Exhibit IN SESSION - ONE 2015-03-06 10:00
Description

January 17 to March 28, 2015

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes

Megan Dickie | Laura Dutton | d. bradley muir | Tara Nicholson

This is the first part of an on-going series of exhibitions over the next few years featuring the artists who work as Sessional Instructors in the UVic Visual Arts department. This exhibition looks at the recent practice of four artists who work with photography, video, and digital media arts. In Session - One celebrates the significance and power of photo-based art in an age where social media and advertising threaten to inundate and numb us with visual overload. These artists also investigate themes including the relationship between the photographic image and its physicality as an object, light as a material presence, and the time/space/memory relationship of digital media arts.

Lecture/Seminar Sailing the High Seas: Vikings and Other Travellers in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance 2015-03-06 17:00:00
Description

Dr. Richard W. Unger

History Department, University of British Columbia

 

Journeys between the fall of the Roman Empire and the seventeenth century were often by sea. Travel over water was always easier than over land and, more important through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance changes in ships and the organization of shipping made sea voyages faster and safer.  The improvements increased the scope of European travel. Thus Scandinavian sailors in the eighth century began a process of trading, raiding and exploring that would culminate in the round-the-world voyages in the Renaissance.  Vikings journeys were made possible by the new kinds of boats they used which also set the limits of their travels.

This is a Richard and Margaret Beck Trust Lecture

Conference Journeys through the Medieval and Renaissance Worlds 2015-03-06 23:00:00
Description

A conference organized by the students of Medieval Studies, the research collective Mardinalia and the program of Medieval Studies.

Travels of all types provide ways of understanding of the Middle Ages and Renaissance in terms of exchange, transformation, and knowledge.  By the word “travels,” we envision journeys of the mind, the body, and the spirit. The theme of the conference also includes time travel, mapping, historiography, migrations, nomadic cultures and people, movements of objects, inner journeys such as dream-visions, introspection or conversion, as well as cross-dressing, transgendering, exile, adoption etc.

On behalf of Mardinalia, the Medieval Studies Course Union, and the department of Medieval Studies of the University of Victoria, we are inviting students and scholars to sail with us for two days of papers and conversations.

 

NB This event has multiple locations. The Afternoon session and the keynote lecture are held on Friday in David Strong Building C 116. The Staurday is held in the Harry Hickman Building (105).

Film THE IMITATION GAME 2015-03-06 15:00:00
Description

THE IMITATION GAME

Director: Morten Tyldum; UK, 2014, 115 min; PG

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley

NOMINATED FOR 8 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE, BEST ACTOR: BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH, BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: KEIRA KNIGHTLEY, BEST SCREENPLAY, BEST DIRECTOR!

This is a highly simplified version of the highly complex life of proto-computer genius, World War II code breaker, and gay martyr Alan Turing — but even with all its distortions it tells a cracking good story. Turing is played with captivating strangeness by Benedict Cumberbatch. Turing insists that his machine will make fast work of the complex Nazi “Enigma” code. The film is true to the extraordinary friendship between Turing and Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley). –New York Magazine

FIVE STARS! THE BEST BRITISH FILM OF THE YEAR!” –The Independent
