Hollywood actress-filmmaker Angelina Jolie is set to take up a teaching position at the Georgetown University in the US. This stint will be similar to her visiting professor role at the London School of Economics, reported Us magazine.
Angelina Jolie — Academy Award winner, United Nations Special Envoy and, yes, university professor. After taking on the real life role of visiting professor at the London School of Economics, Jolie will be doing “the same guest spot” at LSE’s sister school, Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
It was previously announced that the actress and human rights campaigner has joined the London School of Economics as a visiting professor and now it is reported that she “will do the same guest spot at LSE’s sister school, Georgetown”.
No details about her position at the US institution have been revealed but Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security Ambassador Melanne Verveer held talks with the 41-year-old actress in May.
“I was pleased to meet with Angelina Jolie during my recent trip to London on ways we at Georgetown University can continue the collaboration between our sister programmes on both sides of the Atlantic,” Verveer said in a statement.
We look forward to welcoming Angelina and former foreign secretary Hague to Georgetown in the future. At LSE, Jolie will give a series of lectures to students of the new one-year MSc course on women, peace and security, which will run from the beginning of the 2017 academic year.
