But China's foreign policy initiatives, even the vaunted "Belt and Road," will be shaped and redefined as they confront the ground realities of local and regional politics outside China.  In China's Western Horizon, Daniel S. Markey, a scholar of international relations and former member of the U.S. State Department's policy planning staff, previews how China's efforts are likely to play out across the swath of Eurasia that includes South Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle East. Over the next 4 months, Professor Markey, and guest speakers, will engage you in a deep discussion related to these issues. His recent book will be used as a framework, but you will connect topics from the book with articles, videos, online resources, and discussion with other Hopkins faculty and members of this virtual book club. During the zoom-based seminars, you’ll be encouraged to share your perspectives, drawing from your own experience and reading.  Meeting Schedule via Zoom Wednesday, September 2 at 5 PM – South Asia, with guest speaker Professor Joshua White Wednesday, September 30 at 5 PM – Central Asia, with guest speaker Carla Freeman Wednesday, October 21 at 5 PM – Middle East Wednesday, November 18 at 5 PM – Conclusion Expectations for the Book Club To get the most out of this experience, each member of the book club will be expected to read a chapter from China’s Western Horizon in preparation for each of the live zoom discussion groups, which will be facilitated by Dr. Markey and a Ph.D. student from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Hasta Colman. Club members will also be encouraged to participate in online discussions between the live zoom sessions using a web-based platform built for the club. Hopkins at Home will provide excerpts from Dr. Markey's book, and full copies are readily available on Amazon.com, your local library, or the Johns Hopkins Library (for current Hopkins students, alumni, faculty, or staff) Book Link: https://www.amazon.com/Chinas-Western-Horizon-Beijing-Geopolitics/dp/0190680199 Daniel Markey (A&S, '95) is a senior research professor at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual October 29, October 29, ThursdayPreventing the Next Pandemic The globalized world of the new millennium has become highly vulnerable to epidemics of infectious diseases. It is a vulnerability that has been underscored by several recent pandemics, including Covid-19. Driven by global demographic and societal trends, these events have become more frequent, larger, and - depending on the pathogen - more deadly. Unfortunately, the 'out of sight, out of mind' mentality often results in lessons being forgotten during interepidemic periods. Epidemics will continue to wreak havoc on human and economic health unless we develop more effective and sustainable early warning surveillance, prevention and control programs. Join Dr. Duane Gubler as he shares lessons learned and suggestions for mitigating the impact of future pandemics.   Dr Duane J Gubler, ScD, FAAAS, FIDSA, FASTMH, is Emeritus Professor and founding director, Signature Research Program in Emerging Infectious Diseases at the Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore. He is Adjunct Professor in his alma mater, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Duke University School of Medicine and Duke Global Health Institute. He has spent his entire career working on tropical infectious diseases with an emphasis on dengue, Aedes-transmitted and other vector-borne diseases. He worked for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for 25 years and has extensive field experience in Asia, the Pacific, tropical America and Africa, and has published extensively on all aspects of dengue and other vector-borne infectious diseases, with over 350 publications and 2 books to his credit.

ArtsEntertainmentMediaEntrepreneurship Affinity October 30, October 30, FridaySponsored by the Sheridan Libraries & University Museums, the Friends of the Johns Hopkins University Libraries, and the Arts, Entertainment, Media, and Entrepreneurship Affinity Archival materials provide the primary sources for history—the foundation for the stories we tell about the past and its implications for the present. But many individuals and communities have not traditionally been well represented in archival collections: women, immigrants, poor people, people of color, and sexual and gender minorities, for example, have often been left out or minimally represented. If we want better, more complete histories that embrace the full range of human experience, we need to address these absences and distortions. Collections of ephemera—materials created to serve a time-limited purpose, which are often, therefore, cheap and disposable—offer one route to a more just archive. Fliers, brochures, pamphlets, and postcards, for example, help make visible the experiences and interests of those whose lives went unrecorded or were twisted in more permanent accounts. Technological solutions for making these kinds of materials more discoverable in libraries and archives are also on the rise—which means, they are now more available to all kinds of audiences and researchers. In this presentation, Dr. Gabrielle Dean, William Kurrelmeyer Curator of Rare Books & Manuscripts in the Sheridan Libraries, will showcase several pieces of ephemera and ephemera collections that help us see not only what has been left out of history, but also, what we can never fully recover. This program will be presented on Zoom. A Zoom link will be shared with all registrants in advance of the program. MEET OUR SPEAKER Gabrielle Dean, William Kurrelmeyer Curator of Rare Books & Manuscripts, JHU Sheridan Libraries Dr. Gabrielle Dean is the curator for 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century materials in the Department of Special Collections, and a lecturer in the Program for Museums and Society at the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences. She is also the associate editor of Archive Journal. Her research focuses on the exchanges between textual and visual culture during the industrial era of print, and the history of the archival imagination. Her work has appeared in Digital Humanities Quarterly, Modernism/modernity, The Journal of Modern Periodical Studies, Textual Cultures, and the Dickinson Electronic Archives, among others, and in the collections Primary Stein, edited by Janet Boyd and Sharon J. Kirsch, Emily Dickinson in Context, edited by Eliza Richards, and Past or Portal?: Teaching Undergraduates Using Special Collections and Archives, edited by Eleanor Mitchell, Peggy Seiden, and Suzy Taraba. She has curated exhibitions about H. L. Mencken, Stephen Crane, John Barth, Edgar Allan Poe, and, most recently, the Baltimore photographer John Clark Mayden.

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual November 06, November 6, FridayDisplacement, Faith, and Mental Health: Integration and Support for Arabic-speaking Refugees in Germany Mental health services are not always readily available to refugees, especially services in a native language with cultural competency. Berlin, Germany is home to thousands of Arabic-speaking refugees, many of whom are seeking mental health support. Diana Rayes, MHS will present the findings from her qualitative research study titled "Faith-based coping among Arabic-speaking refugees seeking mental health services in Berlin, Germany” conducted during her Fulbright research fellowship in Germany (2018-2019). The aims of the study were to explore the various cultural and religious forms of coping utilized by newly-arrived refugees to Germany and their potential impact on integration. This study was part of the broader Mental Health in Refugees and Asylum-Seekers (MEHIRA) project, a multi-site, randomized-control trial led by the Charité University of Medicine in Berlin which aimed to explore ways in which mental health services can be optimized for recently arrived refugees and asylum-seekers across Germany. Rayes will provide background on both research projects as well as share preliminary thoughts about how considerations of cultural and spiritual identities can inform broader research and policy impacting refugee and migrant communities. Diana Rayes, MHS ‘16 is a first year PhD Student in the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, where she is specializing in the impact of conflict and displacement on refugee and migrant mental health and integration in host country contexts. Diana is a recipient of the Fulbright research fellowship and is also a Nonresident Fellow at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy. She has been published in the British Medical Journal, PLOS Medicine, and The Lancet and is a steering committee member of the Syrian Public Health Network.  refugee-mental-health

PeabodyConservatory SNFAgoraInstitute HopkinsatHome November 07, November 7, SaturdayBrought to you by SNF Agora Institute and Peabody Institute on Hopkins at Home  Follow us on Twitter to join the conversation: @HopkinsatHome, #HopkinsatHome Join SNF Agora Institute and Peabody Institute to enjoy Scalia/Ginsburg, an American opera by composer-librettist Derrick Wang, which will be broadcast on Hopkins at Home. This comedy about friendship in a divided world was inspired by the words of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia. Directly following the broadcast, Professor Derrick Wang and Dean Fred Bronstein will host participants in an interactive discussion about the opera and its implications for our divided democracy. Details to join this discussion on Zoom will be provided in the confirmation email once you register.  To find out more about this opera, visit http://www.derrickwang.com/scalia-ginsburg.  Derrick Wang is a composer, dramatist, and scholar unlocking the power of music in other disciplines. At Peabody, he teaches interdisciplinary courses in music and law on the graduate and undergraduate levels for the Professional Studies department and the Business of Music minor. Wang’s work has drawn significant attention to opera in the national and international press — as the subject of a front-page article in The Wall Street Journal, a three-page illustrated feature in the Süddeutsche Zeitung (Germany’s largest national subscription daily newspaper), and articles and interviews in outlets including the ABA Journal, Associated Press, Bloomberg, Deutsche Presse-Agentur, Dziennik Gazeta Prawna (Poland), The Economist, Los Angeles Times, MSNBC, The New Republic, Opera Today, Der Standard (Austria), and The Washington Post. His work has received further coverage in The New York Times, AARP The Magazine, and the ABC television program Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?   Fred Bronstein – an accomplished pianist, dedicated music educator, and successful chief executive of American symphony orchestras – began his appointment as the first dean of the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University on June 1, 2014. He was renewed for a second five-year term beginning July 1, 2019. With his second term underway, and building on progress to date made through the Breakthrough Plan initiative, Dean Bronstein is engaging the Institute in a renewal process to take a fresh look at the Breakthrough Plan today, to assess the ongoing fit of initiatives in support of the Five Pillars, and to make refinements and revisions within the framework of the plan to position Peabody for the next five years. Ongoing throughout the 2019-20 academic year, this process is engaging faculty, staff, students, volunteers, and alumni in order to help shape the next incarnation of Peabody’s Breakthrough Plan 2024. As a performer, Bronstein toured for eight years and could be heard on New World Records as part of Aequalis, a chamber group he co-founded with a focus on new American music, innovative programming, and educational outreach.   scalia-ginsburg-an-american-oper

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual November 10, November 10, TuesdayA win-win: Reducing the spread of COVID-19 and getting students to school safely during the pandemic As schools reopen, we aim to protect students from COVID-19. However, the journey to school is often left out of the conversation. There are simple, cost-effective ways to keep students safe on their journeys, which also address the epidemic on wheels that existed far before the pandemic began. Road traffic injuries kill more 5-29 year olds than any other cause. Now is the time to accelerate measures that increase walking and cycling, which are conducive to physical distancing, and to decrease the use of polluting vehicles. From school buses to public transport, there are many ways to keep students safe from these dual threats during their journeys to school.  Join Natalie Draisin as she shares guidance from UNICEF and the Child Health Initiative (CHI) on safe and healthy journeys to school during the pandemic and beyond, and a corresponding open database from UNICEF, Save the Children, and CHI of global examples.   Natalie Draisin, MPH, MBA is the Director of the North American Office and the United Nations Representative for the FIA Foundation. Dedicated to ensuring safe and sustainable mobility as a policy priority, Natalie leads the Foundation’s activities across the Americas and advances evidence-based solutions around the world. Highlights of her global partnerships include founding Vision Zero for Youth with the National Center for Safe Routes to School, creating a Traffic Conflict Technique Toolkit with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and enabling the creation of the New Mobility Initiative at Johns Hopkins University.

Food, water, climate and extinction emergencies are unfolding before our eyes. 8 Billion Angels tells the truth about the conflict between the size of our global population and the sustainability of our planet.

HealthCare Affinity November 16, November 16, MondaySponsored by the Department of Neurology and Brain Sciences and the Healthcare Affinity Meet the dynamic, young faculty members of the Department of Neurology and Brain Sciences, including Drs. Ankur Butala, Michelle Johansen, and Michael Kornberg, as they share their research and discuss the need for support for young physician-scientists. The program will be presented on Zoom. A link will be shared with all registrants in advance of the program. MEET THE FACULTY MEMBER SPEAKERS Ankur Ajit Butala, MD Ankur Butala, MD is a Movement Disorders Neurologist and Neuropsychiatrist holding dual appointments in the Departments of Neurology, Psychiatry, and Behavioral Sciences. A graduate of the University of Massachusetts Dual Neurology-Psychiatry residency, Dr. Butala joined the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 2015 as a Clinical and Research Fellow of Movement Disorders. He has held a faculty appointment since 2018. Dr. Butala has expertise in managing Parkinsonian Disorders, Ataxias, and other neuropsychiatric conditions. He is, first and foremost, a clinician-researcher and hopes to optimize outcomes of treatment-refractory neuropsychiatric conditions. As a result, his most recent work focuses on developing functional circuit models of cognition and mood with non-invasive biosignals. He hopes to utilize these techniques later when investigating medicinal applications of cannabinoids and entheogens. Michelle Johansen, MD, PhD Dr. Michelle Johansen, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in the department of Neurology.  Her academic and scientific pursuits in the area of Cerebrovascular Neurology stem from a fervent desire to be an exceptional care provider and clinical researcher. Her research focus is how changes in the heart (cardiac structure and function) impact neurological outcomes, to include ischemic stroke etiology, subclinical infarcts, brain white matter disease, and vascular contributions to cognitive decline. Dr. Johansen was the first research chief resident while training at the University of Virginia where she realized her own passion for clinical research. Her father’s stroke in 2015, further solidified her resolve to push the bounds of scientific knowledge in this critical area.  Relying on her background in chemistry combined with her PhD in Clinical Investigation from the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Dr. Johansen has already established a relationship between cardiac echocardiogram markers and brain changes, such as stroke, in her own patients at Johns Hopkins. She has found similar predictors of brain health using cardiac measures in large epidemiologic cohort studies, such as the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities study or the GeneSTAR study. With recent funding from the American Heart Association and the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Johansen is now using advanced cardiac imaging methods and blood based biomarkers to diagnose the cause of patient’s strokes and determine the impact of cardiac changes on cognition over time. In this program, Dr. Michelle Johansen will summarize some of her most exciting findings, uncovering the link between what is seen in the heart and what is seen in the brain of patients, particularly with regard to accurately diagnosing the cause of a patients' stroke.  She will discuss what is currently known about the heart-brain connection, referencing the latest data, and will demonstrate what she is doing to provide answers to questions such as how do changes in cardiac structure and function impact a person’s cognition.  Michael D. Kornberg, MD, PhD Dr. Kornberg is Assistant Professor of Neurology and an Associate Director of the Neurology Residency Program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He completed a fellowship in neuroimmunology and specializes in the care of individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) and other autoimmune diseases of the nervous system. In addition to his clinical work, he runs a research program focused on better understanding the pathogenesis of MS and identifying therapeutic strategies to prevent neurodegeneration and promote remyelination in MS patients. Specifically, his lab studies the role of diet and metabolism in inflammation, as well the role of innate immune cells in determining the success or failure of repair processes in the brain. During this program, Dr. Kornberg will discuss his research focusing on identifying targets and developing treatments for multiple sclerosis, with implications for other autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases. He'll discuss two lines of research in his lab: 1) How metabolism and diet may impact inflammation and autoimmunity, and efforts to understand how they can be targeted to treat autoimmune diseases; and 2) Efforts to develop treatments that slow progression and promote myelin repair in progressive MS by targeting cells in the brain called "glia," and specifically work with a candidate drug called bryostatin-1.neurology-s-young-faculty-their-

ArtsEntertainmentMediaEntrepreneurship Affinity December 04, December 4, FridaySponsored by the Sheridan Libraries & University Museums, the Friends of the Johns Hopkins University Libraries, and the Arts, Entertainment, Media, and Entrepreneurship Affinity As information and “fake news” rocket through cyberspace, developments seem to burst on the scene, excite debate, and melt away in a haze of “information overload.” The general assumption is that our present-day fleeting information landscape is new. It is not! The invention of “ephemeral” information and the “news cycle” began many centuries ago with the advent of print. Our knowledge of that earlier history is imperfect and deeply fragmented, however, since so little of it has been physically preserved. In this illustrated presentation, Dr. Earle Havens, Nancy H. Hall Curator of Rare Books & Manuscripts in the Sheridan Libraries, will highlight how Hopkins has been a leader in the recovery and exploration of this nascent, if fragmentary, “ephemeral” information landscape. This program will be presented on Zoom. A Zoom link will be shared with all registrants in advance of the program. MEET OUR SPEAKER Earle Havens, Nancy H. Hall Curator of Rare Books & Manuscripts, The Sheridan Libraries Dr. Earle Havens is the Nancy H.

KriegerSchoolofArtsSciences VirtualDecember 09, December 9, Wednesday   Since the establishment of the Phyllis F. Albstein Fund for Brain Science in 2014, investments in the brain sciences at the Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences continues to generate revolutionary lines of inquiry into Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.   We are extremely grateful to the Albstein Family – and all Phyllis F. Albstein Fund donors – for partnering with the Krieger School to lead the way in this meaningful field of research. Last year, with their help, over $700,000 was raised for Alzheimer’s research at Johns Hopkins University. As a result, renowned Johns Hopkins scientists, undergraduate Albstein Scholars, and brilliant junior faculty continue to pursue novel and interdisciplinary research that push the boundaries of discovery to diagnose patients earlier, slow the disease progression, treat those afflicted, and relentlessly pursue a cure. Because of the avenues of research the Phyllis F. Albstein Fund makes possible, we have hope for a future that is free of Alzheimer’s disease. Thank you for supporting this meaningful endeavor and for the lives that your investment will ultimately, one day, save.    /event/albstein2020
