Excavating the past in the present: Doing archaeology at the pre-Columbian city of Tiwanaku

Mon, 2008-03-17 18:00
Leacock Building : 855 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2T7

Nicole Couture, Canada Research Chair in the Anthropology of Early Urbanism, Dept of Anthropology, McGill. Drawing on her research at the ancient South American city of Tiwanaku, Nicole Couture will discuss how contemporary archaeologists study a wide range of objects and excavation contexts - whether the sumptuous palaces of kings and queens or the garbage pits of poorer neighbourhoods - to understand the complexity and diversity of past societies. She will also explore the implications of archaeological research in contemporary Latin America, including the importance of archaeological sites as symbols of both national and indigenous identity. Jointly presented by the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science as part of the new "Books and Beakers" series. Reception to follow.

Bride-ing the Shrew: Costumes that Matter

Tue, 2008-03-18 17:00 - 19:00
Arts Building : 853 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0G5

In this presentation, Barbara Hodgdon takes Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew to explore how clothes "act out" in support of historical and cultural meanings. Placing Shrew's written language of clothes against Elizabethan social customs, she investigates how theatre's fabrications have invited spectators to look at Kate's (the Shrew's) "speaking body" in performance, and how Kate's clothes play with the most serious theme of human, and theatrical, consciousness – Who am I?

2008 Bar Prize Moot

Thu, 2008-04-03 17:00 - 18:30
Chancellor Day Hall : 3644 rue Peel Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1W9

Thanks to the generous support of the Montreal and Quebec Bar Associations, the Bar Prize Moot has become an annual end-of-year tradition at the Faculty of Law. Four of this year's top oralists will plead an appeal before the Honourable Madam Justice Bich of the Court of Appeal, the Honourable Mr. Justice Silcoff of the Superior Court, and the Honourable Mr. Justice Cameron of the Court of Quebec. The mooters will debate the problem from last year's Mignault Competition. They will discuss the legal implications for parents or tutors who use their child's inheritance money without judicial authorization. The same case will form the subject matter of the competitive moot run-offs to be held on April 7 and 8, and therefore all candidates for a position on one of next year's moot teams are strongly encouraged to attend.
