Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-26 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 Old Gods and the New": The Politics of Ethnic and Religious Identity in Restoration England 2017-03-26 16:30:00
Description

Presentation by John Trafford, Winnifred Lonsdale Graduate Student Fellow.
Early modern England was a politically messy place, and it was never a foregone conclusion that the country’s politics would develop into the form that we know today. This presentation examines the conflicts between religious and ethnic identities in the tumultuous period of English political history in the late seventeenth century. It will explore early modern England’s anti-Catholic culture, and the ‘ancient liberties’ of the English people. Demonstrating the interconnectedness of religious and ethnic identities in this time and place will help us to understand the extent to which church and state were unified, and the impact this had on notions of ‘Englishness.’

Other THE IRRELEVANT SHOW! LIVE RECORDING 2017-03-26 19:30:00
Description

LIVE FROM THE FARQUHAR AUDITORIUM... IT’S THE IRRELEVANT SHOW!

CBC Radio’s hit comedy show, The Irrelevant Show, is coming to Victoria to record an evening of all-new comedy sketches and songs.

Now entering its seventh season on national radio, The Irrelevant Show finds laughs in the lives of everyday Canadians: hit sketches include Mom Downloads a Podcast, The Chemainus Song, The New Ten Commandments (Which declares “Thou Shalt Not Microwave Fish at Work”) and Man Cold.

The show also offers an irreverent take on popular culture - from the news, to game shows, to superheroes. They’ve done sketches about Yoda, Batman and Lord of the Rings, and created a popular video in which an NHL player thanks fans for telling him to shoot the puck. http://www.cbc.ca/radio/irrelevantshow/nhl-player-thanks-hockey-fans-for-telling-him-to-shoot-the-puck-1.3420306.

"We offer something for every comedy taste," says producer/director Peter Brown, "there are so many styles and points of view, that the show completely changes subject and tone from one sketch to the next.

At tapings, when I ask audience members which sketch was their favorite, I usually get ten different answers. It’s great to see the sketches resonating with so many different people."

The Irrelevant Show’s cast is made up of some of Canada’s most talented comedy performers: Mark Meer, Donovan Workun, Jana O’Connor and Neil Grahn. For this performance, the cast will be joined by BC comic and actor Amy Shostak, and the musical guests will be Victoria’s own Jan Randall and Wes Borg.

These live recordings are events unto themselves, with sound effects created right before the audience’s eyes and ears, and between-sketch banter that many fans say is a highlight of the live show. The Irrelevant Show has become one of CBC Radio’s most successful comedy shows, drawing 750,000 listeners every week. The show has won two Canadian Comedy awards (most recently for the sketch Bee Circus) and a medal for Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program at the prestigious New York festivals.

Description

MR. GAGA: A True Story of Love and Dance

Director: Tomer Heymann; Israel, 2015, 100 min; English & Hebrew with subtitles; PG

WINNER! DOCUMENTARY AUDIENCE AWARD –SXSW Festival

Leading Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin is profiled in possibly the most exciting documentary for fans of edgier modern dance since “Pina.” With a compelling lead character and plenty of striking performance footage from his tenure to date as director of Batsheva Dance Group, Tomer Heymann delivers a feature that has won a handful of fest prizes.

Still fit, limber and driven as ever in his mid-60s, Naharin began professional training as late as age 22. He accepted an offer in 1990 to take over Tel Aviv’s Batsheva Company. He chucked its staple fare for some adventuresome new works of his own. Their electric impact, incorporating jagged, unpredictable movement, multimedia factors, sociopolitical themes and other challenging elements, quickly attracted new patrons — and critical admiration that greatly increased the institution’s international stature.

Between riveting excerpts from individual dances, Naharin is shown rehearsing his company and creating new pieces. –Variety

Mark this “Required Viewing” for dance fans who know the term Gaga goes far beyond the lady in the meat dress. Blending a stunning collection of archival footage, interviews with his uncompromising subject, and awe-inspiring dance excerpts, Heymann crafts a definitive portrait of a brilliant innovator who’s influenced dance across the planet. Georgia Straight

Lecture/Seminar ANTH Grad Colloquium: Bodies Exposed: Environmental In/Justice in Canada's Chemical Valley 2017-03-27 11:30:00
Description

GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

Bodies Exposed: Environmental In/Justice in Canada's Chemical Valley

Dr. Sarah Marie Wiebe
Postdoc & Limited Term Assistant Teaching Professor, Department of Political Science, Uvic

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

In an area known as Canada’s Chemical Valley, citizens of Aamjiwnaang live in Anishinabek territory at the frontlines of this pollution hotspot. Dr. Wiebe will discuss her recently published book Everyday Exposure: Indigenous Mobilization in Canada’s Chemical Valley, which uncovers systemic injustices near the Ontario-Michigan border, where Canada’s densest concentration of chemical manufacturing surrounds the Aamjiwnaang First Nation. Living in the polluted heart of Chemical Valley, members of this community express concern about their environmental and reproductive health. By examining the problems that Canada’s conflicting levels of jurisdiction pose for the creation of environmental justice policy and analyzing clashes between Indigenous and scientific knowledge, this book argues that social and political change requires an experiential and transformative “sensing policy” approach grounded in lived-experiences and stories.

EVERYONE WELCOME.

Lecture/Seminar Indigenous Water Initiatives: Achievements and Capacity Gaps 2017-03-28 12:00:00
Description

**SPACE IS LIMITED** Register now!

A priority winning condition for watershed governance in British Columbia is co-governance, which involves meaningful partnerships and shared decision-making between Indigenous and non-Indigenous decision-makers and communities. Before co-governance arrangements can be initiated, First Nations must have the internal means to develop and articulate their communities’ water priorities and values. In many regions in B.C., First Nations are leading innovative watershed governance approaches. Despite this leadership, there are also capacity gaps that can constrain progress.

In this webinar, Kate Cave (Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources) and Genevieve Layton-Cartier (First Nations Fisheries Council) will share results from a 2016 systematic research review of Indigenous-led freshwater planning initiatives and co-governance arrangements in B.C. This research identified capacity gaps and will contribute to shaping the future of freshwater planning and a new watershed governance regime in the province. The webinar will also feature perspectives from Shannon Squire (P'egp'ig'lha Council/T'it'q'et First Nation) and Ashley Doyle (Kwantlen First Nation), who will share their journeys to implement or develop water initiatives in their respective nations.

Lecture/Seminar Sifting through the Anthropocene: science and discourse in a human made epoch 2017-03-28 15:30:00
Description

Human activity is leaving such a pervasive and persistent signature on the Earth—from the combustion of fossil fuels to the dropping of nuclear weapons to even the global spread of the domestic chicken—that we may have caused the planet to enter a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene. These traces of human activity will last for millions of years.
 
The Anthropocene concept has rapidly leapt the bounds of earth-systems science and emerged as a new paradigm for understanding our place in the world by social scientists, humanities scholars, politicians, activists, journalists, educators and artists.
 
In this talk, geologist James Syvitski will explore the significance of the Anthropocene and its complex dynamic structures, emergent phenomena and unintended consequences; how these come at us at a great many different scales while weaving together biophysical constraints and social, economic and political conditions. The talk will also investigate how we can align global governance with stewardship, ultimately deciding our future as a civilisation.
 
 
Professor James (Jai) Syvitski holds faculty appointments in Geological Sciences, Applied Mathematics, Atmosphere & Ocean Sciences, Hydrological Sciences, and Geophysics at the University of Colorado.

Lecture/Seminar COORDINATED GLOBAL AND REGIONAL CLIMATE MODELLING Presenter: 2017-03-29 15:00:00
Description

A new approach of coordinated global and regional climate modelling is presented. It is applied to the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis regional climate model, CanRCM4, and its parent global climate model CanESM2.  CanRCM4 was developed specifically to downscale climate predictions and climate projections made by its parent global model.  The close association of a regional climate model, RCM, with a parent global model, GCM, offers novel avenues of model development and application, which are not typically available to independent regional climate modelling centres.  For example, when CanRCM4 is driven by its parent model, driving information for all of its prognostic variables is available (including aerosols and chemical species), significantly improving the quality of their simulation.  Additionally, CanRCM4 can be driven by its parent model for all downscaling applications by employing a spectral nudging procedure in CanESM2 designed to constrain its evolution to follow any large-scale driving data. Finally, coordinating regional and global modelling efforts helps to highlight the importance of assessing RCM ``value added'' relative to their driving global models.  As a first step in this direction, a framework for identifying ``appreciable differences'' in RCM vs. GCM climate change results is proposed and applied to CanRCM4 and CanESM2.
 
Bio: Dr. John Scinocca is the Head of Model Development at the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis, Environment and Climate Change Canada. His research interests include global and regional climate modelling, climate dynamics, middle-atmosphere dynamics, internal gravity wave dynamics, stratified shear instability and geophysical fluid dynamics.

Film LAND OF MINE 2017-03-29 19:00:00
Description

LAND OF MINE

Director: Martin Zandvliet; Denmark/Germany, 2016, 101 min; Danish/German with subtitles; 14A

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

It might seem hard to find a World War II story that hasn’t been told, but Danish director Martin Zandvliet has come up with a fresh and compelling approach. Based on a true but not well-known part of history, the film works as a moving antiwar essay and as a gripping thriller. After the official end of the war in May 1945, German POWs in Denmark were put to work on a deadly task — defusing more than 2 million German land mines along the country’s west coast. Danish Sergeant Rasmussen (Roland Moller) is assigned to oversee the German prisoners. Most of them are teenage boys conscripted by Hitler in the last days of the war, and they are hopelessly ill equipped to carry out their dangerous job. –Hollywood Reporter

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecture - Ringel's Decomposition Problem and Graph Labellings 2017-03-29 19:00:00
Description

Speaker: Professor Alexander Rosa (Emeritus Professor, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, McMaster University)

Abstract:

During the 1963 international graph theory conference in Smolenice, Czechoslovakia, Gerhard Ringel formulated the following conjecture:

The complete graph with vertices can be decomposed into subgraphs, each isomorphic to a given tree with edges.

Shortly thereafter, several kinds of graph labellings were introduced with the aim of attacking Ringel’s conjecture. Among these, the graceful labelling (originally called  labelling) became the most prominent.

I will attempt to present an overview of the up-to-date approaches to Ringel’s conjecture, and also to the well-known conjecture that every tree has a graceful labelling.

Lecture/Seminar Treasures and Tea: The Word in Miniature 2017-03-29 12:30:00
Description

In the nineteenth century, a curious genre of literature experienced newfound popularity. Thumb Bibles-- miniature, abridged versions of the Bible, often embellished with illustrations and intended for children-- provide valuable insight into material culture and religious instruction during the Victorian era. In this lecture, Alyssa Currie will offer a lively introduction to the genre and present a remarkable example from UVic Special Collections: The Little Picture Testament

​Alyssa Currie is a Master’s student in the English Department at the University of Victoria. Her MA research uses primary sources to locate tigers in late 18th century London and thus reconsider William Blake’s “The Tyger.” Ms. Currie’s academic interests have led her to pursue research in London and complete a summer co-op at Library and Archive Canada. Her article "The Victorian Thumb Bible as Material Object: Charles Tilt’s The Little Picture Testament (1839)" recently appeared in Cahiers victoriens et édouardiens.​

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.

Other Embrace Aging - focus groups 2017-03-30 16:00:00
Description

The vision for a “precision health” strategy is based on the rapid translation of research discoveries to improve patient care and health outcomes. To effectively tackle the complexities of chronic conditions and cognitive disorders and to make advances in their prevention and treatment, researchers are focusing on measuring an individual’s health repeatedly over time to obtain more accurate assessments of changes in health and wellness. However, this research is very demanding on participants. We are interested in discussing major research questions, preferred modes of responding, and design factors associated with recruitment and retention including frequency of contact, length of survey, and preference for feedback. Please join one of our focus groups, meet some of our key researchers, and help us define the next generation of research!

Lecture/Seminar City Talks: Adrift in the City: Anarchy, Order, and Spatial Imagination 2017-03-30 19:30:00
Description

Jeff Ferrell is Professor of Sociology at Texas Christian University, USA, and Visiting Professor of Criminology at the University of Kent, UK. His City Talks lecture will explore how cities in North America, Europe and elsewhere today find themselves awash in drifters of all sorts: homeless populations, immigrants and refugees, peripatetic part-time workers, gutter punks and nocturnal graffiti writers. In many of these cities, a particular irony is in operation: emerging consumerist economies and new forms of policing serve to cast and keep such groups adrift, while at the same time seeking to erase drifters from public space and public consciousness. Yet those adrift are not passive victims of these circumstances; individually and collectively, they engage in alternative, often anarchic spatial practices and develop subversive understandings of urban life. The contested place of drifters in the urban environment in this way reflects a larger conflict over the meaning of city life itself, and a fundamental battle over anarchy, order, and spatial imagination.

Lecture/Seminar Act of Faith: A New Play about Disability and Belief 2017-03-30 16:30:00
Description

Presentation by Janet Munsil, CSRS Artist in Residence
After more than a decade in a wheelchair, a young woman with a spinal cord injury has a dream of healing, in which she stands and walks. Munsil’s latest play examines how the woman’s rapid and unexpected recovery, attributed to her faith, could impact family, friends, healthcare providers, and the disability community. Written for a future season at Vancouver’s Realwheels Theatre, Act of Faith explores certainty, identity, stigma, and the embodiment of disability and faith. This lecture will incorporate readings of scenes from the play.

Film LA LA LAND 2017-03-31 15:00:00
Description

LA LA LAND

Director: Damien Chazelle; USA, 2016, 128 min; PG

NOMINATED FOR 14 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE, ACTRESS, ACTOR, DIRECTOR, SCREENPLAY, SONG, SCORE, CINEMATOGRAPHY!

Damien Chazelle's daring and beautiful follow-up to ‘Whiplash’ is an original L.A.-set musical starring Ryan Gosling and a glorious Emma Stone as a couple of Hollywood strivers — he a musician, she an actress — who fall in love. The director's feel for a classic genre is instinctive; he knows how to stage and frame dance and lyrical movement, to transition from conventional to singing scenes, to turn naturalistic settings into fantasy backdrops. Musical lovers, and many others, will be swept away. –The Hollywood Reporter

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-01 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.
