Ethical Affairs Subcommittee

I’m Amy, the new JCR Ethical Affairs Officer and I’m looking for a environmental and ethical affairs subcommittee. If you’re passionate about saving the environment and helping others, or would just like to help organise charity events in college drop me a quick email at arh91@cam.ac.uk. Subcommittee roles would be fairly low-commitment but really fun and a great way to help make a difference in college!

The brilliant Niamh is reaching the end of her time on the JCR committee, so we are opening applications for a new JCR Computing Officer. Applications should be made by emailing president@sjcjcr.com indicating your interest in the role by Monday 30th January. There will then be a very informal interview process conducted by Niamh and myself in the week following this deadline, after which we will select the new Computing Officer.
What does the role include?
  • Become a member of the JCR Committee, and attend meetings where we make decisions on all aspects of college life. 
  • Help out at JCR run events such as welfare events, ents and freshers week.
  • Manage the JCR website and the committee email accounts.
  • Assist JCR committee members if they are working on projects which incorporate technology.
  • Provide a point of contact between students and the college IT department.
What skills are required?
  • A basic knowledge of HTML is required.

February is LGBT History
Month
and March is Women’s History Month. To celebrate diversity and
unity, historytothepublic.org
(HTTP) is inviting guest writers to present new research and ideas on either
theme (or both). The topics should have a historical link, but we welcome
articles from all disciplines. We are looking for new writers who have a
passion for sharing their research on any historical topic or era, with a wide
audience. If this is you, contact us at historytothepublic@gmail.com
by January 15 (LGBT themed posts) or February 15 (WHM).

 

HTTP is a
multidisciplinary public history project that focuses on sharing, learning, and
disseminating information using social media and other online platforms. We are
a group of undergraduate, postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers from
different universities across the world, with writers based in Cambridge,
London and China. We come from a variety of different backgrounds, and not all
of us are historians.
