Lecture/Seminar Looking for Work in Post-Socialist China 2012-03-06 12:30:00
Description

 Feng Xu recently published "Looking for Work in Post-Socialist China: Governance, Active Job Seekers and the New Chinese Labour Market". In this book she explores unemployment as one of the most politically explosive issues in China which gained further prominence as a result of the present global financial crisis. The novelty, urgency, and complexity of Chinese unemployment have compelled the government to experiment with policy initiatives that originate in the West. Xu argues that although China is not a liberal democracy, it has turned to neo-liberal forms of governance to deal with unemployment, which now function alongside pre-existing Chinese modes of governance. She examines the initiatives which represent China's attempt to institutionalize and humanize its approach to governance: these initiatives include training programmes; counselling; a web-based national labour-market information network; insurance; and using community (shequ) organizations as the base for new mechanisms of governance and informal job generation.

Feng Xu is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. She is the author of Women Migrant Workers in China's Economic Reform (2000).

Lecture/Seminar Archaeological Illustration for Beginners 2012-03-06 15:30:00
Description

G.R.S.C.U. invites you to attend

Tuesday February 28 & March 6,
3:30PM, in CLEB415

This workshop, spanning two weeks will introduce students to the basics of archaeological illustra-tion. Archaeological illustration is a useful skill for those interested in pursuing a career in archae-ology. As a specialized skill, students often receive little exposure to archaeological illustration until they participate on an archaeological project. This workshop is an excellent opportunity for students to learn a new skill, as well as learn more about a career in archaeology.

The instructor for the workshop will be Genevieve Hill. She holds a PhD in Archaeology from the University of Exeter and has participated in field projects in Canada, Greece, and the United King-dom. She has a wide range of experience in archaeological illustration, having worked not only with pottery, but also lithics and organic materials.

Questions regarding the workshop may be directed to trevvd@uvic.ca.

Co-founder of Toronto’s Turtle Gals Performance Ensemble and former artistic director of Native Earth Performing Arts, Mojica is also a member of the Chocolate Woman Collective, which follows the rigorous application of a creative process that privileges indigenous knowledges, cultural aesthetics and performance principles.

Other Deutscher Abend an der Uni 2012-03-06 19:30:00
Description

Marie Ulber, “Aktuelle Entwicklungen in der Architektur - Stimmungsvolle Räume in öffentlichen Bauten in Deutschland” (in German)

In public buildings, such as libraries or museums, spaces with reduced functionality and purity in character are transforming into spaces of safety, almost sacred. There is, moreover, a growing interest in the perception of these spaces. What are they for? And how do people feel in these nearly empty rooms?

Marie Ulber graduated in architecture at the Bauhaus-University Weimar and worked in the Swiss studio Degelo Architekten. She also worked as Assistant Professor at the Chair for Design and Theory of Building Types in the Faculty of Architecture and is presently pursuing a Ph.D. at the Faculty of Art and Design at the Bauhaus-University Weimar on the topic of landscape aesthetics.
