What is the space for affect and local-ness in contemporary performance?

Robert W. Park | November 21, 2012

The challenge of mapping the Canadian Arctic fascinated European explorers for centuries. Much of what most people know about the Arctic has been shaped by the tragic deaths of a few of those explorers, most famously all the member of Sir John Franklin's 1845 expedition. This presentation will discuss the history of European explorations of the Canadian Arctic and describe what recent archaeological research has revealed about the lives and deaths of these explorers, along with what still remains to be learned.

"Composing the Body via YouTube"

Jennifer Sano-Franchini

In this talk, I explore how the body is composed via YouTube through a study of representations of East Asian double eyelid surgery in online video. These videos--ranging from mass media excerpts and news reports, to journals of healing and recovery, to short lectures on surgeon techniques, to audience commentary--provide a rich range of perspectives rationalizing the technological modification of bodies.

University of Waterloo Professor Andrew Hunt will be joining the Bookstore Thursday, to launch City of Saints. As winner of the 2011 Tony Hillerman Prize we are excited to gain deeper insights into the book and author.

To the outside observer, Salt Lake City might seem to be the squeaky-clean “City of Saints”—its nickname since Mormon pioneers first arrived. Its wide roads, huge Mormon temple topped by a horn-blowing angel, and orderly neighbourhoods give it the appearance of the ideal American city, but looks can be deceiving.
