Film LA LA LAND 2017-04-02 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

“IT’S JUST GORGEOUS.” –NPR

“ONE OF THE YEAR’S BEST FILMS.” –Toronto Star

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-02 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.

Film PATERSON 2017-04-03 19:00:00
Description

PATERSON

Director: Jim Jarmusch; USA, 2016, 118 min; PG

A gem. Adam Driver stars as a bus-driving poet (or poetry-writing bus driver) in this Zen fugue from American director Jim Jarmusch. Driver has never been more in-the-moment. Paterson feels like the most intimate, heartfelt film from Jarmusch in a long while. It’s like a stone skipping across a pond, surprising us with widening ripples of revelation. It’s a one-of-a-kind, strangely moving film, and as close as cinema gets to pure poetry. --Maclean’s

ADAM DRIVER’S PERFORMANCE IS EXQUISITE. –Seattle Times

Jarmusch has actually remade "Groundhog Day" as a work of spiritual ecstasy.Boston Globe

A small miracle of a film, one that is both intellectually dazzling and emotionally provocative.San Francisco Chronicle

A LOVELY FABLE. –Time Out

Other Embrace Aging - focus groups 2017-04-04 14:00:00
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 Brand Breaker: Consumer Trust, and How it Makes (or Breaks) a Brand 2017-04-04 All Day
Description

 

Trust: it determines decisions we make in the grocery store, how we choose to travel, and the clothes we wear. It impacts what brands we recommend to our friends and where we choose to work, live, play – and study.

So what are the implications for brands and businesses?

Join us over breakfast as Dr. Saul Klein presents the 2016 findings of Gustavson’s Brand Trust Index, a survey showing how four different types of trust impact consumer perception and decision-making across Canada last year. Dr. Klein will draw on examples from the school to illustrate the power of these various types of trust.

Film SILENCE 2017-04-05 19:00:00
Description

SILENCE

Director: Martin Scorsese  USA, 2016, 161 min; English & Japanese with subtitles; 14A

Cast: Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Yōsuke Kubozuka, Liam Neeson

Set in the seventeenth century, two Portuguese priests, Rodrigues (Andrew Garfield) and Garrupe (Adam Driver), have heard rumors that their teacher and confessor, Father Ferreira (Liam Neeson), a missionary in Japan, has betrayed his Christian faith, and they travel to search for him. En route, they learn of the bloody persecution that Christians face in Japan, and when they’re smuggled into the country they, too, face the authorities’ wrath. Rodrigues is the protagonist of this picaresque epic of oppression and martyrdom. As he closes in on Ferreira the movie morphs into a spectacularly dramatic and bitterly ironic theatre of cruelty that both exalts and questions central Christian myths. It plays like Martin Scorsese’s own searing confession. –The New Yorker

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 Social Dimensions of Health Conference 2017-04-06 All Day
Description

We’re inviting you to participate in UVIC’s second, semi-annual Social Dimensions of Health (SDH) Student Conference, scheduled for April 6, 2017

The theme for the 2017 conference is:
Connecting Health Across Topics (Let's CHAT)

In 2015, University of Victoria’s Social Dimensions of Health program hosted its first student conference with over 40 members in attendance. Building on these students’ momentum, in 2017, the current SDH students hope to create a tradition of student interdisciplinary healthy inquiry with a second semi-annual conference to be held on April 6, 2017. 

The SDH Student Conference is an important opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as community partners and members, to gather together, showcase their research and/or community engagement and discuss the intersections of health within all disciplines. We will be inviting students and community members from across BC to join us in what we hope will be a rich day of mutual learning and idea sharing. It is our sense that this student conference has immense potential for growth and to become an important voice for the Western Canadian health-concerned student community.

Lecture/Seminar Building and Sustaining Interdisciplinary Studies on Campus 2017-04-06 15:30:00
Description

Presented by the Office of Interdisciplinary Academic Programs

Distinguished Women Scholar Dr. Julie Thompson Klein is Professor of Humanities Emerita in the English Department and Faculty Fellow for Interdisciplinary Development at Wayne State University.

Interdisciplinarity has been embraced as central to complex societies and the modern university, yet its implementation remains illusive. Many structural constraints exist, competing with demands for new cross-disciplinary approaches. Dr. Julie Klein, Distinguished Women Scholar for 2016 will explore this complex terrain and engage us in a critical conversation about how internationalization, intersectionality and socio-political forces offer new trajectories for imagining disciplinary knowledges.

Dr. Klein is author of Creating Interdisciplinary Campus Cultures and numerous other publications that have been instrumental in defining the field of interdisciplinary teaching and learning across North America and around the globe.

Sponsored by the Provost’s Distinguished Women Scholars Committee.

Conference En-gendering Social Transformation in China 2017-04-07 All Day
Description

 

En-gendering Social Transformation in China: Gender Dynamics, Women's Rights and Feminist Activism

Women, as in the rest of the world, make up roughly half China’s total population, but receive  far less academic attention and scrutiny. Particularly overlooked is their dynamic role in engendering the social transformation taking place in China since the late 70s. This symposium attempts to address this often-ignored aspect of China’s transformation, namely: how do women act as initiators, mobilizers and driving forces of social transformation?

This symposium will bring together leading scholars and activists on women and gender studies presenting up-to-date research on gender issues of China; exploring how gender relations in China are profoundly involved in globalization; how women’s struggle to gain rights has changed; and how increasing feminist activism engenders wider social transformation in China.

Running along side the Symposium is a photo exhibition “40 Moments: Chinese Young Feminist in Action” prepared by Young Feminist Activism, a NGO from China with an mandate for “emphasis on self-determination, direct action and media publicity” in promoting gender equality. The exhibition will display photos that record historically significant moments of social/self-transformation of China in gender and feminist perspectives.

Lecture/Seminar ?Brexit, Right Wing Populism, Migration: The Re-Bordering of Europe from a Border Region Perspective? with Dr. Martin Klatt 2017-04-07 12:00:00
Description

“Brexit, Right Wing Populism, Migration:

The Re-Bordering of Europe from a Border Region Perspective”

with Dr. Martin Klatt

 

WHEN: Friday, April 7th
TIME: 12:00pm
WHERE: DAVID TURPIN BUILDING A110

 

DETAILS: The EU seems to be in crisis. The year 2015 demonstrated that It has not been able to jointly tackle the issue of mass migration, 2016 brought the BREXIT, and right wing parties have been on the advance in many European countries. It’s relation to Russia and Turkey is strained, and US president Trump has openly stated that he preferred the EU to dissolve. On the ground, re-bordering is implemented on several internal and external borders, and discussed on others. Martin Klatt, associate professor at the Centre of Border Region Studies of University of Southern Denmark will discuss these developments and how they have affected EU-ropean border regions, where regional actors have strived for de-bordering, cooperation and increasing cross-border integration in the past 20-30 years.

HIDDEN FIGURES

Director: Theodore Melfi; USA, 2016, 127 min; PG

This exuberant, inspiring drama tells the fact-based story of three black women who strove for upward mobility as NASA mathematicians during the JFK era. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae star as the "human computers," who use their prodigious number skills to help calculate the trajectories for the Mercury Seven astronauts and their street smarts to negotiate humiliating workplace hurdles. The excellent leads get robust support from Jim Parsons, Kirsten Dunst, Mahershala Ali, and Kevin Costner. –Chicago Reader

Director: Eric Summer; France/Canada, 2016, 90 min; rated G

In this lushly animated tale, 11-year-old orphan, Félicie (Elle Fanning) has one dream - to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend Victor (Nat Wolff) has a dream of his own, to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. “There's plenty of visual whimsy in the late-19th-century setting - the animators render a gorgeous Paris - while enthusiastic dance sequences and comic beats balance out melodrama.”—Toronto Star

Exhibit Excavating Royal Jubilee: A Pop-Up Exhibit 2017-04-08 11:00:00
Description

Event: Excavating Royal Jubilee: A Pop-Up Exhibit

Location: Community Room, Royal BC Museum

Date: April 8th, 2017

Time: 11am-2pm

Cost: Free! (located off main lobby, no paid admission required though you can certainly make a day of it and go to see the rest of the exhibits at the RBCM!)

 

Description:  The Royal Jubilee Hospital archaeological collection housed at the Royal BC Museum captures a rare glimpse into the dynamic world of 1890s Victoria. Planned to be the jewel of the burgeoning city, the hospital combined cutting-edge healthcare with the first nursing school west of Winnipeg. With paid and unpaid wards, it also came to serve a diverse community. This history is captured in the artifacts that were excavated from the site in the 1990s, from ‘modern’ medical treatments like opium bottles and mercury syringes, to children’s toys and fine porcelain from Japan. This exhibit aims to demonstrate the value of historical archaeology by telling the stories of nurses, doctors, and patients through objects. The students from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Victoria will host interactive and hands-on activities to engage audiences of all ages in thinking about where in the world medicines, food and belongings came from and how they got to Victoria, and contrast seemingly familiar products like toothpaste with their very foreign historic recipes. The results of their research will also be available following the event through a RBCM Learning Portal playlist, using digital media to connect objects, archives and stories reflecting the captivating history of the Royal Jubilee hospital.

Film HIDDEN FIGURES 2017-04-08 15:00:00
Description

HIDDEN FIGURES

Director: Theodore Melfi; USA, 2016, 127 min; PG

This exuberant, inspiring drama tells the fact-based story of three black women who strove for upward mobility as NASA mathematicians during the JFK era. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae star as the "human computers," who use their prodigious number skills to help calculate the trajectories for the Mercury Seven astronauts and their street smarts to negotiate humiliating workplace hurdles. The excellent leads get robust support from Jim Parsons, Kirsten Dunst, Mahershala Ali, and Kevin Costner. –Chicago Reader

Conference En-gendering Social Transformation in China 2017-04-08 All Day
Description

 

En-gendering Social Transformation in China: Gender Dynamics, Women's Rights and Feminist Activism

Women, as in the rest of the world, make up roughly half China’s total population, but receive  far less academic attention and scrutiny. Particularly overlooked is their dynamic role in engendering the social transformation taking place in China since the late 70s. This symposium attempts to address this often-ignored aspect of China’s transformation, namely: how do women act as initiators, mobilizers and driving forces of social transformation?

This symposium will bring together leading scholars and activists on women and gender studies presenting up-to-date research on gender issues of China; exploring how gender relations in China are profoundly involved in globalization; how women’s struggle to gain rights has changed; and how increasing feminist activism engenders wider social transformation in China.

Running along side the Symposium is a photo exhibition “40 Moments: Chinese Young Feminist in Action” prepared by Young Feminist Activism, a NGO from China with an mandate for “emphasis on self-determination, direct action and media publicity” in promoting gender equality. The exhibition will display photos that record historically significant moments of social/self-transformation of China in gender and feminist perspectives.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-08 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.
