Feature stories:

An Anatomy of Multiculturalism

No academic topic these days inflames passions more—on campus and off—than which books by whom should make the cultural “cut.” The dean of Yale College (himself an English professor) offers a personal view of the process.


In the Eye of the Beholder

For better and worse, Yale has traditionally shied away from big-league public relations. With the arrival of a former counselor to New York governor Mario Cuomo, the university seems determined to attend to its image with new vigor.


The Heart of the Flame

The way things burn has much to do with whether the result is destructive or constructive. Several Yale scientists, including a “firebug from way back,” are analyzing combustion in hopes of getting more from their fuel.
