Paris became the city of our romantic imagination at the turn of the century. The broad and open boulevards at its center, products of Baron von Haussmann’s ambitious modernization plan begun in the middle of the 19th century, provided the setting for theatres, concert halls, cafes, and vibrant street life. The posters and paintings of Toulouse-Lautrec, the urban scenes of the great impressionist and post-impressionist painters, and the works of symbolist poets and painters created other new aesthetic worlds. A series of Paris Expositions culminated in 1900, celebrating an increasingly globalized economy and the technological innovations, such as electricity, that would transform the new century.Students will experience an interdisciplinary look at the cultural intersections of 19th century Paris: architecture, urban design, socio-political issues, the Paris fairs, cross-currents of painting and the other arts._____________________________________________________________________________________________________Johns Hopkins Tuition Remission Policies  Johns Hopkins alumni, staff, faculty and their spouse or domestic partners are eligible for tuition remission for Odyssey lifelong learning courses.

The idea of a working quantum computer has however, only been a subject of interest since the 1980s, when theoretical physicist Richard Feynman began to think about its possibilities. Because of the physical limitations of classical computing, it has been thought for decades that a quantum computer might be capable of performing calculations significantly faster. This class will give students an introduction to the theories behind quantum computing and explore the technical and conceptual difficulties in building one. Students will look closely at several forms of quantum computers, like superconducting and trapped ion, and use IBM Quantum Composer tools. No previous experience in quantum mechanics or programming is required for this class._____________________________________________________________________________________________________Johns Hopkins Tuition Remission Policies  Johns Hopkins alumni, staff, faculty and their spouse or domestic partners are eligible for tuition remission for Odyssey lifelong learning courses.

Odyssey Virtual August 30, August 30, FridayAlexander in Antiquity and Japanese Anime, Juan Dopico, Virtual, OdysseyCourse Title: Alexander in Antiquity and Japanese AnimeInstructor:  Dr. Juan Dopico, A&S '23 (PhD)Brought to you by Odyssey   August 26, 2024 - September 30, 2024 (6 Sessions)  Friday,  5:00PM ET - 6:00PM ET  Virtual via Zoom  Course Description: Alexander the Great is one of the most famous historical figures in the human imagination for his multiple achievements. His conquests spread from Macedonia and Egypt to the Indus River Valley bringing Greek culture as far as India. In Gandhara art, the Buddha is depicted with traditional Indian elements, but with Greek clothing and stylization. Alexander also founded the city of Alexandria in Egypt, which would later become a cultural and intellectual center of the Mediterranean until the Middle Ages, hosting famous poets, such as Callimachus, Jewish philosophers, such as Philo, and intellectual movements such as Gnosticism.Therefore, it is a given that Alexander has had countless biographies written about him in multiple languages since antiquity. But how do we account for a sci-fi rendition of Alexander’s life in Japanese animation – a land which never had any contact with Alexander directly? What are the reasons for Japanese producers and animators to create an animated biography?In this seminar style course, students will meet weekly to explore and discuss not only the various adaptations of Alexander from antiquity to our modern day, but also to engage with how ideas have crossed time and space. In particular, we will see the interplay of the Mediterranean West and Japan, exploring questions of cultural imperialism in the early 20th century and modern day via Philhellenism (“love of Greece”). _____________________________________________________________________________________________________Johns Hopkins Tuition Remission Policies  Johns Hopkins alumni, staff, faculty and their spouse or domestic partners are eligible for tuition remission for Odyssey lifelong learning courses.

In this projector-driven course, we will review and discuss the work of such B&W masters as Ralph Gibson, Ansel Adams, Michael Kenna, Ray K. Metzker, W. Eugene Smith, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Arnold Newman, Alan Schaller, Richard Avedon, Walker Evans, André Kertész, Aaron Siskind, Garry Winogrand, and Diane Arbus as we wrestle with the question: what makes a great B&W photograph? Focusing on tone, texture, form, point of view, visual metaphor, narrative and the like, we’ll identify the elements that comprise a fine-art B&W image, all toward one end: to help you refine both your eye and craft as you shape your own special vision. Our emphasis on composition also will help those interested in refining their color photography. In the last class, students will be encouraged but not required to show their own work. Please take note: portions of this course overlap with the professor’s classic street photography course (traditionally offered in the spring), albeit often with a different emphasis.skill level: all levels, from beginner to advanced._____________________________________________________________________________________________________Johns Hopkins Tuition Remission Policies  Johns Hopkins alumni, staff, faculty and their spouse or domestic partners are eligible for tuition remission for Odyssey lifelong learning courses.

Taking on a big project like this can be intimidating so I'll show you a framework to break this down into small, reasonable, and realistic steps to make writing and publishing a book an achievable goal. In this course, you'll learn the "anatomy" of a book, how to get your ideas organized into a succinct roadmap, and how to overcome writer's block. Finally, I will teach you how to approach the editing process, how to format your manuscript, how to design a cover, and how to self-publish on Amazon KDP: one of the biggest publishing platforms in the world.*Note: This course is open to both non-fiction and fiction writers.*Classes will be recorded as a courtesy for students who have to miss a class.Reviews from prior students:“I thought that John did a phenomenal job both in planning content and presenting the course. His significant resources were very helpful and I will continually refer to them as I move forward in writing my book.

Odyssey Virtual November 02, November 2, SaturdayDescribing the Indescribable, German authors after the Holocaust, Cara Pickens-Noble, Odyssey, Virtual, Holocaust, GermanCourse Title: Describing the Indescribable, German authors after the HolocaustInstructor:  Cara Pickens-Noble, A&S '17Brought to you by Odyssey   November 2, 2024 - December 07, 2024 (6 Sessions)  Saturday,  6:00PM ET - 8:00PM ET  Virtual via Zoom   Course Description: In this course we will focus on post-Holocaust literature by West German authors, specifically the writings of W.G. Sebald. In his book “ The Emigrants”, Sebald gives voice to the life of people who were forced to react to circumstances beyond their control . For their safety,  they had to leave the country of their birth. We will explore how differently the protagonists coped with their uprooted lives  and yet how similar their lives ended, often prematurely, often by suicide.  Sebald is one of the few, if not the only, writer of the post-Holocaust era who gives voice to the culture and the lives that were destroyed. Sebald is also a master of nuances, his language demands close attention, and more often than not, his meaning shines through in sub clauses ; i.e. one has to read between the lines. These narratives are consistent with a post-Holocaust view associated with fragmentation, disruption, alienation and a general sense of hopelessness._____________________________________________________________________________________________________Johns Hopkins Tuition Remission Policies  Johns Hopkins alumni, staff, faculty and their spouse or domestic partners are eligible for tuition remission for Odyssey lifelong learning courses.
