AlexanderGrassHumanitiesInstitute KriegerSchoolofArtsSciences HopkinsatHome Region June 17, June 17, ThursdaySponsored by Hopkins Alumni & Hopkins at Home Derived from the French word terre, meaning “earth”, terroir refers to the environmental factors that affect crops in specific reasons. During this event, you’ll uncover the terroir of the Pacific Northwest region of the United States through three lenses while exploring some wine from the region. As we discuss terroir in food with a focus on wine, we'll hear from viticulturists and fellow alumni, David (School of Medicine '72) and Jeanne (School of Medicine '69) Crawford Beck, who will share their knowledge of terroir as it relates to the grapes they grow at the Crawford Beck Vineyard in Amity, OR and lead us through a wine tasting (optional) featuring Winderlea Vineyard & Winery, a local Oregon wine. We'll also be joined by two faculty members from the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences (KSAS). Bill Egginton, the Decker Professor in the Humanities and Director of the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute, will explore the ways in which the Pacific Northwest region mirrors various parts of Europe and how we can find bits of that cultural influence in this region of the US. Tom Lectka, Jean and Norman Scowe Professor of organic chemistry, will share the science behind the grape and how chemistry shapes our experiences in taste. This conversation will be moderated by alumna Eugenia Liu, KSAS '96, member of the Hopkins Portland alumni chapter committee.  We have put together a pair of 2017 Winderlea pinot noir wines, one from the Crawford Beck Vineyard and one from the Winderlea Estate Vineyard, for our tasting and comparison. They are from the same vintage, same winemaker, same grape, same region of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, but different vineyards on different soils, different farming practices, different environmental conditions, etc. The special price for JHU will be $110 with FedEx ground “cold chain” shipping for quality control. This price will be valid for orders through 5pm PT on May 27 (for delivery by June 9) - for orders placed after, the cost will increase to $125. June 10 will be the last day for orders to assure arrival for program. To order, please go to: https://winderlea.com/product/crawford-beck-pack/ You can choose your own wines for this exercise if you prefer. We cannot suggest specific wines because the wine availability and stock varies so widely. Go to your favorite wine shop and ask a knowledgeable sales person for two bottles, preferably of pinot noir, a delicate grape that shows the subtleties of terroir better than some other less delicate grapes, look specifically for from the same vintage and winery, but different vineyards or from the same winery and vineyard but different vintages. It is advantageous to have a snack to go along with your sipping. You should have the same snack, very lightly flavored, for all of your sipping. Multiple snacks, especially highly flavored cheeses or charcuterie can skew your palate if you are trying to discern the differences between fine wines. “Oyster” crackers are ideal, but our favorite snack is the French hors d’oeuvre called gougères. They are very simple to make, but take caution: they are addictive!  The recipe will be shared with all registrants.  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.on-the-road-with-jhu-terroir-a-s

HopkinsatHomeJune 16, June 16, WednesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home, Hopkins on the Hill, and the Johns Hopkins University Office of Research Follow us on Twitter to join the conversation: @HopkinsatHome, #HopkinsatHome ABOUT THE PROGRAM There's an old joke that "Everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it." Dr. Zaitchik wants to do something about it, and with weather patterns changing all over the world, we have to do something about it. His team doesn't try to change the weather, but they do try to understand and predict the ways in which weather and climate impact things we all care about: our food, our health, our safety. Come hear about Dr. Zaitchik’s recent projects, ranging from predicting flash droughts and outbreaks of enteric diseases, to enhancing the value of the JH Coronavirus Dashboard for COVID-19 research. ABOUT THE PRESENTERS Benjamin Zaitchik, PhD, is an associate professor of earth and planetary sciences. His research is directed at understanding, managing, and coping with climatic and hydrologic variability. Understanding variability requires examination of the natural processes that drive climate and surface change. Managing variability relates to our ability to control anthropogenic influences on climate and hydrology at the local, regional, and global scales. Coping with variability includes improved forecast systems and methods of risk assessment. In each of these areas of research he employs a combination of observation-both in situ and remotely sensed-and numerical modeling techniques. This includes work on fundamental atmospheric and hydrological processes as well as applications to water resources, agriculture, energy, and human health. Prior to joining JHU, Ben was a research associate at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and an American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellow at the U.S. Department of State.  Keri N. Althoff, PhD, is the Provost’s Fellow for Research Communication and an associate professor of epidemiology in the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the School of Medicine. As a Provost’s Fellow, she is expanding our institutional capacity to share research achievements. Dr. Althoff's research interest is aging in the context of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. She serves as the co-director of the North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration on Research and Design (NA-ACCORD), which is a collaboration of more than 20 longitudinal HIV cohort studies of adults with individual-level harmonized data. She earned her bachelor's degree at the University of Iowa, then her MPH and PhD from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Prior to becoming an accomplished epidemiologist, Dr. Althoff worked in public relations and journalism. Her skills and passion for sharing research with broad audiences make her the perfect host for Hopkins on the Hill at Home 2021.  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./event/HAHHopontheHill061621
