IAHIS 2460 History of Animation

In just over 110 years of existence, animation has gone from a curiosity to an integral part of the art and business of worldwide film-making and culture. Through screenings of independent and studio shorts, in-class note-taking and critical discussion, a midterm essay and a final research paper, you will explore important and innovative cartoon films well-known and obscure, American and foreign, made-for-television or for movie theaters, made by hand and/or with computer, and by groups or individuals.
