Volume 106, No. 1


Youth, Interrupted
The Adolescent Mental Health Initiative is a major, Penn-led effort to address what one expert calls the “chronic diseases of the young.”
By Samuel Hughes

The Ethnologist Sets Out
William Curtis Farabee conducted pioneering studies of the Amazon for the Penn Museum in the early part of the 20th century. His journals and notebooks offer extraordinary glimpses of the area’s indigenous peoples, and the artifacts he brought back offer an unmatched—and still largely unexamined—treasure-trove of cultural materials.
By Beebe Bahrami

Web, Take Two
The ranger of a virtual dog park, an Internet entrepreneur-turned-venture capitalist, a story scout, a “fake engineer,” and a word-of-mouth marketer are among the Penn players in a movement known (by some) as Web 2.0.
By Susan Frith
