Last week, the London School of Economics appointed four new visiting professors for their Centre for Women, Peace and Security program. One of those appointed was none other than screen legend/humanitarian Angelina Jolie! While this is a wonderful addition to LSE’s program and just one more thing Jolie can check off her already overflowing resume, we want to know when she will make it across the pond to Georgetown.
So 4E is here to give you the scoop! Could Jolie’s next teaching gig be on the Hilltop? In a statement to The Hoya, the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security emphasized their goal to collaborate with their sister program at LSE, which includes possibly bringing Jolie and Former UK Foreign Secretary William Hague – another of the center’s new professors – to Georgetown. In fact, GIWPS Executive Director Melanie Verveer reportedly met with Jolie during a recent trip to London.
Here is the institute’s full statement below:
The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security has enthusiastically supported the creation of the LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security. We are ‘ sister’ programs on either side of the Atlantic with complementary missions – to study and highlight the roles of women in peace and security worldwide. We have been collaborating and are in discussions about how to forge a deeper partnership, given our unique strengths and shared goals. We look forward to, at some point, welcoming Angelina Jolie to Georgetown, and to welcoming former UK Foreign Secretary Hague back to The hilltop. In 2014, the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security awarded Foreign Secretary Hague with the Hillary Rodham Clinton Award for Advancing Women in Peace and Security for his dedicated leadership to prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence in conflict.”
While LSE may have Angelina Jolie for now, 4E thought it would be fun to see who else would make an awesome visiting professor at Georgetown.
Michael Scott: MGMT-200 Managerial Communication
Kanye West: ECON-002 Econ Principles Macro
Beyonce: WRIT-015 Writing and Culture
Leslie Knope: GOVT-237 Education/Politics/Policymaking
In all seriousness, we hope Georgetown keeps collaborating to bring the best and brightest minds to campus. 4E is here to keep you up to speed!
