Heritage Lecture – Chinatown Through a Wide Lens: The Hidden Photographs of Yucho Chow – CANCELLED

March 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6H 1V1 Canada

Chinatown Through a Wide Lens: The Hidden Photographs of Yucho Chow

Vancouver’s first and most prolific Chinese photographer, Yucho Chow, operated a commercial studio in the heart of Chinatown from 1907–1949. He chronicled life during a tumultuous and transformative time in Canadian history and captured the faces of early marginalized communities including South Asians, Black Canadians, Indigenous residents, mixed-race families and Eastern European immigrants. For some communities, he was the only photographer willing to take their portraits. Sadly, his negatives – and the individual stories and history they chronicled – were all discarded when his studio closed. Chinatown curator Catherine Clement spent over eight years uncovering Yucho Chow’s photographs – one family at a time, one photo at a time, one story at a time.

TICKETS
UWCV Members & students $10
Members Guests $15
Public $16
Tickets will be sold at the door (cash only).

Wicked Women and Mad Men Talks – Dr. Kina Caviocchioli – Cancelled

April 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6H 1V1 Canada

Talk Title: Ariosto's Orlando: The Knight Mad with Love

Kina Caviocchioli came to Canada as a graduate student from the UK more than 20 years ago. Her plan was to spend three years at UBC, complete a Ph.D. on Victorian Women's Ghost Stories, and have an adventure in the wilds of BC before going home to London. Instead, she fell in love with the West Coast and stayed. The Ph.D. on ghost stories remains hauntingly unfinished. In 2007 Kina joined the English Department at Langara College, where she teaches courses in everything from business writing to theatre history. She is currently the English Department Chair. When she isn't teaching, Kina writes poetry, fantasizes about becoming a stand-up comedian, and runs away to Tofino as often as possible.

Please register with the office by Friday, March 27th.
