Catz lawyers soar to success

Early this year, Catz alum Lisa Roberts QC (1988, English) was appointed Attorney General of the Northern Circuit, making history as the first female Attorney General in the Circuit’s 800 year history. According to Circuit Leader Michael Hayton QC, Lisa was “the stand out candidate for the role.”

Spotlight On: Wearing the Trousers, by Don Chapman

Alumnus Don Chapman (1952, English) published his latest book in September: Wearing the Trousers: Fashion, Freedom and the Rise of the Modern Woman (Amberley Publishing, Stroud). Don’s interest in the campaign for women’s trousers dates from the hot-pant craze of 1971 when a reader came to him with his grandfather’s papers relating to the Western Rational Dress Club. Exploiting his knowledge of the newspaper industry and his long experience as an investigative reporter, he has pieced together the first comprehensive history of what became known as the Rational Dress Movement.

Fellows’ Publications

Goldoni in Paris: La Gloire et le Malentendu (Oxford University Press, 2017) by Jessica Goodman, Fellow and Associate Professor in French. This book examines the thirty years that the Italian dramatist, Carlo Goldoni, spent living and working in France. He describes this period as the peak of his authorial career, yet critics have tended to view it as a failure, or forget about it entirely. This study tries to work out why.

Sleeping Rough

Sleeping Rough is a docudrama film about UK street homelessness that has directly involved two Catz alumni, and many other college alumni who have generously donated towards the film's production through a successful Kickstarter campaign.
