This course traces the history of animation from the magic lantern shows of the late 19th century to current and emerging digital animation technologies. We will explore both animated shorts and feature films and examine commercial as well as independent production practices. We will also survey the most significant debates undertaken in the field of animation studies, including scholarship on animation and its relationship to the birth of mass culture, animation and modern art, animation and Classical Hollywood Cinema, and animation and cultural imperialism. Screenings will include films by Cohl, McCay, O’Brien, The Fleischers, Disney, Avery, Tashlin, Servais, Svankmajer, Tezuka, and Miyazaki.
