CHICAGO IN THE NEWS
ACADEMIC ACTION FIGURE Martha Nussbaum
On the heels of winning the $200,000 Grawemeyer Prize for her 1997 book, "Cultivating Humanity: A Classical Defense of Reform in Liberal Education," Martha Nussbaum, professor in philosophy, law, and classics, was named by TIME magazine as one of seven thinkers "coming up with the new ideas that will change the world."

LEADER OF THE PACK Seymour Hersh, AB'58
"In the American reportage of Afghanistan one byline stands out in the fog of war: Seymour Hersh of the New Yorker."

RESEARCH AT CHICAGO
BIG STEP in "tiny"art of nanofabrication
What began as a just-for-fun experiment resulted in a new technique for producing structures at the scale of atoms and molecules. The "self-assembly"technique developed by physics professor Heinrich Jaeger and Ward Lopes, SM'99, PhD'01, precisely controls the growth of metal wires along tiny scaffolds that automatically assemble themselves, following nature's own tendencies.
