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 History of Art, Art Since 1945, Art and Aesthetics, Interwar Art, Understanding Film, Film and History, Film and Society and Film, Femininity and the Female Experience. I graduated with an Upper Second Class.
I have also achieved a Master of Arts in English Literature & Film. This course specialised in the historical, cultural and critical study of English Literature and Film. Modules included Shakespeare, Translating the Medieval, Nineteenth-Century Voices, Modernism, Space, Place and Text, British Cinema and the Second World War, French New Wave, Italian Neorealism and German Expressionism. 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 research for a Doctor of Philosophy in English Literature. Further to my area of study, my research and writing interests extend out to the Victorian era, the Interwar years, the Bloomsbury period and the endlessly fascinating - and symbiotic - relationship between literature, film and art.
