Gung hay fat choy! The year of the snake

Gung hay fat choy! Chinese New Year is on February 10, which will mark the beginning of the Year of the Snake. To celebrate, we thought we'd use our monthly featured photograph blog post to find some snakes in the Chung Collection.

A view of the provincial parliament buildings in Victoria, BC.From the book Picturesque Victoria, British Columbia. These photographic souvenir books were popular with tourism and development organizations from the late 19th and in to the 20th century.

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.  This lecture describes the language and practices of translation among slaves and masters in the plantation society of 18th century Suriname.  Slaves from different parts of western Africa created a creole language to talk to each other.  Two dictionaries were produced of that language through collaboration between free white men and slaves.  What did each group learn of the other?  Did the flow of information or its silencing facilitate resistance or oppression?  The lecture ends with two 19th-century figures who used language for cultural affirmation: one a former slave who wrote about Yoruba, the other a pioneering European linguist who studied the Suriname creole.

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by Green College.  The costs and benefits of globalization have long been a major debate in the literature of development economics. Arianto Patunru and Zakir Machmud argue that it is important to understand the link between globalization and poverty for the case of developing countries like Indonesia whose key objective is to fight poverty. They will discuss such nexus with specific emphases on the role of small and medium enterprises, as well as supporting infrastructure (e.g. logistics and value chain). This lecture is part of the ongoing Green College Thematic Series: “Public Health Law and Policy in Asia.”
