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.

Come and be inspired: A cocktail rendezvous with Barbara Kay

Wed, 2008-04-02 17:30
Royal Victoria College (RVC) Residence : 3425 rue University Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2A8

The one unifying theme that bridges the trajectories of Barbara Kay's personal, intellectual and philosophical evolution, and also explains her success as a writer, is her insatiable curiosity about human nature as it plays out in society: what human behaviours, and the cultural values that drive people, make society stronger and more confident; what make it weaker and self-doubting.
