HopkinsatHome May 26, May 26, TuesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home May 26, 2020 - June 23, 2020 (5 weeks) Tuesdays, 5:30pm - 6:30pm EDT Geoffrey Chaucer is sometimes called the 'father of English literature' not only because he wrote so well but because he has been, and remains, a poet who had a unique power to capture in language the foibles and strengths, the folly and wisdom, and the rich variety of perspectives that make us human.  Though his the language in which he wrote (Middle English) requires an initial stretch for modern readers, it is quickly mastered and well worth the effort, since Chaucer was also the first poet in English to use the language with such finesse and precision. We will read five of the most accomplished of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and I will work to explain his unusual and innovative techniques for bringing the fourteenth-century England to life in language. Course Schedule: May 26             The General Prologue to The Canterbury Tales June 2              The Miller’s Prologue and Tale            June 9              The Pardoner’s Prologue and Tale June 16             The Wife of Bath’s Prologue and Tale June 23            The Nun’s Priest’s Tale and [the Close of The Canterbury Tales]                           The Introduction to the Parson’s Tale and Chaucer’s Retraction   All texts are available in Middle English with a Modern English translation on the Harvard Chaucer website:   https://chaucer.fas.harvard.edu/pages/text-and-translations Texts are also available in Middle English (with Modern English glosses) in the following readily-available editions: The Canterbury Tales: Seventeen Tales and the General Prologue, 3rd ed., ed.

He has traced that emergence conceptually (in the intellectual contexts in which it developed), philologically (in the history of English) and, comparatively (as Latin learning produced a 'grammatical' English and its poetics). He is the author of From Literacy to Literature (Oxford University Press, 2016), Middle English Literature: A Cultural History (2008), The Grounds of English Literature (2004), and The Making of Chaucer's English: A Study of Words (1998).  He is general co-editor of Oxford Studies in Medieval Literature and Culture (a monograph series) and of the Oxford Chaucer (an edition in progress of all of Chaucer's writing). He has held a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and has received the William Riley Parker Prize from the MLA (2014). He came to Johns Hopkins in 2017 after teaching at NYU, Cambridge, Oxford and UCLA.  chaucer-five-canterbury-tales

PeabodyConservatory HopkinsatHome May 28, May 28, ThursdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home  May 28, 2020 - June 18, 2020 (4 weeks) Thursdays, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT  Each week will consist of a live lecture with discussion immediately afterwards. Course Description Are you frightened by the thought of unseen invaders in your living room? Do you suspect foreign agents or even your own family members of trying to poison you? Is the government lying to you? If you said yes to any of these questions then you may be ready to return to the theater of yesteryear: Radio, The Theater of the Mind. Here drama is performed on the stage of your imagination. Voices become characters and sound effects props. Like bats flying blind, with radio we create set designs in our own minds through such simple means as reverb and echo. A gasp or a held breath can thrill or tickle us as much as the special effects Hollywood now spends millions on. In this course we will investigate how radio classics like the “War of the Worlds” and “The Jack Benny Program” used mere sound and even more meagre silence to spread both panic and laughter. We will consider how the Golden Age of Radio’s favorite genres and much-beloved shows were shaped by society, technology, and politics: the fear of big government, greater equality for women, the aftermath of one shadowed by the threat of another World War, as well as the invention of radio itself and the spread of other technologies designed to bring the world right into your living room. Syllabus  Week 1: Orson Welles’ “The War of the Worlds” Realism in radio How dead air means death on the air Fear of invasion Week 2: Arch Oboler’s “Johnny Got His Gun” Radio as a way of reaching out Sound as symbol Speaking from beyond the grave Week 3: Lucille Fletcher, “Sorry, Wrong Number” Disembodied voices Women as monsters Technology is making robots of us all Week 4: Jack Benny in “The Jack Benny Program” Stereotypes and recurring characters How silence leaves room for laughter The lavender gentleman goes “swish” Hyperlinks lead to radio shows for each week, if students would like to listen before each class.  Course Instructor Associate Professor Daniel H. Foster chairs the Liberal Arts Department at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. A comparatist with a particular interest in the intersection of high and low, old and new music, literature, and drama, Foster teaches and publishes on such subjects as opera and blackface, Greek lyric and Welsh song, new media and Old Time Radio. He authored Wagner’s Ring Cycle and the Greeks (Cambridge 2010) and is currently at work on From Bards to Blackface, or How the Minstrel Changed His Tune. His articles have been published in both academic and crossover journals ranging from The Journal of American Drama and Theatre to Smithsonian Magazine, Times Higher Education, and The Paris Review.radio-the-theater-of-the-mind

KriegerSchoolofArtsSciences HopkinsatHome VirtualJune 02, June 2, TuesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home Join Jeffrey Brooks as he introduces you to The Firebird and the Fox: Russian Culture under Tsars and Bolsheviks. During his talk, Dr. Brooks will emphasize three insights readers might take away from the book. The first is that the century roughly between 1850 and 1950 in Russia was uniquely dynamic in ways that shaped the culture. Change was at once political, economic, social, and technological, and all dimensions had cultural ramifications. A second and related insight is that the direction of influence was two way. Not only did common people and popular traditions color the great works of high literature and art—the works of high culture influenced popular and commercial works. Lastly, the formation of a uniquely Russian mix of creators and consumers, which arose as early as the 1860s.  He has talked to firebirds, foxes, and fools endlessly over the past ten years and shares his insights with Hopkins at Home!   I study and teach the political and cultural history of modern Russia, the history of the Soviet-American Cold War, and the great works of Russian and Soviet culture in their contemporary context. My The Firebird and the Fox: Russian Culture under Tsars and Bolsheviks (Cambridge University Press, 2019) showcases the genius of Russian literature, art, music, and dance over a century of turmoil within the dynamic cultural ecosystem that shaped it. The Firebird and the Fox explores the shared traditions, mutual influences, and enduring themes that recur in these art forms from 1850-1950. The book uses two emblematic characters from Russian culture—the firebird, symbol of the transcendent power of art in defiance of circumstance and the efforts of censors to contain creativity; and the fox, usually female and representing wit, cleverness and the agency of artists and everyone who triumphs over adversity—to explore how Russian cultural life changed over the period. High culture drew on folk and popular genres, then in turn influences an expanding commercial culture.  /event/HAHFirebird

NitzeSchoolofAdvancedInternationalStudies HopkinsatHome VirtualJune 09, June 9, TuesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home Nuclear weapons have long played a central but often unappreciated role in American grand strategy. In spite of the unimaginable consequences of their use in war, we know far less about how the bomb shapes U.S. national security and world politics than we should. Both our leading theories and histories have failed to fully explain important choices American leaders have made about the bomb over the past eight decades. This is less a failing of scholarship and more a reflection of the steep methodological, linguistic, and normative barriers to understanding nuclear strategy and statecraft. This challenge will only deepen, as new geopolitical and technological forces return the critical question of the purpose and consequences of nuclear weapons to the heart of the debate about the future of America’s grand strategy.  This lecture seeks to disturb this complacency about the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. grand strategy to explore important questions: What is the rationale for these weapons, and how do they advance America’s interests in the world?   Francis J. Gavin is the Giovanni Agnelli Distinguished Professor and the inaugural director of the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at SAIS-Johns Hopkins University. In 2013, Gavin was appointed the first Frank Stanton Chair in Nuclear Security Policy Studies and Professor of Political Science at MIT.  Before joining MIT, he was the Tom Slick Professor of International Affairs and the Director of the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law at the University of Texas.  He directs the Nuclear Studies Research Initiative and, with James Steinberg, the International Policy Scholars Consortium and Network.  From 2005 until 2010, he directed the American Assembly’s multiyear, national initiative, the Next Generation Project: U.S. Global Policy and the Future of International Institutions.  Gavin is the Chairman of the Board of Editors of the Texas National Security Review, a Non-Resident Senior Advisor at the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, an affiliate of MIT’s Security Studies Program, a senior fellow of the Clements Center for National Security, a distinguished scholar at the Robert S. Strauss Center, a senior advisor to the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project at the Woodrow Wilson Center, and a life-member of the Council on Foreign Relations.  He received a PhD and MA in history from the University of Pennsylvania, an MS in modern European history from Oxford University, and a BA in political science from the University of Chicago. His writings include Gold, Dollars, and Power: The Politics of International Monetary Relations, 1958-1971 and Nuclear Statecraft: History and Strategy in America’s Atomic Age.  His latest book, Nuclear Weapons and American Grand Strategy, was published by Brookings Institution Press in January 2020./event/hahfrankgavin3

KriegerSchoolofArtsSciences HopkinsatHome VirtualJune 16, June 16, TuesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home How do we assign responsibility or blame for a pandemic? Who is deserving or undeserving of government assistance during a public health crisis? Who do we trust to provide us with information about the risks associated with coronavirus? There is no single ‘right’ answer to these questions. Instead, it is through the political process that we assign responsibility, decide who is deserving, or who we trust. This lecture will explore several ways the work of Political Science addresses these questions in ways that can provide insight into the current Covid-19 crisis and the struggle over a government response.   Adam Sheingate is a Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University. Sheingate teaches courses on American politics and institutions at the graduate and undergraduate level, including a popular seminar on the politics of food. Prior to joining the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2000, Sheingate was a Prize Research Fellow in Politics at Nuffield College, Oxford. He is also a past-recipient of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Scholar Award in Health Policy Research at the University of California-Berkeley, and he served as the Mary Ball Washington Professor in American History at University College Dublin.
