london the oliviers travel

Watch This Space!

Well, friends, the time has come: I’m leaving for London tomorrow to embark on a career as a professional student.  Just kidding, I’m going to graduate school for Film Studies at King’s College London!  I’m so excited for this new chapter in my life; I feel like it’s something I’ve wanted to do or talked about doing for years, but now it feels like it’s finally the right time!  The classes I’ll be taking sound really interesting:

  • Formations in Film Studies
  • Traditions in British Cinema
  • The Heritage Film
  • London Film Cultures
  • British Cinema in WWII
  • and I’m writing my dissertation on British cinema in the 1940s

I love research and learning, so I’m excited (albeit a little nervous) for school but I’m also excited to share my adventures with you!  I’ll be blogging here about anything to do with Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier!  I don’t anticipate having much time to update the main website, but if you’d like to follow along or keep in touch while I’m overseas, I’d recommend following this blog (see widget to the right —->) and also joining the Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier facebook page as it’s easier to post links there.  This blog will be the most updated portion of the site.

You can also find me at the following places:

Thanks for all your support of over the years, and I hope you stick around for new adventures 🙂
