Feature stories:

Trout and Man at Yale

An early encounter with Audubon’s artwork sent James Prosek ’97 down a rare path for an undergraduate. Already an accomplished angler, he has become an author-illustrator, and, as he puts it, a “P.R. agent” for trout. This month he will see his treatise on the species published by Alfred A Knopf.


Back to the “Killing Fields”

During the 1970s, dictator Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge followers murdered more than 1.5 million Cambodians. History professor Ben Kiernan, with support from the State Department, Yale’s Center for International and Area Studies, and the Orville H. Schell Jr. Center for International Human Rights at the Law School, is documenting the genocide—and trying to bring the perpetrators to justice.


The High Cost of Quality Science

Increasingly, good scientific research requires high-priced talent and multi-million-dollar equipment. With cuts in government funds looming, Yale researchers are concentrating on their strengths, upgrading their laboratory facilities, and seeking out some innovative ways to stretch lean resources.
