ArtsEntertainmentMediaEntrepreneurship SheridanLibraries Virtual December 05, December 5, MondaySponsored by the Sheridan Libraries & University Museums, the Friends of the Johns Hopkins University Libraries, and the Office of Alumni Relations Lifelong Learning, Arts and Entertainment Industry Networks. Join Curatorial Postdoctoral Fellow Kelsey Champagne (A&S '15) for a virtual introduction to the exhibition Women of the Book: The Spiritual Lives of Early Modern Women, 1450–1800 on view in the George Peabody Library Exhibit Gallery through January 31st. Though the voices of women were largely absent from traditional historical sources, the Women of the Book Collection turns that problem on its head through its focus on extremely rare or unique sources of evidence of the institution of female monasticism—the world of nuns and convents dedicated to enlivening, sharing, and preserving the spiritual, intellectual, and interior lives of women for the wider world, in manuscript and in print. This exhibition of treasures from the collection paints the world of these holy women in living color—from psycho-spiritual autobiographers, bilocating nuns, rockstar status saints, ecstatic mystics, and female healers, to the hidden careers of women printers and engravers and miracle makers. Tour the exhibition with Curators Kelsey Champagne and Earle Havens on Wednesday, December 7th at 10AM at the Peabody Library, 17 E. Mount Vernon Place, Baltimore, Maryland 21201. Space is limited. Email libraryfriends@jhu.edu to reserve your spot for the in-person tour - include how many in your party.   To learn more about the Sheridan Libraries and how to join the Friends of the Johns Hopkins University Libraries, visit these websites: https://www.library.jhu.edu  https://www.library.jhu.edu/give/friends-of-the-libraries/ Disclaimer: The perspectives and opinions expressed by the speaker(s) during this program are those of the speaker(s) and not, necessarily, those of Johns Hopkins University and the scheduling of any speaker at an alumni event or program does not constitute the University’s endorsement of the speaker’s perspectives and opinions.

Finance December 15, December 15, ThursdaySponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations Lifelong Learning Join former Treasury officials, Howard B. Adler, A&S '72 and Alex J. Pollock for a webinar presentation of their book Surprised Again! –The COVID Crisis and the New Market Bubble. Howard and Alex will discuss the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and its aftermath on the economy with a special focus on Chapter 6 (Cryptocurrencies: An Assault on Central Banks or Their New Triumph?) and Chapter 12 (Central Banking to the Max). An opportunity for Q&A will follow the presentation. For more information about the book, visit Pauldry Books, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Target, Walmart, and other book sellers. A zoom link will be sent to all registrants prior to the webinar.   About this Book About every ten years, we are surprised by a financial crisis. In 2020, we were Surprised Again! by the financial panic of the spring triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic. Not one of the 30 official systemic risk studies developed in 2019 had even hinted at this financial crisis as a possibility, or at the frightening economic contraction which resulted from the political responses to control the virus. In response came the unprecedented government fiscal and monetary expansions and bailouts. Later 2020 brought a second big surprise: the appearance of an amazing boom in asset prices, including stocks, houses, and cryptocurrencies. Alex J. Pollock and Howard B. Adler lived through this historic instability while serving as senior officials of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Their book lays out the many elements of the panic and its aftermath, from the massive elastic currency operations which rode to the rescue by financing the bust with unprecedented government debt, to the consequent asset price boom, which included a renewed bubble in house prices financed by government guarantees. It considers key leveraged sectors such as commercial real estate, student loans, pension funds, banks, and the government itself. It reflects on how to understand these events both in retrospect and prospect.

Region January 22, January 22, SundaySponsored by Hopkins Miami/Palm Beach After her triumphant NWS debut last season, Gemma New (Peabody '11) makes her highly anticipated return in a blockbuster program featuring cellist Alisa Weilerstein. From the staggering genius of Russia’s most famous Romantic comes a symphony charged with raw power and gorgeous melodies. With the foreboding opening theme of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony, listeners are launched into a four-movement exploration of fate. Technically demanding with an abundance of lyricism, Samuel Barber’s Concerto finds its match in Alisa Weilerstein with her “ferociousness of artistic spirit” (New York Classical Review). Umoja—the Swahili word for unity—is Valerie Coleman’s anthem for our world today. Alumni and friends will enjoy the performance from Terrace 3.

Odyssey Virtual January 27, January 27, FridayBrought to you by Odyssey Jan 27, 2023 (1 session) Friday, 6PM- 8PM   Course Description: This is an evening lecture to highlight the debate centered around the precise value of the expansion rate of the Universe. This controversy is known as Hubble Tension. The fundamental features of the Universe, such as its age and observable size are characterized by an important parameter known as Hubble parameter, H0. In order to understand the past and future evolution of the universe, it is very important to know an accurate value of this parameter. Historically, this value has been measured by observing distant galaxies and calculating how quickly they are receding from observers. Collecting a large amount of such data from Hubble telescope can yield an accurate estimate for H0. Alternatively, scientists can extract the value of Hubble parameter from the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) data. The CMB is the very first light in the early universe produced around 300,000 years after the Big Bang. At that time the universe was cool enough for matter to form, and for light to propagate freely through the universe. CMB data from Planck spacecraft can be used to determine the value of Hubble parameter in the early universe, and then infer the present value of the parameter using Cold Dark Matter Model. Hubble Tension arises because two values of the Hubble parameter obtained by the above two different methods do not coincide. There is a 9% discrepancy between these two values, The Cepheid-Supernovae Distance ladder measures a value (H0= 73.5±1.4 km/s/MPc) in the present-day universe on galaxy receding, and a value (H0= 67.4±0.5 km/s/MPc) inferred from the early Universe using the CMB Planck data, it is not clear if this discrepancy in values arises due to an inaccurate measurements or if there is a fundamental issue in the model, demanding for new physics to be incorporated in the model. The present talk will discuss various ideas proposed to resolve Hubble Tension.   Johns Hopkins Tuition Remission Policies  Current and retired full-time Johns Hopkins faculty and staff, as well as their spouses or domestic partners, are eligible for tuition remission.

Odyssey Virtual February 07, February 7, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey  Feb. 7, 2023 - March 7, 2023 (5 sessions) Tuesdays, 6:30pm-8:30pm   Course Description:  An alternative to a writing workshop where participants critique each other’s writing, this course is a practicum focusing on sentence-level improvement. Using a method the co-instructors developed called “the sentence-composing approach,” participants practice sentence strategies used by authors ranging from J. R. R. Tolkien to J. K. Rowling. In building better sentences, participants learn to do what successful authors do, and will leave each session with sentence-building tools applicable to almost any kind of writing--academic, business, literary, or personal.     Johns Hopkins Tuition Remission Policies Current and retired full-time Johns Hopkins faculty and staff, as well as their spouses or domestic partners, are eligible for tuition remission.
