LEARN. PRACTISE. GROW. 2013 SPRING CALENDAR Learning that shapes who you are.

www.LearningThatShapes.ca/Spring


Real change doesn’t happen overnight. Transforming your outlook on life, changing your career path, developing a skill, learning something new or just trying to make sense of the world—all these things take attention, dedication, practice, a willingness to explore unknown territory and challenge old ideas. Learning that shapes who you are.

Continuing Studies at UVic is a resource that enables you to explore possibilities and develop your own ideas about who you are and the world around you. You’ll enjoy the balance of theory and practice in small classes that offer big experiences.

The Arts HISTORY IN ART NEW Velazquez and 17th-Century Spanish Art

One of the greatest painters of all time, Diego De Silva Velazquez is also one of the most beloved, thanks to his complexities of intention, his naturalism and his piercing insights into human emotion and psychology. He was a baroque artist but his vision transcended that style, making him impossible to pigeonhole. This course will explore his extraordinary range as a court painter, portraitist and genre painter. His contemporaries such as Zurbaran and Murillo will also be examined, as will his legacy. Instructor: John Lucas, MA, BFA Date: Tuesdays, January 15 to March 5 Time: 2:30 to 4:30 pm Sessions: 8 Fee: $125 plus $15.00 HST Code: ASHA078 2013S C01

Great Automobile Designers of the 20th Century NEW

This course will be an examination of the lives and achievements of the 20th century’s greatest automobile designers including Bugatti, Loewy, Porsche, Miller, Voisin and a host of others.

The Fate of the Melody

Far more than a good tune to sing, virtually all composers work tirelessly to define the essence of the melody in each and every composition. They craft the melody to perfection and subject the melody to all manner of manipulation: flipping it, fragmenting it, refracting and reflecting it. Ultimately, we derive great delight, as listeners, from following the fate of the melody as it winds its journey through magnificent compositions at the hands of great composers. In this course we will explore a selection of the great works from the classical repertoire which are driven by their melodies. No prior experience in music is required.

Certificate Program in Environmental and Occupational Health (EOH)— Graduate, Dean Adams

“Interaction between students all over the world and the instructors, every day, throughout the program was amazing.” Achieving the EOH Certificate in Fall 2012 had an impact on my career resulting in new job offers almost immediately. I have chosen a new position that offers exciting opportunities for future career and personal growth, and with significantly increased compensation. The EOH program was very different, in a great way, than other more conventional educational paths I have taken. I have previously attended other post-secondary institutions in a classroom environment and was surprised by how interactive the UVic distance learning experience was. I wanted to develop my career in health and safety and broaden my knowledge base and abilities. I also wanted to pursue a CRSP (Certified Registered Safety Professional) designation and was pleased to see that the EOH Program satisfied the education requirement for the designation. My belief that education is a prime ingredient in the recipe for success has been reinforced. I have opened doors and expanded my sphere of influence and opportunity by completing this program. – Dean Adams See page 4 for the full list of certificate and diploma programs offered through Continuing Studies. More details about the Certificate Program in Environmental and Occupational Health can be found on page 26.

EDUCATION FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC Cardiac Café: What You Need to Know about Women’s Heart Health Many women are shocked to learn heart disease is our #1 health threat. Over 80% of women have at least one major risk factor for heart disease, which kills more women than men each year. Heart disease also kills six times more women per year than breast cancer, and more women die from heart disease than from all cancers combined. Over 80% of women have at least one major risk factor for heart disease. At this inspiring and interactive workshop, (“part cardiology bootcamp and part stand-up comedy”), learn about heart attack symptoms that may surprise you, tests and treatments that could save you, personal lessons learned from a heart attack to inspire you, as well as how to understand your own unique risk factors and some heart-healthy ways to address them. Instructor: Carolyn Thomas has been described by cardiologist Dr. John Mandrola as a “heart attack survivor-turned-heart health evangelist.” She’s a 2008 graduate of the WomenHeart Science & Leadership Symposium for Women With Heart Disease at the world-famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota—the first Canadian invited to attend this prestigious community education training. Since graduating from Mayo, she has spoken to thousands of people about our #1 killer. In 2009, “Our Bodies Ourselves” of Boston named her one of their Women’s Health Heroes.

Ruminations: Learn to Whirl on the Sufi Path

Wound Management for Health Professionals Level I

Canadian Falls Prevention Curriculum©

The poetry of Persian Mystic Jalalludin Rumi has become very popular in North America over the last 20 years, and has spawned a great interest in Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam from which Rumi emerged. Come learn about Rumi’s life and philosophy, and experience the ecstatic Sufi chanting ritual of zhikr (“remembrance”) and the moving meditation of whirling (as a dervish) in a practical, well-paced workshop that caters to all ages and physical abilities—no previous dance experience required! The day will emphasize the Sufi message of creating space and peace within oneself. As Rumi himself said, “The clear bead at the centre changes everything—there are no edges to my loving now.”

Proficient wound management is an ever-present challenge for professional health care clinicians. Chronic and acute wound prevention and treatment requires a strong foundation of theory and principles of wound management combined with evidence-based practice. This comprehensive six-week, online course provides multidisciplinary health care professionals with the essential tools and strategies to confidently address wound management. Apply theory using visual case examples, interactive assessments and collaborative discussion. Main course concepts include prevention, assessment, healing, infection, dressings and pain management.

An E-Learning Course for Health and Helping Professionals

Science vs. Religion

Understanding Death and Rebirth NEW

We are all alive, therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence, and yet very few of us have actually come to terms with it. This course introduces Buddhist insight into death and dying, helping us to develop an awareness of our own mortality in a way that will totally enrich and transform our human life. In particular, we explore traditional meditative practices that inspire positive states of mind and enable us to meet our death with grace, clarity and fearlessness. Instructor: Gen Kelsang Zopa is a Buddhist monk who has studied Kadampa Buddhism for more than 19 years and has taught extensively through-

out Canada. He is currently the Resident Teacher at Bodhichitta Buddhist Centre in Victoria.

The Evolution/Creation Debate It seems that science and religion, whatever form they may have taken in the past, have always been at odds with each other. In this course, we will explore that historical relationship, as well as look at the fundamental elements of each which have caused so much dissension and diďŹƒculty throughout history. Despite strong feelings and emotions for each, the debates, which have raged for centuries now, have not brought us any closer to a resolution or reconciliation between the two. It is some of these feelings, ideas, theories and debates which will form the basis of our investigation into one of the most hotly contested issues in the history of intellectual discourse.

Guess Who?: Identity and the Grave How do archaeologists study identity through funerary ritual? Kinship, gender, status, age, ethnicity … these identities and more all intertwine to make us who we are. In this talk, we will explore approaches to identity through grave goods, human remains, types of burial, etc. Case studies will include (but are not limited to) Neanderthals, Copper Age Europe, medieval Europe and the Mayans.

We are no longer limited to the simple choices of cremation or burial. But, have we ever been? In this two-hour talk, we will explore the variation of human burial choices, looking at ancient communal tombs in the Neolithic, to individual graves in the Bronze Age. We will consider the Tibetan practices of sky burial and the Viking practices of boat burial. Whether the rituals are designed to free the soul or to bind the soul to the body, people have been making deliberate choices about how to treat their dead since the beginnings of humanity.

Decomposing Bodies: Forensic Taphonomy and the Interpretation of Human Remains Forensic taphonomy is the study of biological and biochemical processes that alter the body at or around the time of death. In this two-hour lecture we will examine what happens to bodies when they decay in various environments, and consider how such transformations are used to determine the cause of death, to estimate the postmortem interval (time since death), to personally identify the deceased (including sex, age), and to locate clandestine graves. We will use case studies to explain why changes in human remains affecting the process of decomposition are crucial for the forensic interpretation of mass graves, mass disasters, war crimes and cold cases of murder.

Medieval Ireland 1150–1450

In the High Middle Ages, Anglo-Normans came to fight for the king of Leinster, liked what they saw and refused to go home. They conquered and occupied much of Ireland. To the kings of England, conquest was a good way to employ the martial spirit of their young men, but there was a little problem for the English administration. Their colonists learned Gaelic and adopted Gaelic law and custom. The 14th-century Statutes of Kilkenny were meant to keep those colonists English speaking under threat of fines and forfeiture. Why then would the descendants of the Anglo-Normans adopt this strange language and law? The phrase “beyond the pale” referred to the barbaric ways of the “native” Irish (Gaels) who lived outside the area of English settlement, typically surrounded by a palisade made with pales (stakes). In this course we will explore society on both sides of the pale in Ireland.

These teachings present highly effective methods for getting in touch with the deeper nature of our mind, where it is easy to let go of our self-limiting conceptions and learn to identify with our potential for enlightenment. Often misunderstood, these methods will be introduced in a way that everyone can appreciate and make use of in their daily lives.

community that in the face of Iran’s continued defiance, time is running out. In this presentation we’ll review Iran’s vast geography and its unique history in order to better understand the country’s contemporary cultural, political and military landscape. We’ll try to determine how this game of brinkmanship came about, why it now looks increasingly likely that Iran might soon get the confrontation the United States seems so desperate to avoid, and, more importantly, why an attack will only be a temporary solution to a much deeper problem that can only be solved by sweeping political changes within Iran.

Celtic and Roman Britain AD 40–500 NEW

In this course we will examine Celtic Britain before and after the Roman Conquest of AD 43 up to the departure of the Roman administration and army in the early fifth century and the beginning of the Anglo-Saxon invasions. We will also look at the sub-Roman period or the time of Arthur. Throughout this period, Britain was populated by two Celtic peoples: those who spoke p-Celtic (British) and those who spoke q-Celtic (Gaelic). The Romans conquered the British, created the province of Britannia, and were working on conquering the rest of the island and Ireland. However, the Gaels managed to remain independent because the Romans were preoccupied with Brigantian revolts and

political unrest in Rome. What was it like to be a Roman citizen of the greatest Empire in the world while living near the edge of that world?

Victoria During the US Civil War NEW

One hundred and fifty years ago the American Civil War was being fought on battlefields far distant from Victoria, but a fascinating campaign of rhetoric, intrigue and innuendo was being waged in the city between Northern and Southern sympathizers. From the opening shots over Fort Sumter in 1861 to the final battle and surrender at Appomattox Courthouse in 1865, Victorians had ready access to news of the war. Local historian John Adams will touch on many of the key events and their repercussions here. The Trent Affair, which almost led to war between Britain and the United States, prompted Governor James Douglas to propose an offensive campaign into Washington State. Rumours of Confederate privateers planning to capture a boat in Victoria Harbour to prey on US shipping may have been true.

Glorious 150th: A Look at Some of Victoria’s Oldest Residences in Celebration of Our City’s Sesquicentennial Where are Victoria’s log houses? What’s the oldest building in the city? What’s “Gothic” architecture doing in Victoria? Who was the city’s first architect? How come we’ve lost so many mansions? What’s the smallest house in Victoria? Why is downtown brick, and almost everything else wood? What could you build for $100 in the 1880s? Author and researcher Nick Russell explores these and other questions about Victoria’s architecture from the 19th century, in an entertaining and richly illustrated talk based on his recent book, Glorious Victorians: 150 Years/150 Houses: Celebrating residential architecture in BC’s capital. Instructor: Nick Russell, PhD, retired as a journalist and journalism teacher to expand his interest in built-heritage. He and his wife have restored several heritage homes, and won a wallful of heritage awards. He is a former president of Heritage Regina and the Hallmark Heritage Society, and is an active researcher for the Victoria Heritage Foundation.

Times of Transformation in Haida Gwaii: Archaeology and Haida Oral History After the last ice age, Haida Gwaii entered a time of rapid landscape transformation: tundra changed to forest, major land mammals were extirpated, and sea levels rose by 150 metres. Ancestral Haida were on this transforming landscape, as shown by a small but informative set of archaeological sites dating back to as much as 12,700 years ago. The oldest of these sites show a coherent picture of ancient bear hunting practices. Other early sites show a fluent adaptation to the rugged marine environment. Some of these archaeological and paleo-environmental data may show connections to Haida oral histories, which also begin with a great “Time of Transformation.” In this talk, Dr. Mackie will examine the data and explore the possible connections.

Holy Images: Spirituality and Politics in Byzantium The use of images of Jesus in the Byzantine empire went through extremes of disapproval and destruction to an almost frenetic proliferation in churches and monasteries. This lecture/discussion introduces the religious, political and gender issues surrounding the presence of holy images by exploring a variety of visual and textual evidence on portable artifacts, frescoes and mosaics.

Blood, Wine and the Golden Chain: Eloquence and Violence among the Medieval Cultures of the North Atlantic This talk looks at the poetic traditions of the Celtic and Nordic peoples during the Early Middle Ages. From severed heads and talking animals to professional poets and their political influence, the world of the medieval poet on the North Sea was full of bizarre and frightening realities that emerged from the equation of mental and physical prowess. We will consider the role that religion played, particularly the advent of Christianity, and compare such gory tropes as the drinking of blood from the mouth of a husband’s severed head and a god of poetry who wields a bloody spear against his own offspring. We will also consider the impact of the Norman expansion and the remnants of this past that still survive today.

The Search for Franklin’s Lost Vessels: The 2012 HMS Erebus and HMS Terror Expedition Due to the importance of Sir John Franklin’s 1845 voyage to Canada’s history of Arctic navigation and exploration, the two lost ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, are designated together as a national historic site of Canada (the only such “undiscovered” national historic site). Locating these shipwrecks offers unprecedented information on the search for the Northwest Passage and the exploration of Canada’s north. In the summer of 2012, the Parks Canada-led search for the Franklin vessels enlisted UVic’s Ocean Technology Laboratory. The Faculty of Engineering team employed an autonomous underwater vehicle, equipped with bathymetric side-scan sonar, to map the ocean floor at depths that are unsafe for divers. The high-resolution acoustic imagery is being used to detect and identify artifacts of archaeological significance. This presentation will describe the

The Murderous Imagination: Colonial Collisions and the Genres of Justice

One Hundred Years of Advocating for Justice: Litigating the Calder Case

This talk will focus on the high profile 1958 trial of Kikkik, an Inuit woman charged with murder. What can be learned about justice and Canadian histories of the north by exploring four different genres in which story has been told? We will compare the trial transcript; Farley Mowatt’s book The Desperate People; a trio of Inuit sculptures (carved in 1959) on display in the Yellowknife courthouse; and a documentary film made 50 years after the event by one of Kikkik’s own daughters.

Using video clips, photographs and other visual aids, Professor Foster outlines and discusses the legal and historical context of the Calder case, decided by the Supreme Court of Canada in 1973. Although the case began in the 1960s, its roots reach back as far as the 1870s, and it is one of the main reasons that Canada developed a comprehensive land claims process.

Stories of Gold 26th Annual Medieval Workshop Gold has been prized by humans for thousands of years. One of the few metals to occur in its pure form on the surface of the earth, gold is a remarkably malleable material that can be formed into any shape. To celebrate the 50th (golden) anniversary of the University of Victoria, we have chosen to explore the role of this rare and beautiful metal in medieval society. Speakers will address the ways in which gold was used for sacred purposes ranging from reliquaries and liturgical items to the ornamentation of buildings and manuscripts with gold leaf. The metal had a central role in economic life, with gold coins circulating across the known world. Other talks look at the metaphorical dimensions of gold, including the medieval bestseller the Golden Legend and the pervasive concept of lost “Golden Ages.” We hope to bring you a workshop that is worth its weight in gold!

HUMANITIES DIPLOMA PROGRAM Winner of a National Award of Excellence The Humanities Diploma Program has received an Award of Excellence from the Canadian Association for University Continuing Education.

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, and 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.

For details or to request a brochure, please see www.continuingstudies.uvic.ca/humanities/ or call 250-721-8481.

SAGESTIMULATE, ADVANCE AND GUIDE EDUCATION An Exciting Learning Alternative! Would you like to exchange ideas and pursue some of your favourite subjects with a small group of other interested people? If so, become involved in our SAGE program.

SAGE Study Groups 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 McDonald at 250-721-8827. No experience necessary! We provide the training.

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 full- or part-time study in the humanities, and who may need an introduction to university study. Its flexibility will enable you to choose, in consultation with a program and faculty coordinator, a particular topic, theme or area of study and to arrange a selection of day or evening courses directed toward that topic. Emphasis will be placed on interdisciplinary approaches, in order to make full use of the resources of all humanities departments at the university. An orientation session is offered each fall to familiarize you with the library, essay writing and study skills.

Persian for Beginners—Part 1

The Structures of Arabic

Also known as Farsi or Parsi, and closely related to Dari or Tajik, the Persian language is widely spoken today in Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and to some extent in Armenia, Iraq, Bahrain and Oman. It is among the most used languages in the blogosphere. This course, taught by a native speaker of Persian, will give you useful “survival” oral skills and introduce you to reading and writing of the Perso-Arabic script.

This course can be taken after Introduction to Arabic. It can even be taken as an introductory course by those who prefer a more formal and structural approach to the language.

Instructor: Nooshafarin Saberi was born in Kuwait to a Persian family and grew up speaking, reading and writing Persian and Arabic. She also became fluent in English after spending a year in England, and then 22 years in Luxembourg added another three languages to her palette. She and her family came to Canada in 2002, and she has enjoyed teaching at Continuing Studies since 2006.

Not all meditation involves stillness. We tend to equate meditation with quiet and stillness, but in some cultures the path to peace and enlightenment can involve a very different approach. The poetry of Persian Mystic Jalalludin Rumi has become very popular in North America over the last 20 years, and has spawned a great interest in Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam from which Rumi emerged. Come learn about Rumi’s life and philosophy, and experience the ecstatic Sufi chanting ritual of zhikr (“remembrance”) and the moving meditation of whirling (as a dervish) in a practical, well-paced workshop that caters to all ages and physical abilities— see Ruminations: Learn to Whirl on the Sufi Path on page 28.

Argentina: Culture and Geography Argentina, the eighth largest country in the world, and second largest country in South America, has been named “El país de los seis continentes” (the Country of Six Continents) due to its strikingly diverse geography, history and culture. However, because of its turbulent politics, economic ups and downs, and geographical isolation, Argentina has remained well off the beaten travel path, its charms known only to the adventurous traveller. During our three-week stay, we will explore the rich cultural heritage and diverse geographical regions that this country has to offer. We will have the opportunity to observe and experience the cultural sophistication of Buenos Aires as well as the topographical beauty of the pampas, the rain forest on the Brazilian border, and the wine-producing regions of the Andean Northwest. This exciting tour will include a tango lesson at the traditional Escuela Argentina de Tango; a show at the elegant Teatro Colón; possibly a live soccer or polo match; a visit to the Plaza de Mayo (where the Madres do their weekly round to remember their “disappeared” sons and daughters); a stop at Evita’s tomb in the Recoleta cemetery; a visit to the wineries of Cafayate, where we will sample Argentina’s unique Torrontés grape; a traditional asado criollo

Art History of the Southwest: Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico Join us to discover the unique qualities of the desert which have inspired artists for thousands of years. In the 20th century New Mexico was the spiritual home for internationally renowned artist Georgia O’Keeffe, and a rich source of inspiration for Lawren Harris, who also made New Mexico his home in the late 1930s. Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico attracted writers and artists of the Bloomsbury Group as well, most notably, D.H. Lawrence. We will travel the special landscape of the American Southwest with a particular focus on both the indigenous cultures, particularly the Hopi, Zuni, Tewa and Navajo, and the life and works of Georgia O’Keeffe. Flying from Victoria to Phoenix, via San Francisco, we will visit galleries and museums such as the Heard in Phoenix and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe. Included will be dedicated trips to historic sites such as Taos Pueblo, Georgia O’Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch near Abiquiu and writer D.H. Lawrence’s cabin on his ranch near Taos. We will also have time to explore and enjoy Santa Fe as our base for much of the tour.

The pace is unhurried—only one hotel stay is shorter than three nights, and travel is by private coach.

Coming to the UVic Campus The University of Victoria encourages visitors to use sustainable transportation to get to campus: transit, walking, cycling and carpooling. For detailed information on travel choices available to you, please visit www.uvic.ca/sustainability/ operations/transportation/alternative/.

Parking Pay parking is in effect Monday to Saturday, 24 hours, except at University Centre Parkade and the Ian H. Stewart Complex, where pay parking is in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Parking permits may be purchased at any of the parking permit dispensers located in the numbered lots outside Ring Road, including the Ian Stewart Complex. These permits are valid only in the General Parking areas (coded blue on sign posts) in numbered lots only, not at parking meters or Reserved parking areas (coded red on sign posts). The lettered lots (inside Ring Road) are for Reserved permit holders until after 4:30 pm weekdays, at which time general permit holders may park. The “after 4:30” rule for General Parking permits does not apply to the areas marked “24-hour Reserved.” Dispensers accept both coin and credit cards. The University Centre Parkade has limited parking and due to the rate structure, only permits purchased in the parkade are valid in the parkade. Permits must be displayed in clear view on the vehicle dashboard so that both the expiry date and time can be easily inspected. There are a number of short-term, coin-operated parking meters provided for visitor use. For further parking information and special requests, please call Campus Security Services at 250-721-6683.
