Film Like CRAZY 2012-02-26 15:00:00
Description

Director: Drake Doremus USA, 2011, 90 min; PG Cast: Felicity Jones,
A love story is both a physical and emotional tale, one that can be deeply personal and heartbreaking for an audience to experience. Drake Doremus' film Like Crazy beautifully illustrates how your first real love is as thrilling and blissful as it is devastating. When a British college student falls for her American classmate they embark on a passionate and life-changing journey only to be separated when she violates the terms of her visa. Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Picture at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and of the Special Jury Prize for Best Actress for Felicity Jones, Like Crazy depicts both the hopefulness and the heartbreak of love. --Paramount Vantage

Lecture/Seminar You Say Goodbye, We Say Hello! Robots, Theatre and the Future of Humanity 2012-02-28 19:00:00
Description

Brazil-based electronics artist and robotics researcher Zaven Paré and UVic Japanese theatre specialist Cody Poulton will discuss recent collaborations between playwright Oriza Hirata and roboticist Hiroshi Ishiguro in theatrical productions using robots and androids. One of Japan's leading dramatists and directors, Hirata is advisor to the Japanese cabinet on cultural and international affairs and recipient of the French Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

Both Hirata and Ishiguro are faculty members at Osaka University.
Paré and Poulton's presentation of Hirata and Ishiguro's work will include a screening of Hirata's short play Goodbye (Sayonara), featuring American actress Bryerly Long and Ishiguro's creation, Geminoid F.

Lecture/Seminar Archaeological Illustration for Beginners 2012-02-28 15:30:00
Description

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

Tuesday, February 28 & March 6
3:30 pm, Clearihue B415

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.

Film "A Better Life" - Academy Award Nominee for Best Actor! 2012-02-28 19:00:00
Description

Director: Chris Weitz USA, 2011, 98 min; PG
ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE! BEST ACTOR - Demián Bichir
The central figure of A Better Life is Carlos, a gardener played by Demián Bichir in a performance as modest and as epic as the movie he's in. Carlos is loving with the seedlings he transfers to his clients' yards. He is loving with his teenage son, Luis, who waves him off with attitude. Personally and professionally, Carlos is about getting transplants to root in new soil. He is a day laborer, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico. On its surface, Chris Weitz's movie is the odyssey of an undocumented worker's search for his stolen truck, a tale not unlike Vittorio de Sica's The Bicycle Thief in which father and son form a closer bond. Its deceptive simplicity makes A Better Life so emotionally profound. –Philadelphia Inquirer

Lecture/Seminar A Republic of Friends? Public demonstrations of friendship in late Renaissance and Facebook days 2012-02-28 16:30:00
Description

Dr. Hélène Cazes, Department of French
2011 Humanities Faculty Fellow

Is the Internet technology of virtual communication, where names are hung on Facebook “walls” for viewing (like trophies of accepted connections and recognized friendships) equivalent to renewing Renaissance vows for ideal learned communities of friends? Are public demonstrations of friendship as colleagues, acquaintances, and “fellows” share information, common places, networks, address books, and values a part of the global humanistic practice? The word “friend” would act, now and then, as an “open sesame” password for inclusion into an evergreen “Republic of Friends” which can be seen either as an imagined community of puzzled citizens or a gathering of deluded wishful thinkers. Hélène Cazes is an Associate Professor at UVic (Dept. of French, Humanities Diploma Program, and Medieval Studies Program) and is the 2011 Humanities Faculty Fellow. Her research and teaching interests encompass Humanism, History of Medicine, and cultural legacies.

Lecture/Seminar Cafe Scientifique - "Death, Dying and Palliative Care"by Dr. Kelli Stajduhar 2012-02-28 18:30:00
Description

This cafe is sponsored by The Centre on Aging at UVic. Cafe Scientifique is an informal seminar series hosted by the Centre for Biomedical Research that provides insight into health-related issues and general science topics of popular interest to the general public. These seminars are opportunities for the public to meet local researchers and discuss some of the most interesting and sometimes contentious research currently underway in Canada. The health related topics are co-funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) In a Cafe, we pull science away from its usual habitats of the classroom and the laboratory, and into, well,... a cafe or bar! A Cafe Scientifique is more informal and accessible than a public lecture. It is for people who are genuinely interested in science, but who don't have the opportunity to discuss their views with scientists. No previous scientific knowledge is required to participate. All you need is and a willingness to listen to others, to discuss, ask questions and express opinions. RSVP required cfbr@uvic.ca or 250-472-4067

Lecture/Seminar Visiting Artist program presents Lee Henderson 2012-02-29 20:00:00
Description

Prior to coming to the Writing Department at the University of Victoria last year, Lee
Henderson lived in Vancouver, where he made a living writing on the visual arts,
publishing fiction, and teaching creative writing at UBC. He has also lead writing
workshops for the Summer Literary Seminar in Montreal as well as at the Banff Centre
for the Arts, and with U of T's online writing program. Lee was raised on the prairies in
Saskatoon and Calgary but settled out west shortly after high school. Before making
books and stories, Lee made cookies, hamburgers, invoices, ad copy, and once, long ago,
made the animation for artist Tony Oursler's video for Sonic Youth's song 'Tunic;' and
once, even longer ago than that, played in a John Cage 'happening' at the Banff Centre.
Lee has published two award-winning books with Penguin Canada — the story collection
The Broken Record Technique and the novel The Man Game, which won the BC Book
Prize and the Vancouver Book Prize in 2009. His essay on language extinction and
corporate English was published in the anthology Finding the Words, edited by Jared
Bland. Lee's fiction and art writing is regularly published in The Walrus and Border
Crossings magazine, and other short stories have appeared in numerous magazines and
journals. He has curated exhibitions of contemporary art and experimental music.

Film TOMBOY 2012-02-29 19:15:00
Description

Director: Celine Sciamma France, 2011, 82 min; French with subtitles; DVD
The startling power of Tomboy, a beautiful, matter-of-fact French drama about a young girl who wants to be a boy — and for one singular summer around her 10th birthday passes as one — begins with the one-of-a-kind natural performance by Zoé Héran as Laure. Taking her family's move to a new neighborhood as a chance for reinvention, she introduces herself as Mikael, happily playing sports with the guys and even attracting a romance-minded girl (Jeanne Disson). Equally admirable in Céline Sciamma's hopeful drama: Laure's empathetic parents. –Entertainment Weekly A sensitive portrait of childhood just before pubescence—when bodies and identities are still fluid—Tomboy astutely explores the freedom, however brief, of being untethered to the highly rule-bound world of gender codes. –The Village Voice

Before making books and stories, Lee made cookies, hamburgers, invoices, ad copy, and once, long ago, made the animation for artist Tony Oursler's video for Sonic Youth's song 'Tunic;' and once, even longer ago than that, played in a John Cage 'happening' at the Banff Centre. Lee has published two award-winning books with Penguin Canada — the story collection The Broken Record Technique and the novel The Man Game, which won the BC Book Prize and the Vancouver Book Prize in 2009. His essay on language extinction and corporate English was published in the anthology Finding the Words, edited by Jared Bland. Lee's fiction and art writing is regularly published in The Walrus and Border Crossings magazine, and other short stories have appeared in numerous magazines and journals. He has curated exhibitions of contemporary art and experimental music.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Would the Discovery of Extra-Terrestrial Life Affect our Religious Beliefs? 2012-02-29 16:30:00
Description

Centre for Studies in Religion and Society Public Lecture Series

Would the Discovery of Extra-Terrestrial Life Affect our Religious Beliefs?
Alan Batten, Dominion Astrophysical Observatory (Retired)
Chair of CSRS Friends

Over a thousand planets are now known to exist within several hundred planetary systems. Although no planet resembling the Earth has yet been detected, one could be found very soon. This will attract much curiosity as to whether or not it supports life, and particularly intelligent life. Some believe that the discovery of such life would profoundly affect our religious beliefs. The speaker will examine the evidence for this claim.

Alan Batten, currently Chair of the Friends of the Centre, spent over half a century at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory here in Victoria. He has served as a vice-president of the International Astronomical Union and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1977. His most recent book, Our Enigmatic Universe: One Astronomer's Reflections on the Human Condition, was published by Melrose Books in June 2011.

Lecture/Seminar Distinguished Women Scholars Lecture 2012-03-01 19:00:00
Description

Dr. Paula Fass
Margaret Byrne Professor, University of California Berkeley
Distinguished Scholar in Residence, Department of History, Rutgers University

"The Child Centered Family: New Rules in Post World War II America"

Dr. Fass reexamines the notion that child-centeredness has dominated American family life since World War II. Instead, Fass argues that parents began to limit children's freedom in the 20th century, leading to the severe restrictions and intense supervisions of today. As schooling became the major path toward success, the ability for children to become independent early declined. In looking at how American thinkers tried to recreate the circumstances that would lead to autonomy, Fass shows how these efforts were doomed to failure.

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecture - Dr. Matthew O. Jackson 2012-03-01 19:00:00
Description

Social Networks and Economics: Lessons from Rural India

Professor Jackson is a leading economic theorist and pioneer in network theory. He is a Fellow of the Econometric Society, has written many articles, and has published the book "Social and Economic Networks". Social networks are important conduits of information: friends pass on both pure information and opinions. Issues discussed in this talk are: how participation in a microfinance program in small villages depends on which members are informed initially about the program; whether people only pass basic information or also pass opinions along; and whether non-participants play an important role in information diffusion. Beyond information passing, network patterns of favour exchange will also be discussed.

Lecture/Seminar The Brain as a Compressive Sensor 2012-03-01 All Day
Description

All are free to attend the Department of Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium.  Details below.

Speaker: Professor Patrick Gill (U. Toronto)

Title: Learning to Cope with Incomplete Sensory Data by Studying Neurons: The Brain as a Compressive Sensor

Abstract: One remarkable quality of sensory brain areas is their ability to persevere in the face of incomplete information. Our cochleas have damaged hair cells and our retinas have blind spots, yet our hearing and vision suffer minimally from substantial levels of damage and undercompleteness. What tricks are brains using to achieve this robustness?

I will present evidence that this robustness comes from a variant of a newly-discovered regularization trick called compressive sensing (CS). CS is the recovery of a compressible signal (sparse in some basis) from an undercomplete set of measurements in some other basis. When there are comfortably more measurements than the signal''s sparsity, CS yields a quickly-solvable convex optimization problem whose solution is the original signal.

The hypothesis that brains use CS has already lead me to invent a neuromimetic algorithm, the "in-crowd algorithm," that is the fastest solver for certain large CS problems resembling the type brains might encounter. I will present this algorithm and some of the problems it solves, then construct a case for how understanding CS can explain the physiology of the neurochemical acetylcholine in humans and its role in normal age-related cognitive decline. Finally, I will highlight some of the differences between CS as it currently stands and as it''s implemented in biology, with an eye to the possibility of mimicking more algorithmic good ideas based on brain architecture.

Film TOMBOY 2012-03-01 19:15:00
Description

Director: Celine Sciamma France, 2011, 82 min; French with subtitles; DVD
The startling power of Tomboy, a beautiful, matter-of-fact French drama about a young girl who wants to be a boy — and for one singular summer around her 10th birthday passes as one — begins with the one-of-a-kind natural performance by Zoé Héran as Laure. Taking her family's move to a new neighborhood as a chance for reinvention, she introduces herself as Mikael, happily playing sports with the guys and even attracting a romance-minded girl (Jeanne Disson). Equally admirable in Céline Sciamma's hopeful drama: Laure's empathetic parents. –Entertainment Weekly A sensitive portrait of childhood just before pubescence—when bodies and identities are still fluid—Tomboy astutely explores the freedom, however brief, of being untethered to the highly rule-bound world of gender codes. –The Village Voice

Director: Joel Heath Canada, 2011, 90 min; English Inuktitut with subtitles
WINNER! Environmental Film Audience Award – Vancouver International Film Festival
Utilizing astonishing time-lapse photography captured over seven years, Joel Heath illustrates how a traditional way of life is being ravaged by environmental change. On Hudson Bay's isolated Belcher Islands, the community of Sanikiluaq has long relied upon the eider duck and their down feathers (the warmest in the world) for survival. However, the runoff from nearby hydroelectric dams has resulted in an increasingly volatile ecosystem and triggered massive die-offs in the ducks. Feather certifies that ecologist-turned-documentarian Heath is a born filmmaker. –Vancouver International Film Festival

Lecture/Seminar The Eye of the Storm: The Story of An Elusive Executive Control Construct and the Attempts to Capture Its Soul 2012-03-02 15:00:00
Description

Speaker: Mauricio Garcia-Barrera, Dept. of Psychology, UVic
 

The elusive term "Executive Function (EF)" has remained controversial in neuropsychology, and sounded theoretical models that attempt to define it have failed during their validation efforts.  As an exception, parsimonious statistical approaches using latent variables have prevailed and succeeded to considerable extent. Dr. Garcia-Barrera proposed INTERACT, an extension of Miyake et al's (2000) three-component approach to examine EFs, in which the interactions between five specific executive systems permit the emergence of executive control. Therefore, EFs are defined theoretically not only as a series of unitary byproducts of these interactions, but also in terms of a diversity of distinguishable functional systems: problem representation, updating working memory, and attentional-, emotional- and inhibitory control. This presentation aims to introduce you to the derivation of such theory and to share the results of Jeff Frazer’s dissertation, a doctoral candidate in Psychology who examined INTERACT’s validity as a viable model of EF.
