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

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.

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 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 ASBC: Follow the Shore: Settlement and Sea-Level Histories of Northern Quadra Island, B.C 2017-02-21 19:30:00
Description

ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA In association with the Anthropology Department of UVic

Cornett B135, UVic Campus, Victoria

FEBRUARY 21st LECTURE

Travis Crowell

“Follow the Shore: Settlement and Sea-Level Histories of Northern Quadra Island, B.C.”

For people who rely on the ocean, changes in sea-level can have a profound effect on daily lives, connections to place, and identity. When we study sea-level from a broader or regional scale, we do not require the time and space specificity that is necessary to examine the effect of highly local sea-level change at a specific time and in a specific place. Thus, the regional sea-level curves that have been well-refined and developed, may not answer (or allow us) to understand and appreciate what this change had on lived lives, particularly in cases where sea-level changed up to several meters in an instant. Human settlement histories, intimately connected to sea-level, can provide a window into the effect sea-level change has on a finer scale that is not currently provided by broader models. Using an intensive coring and dating program in Waiatt and Kanish Bays, Quadra Island, we propose to evaluate how settlements expanded shoreward as sea-levels fell during the Late Holocene.

Bio: Graduating from St. Mary’s University in 2015, I was accepted into the Archaeology graduate program at Simon Fraser University as a Hakai Scholar. My experience in research and excavation ranges from the founding of Halifax, NS, to Early Holocene sites in both NS and BC. Currently, my focus is the investigation of ancient sea-level and human settlement patterns on Quadra Island. I have been part of a number of consulting projects in NS covering the diverse and deep social history of the province. Concepts of “heritage” and the intersection of development and archaeology remains an area of interest for me.

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

DR. MEENAL SHRIVASTAVA, Athabasca University

"Invisibility of Women and Failure of Social Policy: Exploring a Causal Relationship Through an Individual Narrative Account"

Tuesday, February, 21, 2:30 pm DSB C118

Poster link

Despite vigorous scholarly discourses and targeted policy interventions for many decades, gender discrimination and inequality remain deeply entrenched all over the world. In the context of the rising sexual, social, and economic violence against women worldwide, my paper posits a relationship between social policy failure and the invisibility/erasure of women from historical movements/moment. I use the involvement of women in the freedom movement of India as a case study to point to a causal relationship.

This paper thus problematizes the global history of feminism by highlighting the scale and nature of the involvement of women in the Indian freedom movement. Using multi-archival research, the paper highlights some of the mechanisms through which women’s role and agency has been erased from mainstream historical narratives. Finally, my paper relates a personal journey of discovery, of my research on the political activism of my grandmother as a twelve-year old girl imprisoned for sedition in 1930, which underscores the significance of individual narratives and archival resources as instructive accounts tracing continuities and changes in the socio-political context of contemporary policies.

An alumnus of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi, Meenal Shrivastava is Professor and Coordinator of Political Economy and Global Studies at Athabasca University. Her research has led to more than two dozen peer-reviewed publications, one co-edited book (Alberta Oil and the Decline of Democracy in Canada (AU Press, 2015), and another book in press (Amma’s Daughters). She has served on several governance boards such as the Parkland Institute, CPSA, Canadian Consortium of University Programs in International Development Studies, and the South African Association of Political Studies.

Co-sponsored by Gender Studies and the Global South Asian Group.

Lecture/Seminar Emotion Recognition: is it universal? 2017-02-22 15:30
Description

Lansdowne Lecture

Presented by the Department of Psychology

Does human nature include an emotion signaling system? In his lecture, Dr.James Russell says two lines of research suggest not.  (1) Recent studies in two remote societies (Papua New Guinea, Mozambique) found that most people do not match the emotion and face in the predicted way.  (2) Various studies have documented the role of context (expresser’s body and situation, and experimental context) in what emotion is seen in a face. Rather than recognizing a pre-specified emotion from a facial expression, people interpret facial expressions in light of other information.

Description

Victoria Natural History Society: BIRDERS’ NIGHT
John Puschock, of Zugunruhe Birding Tours, began running expeditions to the Aleutians with his first visit to Adak in 2004. Six years later, he found a way to get to Attu, famed island of North American Big Years, and since then has been taken groups there in spring migration. Since the closure of the military base on the island, Zugunruhe is the only company still taking birders to this remote and legendary island. John will talk about the history of birding in the Aleutians, his experiences, and the birds to be found there.

MOONLIGHT

Director: Barry Jenkins, USA, 2016, 111 min; 14A

NOMINATED FOR 8 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE, DIRECTOR, SUPPORTING ACTRESS, SUPPORTING ACTOR, CINEMATOGRAPHY!

A haunting, exquisitely made reflection on African-American masculinity, Barry Jenkins' intimate character study traces the life of a black gay man from his troubled Miami childhood to maturity. The film pulls you in to its introspective protagonist's world from the start and transfixes throughout as it observes, with uncommon poignancy, his roughly two-decade path to find a definitive answer to the question, "Who am I?" Three remarkable actors play the main figure at different ages: Alex Hibbert as a young boy, Ashton Sanders as a teen and Trevante Rhodes as an adult. –The Hollywood Reporter

Lecture/Seminar Publilius Syrus in Victoria: A Marginalia Mystery 2017-02-22 All Day
Description

Publilius Syrus was an ancient Roman slave who acquired notoriety for composing bawdy farces and tangling with Julius Caesar. His writings are important to literary and cultural history. In this informal talk, Dr. Keith Bradley explains how a chance discovery of Publilius’ works in UVic Libraries has exposed a mystery involving the celebrated Scottish scholar J. Wight Duff, and his English nemesis, A.E. Housman (the “Shropshire Lad”).

Treasures and Tea in Special Collections and the University Archives bring together researchers, instructors, students, and members of the community to explore and share materials from the collections. The informal show-and-tell presentations are followed by discussion and refreshments.

Lecture/Seminar From mountain rivers to coastal seas: insights into the dynamic interaction of surface flows and bed morphology 2017-02-23 15:00:00
Description

Dr. Eva Kwoll
Postdoctoral Fellow, Geography, Simon Fraser University

The powerful interaction of water flow and Earth’s surface drives landscape evolution over time.  In steep mountain landscapes, rivers cut deep canyons into bedrock and transport material to the coast, unburdening the Earth’s surface and allowing uplift of mountain peaks. The sediment delivered to the coast forms sandy sea beds that are modulated into rhythmic features, which govern the pathways of sediment, nutrients and pollutants in ecologically rich and densely populated estuaries.

Here, I present two novel research projects into these very different, yet ultimately coupled, morphodynamic settings. In the first part, I show that flow circulation patterns in narrow bedrock canyons of the Fraser River vary with river stage and promote formation of step-pool topography throughout the canyon. In the second part, I examine the effect of sea bed dunes on flow hydraulics and fine sediment transport pathways in the light of human intervention in European Estuaries. Research methods comprise ship-based, acoustic monitoring of processes in the field and systematic laboratory investigations.

Lecture/Seminar Faithful Ties Make Good Colonists: Africans in Colonial North and South America 2017-02-23 16:30:00
Description

Presentation by Renée Soulodre-La France, CSRS Visiting Research Fellow
“They are extremely fickle, and peculiarly wild in their religious notions.” Such critical assessments of the character, belief, and practice of formerly enslaved people of African origins were shared by many colonial officials in both the British and the Spanish Empires in America. This research charts the crucial role that conversion and religion played in the projects to settle Africans and their descendants as freed people of colour in Panama and Nova Scotia at the end of the 18th century. An analysis of religious practice and beliefs puts into stark relief the uneasy jostling that framed the desires of both Africans and their descendants in the larger Atlantic Diaspora, as well as those of their neighbors and civil and religious leaders within both imperial systems.

Other Beyond conservation: facing the reality of biodiversity in a human-dominated world 2017-02-24 11:45:00
Description

The Talk:  The majority of the world’s ecosystems have been profoundly altered by human activities in ways that are essentially irreversible. Global population growth will place ever greater demands on ecosystems and the services that they provide. Using examples from waterway management in Australia, I will discuss the issue of how we manage ecosystems within the bounds of what society demands from them, and in the context of regional factors such as climate change, habitat fragmentation and species invasions. I will argue that restoration is most often an unrealistic goal, and that rebuilding and managing ecosystems for a range of values is the challenge that ecologists truly face. Using data from major environmental management interventions including landscape-scale revegetation, invasive animal control and environmental flow provision I will describe the challenges in restoring, remediating and re-engineering natural ecosystems.

Professor Ross Thompson is Director, Chair of Water Science and an ARC Future Fellow in the Institute for Applied Ecology at the University of Canberra. Ross is a freshwater ecologist with interests in the study of biodiversity and the restoration of landscapes. His fundamental research is in food web ecology; seeking the rules that determine how natural communities assemble and persist. His applied research addresses the ways in which food webs can be influenced by anthropogenic factors including urbanisation, land clearance, pharmaceutical contamination, river flow diversion and restoration, and invasion. He has an active research program on aquatic biodiversity and ecosystem function in urban and rural landscapes. Ross has published more than 80 papers, 10 book chapters and more than 200 scientific reports. He sits on the Australian Research Council College of Experts and has recently stepped down from the NZ Marsden Panel. His work has strong links to government and industry, and Ross sits on a number of senior technical advisory panels for local, state and federal research programs.

Lecture/Seminar Mapping, Indigenous research ethics, and the 'Global War on Tribes' 2017-02-24 14:45:00
Description

Zoltán Grossman
Professor, Geography and Native American & World Indigenous Peoples Studies, Evergreen State College, Olympia Washington

This is a review of the controversial Bowman Expeditions “México Indígena” project, a University of Kansas participatory mapping project in Oaxaca that was funded by and shared data with the U.S. Army’s Foreign Military Studies Office.  Dr. Grossman, a former co-chair of the American Association of Geographers’ Indigenous Peoples Specialty Group in 2008-10, will discuss how exposure of the project sparked an examination of geographers’ research ethics in working with Indigenous communities. He will look at the project in the context of the privatization of Indigenous communal lands, and global counterinsurgency campaigns focused on “tribal regions.”

Zoltán Grossman is Professor of Geography and Native American & World Indigenous Peoples Studies at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.  He is author of Unlikely Alliances: Native Nations and White Communities Join to Defend Rural Lands (University of Washington Press, 2017), and co-editor of Asserting Native Resilience: Pacific Rim Indigenous Nations Face the Climate Crisis (Oregon State University Press, 2012).

NOMINATED FOR 8 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE!

Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner play academics enlisted by the military to establish contact when alien spacecraft land on Earth in Denis Villeneuve's magisterial new movie. How refreshing to watch a film of this type in which no cities are destroyed. Anchored by Adams' internalized but deeply emotional performance, this is grown-up sci-fi that sustains tension while striking affecting chords on love and loss. –The Hollywood Reporter

Conference Responses to Crises in the EU 2017-02-24 All Day
Description

Senior Workshops/Panel discussions -
The Politics of the Euro Crisis: The Creation of New EU Institutions and their Impact on Member States

Two days of workshops and panel discussions bring together an interdisciplinary group of international academic experts from the fields of Political Science, History, Economics, Business, and Law as well as policy practitioners, to examine the institutions built by the European Union (EU) in response to the economic crisis. By examining individual crisis measures introduced by the EU and exploring in depth the functioning of the measures, scholars will ask why these institutions in particular were selected but not others. Topics such as banking integration, bank bailouts, the European Systemic Risk Board, deposit guarantees, sovereign bailouts, the European Central Bank, and fiscal union, as well as innovations in EU governance and political leadership through the crisis will be explored. These sessions are co-sponsored by a SSHRC Connection grant, the EUCE, the Centre for Global Studies, and the Departments of Political Science and Economics and the School of Business.

The sessions will build upon research currently being led by Dr. Amy Verdun as part of a SSHRC project entitled ‘The Politics of the Euro Crisis: The Creation of New EU Institutions and their Impact on Member States’. 

Feb 24 sessions will be at the University Club, University of Victoria, 9:00 - 4:00
Feb 25 sessions will be at the Laurel Point Inn, 9:00 - Noon

Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-02-24 10:00
Description

This exhibition celebrates the career of Kwakiutl (Kwakwaka'wakw) carver Ellen Neel (1916-1966), the first woman carver of monumental totem poles. Further, it acknowledges Neel's influential role as a professional artist and her contribution towards the recognition of Northwest Coast Indian art as a contemporary art form.

"Our art continues to live, for not only is it part and parcel of us, but can be a powerful factor in combining the best part of Indian culture with the fabric of a truly Canadian art form."

Ellen Neel

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-02-25 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 QUEEN OF KATWE 2017-02-25 12:30:00
Description

QUEEN OF KATWE

Director: Mira Nair; USA, 2016, 125 min; PG

Best for ages 10 and up.

An irresistible underdog sport movie, based on the true story of Phiona Mutesi (Madina Nalwanga), a chess prodigy from a poor section of Kampala, Uganda. The director, Mira Nair (‘Monsoon Wedding’), infuses a familiar genre with a vibrant and complex sense of place. Lupita Nyong’o (as Phiona’s mother) and David Oyelowo (as her coach) are excellent, as ever. –The New York Times

“Directed by the great Mira Nair, the film hits you like a shot in the heart.” –Rolling Stone

“Just try to resist the charms of Mira Nair’s ‘Queen of Katwe,’ a triumph-of-the-human-spirit movie that’s ultimately, well, triumphant.”Seattle Times

“This humanistic tale, helmed by a masterful filmmaker, offers a potent — and yes, inspirational — story of triumph against huge odds.”The Wrap

Music FACULTY CONCERT SERIES: Alexander Dunn, guitar 2017-02-25 20:00:00
Description

With guest Andrei Burdeti, guitar

Guitarist Alexander Dunn presents a program of music including little-known versions of Beethoven for two guitars as well as the beautiful music of Ferdinand Rebay — an undeservedly not well-known Viennese composer influenced by Brahms who produced a large body of work for guitar. This concert welcomes a new member to the Victoria guitar community: Andrei Burdeti, who will join Dunn in duo music. The program also includes the stunning Sonata para Guitarra by Turina.

Film ARRIVAL 2017-02-25 15:00:00
Description

ARRIVAL

Director: Denis Villeneuve; USA, 2016, 117 min; PG

NOMINATED FOR 8 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE!

Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner play academics enlisted by the military to establish contact when alien spacecraft land on Earth in Denis Villeneuve's magisterial new movie. How refreshing to watch a film of this type in which no cities are destroyed. Anchored by Adams' internalized but deeply emotional performance, this is grown-up sci-fi that sustains tension while striking affecting chords on love and loss. –The Hollywood Reporter

 “An eerie, tantalizing, altogether superb puzzler.”New York Magazine

Conference Responses to Crises in the EU 2017-02-25 All Day
Description

Senior Workshops/Panel discussions -
The Politics of the Euro Crisis: The Creation of New EU Institutions and their Impact on Member States

Two days of workshops and panel discussions bring together an interdisciplinary group of international academic experts from the fields of Political Science, History, Economics, Business, and Law as well as policy practitioners, to examine the institutions built by the European Union (EU) in response to the economic crisis. By examining individual crisis measures introduced by the EU and exploring in depth the functioning of the measures, scholars will ask why these institutions in particular were selected but not others. Topics such as banking integration, bank bailouts, the European Systemic Risk Board, deposit guarantees, sovereign bailouts, the European Central Bank, and fiscal union, as well as innovations in EU governance and political leadership through the crisis will be explored. These sessions are co-sponsored by a SSHRC Connection grant, the EUCE, the Centre for Global Studies, and the Departments of Political Science and Economics and the School of Business.

The sessions will build upon research currently being led by Dr. Amy Verdun as part of a SSHRC project entitled ‘The Politics of the Euro Crisis: The Creation of New EU Institutions and their Impact on Member States’. 

Feb 24 sessions will be at the University Club, University of Victoria, 9:00 - 4:00
Feb 25 sessions will be at the Laurel Point Inn, 9:00 - Noon
