About us

Creative Modern Languages

Creative Modern Languages is a project funded by the British Academy and hosted at the Department of Modern Languages at Aberystwyth University in Wales, UK. Our aim is to re-evaluate research and assessment in Modern Languages through the medium of artistic practice.

This hub collects examples of good practice in artistic research and creative assessment in Modern Languages. Our aim is to inspire and encourage fellow researchers and students to rethink creative assessment and artistic practice in our field.
