Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-12 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?

Description

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

(Gene Kelly & Stanley Donen, USA, 1952, 103 min; rated G)

This exuberant satire of Hollywood in the late 20s, at the time of the transition from silents to talkies, is probably the most enjoyable of all American movie musicals. The teamwork of the stars, Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds, is joyful and the material is first-rate. –Pauline Kael

Music AVENTA PRESENTS: Wolfgang Rihm's Chiffre 2017-03-12 20:00:00
Description

Aventa Ensemble
Bill Linwood, conductor

Performing:
Gerhard Staebler/Michael Oesterle – Den Mullfahrern von San Francisco (The Garbagemen of San Fransisco)
Wolfgang Rihm – Chiffre V and VII *
Philippe Leroux – AIR-RÉ
Moritz Eggert – Interior at Petworth *

* Canadian premieres

Aventa performs Wolfgang Rihm’s Chiffre V and Chiffre VII. Described by Tom Service of The Guardian as one of the most approachable, engaging and profound composers writing music today, Rihm descibes these works as “theatrical, bleak and frosty, yet darkly splendid.”

Munich based composer Moritz Eggert describes “Interior at Petworth” as “an expression of my increasing dissatisfaction with new music”. In particular, Moritz finds himself bored with pieces whose beginnings already evoke a clearly defined “style” and finds these works so often lack in vitality, freedom and real surprise. Written for an ensemble of seven – adventurous – musicians, there is no set course to this evening’s event!

Pre-concert talk at 7:15 p.m. Tickets available online and at the door.

Lecture/Seminar More Than Waste: Participatory action research with waste pickers in the global South for a social and environmental justice agenda 2017-03-13 15:00:00
Description

Monday 13 March
3:00-4:30 PM
Sedgewick C168

Community engaged research on waste and with waste pickers in different parts of the world, has generated rich material on the vast array of socio-material practices that shape contemporary culture and society. Common lived experiences and discourses on waste of those working with waste, particularly in the global South, capture part of the materiality of waste and suggest the scope of the immaterial aspects of waste and their consequences. What is waste? Hazard, filth, manageable object, resource or commodity. In view of the challenges linked to climate and environmental change and given the contribution of society’s consumption and wider social and ecological footprints to these planetary issues, waste management has developed into a crucial topic in contemporary societies. In this talk I will introduce the complexity of waste studies and will refer to some results of participatory action research conducted over the past years with organized waste pickers in Brazil, Nicaragua, Kenya and Mongolia. These workers make a livelihood by collecting recyclable waste from various places in low, middle and high-income countries. Waste pickers are key stakeholders in resource recovery and have, in some cases, been influential in changing policies and waste governance. 

 

Jutta Gutberlet

Jutta Gutberlet is Professor in Human Geography at UVic. Her research is community-based and focuses on waste governance and the everyday livelihoods and community development issues of the urban poor, particularly in the global South. She works with waste pickers to develop more inclusive and sustainable practices of waste management. This research is participatory and action oriented and applies situated urban political ecology, social and ecological economy theory, to address multiple waste related issues, such as consumption, production and waste generation; poverty reduction; food security; occupational health and inclusive policy, in the local and global context.

Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-13 20:00:00
Description

The Inspector

March 9 –18, 2017

By Nikolay Gogol
Adapted & Directed by Linda Hardy

Word arrives in a little government town that an inspector is coming – incognito! Panic seizes the town’s officials: Will their little improprieties be exposed? Meanwhile, a lowly civil servant visiting from out of province is mistaken for the inspector. The officials outdo themselves to please him with gifts and he, in turn, grows bolder. This satirical farce spins out of control, as hypocrisy, corruption, and human greed escalate. Gogol’s comedy of errors, written in19th-century Russia, is no less relevant in our modern political landscape.

Appropriate for ages 13+

Lecture/Seminar Research in geospatial data science: uncertainty analysis & land change modeling 2017-03-13 15:30:00
Description

Dr. Jing Gao
Postdoctoral Researcher, Climate and Global Dynamics Laboratory, National Center for Atmospheric Research

Data-driven geospatial models are widely used to understand and forecast changing natural and human environments. Careful model evaluation is essential for using modeling results as basis for policy development and decision making. In this talk I will first review my dissertation research that examined a bias-variance error decomposition (BVD) as a tool to diagnose data-driven geospatial models. I investigated the BVD of three error types relevant for geospatial modeling (squared error, absolute error, and categorical error), through both analytical inquiry and case studies of land change modeling and environmental remote sensing. My results demonstrated that BVD can help practitioners understand and improve model performance, reveal new insights about the modeled geospatial process, help identify and delineate spatial non-stationarity, and help guide training sample collection. I found that different error measures can lead to different conclusions about the same model and made recommendations for choosing appropriate metrics. Acknowledging that obtaining spatially explicit errors are necessary in the spatiotemporal analysis of landscape features, my next project in basic geospatial science will investigate how these errors impact analysis and modeling results. For the presentation, I will outline the development of a model able to simulate spatiotemporal distributions of thematic errors in large-scale fine-resolution land change investigations. I will conclude the talk by presenting my current work, simulating global spatiotemporal patterns of built-up land change under various future socioeconomic scenarios. I will also describe how this work connects to a larger team effort and my future directions in this line of research.

Lecture/Seminar The digital-portfolio: A dynamic 21st century tool for network learning 2017-03-14 11:30:00
Description

The practice of using a digital-portfolio in professional education has developed as part of a growing movement in multiple sectors of education. Drawing on visual research findings from the third year of a SSHRC funded study on the use of digital-portfolios in three professional programs, this session will show how digital-portfolios are a powerful tool to promote digital literacy skills, present a vehicle for authentic assessment and offer a process for professional networking. In this interactive workshop, participants will have hands-on experience of creating their own digital-portfolios, based on a theme, and experientially learn the technology and skills involved in using a digital-portfolio known as http://folioz.ca. The session will conclude with discussion on how a digital-portfolio can dynamically develop the learning in university programs.

Film TONI ERDMANN 2017-03-14 19:00:00
Description

TONI ERDMANN

Director: Maren Ade; Germany, 2016, 163 min; German with subtitles; 14A

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

Comedies are supposed to be short, but this German farce succeeds by virtue of its endlessness—like its hero, an aging irrepressible joker, the movie keeps bugging you until you can't help but laugh. Winfried (Peter Simonischek) loves gags and goofy disguises, and his penchant for fun has alienated him from his grown daughter (Sandra Hüller), now a hard-charging business consultant. Winfried travels to Bucharest to spend a few weeks with the daughter and turns her neatly ordered world upside down, donning fake teeth and a black hippie wig and passing himself off to her associates as life coach Toni Erdmann. –Chicago Reader

A crazy, inventive, and emotive father/daughter escapade. –Toronto Star

Lecture/Seminar A History of the German Colonial Empire in Objects 2017-03-14 13:30:00
Description

University of Victoria - Department of History

A History of the German Colonial Empire in Objects

Prof. Dr. Benedikt Stuchtey - Chair, Contemporary History Philipps Universität-Marburg

The lecture discusses the value of the material – in particular, the visual – turn for understanding imperial history. How was the project of the German colonial empire popularized? What role did pre- as well as post-colonial fantasies play? Reflecting on images in their symbolic functions the lecture draws a connection between the pictural and the colonial ideas.

Prof. Dr. Stuchtey is a historian of global history from the early nineteenth to the late twentieth century and has published widely on historiography, the history of knowledge, comparative imperialisms, science, and the history of the family and childhood since the nineteenth century. He has held visiting professorships in Basel and Delhi, has served as the deputy director of the German Historical Institute, and currently serves as the Dean of the Department of History and Cultural Studies. He has published numerous books in German and English, including Science and the European Empires, 1800 – 1950, Writing World History, 1800 – 2000, and Across Cultural Borders: Historiography in Global Perspective.

Sponsored by the Department of History, the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies, the Centre for Global Studies, the Faculty of Humanities, and the Canada Research Chair in Global and Comparative History

Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-15 20:00:00
Description

The Inspector

March 9 –18, 2017

By Nikolay Gogol
Adapted & Directed by Linda Hardy

Word arrives in a little government town that an inspector is coming – incognito! Panic seizes the town’s officials: Will their little improprieties be exposed? Meanwhile, a lowly civil servant visiting from out of province is mistaken for the inspector. The officials outdo themselves to please him with gifts and he, in turn, grows bolder. This satirical farce spins out of control, as hypocrisy, corruption, and human greed escalate. Gogol’s comedy of errors, written in19th-century Russia, is no less relevant in our modern political landscape.

Appropriate for ages 13+

Film TONI ERDMANN 2017-03-15 19:00:00
Description

TONI ERDMANN

Director: Maren Ade; Germany, 2016, 163 min; German with subtitles; 14A

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

Comedies are supposed to be short, but this German farce succeeds by virtue of its endlessness—like its hero, an aging irrepressible joker, the movie keeps bugging you until you can't help but laugh. Winfried (Peter Simonischek) loves gags and goofy disguises, and his penchant for fun has alienated him from his grown daughter (Sandra Hüller), now a hard-charging business consultant. Winfried travels to Bucharest to spend a few weeks with the daughter and turns her neatly ordered world upside down, donning fake teeth and a black hippie wig and passing himself off to her associates as life coach Toni Erdmann. –Chicago Reader

A crazy, inventive, and emotive father/daughter escapade. –Toronto Star

Lecture/Seminar Treasures and Tea: The Queen's Printer and the Colonies 2017-03-15 12:30:00
Description

Caron Rollins, Law and Government Publications Librarian, UVic Libraries, and Marilyn Carr-Harris, Government Publications Librarian, Legislative Library

March 15, , 2017, 12:30-1:30 pm

Room A003, Lower Level, Mearns Centre for Learning—McPherson Library

Much of the early history of British Columbia can be gleaned from the pages of official government gazettes. Produced by the Queen’s Printer, the gazettes contain official notices, proclamations, and laws of government, and serve as a window into early British Columbia.  The first issue of the Government Gazette for the colony of British Columbia was published on January 3, 1863. In this talk, Caron Rollins, UVic Libraries and Marilyn Carr-Harris, Legislative Library, will discuss the ongoing digitization project to make the gazettes available online and the overall research value of these publications.

Treasures and Tea in Special Collections and the University Archives brings 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 Visiting Artist Lecture: Tori Foster 2017-03-15 19:30:00
Description

Tori Foster is a Los Angeles-based conceptual artist whose work centers on emergent behaviour and the urban landscape. Heavily process oriented, very little of Foster’s work is a direct representation of captured environs. Rather, captured imagery is treated as data, subjected to a series of actions, and re-presented to expose alternate information inherent to, but not visible in, the original dataset. Foster is the recipient of dozens of grants and awards and has shown work in 16 countries world-wide, including Germany, India, Korea, Australia, Brazil, and America.

Recent and current projects include: Primaries, photographic archetypes of urban, suburban, and rural trees in North America; Cadence, a kinetic installation illustrating the emergent behaviour of vehicles in motion, and Robotic Herd, a community of autonomous robots that migrate across a gallery space for which Foster was awarded a New Media Research and Production grant from the Canada Council for the Arts in 2016. Foster is currently Assistant Professor and the Head of Video/Digital Art at California State University, Northridge. She is represented by Pari Nadimi Gallery in Toronto, Canada.

Conference Indigenous Resurgence in an Age of Reconciliation 2017-03-16 08:00:00
Description

This symposium will bring together many prominent Indigenous scholars in the fields of Political Science, Law and Indigenous Governance to consider the long intellectual tradition of Indigenous resurgence within these fields while looking toward new directions in consideration of the challenges and possibilities produced in the era of reconciliation. Our aim in hosting this event is to cultivate an environment for productive discussion of a central concern facing Indigenous resurgence: our relationships with creation (land, water, animals, ancestors) and how these relationships have been impacted by reconciliation politics.

In conjunction with this symposium, the University of Victoria will publicly launch the Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Nationhood, which draws on faculty members and courses from the Political Science department, the Indigenous Governance program and the Faculty of Law to enable students to examine the intersections of law, politics, and governance with a focus on Indigenous nations and peoples.

We will launch the program publicly with a feast at the First Peoples House, inviting students, staff and faculty across UVIC as well as the local First Nations communities to join us in starting the program in a good way through the unveiling of a logo, singing and feasting.

This event is being held on the traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples.

Lecture/Seminar The fourth paradigm in five dimensions: linking people through place and vice versa 2017-03-16 15:30:00
Description

Dr. Grant McKenzie
Assistant Professor, Geographical Sciences, Center for Geospatial Information Science, University of Maryland

Place is one of the foundational concepts on which the field of Geography has been built. Traditionally, GI science research into place has been approached from a spatial perspective. While space is an integral feature of place, it represents only a single dimension (or a combination of three dimensions to be exact), in the complex, multidimensional concept that is place. With the increased availability of large, user-generated datasets, it has become increasingly apparent that the value of 'big data' lies not necessarily in its size, but in its heterogeneity. In my research, I exploit this heterogeneity to build computational, data-driven models of human behavior, taking a multi-dimensional approach to investigating place and the activities people carry out at those places. In this talk, I introduce the concept of Semantic Signatures built from spatial, temporal, and thematic dimensions extracted from user-contributed, and authoritative datasets. I show how these signatures can enhance existing geolocation methods, form the foundation of place-similarity models, and contribute to visualizing the platial pulse of a city.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-16 11:00
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.

Conference Indigenous Resurgence in an Age of Reconciliation 2017-03-17 08:00:00
Description

This symposium will bring together many prominent Indigenous scholars in the fields of Political Science, Law and Indigenous Governance to consider the long intellectual tradition of Indigenous resurgence within these fields while looking toward new directions in consideration of the challenges and possibilities produced in the era of reconciliation. Our aim in hosting this event is to cultivate an environment for productive discussion of a central concern facing Indigenous resurgence: our relationships with creation (land, water, animals, ancestors) and how these relationships have been impacted by reconciliation politics.

In conjunction with this symposium, the University of Victoria will publicly launch the Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Nationhood, which draws on faculty members and courses from the Political Science department, the Indigenous Governance program and the Faculty of Law to enable students to examine the intersections of law, politics, and governance with a focus on Indigenous nations and peoples.

We will launch the program publicly with a feast at the First Peoples House, inviting students, staff and faculty across UVIC as well as the local First Nations communities to join us in starting the program in a good way through the unveiling of a logo, singing and feasting.

This event is being held on the traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples.

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."

Lecture/Seminar Victoria Colloquium: Avery Kolers (University of Louisville) 2017-03-17 14:30:00
Description

Professor Kolers’ particular research interests include issues surrounding territorial rights and solidarity. These highly “applied” issues touch on a wide range of problems, but also raise hard questions about how to navigate deep diversity in a shared world. His 2009 book Land, Conflict, and Justice: A Political Theory of Territory (Cambridge University Press) won the Canadian Philosophical Association’s biennial book prize. More recently, his 2012 article “Floating Provisos and Sinking Islands” received the Journal of Applied Philosophy prize, awarded for “the best article published in the year’s volume.”

Currently, Professor Kolers is working on a book on solidarity and further articles on territorial rights. He has initiated a research project on the emergence of a discourse of indigenous title in the 16th-century Spanish Dominicans Francisco de Vitoria and Bartolomé de Las Casas as they grappled with the moral and political implications of the Encounter with the “new world.”

Lecture/Seminar Notes on a caribou hearing: spatial marginalization through participatory democracy in western Nunavut 2017-03-17 14:45:00
Description

Chui-Ling Tam
Assistant Professor, Department of Geography, University of Calgary

Adaptation is integral to Inuit culture.  In a rapidly changing Arctic beset by resource degradation and climate change, the 18-year-old Nunavut territory is experimenting with new norms of political engagement.  How the Nunavummiut participate in decision-making – and their access to participation – will determine their environmental and cultural futures.  Public hearings, as a key tool of community engagement, uphold the processes and tools of deliberative participation, but the power relations entwined in space are often unheeded.  The spatiality of participation can serve to marginalize those publics most affected by environmental policy.

 Decisions on participation time-space affect access materially because of who can be there in place to participate, and socially because of the place characteristics of participation.  In June 2016, the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board held caribou hearings in the territory’s western political and economic hub of Cambridge Bay, just before the predicted seasonal sea ice melt.  Inuit hunters and trappers wrestled with their roles as invited participants gathered in a central place.  They stepped outside the agenda to voice grievances regarding the location, timing and participation constraints of the hearings; they expressed anger at being out of place, cleaved from the support of their communities.  In situ observation of the hearings helped capture a thick description of aural and visual cues in environmental communication that were inevitably absent from the text of transcripts made publicly available on request afterward.  At the caribou hearings, spatial marginalization emerged as a dark side to participatory democracy.

Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-17 20:00:00
Description

The Inspector

March 9 –18, 2017

By Nikolay Gogol
Adapted & Directed by Linda Hardy

Word arrives in a little government town that an inspector is coming – incognito! Panic seizes the town’s officials: Will their little improprieties be exposed? Meanwhile, a lowly civil servant visiting from out of province is mistaken for the inspector. The officials outdo themselves to please him with gifts and he, in turn, grows bolder. This satirical farce spins out of control, as hypocrisy, corruption, and human greed escalate. Gogol’s comedy of errors, written in19th-century Russia, is no less relevant in our modern political landscape.

Appropriate for ages 13+

Film JULIETA 2017-03-17 15:00:00
Description

JULIETA

Director: Pedro Almodóvar; Spain, 2016, 99 min; Spanish with subtitles; 14A

Adapted from three short stories from Alice Munro’s “Runaway” collection, this mother-daughter head trip revisits familiar terrain from the filmmaker who gave us the ecstatically lurid melodramas “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” and “All About My Mother.” But adapting his temperament to match Munro’s signature restraint, Almodóvar tones it down in “Julieta,” which owes as much to the sleek, moody thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock.

The film begins as the title character — a chic middle-aged classics professor living in Madrid — is preparing to move to Portugal with her dashing husband. When Julieta encounters a friend of her daughter Antía, from whom she has been estranged for several years, she makes the instinctive decision to stay put in the city. Almodóvar tells the ensuing story — much of it told in flashback — with well-calibrated suspense and captivating brio.

Partly filmed on the romantic seaside of Galicia, “Julieta” is a nonstop visual feast. It’s no surprise that it is marvelous to look at, but it possesses just as much substance as style. --Washington Post

Almodóvar's admiration for the Alice Munro short stories is not misplaced. Despite rough patches, Julieta morphs into a haunting and hypnotic tribute to both their talents.Rolling Stone

Both a film noir and a candy-colored confection, Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta is one of the most absorbing films he's made in years.Village Voice

MONSTER TRUCKS

Chris Wedge, USA/Canada, 2016, 105 min; PG - violence

A spry, spirited and delightful family film that has nothing to do with giant-wheeled vehicles piling on top of one another in indoor arenas. Instead, it’s an eco-fable, delivered with energy, winking mischief, unobtrusive effects and a skilled cast.

An oil company, personified by its chief executive (Rob Lowe), is drilling in North Dakota when it hits a water-table mother lode of biological activity. A geyser releases an entity that finds its way to the small-town high-school senior Tripp (Lucas Till). Working at a junkyard, Tripp bonds with the creature, which he names Creech. Creech, subsists on oil, and takes up residence in Tripp’s decrepit jalopy, sometimes impertinently seizing control. Antic effects-laden car chases in town and country ensue, leading to a tender climax. The director Chris Wedge (“Ice Age”) makes a nimble, largely live-action debut with this movie, whose heart, humor and gentle conscience keep it humming. –The New York Times

Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-03-18 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."

Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-18 20:00:00
Description

The Inspector

March 9 –18, 2017

By Nikolay Gogol
Adapted & Directed by Linda Hardy

Word arrives in a little government town that an inspector is coming – incognito! Panic seizes the town’s officials: Will their little improprieties be exposed? Meanwhile, a lowly civil servant visiting from out of province is mistaken for the inspector. The officials outdo themselves to please him with gifts and he, in turn, grows bolder. This satirical farce spins out of control, as hypocrisy, corruption, and human greed escalate. Gogol’s comedy of errors, written in19th-century Russia, is no less relevant in our modern political landscape.

Appropriate for ages 13+

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-18 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 JULIETA 2017-03-18 15:00:00
Description

JULIETA

Director: Pedro Almodóvar; Spain, 2016, 99 min; Spanish with subtitles; 14A

Adapted from three short stories from Alice Munro’s “Runaway” collection, this mother-daughter head trip revisits familiar terrain from the filmmaker who gave us the ecstatically lurid melodramas “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” and “All About My Mother.” But adapting his temperament to match Munro’s signature restraint, Almodóvar tones it down in “Julieta,” which owes as much to the sleek, moody thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock.

The film begins as the title character — a chic middle-aged classics professor living in Madrid — is preparing to move to Portugal with her dashing husband. When Julieta encounters a friend of her daughter Antía, from whom she has been estranged for several years, she makes the instinctive decision to stay put in the city. Almodóvar tells the ensuing story — much of it told in flashback — with well-calibrated suspense and captivating brio.

Partly filmed on the romantic seaside of Galicia, “Julieta” is a nonstop visual feast. It’s no surprise that it is marvelous to look at, but it possesses just as much substance as style. --Washington Post

Almodóvar's admiration for the Alice Munro short stories is not misplaced. Despite rough patches, Julieta morphs into a haunting and hypnotic tribute to both their talents.Rolling Stone

Both a film noir and a candy-colored confection, Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta is one of the most absorbing films he's made in years.Village Voice

Conference Indigenous Resurgence in an Age of Reconciliation 2017-03-18 08:00:00
Description

This symposium will bring together many prominent Indigenous scholars in the fields of Political Science, Law and Indigenous Governance to consider the long intellectual tradition of Indigenous resurgence within these fields while looking toward new directions in consideration of the challenges and possibilities produced in the era of reconciliation. Our aim in hosting this event is to cultivate an environment for productive discussion of a central concern facing Indigenous resurgence: our relationships with creation (land, water, animals, ancestors) and how these relationships have been impacted by reconciliation politics.

In conjunction with this symposium, the University of Victoria will publicly launch the Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Nationhood, which draws on faculty members and courses from the Political Science department, the Indigenous Governance program and the Faculty of Law to enable students to examine the intersections of law, politics, and governance with a focus on Indigenous nations and peoples.

We will launch the program publicly with a feast at the First Peoples House, inviting students, staff and faculty across UVIC as well as the local First Nations communities to join us in starting the program in a good way through the unveiling of a logo, singing and feasting.

This event is being held on the traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples.
