COVER STORY: Humanities studies
“I feel like there is a whole part of the world that opened up to me,” Small says. “Now

it’s not just recognizing names of battles, now I know something about it.”
So what is Small doing in the Humanities Diploma Program? Being over 40, she ﬁts the proﬁle of many of the people taking courses in history, classical traditions, literature, language and philosophy. But those enrolled all have their own reasons for studying the humanities. Working in the science and technology ﬁeld every day, “I wanted to challenge the other side of my brain,” Small says. With her children grown and out of the nest, Small wanted a new challenge beyond her full-time job. “I don’t need a degree or a diploma to put on my wall. It’s what I get out of it for my own ediﬁcation.” After an introductory course in humanities, Small ﬁnished a two-term History of Modern Europe course—the content covering 500 years. Although never interested in taking a history course before, it awakened a thirst for a knowledge of the past that she never knew she had.
In addition to that, Small would love to revisit some of the sites she saw on a European back-packing trip some two decades ago. “A certain amount of it was lost on me (historically). I would love to go back and see it through new eyes.” A ﬁt, energetic, people person, Small also Students can take up to six years to ﬁnish the Humanities Diploma program and it is limited to 30 students a year.

The Division of Continuing Studies goes far beyond merely serving the academically curious on campus, says one life-long learner.
“I think it’s a hugely important venue with long-term consequences for the community,” says John Olafson, a retired military man, who has attended dozens of free lectures and signed up for many other courses.
However, some seniors prefer to stay closer to home, he says. With that in mind, instructors often go into the community with a series of free lunchtime lectures offered at Victoria’s Central Library, courses at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney and at other places around the island.
“It’s like my vacation. This is food for the brain in a big way.”

Growing new interests
Before enrolling in the Restoration of Natural Systems program, Kristina Coleman hadn’t paid much attention to the natural world around her. “I didn’t know anything about plants at the time,” Coleman says with a laugh. That was then. She can now identify dozens, thanks to her program which focuses on environmental restoration. That new knowledge certainly came in handy as she, along with Louise Goulet, a noted wildlife biologist, designed a native plant garden at Gulf Islands National Park headquarters in Sidney. “There were no native species in that garden. We took out everything but the trees,” Coleman says. By Coleman’s count, there are some 700 species in the garden: tiger lilies to camas and Siberian miners’ lettuce. Although she knew Parks Canada wanted to redesign the site, she had little idea that her project would be accepted. Nor did she know that her intensive ﬁve-day Field Study course would turn into months of paid work that counted toward her course mark and will stand out on her CV should she ever be looking for work. “That’s the beauty of this program is how much real-world application there is. This program also allows you to make contacts in the real world. I was so excited and so freaked out at the same time,” she said. Like many in her program, Coleman works full time and is ﬁve courses into the 12-course program. As a chemist, her day job is

analyzing data for an environmental laboratory in Sidney. “I wanted to know more about the environment and systems and how it all ﬁts together,” she says. “I thought this program would be a little ﬂaky, like maybe it won’t be anything I can use (in life or work). But it deﬁnitely is.” For instance, Coleman had met Goulet, the biologist, while researching a project for another course. Coleman gives full

Painting Today: Part 1 This slide–lecture series examines diﬀerent approaches to painting used by contemporary artists. Drawing on existing notions such as portraiture, history painting, abstraction and landscape, our survey examines both the ways in which painting continues to refer back to its varied histories while at the same time interacting with other approaches to art making such as video, photography, installation and performance art. A lively, energetic conversation for those curious about the past, present and future of the medium. Note: A continuation of this course will take place in the spring 2011 term. Instructor: John Luna, VCA, MFA
The Arts HISTORY IN ART The Art, Architecture and Design of Ancient Rome Roman art, architecture and design were bold, imaginative and innovative, particularly in public works. Art produced for private patrons sometimes tended to be classicizing and conservative. At the zenith of its empire, Rome’s art incorporated styles from all of its far-ﬂung colonies. This exciting mix will form the basis of this course, which will begin with Rome’s earliest predecessors and end with the decline of its empire in the ﬁfth and sixth centuries CE.

British Columbia Art History: Emily Carr and First Nations In this course we will focus on Emily Carr’s early years in Coast Salish lands and her subsequent travels to various First Nations villages in British Columbia. These sketching trips ranged from 1899 with her ﬁrst trip to Ucluelet through the highly proliﬁc years of 1912 and 1928 with trips to Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands) and the Skeena River, Nass River and Gitanyow areas. The sketches, paintings and writings from these journeys will be explored. We will also examine the prodigious artistic expression of the First Nations groups whose totems and cultures both fascinated Carr all her life and stimulated her to create a large body of work on the theme of First Nations cultures.

No previous musical experience is needed to beneﬁt from this course.
World Vocal Music This series of eight workshops oﬀers an opportunity to explore four varied world ethnic singing styles: from the hearty and ultra-bright Bulgarian “hard voice” to the equally powerful, but darker and more sonorous Georgian timbre; from the rich, melliﬂuous South African style to the deep ﬂowing Russian liturgical harmonies. You should be comfortable singing in a group. Instructor: Teodora Georgieva-Gitberg, MA, has been a choral conductor and educator since 1999, when she graduated from the State Academy of Bulgaria with a master’s degree in choral conducting, with musicology as her second major.

Enchanted Evenings at the Opera Whether you’re new to the opera or already addicted to the experience, this popular course will help you to appreciate and understand the intoxicating and exciting world of opera. Join your instructor and special musical guests as we explore the four operas of Paciﬁc Opera’s 2010–11 season.

We begin in September with one of Rossini’s wittiest capers, Cinderella, ﬁlled with brilliant coloratura arias and hilarious ensembles. In November, the Machiavellian characters in Handel’s Rodelinda come alive through music of exceptional expressive power. POV brings us the soaring lyricism of young love in Puccini’s La Bohème in February. Lastly, in April, a POV premiere, Sam Barber’s Vanessa, the story of a tragic woman tortured by the memory of past love.

Music in the Time of War Transcendent and without borders, music has given expression to the unspoken and the unspeakable across the centuries during times of war. When grief is too great, loss too powerful, oppression too weighty, shock too consuming, we have made music. When a community needs to be uplifted, oﬀered solace, granted a moment of happy reminiscence, shown a better way, we have made music. When we have sought to see a better way, to respond to a way gone horribly wrong, to mobilize to follow a single way, or to sigh in relief when the way suddenly clears before us, we have made music. In this course we will explore the ﬁnest of this music drawn from our recent and distant past. No prior experience in music is required. Instructor: Dr. Mary Byrne is Head of Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion at the Victoria Conservatory of Music. Course Code: ASMU336 2010F C01 Date: Mondays, September 27 to November 22 (no class October 11): 9:30 to 11:30 am, 8 sessions Fee: $125 plus $15 HST (includes refreshments)
Great Poets of Classic Rock: Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Jim Morrison In its early years, rock music was dismissed by the establishment as trite entertainment for the unenlightened. Sammy Davis Jr. once commented, “If Rock and Roll is here to stay, I think I’ll kill myself.” As it matured in the ’60s, it came to reﬂect the times and people of a lost generation. Out of that came new musical styles with incredible poetry as lyrics. This course will examine the music and lyrics of three “troubadours of rock.” Sessions will feature biographical details, social and historical context, and lively discussions of music and lyrics with recorded listening examples and videos, where available.
Sublimity of Language: Handel and Messiah Beethoven once said: “Handel was the greatest composer that ever lived. I would uncover my head, and kneel before his tomb.” Explore the international career of George Frederick Handel, one of the 18th century’s most imposing composers—and successful entrepreneurs. Robert will introduce the class to great instrumental and vocal works composed in Germany, Italy and England, culminating in a detailed examination of Messiah—just in time for the Victoria Symphony’s annual presentation of this timeless masterpiece.

Stylus Fantasticus Throughout the winter, the Paciﬁc Baroque Festival is Victoria’s only opportunity for the concentrated appreciation of music provided by a festival.

There will also be an opportunity to hear interviews with the performers, as well as to meet some of them to ask them questions and hear live demonstrations of the music. The theme of this year’s festival centres on The Peace of Westphalia (1648), which ended the Thirty Years War and heralded the emergence of baroque music, nurtured in the courts of the newly established nation-states. The 2011 festival features the music of the violin virtuosos, Heinrich Schmelzer and Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber, who both fostered a unique Austrian tradition of Stylus Fantasticus from its origins in Italy.

Drawing with Pen and Ink Drawing with a metal straight-pen nib, a crow’s feather, a twig, a reed of grass, a bamboo reed, a fountain pen or a ball-point pen is an easy skill to learn because there are only a few basic techniques in pen and ink drawing. It is also challenging because the craft is similar to handwriting, one of the modern world’s lost arts. However, excellent examples of pen and ink drawing can be found in most historic and
contemporary books and magazines, and are easy to study because every line the artist drew is visible. This course comprises exercises, in-class assignments, demonstrations and the study of historic and contemporary pen and ink drawings. It is designed for experienced students and artists interested in applied art and ﬁne art practices such as illustration, cartooning, sketching and free drawing, with materials and techniques that, while ancient, are as modern as children’s books, graﬃti, technical illustration and travel sketching. A supply list will be sent to you. Prerequisite: Anyone Can Draw, Level 1, or an equivalent course. Please contact the instructor at email@example.com to discuss your portfolio.

Enjoying Jane Austen’s Juvenile Writing “Two Gentlemen most elegantly attired but weltering in their blood was what ﬁrst struck our Eyes— Sophia shrieked & fainted on the ground—I screamed & instantly ran mad—.” Jane Austen, “Love & Friendship,” written at age 14 We are fortunate to have access to Jane Austen’s early stories, complete with their raucous humour and spelling mistakes. This course explores several stories that Austen writes between the ages of 12 and 16. We discuss conventions of behaviour for young people in Austen’s day, particularly young women, and we uncover characters who defy those conventions. We learn that Austen inﬂicts upon her earliest characters tumultuous experiences of love, courtship and marriage, years before she writes such classic novels as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Persuasion. Make connections between Austen’s juvenile and mature works while getting to know the amusing and talented teenage Jane Austen.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement As our hormones start to change, often in our 40s, our physical and mental function starts to decline and aging accelerates due to the essential role of hormones for normal cellular function. Most hormone levels, including estrogen, progesterone and testosterone (for men and women), among others, decrease, while a few, including insulin and cortisol, start to rise. These changes in hormone production inﬂuence not only our energy and vigour, but the body’s ability to repair and regulate itself. Review the latest scientiﬁc evidence for the safe replacement of hormones using bioidentical hormone replacement and relevant testing. Appropriate hormone replacement can impact the development of the degenerative diseases of aging and help to relieve symptoms and prevent disease. Instructor: Maureen Sweeney, MD, Board Certiﬁed in Anti-Aging Medicine, has advanced training and experience in cosmetic medicine. Dr. Sweeney founded Live Young Medical Clinic in 2003.

“Bones” and Bones: Forensic Science Fiction and Fact The recent surge in popularity of forensic sciences in literature and television (including proﬁling, DNA analysis, cold case reinvestigation, crime scene investigation and forensic anthropology) has had a signiﬁcant eﬀect on these disciplines. There is an increased number of people entering these ﬁelds, a rise in jury awareness of potential sources of evidence and their validity (the “CSI Eﬀect”), and distortions in public perception of what these professionals are capable of doing and how they perform their forensic tasks. This presentation will attempt to dispel the growing myths about forensic anthropologists, what they do, and how they do it. We will discuss crime scene investigation and forensic archaeological excavation, laboratory operations, the eﬀects of increasing DNA analytical capabilities within the ﬁeld, biological proﬁles of human skeletal remains,
trauma analysis and the overall reliability of analytical conclusions. This course is oﬀered in conjunction with UVic’s anthropology department. Instructor: James Pokines, PhD, D-ABFA, has excavated forensic recovery scenes in multiple countries in Asia, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Greenland, Iraq and the United States. This research includes the forensic taphonomy of human remains, especially the eﬀects of acidic soil upon skeletal recovery and bone destruction, dispersal, and re-concentration by large carnivores and other vertebrates.

Forensic Anthropology in the Laboratory: Reading the Bone Language Participants in this workshop will receive an extensive survey of forensic anthropology, as a practical discipline, utilizing multiple case examples and other practical demonstrations. Other topics covered include forensic archaeological practices and forensic taphonomy (the study of the changes through which remains have passed in the interval between death and discovery). Participants will gain an understanding of the limitations in forensic anthropological analyses as they are contrasted with those propagated through the popular media, and understand how forensic anthropologists “read” bones to determine the biological characteristics of deceased persons, how they may have died and what happened to their remains since then. Note: This course is oﬀered in conjunction with UVic’s anthropology department.

The Archaeology of Southwest Asia The regions of southwestern Asia—from the Fertile Crescent of the ancient Near East to India—have been called the “cradle of civilization” for good reason: it’s here that many of the original civilizations, on which most of our own traditions are based, ﬁrst began. The Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians and later the Persians all laid the groundwork for Western Civilization as we know it today. With the defeat of the Persians by Alexander the Great, a new era began in this region and it is the transition between the civilizations of the ancient, Hellenistic and Islamic Near East that will draw our attention in this course.

Iran: A Glimpse Behind the Peacock Curtain
Science and Technology in the Ancient World
Long before Marco Polo travelled through Persia on his way to China, visitors marvelled at the country’s bustling bazaars, ancient monuments, parched deserts, snow-capped mountains and legendary hospitality. In this course we’ll use photographs, artifacts and maps to explore Iran’s exciting history, its extraordinary rich ethnic and religious diversity, as well as the nature of its contemporary conﬂicts.
When did humans ﬁrst start using tools and technology to enhance their lives? What impact did science and technology have on new civilizations? Did the ancient Romans perfect the central heating system 2,000 years ago? Did the ancient Greeks invent the steam engine 300 years before that?

Early Medieval Scotland: Picts and Scots Often considered a mysterious people, a clearer picture of the Picts is forming through the use of archaeological records, place name evidence, saints’ lives, king lists, and annals, etc. The Scots were a Gaelic-speaking people who came from Ireland during the late Roman Empire. The Gaelic kingdom of Dál Riata extended from the north of Ireland to the southwest of Scotland; the centre of kingship shifted about 500 CE from Ireland to Scotland. Christianity came to Scotland during this period and many clergy left Ireland to found churches in Scotland. In the ninth century the Picts and Scots merged to form the Kingdom of Alba, to meet the Norse threat. In this class students will learn about the society and culture of the various peoples of Scotland during the early medieval period (400–1000).

Viking Age: Scotland, Ireland and England While “Viking” conjures images of fearsome invaders, the reality was far more complex. The peoples of Norway, Sweden and Denmark went on “expeditions”—for raiding and trading. Travelling as far as Constantinople, they occupied Normandy (which was named for them) and established the state of Russia. The course will explore Viking Age Britain: Scotland, Ireland and the north of England. We will examine the society and culture of the period: battling and feuding, farming and feasting, the role of women, societal laws and honour. Sagas such as the Orkneyinga will be used to illustrate the Viking Age. Historical accuracy was not the purpose of the sagas; they were great entertainment and contain wonderful information about Norse life a thousand years ago.

Later Mediterranean Religions An Historical Approach No matter which major religion we look at today, all have their roots in antiquity. In this second of three courses on the origins of some of these religions in the Mediterranean region, we will investigate the mythology, mystery and state religions of Greek, Hellenistic and Roman times. We will try to understand how these earlier religions and belief systems, including those from the ancient Near East, became the antecedents of the major Western religions—Judaism, Christianity and Islam, all of which originated in this region.

In 1862, Victoria was a booming goldrush town. But “what ain’t they got … ? They ain’t got dames!” There were no fair damsels for the tens of thousands of gold miners thronging Victoria. Britain rose to the challenge! Queen Victoria, the Royal Navy, the Anglican Church and leading aristocrats came up with a solution: send them true-blue proper English girls to marry, of course! The tale of the brideship Tynemouth is ripe with tragedy and comedy. Hear their amazing story and meet some of the 60 women who braved all the perils of the high seas and wild west—girls with stars in their eyes and hopes of a rich husband in mind. Instructor: Terri Hunter, MA, is a sixth-generation Vancouver Islander. She writes and lectures in Victoria on a wide variety of topics, from a background in anthropology.

In this profusely illustrated talk, John Adams will take an in-depth look at these people and their personalities. Where did they come from, where were they educated, how did they earn their living, what roles did the women play? Not surprisingly, even a few scandals will be included in the stories. The family homes, some still standing and some long ago demolished, will also be featured, with some rare pictures of the interior rooms. Find out more about houses with names such as Fernwood, Cloverdale, Point Ellice, Hillside, Craigﬂower, Duvals, Cary Castle and others, both prominent and forgotten.

Victorian Cities of the Dead Amica at Somerset House Some of British Columbia’s most impressive 19thcentury cemeteries are located in Victoria and John Adams knows them intimately. He will discuss the earliest burial grounds and follow the development of most of the city’s cemeteries right up until the First World War. Places such as Ross Bay Cemetery, undoubtedly the most famous Victorian-era cemetery in the province, was laid out according to popular ideals of the mid-1800s about how such places should be designed, what trees should be planted and what the tombstones should look like. Many other places will be included, such as the Jewish Cemetery, the Chinese Cemetery, the Old Burying Ground (Pioneer Square), the Veterans Cemetery and numerous country churchyards in Metchosin and on the Saanich Peninsula. History, symbolism, architecture and cultural trends will all be discussed.

While the world-famous pyramids, temples, tombs and museums make up a huge part of anyone’s tour of Egypt, the “other” side of this ancient land is its people and their lifestyles—the farmers’ ﬁelds, the sleepy villages, the bustling shops, the chaotic markets, the sometimes-familiar homes and the everyday minor tourist attractions that usually don’t warrant much more than a footnote in a travel journal.

MEDIEVAL STUDIES 24th Annual Medieval Workshop Saturday, February 5, 2011
Medieval Lives It has been estimated that the average life expectancy for men and women in Medieval Britain was only about 30 years. In the Middle East and North Africa the average lifespan may have been as long as 35. While such ﬁgures should be viewed with considerable scepticism, there seems little doubt that factors such as disease, war, economic inequality, and poor diet and hygiene combined to make life for most people (to borrow the words of Thomas Hobbes) “nasty, brutish, and short.” Perhaps because life was so precarious, Medieval readers in Europe and the Islamic world were avid consumers of the biographies of saints, political and religious leaders, poets, warriors, criminals and madmen. This workshop will explore the many ways in which the lives of medieval men and women were represented in words and images, and will ask what these representations can tell us about the societies for which they were made. Faculty Coordinator: Dr. Marcus Milwright, Director, Medieval Studies Program The full program of speakers will be available in late fall. Please call 250-721-8458 to receive information when it is available.

The Last Neandertals Human evolution can be traced back 7,000,000 years. Modern humans evolved in Africa only 200,000 years ago and as recently as 26,000 years ago we shared parts of the world with at least one other species—the Neandertals. Since the discovery of the ﬁrst Neandertal remains in 1856 in Germany, this species has generated controversy, whether it is questions concerning their genetic relationship to modern humans, their capacity for language and artistic expression, or the reasons for

Perspectives on Retinal Function and Approaches to Treating Retinal Disease
The Muslim conquests of the seventh and early eighth centuries profoundly changed the political map of the early Medieval world. Christians, Jews and the followers of other religions were confronted by an assertive new faith, about which they knew very little. Many regarded the success of Islam as a divine punishment for their own collective sins. Through the medieval period scholars in Europe gained a fuller understanding of Islam. Diplomatic contacts established between European rulers and Muslim polities also facilitated the knowledge about Islam. This talk will look at some aspects of this complex story. The ﬁrst half of this talk will examine Christian and Jewish writing on Islam from the seventh to the sixteenth century, tracing the evolving understanding of the religion in Europe and elsewhere. The second half will concentrate upon visual representations of Muslim rulers produced by European artists in a diverse range of media including manuscript illustration, oil and fresco painting, medals and prints.

CONTEMPORARY ISSUES Telling Your Left from Your Right: Lessons in Political Labelling Telling your political left from your political right has become a real challenge. Once upon a time, being a liberal meant you were anti-religion and pro-sex education, while being a conservative meant you were pro-religion and anti-sex education. These labels and others have “expired.” The left, historically labelled “labour,” today encompasses environmentalists and human rights advocates whose social values often clash. The right, historically labelled the wealthy libertarian elite, now labels much of the mainstream middleclass whose interests are often at odds with those of both the rich and the poor. We will also look at anarchists, who can be social ultraconservatives and economic ultraliberals. Now, you can be a left-wing liberal or a right-wing liberal, or a left-wing conservative or a right-wing conservative, without any practical, logical or other philosophical contradiction! This course will help you make sense of these and other confusing political creatures. Instructor: Susan Turner, PhD, has been teaching at UVic since 1996.

Terrorism in the 21st Century: Change or Continuity? Are you a September 10 thinker or a September 12 thinker? Do you believe that terrorism has fundamentally changed since the attacks of September 11, 2001—or not? Is Al Qaeda a unique, global threat or something else? Are counterterrorism approaches that were in vogue before those attacks still valid today? Do we need new approaches that have not been tried before? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this session, which reviews the history of terrorism and the eﬀorts to deal with it from the 1960s to the present day. You will learn about the “new terrorism thesis” that emerged in the 1990s and examine the arguments for and against it. At the end, you will be in a position to decide for yourself whether we are faced with a completely new threat, or an old one in a diﬀerent context. Instructor: Professor Ronald Crelinsten is Senior Research Associate at the Centre for Global Studies at the University of Victoria. His latest book is Counterterrorism, published by Polity Press in the UK and distributed by Wiley & Sons in North America.

Terrorism and Counterterrorism in the Maritime Realm Do you suﬀer from “maritime blindness”? Living on an island in the Paciﬁc Northwest, Victorians are surrounded by water. What are the particular vulnerabilities of the maritime realm to terrorist attack? What are the typical targets and threats? What are the implications of climate change for these targets, threats and vulnerabilities? Is counterterrorism in the maritime realm signiﬁcantly diﬀerent from counterterrorism in general? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this course, which surveys the nature of terrorism and counterterrorism in the maritime realm. You will learn to appreciate the unique challenges of the maritime realm for both terrorists and counterterrorists. You will also learn how counterterrorism has adapted to the many diﬀerent kinds of actors involved in dealing with maritime terrorism: navies, merchant ship owners, insurance companies, port authorities, cruise line operators, international maritime organizations, state, regional and local governments and tourists, sailors and merchants.

Fall 2010 Public Issues Community Forum In these times of globalization, increased competition and changing mandates, higher education is increasingly tasked with supporting the achievement of both quality of life and economic development goals. Can the university do both? Some people argue that the core business of universities is the creation, preservation and exchange of knowledge for the public good. Others suggest that decreased public funding along with interest from private organizations in gaining access to knowledge has created the conditions that support increasing commercialization of universities. What do you think? Should universities be involved in initiatives that have commercial value? Is academic freedom and instructional quality adversely aﬀected in universities that have moved closer to the marketplace, or is increased commercialization an important strategy for survival in diﬃcult economic times?

Why Study the Humanities? Humanities are those studies created by the human desire for knowledge and understanding of our history, classical traditions, literature, language and philosophy. These studies encompass disciplines that address a variety of needs: to examine the ethical values in our lives, to examine our social responsibilities and to develop intellectually sound ways of reﬂecting on what it means to be a human being. Studying the humanities increases our appreciation of ideas and of various modes of thinking. It leads to a greater understanding of values within cultural and historical contexts. It can sharpen our skill in formulating our own ideas, developing them coherently and expressing them clearly and eﬀectively. It can help us read “diﬃcult” texts with increased comprehension and powers of analysis. It helps us learn how to learn.
Who Should Apply? The Humanities Diploma Program is designed to meet the needs of those members of the community who wish to follow an integrated course of fullor part-time study in the humanities, and who may need an introduction to university study.

CANADIAN STUDIES Why Study Canada? A country as vast, diverse and ever-changing as Canada oﬀers near-limitless opportunities for study and reﬂection. Multicultural and multilingual, with a unique political, economic and social history, Canada deﬁes easy deﬁnitions and continues to fuel debate about its “identity” as a nation. The Canadian Studies Program is designed for fullor part-time local and international students who wish to broaden their knowledge and understanding of Canada. In addition to three core courses in Canadian culture and issues, students may choose from a range of other courses related to Canada oﬀered by the faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine Arts. Options for study include:
This course oﬀers an opportunity to explore how the physical environment of this country shapes the Canadian people. What are the connections between the environment and our sense of identity? What impact has the environment had on our culture, and how did received notions of wilderness aﬀect our environment? How has Canada’s environment been interpreted and protected, despoiled and worshipped, and what can we learn from this story? In probing the idea of environment as shaper of national consciousness, CS 201 will examine the diﬀerence between European and non-western understandings of environment and land use, theories about how environment has determined our development and Canada’s position in the global environmental movement. The course will look at environmental activism and the meaning of sustainability and environmental justice. Through lectures, discussions, ﬁlms and readings, you will be challenged to articulate your own worldview, and how it informs your appreciation of the environment.

The main component of SAGE is our study groups. Study groups are not taught by instructors; instead, a facilitator assists in coordinating the presentations of group members and in moderating the discussions. An important aspect of study groups is their small size (maximum 15 participants). Group members quickly get to know each other, and learning takes place in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. There is a limited number of fee waivers available for all study groups. Study groups will also be held at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney. For more information about these groups, call 250-721-7797. Study groups happen through your initiative, so if there is a subject you would love to learn more about and you are willing to facilitate a group, please call Janet King at 250-721-8827. No experience necessary! We provide the training. We are oﬀering the following study group this fall:
Painting in France, 1860 to 1914 At Berwick House In this study group we will concentrate on French painters who were active between 1860 and 1914. This was a period when Paris was truly the centre of the international art world—most inﬂuential new movements and developments originated there. We will look at movements from impressionism and plein air (a painting begun and ﬁnished in the open air) to post-impressionism, expressionism, fauvism, cubism, dadaism and surrealism. Some artists we may choose to explore include Manet, Renoir, Degas, Monet, Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso, to name a few. You should select an artist or movement to study in depth, and prepare a brief presentation to share with the rest of the group. This group takes place at Berwick House, 4062 Shelbourne Street, in the library.

How Animals Function Did you know that a ﬂatworm’s excretory system deals with nitrogenous waste in a manner that is very similar to how a human kidney functions—just at a diﬀerent level of complexity? Or that cephalopods such as the octopus and squid have adaptations that make them record breakers?—they’re smarter, faster, and larger than other invertebrates. In this course we will explore the principles of animal physiology by comparing how the major animal groups function: how they are similar, and how they are unique. We will discuss how they capture food, digest it, carry out gas exchange, get rid of waste, maintain their water and salt balance, and deal with ﬂuctuating temperatures. We will also compare these bodily functions at all levels of complexity, from sponges to molluscs and vertebrates, pointing out recurring themes as well as unique adaptations.
The seven indoor sessions will be held in the marine biology lab equipped with ﬂow-through tanks and housing for an assortment of marine invertebrates ranging from sponges and anemones to crabs and sea stars. Three ﬁeld trips will provide opportunities for observing more of the local marine life in its natural habitat. Because of the nature of the spring tides, all ﬁeld trips will be on wet west coast beaches in the evening. Instructor: Dawna Brand is a senior lab instructor in the Department of Biology at UVic.

Introduction to Urban Homesteading As public concern over peak oil, climate change and food security grows, so does the movement to “re-localize” our resources. Much more food, water and energy can be harvested and cycled in the city than most people realize, and where better to start than our own home habitats? Through a combination of multimedia presentations, group discussion and individual design projects, this course will explore key topics including: small-scale intensive food production; composting and soil building in the city; harvesting, conserving and cycling water. A materials list will be sent to you before the beginning of class and will consist of inexpensive, easyto-obtain items such as sketchbook and pencils. Note: The second session will take place on Saturday, September 18, from 2:30 to 4:30 pm, and will consist of a homestead tour and hands-on learning. Instructor: Geoﬀ Johnson graduated from Linnaea Farm’s permaculture design program in 1995, and has focused on studying, practising and teaching urban permaculture ever since. He has worked and volunteered with local organizations to develop urban agriculture demonstration sites and has developed and taught workshops on urban homesteading for environmental NGOs including the Compost Education Centre. Geoﬀ is developing a demonstration urban homestead in Fernwood where he practises the methods on which his workshops are based.

In the past, wetlands and cities didn’t mix. Urbanization began with draining the wetlands to make room for buildings and roads. Today we know better. Instead of erasing wetlands from the city, they are welcomed as an integral part of a storm water management system and we even create new ones to assist in removing toxins from urban runoﬀ. Wetlands, including bogs, fens, swamps and marshes (both freshwater and saltwater), are high in biodiversity and are integral to maintaining healthy ecosystems in the region. Victoria is fortunate to have conserved many of its wetlands and has had new ones created through ecological restoration.

NATIVE SPECIES AND NATURAL PROCESSES PROFESSIONAL SPECIALIZATION CERTIFICATE This non-credit certiﬁcate has been designed for professionals working in the ﬁeld of landscape architecture, landscape design and management, forestry, agrology, biology, ecological restoration and environmental practice. The new certiﬁcate builds on the successful Restoration of Natural Systems program to provide more advanced training for working professionals. The program focuses on: • incorporation of native species into design; • an ecosystems approach in planning and design of restoration activities; • restoration prescriptions which are patterned on natural processes; • urban ecosystems and the urban/rural interface; • invasive species control and management; and • plant propagation techniques. The program will initially feature four courses, which will be phased in over several years:
Design Principles for Natural Processes By Distance Ecosystem restoration attempts to create selfrenewing plant and animal associations which need to work with and expand on existing natural processes. This course identiﬁes natural processes involved in maintaining ecosystems and how they are recreated in restoration projects. It also addresses the element of design where a particular restoration project accommodates special requirements, such as wildlife crossings. In an urban context, design considerations include low impact development and aesthetic appeal. Instructor: David Polster is a plant ecologist with over 30 years of experience in vegetation studies, reclamation and invasive species management. He holds a masters of science from the University of Victoria, is past-president of the Canadian Land Reclamation Association, a founding member of and treasurer for the BC Chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration and serves on the board of the Invasive Plant Council of BC. Course Code: ASNP501 2010F D01 Date: September 13 to December 3 Fee: $750
• Design Principles for Natural Processes • Selection and Propagation of Native Plants for Ecosystem Restoration • Natural Processes • Invasive Species Management Students will be required to successfully complete four courses totalling 144 instructional hours. Courses in the certiﬁcate will typically be oﬀered in a distance format appealing to professionals from across North America as a means to meet their annual professional development requirements.

Eastern Turkey and the Black Sea Coast Beginning and ending in Istanbul, this tour combines a two-week land-based excursion to the less-travelled regions of Turkey—South-Eastern and Eastern Anatolia—with a seven-day cruise on the Black Sea, stopping in Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine. After a three-night stay in Istanbul we ﬂy south to Gaziantep, where we tour the main sites before heading by coach to Urfa, considered to be the birth place of Abraham. From here we will visit the ancient city of Harran, with its mud beehive houses. We then travel to Kahta for an overnight stop, allowing us an early morning ascent of Mt. Nemrut, with its colossal statues and spectacular views. On our way to Van we stop in the walled city of Diyarbakir, built on the banks of the Tigris River. While in Van we enjoy a cruise on the lake to Akhtamar Island to visit the 10th-century Church of the Holy Cross. From Van we travel to Erzurum, the “capital” and largest city in Eastern Turkey and then to the Black Sea coastal town of Trabzon, by way of the Kackar Mountains.

Provence to Paris: A journey of discovery through France The Rhône River has played a key role in French history, trade and culture for millennia. On this tour we will explore some of the venerable cities, charming towns and idyllic countryside in the valley of the Rhône, and trace its path through time from ancient Rome to the present day.
Each trip is normally preceded by an orientation course, and is accompanied by an academic resource person as well as an experienced coordinator.
We begin with four days in Lyon, which was founded by Julius Caesar, and has long maintained its pivotal place as a centre of artistic creativity and innovation. We will explore spectacular vestiges of the Roman city, Lyon’s fascinating medieval and Renaissance history, and its vibrant cultural life— not forgetting the food and wine for which the area is justly famous! The city’s historical centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998, and oﬀers fascinating strolls through a history which seems just below the surface of the present.

Above, left to right: Didier Bergeret, Elizabeth Saint and Claudio Lucarevschi check their global perspective in UVic’s Bibliocafé.
Talking to the world Didier Bergeret is a linguist by trade, but that doesn’t stop him from using a bit of math humour to get his point across. “I like to say I’m pi-lingual,” Bergeret says, waiting a beat as his claim sinks in. “I speak 3.14 languages.” As the world languages program coordinator for Continuing Studies, Bergeret speaks French and English ﬂuently. He jokes that the other 1.14 languages come from bits and pieces that he has learned over the years. His point is that languages can provide an entry point into a culture. “The way to discuss reality in one language may not exist in another language. I think it really opens your mind and it goes with culture,” he says.

Those who study Languages at UVic have many reasons to do so: business, travel, family, love of languages and even family heritage. In recent years, Finnish has been oﬀered at three diﬀerent levels. This fall, Ukrainian will be on the menu for the ﬁrst time. In the case of these somewhat obscure European languages, Bergeret points out that those who take these courses often want to get more in touch with their family’s heritage. Mandarin took a big upswing before the Beijing Olympic Games and Arabic is surging in popularity because of increasing interest in the Middle East. Since taking on the coordinator role five years ago, Bergeret estimates the world languages program has roughly doubled in size, both in
languages offered and levels of fluency. Claudio Lucarevschi, for instance, teaches Brazilian Portuguese. “There are many Canadians engaged to Brazilians. Most who are studying Brazilian Portuguese are frustrated by not being able to talk to their partner in their language. Or they want to travel,” Lucarevschi says. “For some people, it’s just learning the language, the linguistic side. But there’s a cultural side: it’s how to behave, how to greet people.” Bergeret insists that language is language and that English is English, whether it’s from Glasgow, Houston or Port Alberni. And he doesn’t distinguish between so-called “Parisian French” and French from Quebec, or even New Brunswick Acadian French. “It’s all French,” he says. – GK

for a traditional university degree. “I didn’t want the experience of just getting a piece of paper. Sitting in a classroom with 150 other people wasn’t really what I was looking for,” Ridout says. So, Ridout, 31, enrolled in the intensive 12-week Certiﬁcate in Business Administration (CBA) Fast Track Program. By the second week, Ridout’s

perspective grew beyond his native Victoria. “Last year I was pretty focused on having my life in Victoria and having a government job, or something of that nature. Now I understand the opportunities that are out there. There are opportunities all over the world.” Ridout had taken an initial crack at UVic over a decade ago as a history student. But before he ﬁnished that degree, he took a hiatus and never went back. “I wasn’t conﬁdent of where I was going.” The CBA Fast Track, however, has given him skills and precious conﬁdence. “I had a lot of nerves going into the program because I had not been in a classroom environment for many years and not knowing exactly what the demand of completing so much material in such a short period of time was going to be,” Ridout says via email. In an earlier conversation over coﬀee, Ridout gave speciﬁcs. “I give the instructors credit for teaching the core subjects in an intense period of time. In accounting, in seven days, I went from knowing nothing to doing balance sheets and statements of earnings. In fact, ﬁnance and ﬁnancial accounting were my two top marks,” Ridout says. For his eﬀorts he was rewarded with the Gary Holtom Award for top grades in his program. There were other beneﬁts beyond the academic too. “I got up every morning and I was happy going to school. I was really inspired by it and it deﬁnitely changed my life. I really didn’t think I would have fun doing
this and I did.” – GK
Going the distance Chances are if you make a call for help as a distance education student, Manesh Bhathella will hear your plea and swing into action. Not your typical action hero, Bhathella favours oﬃce casual over a cape and tights. But he and fellow onlinehelp desk consultant Trevar Pearce have saved the day innumerable times for time-strapped, technologically challenged students and staﬀ. “There is a huge folder of ‘mash’ notes from grateful students that the two techno-wizards have helped,” says Kate Seaborne, manager of Distance Education Services. With some 250 distance education courses on oﬀer and students well out of visiting range of the UVic campus, Bhathella and Pearce are plugged-in problem solvers. “I think it’s fair to say that without the help support desk, some students wouldn’t be able to continue their studies,” Seaborne says. Katy Chan, an online course developer, came up with the help desk concept in 1996 as a way to enable instructors to fully concentrate on their work, while providing tech support for the teachers and students. Manesh Bhathella and Trevar Pearce keeping the learning flowing on the Onlinehelp Desk in the Continuing Studies building at UVic.

Language moves online
Continued from page 5… Recent advances in online educational forums and learning environments have allowed instructor Françoise Keating to deliver a number of course components in the French Language Diploma Program via Moodle. Instructor Elizabeth Saint also wants to bring her classroom into the virtual world. This blended format, as the French instructor calls it, would allow busy working people to get the same level of instruction and exposure to language, while saving them the weekly commute to campus. Everything would be put online. “People have other things to do in life. Missing a class can be a big thing where their progress is concerned,” Saint says. She wants to introduce the blended course by the Fall of 2011, cutting classroom visits down from about 52 to around six. Although Saint experienced some initial resistance from students when she introduced Moodle last January, those initial misgivings quickly evaporated. “The response was overwhelmingly positive,” Saint says.

UVic’s extended family International students who sign up for the English Language Centre’s Homestay Program generally do so for three reasons: to practise English; to have a safe, caring environment to live in; and to learn about Canada. Homestay students are “treated as part of the family. They learn a lot about Canadian culture,” says Paula Leahy, one of the Homestay Program’s coordinators. That might mean an Asian student going camping for the ﬁrst time, or a Mexican student attending her ﬁrst hockey game. Retired couples often host international students because they ﬁnd it brings their household an energy it might otherwise not have. “It’s part of their lifestyle,” Leahy says. On the younger end of the scale, Peter Rosenberg and Jennifer Psyliakis have been a host family for more than two years and have sheltered 12 students in that time. Initially, they took in students to help ease the ﬁnancial strain of holding a mortgage and raising a young family, including an eight-month-old. But they soon realized the relationships were just as important, particularly to their older child, a fouryear-old daughter. “It gives her exposure to diﬀerent cultures and Thea loves it. Pretty much all the students we have had are very family and child oriented. Thea just latches onto them,” says Rosenberg, a school teacher. Unsurprisingly, the immersion in family life improves the visitors’ English considerably. Their current student, Carlos from Brazil, got oﬀ the plane knowing about 10 words of English. Eight months later, Rosenberg ﬁnds the Brazilian’s English skills markedly improved: “They go oﬀ the charts.” Rosenberg and Psyliakis also love to cook and explore international fare with their students, as well as introducing them to Canadian fare. There are other beneﬁts too, such as getting the family out to do things they might not otherwise do. “It’s great to be a tourist in Victoria,” Psyliakis says. These homestays can last anywhere from a few weeks to several years. The ensuing bonds can last much longer. “The relationships are wonderful and lots of hosts are invited to weddings or vacations outside of Canada,” Leahy says. She recalls one Korean student forming a close bond with a host family as well as its dog. When the student returned home to Korea, he made good on his promise to send the family a Samoyed puppy —worth more than $1,000—to keep the other dog company.
Begun in 1989, the UVic English Language Centre’s Homestay program places about 800 students a year with some 400 host families. About 80 per cent of Homestay students come from the ELC, while the other 20 per cent are enrolled in degree programs. Homestay is available throughout the year for the ELC’s programs, and new host families are always welcome. Homestay application fee: $250 Homestay accommodation and meals fee: $800/ month paid to host family Interested in joining the family? Find out more at www.uvcs.uvic.ca/elc/homestay/hosts/
Although the family’s original canine died, “they still have the other dog,” Leahy says. – GK
