  • Customers are less inclined to buy traditionally male products if they think they've been manufactured by women, new research shows. (The penalty doesn't work in the other direction.) "We've looked at craft beer and cupcakes, but this could extend to any type of product from academic research to entrepreneurship," Shelley Correll says. "And that has very serious implications for all of us."

  • “Writing a novel is like going off on your own and painting a giant mural that no one has commissioned or asked to see. You make a big commitment to a risky project. You have to be willing to take those risks, while also managing the negative ideas and feelings that come up while pursuing such a difficult goal. It takes a lot of guts, it takes a lot of stubbornness, and it takes a lot of faith. Even now, as deep in my career as I am, I'm still managing those challenges.

    When I graduated from college, I took a job on Wall Street. I ended up quitting it pretty quickly to give writing a serious shot, taking odd jobs while also writing on my own. At the same time, my mother became terminally ill with cancer. I was working on my own, considering what I was supposed to do with my life. My mother’s illness and later, death, were a huge blow to our family, but it provided a moment of clarity about the fragility of life and that we should all try to do what we really want to do. The first novel I ever wrote failed — no one wanted to publish it. It wasn't any good, but it helped me learn the value of endurance and facing serious failure. I wrote my first published novel while pursuing my Master of Fine Arts, with the support of colleagues and a great mentor. I still struggle with the challenges that come with writing novels, but with experience I gained a measure of faith that things will work out, even when it seems that they won't.” - Chang-rae Lee, professor of creative writing

  • Part 2: Right now, because of a shortage of trained therapists, children may wait as long as 18 months after an autism diagnosis to begin receiving treatment. The only way to break through this problem, says Dennis Wall, associate professor of pediatrics, is to create reliable, home-based treatment systems. Tune in as he shares his work to develop a smartphone app that could simultaneously treat and track autism.
