Film "Keep On Keepin' On" 2015-02-01 15:00:00
Description

KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON

Director: Alan Hicks; USA, 2014, 84 minutes

TENDER AND JOYOUS!” –The Hollywood Reporter

Early in this affecting documentary, the great jazz trumpeter Clark Terry is asked who had gifted him his snazzy shoes. It was Duke Ellington, no less. Terry rubbed shoulders with the giants, and he himself inspired the likes of Miles Davis and Quincy Jones. This is an uplifting story about the shorthand language of music and cross-generational mentoring, specifically as it relates to the young, blind and gifted pianist Justin Kauflin and his ailing coach and forward-paying friend, Terry. No faces are slapped – looking at you, Whiplash – in this soulful story of bebop benevolence. Terry produced some of the happiest sounds in the history of jazz; Keep on Keepin’ On keeps the smiles coming. --The Globe and Mail

Other Centering Prayer Workshop 2015-02-01 13:30:00
Description

Sunday, February 1
1:30 – 5:00 pm
UVic Interfaith Chapel

Centering Meditation is a form of prayer in the Christian contemplative tradition that trains the heart, mind and soul to open to Sacred Presence.  Through silence and an inner gesture of letting go, we learn to experience the Sacred Presence beyond words, emotions and thoughts, and to release our attachment to egoic concerns.  The practice cultivates a deep relationship with sacred reality, and opens us to compassion and inner peace.

This workshop is based on the teaching of Thomas Keating and Cynthia Bourgeault.

Facilitators:
Henri Lock, United Chaplain, Multifaith Services
Miranda Harvey, Contemplative Society

Offered in association with The Contemplative Society

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.

Film "DR. STRAGELOVE: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" 2015-02-02 17:00:00
Description

DR. STRANGELOVE:

Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

(Stanley Kubrick, UK, 1963, 94 min)    

Perhaps Kubrick’s most perfectly realised film, because his cynical vision of technology and human stupidity is wedded with comedy, in this case Terry Southern’s sparkling script in which the world comes to an end thanks to a mad US general’s paranoia about women and commies. The result is scary, hilarious and nightmarishly beautiful. --Time Out    “Remains deliciously, wonderfully funny today.” --Edmonton Journal

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecture - Women's Love Songs 2015-02-02 16:30:00
Description

In 13th Century Southern France, women troubadours replied in their love songs to their male counterparts with their own view of courtly love or "fin amor". In Belgium, the mystic Hadewijch of Antwerp transposed profane eroticism in her poetry for conveying the expression of her longing to God and the intimate relationship between soul and God.

Prof Madeleine Jeay, Professor Emerita, McMaster University

A specialist of medieval literature, Madeleine Jeay is internationally renowned for her studies on women, women's writings, authorship, or manuscripts. The initiator of several major databases and softwares, the writer of popular documentaries on Mystic Women, she has authored many books and innumerable papers on medieval literature and cultures. She embodies the liveliness of medieval programs and research projects in Canada. Linking questions and genres often presented in separate context, Madeleine Jeay's talk will shed a new light on Women Studies, and Religious Studies, as well as on Medieval Studies.

Lecture/Seminar Film / Lunch and Learn: Kiri's Piano 2015-02-02 12:30:00
Description

Landscapes of Injustice and the Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives present the BC premiere of France Benoit’s heart wrenching short film, Kiri’s Piano (trailer available online). 

Inspired by Canadian folk singer James Keelaghan’s 1988 song of the same name, the film chronicles one woman’s sacrifice in the face of rampant prejudice tearing her Japanese-Canadian family apart. Kiri’s once joyful piano music turns bitter when forced relocation and internment take away her husband, her home, and her family’s simple fishing life along the BC coast.

Landscapes of Injustice is a 7-year research project that focuses on the dispossession of the property owned by Japanese Canadians during World War II. The project is funded by a Partnership Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and by contributions from 13 partner institutions.

Join us for Japanese snacks and refreshments and for a look into one of Canada’s darkest moments.

Director France Benoit will attend and share insights on the film and her motivations to find the family that inspired her.

Multifaith Services Centre
Rm 143 Campus Services Building

Join us for an inspiring discussion circle exploring the spacious, bold and remarkably relevant Wisdom cosmology that lies at the base of all the great world religions.

Although the reference point is Christian, we will explore Buddhist, Jewish, Sufi and Hindu spiritual perspectives that speak to the same transformation of consciousness.

It holds the potential of breaking down the barriers between science and spirituality, provide a compelling consideration of our global ecological responsibility, and put together the pieces for our deep longing for meaning and connection.

Film "LEVIATHAN" 2015-02-03 18:45:00
Description

LEVIATHAN

Director: Andrey Zvyagintsev

Russia, 2014, 140 min; Russian with subtitles.

“FIVE STARS! A NEW RUSSIAN MASTERPIECE!”The Guardian

“Takes aim against the corrupt, corrosive regime of Vladimir Putin.”The Hollywood Reporter

FIVE STARS! A blue-collar man (Aleksey Serebryakov) has a home that stands proudly on Russia's Barents Sea coastline, a monument to a life of hard work. But a corrupt local politico wants it for himself. Andrey Zvyagintsev’s modern parable of a man crushed beneath the wheels of the Russian state is a spellbinding.

As in his haunting debut, “The Return,” long takes languidly capture the solemn beauty of the Russian landscape, but it’s the slow crumpling of protagonist Nikolai (Aleksey Serebryakov), as church, government and judiciary gang up to rob him of his most prized possession, that will leave a longer, angrier impression. Not appearing on Putin’s DVD shelf anytime soon. –Empire

“If there was ever any doubt as to Zvyagintsev's position as one of world cinema's foremost auteurs, it's put to rest here. His filmmaking has always been superb, but he's never taken on the state of his nation in the way he does here.”The Playlist

Come for the first 30-40 minutes of instruction and stay as long as you like to work on your assignments and ask questions, or just come for the question/drop-in period from around 1:45 until 3:00 and have any grammar-related questions answered by an expert.

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2015-02-03 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.

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes

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

This is the first part of an on-going series of exhibitions over the next few years featuring the artists who work as Sessional Instructors in the UVic Visual Arts department.

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

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.

Alumni Author David Day: Decoding Wonderland 2015-02-05 19:00:00
Description

Enticingly, all the characters in Wonderland are revealed as real Victorians, making the book a time capsule of Oxford when it was the centre of an historic point in human intellectual history. Wonderland is a Who’s Who of Oxford at the height of its power and influence. Scheduled for release in October 2015, Day’s book celebrates the 150th anniversary of the publication of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’.

Presented in partnership with the Royal BC Museum, Greater Victoria Public Libraries and the University of Victoria Libraries.

Film "LEVIATHAN" 2015-02-05 18:45:00
Description

LEVIATHAN

Director: Andrey Zvyagintsev

Russia, 2014, 140 min; Russian with subtitles.

“FIVE STARS! A NEW RUSSIAN MASTERPIECE!”The Guardian

“Takes aim against the corrupt, corrosive regime of Vladimir Putin.”The Hollywood Reporter

FIVE STARS! A blue-collar man (Aleksey Serebryakov) has a home that stands proudly on Russia's Barents Sea coastline, a monument to a life of hard work. But a corrupt local politico wants it for himself. Andrey Zvyagintsev’s modern parable of a man crushed beneath the wheels of the Russian state is a spellbinding.

As in his haunting debut, “The Return,” long takes languidly capture the solemn beauty of the Russian landscape, but it’s the slow crumpling of protagonist Nikolai (Aleksey Serebryakov), as church, government and judiciary gang up to rob him of his most prized possession, that will leave a longer, angrier impression. Not appearing on Putin’s DVD shelf anytime soon. –Empire

“If there was ever any doubt as to Zvyagintsev's position as one of world cinema's foremost auteurs, it's put to rest here. His filmmaking has always been superb, but he's never taken on the state of his nation in the way he does here.”The Playlist

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Like Nailing Jell-O to a Wall? Understanding Spiritual but not Religious Care in Nursing and Chaplaincy 2015-02-05 16:30:00
Description

How do health and spiritual care providers assess the worldview, significant metaphors, and sacred symbols of those who describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious”? This presentation explores the implications of a seismic shift in the religious landscape and what it means for treating spiritual but not religious patients or clients whether at the end of life, in prison, or in the hospital. What frameworks are available and how well do they encompass the scope of contemporary spiritual but not religious theology? After reflecting on these critical questions, Dr. Siobhan Chandler will offer some practical suggestions for integrating new models of care, including how to assess a patient or client’s spiritual (but not religious) landscape, and how to discern their hidden sources of strength and hope in the context of crisis and change.

Dr. Siobhan Chandler’s doctoral research (PhD 2011) examined the social implications of the growing tendency of westerners to be spiritual outside formal religious traditions. Her current research focuses on classifying the spiritual but not religious phenomenon, and implications for businesses and health care.

Description

The HSD Indigenous Student Support Centre, the Office of Indigenous Affairs, and the Indigenous Alumni Chapter are pleased to welcome UVic alumna Dr. Sarah Hunt to campus for this lecture, followed by a reception.

Abstract: This lecture will foster a reimagining of law and of violence in light of ongoing dynamics of Indigenous political and cultural resurgence, at once centering on Indigenous peoples' agency while grappling with the naturalized violence of neocolonial relations.

Sarah Hunt (PhD) is a Kwakwaka'wakw scholar whose work investigates questions of law, violence, and power through the everyday geographies of neocolonial relations. Dr. Hunt's writing and research emerge from her 15 years of community-based work on violence, justice, gender, and sexuality among Indigenous people and communities,and she was recently awarded a Governor General's Gold Medal for her innovative research. She is currently Scholar-in-Residence at Vancouver Island University. Find Dr. Hunt online or on Twitter @thesarahhunt.

WHIPLASH

Director: Damien Chazelle;  USA, 2014, 108 min; 14A

“INTENSE!” The Globe and Mail

“CINEMATIC ADRENALINE!” RogerEbert.com

“A THRILL TO WATCH!”  --Slate

Miles Teller (“The Spectacular Now”) plays a young drummer, Andrew Neyman, who wants to be “one of the greats.” The movie charts his education/torture at the hands of an instructor (J. K. Simmons), who conducts the jazz band at the Manhattan conservatory where Andrew is a new student. Film has a long (dis)honor roll of sadistic teachers, but few have looked like they were getting as much of a thrill out of brutalizing their charges. As a go-for-it music movie, Whiplash is just about peerless.” New York Magazine

Lecture/Seminar Live Music, Intercity Competition, and Branding 2015-02-06 14:45:00
Description

Eliot Tretter
Assistant Professor, Geography, University of Calgary

In 1991, Texas’ state capital, Austin, branded itself the “Live Music Capital of the World,” a designation that has become central to the city’s competitive strategy.  The existing literature on Austin’s urban entrepreneurial strategy, reflecting the dominant trends in academic discussions, focuses on how this branding campaign cultivated and exploited the geographical particularities of the city’s cultural infrastructure.  However, I contend that the success of this effort also has been driven by the changes brought about within the music industry.  In particular, I argue that this is related to the changing value of live-music within the music industry and especially the elevated position of music promoters (those firms that rely on live music as an essential part of their business) in the industry.  As this lecture shows, the city’s branding efforts are reinforced by the industrial success of two of the music industry’s mid-sized promotional firms, SXSW Inc. and C3 Presents, Austin-based firms that, perhaps unwittingly, trade on and receive an extra-economic benefit (in the form of an economic rent) from the city’s live-music reputation.

Film "WHIPLASH" 2015-02-07 15:00:00
Description

WHIPLASH

Director: Damien Chazelle;  USA, 2014, 108 min; 14A

“INTENSE!” The Globe and Mail

“CINEMATIC ADRENALINE!” RogerEbert.com

“A THRILL TO WATCH!”  --Slate

Miles Teller (“The Spectacular Now”) plays a young drummer, Andrew Neyman, who wants to be “one of the greats.” The movie charts his education/torture at the hands of an instructor (J. K. Simmons), who conducts the jazz band at the Manhattan conservatory where Andrew is a new student. Film has a long (dis)honor roll of sadistic teachers, but few have looked like they were getting as much of a thrill out of brutalizing their charges. As a go-for-it music movie, Whiplash is just about peerless.” New York Magazine

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2015-02-07 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.
