Odyssey Virtual October 04, October 4, MondayBrought to you by Odyssey October 4, 2021 - November 8, 2021 Mondays, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ET (9 course hours) In the last 4000 years scientists have toiled in their laboratories and observatories, at their desks and in the field to gradually elucidate the story of creation and evolution adding to its expanse and detail. Yet as marvelous a story of creation and evolution is, the chapters are replete with gaps and deep mystery; some perhaps impenetrable, given the limitations imposed upon us by physical law. It is within these uncharted waters beyond the shores of science that the ineffable glides. This course explores the unknown and perhaps unknowable chapters; with a focus on understanding the physical theories describing the structure of the cosmos identifying those areas not yet understood.     Suggested Readings The Fabric of the Cosmos – Brian Greene – An overview of modern physics and cosmology  Einstein – Walter Isaacson – A view of Einstein’s life, Special and General Relativity   Genius – James Gleick – The life and Science of Richard Feynman – Quantum Electrodynamics  The View from the Center of the Universe – Joel R. Primack and Nancy Ellen Abrams – An overview of Modern Physics and its Philosophical Implications  Einstein’s God- Krista Tippit – Conversations and Science and the Human Spirit  Man Is Not Alone – Abraham Joshua Heschel – Philosophy of Religion About the Instructor              Forrest Hall, PhD, worked for NASA for more than 35 years and the University of Maryland Baltimore County for 15 years. He has authored more than 80 scientific papers. He recently retired from the UMBC Physics Department but continues to teach astronomy and Earth Science at Baltimore's Maryland Institute College of Art. He lectures widely on the connections between science, spirituality, and ecology.

Odyssey Virtual October 05, October 5, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 5, 2021 - November 2, 2021  Tuesday, 6:30 PM ET (7.5 course hours) This course is an alternative to a writing workshop where participants critique each other’s writing: 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.   Session 1 10/05/21   Description: To learn a technique replicating the structure of a mentor sentence by a recognizable author.  Objectives: Participants will analyze sentences by recognizable authors to learn the sentence-composing tools used therein to build those sentences and to compose sentences with those same tools.  Session 2  10/12/21   Description: The identifier sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing that tool and its variations.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use the identifier tool in various places and lengths within their own sentences.  Session 3  10/19/21   Description: The describer sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing that tool and its variations.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use the describer tool in various places and lengths within their own sentences.  Session 4  10/26/21   Description: The elaborator sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing that tool and its variations.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use the elaborator tool in various places and lengths within their own sentences.  Session 5  11/02/21   Description: The combo sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing a mixture of sentence-composing tools.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use identifiers, describers, and elaborators in combination within their own sentences.   Supplemental Materials  All materials are created by the Killgallons, provided during each session, then emailed to participants to use and keep. About the Instructors             The co-instructors are widely recognized as innovators in teaching writing through sentence-level improvement. As co-authors, they have written many textbooks used by teachers within and beyond the United States, all featuring their sentence-composing approach.  Don Killgallon, M.A. (University of Maryland), M.L.A. and M.Ed. (Johns Hopkins University), is a veteran English and writing teacher, and the originator of the sentence- composing approach.  Jenny Killgallon, M.L.A. (Johns Hopkins University), taught secondary English in public and private schools and was a writing improvement specialist for the Maryland State Department of Education and for the English Division of Baltimore County Public Schools.  Tuition Remission and Refund Policies Full-time JHU faculty/staff, their spouses or same-sex domestic partners, JHU retirees and their spouses or same-sex domestic partners are eligible for tuition remission. The tuition remission form is required.

Odyssey Virtual October 06, October 6, WednesdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 6, 2021 - November 10, 2021 Wednesdays, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ET (9 course hours) Current US democracy has been fractured by polarization and tribalism. The new normal of today’s politics is being influenced by the mass and immediate communications of the digital age. In this course, we will examine the roles of polarization & denialism in current US politics. We ask, “How strong are the forces of reason, culture and history to influence politics?” Finally, we explore influences as they shape cultural and historical changes while examining and debating the ways in which the personal and collective realization of civic virtues and the serious, thoughtful and committed pursuit of the common good --that will benefit all members of society-- have the power to prevent the future destabilization of democracy. Plus the belief that the improvement of democracy will be our permanent task. This course emphasizes active participation, autonomy-promoting education, and reasonable discussion. Session 1 10/6 Introduction Objective: Understanding the main elements of US democracy. Session 2 10/13 Motivated Reasoning & Denialism Objective: Analyzing the psychology of motivated reasoning and emotional denial. Session 3 10/20 Politics and Economics of Polarization Objective: Examining the political and economic factors of displaced working people. Session 4 10/27 From Nov. 2020 election to Jan. 6 2021 Riot Objective: Discussion of the GOP attempts to delegitimize the results of the presidential election. Session 5 11/03 Weakness and Strengths of the US democracy Objective: Discussion of the realities and possibilities intrinsic to the US constitutional system. Session 6 11/10 The Future of New Civics Objective: Discussing the need for the virtues of citizenship Supplemental  Materials Suggested reading, It's Even Worse Than It Looks by Norman Ornstein & Thomas Man, 2016, 2nd Ed., Basic Books.

Odyssey Virtual October 07, October 7, ThursdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 7, 2021 - November 11, 2021  Thursday, 6:30 PM ET (9 course hours) This class will introduce students to the science of climate change through explorations of the archaeological remains of the great civilizations of the Americas. The rich archeological record left behind by the Olmec, the Maya, the Aztec and the Inca, have over the last few decades, given scholars great insights into how they used their environments and how in doing so, influenced the ecology of the Americas. The Maya in particular produced huge cities whose need for water and resources outpaced in many instances the ability of the environment to provide them. Students will explore the archaeological remains of these cultures from the early Americas through 3D models of objects, inscriptions and works of art and through readings aimed at building an understanding of the science of both past and present climate change. Syllabus Session 1: 10/7, Introduction to Climate Science and the Archaeology of the Americas Session 2: 10/14, Maya Civilization and the Paleoecology of the Ancient Americas Session 3: 10/21, Indigenous Perspectives on Environment and Climate amongst the ancient Maya, Nahua, and the Cahuilla. Session 4: 10/28, What can the archaeological record of the disappearance of classic Maya cities tells us about climate change Session 5: 11/4, Impact of climate change on the collapse of Lowland Maya Civilization Session 6: 11/11, How does the archaeological record of the effects of climate change influence how we think about it today. Supplemental Materials Students will be provided with readings for the each class as attachments a week before the lecture associated with the reading as listed below: Week 2: Twenty-first century approaches to ancient problems: Climate and Society by Jade A. d’Alpoim Guedes, Stefani A.

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual October 19, October 19, TuesdayHealth in Schools: Infection Control in K-12 Settings What does it take to keep a school population healthy? For decades, school and public officials have recognized that disease and infection transmission in schools is common, and they have discussed ways to ensure school populations are safe and healthy. Vaccine mandates have been common for several centuries, starting in Massachusetts in the 1850s. By 1963, 20 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico all had a variety of vaccine mandates in place. School nurses were introduced in the United States in the early 1900s, beginning in New York City in 1902, working with the Board of Health and the Board of Education with the goal of addressing minor health issues so the students would not have to miss class.  Today, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, have legislation requiring specific vaccines for k-12 students, although religious and occasionally philosophical exemptions are allowed. Healthy schools require much more than vaccine mandates, including managing other communicable diseases such as pink eye and common colds, maintaining basic school sanitation, and enforcing mask mandates when necessary.  Join us for a panel discussion on infection control in schools during and after the COVID-19 pandemic and hear how our panel of experts identify necessary health and safety measures and how these measures are enforced. This is our 50th Spotlight Series event and it is co-sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins School of Education.health-in-schools

As a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of RNA Biology and Therapeutics and a Scientific Co-Founder at Tevard Biosciences, his work focuses on messenger RNA, a molecule that transmits information from DNA to other parts of the cell. With applications in areas such as gene therapy and vaccine development - the Moderna vaccine, for example, is an mRNA vaccine - this increasingly important field is not only changing the way we approach many healthcare issues, it’s helping to save lives.   But Professor Coller didn’t always know that’s what he wanted to do. In fact, he started undergraduate studies unsure of what he wanted to pursue at all. So how did he get to where he is today? And how did he know that he, too, could be a scientist? In this presentation, Professor Coller will talk about the work he does and explain some of his own professional journey – from growing up in Flint, Michigan to the undergraduate course on genetics that got him hooked in the first place to working at Hopkins today.   Join us to learn about messenger RNA, what it’s like to be a scientist, and how anyone can play a part in changing people’s lives.  i-never-knew-i-d-help-save-lives

Odyssey Virtual October 21, October 21, ThursdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 21, 2021 - October 28, 2021 Thursdays, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ET (3 course hours) Hollywood loves lawyers. And Hollywood loves judges, jurors, surprise witnesses, smoking guns and falsely accused heroes, as well. Perhaps one of the reasons courtroom dramas are so reliable is that they follow a time-honored protocol. Whether they’re plaintiffs or defendants, we’re on the side of a plucky upstart who needs the help of a determined legal hand to fight injustice. Usually, it’s not just the characters being put on trial, either. It’s the establishment, the system, the country, the past, and the future. No wonder there are so many memorable courtroom dramas. Yale film professor Marc Lapadula will be discussing and analyzing a broad lineup of the best and most compelling movie entries in this genre. Movies will include: Judgment At Nuremberg, Witness For The Prosecution, Inherit the Wind, 12 Angry Men, Anatomy of a Murder, To Kill A Mockingbird, And Justice For All, The Verdict, The Accused, My Cousin Vinny, Philadelphia, Erin Brockovich and A Few Good Men. About the Instructor               Marc Lapadula is a Senior Lecturer in Film And Media Studies at Yale University where he runs and teaches the screenwriting program.

He also created the screenwriting programs at both The University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins where he won Outstanding Teaching awards. He has been invited to lecture on a wide range of classic and contemporary films across America as well as in cities in Canada, England and Mexico.

He is currently in post-production on the short-form comedy web series Turf Valley, which he co-created and directed. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE JOHNS HOPKINS BACHELOR OF ARTS PROGRAM IN FILM AND MEDIA STUDIES The Johns Hopkins Bachelor of Arts Program in Film and Media Studies prides itself on balancing a rigorous education in history, aesthetics, and theory with a diverse array of approaches to creative practice, allowing neither to take primacy but producing strong liberal arts graduates who are critical thinkers, creators, and scholars. Our graduates, like our faculty, are hybrids who lead in their fields: able to function in multiple modes of study and craft, and consistently interested and engaged in both. Helping students build bridges to careers in film and television through a variety of professionalization initiatives, including speaker events like this one with Dr. Knowles, is a major focus at FMS. The position of Special Advocate for Alumni and Outreach, currently held by Linda DeLibero, was designed to aid students seeking internships and post-graduate opportunities in the industry, grow professional alumni support networks in Los Angeles and New York, and create new professional avenues for both current FMS students and alums. Each Intersession, FMS curates a trip to Los Angeles for eight FMS undergraduate majors and minors. The focus of the trip is to expose our students to the myriad opportunities available to them in the entertainment business. They visit production companies, studios, agencies, and individual creatives working within film, television, and other media industries. Since the program started in January 2015, the involvement of Johns Hopkins alumni has grown to include more than 100 members in the Los Angeles area, and the growth of this alumni network has immeasurably increased the number of students who are placed in both internships and entry positions in the industry in Los Angeles and New York.

After much confusion and misinformation, there emerged a consensus that airborne transmission from very small respiratory droplets is the most important route for the spread of COVID-19. Each stage in this transmission pathway is mediated by complex flow phenomena, ranging from air-mucous interaction inside the respiratory tract, turbulence in the exhaled jet/ambient flow, to inhalation and deposition of these aerosols in the lungs. Given the emergence of the Delta-variant and the resurgence of infections in many communities, the importance of communicating infection risk across scientific disciplines, as well as to policy/decision makers, is more important than ever. Inspired by the Drake Equation that provides a framework to estimate the seemingly inestimable probability of advanced extraterrestrial life, I propose a relatively simple model for estimating the risk of airborne transmission of a respiratory infection such as COVID-19. The model couples ideas from fluid dynamics with factors involved in airborne transmission and predicts the effects of social distancing and facemask use on transmission risk. The model is designed to serve not only as a common basis for scientific inquiry across disciplinary boundaries, but to also be understandable by a broad audience outside science and academia.the-un-known-un-knowns-of-covid-

We also touch on certain nuances of our selection process for the Supreme Court and some important cases (Dred Scott, Plessy, Ozawa, Thind, Lim, Scottsboro, McClesky) in addition to certain events such as Rosewood, Emmett Till, Brown v. The Board of Education and its progeny, Wilmington and Tulsa incidents etc.    Session 1 10/26 What kind do we have?

Quarles is an attorney, intersectional critical race researcher, and historian who teaches at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. His courses focus on deficits in America’s storytelling, erased and marginalized histories, and U.S. racial history. Within those spaces, his methodology embraces intersectional frames and other critical lenses and, in so doing, enables truly transformational learning. Quarles began his study of race matters under the late Hon. Leon A. Higginbotham while studying at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He is also a graduate of Brown University.  He currently sits on the board of The African American Policy Forum and works on several initiatives which impact and support the development of truth narratives to counteract mainstream narratives about race and social justice.  This unique space has enabled him to provide students with a more holistic view of the world that is rooted in empathy and a view of research that informs social activism as a moral imperative.  Tuition Remission and Refund Policies Full-time JHU faculty/staff, their spouses or same-sex domestic partners, JHU retirees and their spouses or same-sex domestic partners are eligible for tuition remission. The tuition remission form is required.

Gather round the spooky flashlight for stories, games, trivia, and more! Special ghost, er, guest, Dr. Moiya McTier is an astrophysicist who spent her PhD trying to figure out where the aliens in our galaxy might be. She's also a folklorist who specializes in building and analyzing fictional worlds. Put those sets of expertise together and you get Exolore, Moiya's podcast that focuses on worldbuilding through the lens of facts and science. But Moiya's true passion in life is her cat, Kosmo. And also bread. MEET THE PERFORMERS As a lung cancer researcher, Em Costa studies the biological effects of poorly understood gene mutations, and so spends much of her time thinking really hard and pipetting a lot of pink liquids. When she's not doing that (or Facts Machine-ing, of course), you can find her cyanotyping, tending an impractically large windowsill garden, or obsessively Googling birds-of-paradise. Noah Guiberson (A&S '15) got his start writing and hosting trivia nights in the rugged pub quiz circuits of Baltimore and New York. Aside from recording and editing episodes of Facts Machine, Noah produces SCIENCE 101 at Caveat. A Weill Cornell neuroscientist by day, he seeks to answer the greatest trivia question of them all: How does the brain work? Dr. Rob Frawley is an alumnus of Weill Cornell Graduate School where he got his PhD in orthopedics and cell biology. A long-time NYC trivia host, Rob now works with BioBus Inc. delivering science to schools all over New York City with a bus full of microscopes, amazing samples, and funny games. Rob spends the rest of his time swimming and waiting for it to be Pi Day.

Odyssey Virtual October 30, October 30, SaturdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 30, 2021 Saturday, 9:00 AM ET (3 course hours) Want to feel like a midshipman for a day? “Mini Academy” is back! On October 19, 1781, British General Charles Cornwallis surrendered to General George Washington, Commander-in-Chief of the United States Continental Army, effectively ending the military portion of the Revolutionary War, although limited hostilities would continue as the political path to American independence took almost three additional years. Annapolis played a prominent role in many key events both preceding and following the Battle of Yorktown as an emerging nation struggled to meet the obligations of the subsequent Treaty of Paris. The city served as the first peacetime capital of the United States, where Congress accepted George Washington’s resignation as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army and ratified the Treaty of Paris. Congress also made two crucial appointments: Thomas Jefferson as a trade minister to France and John Jay as Secretary of Foreign Affairs. Join us to analyze the historical significance of the Battle of Yorktown and its aftermath, including how Annapolis connected the Revolution to the Constitution. 9:00 -10:30 a.m. Session 1: The Siege of Yorktown   This battle was a critical turning point in the Revolution; it convinced the British it was impossible to retain the American colonies through war. In October 1781, combined French and American forces under General George Washington and the Comte de Rochambeau surrounded a British army led by Lord Cornwallis, leading to the surrender of over 7,000 soldiers, a major part of a much larger campaign that carried the war as far afield as the West Indies and the English Channel as well as closer to home. Annapolis served as a crucial staging post for French soldiers camped on the grounds of St. John's College and was thus an important component of the defeat of the British Empire in America. Matthew Dziennik, PhD, University of Edinburgh, is an Associate Professor of British and British Imperial History in the Department of History at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis and is the author of The Fatal Land: War, Empire, and the Highland Soldier in British America (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2015).  He previously served as a guide at the National Colonial Battlefield Park in Yorktown and is currently working on a book about military recruitment in the British Empire.   10:45 a.m. -12:15 pm - Session 2: The Treaty of Paris   Almost two years after the Siege of Yorktown, the Treaty of Paris was signed on September 3, 1783. Many believe this treaty simply ended the war, and it did, but it also kicked off a difficult and violent four-year period often overlooked in the history books, where a broke Congress could not meet its domestic or international financial obligations as mandated by the treaty. After multiple but ultimately futile attempts to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles, a key meeting in Annapolis that met as Shays’ Rebellion was underway convinced many key founders that the Articles of Confederation must be replaced with an entirely new Constitution. Annapolis as a city—and Maryland as a state—were center stage as the United States struggled to meet its responsibilities as a newly sovereign nation. Mark Croatti, MA, University of Southern California, is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Political Science at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, teaching courses on the U.S. Constitution, Comparative Politics, and International Relations.   About the Instructors     Mark Croatti, MA, University of Southern California, is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Political Science at the United States Naval    Academy in Annapolis, teaching courses on the U.S. Constitution, Comparative Politics, and International Relations.

AlexanderGrassHumanitiesInstitute HopkinsatHome Virtual November 04, November 4, Thursday  Brought to you by Hopkins at Home Follow us on Twitter to join the conversation: @HopkinsatHome, #HopkinsatHome November 4, 2021 - November 18, 2021 (3 sessions) Thursdays, 6:00 - 7:00 PM ET This Hopkins at Home course invites you to make your own discoveries as you read and discuss this classic of ancient culture. We will begin by reviewing the encapsulated plot summary, which is supplied by the Homeric poet in book one, at a Council of the gods on Mount Olympus. Decisions made at this council then set the stage for the interconnected adventures of Odysseus, his wife Penelope, and their son Telemachus—who was an infant when his father left but is now about twenty. We will follow these three plot lines as they play out across all 24 books of the Odyssey. For each of our three discussion sections, you will have the option of writing a close reading of a pre-selected passage of text, about 15-20 lines in length. Participants who choose to do so can share some of their observations in the weekly discussion sections.  There will be three pre-recorded lectures for this class, plus an introductory review of oral poetry. This introductory overview will also include a step-by-step guide to the close-reading process. The three class lectures, each of which is followed by a discussion section, are designed to guide your reading of the twenty-four books of The Odyssey.  Course text: The Odyssey of Homer, translated by Richmond Lattimore (Harper Collins).  https://www.harpercollins.com/products/the-odyssey-of-homer-richmond-la…  Please note that there are many used copies of Lattimore’s translation of The Odyssey available from Amazon and other vendors. The year of publication does not matter, and cover images may vary; just keep in mind that you are strongly encouraged to use only Richmond Lattimore’s translation for this class. We will be looking closely at the text, and there may be significant variations in the phrasing of different translations. You may also find it helpful to have the paper text at hand to write your own notes in.  the-odyssey-of-homer-a-close-re2
