Film "WALKING THE CAMINO: Six Ways to Santiago" 2014-10-19 15:00:00
Description

WALKING THE CAMINO: Six Ways to Santiago   

Director: Lydia B. Smith   USA/Spain, 2013, 84 minutes

BACK BY OVERWHELMING POPULAR DEMAND!    

“Camino” follows various pilgrims, from ages 3 to 73, as they attempt to cross an entire country on foot -- with only a backpack, a pair of boots and an open mind.  Driven by an inexplicable calling and grand sense of adventure, each person throws themselves heart and soul into their challenging trek to Santiago de Comostela, and most importantly, their personal journey to themselves. –Rose Theatre

This non-profit documentary follows six walkers on their 500-mile walk of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in Spain. It is beautifully filmed and very well paced. The director cast the movie with walkers she met on the Camino. They include an American, two Canadians, and walkers from Brazil, Portugal, Denmark and France. They are each on a separate journey rather than walking together. All are trekking in the traditional way, carrying their gear in a backpack and staying at the albergue pilgrim hostels along the way.

The film is gorgeous, filled with beautiful landscapes. This is not a "how to" guide. While we see daily life on the Camino, and breathtaking views of the scenery, it is more about the people and their personal experiences. I enjoyed the balance between "the interior Camino" challenges of the walk and the physical and social challenges.

Some of the most touching moments are when the walkers are moved to tears in recounting how other walkers helped them along the way. That spirit of giving to each other and supporting every person along the way is a deep tradition on the Camino, and one I would wish could be spread to our daily lives. I found many take-home messages, but my favorite is "A bad day for the ego is a good day for the soul."—About.com

Film "The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared" 2014-10-21 19:00:00
Description

THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED
Director: Felix Herngren 
Sweden, 2013, 114 min; Swedish with subtitles

There's more than a sprinkling of magic in this beautifully conceived and executed tale about a centenarian (Robert Gustafsson) who likes blowing up things. Adapted from Jonas Jonasson's best selling novel, director Felix Herngren has crafted a clever Swedish black comedy that feels as though it is in perpetual motion. It is full of surprises and if you thought that a film whose central character is 100 years old might be dull and staid, think again. The character is simply a conduit with whom we fly on a madcap carpet ride that incorporates historic events and icons from the past. This uplifting, crowd pleasing entertainment is a road movie, a character study, a wild adventure and black comedy all rolled into one. It's a helluva ride.—Urban Cinephile

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-22 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 Bird collisions with glass--a real headache 2014-10-22 19:30:00
Description

BIRDERS’ NIGHT - VICTORIA NATURAL HISTORY SOCIETY
 
Collisions with windows are considered to be one of the largest sources of human-caused mortality for birds in North America. An estimated 25 million birds are killed annually in collisions with buildings in Canada and 365-988 million in the U.S. Many high-rise office buildings are clad in large expanses of reflective glass, that can cause a disproportionately high number of collisions annually, particularly if they are adjacent to areas that attract high densities of birds. Krista de Groot will explore why birds collide with glass, the scope and severity of the issue, and what you can do about it in and around your home and business.

Film "The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared" 2014-10-22 19:00:00
Description

THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED
Director: Felix Herngren 
Sweden, 2013, 114 min; Swedish with subtitles

There's more than a sprinkling of magic in this beautifully conceived and executed tale about a centenarian (Robert Gustafsson) who likes blowing up things. Adapted from Jonas Jonasson's best selling novel, director Felix Herngren has crafted a clever Swedish black comedy that feels as though it is in perpetual motion. It is full of surprises and if you thought that a film whose central character is 100 years old might be dull and staid, think again. The character is simply a conduit with whom we fly on a madcap carpet ride that incorporates historic events and icons from the past. This uplifting, crowd pleasing entertainment is a road movie, a character study, a wild adventure and black comedy all rolled into one. It's a helluva ride.—Urban Cinephile

Other Lakes in Garry Oak Ecosystems 2014-10-23 19:00:00
Description

Summit Park is one of the remnant Garry Oak ecosystems in Victoria. Located on top of a hill it has a panoramic view of the city and the Olympic Mountains. The branching patterns of the oaks are particularly picturesque. The hilltop has a large Smith Hill water reservoir, built in 1908, that is frequented by ducks. There is a lookout at the Telus tower that also has an attractive installation of community art depicting a Garry Oak ecosystem. We can find a lake in another Garry Oak ecosystem, Goodacre Lake in Beacon Hill Park.

Lecture/Seminar Dr. Hugh Elton, "The Late Roman Army and the Huns" 2014-10-23 19:30:00
Description

Classical Association of Vancouver Island
Third Meeting of the 2014/2015 Academic Year
Thursday October 23rd at 7:30 pm in University Centre Room A180 (Senate Room)

Professor Hugh Elton (Trent University) will present a lecture entitled "The Late Roman Army and the Huns."

Hunnic military supremacy is one of the many reasons put forward for the collapse of the western Roman Empire in the fifth century. This talk examines the evidence for Hunnic warfare, especially mounted archery, and then compares it to the Late Roman army. The archaeology of the two cultures shows a completely different set of military capabilities which make it doubtful that Hunnic mounted archery alone was a major factor in the fall of the western Roman Empire.

The Classical Association of Vancouver Island is the University of Victoria’s organization for people interested in the Greek and Roman worlds. Monthly lectures by local and international scholars take place at UVic, hosted by the Department of Greek and Roman Studies. All members of the Victoria community are welcome to attend the lectures.

Lecture/Seminar The Future of Holocaust Education 2014-10-23 15:00:00
Description

The scale of the Holocaust is something that is not quantifiable in a textbook, article or picture. It is an event in history that, despite the prolific amount of academic research done, it will forever be an unprecedented representation of intolerance, violence and hate. The field school itself changed our perception and consumption of history. It provided a dynamic learning experience taking information that was Œ2D¹ (books, pictures, articles, lectures), and transforming it into something that felt real and concrete: physically seeing extermination camps, articles of clothing from prisoners, first hand accounts from survivors etc, made the history of this event Œ3D.¹  Each victim of the Holocaust had a life, a story, a family. Oral history such as this will not be around forever, and with this in mind, we felt very privileged to be on the receiving end of such an integral part of continuing on the memory of those who survived, in addition to the memory of those who did not. The privilege of hearing these stories brings with it a responsibility to share them with others.

During this presentation, Alex Richardson and Russell Tseand, participants of 2014 Holocaust Field School, would like to provide snapshots of the field school, with hopes that you can piece together your interpretation of what Holocaust education means to you, where you think it should go in the future and the importance of I-witness education to future generations worldwide.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-23 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 CSRS Public Lecture Series - Understanding the Contours of Sikh and Muslim Conflict in Britain and North America 2014-10-23 16:30:00
Description

This lecture will map out the contemporary conflict between Sikhs and Muslims in the UK and North America. Focusing upon the way in which the conflict has been represented specifically across the Sikh community, this lecture will draw upon findings from the UK and US to trace out the contours of inter-ethnic tensions as they emerge in multicultural landscapes. Drawing upon themes including the war on terror; “forced” conversions of Sikhs into Islam; and historical antagonisms, the lecture will question the extent to which Sikh identity is maintained through imagining a Muslim “enemy”. 

Dr Katy P. Sian is a Research Fellow at the University of Manchester in the School of Social Sciences. She is the author of Unsettling Sikh and Muslim Conflict: Mistaken Identities, Forced Conversions, and Postcolonial Formations (2013) Lexington Books: Lanham, and co-author of, Racism, Governance, and Public Policy: Beyond Human Rights (2013) Routledge: London. Her research interests include postcolonial studies, critical race theory, Sikh studies, religion and identity, migration and diaspora.

Other Arts, Spaces, Communities - AHVS Grad Student Symposium - Call for Papers 2014-10-24 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 30th and 31th at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia.

Film "CALVARY" 2014-10-24 15:00:00
Description

CALVARY
Director: John Michael McDonagh   Ireland, 2014, 101 min; 14A
Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-24 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 Dr. Hugh Elton "The Discovery of a Lost Roman City at Alahan, Turkey" 2014-10-24 14:30:00
Description

Professor Hugh Elton (Trent University) 
"The Discovery of a Lost Roman City at Alahan, Turkey"

Friday October 24, 2014, 2:30 pm
Seminar in Clearihue B415

In the course of a recent field survey in southern Turkey around the churches at Alahan, a small Roman city was discovered. This talk explains the context for the fieldwork, the discovery of the city, and suggests a possible identification. As a result of the discovery, our interpretation of the famous churches needs to be changed, as they no longer sit in majestic isolation on top of a hillside, but now lie in the suburbs of the city.

Lecture/Seminar Critical DH Group 2014-10-24 10:00:00
Description

Critical DH Group – All welcome!

Fall 2014 - Spring 2015

Based in part upon the public discussion of the concept of Critical Digital Humanities at The Many Masks/Masques of Heidegger: Technology, Poeisis and Humanism: A Literary Theory Research Group Symposium (The Seminar for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, Vancouver Island University, Cowichan Campus, May 2014), Professor Richard J. Lane (MeTA DH Lab, VIU) and Professor Emile Fromet de Rosnay (Dept. of French, UVic), now invite the academic community to meet to discuss some of the theoretical interests sketched so far (see lists below). While these lists are obviously in no way exhaustive, they do form the focus for the first year that this group aims to meet.

We invite position papers of five to ten minutes on the topics below (or simply join us to hear the papers and hopefully join in with some discussion). We are open to theoretical considerations/presentations of DH projects underway, especially where such projects intersect with the concepts, methods, and/or theorists we aim to explore in our first year.

Concepts, methods, etc.

Dialectical materialism
Materiality
Little data
Close reading vs distant reading
media, mediation, remediation
DH and postcolonialism (#dhpoco)
Institutionalized DH
DH and social sciences - anthropology, sociology, geography etc.
DH and object-oriented ontology (OOO)
DH biosemiotics and biotechnology
Critical making

Thinkers (conceptualizing DH through a focused theorist/lens)

Heidegger
Sloterdijk
Haraway
