UNB History at a Glance wiki

Archives Wili Logo
The UNB History at a Glance wiki, launched by UNB Archives & Special Collections, is becoming the go-to resource when looking for background information about the University of New Brunswick. Now three years old, the wiki expands upon the Archives & Special Collections’ frequently used vertical file, providing authoritative sources for information about not only UNB Presidents and Chancellors, but also UNB events, and most of the Fredericton faculties.

Please join us on Tuesday 22 April at 10:00 a.m. in Archives & Special Collections, Winslow Room # 506 as Holly Miller, Arts 3000 intern over the 2013-2014 academic year describes her experience. Over the course of her internship, Holly has researched and written entries for the Faculties of Science, Engineering, and Forestry & Environmental Management. Archives staff will make suggestions for and ask about possible future developments.

Latin American Film–Mar 12

Secret_in_their-Eyes

UNB Libraries, the New Brunswick Latino Association, and the Department of Culture & Language Studies at UNB present the award-winning Argentine film, “The Secret in Their Eyes,”
by Juan José Campanella.

Winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 2010, this film centers around a retired legal counsellor who writes a novel hoping to find closure for one of his past unresolved homicide cases and for his unreciprocated love with his superior – both of which still haunt him decades later.

This free public screening will be held in the Milham Room (Room 100), Harriet Irving Library, UNB Fredericton Campus (free parking) on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 7:00 pm.

The film will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles, and introduced by Dr. Sophie M. Lavoie.

See the trailer.

Spanish Embassy Film Series: Feb12th

The NB Latino Association, UNB Libraries, and the Dept. of Culture & Language Studies present the award-winning Mexican film, “Silent Light”  by Carlos Reygadas. This free public screening will be held on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 7:00 pm in the Milham Room (Room 100), Harriet Irving Library, UNB Campus (free parking).

Winner of the critic’s prize at the Cannes Film Festival, this film centers around Johan, a Mennonite living in Mexico, who is tormented with guilt over his extramarital affair with Marianne.  His father, best friend and wife know the truth, but Johan’s suffering has to do with his faith, which he can’t reconcile with his deeds.  Critics say: “As the fim progresses, its hypnosis becomes heightened, its spell becomes entrancing.”

Trailer:  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0841925/

The film will be shown in Spanish & Low German with English subtitles, and introduced by Dr. Sophie Lavoie.
