Deputy Editor, The Oxford Student

Location icon United Kingdom

I'm Nat, a second year History student at the University of Oxford. I've spent much of time outside of studying for my degree involved in student journalism. I am currently Deputy Editor at The Oxford Student, having previously served as Screen and Comment Editor. This means I play a central role in managing an organisation of dozens of writers, with physical circulation of around 15,000 and a website which receives 100,000 hits a month. Apart from commissioning, editing and formatting several articles for weekly publication, I have also written several of my own pieces, ranging from features on pioneering female professors at Oxford to film reviews and articles on US politics. I'm now eager to get some more experience, and would love to explore the world of journalism further.

Cold War 2.0

By Nat Rachman There is a new Cold War brewing. Its parameters are different, its urgency, for now, less pressing, but its emergence remains unmistakable. In his 1992 State of the Union speech, George H W Bush heralded his country in the face of the Soviet Union's collapse, as 'the undisputed leader of its age'.
