During these testing times it’s reassuring to hear about all of the hard work being done by the Churchill Community to both manage and inform about the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as other work and achievements that have taken place. Here’s what has been happening in the last few days.


Statistician Professor Sir David Spiegelhalter spoke about how your chronological age affects your chances of being seriously affected by Covid-19.

Economist Professor Diane Coyle commented on how the pandemic may weaken our fixation with gross domestic product.

Senior Research Fellow and Computer Scientist Professor Ross Anderson commented on cyber campaigns that are attempting to hack into the UK’s Covid-19 vaccine research.

Fellow and Director of Studies in Management Studies, Professor Daniel Ralph, commented on the importance of including crisis management in EMBA courses.


The video of Churchill, Empire and Race: Opening the Conversation, the first event in our year-long programme looking at Churchill’s words, views and actions relating to empire and race, is now available to watch.

Honorary Fellow, Professor Wole Soyinka, is publishing his first novel in almost 50 years. Chronicles of the Happiest People on Earth will be released later this year.

We will continue to keep you informed of all of the work being done by the Churchill College Community. If you have any news you would like to share, please get in touch by emailing comms.manager@chu.cam.ac.uk.
