Film "BIRDMAN or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" 2015-03-01 15:00:00
Description

BIRDMAN or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Director: Alejandro G. Iñárritu;  USA, 2014, 120 min; 14A

NOMINATED FOR 9 ACADEMY AWARDS including

BEST PICTURE, BEST ACTOR – MICHAEL KEATON, SUPPORTING ACTRESS – EMMA STONE, SUPPORTING ACTOR – EDWARD NORTON, BEST DIRECTOR, CINEMATOGRAPHY and SCREENPLAY!

Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton), the fading megastar of the Birdman superhero franchise, is trying to reclaim artistic glory on Broadway. As opening night looms, he faces battles with his cast, his family and his own cracking psyche. It’s a tour de force not only from Michael Keaton but everyone involved. “Birdman” is everything you want movies to be: vital, challenging, intellectually alive, visually stunning, emotionally affecting.  –Empire

Description

Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra

Yariv Aloni, Music Director & Conductor

SUPPÉ Light Cavalry Overture
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS English Folk Song Suite
ELGAR Enigma Variations, op. 36

The cavalry’s coming – musically speaking – complete with bugle, fanfare, and cantering horses, in Suppé’s Light Cavalry Overture. The three movements of Vaughan Williams’ English Folk Song Suite richly reference traditional melodies such as “Seventeen Come Sunday”, “My Bonny Boy”, and “John Barleycorn”. Elgar’s Enigma Variations, a well-loved delight of the English repertoire, brims with humour, inventiveness, and poignancy.

Lecture/Seminar Graduate Colloquium: Department of Anthropology 2015-03-02 11:30:00
Description

Producer, Co-Director & Writer

Aarrow Productions, Inc.

1491: Adapting Charles C. Mann's Book for a Television Mini-series

Can a book change history? If it establishes a bold new way for the past to be understood, perceived or valued, then Charles C. Mann’s best-selling book, 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, has achieved this distinction. Mann’s book reinforces the often overlooked facts that the Americas were populated by sophisticated societies of people who were highly advanced in the areas of agriculture, mathematics, astronomy, architecture, resource management, governance, trade and art.  If a book can bring about a profound paradigm shift in how we acknowledge the history of a people, then by association, can a television series based on that book be history-changing as well? The aspiration of the docu-drama series 1491: The Untold Story of the Americas before Columbus is to investigate, celebrate and reveal the accomplishments of Indigenous people prior to 1491. Producing a television series that lives up to the expectations of the author, the readers and the people whose history is being told, is a formidable challenge. It’s critical that the producers, writers, directors, and indeed the broadcasters, be willing and prepared to embark on such a television project with a commitment to respect and honour the collective stories and histories of Indigenous peoples of the Americas. We embarked on this television project knowing that in addition to relying on the research in Mann’s book, we would need to conduct extensive research into a wide range of topics related to Indigenous history. The time has come for Indigenous people to take a leadership role in the research and interpretation of their individual and collective histories. This includes writing, producing and directing documentary and dramatic television series and films about the Indigenous history of the Americas.

Film Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" 2015-03-02 17:00:00
Description

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

Director: Wes Anderson   USA, 2014, 100 min; 14A

Cast: Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartman, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson

“WONDERFUL!” –The Telegraph

“FANCIFUL!” –Salon.com

“MARVELOUS!” –Entertainment Weekly

“NOTHING SHORT OF AN ENCHANTMENT!” –Austin Chronicle

An elaborate and delightful work of tragicomic confectionery set at an imaginary resort in an imaginary country that depicts the interwar years in Europe largely as a set of high-society hijinks out of 1930s Hollywood comedies. Anderson’s cast features one of Ralph Fiennes’ best performances and is loaded with peculiar delights, including cameos by Bill Murray and Owen Wilson. His script is loaded with zingers and divided into chapters with on-screen titles. This is one of Anderson’s funniest and most fanciful movies, but perversely enough it may also be his most serious, most tragic and most shadowed by history, shot through with an overwhelming sense of loss. –Salon.com

Other Community Conversation 2015-03-02 13:30:00
Description

Avoiding Seduction: Developing a Cadre of Anti-Colonial Leadership

It is often thought that good people can change a bad system from within. However, this is naive when we take into account that systems such as the federal government and Indian abnds have a way of crushing those with visions of governance that challenge the colonial status quo. How can we co-opt potentially good opportunities arising from colonial systems? Is this even possible?

In this Community Conversation, members of the Fort William First Nation Governance Committee report back on how they've used a band-led opportunity to decolonize themselves, and to centre Anishinaabeg governance principles in their work and lives. Key to keeping their work anti-colonial has been avoiding the "seduction" of long-term involvement with the band, and to focus on maintaining solidarity and good relationships internally throughout the first 12 months of their work. Future implications of our person decolonization process will also be discussed.

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecture - Quantum Information Science 2015-03-02 18:00:00
Description

Lansdowne Public Lecture

Monday, March 2, 2015 at 6:00 pm in the Bob Wright Building, Room B150

Professor Raymond Laflamme, University of Waterloo      

Quantum Information Science 

We are at the dawn of a new technological revolution.  Just as the 19th century was the Machine Age and the 20th century was the Information Age, the 21st century promises to go down as the Quantum Age. Harnessing and controlling the counter-intuitive properties of quantum mechanics will enable previously unimaginable technologies that will transform the ways we work, communicate and live. Quantum information processing forces us to learn a new language — one that describes the behaviours and interactions of the universe's most fundamental building blocks.  We are now learning to speak this quantum language — to control quantum systems and apply them toward unprecedented applications in the laboratory and beyond. Quantum technologies are already finding real-world applications, and the groundwork is now being laid for revolutionary advances in the coming years, from ultra-powerful computers to unbreakable cryptography and more. Professor Raymond Laflamme will describe some of the recent progress in the field, such as the experimental implementation of algorithms on small quantum processors, the development of quantum communication applied to cryptography, and he will explore some of the unexpected offshoots of quantum information research, such as advances in neutron interferometry and oil exploration.

Film "CITIZENFOUR" 2015-03-03 19:00:00
Description

CITIZENFOUR

Director: Laura Poitras; Germany/USA, 2014, 114 min; PG

“THE MOVIE OF THE CENTURY (TO DATE)!” –RogerEbert.com

“ONE OF THE MOST RIVETING FILMS YOU’LL SEE THIS YEAR!”Toronto Star

“AN EXPERTLY CRAFTED EXPOSE WITH UNPRECEDENTED URGENCY!” –HitFix

A WOW OF A THRILLER!” –Rolling Stone

FOUR STARS! The documentary of the year may also be its most hair-raising thriller. Part of Citizenfour’s thrill is that it allows the viewer to experience, first-hand, history being made, as National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden, hiding in a Hong Kong hotel in 2013, exposes how the U.S. government used an unprecedented global surveillance program. For those who think the Snowden revelations are old news, the movie offers extensive fresh justifications for paranoia, and a final kicker promising bigger revelations to come.

Lecture/Seminar Women and Alcohol: Breaking the Silence 2015-03-04 16:00:00
Description

It’s a troubling trend: women are catching up with men in terms of alcohol consumption, despite strong evidence that the adverse health effects of alcohol are much more dangerous to women. Ann Dowsett Johnston (author of the bestseller Drink: The Intimate Relationship Between Women and Alcohol) explores the role of marketing, campus culture, and socio-economic pressures influencing the way in which women drink. Her aim: to jumpstart a national dialogue on a public health challenge.

A panel discussion on women, alcohol and BC’s changing alcohol policy will follow. Panelists include: Dr. Tim Stockwell (Moderator, CARBC); Dr. Bernie Pauly (UVic Department of Nursing, CARBC); and Dr. Gerald Thomas (Director of Alcohol Harm Reduction, BC Ministry of Health)

Dowsett Johnston is an award-winning journalist and author of the bestselling Drink, named one of the best books of the year by the Washington Post. Part memoir, part journalistic exploration, Drink has won acclaim around the world. Winner of the Atkinson Fellowship on Public Policy, Dowsett Johnston is also the founder of the National Roundtable on Girls, Women and Alcohol and a founding director of Faces and Voices of Recovery Canada. She is currently CEO of Pine River Foundation.

These artists also investigate themes including the relationship between the photographic image and its physicality as an object, light as a material presence, and the time/space/memory relationship of digital media arts.

Lecture/Seminar Society's role in promoting violence in the sex industry 2015-03-04 11:30:00
Description

Our media is full of stories about the horrors of violence in the sex industry, with sex workers perpetually at the mercy of buyers and ‘pimps’. Our study shows that experiences of violence are not as pervasive as commonly assumed and that society – ourselves – including our unfair laws, stigmatizing attitudes, and inadequate policies, contribute to the violence that is experienced.

Speakers include: Cecilia Benoit (Centre for Addictions Research of BC, Department of Sociology), Chris Atchison (Department of Sociology) and Mikael Jansson (Centre for Addictions Research of BC, Department of Sociology).

This is a joint event between the Department of Sociology and the Centre for Addictions Research of BC.

Exhibit IN SESSION - ONE 2015-03-05 10:00
Description

January 17 to March 28, 2015

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes

Megan Dickie | Laura Dutton | d. bradley muir | Tara Nicholson

This is the first part of an on-going series of exhibitions over the next few years featuring the artists who work as Sessional Instructors in the UVic Visual Arts department. This exhibition looks at the recent practice of four artists who work with photography, video, and digital media arts. In Session - One celebrates the significance and power of photo-based art in an age where social media and advertising threaten to inundate and numb us with visual overload. These artists also investigate themes including the relationship between the photographic image and its physicality as an object, light as a material presence, and the time/space/memory relationship of digital media arts.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Faith-based Organizations as Loci of Law: A Malawian Case Study 2015-03-05 16:30:00
Description

Faith-based organizations (FBOs) are both reflective and generative of religious norms, which sometimes come into conflict with the norms of the state.  Debates about how these competing norms should interrelate often assume that only the state’s norms ought to be treated as “law”. In this presentation Chan considers these debates from a different angle, focusing on a four-year study that engaged senior leaders of Malawian FBOs in a participatory process to construct an interfaith theology of HIV/AIDS. She will introduce the audience to this study in an effort to reflect on how community leaders came to change their position on condom use, and to consider whether the Malawian study sheds light on other contemporary conflicts between religious and state-derived legal norms.

Dr. Kathryn Chan joined the Faculty of Law at UVic in January 2013. She carried out her doctoral work at the University of Oxford, where she focused on theoretical and comparative law issues related to the regulation of charities. Kathryn is also an executive member of the provincial and national branches of the Canadian Bar Association Charities and Not-for-Profit Law Subsection.

Film THE IMITATION GAME 2015-03-06 15:00:00
Description

THE IMITATION GAME

Director: Morten Tyldum; UK, 2014, 115 min; PG

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley

NOMINATED FOR 8 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE, BEST ACTOR: BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH, BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: KEIRA KNIGHTLEY, BEST SCREENPLAY, BEST DIRECTOR!

This is a highly simplified version of the highly complex life of proto-computer genius, World War II code breaker, and gay martyr Alan Turing — but even with all its distortions it tells a cracking good story. Turing is played with captivating strangeness by Benedict Cumberbatch. Turing insists that his machine will make fast work of the complex Nazi “Enigma” code. The film is true to the extraordinary friendship between Turing and Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley). –New York Magazine

Conference Journeys through the Medieval and Renaissance Worlds 2015-03-06 23:00:00
Description

A conference organized by the students of Medieval Studies, the research collective Mardinalia and the program of Medieval Studies.

Travels of all types provide ways of understanding of the Middle Ages and Renaissance in terms of exchange, transformation, and knowledge.  By the word “travels,” we envision journeys of the mind, the body, and the spirit. The theme of the conference also includes time travel, mapping, historiography, migrations, nomadic cultures and people, movements of objects, inner journeys such as dream-visions, introspection or conversion, as well as cross-dressing, transgendering, exile, adoption etc.

On behalf of Mardinalia, the Medieval Studies Course Union, and the department of Medieval Studies of the University of Victoria, we are inviting students and scholars to sail with us for two days of papers and conversations.

 

NB This event has multiple locations. The Afternoon session and the keynote lecture are held on Friday in David Strong Building C 116. The Staurday is held in the Harry Hickman Building (105).

Lecture/Seminar Sailing the High Seas: Vikings and Other Travellers in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance 2015-03-06 17:00:00
Description

Dr. Richard W. Unger

History Department, University of British Columbia

 

Journeys between the fall of the Roman Empire and the seventeenth century were often by sea. Travel over water was always easier than over land and, more important through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance changes in ships and the organization of shipping made sea voyages faster and safer.  The improvements increased the scope of European travel. Thus Scandinavian sailors in the eighth century began a process of trading, raiding and exploring that would culminate in the round-the-world voyages in the Renaissance.  Vikings journeys were made possible by the new kinds of boats they used which also set the limits of their travels.

This is a Richard and Margaret Beck Trust Lecture

Lecture/Seminar Technology in Support of Science on the Coastal Margin 2015-03-06 14:45:00
Description

Eric Peterson
Founder and President, Tula Foundation, and Hakai Beach Institute

The Hakai Institute (hakai.org) operates an ecological field station on the otherwise uninhabited Calvert Island on the BC Central Coast.  Our mission is Long Term Ecological Research.  Among many other things, we study the 7000 hectare watershed that drains into Kwakshua Channel.  We monitor many factors — hydrology, biogeochemistry, microbiology, forest ecology — and we do so long-term and year-round.

I will talk about Hakai’s use of remote sensing, including LiDAR, and the terrestrial sensor network and overall IT strategy we employ to support this mission.

Description

January 17 to March 28, 2015

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes

Megan Dickie | Laura Dutton | d. bradley muir | Tara Nicholson

This is the first part of an on-going series of exhibitions over the next few years featuring the artists who work as Sessional Instructors in the UVic Visual Arts department. This exhibition looks at the recent practice of four artists who work with photography, video, and digital media arts. In Session - One celebrates the significance and power of photo-based art in an age where social media and advertising threaten to inundate and numb us with visual overload. These artists also investigate themes including the relationship between the photographic image and its physicality as an object, light as a material presence, and the time/space/memory relationship of digital media arts.

Description

THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX

Wes Anderson; USA, 2009, 87 min; G - violence

Wes Anderson (“Grand Budapest Hotel”), creator of this stop-motion fable, was born to make animated films. Freely adapting Roald Dahl's children's book, Anderson creates an endearing fairy-tale thrift-shop universe, with quaintly painted backdrops, cotton balls for smoke, and a family of foxes. Yet Mr. Fox (George Clooney), Mrs. Fox (Meryl Streep), and their son, Ash (Jason Schwartzman), inhabit a world that's disarmingly, well, lifelike. –Entertainment Weekly.

Film THE IMITATION GAME 2015-03-07 15:00:00
Description

THE IMITATION GAME

Director: Morten Tyldum; UK, 2014, 115 min; PG

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley

NOMINATED FOR 8 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE, BEST ACTOR: BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH, BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: KEIRA KNIGHTLEY, BEST SCREENPLAY, BEST DIRECTOR!

This is a highly simplified version of the highly complex life of proto-computer genius, World War II code breaker, and gay martyr Alan Turing — but even with all its distortions it tells a cracking good story. Turing is played with captivating strangeness by Benedict Cumberbatch. Turing insists that his machine will make fast work of the complex Nazi “Enigma” code. The film is true to the extraordinary friendship between Turing and Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley). –New York Magazine

Conference Journeys through the Medieval and Renaissance Worlds 2015-03-07 09:30:00
Description

A conference organized by the students of Medieval Studies, the research collective Mardinalia and the program of Medieval Studies.

Travels of all types provide ways of understanding of the Middle Ages and Renaissance in terms of exchange, transformation, and knowledge.  By the word “travels,” we envision journeys of the mind, the body, and the spirit. The theme of the conference also includes time travel, mapping, historiography, migrations, nomadic cultures and people, movements of objects, inner journeys such as dream-visions, introspection or conversion, as well as cross-dressing, transgendering, exile, adoption etc.

On behalf of Mardinalia, the Medieval Studies Course Union, and the department of Medieval Studies of the University of Victoria, we are inviting students and scholars to sail with us for two days of papers and conversations.
