  • The Isis Magazine is a student publication at the University of Oxford. The magazine was established at the university in 1892. Traditionally a rival to the student newspaper Cherwell, it was finally acquired by the latter's publishing house, Oxford Student Publications Limited, in the late 1990s. It now operates as a termly magazine and website, providing an outlet for features journalism, although for most of its life it appeared weekly. The two publications are named after the two rivers in Oxford, "Isis" being the local name for the River Thames. In its long history, Isis magazine (its modern name) has been the springboard for successful careers across a wide spectrum of English life embracing literature, the theatre and television, with its specific influences in Private Eye and Westminster politics. The following brief list alone reveals five members of parliament, among them two party leaders. By contrast the rival undergraduate newspaper Cherwell seems to function conspicuously as the more specialised training ground for Fleet Street. Isis alumni include Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh, Harold Acton, Graham Greene, John Betjeman, Michael Foot, Jo Grimond, Sylvia Plath, Dennis Potter, Adrian Mitchell, Robert Robinson (the BBC broadcaster), Richard Ingrams, David Dimbleby, Paul Foot, Peter Gillman, Edward Mortimer (of the UN), Christopher Meakin, Gyles Brandreth, Terry Jones, George Osborne, Nigella Lawson, Jo Johnson and Ben Goldacre. The current editors are Fintan Calpin and Christian Hill. (en)
