My academic and teaching career commenced once I had graduated from the Department of Education, University of Oxford.
Since then I have been pleased to continue the connection. I have, for example, acted as Country Champion for the Department while Professor of Film in South Africa.
Of late, I am a member of the Oxford University Society in Berlin and serve on its Committee as Academic Outreach Officer. Amongst our varied alumni events is the Oxford-Berlin Seminar series at the Centre of British Studies, Berlin.
For my sins I was also responsible for the launch of the OUS- Berlin alumni Twitter account that connects with individuals, societies, departments and activities.
