Film MANCHESTER by the SEA 2017-02-26 15:00:00
Description

MANCHESTER BY THE SEA

Director: Kenneth Lonergan; USA, 2016, 137 min; 14A

Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges

NOMINATED FOR 6 ACADEMY AWARDS: BEST PICTURE, BEST DIRECTOR, BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY, BEST ACTOR, BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS, BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR!

In Kenneth Lonergan's movies, the past gnaws at people until it threatens to gnaw them away entirely. This heartbreaking drama centers on a seething, tight-lipped janitor (Casey Affleck) who arrives in the title Massachusetts seaport to bury his older brother and discovers that he's been named guardian of his 16-year-old nephew (Lucas Hedges). A playwright by training, Lonergan writes leather-tough dialogue that serves mainly to protect the characters from their own raw emotion; despite all the hard talk, this is a movie of deep sorrow, compassion, and forgiveness. –Chicago Reader

Music KIRAN AHLUWALIA 2017-02-26 19:30:00
Description

Kiran Ahluwalia is a modern purveyor of the great vocal traditions of India and Pakistan which she honors intensely yet departs from in assertive ways. Her original compositions embody the essence of Indian music while embracing influences from both the West and Africa -- specifically the Sahara. Kiran Ahluwalia credits three powerful influences with shaping her music: Sikh spirituals, classical Indian music, and the lush passions of Bollywood musicals.

Expressing her muse through ghazals and Punjabi folk songs, the Juno award winner explores the language of the heart with beautiful artistry and smoldering intensity.Her music reveals a compelling harmony that unites diverse inspirations into a truly sublime and satisfying whole.

With her 4-piece group of electric and acoustic guitar, accordion and tabla, Ahluwalia creates boundary-breaking songs that invite us to explore the human condition.

Film QUEEN OF KATWE 2017-02-26 12:30:00
Description

QUEEN OF KATWE

Director: Mira Nair; USA, 2016, 125 min; PG

Best for ages 10 and up.

An irresistible underdog sport movie, based on the true story of Phiona Mutesi (Madina Nalwanga), a chess prodigy from a poor section of Kampala, Uganda. The director, Mira Nair (‘Monsoon Wedding’), infuses a familiar genre with a vibrant and complex sense of place. Lupita Nyong’o (as Phiona’s mother) and David Oyelowo (as her coach) are excellent, as ever. –The New York Times

“Directed by the great Mira Nair, the film hits you like a shot in the heart.” –Rolling Stone

“Just try to resist the charms of Mira Nair’s ‘Queen of Katwe,’ a triumph-of-the-human-spirit movie that’s ultimately, well, triumphant.”Seattle Times

“This humanistic tale, helmed by a masterful filmmaker, offers a potent — and yes, inspirational — story of triumph against huge odds.”The Wrap

The programme opens with wonderful waltz rhythms and rich Roma motifs in the overture to Johann Strauss’ Zigeunerbaron (The Gypsy Baron). Canada’s own Murray Adaskin wrote Saskatchewan Legend in 1959; rhapsodic in form, it is based on two folk songs from the time of Louis Riel. Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, one of the “darkest and deepest” symphonies of the 19th century, concludes the programme with great beauty and gravitas.

Lecture/Seminar CAVI lecture: A Tale of Two Sunken Harbour Cities: The Harbours of Ancient Athens and Corinth 2017-02-27 19:30:00
Description

Classical Association of Vancouver Island.

Fifth meeting of the 2016-17 Academic year will take place on Monday, 27 February at 7:30 pm in University Centre A180 (Senate Room).

Professor Bjørn Lovén (SAXO Institute, University of Copenhagen) will present a lecture entitled, "A Tale of Two Sunken Harbour Cities: The Harbours of Ancient Athens and Corinth."

In ancient times as today, the sea served as a medium for cultures to connect with a wider world through trade, colonization, and military conquest. In the mountainous, peninsular and island-strewn regions of ancient Greek civilization, the vast majority of trade, communication and exchange of knowledge took place on the seas, in anchorages, and in harbour areas.  Ancient harbour settlements evolved into focal points of human interaction and served as umbilical cords, as it were, to the mainland.  This lecture will explore the archaeology and history of two very different ancient harbour types, focusing on the harbours of Corinth and Athens. 

The Classical Association of Vancouver Island is UVic’s organization for people interested in the Greek and Roman worlds. Monthly lectures by local and international scholars take place at UVic. Everyone is welcome. To join CAVI and be on our mailing list, please send your name, contact information (address/email), and membership dues (10$/year, cheques payable to CAVI):

Lecture/Seminar ANTH Grad Colloquium: Fire and the Genus Homo: The archaeological evidence from Wonderwerk Cave, South Africa 2017-02-27 11:30:00
Description

GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

Fire and the Genus Homo: The archaeological evidence from Wonderwerk Cave, South Africa

Dr. Francesco Berna
Assistant Professor
Department of Archaeology, Simon Fraser University 

Monday, February 27th, 2017
11:30 am – 12:50 pm
Cornett Building, Room A225

The use of fire is a major turning point in human evolution that provided fundamental means of adaptation and social aggregation.  Efforts to pinpoint the initial appearance of use fire in archaeological contexts remain inconclusive. In fact, the evidence at many early prehistory sites in Africa and Eurasia fail to provide compelling distinction between natural (e.g. bush fires) and anthropogenic sources of fire.  Wonderwerk Cave (27° 50′ 44.7″ S, 023° 33′ 12.3″ E), where human presence has been documented without interruptions since 1.7 million years ago, preserves several evidence of fire. The evidence for fire associated with Oldowan and Acheulean contexts, located ca. 25 meters behind the current drip line, will be presented. The evidence includes diffuse magnetic susceptibility anomalies and burnt fauna and lithic artifacts. Evidence suggesting the anthropogenic origin of the burning will be contrasted to potential natural causes.

EVERYONE WELCOME.

Lecture/Seminar Ecology of Salmonids in Estuaries Around the World 2017-02-27 19:30:00
Description

Victoria Natural History Society: MARINE NIGHT
Biologists have long marvelled at how anadromous salmonids, fish that pass from rivers into oceans and back, survive, as they migrate between these two very different environments. Based on his recent book published by UBC Press, Colin Levings will present an overview of our current knowledge of how salmonid species around the world are adapted to estuaries. He will also discuss the wide diversity of estuary types found on many continents. His book will be available for sale.

Lecture/Seminar Department Seminar: The Ancient Athenian Naval Bases in the Pireaus: The Backbone of the World's First Democracy 2017-02-27 14:30:00
Description

A public lecture hosted by the Department of Greek and Roman Studies at the UVic will be presented by:

Professor Bjørn Lovén (SAXO Institute, University of Copenhagen) will present a public lecture entitled, “The Ancient Athenian Naval Bases in the Pireaus: The Backbone of the World's First Democracy.”

Athens in the 5th and 4th century BC was preeminent because of her naval power, and with the navy’s importance came that of her harbourcity, the Piraeus, where naval bases housed the hundreds of triremes that served as the primary arm of Athenian might. The Zea Harbour Project has uncovered extensive archaeological remains of the Athenian naval facilities. This seminar will explore a complex archaeological puzzle and show how the remains can be connected to the dawn of Athenian power in the late 6th and early 5th century BC; to the young democracy at the time of the Persian Wars; to the age of empire when Athens ruled the eastern Mediterranean; and to the waning years of the 4th century BC when Athens stood in the shadow of Macedonia.

UVic’s Public Lecture 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.

Lecture/Seminar The high-resolution revolution in geomorphology: new process insights into landscape change from LiDAR and drone-based photogrammetry 2017-02-27 15:00:00
Description

Dr. Jon Tunnicliffe
Lecturer, School of Environment, University of Auckland

New capabilities for visualizing, quantifying and modelling earth surface change challenges geographers to query and map the landscape in new ways, at previously unobtainable extents and resolution. Of particular interest are time sequences of imagery and topographic data ('DEMs of Difference'), used to quantitatively assess rates and patterns of landscape change. This step change in information acquisition revives some enduring questions in geomorphology, notably, how to link very fine-scale, short-term changes with larger system behaviour, across ever-expanding process domains and time scales. In this talk, I review some important advances in capturing landscape processes, with examples of insights into system behaviour derived from my research into sedimentary impacts on river floodplains, coastal dune tracts, and thawing permafrost terrain. I conclude with some perspective on opportunities for leveraging these technologies to answer emerging landscape questions, interdisciplinary in scope, in both applied and theoretical domains.

Lecture/Seminar Academic Freedom and it Discontents in India 2017-02-28 16:30:00
Description

28 February 2017

4:30-6:00pm

Fraser 158

 

Academic Freedom and it Discontents in India

Presented by Dr Niraja Gopal Jayal, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi

 

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; min-height: 17.0px} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 15.0px Helvetica}

Contesting the assumption that academic freedom is simply a function of the contingent predispositions of state power, Dr. Jayal will argue that the prospects for academic freedom depend substantially on the idea of the university in a given society, and the way in which this expresses the relationship between power and knowledge. The present imperilments of academic freedom in India emanate not only from conspicuous political ideological tendencies, but also from a creeping techno-managerial orientation and audit culture that reflects global practices. Documenting historical shifts in conceptions of academic freedom, this talk will explore how both these strands converge to jeopardise academic freedom in contemporary India.

Film I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO 2017-02-28 19:00:00
Description

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO

Director: Raoul Peck, France/USA, 2016, 95 minutes

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE!

In one of the most courageous and assertive documentaries of the year, Raoul Peck picks up on an unfinished manuscript by James Baldwin to examine the issue of race in America through the (too-short) lives of Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, and Malcolm X. Connecting these martyrs of the Civil Rights movement with Black Lives Matter, Peck has produced a searing work that cuts to the very heart of American identity. –Vancouver International Film Festival

"Chernobyl" today is not only an actual event, but also a symbolic one. As such, it is similar to other traumatic events in twentieth century history - the Holocaust, Auschwitz, and Hiroshima. After Chernobyl the image of the world has changed, and the history of the new era of nuclear culture has begun. How one can talk about the trauma of Chernobyl? Who are the witnesses of Chernobyl? How the nuclear imagination is connected with the experience of Chernobyl?

Description

A Social History of Income Tax

British Columbia's Role in the First 50 years of the Federal Income Tax

Dr. Shirley Tillotson

Department of History, Dalhousie University

What better way to explore the relationship between citizens and the state than through tax? Complying with or resisting the taxman is always about money, but it is also always about larger questions, too. Shirley Tillotson, author of Give and Take: the Citizen-Taxpayer and the Rise of Canadian Democracy, explores working class and indigenous tax protests and Treasury tax projects in British Columbia in the early years of the federal income tax and shows their impact on democratic culture.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-02 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.

Lecture/Seminar The Crisis of the Spirit and the Globalization of Addiction 2017-03-02 16:30:00
Description

Presentation by David Seljak, CSRS Visiting Lecturer
Canadian psychologist Bruce Alexander had defined the globalization of addiction as a result of a widespread “poverty of the spirit.” At the same time, Pope Francis analyses the despair and unhappiness of modern society as a spiritual crisis that leads to self-centredness, materialism, and consumerism. This unhappiness has fueled a twin crisis of social injustice and ecological destruction. Dr. Seljak will outline the connections between the analyses of Dr. Alexander, a wholly secular thinker, and Pope Francis, both of whom see the suffering created by conditions in the modern world as a spiritual crisis.

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne lecture "Maidan as a Social and Cultural Phenomenon" 2017-03-02 16:30:00
Description

Lansdowne lecture by Dr. Tamara Hundorova (Institute of Literature, the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine; Ukrainische Freie Universitat)

The Ukrainian Euromaidan of 2013-2014 represents both political and aesthetic phenomena, a space of socio-cultural performance where new kinds of identities were constructed -- national, social, political and gender. The perception and consideration of Euromaidan through the prism of the performance theory does not suggest the reduction of the political and ideological substance of the Ukrainian revolution. Rather, Maidan was permeated by theatricality and performance, and in this respect this place and space was a product of the contemporary post-modern world, a world of new opportunities and social practices that helped improve it morally, politically and intellectually.
