Film My Week with MARILYN 2012-03-11 15:00:00
Description

Director: Simon Curtis UK/USA, 2011, 98 min; PG Cast: Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne, Judi Dench, Julia Ormond
NOMINATED FOR 2 ACADEMY AWARDS: BEST ACTRESS – MICHELLE WILLIAMS & BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR – KENNETH BRANAGH
Yes, Michelle Williams can play Marilyn Monroe. She has the walk, the sexual sweetness, and the hurt, lost look. This charming and touching Anglo-American production is based on two memoirs by Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), a young man who, though a family connection, became Laurence Olivier’s assistant in 1956, when Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) was directing and acting in “The Prince and the Showgirl”. Marilyn, paralyzed with nerves, turns up on the set hours late, blows her lines, and generally exasperates Olivier. Young Colin tries to keep the show together. The movie is an amused reflection on different varieties of acting and of show-business temperament. –The New Yorker

Lecture/Seminar Social Justice Studies Conversations with Activists 2012 Part 3 - Resisting Political Violence, Torture & the Death Penalty: Connections and discernments in anti-violence activism and work. 2012-03-13 19:30:00
Description

As anti-violence activists in our paid and unpaid work it is important to be able to hold an anti-oppression stance that addresses oppressive practices of violence - but it is also important that all violence isn't conflated in this work. In this talk Vikki will differentiate human rights and social justice, which are connected but very different projects. We'll look at torture and political violence, as understood by the UN and explore why it is important to hold these acts separate from other forms of politicalized violence, such as a rape culture. Often language obscures more than it reveals, and conflating government sanctioned violence with other violence can result in dismissive, mutualizing and impotent responses to acts of violence by the state and governments. At the same time, seeing rape as outside of politicalized violence is also problematic. As activists how can we be most effective in taking on oppression on all fronts? Vikki will take a run at all of these questions, while outlining the need for a position against all state sanctioned executions and torture. About Vikki Reynolds: Vikki is a therapist/activist whose experience includes clinical supervision and therapy with refugees and survivors of torture, mental health and substance abuse counsellors, anti-violence counsellors, and working alongside transgendered and queer communities. Vikki has been the Therapeutic Supervisor of Peak House since 2002,and was a Family Therapist at Peak for many years. Vikki's published work addresses social justice, sustainability, ethics, and trauma. She is an Instructor with VCC, UBC and City University where she received the Deans Award for Distinguished Instruction. UVicSJS on Facebook and Twitter

Lecture/Seminar Dr. Orson L Moritz: The mechanisms of light-exacerbated photoreceptor cell death in retinitis pigmentosa 2012-03-14 14:30:00
Description

Retinitis pigmentosa is genetically heterogenous, with many different mutations in different genes involved. Within the rhodopsin gene, over 100 different mutations have been implicated in retinitis pigmentosa or related disorders. One of our goals is to determine whether these diverse mutations cause disease by identical or different mechanisms. This will help us to design therapies for retinitis pigmentosa, and will allow us to determine which RP patients could be treated by a single therapy.

Lecture/Seminar "Science As I've Seen It" by Bob McDonald 2012-03-14 19:00:00
Description

The Faculty of Science presents the
AXYS Group Distinguished Speakers Series

Riding in a Zero-G airplane, descending to the depths of the Earth, peering into the mouth of a volcano, and meeting people who have been to the moon has provided Bob McDonald with a unique perspective on how science, particularly Canadian science, sees the world.

In this illustrated presentation meant for the layperson “Science as I’ve Seen It”, Dr. McDonald will share his personal journey to the edge of the universe and back with a perspective on our unique and very special place, tiny planet Earth. Humans have spent two thousand years discovering what our planet looks like - Now science is teaching us how it operates and points the way to successfully surviving our own future.

One of Canada’s best-known presenters and authors, Dr. McDonald has been hosting the CBC radio show Quirks & Quarks since 1992. His previous role as host of CBC-TV children’s program Wonderstruck inspired his books Wonderstruck I and Wonderstruck II. In 2000, he authored Measuring the Earth with a Stick: Science as I’ve Seen it as a collection of essays recounting his experiences as a science journalist.

Dr. McDonald has received numerous awards for his contributions to science including being named an Officer of the Order of Canada in November 2011 and has received six honorary degrees from Universities across Canada. He continues to inspire scientific curiosity internationally through television, radio, print, and live presentations.

Lecture/Seminar Two Centuries of Demographic Change in Canada 2012-03-14 14:30:00
Description

Barry Edmonston, Research Professor Department of Sociology, UVic Abstract: One key aspect of the demographic transition is the shift from high mortality and high fertility to low mortality and low fertility, leading to rapid population growth. Population growth also occurs because of population momentum when younger age structures associated with high fertility ensure continued growth long after fertility falls to replacement levels. More recently, demographers have noted that older age distributions associated with fertility levels below replacement have negative population momentum. That is, populations such as Germany and Japan will continue to decrease in the future even if they had replacement level fertility immediately. Although the demographic transition has been well-described for many countries, demographers have not yet analyzed population momentum as a dynamic process that is affected by changes in vital rates and, in turn, influences future changes in population growth and size. This presentation uses new data and methods to analyze population momentum across two centuries of demographic change in Canada. It discusses the arc of population momentum over time for Canada, illustrating the key trends in vital rates from 1851 to 2061, and how they will influence Canada's population change in coming years.

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

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Land, Law and Religion in British Colonial Palestine 2012-03-14 16:30:00
Description

Centre for Studies in Religion and Society Public Lecture Series

Land, Law and Religion in British Colonial Palestine
Martin Hoffman
CSRS Vandekerkhove Graduate Student Fellow
Department of History, UVic

Scholars of the British Mandate in Palestine (1917-1948) tend to describe it in terms of religious and cultural conflict. They focus on the growing tension between the Jewish and Palestinian Arab communities in an attempt to explain the outcome of the 1948 war and the subsequent Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Through a detailed study of a controversial court case, Martin Hoffman’s research complicates this picture by examining the lives and motivations of the major participants, who did not always act in the ways we might expect.

Martin is in his second year of a MA in history. He received his BA from McGill, where he majored in Middle East studies and history. Most of his research has focused on the history of the modern Middle East. However, since beginning his studies at UVic, he has also become interested in the early history of British Columbia, as he finds it makes an interesting comparison.

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

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.

Lecture/Seminar Kant's 'I' in "I ought to" and Freud's Super-Ego 2012-03-16 14:30:00
Description

University of Victoria Philosophy Colloquium

Professor Beatrice Longuenesse
New York University

There are striking structural similarities between Freud’s “ego” and Kant’s “transcendental unity of apperception,” which for Kant grounds our use of “I” in “I think.” There are also striking similarities between Freud’s “superego” and Kant’s account of the mental structure that grounds our use of “I” in the moral “I ought to.” The paper explores the latter on three main points: the conflict of motivations internal to the mind, the relation between discursive and pre-discursive representation of moral motivation, the unconscious character of moral motivation. The suggestion is that Freud offers resources for a naturalized account (an account in terms of the causal development of empirical human beings) of just those features of our moral motivation that, according to Kant, seem to make it least amenable to a naturalistic explanation.

Intense research interest over the past decade has yielded diverse and often discrepant theories about the function of anterior cingulate cortex (ACC). In particular, a dichotomy has emerged between neuropsychological theories suggesting a primary role for ACC in motivating or “energizing” behavior, and neuroimaging-inspired theories emphasizing its contribution to cognitive control and reinforcement learning. To reconcile these views, I will propose that ACC supports the selection and maintenance of “options” – extended, context-specific sequences of behavior directed toward particular goals – that are learned through a process of hierarchical reinforcement learning. This theory accounts for ACC activity in relation to learning and control while simultaneously explaining the effects of ACC damage as disrupting the motivational context supporting the production of goal-directed action sequences.

Lecture/Seminar Environmental Geopolitics in the 21st Century 2012-03-16 14:45:00
Description

Environmental Geopolitics in the 21st Century

Lecture by Simon Dalby, Carleton University

For the past quarter of a century, environmental security has been on both the academic and policy agendas.  Lack of clarity concerning which danger to what societies mattered most marked the discussion.  Critical voices have long warned that simplistic assumptions of environmental change leading directly to conflict are misleading at best, and dangerous at worst.  Violence is often related to resource abundance rather than to scarcitiies, so great care has had to be taken in linking environmental change to conflict and subsequently devising useful policy responses in particular places.

In the last few years, climate change has added a growing urgency to discussions of environmental security, and increasingly refocused matters in terms of "climate security."  This has complicated both the academic and policy pictures very considerably.  While some of the lessons of the earlier discussion have continued relevance, and in particular in response to extreme events, climate security themes have to engage directly with global environmental change, and with earth systems science in particular.  Doing so requires a shift in focus from some of the early formulations of environmental security.

Now it seems that climate security in the long run is not a matter of environmental change causing political difficulties, but rather a matter of contemporary political difficulties causing accelerating climate change.  This has major implications for how we understand global security, and the role of the military in particular, in these new circumstances.  But the urgency of dealing with climate change means that these matters need much further careful attention from both academic and security analysts.

“AN ABSOLUTE DELIGHT!” –Austin Chronicle
Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, and his friends discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for oil. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter and friends help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a casino tribute band, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.

Conference Visualizing Antiquity 2012-03-17 All Day
Description

For more than 1,500 years, the civilizations of Classical Greece and Rome have inspired scholars, artists and activists from all disciplines and walks of life. Greco-Roman culture has many heirs and interpreters, not only in Western European culture, but in the Islamic world and Central and East Asia. Today, popular interest in Classical myth, drama, and history continues to grow, not just in the West, but in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and South America. "Visualizing Antiquity" will explore the ways in which scholars and artists, past and present, have constructed their visions of the ancient world.
