Latest issue: CAM 82


In the Michaelmas issue of CAM we investigate the mystery of gravity, catch up with the new Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen Toope and trace the extraordinary tale of the raising of the whale, at the Museum of Zoology.

Highlights include:

  • Hall of wonders: From whales to moas – behind the scenes at the Museum of Zoology.
  • Bop on: The quintessential College entertainment, the bop has it all: music, dancing – and a sticky carpet.
  • A new Vice-Chancellor: We speak to Cambridge’s new Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen Toope (Trinity 1983).
  • Spoken word: No set. No music. Just you – and the mic. No wonder performance poetry is taking the culture world by storm.
  • A force to be reckoned with: Gravity is one of the universe’s last remaining great mysteries. From the apple to black holes, CAM investigates.
