Dartmouth College

This is a reminder call for a panel proposal for the Illustration, Comics, and Animation Conference to be held at Dartmouth College, April 19 – 21 2013. (find general conference CFP below)

While most animation historians look for the origins of animation in lanterna magicae, shadow theatre and vaudeville, among others, one major influence seems to be often overlooked : caricature, or « print cartoon ».

By exploring the conditions of emergence of animation and especially the artistic backgrounds of its pioneers, this panel seeks to discover the roots of animation aesthetics in caricature and comic strips, also known at the turn of the century as « print cartoons ».
