Cross Language Dynamics film projects now available

Applications were invited from students and recent graduates of the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester for the production of short films that connect to the research themes of the AHRC consortium ‘Cross- language dynamics: re-shaping community.’

The films were funded by the consortium’s Translingual Strand led from the Institute of Modern Languages Research at the School of Advanced Study, London.

The first batch of three film projects is now available to view online and include ‘Subversive diversity: Mexico-City’s hidden language‘ by Jan-Holger Hennies, ‘Spanglish y Más‘ by Matylda Wierietielny and ‘I am waiting for you‘ by Paloma Yáñez Serrano and Benjamin Llorens Rocamora.
