Film "The Broken Circle Breakdown" - ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM! 2014-01-23 19:00:00
Description

THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN

Director: Felix Van Groeningen   Belgium, 2012, 112 minutes; English & Flemish with subtitles

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE!  BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM!

The long-lasting love between a free-spirited tattoo artist and a gentle bluegrass musician is put to the test by tragedy in this passionate, multiple-award-winning romantic drama. When Elise (Veerle Baetens) meets banjo-playing bluegrass musician Didier (Johan Heldenbergh, author of the play on which the film is based), it's love at first sight, despite some considerable differences: he talks, she listens; he is a dedicated atheist (while at the same time a naïve romantic), while the cross tattooed on the back of her neck speaks to her quietly dedicated faith. Their lives quickly become inextricably intertwined as Elise starts singing in Didier's band, and the two soon have a beautiful little daughter, Maybelle; but when Maybelle falls critically ill after her sixth birthday, the seemingly inseparable bond between this perennial odd couple is put to the test. A passionate and moving love story scored to a glorious soundtrack of traditional and original bluegrass compositions (the film's soundtrack album was a bestseller in Belgium), The Broken Circle Breakdown was a box-office hit in its home country a festival favourite worldwide, winning awards at the Berlin and Tribeca film festivals. –Toronto International film Festival

Lecture/Seminar Dr. David Kennedy, "The'Works of the Old Men' in Arabia." 2014-01-23 19:30:00
Description

The Fifth Meeting of the 2013/2014 Academic Year will take place on Thursday January 23rd at 7:30 pm, in University Centre A180 (Senate Room).

Professor David Kennedy
Winthrop Professor
School of Humanities, University of Western Australia

will present a lecture entitled "The ‘Works of the Old Men’ in Arabia." Exploring and Mapping a Prehistoric Landscape from the Air and from Space.

Through the integration of aerial photography and high-resolution satellite imagery on virtual globes like Google Earth, the shapes and character of thousands of pre-Islamic stone structures, largely invisible from the ground, can now be traced. In this lecture, David Kennedy, Winthrop Professor at the University of Western Australia, will explain how an aerial reconaissance programme centred on Jordan is providing a rich dataset, revealing a cultural continuum across the huge and largely desert area encircled by the Fertile Crescent in the north and developments along the seaboard of the Arabian Peninsula in the south.

Other Pathways to Success: Professional Presentation Skills 2014-01-23 15:00:00
Description

This event is part of: Pathways to Success: Career and Professional Development for Graduate Students

Graduate students present in class all the time, but presenting your research to your peers, an academic committee or a conference group is a bit different. Sometimes, they know more than you do; sometimes, they know less. Sometimes they want to hear you, and sometimes they’d rather be sailing. How do great presenters get their material across successfully? They make the topic understandable, relate it to what the audience already knows and encourage feedback. Key points we will cover in this one-hour session include knowing your audience, preparing your materials and delivery and making it look effortless.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - The Guru-Sishya (Teacher-Student) Relationship in Sanskrit Scholarship 2014-01-23 16:30:00
Description

CSRS Public Lecture Series

The Guru-Sishya (Teacher-Student) Relationship in Sanskrit Scholarship
Harold Coward, CSRS Founding Director, Royal Society of Canada Fellow

Writing about the Hindu experience of guru as teacher and spiritual guide, Julius Lipner says, "Sometimes the guru just arrives; the guru seeks one out..."  In this lecture Harold Coward explores his experience of this happening as a PhD student with Prof. T.R.V. Murti. Coward will discuss the quite different kind of mentorship he received during Prof. Murti’s supervision of his thesis, their continuing relationship, its transforming influence on Coward’s life as a scholar, and its impact on his research and teaching.  Coward will compare this approach from traditional Sanskrit teaching (common in Hinduism and Buddhism) with that of modern scholarship.

Harold Coward is Founding Director of The Centre for Studies in Religion and Society and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.  A specialist in Indian Philosophy and Religion, he has authored numerous articles and books including: The Philosophy of the Grammarians; Derrida and Indian Philosophy; Hindu Ethics; Yoga and Psychology; and The Perfectibility of Human Nature in Eastern and Western Thought. His current research is on Powerful Words for Spiritual Practice in Hinduism and Buddhism.
