April 02, April 2, ThursdayAbout the Series: Johns Hopkins University is a vibrant community of intellectual exchange committed to its mission of sharing knowledge with the world. This is true no matter if our physical campus is open or closed. Through the new Looking Forward @ Hopkins: Remote Speaker Series, JHU’s Gilman Scholars are engaging the scholarly community by sharing cutting-edge scholarship during the COVID-19 shutdown. The series will build virtual intellectual and social bridges to fill gaps left during this time of physical social distancing, and excite faculty, students, and staff to bring new ideas back to campus with them when our campuses re-open. Each week, one of the university’s Gilman Scholars will give a talk presenting their research, followed by time for questions. The Gilman Scholars comprise faculty members from a wide range of research areas who have been honored with this distinction—named for Daniel Coit Gilman, Johns Hopkins’ first president—for their outstanding contributions to scholarship, research, teaching, and service. The series is organized by Andy Feinberg. He also will present “Epigenetics and the Adaptive Genome in a Changing Environment,” the first talk in the series, on April 2, 2020, at noon. “I’ve been awed by the scholarship of my colleagues in this group,” says Feinberg. “They talk about their own research with excitement and passion. I thought it might be fun for them to share their ideas with the community, particularly to help us think about some of the exciting scholarship we’ll be able to pursue when we come back to campus.” More info here: https://research.jhu.edu/researchcommunication/lookingforward/ Epigenetics and the Adaptive Genome in a Changing Environment Andy Feinberg April 2 at Noon Professor Feinberg is the Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Epigenetics. He is the director of the Center for Epigenetics and has appointments in the departments of Medicine, Oncology, Molecular Biology & Genetics, and Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences in the School of Medicine; in the departments of Mental Health and Biostatistics in the Bloomberg School of Public Health; and in the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Whiting School of Engineering. Professor Feinberg is considered to be a founder of the field of cancer epigenetics. He contributes his expertise in human epigenetics to cutting-edge research in cancer and applies these concepts to understand the role of epigenetics in all aspects of human disease. Feinberg was the first to demonstrate how genetics, epigenetics, and the environment interact to cause disease, and pioneered the field of epigenomics, developing many of the experimental and statistical tools to study epigenetics at a genome-scale level. Feinberg’s research is now focused on studying the epigenetic basis of normal development and disease, including cancer, aging, and neuropsychiatric illness. He is one of 10 principal investigators on NASA’s Twins Study analyzing the epigenetic effects of spaceflight on the Kelly identical twins, comparing samples from twin astronauts Mark and Scott Kelly during Scott’s year in space.

KriegerSchoolofArtsSciences VirtualApril 03, April 3, FridayThe coronavirus outbreak has exposed how intricately interdependent we all are, and also the vulnerabilities baked into our societal and economic structures. As we address the crisis, we must also be mindful of the opportunity to create a different, safer future. How can we imagine a new economy that puts people, not profits, at the center and works to promote human flourishing? As communities come together to find empathetic and ethical responses to COVID-19, might we come out of this crisis closer to that vision? The panel will be moderated by Hahrie Han, a professor of political science and director of the SNF Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University. Guests: Angus Burgin is an associate professor of history at Johns Hopkins University, where he writes and teaches on the intellectual history of political economy since the late 19th century. He is author of The Great Persuasion: Reinventing Free Markets since the Depression (2012), co-executive editor of the book series Intellectual History of the Modern Age, and co-editor of the journal Modern Intellectual History.   Margaret Levi is the Sara Miller McCune Director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences and professor of political science at Stanford University. She is author of Of Rule and Revenue (1988) and Consent, Dissent, and Patriotism (1997) and co-author of Analytic Narratives (1998), Cooperation without Trust? (2005); In the Interest of Others (2013), and Labor Standards in International Supply Chain (2016). She is general coeditor of the Annual Review of Political Science and an editor of Cambridge Studies in Comparative Politics.   Anne-Marie Slaughter is the CEO of New America and the Bert G. Kerstetter ’66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University. Previously, she served as the director of policy planning for the U.S. Department of State. She is author of several books, including The Chessboard and the Web: Strategies of Connection in a Networked World (2017), Unfinished Business: Women Men Work Family (2016), and The Idea that Is America: Keeping Faith with Our Values in a Dangerous World (2007).   About SNF Agora Conversations: The Politics and Policy of COVID-19 As coronavirus spreads across the country and around the globe, we are facing a crisis not just in healthcare, but also in how we live, work, learn, engage, and come together to govern ourselves as citizens and in communities. How do the politics of the pandemic shape the way individual, communities, and institutions respond? Likewise, how does institutional and governmental response to the pandemic shape people’s political views and behaviors? Do people trust what their governments are telling them? Why are some countries controlling the spread of the virus better than others? In the U.S., how will this affect the 2020 elections? And how do we practice social distancing and also protect and promote civic engagement and inclusive discourse? SNF Agora Institute will host a series of webcast conversations, with experts from Johns Hopkins University and beyond, that will explore the political and policy implications of COVID-19./event/SNFAgoraMoralEcon432020

April 03, April 3, FridaySponsored by Lifelong Learning Do you often find yourself stretched too thin? Do you simultaneously feel overworked and underutilized? Are you frequently busy but not productive? Do you feel like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people’s agendas? If you answered yes to any of these, then practicing Essentialism is your way out. The Way of the Essentialist isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy, or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter. By forcing us to apply a more selective criteria for what is Essential, the disciplined pursuit of less empowers us to reclaim control of our own choices about where to spend our precious time and energy—instead of giving others the implicit permission to choose for us.  Our presenter, Greg McKeown, is the father of the Essentialism philosophy and the author of the New York Times bestseller of the same name. In this webinar, you'll learn the value proposition for Essentialism and three practices to apply in your life. Namely, Explore what is essential, Eliminate the nonessentials and Execute what matters most as effortlessly as possible. You'll leave with a 21-Day Challenge with specific steps to put Essentialism into practice immediately and have the chance to ask questions.  About the Speaker: Greg McKeown is the CEO of McKeown Inc. Clients include Adobe, Apple, Google, Facebook, Pixar, Salesforce.com, Symantec, Twitter, VMware and Yahoo!. His writing has appeared or been covered by The New York Times, Fast Company, Fortune, HuffPost, Politico, and Inc. Magazine. He is among the most popular bloggers for the Harvard Business Review and LinkedIn’s Influencers group: averaging a million views a month. McKeown has been interviewed on numerous television and radio shows including NPR, NBC, FOX, and as a regular guest on The Steve Harvey Show. Entrepreneur voted his interview at Stanford University the #1 Must-See Video on Business, Creativity and Success.
