My academic life began with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Art History & Film. The course concentrated on the historical, cultural and critical study of Art and Film. Modules included Art in Theory, Avant-Garde Art, Art and Aesthetics, Interwar Art, Romanticism, Film and History, British Cinema and the Second World War, French New Wave, Italian Neorealism and German Expressionism. I graduated with an Upper Second Class.
I have also achieved a Master of Arts in English Literature. This course specialised in the historical, cultural and critical study of English Literature. Modules included Shakespeare, Translating the Medieval, Victorian Voices, Modernism, Space, Place and Text. I graduated with a Merit.
Further study included a Master of Arts in Magazine Journalism - together with newspaper and magazine journalism awards from the National Council for the Training of Journalists. The course included Law and Politics and was accredited by the Professional Publishers Association, Periodicals Training Council and the NCTJ. I graduated with a Merit.
Since 2017 I have been undertaking part-time research for a Doctor of Philosophy in English Literature. Further to my thesis, my independent research and writing interests extend out to the Victorian period, the Edwardian era, the Interwar years, and the symbiotic relationship between Literature, Film and Art.
