Taking the Measure of Children’s TV

Any parent can tell you that television affects children’s behavior. It takes professionals to figure out exactly how. Two Yale psychologists have taken a close look at the impact of Barney, Big Bird, and the Power Rangers.


The Emerging Urban University

With a combination of moral commitment and enlightened self-interest, Yale is embracing the realities of its urban setting. The process is changing the way the university thinks of itself, not to mention the nature of the student experience.


What an Attic!

For nearly three centuries, Yale has been acquiring major works of art, precious books, and the papers of the great. At the same time, hundreds of artifacts have arrived unbidden. They range from Sitting Bull’s moccasins to a flag made for Gertrude Stein.
