Film "The Summit" 2014-01-16 19:00:00

Director: Nick Ryan   Ireland/UK, 2013, 95 minutes

On August 1, 2008, 18 climbers out of a group of 31 managed to summit K2, the second-highest peak in the world and by many accounts the most treacherous. Only eleven of them would survive the descent. Four others died either ascending or during rescue operations, making it one of the deadliest episodes in mountaineering history. Exactly what happened that day in the Himalayas has been the source of confusion ever since, and it’s this tangled story that this gripping documentary seeks to unravel. Director Nick Ryan uses interviews with the survivors, footage shot during the climb, and stunningly realized recreations to provide an authoritative chronicle of the mismanagement, poor decisions and plain bad luck responsible. –Portland Oregonian

CSRS Public Lecture Series

The Voice in Your Head:  Monologues from the New Messiahs
Marita Dachsel, CSRS Artist-in-Residence, Writer

The Voice in Your Head is a series of monologues based on a mix of truth and fiction, historical fact and modern fabrication. An examination of the idea of the second-coming/Messiah in North American based religions, it explores questions of the role of faith. In particular, The Voice in Your Head explores especially in the embodiment of spiritual leaders, in relation to culture, history, and contemporary times, specifically in the voices of women who have been traditionally overlooked in mainstream religion. During this lecture, Marita Dachsel will read an excerpt from The Voice in Your Head and discuss the inspiration of the work, research, and creative process.

Marita Dachsel is the author of Glossolali, Eliza Roxcy Snow, and All Things Said & Done. Her poetry has been shortlisted for the Robert Kroetsch Award for Innovative Poetry and the ReLit Prize and has appeared in many literary journals and anthologies. Her play Initiation Trilogy was featured at the 2012 Vancouver International Writers Fest and was nominated for the Jessie Richardson Award for Outstanding New Script.

Lecture/Seminar CCCBE Speaker Series: Seeing Like a Sound?: Natural Resource Management and Property Rights in Clayoquot Sound 2014-01-16 16:00:00

CCCBE Speaker Series features Dr. Martin Bunton who will present:

Seeing Like a Sound?: Natural Resource Management and Property Rights in Clayoquot Sound

In 1993 Clayoquot Sound became a symbolic battle ground over the controversy of clear cutting. The area witnessed one of the largest acts of civil disobedience in Canadian history. By the end of the decade, however, First Nations, local communities, environmental groups, corporate interests and governments sought ways to tackle problems in a more participatory manner.

This presentation considers the recent shifts in resource management in Clayoquot Sound in light of the lessons learned from a growing interdisciplinary body of literature on common property regimes. This literature, much of which is based on case studies from around the world (e.g. Hanna, Folke and Maler 1996; Ostrom et.al. 2002), stresses the resilience of property rights institutions that are built to accommodate social and natural diversity, and at the same time recognize the complexity and fluidity of those social and natural environments. In the case of forestry in Clayoquot Sound, these questions are made all the more complicated both by the multiple number of conflicting interests that need balancing in our increasingly globalized world and by the positions and assertions invoked by an ongoing treaty settlement process that addresses political rights and social justice issues.

Dr. Martin Bunton is a Professor of History at the University of Victoria.
