Explore how people lived together in the ancient cities of Greece and Rome (from the second millennium BC to the sixth century of our era). Learn about the cultural, political, and geographical influences that shaped civic life, how these cities were transformed at the end of antiquity, and how the factors behind the triumphs of the ancient city continue to affect us today.

April 16 –  Marinate Me: 2013/2014 BFA BA Visual Art Graduating Exhibition

Don’t miss the Annual UBC Visual Art Graduating Exhibition. The conceptual theme of “Marinate Me” speaks to students’ immersion in educational theory, or their intentional lack thereof. Either by rejecting the system and being thrown on the grill raw, or by reflecting their seasoned array of knowledge that has been years marinating, students will serve up their work to a public audience.

April 17 – Debunking Digital Myths: Online Tracking

Have you ever noticed advertisements being tailored to your previous searches? Well, this is no coincidence. This interactive session outlines the issues of website tracking and online privacy, and how these concepts continue to evolve with the advent of new technology and applications.

Good luck with exams!
