CAM 88

In the Michaelmas term issue of CAM, Lady Hale (Girton 1963) and third-year Mathematician Maisie Muir discuss Yorkshire roots and the challenge of being outnumbered, we investigate how modern technology is forcing human rights into the spotlight, and discover what Jane Austen would have to say about our digital lives. 

Highlights include:

  • My room, your room: Lady Hale (Girton 1963), now president of the Supreme Court, meets the current occupant of her old room.
  • Inflammation: It’s linked to obesity, diabetes and depression, but its full action and impact are yet to be fully understood.
  • Human rights in a digital age: Modern technology – from data to social media – is forcing human rights into the spotlight.
  • Austen in the 21st century: Beyond the carriages and costumes, Jane Austen has more to say about our digital lives than you might imagine.
  • How to be modern: Why do students want to decolonise their curricula, and what does it have  to do with the rest of us?
  • Absolute zero: Dr Emily Shuckburgh, Director of Cambridge Zero, on meeting the climate change challenge.
  • Educate. Empower. Entertain: The Cambridge University African Caribbean Society is no standard society – it’s a celebration, a safe space and a campaign.
