Five Berkeley professors have received Fulbright Scholar grants for the 1998-'99 academic year. The grants enable them to teach at a foreign university for part of the academic year.
Berkeley's recipients are: Barbara Christian, who taught "American Studies" for the Kyoto American Studies Summer Seminar in Kyoto, Japan over the summer; Susan Mace, who will teach "American Literature and American Studies" in September at the Tallinn Pedagogical University and the Estonian Humanities Institute in Tallin, Estonia; William Satariano, to teach "Aging, Health and Functioning" at the University of Amsterdam in Amsterdam, Netherlands; Steven Segal, who is teaching "The Australian and U.S. Experience in Managing Mental Health Care" at the University of Sydney in Sydney, Australia; and Oliver Williamson, who plans to teach "The Economics of Organization" later this spring at the University of Siena in Siena, Italy.
Roger Howe and Richard Muller
The two were cited for innovative contributions leading to the inception of the field of microelectromechanical systems, which applies integrated circuit technologies to the construction of mechanical as well as electronic devices.
The Distinguished Planning Educator Award is the highest prize given in the planning education field and this is the first time a member of the Berkeley faculty has received the honor.
Her latest book, "Imaging Sound: An Ethnomusicological Study of Music, Art and Culture in Mughal India," was published by the University of Chicago Press last spring.
Wade has also recently been elected president of the Society for Ethnomusicology, the major scholarly arm of her discipline.
The award was established in honor of Kenneth Pitzer, a long-time member of the chemistry faculty who died in 1997. Established by Pitzer's family and friends, it supports research related to his fields of theoretical and physical chemistry.

Paul Wright and Masayoshi Tomizuka
