Film "ETERNITY - The Movie" 2014-11-16 15:00:00
Description

ETERNITY – THE MOVIE

Director: Ian Thorpe; USA, 2014, 88 minutes

The 1980s return in full comedic force with “Eternity” — whether you’ve lived through the hilarious hair and regrettable fashion choices or not, get ready to laugh to the max for all of eternity. –Content Magazine   It’s 1985 all over again, and Todd and BJ (who works at BJ Maxx’s) discover the smooth white-boy soul they can make together as ‘Eternity,’ a hopelessly awkward but amazingly tuneful duo that looks strangely like Hall & Oates. The music is fantastic, and the playful are-they/aren’t-they banter that runs through the whole film is amusing and sharp. This movie owes a lot to “Napoleon Dynamite” (and even has Jon Gries in it). –AMFM Magazine

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-11-16 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.

Sex industry: Oppression or empowerment?
In 2013 a landmark ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada declared three laws regulating adult prostitution in Canada unconstitutional. In its decision the Court used the term “work” close to 50 times to describe the activity of people who provide sexual services. In the spring of 2014 the Government of Canada advanced Bill C-36, the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act. The preamble states, “Whereas the Parliament of Canada has grave concerns about the exploitation that is inherent in prostitution and the risks of violence posed to those who engage in it.” The explicit objective of the Bill is to eradicate the sex industry by “prohibit[ing] the purchase of sexual services” and encouraging those currently selling services to stop. So what about the sex industry: is it a site of oppression or empowerment? Findings from a recent study on the health and well-being of people involved in the Canadian industry support a polymorphous perspective, calling attention to a continuum of occupational arrangements, power relations, and worker experiences. The presentation concludes with a discussion of the implications of these results in light of Bill C-36.
EVERYONE WELCOME.

Theatre A Midsummer Night's Dream 2014-11-18 20:00:00
Description

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Fran Gebhard

Love and illusion collide in Shakespeare’s most poetic and magical play. Ignited by misplaced passions and political maneuvering, two pairs of lovers become entangled. Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius find themselves at the mercy of powerful forces (and their own passions) during a hot, New York summer night. Set in the underground culture of Greenwich Village in the mid 1970s – as punk rockers begin to usurp the flower-power children of the 1960s – Gebhard ‘s “Dream” is a fun edgy spin on Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy.

Lecture/Seminar Colloquium Series: RR Basic Skills (3): Statistical Modeling 2014-11-18 10:30:00
Description

RR Basic Skills (3): Statistical modeling
by Andrey Koval (University of Victoria)

This lecture introduces model fitting in R and discusses popular packages for estimating statistical models (stats, lme4, etc.).  Fitting of linear and mixed models of longitudinal data is demonstrated. The strategy of organizing and post-processing of the model output is discussed.

The colloquium series has been developed to highlight both substantive and methodological innovations and applications in aging research. This fall, our colloquium series emphasizes data management and statistical analysis using R software (http://www.r-project.org/) and statistical models for identifying trajectories and transitions in longitudinal studies and administrative health data. This fall series will be of general interest to researchers and students who wish to increase their expertise in statistical analysis using R.

This series will be hosted in partnership with the Department of Psychology, Education and Training Unit of Population Data BC, and the Island Health Research and Capacity Building Program.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-11-18 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 Geophilia, or The Love of Stone 2014-11-19 19:00:00
Description

Professor Cohen is giving a Lansdowne Lecture (sponsored by the Department of English). His topic is the liveliness of mineral matter in the Middle Ages. Stone has too long served as an unexamined metaphor for blunt factuality and inert givenness. Medieval writers knew that stones drop with fire from the sky, exert magnetic pull, cure diseased bodies, pulse with astral energies. Mineral life borders on the creaturely, posing a challenge to our overly disenchanted world. Studying the medieval use of petrifying tropes applied to people and to matter invites us to discern the queer life that looms beneath every still surface, and to compose less anthropocentric frames for understanding materiality. Thinking geologically brings the medieval and the modern into unaccustomed proximity, and reveals how, when imagining deep time, a shared vocabulary of cataclysm also betrays a desire for story.

Theatre A Midsummer Night's Dream 2014-11-19 20:00:00
Description

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Fran Gebhard

Love and illusion collide in Shakespeare’s most poetic and magical play. Ignited by misplaced passions and political maneuvering, two pairs of lovers become entangled. Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius find themselves at the mercy of powerful forces (and their own passions) during a hot, New York summer night. Set in the underground culture of Greenwich Village in the mid 1970s – as punk rockers begin to usurp the flower-power children of the 1960s – Gebhard ‘s “Dream” is a fun edgy spin on Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy.

Lecture/Seminar Visiting Artist Series presents GARY HILL 2014-11-19 20:00:00
Description

Gary Hill is an American artist who lives and works in Seattle, Washington. Often viewed as one of the foundational artists in video art, based on the single-channel work and video and sound-based installations of the 1970s and 1980s. Today he is best known for internationally exhibited installations and performance art, concerned as much with innovative language as with technology, and for continuing work in a broad range of media. His longtime work with intermedia explores an array of issues ranging from the physicality of language, synesthesia and perceptual conundrums to ontological space and viewer interactivity. The recipient of many awards, his influential work has been exhibited in most major contemporary art museums worldwide, including solo exhibitions at the Fondation Cartier pour lart contemporain, Paris; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Guggenheim Museum SoHo, New York; Museum fr Gegenwartskunst, Basel; Museu dArt Contemporani, Barcelona; and Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, among others. Commissioned projects include works for the Science Museum in London and the Seattle Central Public Library in Seattle, Washington, and an installation and performance work for the Coliseum and Temple of Venus and Rome in Italy. Hill has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Rockefeller and Guggenheim Foundations, and has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors, most notably the Leone dOro Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale (1995), a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Fellowship Award (1998), the Kurt-Schwitters-Preis (2000), and honorary doctorates from The Academy of Fine Arts Poznan, Poland (2005) and Cornish College of the Arts, Seattle, WA (2011). He is represented by Donald Young Gallery (Chicago), Gladstone Gallery (New York), in SITU/Fabienne Leclerc (Paris), and Galleria Lia Rumma (Milan).

Film "The Congress" starring Robin Wright 2014-11-19 19:00:00
Description

THE CONGRESS

Director: Ari Folman, Israel/Germany/Poland, 2014, 122 min.

“A HEADY HEAD-TRIP!” –Montreal Gazette

A new economy of "scanned actors" evolving in a parallel cartoon universe lies at the heart this dystopian spectacle melding live action with psychedelic animation, by Ari Folman (“Waltz with Bashir”). Based on Stanisław Lem's The Futurological Congress, Folman's kaleidoscopic satire of the entertainment business casts Robin Wright (“House of Cards”) as "Robin Wright," an aging actress and former Princess Bride whose career prospects seem bleak until a callous executive offers to purchase her cinematic identity for 20 years. Things then take a decidedly trippy turn, as the story jumps ahead 20 years. Paying a visit to the glossy animated realm of Abrahama, Wright processes the news that her avatar has become the industry's highest grossing digital star. Constantly blurring the lines between character and actor, live-action and animation, reality and fantasy, red pill and blue pill, “The Congress” is a visually dazzling and riveting meditation on corporate greed. --exclaim.ca

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-11-19 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.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - The Greater Cosmology 2014-11-20 16:30:00
Description

Should we attempt to synthesize scientific, philosophical, and religious concepts into a greater cosmology? The Belgian astronomer Georges Lemaître (1894 -1966) was one of the founders of what has become known as Big-Bang cosmology. He was also a Roman Catholic priest. In a lecture delivered in 1958, he stated that theoretical cosmology is “entirely outside any metaphysical or religious question.” Alan Batten will investigate how far modern cosmologists have kept their science separate from their philosophical and religious (or irreligious) views and, indeed, whether it is even possible for them to do so.

 

Alan H. Batten worked at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory in Victoria for over half a century. He also spent time at the Vatican Observatory in Castelgandolfo, Italy, the Instituto de Astronomia y Fisica del Espacio in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. From 1985 to 1991, he served as a Vice-President of the International Astronomical Union and, in the following decade, visited astronomers in developing countries on behalf of the Union. Batten was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1977. His most recent book, Our Enigmatic Universe: One Astronomer’s Reflections on the Human Condition, was published in 2011.

Other Book Launch--The Columbia River Treaty: A Primer 2014-11-20 15:30:00
Description

On November 20th, authors and water experts Robert Sandford, Deborah Harford, and Jon O’Riordan will be in Victoria for the launch of their new book "The Columbia River Treaty: A Primer," published by Rocky Mountain Books.

The panellists will discuss the complex nature of this international water agreement between Canada and the United States, and how its impending update will impact communities, landscapes, industry, and water supplies between the two countries for many years to come. They will also explore new views related to the environment, equity, social justice, the relevance of Indigenous traditional and local knowledge, and the economic and physical effects of a changing climate. By addressing these factors, a renewed Columbia River Treaty might prove a model for outstanding transboundary water agreements around the world.

Lecture/Seminar The City Talks: Fantasy Islands: Environmental Justice in China and Beyond 2014-11-20 19:30:00
Description

Dr Julie Sze’s research probes Chinese, European, and American eco-desire and eco-technological dreams, and examines the solutions they offer to environmental degradation in this age of global economic change. She charts how climate change discussions align with US fears of China's ascendancy and the related demise of the American Century, and she considers the motives of financial and political capital for eco-city and ecological development supported by elite power structures in the UK and China. Fantasy Islands shows how ineffectual these efforts are while challenging us to see what a true eco-city would be.

Lecture/Seminar Brown Bag: Betsy Hagestedt - "Speak for Yourself! South American Indigenous Self-Representation Online and the Potential for Critical Discourse Analysis" 2014-11-20 12:00:00
Description

The Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory at the University of Victoria (http://etcl.uvic.ca/) invites you to attend the third meeting of the 2014-15 Brown Bag Speaker Series. This is a series of informal lunchtime seminars for faculty and graduate students in the Faculty of Humanities and across the university to discuss issues in digital literacy, digital humanities, and the changing face of research, scholarship, and teaching in our increasingly digital world. For an hour once per month, we meet to hear from an invited speaker, share ideas, and build knowledge.

On Thursday 20th November, from 12 until 1 p.m., Betsy Hagestedt (PhD Candidate in the Anthropology Department) will be presenting a talk entitled, “Speak for Yourself! South American Indigenous Self-Representation Online and the Potential for Critical Discourse Analysis.” Details are below. Please share this announcement with anyone who might be interested in attending.

Abstract: With growing access to Web 2.0 technology around the world, there has been a dramatic shift towards self-representation of minority political organizations and away from externally imposed media discourses. Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) can be modified to suit these new situations, and can be used to evaluate grassroots representation within a national political framework. This paper will draw on preliminary research completed in 2010 comparing the language used on the websites of three different regional and national indigenous organizations in South America. Each of these organizations is situated within a particular socio-political context, and their representational choices demonstrate a wide range of approaches in confronting political inequality. Drawing on these organizations as examples it becomes possible to ask a series of questions: Does direct self-representation provide a greater opportunity to confront inequality than externally mediated representation? What is the aim of online representation and who is the intended audience? How does the negotiation of online identity by these organizations reflect or differ from non-virtual identity? In beginning to address these questions, this paper will examine the abstract changes that the virtual has begun to allow.

Bio: Betsy Hagestedt is a PhD student within the Anthropology Department of the University of Victoria. She holds an MA in Research Methods of Anthropology from Durham University in England, and a BA in Anthropology and Spanish from the University of Oregon. Her diverse research interests are largely focused on human interaction within digital environments and with new technologies, and examine the creation of online communities, social network analysis, representation and representational politics, the materiality and agency of digital objects, and the way all of these interact with human cultures outside of digital environments.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-11-20 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.

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.

Theatre A Midsummer Night's Dream 2014-11-20 20:00:00
Description

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Fran Gebhard

Love and illusion collide in Shakespeare’s most poetic and magical play. Ignited by misplaced passions and political maneuvering, two pairs of lovers become entangled. Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius find themselves at the mercy of powerful forces (and their own passions) during a hot, New York summer night. Set in the underground culture of Greenwich Village in the mid 1970s – as punk rockers begin to usurp the flower-power children of the 1960s – Gebhard ‘s “Dream” is a fun edgy spin on Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy.

Lecture/Seminar Transatlantic Convergence? Multiculturalism and Immigrant Integration in Canada and Europe 2014-11-20 18:00:00
Description

The Centre for Global Studies with generous support from the European Union Centre of Excellence (EUCE) at UVic, is pleased to present a seminar with Dr. Keith Banting (Queen's Research Chair in Public Policy / professor in the School of Policy Studies and the Dept. of Political Studies at Queen's University in Canada.) on “Transatlantic Convergence? Multiculturalism and Immigrant Integration in Canada and Europe.”

Dr. Banting will look at how, at first glance, Canada and Europe seem to be diverging dramatically in their approach to immigrant integration. While support for a multicultural approach still seems strong in Canada, a powerful backlash pervades European debates. Beneath the political rhetoric, however, there are important elements of convergence in integration policies governments have put in place on the two sides of the Atlantic.

In addition to Dr. Banting’s presentation, we are pleased to welcome 2 respondents who will lead us into a broader discussion:

Avigail Eisenberg (professor and chair of UVic’s Political Science Dept.)

Jean McRae the head executive director of the Inter-Cultural Association (ICA) of Greater Victoria

Lecture/Seminar Eco-urban Neighbourhoods and the Prospect of Sustainability Transformations 2014-11-21 14:45:00
Description

Eco-urban Neighbourhoods and the Prospect of Sustainability Transformations

Meg Holden
Associate Professor, Urban Studies, Simon Fraser University

Neighbourhood scale sustainability districts are coming to serve a growing role in urban sustainability strategies.  In the past decade, ecodistricts, écoquartiers, eco-cities, zero/low-carbon/carbon-positive cities, ecopolises, One Planet Communities, and solar cities have become frames – sometimes the dominant frame – used to justify and orient the construction of new pieces of city in a growing range of countries worldwide.  Eco-urban developments are currently part of a movement toward green global cosmopolitanism that nonetheless expresses itself in fragmented and divergent ways in different world regions.  That is, eco-urban developments are being pursued, increasingly, based on standardized models and forms that are coming to redefine relevant and meaningful sustainability efforts in specific economic, political, social, and design-based terms.  In so doing, they are changing the solution set we associate with sustainable development, and even the characterization of the problem of unsustainability, at the same time as they change the face of our cities.  The eco-urbanism expressed in these new pieces of city is no longer so much a critique of capitalist values, globalization, and urbanization.  Instead, it is offered as a solution to crises in capitalism, environmental quality, and social cohesion.  The implications for the politics of transformation associated with sustainable development are profound.

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.

THE F WORD

Based on a play by T.J. Dawe & Michael Rinaldi

Director: Mike Dowse; Canada, 2014, 98 min; PG  Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Zoey Kazan, Megan Park, Adam Driver, Rafe Spall

“IRRESISIBLE!” –Rolling Stone

‘WONDERFUL!” –New York Magazine

“A SPARKLING SCREWBALL HIGHBALL.” –Salon

Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) is a hopeless romantic. He meets animator Chantry (Zoe Kazan) – who, unfortunately, is already in a relationship. Ignoring their attraction, the pair decide to remain friends, which turns out to be far more difficult than they imagined. It might seem odd that Mike Dowse (“Goon,” “FUBAR”) could make the year’s freshest and most winning romantic comedy: sensitive, contemporary, and most importantly very, very funny. –Toronto International

Theatre A Midsummer Night's Dream 2014-11-21 20:00:00
Description

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Fran Gebhard

Love and illusion collide in Shakespeare’s most poetic and magical play. Ignited by misplaced passions and political maneuvering, two pairs of lovers become entangled. Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius find themselves at the mercy of powerful forces (and their own passions) during a hot, New York summer night. Set in the underground culture of Greenwich Village in the mid 1970s – as punk rockers begin to usurp the flower-power children of the 1960s – Gebhard ‘s “Dream” is a fun edgy spin on Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy.

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-11-22 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.

Help solve the History Mystery!

Film "THE F WORD" 2014-11-22 15:00:00
Description

THE F WORD

Based on a play by T.J. Dawe & Michael Rinaldi

Director: Mike Dowse; Canada, 2014, 98 min; PG  Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Zoey Kazan, Megan Park, Adam Driver, Rafe Spall

“IRRESISIBLE!” –Rolling Stone

‘WONDERFUL!” –New York Magazine

“A SPARKLING SCREWBALL HIGHBALL.” –Salon

Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) is a hopeless romantic. He meets animator Chantry (Zoe Kazan) – who, unfortunately, is already in a relationship. Ignoring their attraction, the pair decide to remain friends, which turns out to be far more difficult than they imagined. It might seem odd that Mike Dowse (“Goon,” “FUBAR”) could make the year’s freshest and most winning romantic comedy: sensitive, contemporary, and most importantly very, very funny. –Toronto International
