Lecture/Seminar Young Protesters in the Middle East (Forum and Drawing Exhibition) 2012-03-15 18:00:00

Three years after the rise of the Iranian Green movement and almost a year after the beginning of the Arab Spring, how are these movements viewed by those who are involved in these uprisings?

Join the UVic Centre for Global Studies and the Middle East Student's Dialogue Group to look at these social movements in the Middle East today from a different perspective that is not often told.

There is also an arts exhibition featuring works by Iranian cartoonists and drawings by Syrian children from refugee camps in Turkey.

The exhibition begins at 6pm, followed by the forum from 7-9pm.

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecture - Perplexing "I" 2012-03-15 19:30:00

Professor Beatrice Longueness
New York University

Perplexity at the role in thought and knowledge of the first person pronoun “I” dates at least as far back as Descartes’ celebrated argument “I think, therefore I am.” Philosophers sometimes propose the idea that in using “I” to refer to ourselves we manifest the fact that we are not just objects among other objects in the world, but also subjects of thought and action. But what might that mean? This lecture will draw on recent works in philosophy of language and mind, psychology and psychoanalysis to investigate different uses of “I” and their role in expressing human beings’ conception of themselves and their place in the world.

Film Once Upon A Time in Anatolia 2012-03-15 19:15:00

Director: Nuri Bilge Ceylan
Turkey, 2011, 150 minutes; Turkish with subtitles; Blu-ray
“A subtle, gorgeous and mysterious allegory.” –Salon
A metaphysical road movie about life, death and the limits of knowledge. It was directed by the Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan, whose earlier movies include “Distant” and “Three Monkeys” and who in recent years has emerged as one of the consistently most exciting directors on the international scene. His latest, which shared the grand prize at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, takes the unassuming form of a police investigation that, as miles and words mount, evolves into a plangent, visually stunning meditation on what it is to be human. The story is direct, if the journey less so. A man has been murdered, and a small battalion — a doctor, a prosecutor, a few policemen, several soldiers, diggers with shovels — has invaded the countryside with the suspect to dig up the body. The trouble is that the accused claims to have been drunk when he committed the murder and can’t remember where he buried the body. And so off the men go driving up and down the sensuous, rolling hills of Anatolia…The dead haunt “Once Upon a Time in Anatolia,” but so does beauty. ---The New York Times
