Bring Back the Bluebirds 2014-11-26 19:30:00
Description

Victoria Natural History Society - BIRDER'S NIGHT

The Red-listed Georgia Depression population of Western Bluebird has been considered extirpated in Canada since the mid-90s. In 2012, the Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team joined the international recovery effort to restore healthy breeding populations in the region. The Bring Back the Bluebirds Project on Southern Vancouver Island works closely with private landowners to maintain suitable habitat and mount bluebird nestboxes. The project has been able to release a number of breeding pairs into core habitat areas each spring— with promising results. Three years into the 5-year project,  Coordinator Jemma Green reports on progress and activities, and discusses how everyone can get involved in helping this charismatic songbird return to the region.

Authenticity at work: doing what you love, loving what you do

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. Being engaged in our calling offers a sense of meaning, 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 play a role in discovering one’s calling.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS EUCE Lecture - New Centers of Islamic Theology at Universities in the EU: The German Case 2014-11-27 17:00:00
Description

Growing numbers of Muslim citizens in Europe have caused many institutions of higher education in the EU to re-examine how religious instruction is organized in their countries. The models vary widely from one country to the next depending on the ways secularism is understood.  Germany’s “partial secularism” represents a particularly interesting case in this regard. Since its public schools include religious instruction for Catholic and Protestant Christians, the decision was made to extend this privilege to Muslim children as well, which in turn required the establishment of teacher training centers. Four Centers for Islamic Theology at German universities were opened in 2011/2012. Monique Scheer will discuss this new development and compare it to other cases in the EU. In particular, she will examine the hopes and fears these new centers of learning evoke, and what their establishment says about the challenges presented by shifting religious demographics in the EU.

Professor Scheer is the author of numerous books, most recently Emotional Lexicons: Continuity and Change in the Vocabulary of Feeling 1700–2000 (with Ute Frevert et al.). New York: Oxford University Press, 2014; and Unholy Feelings: Questioning Evangelical Emotions in Wilhelmine Germany (with Bettina Hitzer), in: German History (and co-editor of themed issue “Faith and Feeling”, in press).

Lecture/Seminar AHVS Lecture Series: From Ithaca to Number 31328: Greek Literature of the First World War 2014-11-27 16:30:00
Description

Cultures of the First World War
This lecture series has been This lecture series has been organized by the Department of Art History and Visual Studies. The speakers will reflect upon dimensions of the arts, intellectual activities, and political life in countries involved in the ‘Great War.’

From Ithaca to Number 31328: Greek Literature of the First World War
Evanthia Baboula, Department of Art History and Visual Studies (UVIC)

The First World War for Greece was only part of a series of conflicts that opened with the Balkan Wars in 1911 and ended with the creation of modern Turkey in 1923. Starting from an unknown gem in UVic’s library collection, the speaker will discuss how the literature of that period does more than reflect on the Greek participation in the Great War. It has left a heavy legacy by reflecting the ebbs and flows of national sentiment, the tragedies of loss and triumphs of survival.

Film "The Green Prince" 2014-11-27 19:00:00
Description

THE GREEN PRINCE

Director: Nadav Schirman; Germany/USA/UK, 2014, 101 min; PG

Nadav Schirman's terrific double-dealing documentary tells the story of Mosab Yousef, the cherished son of Palestinian and Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, who agrees to spy on his father for the Israeli secret service. Mosab insists that he is motivated by disillusion with Hamas, and by a desire to bring peace to the region, although it is clear that he's also excited by the subterfuge. The deeper he goes the more his loyalties become tangled. He becomes the link between Hamas and Shin Bet, playing both sides off against one another. Mosab sells his father down the river in a last-ditch attempt to keep him out of harm's way, reasoning that he will be safer in jail than on the streets of Ramallah. Schirman's film is as gripping as any high-concept Hollywood thriller and as psychologically knotty as Greek tragedy.  --The Guardian

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-11-28 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated by lessLIE

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

In this exhibition the theme of perpetuation unifies the work of five contemporary Coast Salish artists who live and work in this region. The word perpetuation is meant to suggest a continuum of ideas and processes, which come from distinctive traditions that have existed over millennia. Perpetuation also infers some of the challenges that contemporary Coast Salish artists continue to face in the contexts of colonialism and assimilation as well as the dominance of other Indigenous traditions, which were often favoured by the art world, in both commercial and educational contexts. It is only in the last three decades that Coast Salish art has become more readily recognized by a wider audience as distinct from other Northwest Coast traditions.

This exhibition presents a wide range of art forms and ideas, and visitors will gain a better understanding of the cultural and stylistic elements that unify and inspire these contemporary artists in their own artistic practices. Artists featured are Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, John Marston, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.

Lecture/Seminar Deans' Lunchtime Lecture Series: The European Union in Transition: Toward a European Federation or the Resurgence of the Nation- State? 2014-11-28 12:30:00
Description

The process of European integration is a unique experiment in history. Over the past 60 years independent states have gradually handed over sovereignty to the European Union in key policy areas. An integrated market, high mobility across borders, a common currency, the peaceful inclusion of many post-Communist countries in Central and Eastern Europe and an emerging common foreign policy are some important achievements of this process. In 2012 the European Union was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for the advancement of peace and reconciliation on the continent. However, over the past years the project of European integration has faced severe challenges: the lack of popular support, the severe economic crisis and the growing division between have and have-not countries have tested the member states resolve to move toward an “ever closer union”. In this talk, Dr. Schmidtke will highlight the nature of the European integration process, its historic achievements and current challenges.

Oliver Schmidtke is a Professor in the Departments of Political Science and History at UVic where he also holds the Jean Monnet Chair in European History and Politics. He currently serves as the director of the Centre for Global Studies in Victoria. He received his PhD from the European University Institute in Florence and has been a JF Kennedy Fellow at Harvard University, a visiting scholar at Humboldt University Berlin, a F. Braudel Senior Fellow at the European University Institute, and a Marie Curie Fellow at Hamburg University. His research interests are in the fields of the European integration, the political sociology and politics of migration, citizenship, nationalism, and the governance of migration and integration in Europe and Canada.

Other Arts, Spaces, Communities - AHVS Grad Student Symposium - Call for Papers 2014-11-28 08:00:00
Description

Visual Impetus XIII: Arts, Spaces, Communities

Graduate Student Research Symposium
Department of Art History and Visual Studies, University of Victoria

There is an increasing need for an understanding of visual culture not just in the arts but also across all disciplines. Often the examination of art places less emphasis on the effects of visual culture on its surrounding environment.  Yet so much knowledge can be gained by looking at how the locations, spaces, communities, and encompassing materials impact and engage with the arts.  Art has the power to define physical boundaries, reflect social values, bring people together, and even drive economic development.  The organizers of Visual Impetus XIV seek presentations that address visual culture, which have impacted or changed spaces and communities from around the world.

We welcome submissions from graduate students of all disciplines, as long as the content focuses on the arts or visual culture. Please send your paper proposal, consisting of a 250-word abstract and brief CV, to the symposium organizational committee.

Submissions must be made via email by December 1, 2014 to Committee Chair Regan Shrumm: rshrumm@gmail.com

Please include your full name, student status, contact information, and schedule availability with your submission. Presentations must not exceed fifteen minutes in length.

Visual Impetus XIV will take place on January 23rd and 24th at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia.

Would You Like Carbon or Chimps With That?
Conserving biodiversity and ecosystem services in African rainforests

Aerin Jacob
Postdoctoral Fellow, Geography, University of Victoria

Tropical rainforests are home to more than half the planet’s biodiversity – and millions of people depend on them for their livelihoods.  But human activities, like logging and farming, destroy or degrade huge areas of tropical rainforest each year.  Restoring these lands is critical to conserving biodiversity and providing ecosystem services, but ecosystem restoration can be difficult, expensive, and slow.  In this talk, I will explore how past and present human activities in Uganda’s Kibale National Park affect rainforest, wildlife, and people.  In Kibale, formerly forested land has been logged, burned, farmed, and replanted with native and non-native species.  Different strategies to restore habitat can cause trade-offs between biodiversity and ecosystem services, however I found consistent, positive relationships among tree diversity, primate and elephant foods, and provisioning, regulating, and cultural services.  Results of this research are being used by Ugandan park managers to improve restoration strategies to enhance habitat quality, carbon storage, and provision of non-timber forest products for local people.

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-11-28 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Film "PRIDE" 2014-11-28 15:00:00
Description

PRIDE

Director: Matthew Warchus; UK, 2014, 121 min; PG

“ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR!”

–San Francisco Chronicle

“A joyous film, full of love and warmth. Truly lovely.”

Time Out London

An entirely entertaining movie about a magical occurrence during the British coal miners’ strike of 1984-85.

Film "PRIDE" 2014-11-29 15:00:00
Description

PRIDE

Director: Matthew Warchus; UK, 2014, 121 min; PG

“ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR!”

–San Francisco Chronicle

“A joyous film, full of love and warmth. Truly lovely.”

Time Out London

An entirely entertaining movie about a magical occurrence during the British coal miners’ strike of 1984-85. When the Thatcher government threatens to close down the country’s pits, a young gay-rights activist (Ben Schnetzer) leads a group of gays and lesbians to the dreary South Wales town where they are greeted with varying degrees of warmth, hostility, and astonishment. The director gives the material a lilting charm. With Bill Nighy; the great Imelda Staunton, in feisty form; and Dominic West, who breaks the ice by putting on the seventies disco number “Shame, Shame, Shame,” turning a testy meet and greet into a delirious uproar. –The New Yorker

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-11-29 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.
