Latest issue: CAM 81


In the Easter issue of CAM, we speak to four leading Cantabrigians who have turned any notion of a quiet retirement on its head, are introduced to the concept of bibliotherapy by alumnae Susan Elderkin and Ella Berthoud, and explore the art of the fixed term with Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz. 

Highlights include:

  • One age: Calling the under-60s: in 2017, this is what age looks like.

  • There’s a book for that: Whether your problem be moral, social, ethical or – frankly – hypothetical, the novel cure never fails.

  • Of mice and women: Last year, Professor Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz made not one, but two world-changing discoveries.

  • Eight hundred years of history: And just seven years in which to make your mark. CAM talks to the Vice-Chancellor about his term of office.

  • A new normal: Forget everything you know about how the world works. This is the global economy, version 3.0
