Who created this course
Our actors
Charlie Swanson
Why are lectures delivered by actors?

More often than not, specialists who are over the moon when writing their papers and doing their research do not feel enthusiastic about delivering their ideas and texts in front of a camera. This understanding influenced our decision to invite actors who feel comfortable and confident when being filmed. The expertise of our authors ensures high-quality content, whereas the professionalism of our actors buoys up its appeal to the audience.
Authors
This specialist has created the text and notes of the lectures by using recent scientific literature.
Editor
Nelli Kundryukova
Art historian, PhD student in art history
The editor has made the text of the lecture more coherent, structured, and easy to follow.
English editor
This person proofreads the translation and makes sure the definitions used in the lecture are accurate.
Alex Vanbroke
Translators
We are sure that education should have no frontiers. This accounts for our decision to translate our lectures into different languages. Thus, you can learn what you are interested in no matter where you are.
