Feature stories:

The Pathways of Pain

Psychic trauma takes many forms, and can last a lifetime. Yale researchers from such disparate disciplines as medicine and literature are joining forces to explore ways of easing the burdens.


´╗┐Toward a Culture of Conversation

Stephen Carter’s books have established the Law School professor as one of the country’s most prominent commentators on race, religion, and government. His biggest complaint is that Americans would prefer to shout than listen.


´╗┐Lighting a Special Flame

The Special Olympics—to be held in New Haven this summer—will be the largest sporting event of 1995. As one of the main hosts, Yale is straining under the weight of preparations, but betting that the games will pay dividends in local good will.
