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. Bailed out by Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Nigella Lawson at various points in its history, ISIS has survived against all odds.
We have been banned in Germany, threatened by blackmail, and mocked by Punch Magazine. Along the way our reporters have been prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act, hosted by Wikileaks, and forced to walk out over threats of editorial censorship during ISIS’ radical left-wing heyday.
On this journey, our ranks have included the likes of Evelyn Waugh, Sylvia Plath, Boris Johnson, Terry Jones, Graham Greene, David Dimbleby, Michael Foot, Richard Ingrams, George Osborne, Chris Huhne, Hilaire Belloc, and of course Mostyn Turtle Piggott, our delightfully eccentric founder.
Now, we run events, a website 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 journalism and design, carefully assembled by the ISIS team.
The current editors are Rebecca Choong Wilkins and Philip Bell. If you’re interested in becoming a member of the Isis staff, joining our mailing list or pitching articles or visuals, or anything else, get in contact with us at email@example.com.
