Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-11-27 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Help solve the History Mystery!

Lecture/Seminar AHVS Lecture Series: From Ithaca to Number 31328: Greek Literature of the First World War 2014-11-27 16:30:00
Description

Cultures of the First World War
This lecture series has been This lecture series has been organized by the Department of Art History and Visual Studies. The speakers will reflect upon dimensions of the arts, intellectual activities, and political life in countries involved in the ‘Great War.’

From Ithaca to Number 31328: Greek Literature of the First World War
Evanthia Baboula, Department of Art History and Visual Studies (UVIC)

The First World War for Greece was only part of a series of conflicts that opened with the Balkan Wars in 1911 and ended with the creation of modern Turkey in 1923. Starting from an unknown gem in UVic’s library collection, the speaker will discuss how the literature of that period does more than reflect on the Greek participation in the Great War. It has left a heavy legacy by reflecting the ebbs and flows of national sentiment, the tragedies of loss and triumphs of survival.

Film "The Green Prince" 2014-11-27 19:00:00
Description

THE GREEN PRINCE

Director: Nadav Schirman; Germany/USA/UK, 2014, 101 min; PG

Nadav Schirman's terrific double-dealing documentary tells the story of Mosab Yousef, the cherished son of Palestinian and Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, who agrees to spy on his father for the Israeli secret service. Mosab insists that he is motivated by disillusion with Hamas, and by a desire to bring peace to the region, although it is clear that he's also excited by the subterfuge. The deeper he goes the more his loyalties become tangled. He becomes the link between Hamas and Shin Bet, playing both sides off against one another. Mosab sells his father down the river in a last-ditch attempt to keep him out of harm's way, reasoning that he will be safer in jail than on the streets of Ramallah. Schirman's film is as gripping as any high-concept Hollywood thriller and as psychologically knotty as Greek tragedy.  --The Guardian

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-11-27 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated by lessLIE

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

In this exhibition the theme of perpetuation unifies the work of five contemporary Coast Salish artists who live and work in this region. The word perpetuation is meant to suggest a continuum of ideas and processes, which come from distinctive traditions that have existed over millennia. Perpetuation also infers some of the challenges that contemporary Coast Salish artists continue to face in the contexts of colonialism and assimilation as well as the dominance of other Indigenous traditions, which were often favoured by the art world, in both commercial and educational contexts. It is only in the last three decades that Coast Salish art has become more readily recognized by a wider audience as distinct from other Northwest Coast traditions.

This exhibition presents a wide range of art forms and ideas, and visitors will gain a better understanding of the cultural and stylistic elements that unify and inspire these contemporary artists in their own artistic practices. Artists featured are Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, John Marston, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS EUCE Lecture - New Centers of Islamic Theology at Universities in the EU: The German Case 2014-11-27 17:00:00
Description

Growing numbers of Muslim citizens in Europe have caused many institutions of higher education in the EU to re-examine how religious instruction is organized in their countries. The models vary widely from one country to the next depending on the ways secularism is understood.  Germany’s “partial secularism” represents a particularly interesting case in this regard. Since its public schools include religious instruction for Catholic and Protestant Christians, the decision was made to extend this privilege to Muslim children as well, which in turn required the establishment of teacher training centers. Four Centers for Islamic Theology at German universities were opened in 2011/2012. Monique Scheer will discuss this new development and compare it to other cases in the EU. In particular, she will examine the hopes and fears these new centers of learning evoke, and what their establishment says about the challenges presented by shifting religious demographics in the EU.

Professor Scheer is the author of numerous books, most recently Emotional Lexicons: Continuity and Change in the Vocabulary of Feeling 1700–2000 (with Ute Frevert et al.). New York: Oxford University Press, 2014; and Unholy Feelings: Questioning Evangelical Emotions in Wilhelmine Germany (with Bettina Hitzer), in: German History (and co-editor of themed issue “Faith and Feeling”, in press).

Description

Outstanding faculty are the foundation of the University’s success.  The title University of Victoria Distinguished Professor is the highest academic honour that the university can bestow on a member of faculty.  This lecture series offers the community the opportunity to hear and meet the recipient of the Distinguished Professor Award.

Dr. A. R. Elangovan 3M National Teaching Fellow, Gustavson School of Business, University of Victoria

Authenticity at work: doing what you love, loving what you do

Our work occupies a significant portion of our time in daily life, plays a key role in how we define and identify ourselves, and shapes our life stories. Not surprisingly, our experiences at work have a major impact on our wellbeing and fulfillment in our personal lives as well. But we all have different perspectives towards our work—for some of us it is just a job, for others it is a career, and for some it is a calling. Being engaged in our calling offers a sense of meaning, purpose and authenticity that has a profound impact on our level of engagement, passion and satisfaction at work. We will explore what it means to have authenticity at work and the factors that play a role in discovering one’s calling.

 Thursday, 27 November, 7–8 p.m.
