Animation Cinema: A Performative History, 7.5 ECTS

Animerad film: En performativ historia, 7,5 hp

Based on research in performance studies, the course offers an extensive analysis of the animated film’s history from its technological innovation in the early 20th century, its establishment primarily identified with Walt Disney in the 1930s to national animated film after World War II and ending with a discussion about Japanese animation. During the majority of the 20th century movie shows, animated films at best played a secondary role. In recent years, researchers and historians have begun to draw attention to how this form of production evolved within and beyond Hollywood’s business sphere.
