ArtsEntertainmentAthleticsMedia IndustriesandProfessions February 10, February 10, FridayJoin alumni Katherine “Kitty” Harvey, SAIS, ‘11 for a discussion of her investigative and thought provoking book A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: The Saudi Struggle for Iraq (Oxford University Press, 2022) describing how Saudi efforts to undermine Iranian influence paradoxically pushed Iraq into the Islamic Republic’s arms. This book talk and Q&A will be moderated by fellow alum, Bill Kirst, A&S ‘00, Change & Enablement Leader @ Microsoft, Storyteller, and Podcast Host of "Coffee & Change." "A major contribution to the literature regarding Saudi Arabia’s relations with Iraq in the period following the 2003 U.S. invasion. Deploying multiple tools of social science, Harvey meticulously explores the mindset of Saudi King Abdullah toward Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki." — Robert W. Jordan, former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia To purchase Harvey's book or for more information, visit Hurst Publishing, Amazon, or other book sellers. A zoom link will be sent to all registrants prior to the webinar. About this Book In recent years, the geopolitical rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran has dominated the headlines. Many have charted the polarization between a Saudi-led Sunni camp and an Iranian-led Shia one, assuming that a predominantly Shia state like Iraq would automatically ally with Iran. In this compelling account, Katherine Harvey tells a different story: Iraq’s alignment with Iran was not a foregone conclusion. Rather, Saudi efforts to undermine Iran have paradoxically empowered it. Harvey investigates why the Saudis refused to engage with Iraq’s post-2003 Shia-led government, despite continual outreach by Iraq’s new leaders and considerable pressure from the United States. She finds that certain deeply ingrained assumptions predisposed Saudi leaders to see a Shia-led Iraq as naturally beholden to Iran: the view that Iran is inherently expansionist, and the belief that Arab Shia tend to be loyal to it. This outlook was simplistic, even downright inaccurate; and, in refusing to engage, the Saudis created a self-fulfilling prophecy. As Harvey demonstrates, members of Iraq’s new government initially sought to establish a positive relationship with Saudi Arabia, and to pursue a course independent from Iran. But, isolated and rejected by Saudi King Abdullah, Iraq ultimately had nowhere else to turn. ______________________________________ 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.alumni-author-book-talk-katherin

SchoolofMedicine February 13, February 13, MondaySponsored by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Office of Alumni Relations You are worthy of your wellness. Many of us know that our mental health is important, but it’s hard. It’s hard to take time for our mental health with so many constant demands, and even when we do, it can be hard to have guilt-free self-care. In this workshop, we’ll explore ways to journal to proactively support our mental health in our daily lives, even with all our demands. Zenit founder Alina Liao will guide us in some rounds of journaling and sharing where you’ll journal to process your thoughts and feelings, unpack and release stress, set healthy boundaries, restore your energy, and practice self-love. We’ll share reflections in small groups to connect authentically. This will be an affirming, gentle space to slow down, get to know your needs more intimately, and build community. Our aim is that you walk away feeling some ease and relief and equipped with tools and inspiration for supporting your mental health daily. This program will be presented on Zoom. A Zoom link will be shared in advance of the program.

Although the technique has been around for decades, it is rarely seen in a book conservation lab. The team in our Department of Conservation and Preservation has been experimenting with and using this fabrication method for the last few years. This presentation will briefly describe what ‘3D Printing’ is, the hardware and workflow required, and what its strengths, weaknesses, and potential are. Finally, a series of 3D printed objects designed and produced in our lab will be presented: from unobtrusive mounts for artifacts in the current Women of the Book exhibit at the George Peabody Library to prototypes of folding book cradles for special collection reading rooms. 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/   A zoom link will be sent to all registrants ahead of the webinar.lunch-with-the-libraries-3d-prin

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.

ArtsEntertainmentAthleticsMedia MedicineHealthcareServices IndustriesandProfessions February 23, February 23, ThursdayBook Talk Animal Book of Secrets David Agus Alumni Author Redonda Miller Join us for an engaging conversation and Q&A with New York Times bestselling author, visionary physician and biomedical researcher Dr. David B. Agus and Dr. Redonda Miller, JHUSOM '92, BUS '04, President of Johns Hopkins Hospital as they explore the ways that we can harness the wonders of the animal kingdom in our own, very human lives. The Book of Animal Secrets is an ingenious guide to what our fellow animals can teach us about living longer, healthier, happier lives.  Mother nature has a lot to teach us, if only we open our eyes. Pigeons and dolphins offer creative strategies for preserving our memories and warding off dementia, while squirrels and pigs harbor secrets for managing chronic pain. Rhinoceroses demonstrate the subtle power of our environments—and how to exercise better—while chimps have surprising parenting tips, not to mention great diet advice. Studying elephants has unlocked insights into preventing cancer, and we can look to giraffes for solutions to cardiovascular issues. Ants reveal the unusual benefits of collaboration and altruism, dogs are masterful mentors in living the good life, prairie voles hold clues to connection, and hitchhikers from our evolutionary past may bring us to the edge of immortality. NOTE: This event is a fully virtual experience. You can purchase "The Book of Animal Secrets" at Amazon and other major retailers.  Reviews “This riveting ride through the animal kingdom will entertain you and provide unique insights for your health. Dr. David Agus brilliantly describes the lessons all around us, if we just take the time to pay attention: from rhinos who may well teach us how to exercise to pigeons who can help preserve our memory.” —Sanjay Gupta, MD, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent and New York Times bestselling author of Keep Sharp “The book gives us something we can all be optimistic about—the remarkable extent to which our well-being is in our hands, and how even the smallest lifestyle changes can have a huge impact on our health and quality of life.” —Arianna Huffington, CEO of Thrive Global 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.the-book-of-animal-secrets-inter

Odyssey Virtual March 22, March 22, WednesdayGeorge ScheperBrought to you by Odyssey  March 22, 2023 - April 26, 2023 (6 sessions) Wednesdays, 6:30PM - 8:30PM   Course Description: We begin with a look at NYC culture in the Progressive era, the 'Teens and the 20's, with a focus on the personalities of bohemian Greenwich Village, the Ashcan School of painters, the 1913 Armory Show, and the advent of Modernism and the evolution of NYC's early skyscrapers. We look at F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age essays and the "strange bedfellows" of Fifth Avenue socialites and collectors and hard-core radical leftist intellectuals and labor leaders. We then move uptown for a look at the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920's and 30's -- when Harlem really was in vogue. After the Crash of '29 and during the "lean years" of the 1930's, the arts turned toward social realism, supported by the politics of Mayor LaGuardia and FDR's New Deal. We explore three iconic projects of the era: the creation of Rockefeller Center; Robert Moses' early parkway projects; and the 1939 World's Fair, a "World of Tomorrow" ironically at odds with the true urban character of NYC. Our course moves on to an examination of two contrasting visions of the nature of the city: that of the Master Builder and Power Broker, Robert Moses, and the contrasting vision of Jane Jacobs, whose vision of urban neighborhood life countered the "tower in the park" vision of the professional urban planners. We conclude with an overview of NYC as "The Unfinished City."   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 March 27, March 27, MondayPaul KettlBrought to you by Odyssey  March 27, 2023 (1 session) Monday, 6:00 -7:30PM ET   Course Description: To begin, I will discuss that politics is an art based on analyzing and building on the feelings of voters.  Political arguments are not rational.   Policies are simply the backdrop of the stage.  Feelings are the political play.  Carl Jung described the "collective unconscious" as fears passed down to us from our collective experiences.  The current "anti" political climate calls on us to draw on these fears.  I will explore those feelings and how they can be manipulated. Next, the personal characteristics of the ideal political candidate will be presented.  As in psychiatry, recognizing feelings, interpreting them, and then expressing them back in an understandable way is key.  The use of "personal" experiences and feelings described by others "on the campaign trail" is an effective tool. Examples of how political messages or answers to political questions are crafted will be presented in the "psychiatry of politics".  Finally, suggestions on how to manage the media in marketing your own programs will be explored.   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.

Currently, the theory is at the center of research into quantum gravity and into the long sought-after dream of a mathematical theory of the structure of matter and energy. The theory is, however, controversial and is at the center of a philosophical debate on the very nature of science itself, as the theory seems to be beyond our ability to empirically confirm its predictions. This class will introduce students to string theory and to the philosophical discussions and debates surrounding it that are changing the nature of modern physics. No previous knowledge of the theory or mathematics is necessary.   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.
