HopkinsatHome May 26, May 26, TuesdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home May 26, 2020 - June 23, 2020 (5 weeks) Tuesdays, 5:30pm - 6:30pm EDT Geoffrey Chaucer is sometimes called the 'father of English literature' not only because he wrote so well but because he has been, and remains, a poet who had a unique power to capture in language the foibles and strengths, the folly and wisdom, and the rich variety of perspectives that make us human.  Though his the language in which he wrote (Middle English) requires an initial stretch for modern readers, it is quickly mastered and well worth the effort, since Chaucer was also the first poet in English to use the language with such finesse and precision. We will read five of the most accomplished of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and I will work to explain his unusual and innovative techniques for bringing the fourteenth-century England to life in language. Course Schedule: May 26             The General Prologue to The Canterbury Tales June 2              The Miller’s Prologue and Tale            June 9              The Pardoner’s Prologue and Tale June 16             The Wife of Bath’s Prologue and Tale June 23            The Nun’s Priest’s Tale and [the Close of The Canterbury Tales]                           The Introduction to the Parson’s Tale and Chaucer’s Retraction   All texts are available in Middle English with a Modern English translation on the Harvard Chaucer website:   https://chaucer.fas.harvard.edu/pages/text-and-translations Texts are also available in Middle English (with Modern English glosses) in the following readily-available editions: The Canterbury Tales: Seventeen Tales and the General Prologue, 3rd ed., ed. V.A. Kolve et al. (New York, NY: Norton, 2018). https://www.amazon.com/Canterbury-Tales-Seventeen-Prologue-Critical-ebook/dp/B07LFHMRZB/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=kolve+chaucer&qid=1589304106&sr=8-2 The Norton Chaucer: The Canterbury Tales, ed. David Lawton (New York, NY: Norton, 2019). https://www.amazon.com/Norton-Chaucer-David-Lawton/dp/0393603474/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=lawton+chaucer&qid=1589304287&sr=8-1 Course Instructor Christopher Cannon works on medieval literature and, in particular, the emergence of 'English literature' as a meaningful category. He has traced that emergence conceptually (in the intellectual contexts in which it developed), philologically (in the history of English) and, comparatively (as Latin learning produced a 'grammatical' English and its poetics). He is the author of From Literacy to Literature (Oxford University Press, 2016), Middle English Literature: A Cultural History (2008), The Grounds of English Literature (2004), and The Making of Chaucer's English: A Study of Words (1998).  He is general co-editor of Oxford Studies in Medieval Literature and Culture (a monograph series) and of the Oxford Chaucer (an edition in progress of all of Chaucer's writing). He has held a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and has received the William Riley Parker Prize from the MLA (2014). He came to Johns Hopkins in 2017 after teaching at NYU, Cambridge, Oxford and UCLA.  chaucer-five-canterbury-tales

KriegerSchoolofArtsSciences PeabodyConservatory HopkinsatHome Virtual May 22, May 22, FridayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home May 22, 2020 - June 26, 2020 (6 weeks) Fridays, 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM  Each week will consist of an interactive short lecture followed by class discussion. Occasional recommended readings will be shared via email the week prior to class. Course Description Ever wondered why music is the universal language of humankind? Weaving together questions, theories, and evidence from cognitive psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, ethnomusicology, linguistics, and computer science we will discover why music is so fundamental to us humans and why, no matter the obstacles, it's here to stay. Week 1: What Is Music and How Is It Processed in The Mind/Brain? Week 2: The Music-Language Relationship Week 3: Emotion and The Role of Music Therapy Week 4: At The Intersection of Composition and Artificial Intelligence Week 5: Synesthesia and Alternate Worlds of Reality Week 6: Bridging The Science of Music with Policymaking Course Instructor Dr. Lopez-Gonzalez’s research interests lie at the nexus of human creativity and general intelligence, artificial intelligence, and society. For Dr. Lopez-Gonzalez, building an interactive human-centric relationship with technology is critical for an ethical and sustainable future with autonomous, intelligent systems. The core of her work lies in mapping out the cognitive behavioral and neural correlates of how humans seamlessly adapt to multisensory, multi-agent environments. Using an interdisciplinary approach that merges questions, theory, methods, data, and experiences from both the Brain and Cognitive Sciences and the Arts, Dr. Lopez-Gonzalez is identifying the fundamental and nuanced roles of emotion, knowledge, and cognitive plasticity within real-time improvisatory and collaborative problem solving, decision-making, and action behaviors. Her work focuses on four applied domains: human-like automation (e.g. robotics), interdisciplinary Science-Art education (e.g. medical humanities), patient-centric digital app engagement in healthcare (e.g. brain disorders), and end user information technology education (e.g. data privacy and safety).your-brain-on-music-why-we-love-

NitzeSchoolofAdvancedInternationalStudies HopkinsatHome VirtualMay 21, May 21, ThursdayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home What is the future of world order? The international system built out of the Second World War is showing signs of strain, if not crisis.   In his 2014 book World Order, Dr. Henry Kissinger argued that creating a new international order, adapted to the realities of the twenty-first century, was the greatest challenge facing statesmen today. This sense of urgency has been increased by two developments: a return of great-power competition that increases fears that the West has entered a period of decline; and profound and unsettling technological changes that have transformed the basis of social, economic, and political life. Under these pressures, has the idea of a “liberal international order” lost its value? How should we think about the future state of international relations, and how might it differ from the past? What can we learn from previous efforts to construct a world order conducive to peace and prosperity? As we enter the third decade of the twenty-first century, we need new thinking about the future of the international system—thinking that more accurately reflects the era in which we live.  Join Dr. Frank Gavin as you explore first-order questions about the material, political, and intellectual foundations of the current world order and its likely future direction. Tune in for Dr. Gavin's future talk on Hopkins at Home. Tuesday, June 9th at noon EDT | Nuclear Weapons and American Grand Strategy   Francis J. Gavin is the Giovanni Agnelli Distinguished Professor and the inaugural director of the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at SAIS-Johns Hopkins University. In 2013, Gavin was appointed the first Frank Stanton Chair in Nuclear Security Policy Studies and Professor of Political Science at MIT.  Before joining MIT, he was the Tom Slick Professor of International Affairs and the Director of the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law at the University of Texas.  He directs the Nuclear Studies Research Initiative and, with James Steinberg, the International Policy Scholars Consortium and Network.  From 2005 until 2010, he directed the American Assembly’s multiyear, national initiative, the Next Generation Project: U.S. Global Policy and the Future of International Institutions.  Gavin is the Chairman of the Board of Editors of the Texas National Security Review, a Non-Resident Senior Advisor at the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, an affiliate of MIT’s Security Studies Program, a senior fellow of the Clements Center for National Security, a distinguished scholar at the Robert S. Strauss Center, a senior advisor to the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project at the Woodrow Wilson Center, and a life-member of the Council on Foreign Relations.  He received a PhD and MA in history from the University of Pennsylvania, an MS in modern European history from Oxford University, and a BA in political science from the University of Chicago. His writings include Gold, Dollars, and Power: The Politics of International Monetary Relations, 1958-1971 and Nuclear Statecraft: History and Strategy in America’s Atomic Age.  His latest book, Nuclear Weapons and American Grand Strategy, was published by Brookings Institution Press in January 2020./event/hahfrankgavin2
