The Language Acts and Worldmaking team have received four King’s Curriculum Innovation Awards to develop new interdisciplinary and service modules for undergraduate students. These modules draw on our research and partnerships to propose new approaches to interdisciplinary study, engage with current research emerging from the Language Acts and Worldmaking project and empower undergraduate students as active learners and researchers. The modules also involve assessment methods which allow students to develop critical and creative responses to the materials that they encounter.
The new modules are:
- Art and Activism in the Digital Age – a collaboration between Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies and Digital Humanities led by Dr Sophie Stevens and Dr Renata Brandao
- Gender Action Charter Mark – a collaboration between the Modern Language Centre and Physics led by Dr Ana de Medeiros and Prof Peter Main (for further information on Gender Action see their )
- Language Acts and Worldmaking Laboratories – a collaboration within Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies led by Prof Catherine Boyle and Dr Elisa Sampson Vera Tudela
- Intercultural and Language Awareness and Intergenerational Communication - a collaboration between the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and the Modern Language Centre led by Dr Patricia Zunszain, Dr Gisele Dias and Dr Donata Puntil
This is part of a larger initiative at King’s to
enable a more flexible and open structure to aspects of degree programmes.
You can keep up to date with how the new modules develop:
- We will be running a series of events and workshops to explore and trial aspects of these new modules. Details of these events and how you can be involved will be shared on our page.
- Our team will also be about the process of developing the new modules.
- Some of our team will be at the Association of Hispanists of Great Britain and Ireland annual conference at Durham University, 8th-10th April and will be sharing our work on innovating the curriculum at our panel: Language Acts and Worldmaking: The Challenges of Transforming Teaching and Research. Please to ask us any questions and join the conversation.
