Film Michael Fassbender in "Shame" 2012-03-22 19:10:00
Description

Director: Steve McQueen UK, 2011, 102 minutes; 18A
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan
“MESMERIZING!” –Variety
“A VISUAL AND SONIC SYMPHONY.” –Salon
Driven by a brilliant, ferocious performance by Michael Fassbender, Shame is a real walk on the wild side, a scorching look at a case of sexual addiction. Steve McQueen’s second feature, after his exceptional debut with Hunger, may ultimately prove too psychologically pat, but its dramatic and stylistic prowess provides a cinematic jolt. This sexually raw film will stir considerable excitement. McQueen wastes no time defining what drives Brandon (Fassbender), a 30ish New Yorker. With music employed to grandiose, sensual effect, he compulsively masturbates, eyes prey in the subway and manages to nail the sexy girl his boss had been fancying. Returning to his apartment, he is dismayed to find a wreck of a young woman in his bathroom. Sissy (Carey Mulligan) evidently wouldn’t be here if she had anywhere else to go. But she’s his sister…Fassbender is incredible, capping a year which has also done exceptional work in A Dangerous Method.. –The Hollywood Reporter

Lecture/Seminar Exploring the social as if it mattered: what it means to me to be a feminist scholar in the 21st century 2012-03-22 19:00:00
Description

Professor Dorothy E. Smith Adjunct Professor of Dept. of Sociology, UVic. Professor Emeritus, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto Dorothy Smith has made some of the most important contributions to sociology. Her writings on feminism, organizations, education, and Marx have been recognized by the American Sociological Association (Career of Distinguished Scholarship Award 1999), the Canadian Sociological Association (Outstanding Contribution Award 1990), and by the universities where she spent much of her career: the University of British Columbia and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. Since 1994 when she became adjunct professor in sociology here at UVic, Dorothy has made countless contributions to training and learning. She has enriched the department with her novel insights and helped to create yet another generation of critical scholars in Canada. Dorothy's tireless efforts to teach about institutional ethnography and feminist epistemologies have benefited students in our department and across the university. Indeed, students from across Canada come to attend Dorothy's seminars and teaching sessions. She has achieved something that very few sociologists ever do - she has changed the discipline while personally touching so many of us with her generosity and kindness. Dorothy has enriched our lives and our work.
