This Friday will be the last print edition of Varsity, and the end of my first time of writing for Varsity. Easter Term means that there won’t be any print editions, apart from a May Week special. I can’t wait to be involved in another term’s writing, despite only being online.
In the edition, you’ll find an article I wrote about whether UK universities should be working with Israel. I’ve been looking at recent events in UK universities which have a distinctly anti-Israel stance. This is despite a recommendation from the British ambassador to Israel that UK universities work more closely with Israel’s higher education system. It’s my longest piece yet, and one that required more research and a lot of e-mails!
I’m currently writing a piece about the recreation of an historic Cambridge prank, which in 1958 involved 12 students who hoisted an Austin 7 car on to the roof of Senate House. This is happening in June, although this time the car will be placed onto a platform replica of Senate House. I’ve been reading about this and other Cambridge pranks in a light-hearted piece, which definitely contrasts with the previous week’s article.
I’ll post links and pictures on Friday.
