Early in May this year, a spokesperson for the London School of Economics announced that Jolie will be one of their visiting professors in 2017. She was invited by the school to give a lecture on a new master’s degree program that focuses on women, peace, and security.
The actress is expected to tackle subjects about gender equality, women’s economics, and social and political participation and security. She is also expected to participate in public events and workshops as well as help with research projects that have something to do with the program.
Prior to her announcement, Jolie hugged the headlines for accusing husband Brad Pitt for child violence after apparently hitting their eldest child, Maddox while aboard their private plane.
Sources, however, said that Pitt did not get physical but simply touched him on the shoulder area. Pitt is currently under investigation by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.
