Film Latin American & Spanish Film Week: TRUMAN (Spain, 2015 - 108 min.) 2016-09-25 19:00:00
Description

TRUMAN; by Cesc Gay (Spain, 2015 - 108 min.)

When Julián receives an unexpected visit from his childhood friend Tomás, the encounter is bittersweet. This reunion, their first meeting in many years, will also be their last. Diagnosed with cancer, Julián has decided to focus on putting his affairs in order: distributing his possessions, finalizing his funeral arrangements, and finding a home for his beloved dog, Truman. It´s this final task that is causing him the greatest heartbreak. With the collaboration of acting greats Argentine Ricardo Darín and Spanish Javier Cámara, Gay brings humour and sensitivity to this personal story, creating a singular reflection on friendship and acceptance at the end of life.

The 7th Latin American and Spanish Film Week is organized by the Hispanic Film Society of Victoria. All films with English subtitles.

Lecture/Seminar Twelfth-Century Transformations 2016-09-25 09:30:00
Description

DR. LAURA ASHE
Worcester College, University of Oxford
 
Twelfth-Century Transformations
 
Sunday, 25 September | 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Harry Hickman Building, Room 105
 
Presented by the Department of English and the Faculty of Humanities
 
Between the mid-eleventh and the late twelfth centuries, the ways in which people perceived, understood, and explored their places in the world were drastically and irreversibly changed. These changes have long been recognized, and scholars in various fields have described their effects on society and culture. The transformations of this period include the appearance and rise of what is now known as affective piety, religious experience characterized by extreme emotional engagement; the corresponding change in theological focus from God the Father to the suffering, loving Christ; the theological and psychological turn to interiority, and a newly confessional sense of selfhood; the appearance of new secular ideologies of chivalry, of
love, of individuality, and cultural and social elitism; finally, the development of literary fiction. It is my argument that these are all parts of a whole, and that their origins can be traced and explained in terms of one another.
 
Drawing on the research for my forthcoming book, the Oxford English Literary History vol. 1: 1000-1350, this lecture will unprecedentedly seek to explain the mechanisms of this vast, Europe-wide transformation.
 
Additional Event
 
Monday, 26 September | 3:00-5:00 p.m. | David Strong Building, Room C108
 
Dr. Ashe will host a seminar for interested faculty and students of all levels, discussing medieval notions of courts and courtesy, chivalry, cultural capital, and real economic value. A short advance reading will be available. Please inquire at the Department of English for more details, or contact Dr. Adrienne Williams Boyarin: aboyarin@uvic.ca.
 
UVic’s Public Lectures Series features accomplished individuals from a vast array of
academic and research endeavours. As host of this lecture series, UVic continues its
commitment to making a vital impact on people, places and the planet.

Film LO AND BEHOLD: Reveries of the Connected World 2016-09-26 21:00:00
Description

LO AND BEHOLD: Reveries of the Connected World

Director: Werner Herzog, USA, 2016, 98 minutes

“HERZOG WEAVES A FANTASTICAL TALE.” –The Guardian

Werner Herzog’s documentary takes a curious, awe-struck, and terrified look at the origins and future of the web and the interconnected reality it’s begat. It’s a masterful inquiry into technological evolution. To the director, that development has spawned innovation that few science fiction writers ever dreamed of and yet it’s also created a potential tomorrow fraught with harrowing emotional, social, moral, and philosophical dilemmas apt to give a rational person (or a genius like Elon Musk) ceaseless nightmares. –The Playlist

“YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THE INTERNET DISCUSSED LIKE THIS.” –indieWire

For those looking for a ride through our modern technological world, or indeed a preview of what is to come, this is it.”The Guardian

Lecture/Seminar Glass Sponges 2016-09-26 19:30:00
Description

MARINE NIGHT - Victoria Natural History Society

Glass sponges—the problems and rewards of spending time with these fascinating ancestral animals. 

Dr. Henry Reiswig has studied glass sponges for 40 years. Glass sponges or Hexactinellida, one of four classes of the phylum Porifera, consist of about 625 known living species characterized by a skeleton of siliceous spicules with triaxial symmetry. They have been around since Precambrian times and are arguably the first group of animals to have evolved. They have had their periods of geological importance during the Mesozoic where they built impressive, expansive deep-sea reefs and continue to form living reefs along the west coast of North America.  Forty years ago he says there was little interest in this group of sponges. Times have indeed changed.

Lecture/Seminar Burning the Midnight Oil: Archaeological Experiments with Viking lamps 2016-09-26 11:30:00
Description

GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM
DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

Burning the Midnight Oil: Archaeological Experiments with Viking lamps
Dr. Erin McGuire
Assistant Teaching Professor, Anthropology Department, UVic

Monday, September 26th, 2016
11:30 am – 12:50 pm
Cornett Building, Room A229

The Viking Age falls at the tail end of what was once called the Dark Ages of Medieval Europe. The image that we have of Viking houses is of smoke-filled, damp spaces, crowded with people and shrouded in gloom. However, among the house assemblages from across the Viking world, we find evidence of lamps, usually made from stone, ceramic, or metal. Trace evidence of fuels and wick materials, combined with ethnographic and historical sources, give hints as to how the lamps functioned, but as yet, there has been limited research on Viking lamps in particular. Through the creation and analysis of an experimental Viking lamp, this talk provides a fresh look at illumination in Viking-Age houses. The research presented forms the beginning stages of a longer project; here the efficacy of various wick forms is analysed, taking into consideration the quantity and quality of both light and heat produced by single lamp. While initial tests were conducted in a modern setting, subsequent testing took place in a reconstructed Viking-Age pit house in southern Washington.

EVERYONE WELCOME.

Other Wisdom Jesus Learning Circle 2016-09-27 10:30
Description

Come join this discussion circle to explore the
teaching of Jesus of Nazareth, the spiritual master who stands at the fountainhead of western spirituality.

This is NOT a gathering designed to re-iterate a stereo-typed image of Jesus.  Rather, we will focus on Jesus as a teacher of wisdom, of the perennial philosophy that is designed to transform consciousness from ego-centered awareness to the experience of the non-dual unity and inter-connectedness of all reality.  Through various spiritual practices, we will explore whether this wisdom teaching is of any use to us: Does it lead to happiness? Does it help me figure my life s purpose? Does it lead to compassion? Does it lead to higher consciousness? Does it awaken me to mindfulness of the sacred reality of the cosmos?

We will discuss the insights offered by Cynthia Bourgeault, Contemplative Teacher, through video presentations, readings from her books, and instructions for hands-on contemplative practices.  You will learn contemplative ways of being in the world, drawing deeply upon the radical wisdom of the spirituality of Jesus.

Description

 9th Annual Vikes Championship Breakfast event to be held on September 27, 2016 at 7:00am in the CARSA Performance Gym.

By purchasing a ticket, table or combination thereof, you are helping to ensure that our Vikes Athletics program will continue to achieve at the highest level amongst Canadian universities by providing much needed financial support to our deserving student-athletes and equipping our coaching staff with the scholarship resources to recruit the next generation of high performing Vikes.  In the highly competitive recruiting world, scholarships remain a significant factor for prospective student-athletes in choosing their post-secondary destinations and the Vikes Championship Breakfast has assisted us greatly in remaining a leading post-secondary athletic program.

Once again, the University of Victoria has agreed to match the first $200,000 raised in support of the Vikes Championship Breakfast.  To date, through the generous contributions of our supporters and the UVic match, we have raised just over $3.3 million.  I can assure you that this support has made a major impact on our student-athletes realizing competitive and academic success while also ensuring a strong commitment to our community. 

We are pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Ms. Nancy Mollenhauer, a two-time Olympian with the Canadian women’s field hockey team and a member of the Field Hockey Canada Hall of Fame.  Mollenhauer was a two-time CIAU Athlete of the Year during her time with the Vikettes.

Music Galiano Ensemble of Victoria 2016-09-28 20:00:00
Description

You are warmly invited to join the Galiano Ensemble of Victoria for the opening concert of their 17th season!  In this tribute to German and Austrian music, the Galiano Ensemble is presenting an assortment of delightful pieces from four composers.

Felix Mendelssohn was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor born in 1809.  Considered by many to be the only musical prodigy of the 19th century who could rival Mozart in stature, String Sinfonia No.4 was written when Mendelssohn was only 12 years old!  Mendelssohn was strongly influenced by the music of J.S. Bach and his later works were notable for their energy, ebullience and drama.  He lived only until the age of 38.

Hans Gál was born near Vienna in 1890 and became a noted composer, music teacher and author.  His musical style came from the Austro-German tradition, particularly 18th century Viennese composers, but he developed his own wonderful style without regard to prevailing fashions.  After fleeing to London in 1938 because of his Jewish heritage, he eventually settled in Scotland and remained there for the rest of his life.  Interest in his large volume of works has revived since his death in 1987.

Paul Hindemith, a German violist, violinist, teacher and conductor born in 1895, is thought to have been one of the most important composers of his generation.  He is also said by some to be the most overlooked composer of the 20th century.  His focus shifted from chamber music such as Five Pieces for Strings in the 1930s to symphonies and operas.  His relationship to the Nazis was complicated by the fact his wife was partly Jewish and the controversy surrounding his work led him to emigrate to Switzerland in 1938 and then to the US in 1940.  He eventually returned to Switzerland in 1953 and lived for another 10 years.

Carl Reinecke was a German teacher, conductor and pianist as well as a prolific composer.  In 1860, Reinecke was appointed director of the Gewandhaus Orchestra concerts in Leipzig, and professor of composition at the Conservatorium, a post that was previously held my Mendelssohn. He died in 1910 at the age of 85.

Conductor Yariv Aloni and the orchestra promise an entertaining evening of wonderful chamber music so be sure to put this in your calendar!

Film LO AND BEHOLD: Reveries of the Connected World 2016-09-28 21:00:00
Description

LO AND BEHOLD: Reveries of the Connected World

Director: Werner Herzog, USA, 2016, 98 minutes

“HERZOG WEAVES A FANTASTICAL TALE.” –The Guardian

Werner Herzog’s documentary takes a curious, awe-struck, and terrified look at the origins and future of the web and the interconnected reality it’s begat. It’s a masterful inquiry into technological evolution. To the director, that development has spawned innovation that few science fiction writers ever dreamed of and yet it’s also created a potential tomorrow fraught with harrowing emotional, social, moral, and philosophical dilemmas apt to give a rational person (or a genius like Elon Musk) ceaseless nightmares. –The Playlist

“YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THE INTERNET DISCUSSED LIKE THIS.” –indieWire

For those looking for a ride through our modern technological world, or indeed a preview of what is to come, this is it.”The Guardian

Lecture/Seminar The Bald Eagle: from Victoria in 1953 to Today 2016-09-28 19:30:00
Description

BIRDERS’ NIGHT - Victoria Natural History Society

Few species have responded to human attention as have the bald eagles. When David Hancock started watching eagles in the early 1950s in and around Victoria they were rare, distrustful and darn right hard to find. Today some people consider them overabundant in specific locations. That story of change is really due to the change in human attitudes—we have adapted to eagles and they have accepted us. David’s 65 years of following this mutual befriending is the story of his illustrated talk. Bring your favorite eagle story.

Film HADWIN'S JUDGEMENT 2016-09-29 19:00:00
Description

HADWIN’S JUDGEMENT

(Director: Sasha Snow, Canada, 2015, 87 min) 

Special Event: Students: $9. Others: $15. 

Cinecenta tickets/passes not valid

A benefit screening for the Ancient Forest Alliance www.AncientForestAlliance.org - a conservation organization working to protect BC's old-growth forests and to ensure a sustainable second-growth forest industry.

Q and A afterwards with:

John Vaillant, award-winning author of The Golden Spruce

Elizabeth Yake, co-producer of Hadwin's Judgement

Ken Wu and TJ Watt, founders of the Ancient Forest Alliance

HADWIN’S JUDGEMENT is a spellbinding and visually stunning account of environmentalism, obsession, and myth set in the Pacific Northwest. It chronicles one man’s resolute struggle to reconcile what he regarded as an intolerable and conspiratorial affront – not just to the land, but to humanity as well. Based on John Vaillant’s award-winning book ‘The Golden Spruce,’ the film covers the events that led up to the infamous destruction of an extraordinary 300-year-old tree held sacred by the indigenous Haida nation of Haida Gwaii, British Columbia.

Grant Hadwin, a logging engineer and formidable survivalist, lived and worked happily for many years in BC’s remote and ancient forests. But witnessing the devastation wrought by clear-cutting finally drove him to commit what some would say was an extraordinary and perverse act, one that ran contrary to all he had come to value.

A compelling hybrid of drama and documentary, HADWIN’S JUDGEMENT interweaves speculation, myth and reality to explore the possible motives for Hadwin’s unprecedented crime and the consequences of his actions. The film charts his emotional crusade against the destruction of the world’s last great temperate rainforest, a crusade that ends tragically with a mystery – and a prophetic warning – that seal Hadwin’s fate as both madman an visionary.

“Gorgeously photographed, compulsively watchable, and deeply sympathetic.” --The Globe & Mail

Lecture/Seminar Public Lecture - HUGH MORRIS LECTURE 2016-09-29 18:30:00
Description

Francis Edward Su, Benediktsson-Karwa Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College and President of the American Mathematical Association will be speaking on Thursday, September 29th at 6:30 pm at the University of Victoria, Bob Wright Centre, room B150 .

Voting in Agreeable Societies

When does a majority exist? How does the geometry of the political spectrum influence the outcome? What does mathematics have to say about how people behave? When mathematical objects have a social interpretation, the associated results have social applications.  We will show how some classical mathematics about the geometry of sets and their intersections can be used to model people's preferences and understand voting in "agreeable" societies.  This talk also features research with undergraduates.

The UVic community and members of the Greater Victoria public are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Lecture/Seminar HIWEST: Forum & Panel Discussion 2016-09-30 18:30:00
Description

HIWEST 

(pronounced "hee-west")

Forum & Panel Discussion

Creation, Honouring & Preservation of Pacific Northwest Indigenous Poles / Monumental Wood Carving

Creation, Honouring & Preservation of Pacific Northwest Indigenous Poles / Monumental Wood Carving is this year’s theme for the HIWEST (pronounced "hee-west"), First Nations Artist Forum on Friday, September 30th, 2016 from 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at the University of Victoria Legacy Gallery Downtown, 630 Yates Street.

Poles and other monumental wood carving have been commissioned and installed throughout our region in recent decades, eliciting huge public interest and appetite to learn more about the traditions, practices and meanings. Further, the stewards of the poles struggle to best and most respectfully commission, preserve and honour these monuments that are rife with narrative and cultural significance.  Join us for an event that will help all of us delve deeper into the understanding, honouring, and caring for the poles/monumental wood carving that are so rich with cultural significance.

Join us for a panel discussion, moderated by Dr. Andrea Walsh, Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology at the University of Victoria.

The artist panel will include Doug LaFortune, Lou-ann Neel, Rande Cook and Hjalmer Wenstob.

Featuring a brief presentation on the preservation of poles and monumental carvings by Heidi Swierenga, Senior Conservator at the Museum of Anthropology, University of British Columbia.

 

Created in partnership with the University of Victoria Legacy Art Galleries & the City of Victoria

Lecture/Seminar Disturbance and Recovery of Canada's Forests: Monitoring with satellite data 2016-09-30 14:45:00
Description

Mike Wulder
Senior Research Scientist, Canadian Forest Service

Canada has recreated the recent history of its forest disturbance and related recovery using Landsat data; a history that would otherwise not be possible to recreate in a manner that is spatially explicit and at a spatial resolution of relevance for forest management, habitat and ecosystem service assessments.  National governments need to produce information products with confidence to aid in national reporting, to inform policy, and to offer scientific insights.  These valuable datasets and information outcomes allowed for map production and trend analysis of land dynamics, but were of a spatial resolution that was suboptimal for supporting management, reporting, and policy development.  With the 2008 opening of the U.S. Geological Survey Landsat archive, Canada got the best of both worlds: national data coverage (~1 billion hectares) at a spatial resolution of 30 m over a 3 decade period.  Implementing the Composite2Change (C2C) approach, outputs include annual gap-free image composite products representing 1984 to 2012 which are now being used to characterize change, land cover, and forest structure.  The time series aspect has enabled refined production of land cover and forest structure based upon expectations of transitions (land cover) and successional processes.

Description

Purchasers will be contacted by the UVic Ticket Centre for a full refund or call 250-721-8480.

 

 

Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. He is now selling out clubs across the nation and has appeared on over 100 episodes of “Chelsea Lately.” His infectious, explosive energy on stage, insightful jokes, and family‐inspired humor cross all boundaries. Jo, who was raised in Tacoma, WA, credits his mother for his comedic and acting talents. She encouraged him to participate in school talent shows and to hold im- promptu performances for his family and friends. This loving support led to performances at a Las Vegas coffee house, and inspired a move to Los Angeles. In 2005, Jo had the “opportunity of a lifetime” with a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He became one of a select few ever to receive a standing ovation.

Jo Koy pulls inspiration from his family and specifically his son. He has had two Comedy Central specials “Don’t Make Him Angry” and “Lights Out.” Jo has appeared on VH1, World's Funniest Fails, The Joy Behar Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly and Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza. Jo is a firm believer in service and giving back to the community and is currently working with The Lupus Foundation to bring awareness to this cause. Jo currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

Film HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE 2016-09-30 15:00:00
Description

Back by popular demand!

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE

Director: Taika Waititi; New Zealand, 2016, 101 minutes; PG

“A MUST-SEE FILM!” –Toronto Star

A sullen boy bouncing around foster care. A curmudgeonly widower with no interest in children. Those may sound like the ingredients for a saccharine drama, but in writer-director Taika Waititi’s hands, they’re elements to concoct a subversive, wildly entertaining comedy about the power of misfits and the strength of good humour. It seems like the story might devolve into sentimentality as Ricky (Julian Dennison) struggles to survive in the New Zealand bush with his caretaker Hec (Sam Neill, giving a career-best perforfmance). Instead, Waititi (who’s also responsible for the best comedy of 2015, What We Do in the Shadows) executes a series of deft U-turns, twisting the tale into 101 minutes of pure comic joy. –The Globe and Mail

 “WARMLY FUNNY AND DEEPLY DELIGHTFUL!” --Screen International

“DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO SEE IT!” –Arizona Republic

"Watching this lovely little lark from New Zealand, you may feel like ahappy camper on a twisty trail blazed by a cockeyed comic prodigy." --Wall Street Journal

Lecture/Seminar By That Fatal Fire: Manuscripts in the Aftermath of Destruction 2016-10-01 16:30:00
Description

In this lavishly illustrated talk, Dr. Siân Echard (University of British Columbia) will explore the role that copies of ancient books, from early engravings to modern digital facsimiles, play in our interactions with the medieval past. Books can be remarkably enduring: medievalists can often expect to sit down with manuscripts closely related, in time and space, to a medieval text’s origin. But books are also subject to all manner of threat. Fire, decay, and deliberate destruction take their toll, and sometimes, all that survives of a medieval text is a damaged original, or a later copy.
