Social History of Animation will investigate the history of animation from early experiments with trick film through the development of major studios, to independent and web based work. Animation will be analyzed and discussed in relation to the social movements and technological innovations that effected animators and their work. This class will read related texts and view examples from around the world to explore animation as a means for personal expression and as a reflection of the context in which they were made.
