Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-16 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.

Other NILDP & NILTT Reunion 2017 2017-04-18 12:00:00
Description

The Native Indian Language Diploma Program and Native Indian Language Teacher Training Reunion will be held on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, 12:00-2:00pm in the First Peoples House, Ceremonial Hall.

This event sponsored by the Department of Linguistics, Faculty of Humanities and Indigenous Education is being held in order to honour the work undertaken by staff and students of NILDP and NILTT, as well as to facilitate a dialogue around if, or how, the participants would like to tell this story. Lunch will be served in the Ceremonial Hall of the First Peoples House and the event will be attended by staff and students of the program, as well as current staff involved in relevant programming at the university.

The Native Indian Language Diploma Program and Native Indian Language Teacher Training ran from 1974 to 1981 at the University of Victoria. These programs remain some of the earliest attempts of their kind at Indigenous language revitalization in North America. Initially, the programs were established as a response to requests from Indigenous communities, with the goal of regenerating community-based instruction and use. Centered around community-based approaches, the programs built a framework for Indigenous language revitalization that recognized and embraced the geographic and educational needs of students. Although ending in the early 1980s, this framework can still be seen in ongoing language revitalization programs at the University of Victoria. Many of the former students have gone on to lead community-based language revitalization in their nations, have become authors and educational coordinators and have received PhDs and the Order of Canada. At the University of Victoria, the impact of these programs is still present, making it all the more significant that this story is honored and that students have the opportunity to tell it.

Lecture/Seminar From Alpine to Grassland - Plants of Waterton Lakes National Park 2017-04-18 19:30:00
Description

BOTANY NIGHT Victoria Natural History Society

Ian Cruickshank and Ali Jones spent the summer of 2015 working as Ecological Monitoring Technicians at Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta. This park contains over 1000 vascular plant species, as well as some spectacular landscapes and diverse wildlife. You’ll see some beautiful photos of Waterton’s plants as we take you on a tour of the flora across the park’s ecosystems, from grasslands, to snow forests, to the dry alpine ridges. There just might be the odd non-plant surprise to look forward to, as well!

Lecture/Seminar ASBC: Lithic Technologies of the Discovery Islands: Materials, Stone Tool Production, and Communities of Skilled Practitioners 2017-04-18 19:30:00
Description

ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA In association with the Anthropology Department of UVic

Cornett B135, UVic Campus, Victoria

APRIL 18th LECTURE

Callum Abbott

“Lithic Technologies of the Discovery Islands: Materials, Stone Tool Production, and Communities of Skilled Practitioners.”

Abstract: I explore the findings of a diachronic analysis of three lithic assemblages from Quadra Island, British Columbia. From this, insights flow about the genealogy of technological practice of the people who inhabit the study area throughout its deep history as well as an emerging understanding of the reciprocal relationships between the makers of material culture and the things they make. This process of co-construction means they actively shape each other across time and space which has implications for communities of practice in the past as well as the present. Tracking the choices, movements, and gestures of the chaînes opératoires of stone tool production positions the (re)creation of embodied knowledge within the materially, environmentally, and socially-mediated world of learning and enskilment.

I use qualitative and quantitative methods to operationalize these theoretical foundations. These methodologies include: lithic artifact typologies, metric data analysis, X-Ray fluorescence, and thin section petrography. This constellation of method and theory weaves a narrative of technological change against a backdrop of technological continuity. Flexible (re)innovation of lithic technologies in tune with the rhythms of the landscape speaks to the sophisticated knowledge systems of the ancestral inhabitants of the study area and is part of what enabled many generations of people to thrive in this environment for millennia.

Bio: I am a graduate student in the Anthropology department at the University of Victoria specializing in coastal archaeology. The research presented here is a component of the Discovery Islands Landscape Archaeology (DILA) project. In addition to my academic focus, I am actively involved in several consulting archaeology projects in British Columbia. I currently work in the Nimpkish Valley of northern Vancouver Island (‘Namgis territory) as well as the central coast of BC (Heiltsuk territory). In the past, I have also worked as a consultant in the Interior of BC (where I grew up!). I enjoy the diversity of archaeology that takes place in this province and look forward to learning more about the fascinating histories of the people who have lived here since time immemorial.

The Archaeological Society meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month (Jan-May, Sept-Nov) at UVic’s Cornett building.

Description

An overlooked gem for Canadian Film Day!

VIOLENT

Director: Andrew Huculiak; Canada/Norway, 2014, 102 min, PG

This overlooked gem, the feature debut of Andrew Huculiak, drummer for Vancouver rockers We Are the City, won the Best B.C. Film and Best Canadian Film prizes at VIFF, earned eight of B.C.’s Leo Awards and was named to Canada’s Top Ten 2014. Made by Huculiak and his bandmates in Norway — and in Norwegian — this beautiful, mysterious work concerns Dagny (Dagny Backer Johnsen), a young woman who moves to the city to escape her small-town life. As she copes with a hinted-at catastrophe, Dagny recalls the five people in her life who have loved her the most. –The Cinematheque

Abstract

This research project explores ways in which place-based Indigenous perspectives can inform national park ‘visitor experience’ planning, management, and information delivery. Engaged in collaborative processes with Tseshaht First Nation, this project explores knowledge of Tseshaht-identified places of cultural significance in Tseshaht traditional territory, discussed in the context of creating a web-based digital map. In attempting to explore Nuu-chah-nulth-informed ways in which to more widely share cultural history and knowledge in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, I learned of the many dynamics that are revealed when the depth of Nuu-chah-nulth connections to place are made visible. This research project examines knowledge, power, and place in the context of Indigenous self-representation. Informed by Indigenous ways of knowing and Indigenous principles of knowledge-sharing, this thesis is an ethnography of knowledge-sharing in modern contexts fraught with issues of state power, commodification, and colonialism.

Film La journee du cinema canadien 2017-04-19 14:00:00
Description

L’Université de Victoria présente: La Journée du cinéma canadien 150

Ce programme inclus 360 degrés et Ta parole est en jeu : Les franco-nunavois suivis de Reel Injun (Hollywood et les indiens).

Hollywood et les indiens est un documentaire instructif sur la façon dont les peuples des Premières Nations ont été dépeints au cinéma, depuis l’ère du muet jusqu’à nos jours. Débordant d’extraits de centaines de films, et rempli d’entrevues avec des acteurs, des réalisateurs et des scénaristes célèbres, autochtones ou non, Hollywood et les indiens jette un regard divertissant et judicieux sur la manière dont le puissant média du cinéma reflète et influence la culture.

Le réalisateur Neil Diamond entraîne le public dans un voyage dans le temps pour explorer l’histoire des « Indiens d’Hollywood ». Il offre une analyse rafraîchissante, honnête et personnelle, montrant comment ces images cinématographiques ont façonné et influencé la compréhension de la culture et de l’histoire des peuples autochtones.

Lecture/Seminar The Rohingya Crisis and Beyond 2017-04-19 15:00:00
Description

Ethnic Conflict and Peace-Building in Myanmar: The rohingya Crisis and Beyond

Recent reports from Rakhine state in western Myanmar have triggered a debate about whether the government—or more specifically the military—is pursuing a strategy of genocide. Myanmar’s de facto leader, Aung San Su Kyi, denies these charges, claiming that the government is carrying out a counterinsurgency operation. The situation of the Rohingya in Rakhine state raises difficult questions about the relationship between the NLD-led government and the military, and the prospects of a broader peace deal that would encompass minorities in Myanmar’s north and northeast. This roundtable brings together a group of experts to shed light on these developments by considering the history of the ethnic conflict in Myanmar; the broader social and political context; legal issues around citizenship, dispossession, and statelessness; and the wider regional and international context.

Alliance Française de Victoria presents Emporte Moi

Summary:

Hanna (Vanasse) is an unhappy tomboyish teenager living in 1960s Montreal. Her erratic father and perpetually sick mother aren’t much help as she tries to navigate the tricky terrain of puberty. Feeling isolated and alone, Hannah seeks to escape in cinema, becoming fixated on the beautiful and freespirited Anna Karina in Jean-Luc Godard’s Vivre sa vie (My Life to Live).

As her home life deteriorates, the confused Hannah attempts to emulate her movie idol, making some poor and potentially dangerous decisions before finding a healthy way to express herself and cope with her world.

A touching coming-of-age story that won four Jutras for director Léa Pool.

Cast:Monique Mercure, Miki Manojlovic, Pascale Bussières, Karine Vanasse

 

Rating: NR

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-20 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 ELLE 2017-04-20 19:00:00
Description

APR 20    7:00 & 9:30

ELLE

Director: Paul Verhoeven

France, 2016, 132 min; French with subtitles; 18A – sexual violence; starring Isabelle Huppert

WINNER OF 2 GOLDEN GLOBES: BEST FOREIGN FILM & BEST ACTRESS!

The opening scene of “Elle” is a shocker: a brutal sexual assault filmed with pitiless detachment. Everything that follows is, in some ways, even more shocking, as the movie — a masterpiece of suave perversity, directed by Paul Verhoeven — leads its audience through a meticulously constructed maze of ambiguity, scrambling our assumptions and expectations at every turn. After it’s over, you may find yourself in an argument about just what kind of movie you saw. It’s a psychological thriller, a strangely dry-eyed melodrama, a kinky sex farce and, perhaps most provocatively, a savage comedy of bourgeois manners.

Mostly, though — inarguably, I would say — it is a platform for the astonishing, almost terrifying talent of Isabelle Huppert. Ms. Huppert, onscreen for virtually every second, gives “Elle” much of its fascination and most of its coherence. She has the unrivaled ability to fuse contradictory traits and actions into a singular, complex and endlessly interesting personality. The movie’s title is succinct and comprehensive. It’s all about her.

“Elle” is both an impeccably Gallic delicacy and a gleeful parody of Frenchness. –The New York Times

Director: Ann Marie Fleming; Canada, 2016, 90 min; rated G

The film’s superb voice cast includes Sandra Oh, Don McKellar and Ellen Page. --VIFF

“One of Canada’s most beloved animators is back with an extraordinary tale of art, history, and family.” –Toronto International Film Festival
