Film Victoria premiere! PAYBACK 2012-03-25 15:10:00
Description

PAYBACK
Director: Jennifer Baichwal Canada, 2012, 86 minutes. With Margaret Atwood, Karen Armstrong, Raj Patel, William Rees, Conrad Black
What is debt? In this cinematic philosophical inquiry inspired by Canadian author Margaret Atwood’s book Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth, several disparate notions of payback are explored and interwoven, from the “ecological debt” human beings owe to the planet to the “psychic debt” inherent in notions of revenge. Those expecting a straightforward documentary, with facts and figures, about economic debt crises or the inequities of the IMF should look elsewhere. Payback is a meditative, thoughtful exercise that’s far subtler.
Directed by Jennifer Baichwal, known for her stunning 2006 documentary Manufactured Landscapes, which examined environmental catastrophe through the work of artist Edward Burtynsky, Payback is similarly sophisticated, both visually and intellectually, taking on global issues through an artful lens.
But while the film is never short on beautiful big-screen images, from the haunting cells of a defunct 19th Century Penitentiary to the landscapes of the Albanian mountains, Payback is a limited item, more suited for the most art-house friendly of venues.
Loosely narrated by Atwood herself, seen typing on her computer and delivering her Payback lecture, Baichwal structures the film to keep the viewer on their toes.
Economic concerns underlie a number of the film’s issues (with a sprinkling of harsh capitalist critiques from ecologist William Rees and The Value of Nothing author Raj Patel). But Atwood and Baichwal are primarily interested in those debts that can’t be paid back with money. --Screen International

Lecture/Seminar Cafe Scientifique - "Throwing the baby off the balcony: New mothers' thoughts of infant-related harm" by Dr. Nichole Fairbrother 2012-03-27 18:30:00
Description

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

Description

PAYBACK
Director: Jennifer Baichwal Canada, 2012, 86 minutes. With Margaret Atwood, Karen Armstrong, Raj Patel, William Rees, Conrad Black
What is debt? In this cinematic philosophical inquiry inspired by Canadian author Margaret Atwood’s book Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth, several disparate notions of payback are explored and interwoven, from the “ecological debt” human beings owe to the planet to the “psychic debt” inherent in notions of revenge. Those expecting a straightforward documentary, with facts and figures, about economic debt crises or the inequities of the IMF should look elsewhere. Payback is a meditative, thoughtful exercise that’s far subtler.
Directed by Jennifer Baichwal, known for her stunning 2006 documentary Manufactured Landscapes, which examined environmental catastrophe through the work of artist Edward Burtynsky, Payback is similarly sophisticated, both visually and intellectually, taking on global issues through an artful lens.
But while the film is never short on beautiful big-screen images, from the haunting cells of a defunct 19th Century Penitentiary to the landscapes of the Albanian mountains, Payback is a limited item, more suited for the most art-house friendly of venues.
Loosely narrated by Atwood herself, seen typing on her computer and delivering her Payback lecture, Baichwal structures the film to keep the viewer on their toes.
Economic concerns underlie a number of the film’s issues (with a sprinkling of harsh capitalist critiques from ecologist William Rees and The Value of Nothing author Raj Patel). But Atwood and Baichwal are primarily interested in those debts that can’t be paid back with money. --Screen International

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Orientalists, Islamists and the Global Public Sphere 2012-03-28 16:30:00
Description

Centre for Studies in Religion and Society Public Lecture Series

Orientalists, Islamists and the Global Public Sphere
Dietrich Jung, CSRS Visiting Research Fellow
University of Southern Denmark

In light of ongoing debates that focus on the differences between Islam and the West, this presentation suggests a change of perspective by aiming to understand similarities. Beginning with the view shared by many Muslims and Westerners of Islam as an all-encompassing and unchanging cultural entity, the presentation will trace this interpretation of Islamic traditions back to the interaction among Islamic reformers, Western Orientalists and scholars of religion in the 19th century.

Dietrich Jung is a professor and head of the Center for Contemporary Middle East Studies at the University of Southern Denmark. He holds an MA in political science and Islamic studies, a PhD in political science from the University of Hamburg, and has extensive field experience in the Muslim world. He has published numerous scholarly articles on the causes of war; peace and conflict studies; political Islam; modern Turkey and on conflicts in the Middle East.

Description

PAYBACK
Director: Jennifer Baichwal Canada, 2012, 86 minutes. With Margaret Atwood, Karen Armstrong, Raj Patel, William Rees, Conrad Black
What is debt? In this cinematic philosophical inquiry inspired by Canadian author Margaret Atwood’s book Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth, several disparate notions of payback are explored and interwoven, from the “ecological debt” human beings owe to the planet to the “psychic debt” inherent in notions of revenge. Those expecting a straightforward documentary, with facts and figures, about economic debt crises or the inequities of the IMF should look elsewhere. Payback is a meditative, thoughtful exercise that’s far subtler.
Directed by Jennifer Baichwal, known for her stunning 2006 documentary Manufactured Landscapes, which examined environmental catastrophe through the work of artist Edward Burtynsky, Payback is similarly sophisticated, both visually and intellectually, taking on global issues through an artful lens.
But while the film is never short on beautiful big-screen images, from the haunting cells of a defunct 19th Century Penitentiary to the landscapes of the Albanian mountains, Payback is a limited item, more suited for the most art-house friendly of venues.
Loosely narrated by Atwood herself, seen typing on her computer and delivering her Payback lecture, Baichwal structures the film to keep the viewer on their toes.
Economic concerns underlie a number of the film’s issues (with a sprinkling of harsh capitalist critiques from ecologist William Rees and The Value of Nothing author Raj Patel). But Atwood and Baichwal are primarily interested in those debts that can’t be paid back with money. --Screen International

Description

Lexical Norms, Language Comprehension, and the Epistemology of Testimony

Endre Begby

Simon Fraser University
Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature (CSMN)

Abstract

In the burgeoning literature on the epistemology of testimony, it is remarkable how rarely focus is brought to bear on the role of language in mediating our testimonial activity. Language comprehension raises many complex epistemological questions in its own right. And if language is our primary medium for giving and taking testimony, it would seem that a full account of the epistemology of testimony must depend on a prior clarification of the epistemology of language comprehension.
One such account of the relation between the epistemology of language comprehension and the epistemology of testimony is found in Sanford Goldberg (2007). Goldberg argues that we could not be epistemically entitled to acquire beliefs on the basis of others’ testimony unless we were epistemically entitled to rely on our immediate and unreflective comprehension of what their utterances mean. In this sense, the epistemology of testimony is in part grounded in the epistemology of language comprehension. But what in turn grounds our entitlement to rely on immediate comprehension? Goldberg argues that “the only remotely plausible account” of our entitlement to language comprehension is that speakers and hearers of the same language share a set of semantic conventions taking the form of robust lexical norms. In brief, reflection on the epistemologies of language comprehension and testimony provides an abductive argument for the existence of lexical norms. Lexical norms offer an explanation – possibly the only explanation – of our entitlements to language comprehension and testimonial belief acquisition.
In the paper’s critical section, I argue that lexical norms – whether or not they exist – cannot play the explanatory role that Goldberg has in mind. What matters to the reliability of knowledge dissemination in language is how people actually use words, not how they ought to use them. In the paper’s positive section, I sketch out a different approach, according to which what goes wrong in arguments like Goldberg’s is the assumption that the epistemology of language comprehension can or must be clarified independently of the epistemology of testimony. I present various kinds of evidence which suggests instead that comprehension and testimony are epistemically interrelated: at a foundational level, to understand is to understand-as-true; conversely, what we understand an utterance as saying – even immediately and unreflectively – is not fully independent of what we are prepared to accept as true.

Lecture/Seminar Top-down vs Bottoms-up! Intermediate phenotypes for cognitive control and personality mediate the expression of dopamine genes in addiction 2012-03-30 15:00:00
Description

Speaker: Travis Baker

Can our genetic makeup predispose us to addiction? Using an intermediate phenotype approach − biological and psychological factors that are relatively proximal to genetic influence and that confer vulnerability to (rather than determine) psychopathology − we combined molecular genetics, electrophysiological and behavioral assays of the integrity of the midbrain dopamine system in humans, and tested the hypothesis that drug dependence results from the impact of disrupted dopamine signals on frontal brain areas that implement cognitive control and decision making: By acting on the abnormal reinforcement learning system of the genetically vulnerable, addictive drugs hijack the control system to reinforce maladaptive drug-taking behaviors. Our results highlight important neurobiological differences between dependent users that can inform the development of individually-tailored treatment programs.

Description

Centre for Studies in Religion and Society Presents
Reel Spirituality: A Film Series

The films in this series explore questions of morality, culture, the search for meaning and other themes arising from the human spiritual journey.
 
The Namesake
(Mira Nair, USA, 2006, 122 min.)

The Namesake is the story of the Ganguli family, whose move from Calcutta to New York evokes a lifelong balancing act to meld to a new world without forgetting the old. Though parents Ashoke and Ashima long for the family and culture that enveloped them in India, they take great pride in the opportunities their sacrifices have afforded their children. Paradoxically, their son Gogol is torn between finding his own unique identity without losing his heritage.
 

Screening will be followed by a brief moderated discussion with CSRS Associate Fellow Terence Marner.
