“ReImagining Masculinities” Conference comes to UVic

The SJS Program is excited to announce that on May 11, 2018, ReImagining Masculinities will be hosting a full-day conference at the David Lam Auditorium. The conference seeks to advance conversations on non-violent, healthy masculinities and social justice. This conference is not officially endorsed by the SJS program, however we strongly support its message and encourage attendance for those who are interested.

TÁR

The personage of symphonic conductor and music composer Lydia Tár (Cate Blanchett) is so towering and detailed that that it's possible to forget that she is a work of fiction. Writer/director ToddField gifts us with a rare thing in his third film: a character study of a complicated and commanding woman. TÁR burrows into the discrepancies between the public image of Lydia Tár and her personalshortcomings. Although at the peak of her career, it is clear Tár is heading for a fall. An extended sequence of a Juilliard master class reveals Tár's mercilessness as a teacher as she confronts astudent for prioritizing politics over music. Eventually, the cancel culture that Tár condemns arrives for her.
