"The Isis is the longest-running independent student magazine in the UK. It has been through a lot since being established at Oxford University in 1892. We have been banned in Germany, threatened by blackmail, and mocked by Punch Magazine; our reporters have been prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act, hosted by Wikileaks, and forced to walk out over threats of editorial censorship during The Isis’s radical left-wing heyday. On this journey, our ranks have included the likes of Evelyn Waugh, Sylvia Plath, Terry Jones, Graham Greene, Michael Foot, Richard Ingrams, Hilaire Belloc, and of course Mostyn Turtle Piggott, our delightfully eccentric founder. Now, we run events, a website packed with regularly updated content, and once a term our print issue finds its way into Oxford accompanied by a digital version exclusively posted on our website. There you’ll find the best of student writing and design, carefully assembled by the Isis editorial team."
