More Student Success!


The department is really pleased to hear that Amanda Curdt-Christiansen, who recently graduated in the summer of 2018, has been recognised at the Global Undergraduate Awards. Amanda received the award of “Highly Commended” in the Music, Film & Theatre category for an essay she wrote in her final semester for the Asian Cinemas module, entitled ‘Hybridity in Singaporean Cinema: Othering the Self through Diaspora and Language Policies in Ilo Ilo and Letters from the South‘.

Amanda’s essay has already been recognised by the University, as she won the 2017/18 Anita Loos Award, which is awarded by the Film Studies department for the most outstanding undergraduate essay. We all wish Amanda well as she next undertakes a Masters in Film and Media Studies at the University of Copenhagen.
