The exhibition presents over 100 works including photographs, test prints, silkscreens, 16 mm and Super 8 film and collaborative video works. Wojnarowicz (1954–1992) came into prominence in the New York art world of the 1980s, actively embracing all media and forging an expansive range of work both fiercely political and highly personal. First displayed in storefront galleries in the East Village, his work had already gained national prominence by the time he was diagnosed with HIV in 1988. From the late 1970s until his death in 1992, Wojnarowicz produced a body of work that was as conceptually rigorous as it was stylistically diverse, resolutely and fervently political at a time when the AIDS epidemic was cutting down a generation of artists due in large part to government inaction. David Wojnarowicz: Photography & Film 1978–1992 reflects on Wojnarowicz as a source for both art-making and activism at a time of political and personal uncertainty. The exhibition sheds light on a practice that has been exemplary and inspirational, not only for his contemporaries but also for current generations.

Alumni/Staff/Faculty/Wesbrook & UEL residents 2 for 1. https://theatrefilm.ubc.ca/events/buy-tickets/. “She that in life and love refuses me, In death and shame my partner she shall be.”   A tale of hidden sexual desires, bloody deeds, and characters who realize their intentions are less than pure, Thomas Middleton and William Rowley’s The Changeling is one of the darkest and most sensual of the 17th century English tragedies.    The beautiful Beatrice, falls hard for Alsemero, who shares her feelings but Beatrice’s marriage to Alonzo de Piracquo, approved by her father Vermandero, is planned. Being a Jacobean tragedy, the solution turns to murder. Despite being repelled by his disfigured face, Beatrice enlists her father’s servant De Flores to do the deed, little realizing that he lusts after her and will refuse money, preferring, and eventually insisting upon, payment of another kind.   *Contains adult themes and may not be suitable for younger audiences.    January 16 – February 1, 2020, 7:30 pm Telus Studio Theatre, Chan Centre for the Performing Arts 6265 Crescent Rd.

"I have been labeled as a wanderer this is not the case I have a home it's just that it's an inconvenient place right now" Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a humorously dark folk tale woven together with a high- energy concert. This Klezmer music/theatre hybrid, starring genre-bending sensation Ben Caplan, is inspired by the true story of two Jewish Romanian refugees coming to Canada in 1908. It’s about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war. It’s about refugees who get out before it’s too late, and those who get out after it’s too late. And it’s about looking into the eyes of God.   2b is a Halifax-based, internationally-acclaimed theatre company creating works for the regional, national, and international stages. Artistic co-directors Christian Barry and Anthony Black share a commitment to create, develop, and produce new work that is distinguished by innovation in staging, polish in design, and virtuosity in performance.

BARBER LEARNING CENTRE. $52.50. Trace the origins and development of human culture from the earliest archaeological evidence ca. 3.3 million years ago at the start of the Stone Age, to the end of the Ice Age ca. 12,000 years ago, when humans lived as hunters, gatherers and foragers. Examine fossils and archaeological material, mainly from Africa, Europe and Asia, and explore some of the ways that archaeologists recover, collect and analyze this evidence to interpret the human past. Study how early humans and technology emerged in Africa and spread to other areas of the Old World, and how anatomically and behaviourally “modern” humans developed and dispersed. You have opportunities to “touch” the past through hands-on examination of fossil casts and original archaeological materials. Get experience learning how to read a fossil and how to identify what characteristics distinguish them as part of our human ancestral lineage. Discover how humans made and used the earliest technology – flaked stone tools – and what role they played in various aspects of early societies. If you’re interested in human antiquity, anthropology or archaeology – and how we got to where we are today – this course provides a deep historical perspective. By appreciating our collective cultural origins, we can better understand where humanity has come from; why we inhabit nearly every landscape on earth; how we coped with past environmental challenges; and how our past may inform us about future challenges. DAVID POKOTYLO, PhD, is a UBC Professor Emeritus in UBC Department of Anthropology. He specializes in the study of ancient technology, specifically stone tool industries, and the archaeology of hunter-gatherer-forager societies. In pursuing these research interests over the past four decades, he has carried out archaeological fieldwork in northwestern North America, east Africa and northern China.

Whilst various medieval recipes couldn't do the trick, modern physicists do this on a regular basis. By smashing high energy particle beams into radioactive targets, researchers at Triumf and across the world are simulating nuclear reactions that happen throughout our universe...

"Tracking Generation X: Insights and Findings from the Edmonton Transitions Study" The Edmonton Transitions Study (ETS) has tracked a cohort of high school seniors for 32 years (1985 – 2017), from late adolescence to early midlife (age 18 to 50), with eight waves of data collection. In his review of selected ETS findings, Dr. Krahn will discuss the value of longitudinal research for addressing complex sociological research questions, the interpretative insights offered by a life course theoretical perspective, and the experience of working with an inter-disciplinary research team. This talk is the 2020 Kaspar Naegele Honorary Lecture, and part of the Distinguished Lecture Series 2019/2020. Reception to Follow.

Tuesday, February 4th from 12pm-1pm, Dodson Room, Irving K. Barber Learning Centre All too often, scholarly citation is approached by undergraduates as a frustrating obstacle on the path to completing a writing assignment, rather than as an intellectual pursuit in its own right. This workshop aims to reframe that mindset by demystifying the who, what, when, where, and why of citational practices. No matter the citation style they are being asked to engage with, participants will come away from this workshop with a greater understanding of the purpose behind citation, as well as a pragmatic conception of how to apply that understanding in their own academic writing. The workshop is appropriate for undergraduates at any level, though first year students who have not yet taken “Introduction to Academic Reading and Writing” may wish to do so first.

Master of Applied Science Oral Defence - Master of Applied Science in Civil Engineering Caroline Cimon will defend the thesis titled: Effect Of Biochar And Wood Ash Amendment On Biochemical Methane Production Of Wastewater Sludge From A Temperature Phase Anaerobic Digestion Process In Canada, sludge processing accounts for 50% of the cost of operating wastewater treatment plants. Conventional anaerobic digestion (AD) is a biochemical process that reduces the volume of sludge and produces consumable energy in the form of methane. However, it requires a long time (> 20 days). Addition of biochar could increase diversity and retention of microorganisms in AD while increasing methane production rate and, therefore, reduce operation and capital costs. This study compares biochar with a lower priced similar material, wood ash, the findings show that both materials can have positive effects on AD efficacy. Adsorption of volatile fatty acids by biochar is a factor that was considered for the first time in this research.

They say that “failing to plan is the same as planning to fail”. By focusing on developing sound project management skills and processes, projects are more realistically budgeted for and resourced, risks are managed and mitigated, and projects are far more likely to be executed on time without severe consequences to people. This is a project management workshop with a difference. As opposed to a day of dry theory, participants are exposed to a live, simulated project where they have to build a physical structure within an allotted time. As the project management methodology is introduced through the day, participants apply it to the simulation over successive rounds, and the difference in project execution becomes evident in a compelling way. Not only is the learning intense – it is also fun!

With roots in Vancouver and a family background in Germany, she started her musical journey growing up in Germany. Her path has led her to extensive collaborations with other instruments, as well as concerts in various settings. Knowing that music will always be a part of her life, she returned to Vancouver to follow her passion and study music. Isabelle is currently in her 3rd undergraduate year at UBC. Bringing music to people is pure joy and the best return is the happiness or appreciation from her audiences. Shanti-Ella Cretu is currently in her third year of her flute performance degree at the University of British Columbia, where she studies with Brenda Fedoruk. She has performed in the UBC Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Ensemble, and toured with them to San Francisco in her first year.

Free. Join the Department of Psychology for a talk with Dr. Niall Bolger, Professor of Psychology at University of Columbia LOCATION: Suedfeld Lounge | Kenny Building 2510 TITLE: Causal Processes in Psychology are Heterogeneous ABSTRACT: All experimenters know that subjects do not respond uniformly to experimental treatments. Yet, theories and practices in psychology typically ignore this heterogeneity or treat it as error. Using data from multiple repeated-measures experiments, I will illustrate in this talk the importance of experimental effect heterogeneity for theory, methods, analysis, and best research practices. BIOGRAPHY: Niall Bolger, PhD, is a Professor of Psychology at Columbia University in the city of New York, where he directs the Columbia Couples lab and teaches courses on social relationships, linear statistical models, and longitudinal data analysis. His main research interests include adjustment processes in close relationships using intensive longitudinal methods and laboratory-based studies of dyadic behaviour, emotion and physiology, and personality processes as they are revealed in patterns of behaviour, emotion, and physiology in daily life. He is also interested in statistical methods for analyzing longitudinal and multilevel data. Dr. Bolger is a Charter Member and Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science, a Fellow of the Society of Experimental Social Psychology and of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, and a member of the Society for Multivariate Experimental Psychology. ------- Annually the Department of Psychology hosts a Colloquia Series throughout the academic year. This exciting program brings us together outside of the classroom to have conversations with the speakers we’ve invited to our campus to share their ideas. You’ll have the chance to hear from international speakers on a wide range of provocative topics.

It contributes to recent research on media and environment and the general ‘material turn’ taken across the Humanities. I conceive of salt as what Peters (2015) calls an ‘elemental’ medium so as to show, first, the imbrication of naturally-occurring substances in the operations and supply chains of digital culture. Second, I show how the many lives salt has lived materially, in techniques of survival and exchange, and metaphorically, in cultural expression, complicate conventional understandings of media. In showing how salt performs three functions, processing, storage, and transfer, which Kittler (1999) ascribed to technical and symbolic media, I argue for a more expansive use of ‘mediation’ as a bridge concept that speaks to matters of nature and culture, Arts and Science, and that accounts for deep histories of extraction and economy that shape digital culture and global supply chains.

Free. Join us for a series of events on Black Activism in Education and Community as we showcase examples of how Black communities have responded to racism in Vancouver and in Canada. Recent and ongoing incidents in Vancouver and Canada illustrate that anti-Black racism is very much a local reality. Black communities that include activists, artists and academics have a long history of working to create new narratives, analyses and immersive experiences that shift this reality. This event highlights the thinking and efforts of Black communities, and aims to expand the public conversation and prompt non-Black communities to act in effective solidarity to dismantle anti-Black racism. Our special guest for this event is Shelby McPhee, a recent graduate of Acadia University, who will share stories and comments on how to recognize and address anti-Black racism. The event is jointly hosted by the UBC Black Caucus, Centre for Culture, Identity and Education, and the Equity & Inclusion Office. Free, but registration is required.

Free. Join us for a lively discussion about the walls we do not see right in front of us. Walls are a mundane, often invisible, but fundamental part of our lives, which means they offer fruitful avenues for consideration. In this talk, I consider the multiple meanings of walls. This turns something taken-for-granted into an object which unveils hidden power relations, expressions of identity, and the way walls can either maintain the landscape of our lives, or interrupt life-as-it-was. This is especially the case when colonizers bring changes in housing. Inuit living in Arviat, Nunavut, work at perpetually enacting and fortifying their unique way of viewing the world. Being “walled-in” has a profound effect on the transmission of knowledge in two ways. First, walls inhibit traditional disciplining of children. Second, walls change the transmission of skilled knowledge in gendered ways.

Master of Applied Science Oral Defence - Master of Applied Science in Civil Engineering Md Firoz Mahmood Ovi will defend the thesis titled: SMARTer Growth Neighborhood Design Manual: Application to Existing Neighborhoods Urbanization is putting immense pressure on global infrastructure. Uncontrolled rapid urbanization and motorization of cities are one of the main causes of Urban Sprawl. This sprawl alters the structure and pattern of cities, making it socially, economically, and environmentally unsustainable. Urban Sprawl is associated with traffic fatalities, physical inactivity, obesity, and increased GHG emissions. Urban planners and engineers are researching new methods to eliminate the negative impacts of urban sprawl. SMARTer Growth (SG) Neighborhood design or previously know as Fused Grid (FG) Neighborhood Design has been identified as a reliable planning technique that can effectively fight urban sprawl while making neighborhoods more sustainable and liveable. Macro-level collision prediction models were developed in this study to evaluate the traffic safety condition of the neighborhoods under study. SG was introduced to evaluate two existing neighborhoods, and macro-level collision prediction models were applied to assess the traffic safety of the existing neighborhoods and the retrofitted designs. The comparison between the existing neighborhoods and the retrofitted designs showed a 62% reduction in the total number of collisions for the retrofit design of Capri-Landmark, Kelowna, BC, Canada, and 56% reduction in the total number of collisions for the retrofit design for Gulshan, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Additionally, the suite of tools toward SMARTer Growth (SG) Neighborhood Design Manual was applied to evaluate these retrofitted designs. Based on the evaluation, the health outcomes and quality of life of the residents in the proposed retrofit designs were discussed.

IOF Seminar Series Speaker: Kyra St-Pierre Postdoctoral Fellow, Pelagic Ecosystems Lab Climate change is occurring more dramatically across northern regions than anywhere else on the planet. Warming and wetting are leading to increased glacial melt, permafrost thaw, and lengthened growing season, already resulting in transformative changes to the structure and function of freshwater ecosystems. But the impact of these changes may extend much further, beyond the coastlines that delineate the boundary between land and sea. The land-to-ocean aquatic continuum concept acknowledges that changes on land have important consequences for the quality and function of coastal waters, linked by rivers and streams that integrate changes happening across the watersheds that they drain. Using case studies from watersheds in the Canadian Arctic and the Central Coast of British Columbia, we will show the impact of wide scale landscape processes to the transport and processing of key nutrients and pollutants, highlighting the potential consequences of such changes on the quality and function of coastal waters.

When Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers join forces to poach the rare totoaba fish in the Sea of Cortez, their deadly methods threaten to destroy virtually all marine life in the region, including the most elusive and endangered whale species on Earth, the vaquita porpoise. SEA OF SHADOWS follows a team of dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists and courageous undercover agents as well as the Mexican Navy as they put their lives on the line to save the last remaining vaquitas and bring the vicious international crime syndicate to justice. The SEA OF SHADOWS screening will be followed by a panel discussion.

Registration is essential via the form below. Lecture abstract: Professor Ketelaar will draw on his most recent research into the concepts of the barbarian and the frontier in the construction of Japanese national identity and history; coupled with this he will examine something of the roles and meanings of emotion in the construction of the historical imagination in Japan. All of which will be used in a critical approach to the area known as Japan Studies. About the John Howes Lecture in Japanese Studies: John Howes was a founding member of UBC’s Department of Asian Studies, which he joined in 1961 after earning his doctorate from Columbia University. During his 30 years of active teaching and research, Professor Howes was at the forefront of Canada-Japan cultural, educational and people-to-people relations and inspired countless young Canadians to dedicate their careers and lives to the Canada-Japan relationship in one way or another. In 2012, a number of UBC faculty, staff, and Professor Howes’ devoted former students came together to launch an endowment in his honour. The fund supports the John Howes Lecture in Japanese Studies, an annual public lecture for prominent scholars from around the world to speak to the university community and alumni on topics in Japanese Studies with a focus on Humanities. Dr. Howes passed away peacefully on February 4th, 2017, at the age of 92.

ABSTRACT With major advances in molecular technologies, we stand at the cusp of groundbreaking discoveries in the field of precision prevention. These discoveries will allow us to not only target resource-intensive interventions to those at the very highest risk of developing cancer but to identify new and more effective intervention strategies with which to address the growing population burden of cancer. Using examples from his own research, the speaker will illustrate the benefits and challenges associated with a precision prevention approach to cancer research. The speaker will also discuss resources that he is currently developing to support innovative, multi-disciplinary research in cancer prevention. PRESENTED BY Dr. Parveen Bhatti is a highly experienced cancer epidemiologist whose internationally recognized research program uses molecular markers to identify new interventions and improve delivery of existing interventions to reduce the population burden of cancer. He spent 15 years in the United States training and working in the field of cancer epidemiology at institutions such as the University of Washington, the National Institutes of Health and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Having been born and raised in northern British Columbia, Parveen was excited to return home in 2018 to join BC Cancer as Scientific Director of Cancer Prevention. Parveen is principal investigator of the BC Generations Project, a large, population-based research platform that supports innovative research in cancer prevention. He is also principal investigator of an NIH-funded birth cohort study in China that is being established to improve our ability to identify early life factors that contribute to the development of chronic disease, including cancer.

Presented by Dr. Skye Barbic (CHÉOS, UBC Faculty of Medicine, Foundry) and Alicia Raimundo (Foundry) Location: Hurlburt Auditorium, St. Paul's Hospital At the World Economic Forum in January 2020, an urgent call was made to invest in programs that expand access to care for young people. In response to this crisis, British Columbia has been re-conceiving how services are delivered, specifically in the form of integrated youth health services (IYHS). The emerging field of IYHS studies the way in which service transformation meets the needs of young people and their families. This talk will highlight novel ways to engage young people in research to improve the health outcomes of youth and communities, using a multi-disciplinary lens and responding to the pressing issues faced by young people (particularly, vulnerable youth).

Doctoral Dissertation Oral Defence - Doctor of Philosophy in Civil Engineering Charles Rockson will defend the dissertation titled: Bond Behaviour Of Commercially Produced Structural Concrete Made OF Recycled Coarse And Fine Aggregates Recycled concrete aggregates (RCAs) offer a sustainable solution to the multifarious exigent crises involving the ever-increasing demand of virgin aggregates and the disposal of construction and demolition waste arising from demolishing non-serviceable infrastructures. However, the use of RCA in concrete is mostly limited to non-structural purposes at a limited replacement proportion of the virgin aggregates in the standards and codes. Also, using an appropriate test method to quantitatively determine the bond behaviour of steel rebar in recycled structural concrete in addition to the other several variables affecting the bond remains unexplored. This study presents the results of an experimental program on the bond behavior between commercially produced quality recycled concrete and deformed steel rebars. Seventy beam-end specimens were tested using the ASTM A944-15, where critical variables affecting bond behaviour, such as cover, bond length, bar size, bar position, and transverse reinforcement were investigated. The results showed that the bond strengths were conservative with several descriptive and code design equations, as well as fitting into the current ACI408 database for conventional concrete. In addition, a new descriptive model was also proposed and validated. Thus the bond concerns on using quality recycled aggregates as structural concrete have been scrutinized in this study.

Join us for a presentation and discussion by award winning Louise Delisle on environmental racism in black communities in Nova Scotia. About this Event: As the topics of climate and environmental justice gain traction all over the world, it's crucial to remember to the historical oppressions faced by marginalized communities. For Black History Month the UBC Climate Hub, UBC Black Student Union and the Center for Community Engaged Learning have collaborated to organize this event that centres the black communities in Canada as they face historical and present day environmental racism. Our esteemed speaker, Louise Delisle, will be presenting on her work and lived experience in Nova Scotia. Louise will talk about how environmental racism has impacted her community for generations and she'll talk about what the community is doing to address the issue. Louise is the founder of the award winning organization South End Environmental Injustice Society (SEED). Afterwards, we will be having a broader discussion on anti-blackness, environmental racism, and climate justice. We will have food available! Everyone is welcome to attend this event! Equity, diversity, and inclusion are critical to a climate just future for all. We encourage participation in this event from members of groups that have been historically, persistently, or systemically marginalized in climate change conversations. We especially seek participation from those who identify as Black or Indigenous ; and those who have experienced marginalization from racialization, disability, political belief, disciplinary training, religion, marital or family status, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. We acknowledge that this event is happening on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people.

This workshop introduces researchers to the typical structure of an annotated bibliography, while accounting for variations in purpose. Typically, the annotations synthesize multiple studies, help develop a discussion of the current field, and help identify a potential knowledge contribution. Research shows that annotated bibliographies across disciplines typically consist of 3 parts: the full bibliographic citation; a relevant academic summary; a critical evaluation. But how do authors determine relevance? What does it mean to write critical annotations? Workshop facilitators draw on research to address these questions, while discussing this text as a type of literature survey with its own distinct patterns of organization. Participants will write or revise an annotated bibliography and receive feedback from the workshop facilitators and other participants. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with an annotated bibliography underway. <strong>Workshop Facilitators:</strong> <a href="https://ikblc.ubc.ca/patty-a-kelly/?login" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Dr. Patty Kelly</a> & Eury Chang (Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication) Register for and find more information about this workshop at: <a href="https://libcal.library.ubc.ca/event/3531357" target="_blank">https://libcal.library.ubc.ca/event/3531357</a> Audience - Graduate Students Audience - Undergraduate Students Subject - Personal And Professional Development - Students Type - Workshop Physiological Breech Workshop https://www.calendar.events.ubc.ca/cal/event/eventView.do?subid=94708&calPath=%2Fpublic%2FEvents+Calendar%2FFaculty+of+Medicine+-+Continuing+Professional+Development&guid=CAL-09d22401-6fa4a8b3-016f-a5f54ef6-00000020myubc-team@interchange.ubc.ca&recurrenceId= Fri, 14 Feb 2020 10:00 PST Fri, February 14, 2020 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM See description. This RCM-approved workshop is for all maternity care providers including obstetricians, family physicians, midwives, nurses and learners. The workshop will provide an engaging and interactive update on professional skills to facilitate physiological breech births, planned or unexpected, and how to teach these skills to others. The focus is on collaborative, multi-professional working to improve the safety of vaginal breech birth using the skills of all maternity care professionals. Training will include: • A research update • Thorough theoretical and hands-on explanations of how breech babies journey through the maternal pelvis in a completely spontaneous birth (the breech mechanisms), enabling you to distinguish between normal progress and dystocia • Hands-on simulation of complicated breech births and resolutions, using narratives and videos of real breech complications, to enable you to practice problem-solving in real time • Models of breech care that work within modern perinatal services • Access to video resources following the training • Resource booklet containing presentations and the Physiological Breech Algorithm Resume Review - Drop in https://www.calendar.events.ubc.ca/cal/event/eventView.do?subid=94921&calPath=%2Fpublic%2FEvents+Calendar%2FStudents+%28Okanagan%29&guid=CAL-09d22401-6f33c5a1-016f-33f2ab16-00000007myubc-team@interchange.ubc.ca&recurrenceId=20200214T180000Z Fri, 14 Feb 2020 10:00 PST Fri, February 14, 2020 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM University Centre.

Doctoral Dissertation Oral Defence - Doctor of Philosophy in Biology Lukman Sarker will defend the dissertation titled: Structural And Regulatory Genes Controlling The Biosynthesis Of Essential Oil Constituents in Lavender Lavender is an economically important plant known for its essential oils (EO), which is dominated by a group of small, volatile biochemical compounds known as monoterpenoids. To understand the genetic basis of lavender EO constituent production, we developed a comprehensive transcriptome database, which facilitates the discovery of structural and regulatory genes involved in terpenoids biosynthesis, as well as other important processes such as defense against pest and herbivores. Further, we employed a Yeast One-Hybrid Assay to identify transcription factors that control the expression of two important genes responsible for the production of linalool and cineole in lavenders. Finally, we cloned genes for two acetyltransferase enzymes involved in the conversion of monoterpenes to their corresponding esters in lavender plants.

Master of Applied Science Oral Defence - Master of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering Arpin Bhullar will defend the thesis titled: Okanagan Valve: The Next Generation of Mechanical Heart Valves Valvular heart disease is a heart condition that is defined by damage to any of the four valves within the human heart. This damage is categorized by either insufficient blood flowing through or excessive blood flowing backwards through the valve. These conditions are caused by calcium growth and thickening heart valve tissue. The most common symptom is chest pain, and the condition can be fatal if untreated. Mechanical heart valves (MHV) can be surgically implanted to replace a failing valve but require life-long consumption of blood thinners, such as Warfarin, to deal with blood clotting issues. This research was conducted to design and validate a bileaflet MHV (BMHV) that would perform like natural heart valves, enabling implantation without the need for post operative blood thinners. Our tests with a heart simulator corroborated the results of our numerical study, showing potential for medication-free implantation of the Okanagan Valve.

FREE!. Winter Public Performance (February 21, 2020, 2-4pm) Conflict Theatre’s FREE Public Performance offers a new way to look at old patterns and the opportunity to build the courage and confidence to approach workplace conflict authentically and productively. Together, we will reflect on conflict, recognize shared struggles, and embrace different perspectives – all without the high-stakes of real life. Conflict Theatre uses the tools of arts-based, experiential education to explore real conflicts and lived experience of staff, faculty, and students working in Higher Education. The plays that we will present will be the culmination of the plays created by UBC's Conflict Theatre Community of Practice during the Playbuilding Course. During the performance, some audience members voluntarily become part of the story by jumping on stage to explore how the story might play out differently. (Note: No acting experience required, and no pressure -- everyone is welcome to attend and participate at their own comfort level.)

Healthy @ Home is a strategic health promotion campaign that promotes primary and secondary disease prevention and management seeking to keep patients, especially seniors at home, healthy and independent. Building on this momentum, in February 2020, iCON will be hosting a free health forum targeted for low-income seniors and their families in the Vancouver Chinese community. Seniors often face challenges that prevent them from living happily and healthily at home. This includes falls, chronic muscle and joint pain, access to nutritious food, depression and social isolation. In an effort to support these seniors to be Healthy @ Home, iCON, using a culturally specific approach, will be partnering with the Ministry of Health, Health Authorities, and local non-profit health and community organizations to help improve patient self-management skills and understanding of injury prevention. Local health experts from the community will provide education about chronic disease management associated with different types of arthritis and osteoporosis. Participants will also have opportunities to pose questions to the experts.

SCHEDULE When: Presentation: Tuesday February 25th, 2020 12:00pm – 1:00pm Where: B104, SPPH, 2206 East Mall ABSTRACT Understanding how the built, natural and social environment influences cancer risk is crucial in developing prevention activities at an individual, community and policy level. In this presentation Dr Dummer will outline his vision for cancer prevention in SPPH and beyond. This vision is built on two pillars: a research agenda focused on environmental causes of cancer and capacity building through scientific leadership. Specific examples of Dr Dummer’s research in relation to arsenic exposure, the built environment and the creation of Canada’s largest population-based cohort study will be used to illuminate his vision, providing a roadmap for cancer prevention research moving forward. PRESENTED BY Dr. Trevor Dummer is a health geographer and geographic information scientist with a PhD in environmental epidemiology. Trevor relocated to Canada from the UK over a decade ago and was initially Research Director and then Associate Professor in the Population Cancer Research Program at Dalhousie University. He joined UBC in 2014 as an Associate Professor in SPPH. In 2018 Trevor was appointed National Scientific Co-Director of the 300,000+ Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project – Canada’s national longitudinal cancer and chronic disease cohort. Dr. Dummer’s career has been dedicated to understanding how the environment influences health. For the past 12 years he has focused on cancer prevention, leading many inter-disciplinary studies to evaluate the environmental, behavioural and social causes of cancer. In recent work he has adopted an integrated knowledge translation approach to drive prevention and ensure scientific evidence informs policy and practice.

Presented by: Carole Lunny, MPH, PhD When: Wednesday, February 26th, 2020 at 12:00 noon Pacific time Where: Rudy North Lecture Theatre (CBH 101) in the Centre for Brain Health, UBC Point Grey Campus OR remotely through webinar About the topic: Navigating the expanding body of research literature is an increasing problem for health practitioners, researchers, and decision-makers. The number of published systematic reviews (SRs) being produced yearly is expanding. ‘Overviews of systematic reviews’ have evolved in response to the growing number of SRs. While the methods for conducting SRs are well developed, the methods for overviews are still evolving and authors often encounter unique methodological challenges. While many methods have been proposed to address some of these unique challenges, there is often a range of different methods that could be applied, but without guidance on which approach might be optimal. We developed a systematic review to catalogue the full range of overview methods, called the MOoR Framework. The objectives of this presentation are to introduce ‘overviews of systematic reviews’, describe scenarios which present unique challenges to overview authors, summarise methods used to handle or resolve challenges, and provide examples of methods used to handle the scenarios in real world overviews of reviews WiP Seminar: Dr. Christopher Fordyce - Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: Care gaps and opportunities to improve long-term survival https://www.calendar.events.ubc.ca/cal/event/eventView.do?subid=94548&calPath=%2Fpublic%2FEvents+Calendar%2FCHEOS&guid=CAL-09d22401-70591120-0170-59c59acf-00000006myubc-team@interchange.ubc.ca&recurrenceId= Wed, 26 Feb 2020 12:00 PST Wed, February 26, 2020 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM See description. Cardiac arrest is the sudden loss of heart beating. It can occur in people with or without known heart disease, and affects 40,000 Canadians per year. In British Columbia (B.C.), only 15% of these patients live (50% die before hospital, 35% die in hospital), less than 50% receive bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and only 3% receive bystander automatic external defibrillation. Due to a lack of connected data, little is known about the effect of treatments on long-term survival, brain function, and quality of life after leaving hospital. We are closing this knowledge gap by having recently developed a new provincial database linking B.C. Ambulance records with hospital charts, prescription data, and post-discharge nursing home and home care information – the first database of its kind in North America. We will evaluate the complete “journey” of each patient from 9-1-1 call, to hospital treatments, to survival and functional status long after discharge. We can now determine if current treatments affect length of survival, brain function, and quality of life, and within this framework, eventually test whether new strategies improve patient outcomes. Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.

Bring your lunch, listen, and enjoy. This week features Judith Valerie Engel. Judith Valerie Engel is a Viennese concert pianist, currently studying for her DMA at UBC in the class of Dr. Terence Dawson. She started playing the piano at five years old. Her main teachers were Pavel Gililov with whom she did her BA and MA at the Mozarteum University Salzburg, and Mag. Nina Igudesman. Further inspiration came from regular lessons or masterclasses with Paul Badura-Skoda, Matti Raekallio, Teppo Koivisto, and other well-known artists. Engel won numerous national and international competitions. Concert tours saw her performing in over a dozen European and non-European countries. Her recordings have been aired by multiple European radio and TV stations and her online videos have been widely shared with several thousand views. Her playing focusses on piano solo repertoire, as well as chamber music and art song. In addition to her piano playing, Judith Valerie Engel took singing and conducting lessons for many years to further improve and inspire her approach to music. In addition to her work as a performer, Engel is doing research on Gender Studies in music, which she also taught at the Mozarteum after finishing her Master’s and before moving to Vancouver to start her doctorate. Furthermore, she is actively involved in supporting gender equality by organising and/or participating in charity events or awareness-raising performances.

IOF Seminar Series Speaker: Dr. Jennifer Sunday Assistant Professor, McGill University As the world has warmed, species distributions have moved polewards in latitude, upwards in elevation and deeper in depth. This global redistribution calls on ecologists to apply long-standing hypotheses about the factors that limit species distributions. Here I present macrophysiological analyses showing how marine and terrestrial ectotherms differ in the extent to which they are physiologically limited within their distributional ranges. I use contemporary records of range shifts to further elucidate the relative roles of species traits and ecological interactions in mediating range shifts in a warming world. I then present work aimed at connecting physiological responses in simple experimental environments to population responses in variable and competitive environments, and share ongoing work aimed at tracking high-resolution range shifts in real-time. Jennifer Sunday is an Assistant Professor at McGill University, specializing in marine ecosystem responses to climate change through species’ range shifts, changing ecological interactions, and adaptation. Dr. Sunday currently holds a William Dawson Scholar Chair at McGill University, and a Sloan Fellowship in Ocean Sciences. Her work has contributed novel advances in understanding how physiological variables relate to species’ ranges and their climate vulnerabilities, and how climate change responses occur in the context of community interactions and temporally varying environments. In addition, Dr. Sunday is an affiliate of the Hakai Institute, where she is exploring the use of eDNA for tracking marine biodiversity responses to global change.

BARBER LEARNING CENTRE. $52.50. Ecotourism has been a popular way to balance tourism, community engagement, local development and biodiversity conservation. But is ecotourism a responsible, necessary and effective conservation tool? Through case studies from Kenya and Canada, explore the current major debates in conservation and the role that ecotourism has been given in addressing environmental pressures. Focus on the interactions between local and international interests, including the roles and influence of international travellers and prominent environmental non-governmental organizations in shaping the direction of land-use change, and human-environment relations around the world. Be inspired and challenge your assumptions about directions forward for conservation. By the end of the course, you will have a broader understanding of the complexity of these issues, and the opportunity to draw your own conclusions about ecotourism as a conservation tool. This course is ideal if you’re curious about approaches to wildlife conservation, international development, modern approaches to relations with wildlife and land-use change, environmental ethics, the challenges of climate change and large-scale human-induced biodiversity loss, and the positive and negative effects of ecotourism. ALEC BLAIR, BSc, MSc, PhD Candidate, is a sessional instructor in the UBC Department of Geography. His graduate research focuses on community-based conservation in central Kenya.

BARBER LEARNING CENTRE. $52.50. Shakespeare is one of the most studied and performed playwrights of all times; his name is instantly recognizable and his genius is accepted as fact. Yet little is known about the practical considerations and customs that informed, facilitated and, perhaps to a degree, dictated his creative process. In this course, explore what the theatre was like in Elizabethan and Jacobean England – the world in which Shakespeare and his contemporaries created some of history’s most famous English masterpieces. Understand how theatre is specific to culture, and how it exists both within and in response to the limitations of cultural and material contexts. Reflect on the theatre as a practical space, an art and as an institution. Look at the acting companies of the time and the business of theatre making, as well as the how, where, why, and for whom and by whom plays were performed. If you’ve experienced Shakespeare in drama classes, summer festivals or through your studies, or if you’re interested in theatre in general, this course will appeal to you. Enrich your experience as a theatre patron and as a reader with new tools to better understand what may not be apparent in a play’s script. You’re encouraged to share your experiences with Shakespeare in class discussions. LUCIANA SILVESTRE FERNANDES is a candidate in the Master of Fine Art in Theatre and Directing program at UBC. Both in practice and in her studies, she focuses on Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre.
