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

Film Monster Trucks 2017-03-19 12:45:00
Description

MONSTER TRUCKS

Chris Wedge, USA/Canada, 2016, 105 min; PG - violence

A spry, spirited and delightful family film that has nothing to do with giant-wheeled vehicles piling on top of one another in indoor arenas. Instead, it’s an eco-fable, delivered with energy, winking mischief, unobtrusive effects and a skilled cast.

An oil company, personified by its chief executive (Rob Lowe), is drilling in North Dakota when it hits a water-table mother lode of biological activity. A geyser releases an entity that finds its way to the small-town high-school senior Tripp (Lucas Till). Working at a junkyard, Tripp bonds with the creature, which he names Creech. Creech, subsists on oil, and takes up residence in Tripp’s decrepit jalopy, sometimes impertinently seizing control. Antic effects-laden car chases in town and country ensue, leading to a tender climax. The director Chris Wedge (“Ice Age”) makes a nimble, largely live-action debut with this movie, whose heart, humor and gentle conscience keep it humming. –The New York Times

Film A MAN CALLED OVE 2017-03-19 15:00:00
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

Lecture/Seminar WordsThaw Writers Festival: Master Class with Joanne Arnott 2017-03-19 13:30:00
Description

As part of The Malahat Review's annual literary symposium, WordsThaw Writers Festival (March 16 to 19 at UVic), we're offering a special workshop with Canadian writer, Joanne Arnott. Space is limited to 15, so buy early from our website.

"Oral + Text" - An interactive writing workshop exploring embodiment and breath as bases for writing, editing and performance. We will consider oral and literary text traditions, and ourselves as points of confluence and congruence.

One way to visualize oppression and mistreatment is as a struggle for public space, where some voices and histories are suppressed and marginalized, while others are given light, oxygen, attention, elevation: a central and a solid platform. Both individually and collectively, impacts of trauma can have a silencing effect, where survival can seem to depend upon silence.  Together these influences sow confusion and uncertainty.

Indigenous cultural practices often return us to the heartbeat and the breath as reflections of the primordial organization of life, echoing seasonal and generational change within the simplicity of our direct human experiences. As cultural workers, it is our call to be attentive to the universe in ways that honour the past and the future, while remaining connected to and rooted in the present moment unfolding.

Early registrants may submit samples of work (1-3 pages) for discussion. All participants come prepared to write and to share words.

Lecture/Seminar ANTH Grad Colloquium: Not Quite Hollywood: Participatory Ethnographic Film, Local Aesthetics, No Budget 2017-03-20 11:30:00
Description

GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

Not Quite Hollywood: Participatory Ethnographic Film, Local Aesthetics, No Budget

James B. Waldram, PhD, FRSC
Professor, Department of Archaeology and Anthropology

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

Documentary film is fast becoming a powerful means to communicate local issues to broader audiences of policy makers and planners. Participatory ethnographic film - where the participants and film-maker work collaboratively to tell their story - often requires significant compromises in film-making due to budgetary and logistical issues. Further, when local aesthetics are taken into consideration, the evaluation of the final product is often based on criteria quite different from that of the for-profit and cinematic-distribution types of films currently dominating ethnographic film festivals. This presentation documents the film-making process with a group of Q'eqchi' Maya healers as it moves from conception to "world premiere" in a rustic, thatch-roofed bar in southern Belize. Ultimately, the main criteria of evaluation used by the healers who participated, who authorized its public distribution, was simply, did we get it right?

EVERYONE WELCOME.

Lecture/Seminar Simulating human-environment interactions 2017-03-20 15:30:00
Description

Dr. Chris Bone
Assistant Professor, Geography Department, University of Oregon

Climate change and natural resource management have produced unprecedented challenges to our planet’s terrestrial and aquatic environments. These challenges call for interdisciplinary science approaches that aim to understand the multi-scale interactions and feedbacks between social and ecological systems. Simulation modeling offers a platform for facilitating this form of interdisciplinary science by engaging diverse perspectives in the creation of conceptual and computation representations of socio-ecological systems, and by providing tools for proposing and evaluating potential alternative futures under different environmental management scenarios. In this research talk, I will explore the use of simulation modeling as an interdisciplinary methodology, present results from an interdisciplinary project on large scale forest disturbance, and describe a how geographers are in a position to lead the way forward in pursuing a ‘model thinking’ approach for addressing the world’s environmental challenges.

Lecture/Seminar ASBC: March lecture: The Spanish Presence in the Pacific Northwest: Manuel Quimper's 1790 Exploration of the Strait of Juan de Fuca 2017-03-21 19:30:00

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.

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).

Description

THE SALESMAN

Director: Asghar Farhadi; Iran, 2016, 125 min; Persian with subtitles;

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

After scoring an Oscar for A Separation, Asghar Farhadi returns to Tehran for this quietly gripping drama about a couple, amateur actors appearing in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, whose relationship starts to splinter in the aftermath of an assault. Married couple Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) move into a new flat, not knowing that its previous occupant was a woman despised by her neighbours. Rana is attacked by a strange man. As Rana retreats into herself, Emad, frustrated by his inability to comfort her, decides to play detective and find the culprit himself. But if and when he does, what will he do then? And at what cost? –Vancouver International Film Festival

“A classic whodunit with Asghar Farhadi's characteristically impeccable plotting and buildup of suspense.”Film Journal International

“Farhadi steers his narrative to a shattering conclusion about the quality of mercy and vengeance.”Maclean’s

Lecture/Seminar #RadicalSolidarity - Why feminism matters now more than ever 2017-03-23 19:00:00
Description

How does one become a feminist in Germany these days? And why is there even a need to be feminist in the country that has Angela Merkel at the helm - who is said to be the most powerful woman in the world? Is online activism the solution to all our feminist demands? And how do we protect the rights of marginalized people, yet also continue to push for a better world for everyone when right-wing politics and neo-fascist ideas are on the rise in so many countries all over the world?

In her talk author and feminist activist Anne Wizorek explains her concept of #RadicalSolidarity and gives a short overview of the state of feminist activism. She addresses the current discourse as well as the backlash in Germany, and how it is embedded in international political developments.

Film Belo Monte: After the Flood - A Canada Water Week Film Screening and Panel Discussion 2017-03-23 19:00:00
Description

This Canada Water Week, you are invited to attend a screening of the film “Belo Monte: After the Flood” followed by a panel discussion with Michele-Lee Moore, Merrell-Ann Phare, and the Honourable Michael Miltenberger.

WHAT: “Belo Monte: After the Flood”—A Canada Water Week Film Screening and Panel Discussion

DATE: Thursday, March 23rd

TIME: 7 p.m. to 9 p.m

MORE INFO:

Join us this Canada Water Week for a film screening and panel discussion exploring the effects of large-scale energy projects on communities in Brazil and Canada.

Directed by award-winning environmental documentarian Todd Southgate and produced in collaboration with Amazon Watch, International Rivers, and Cultures of Resistance, “Belo Monte: After the Flood” brings us to the shores of the Xingu River in the heart of the Amazon. There, we hear the stories of indigenous community members and their decades-long fight against the multi-billion-dollar Belo Monte hydroelectric project. Amidst government corruption, environmental degradation, and neglected mitigation measures, this film shows how community members have taken matters into their own hands to fight for the protection of their waterways.

Following the film, we’ll be joined by leading aboriginal law expert Merrell-Ann Phare (Executive Director, Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources & Member, FLOW), Michael Miltenberger (former MLA and Northwest Territories Minister of the Environment & Member, FLOW), and Michele-Lee Moore (Associate Professor, Department of Geography, University of Victoria & Founder, Water, Innovation, and Global Governance Lab). They will lead a discussion on how the struggles of Brazil’s indigenous peoples parallel those of First Nations here in Canada, and the opportunities present in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

This event is being co-hosted by the POLIS Water Sustainability Project and the Water, Innovation, and Global Governance (WIGG) Lab, based at the University of Victoria’s Centre for Global Studies.  

RSVPs are not required, but are appreciated. Contact Dana Holtby at ra@polisproject.org or 250-721-7211.

Lecture/Seminar history of Jewish Scholarship on Islam: The Story of a Fascination 2017-03-23 16:30:00
Description

As a leading scholar of Judaism, and religion and culture in European history, Dr. Heschel will present the history of Jewish scholarship on Islam in the modern world. In the nineteenth century, Jewish scholars in Europe began to demonstrate the parallels between Judaism and Islam. Theirs was a distinct Orientalism that focused on Islam’s rationalism, monotheism, and religious law. Dr. Heschel will reflect on the role of Jewish scholarship within the larger context of the nineteenth century’s approach to “religion,” European imperialism, and its adoption and transformation of insights drawn from New Testament scholarship.

Film THE SALESMAN 2017-03-23 19:00:00
Description

THE SALESMAN

Director: Asghar Farhadi; Iran, 2016, 125 min; Persian with subtitles;

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

After scoring an Oscar for A Separation, Asghar Farhadi returns to Tehran for this quietly gripping drama about a couple, amateur actors appearing in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, whose relationship starts to splinter in the aftermath of an assault. Married couple Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) move into a new flat, not knowing that its previous occupant was a woman despised by her neighbours. Rana is attacked by a strange man. As Rana retreats into herself, Emad, frustrated by his inability to comfort her, decides to play detective and find the culprit himself. But if and when he does, what will he do then? And at what cost? –Vancouver International Film Festival

“A classic whodunit with Asghar Farhadi's characteristically impeccable plotting and buildup of suspense.”Film Journal International

“Farhadi steers his narrative to a shattering conclusion about the quality of mercy and vengeance.”Maclean’s
