The early modern period in Europe saw a series of changes to the picture of the globe—both to its surface, with the "discoveries" of New World exploration, and to its place in the universe, with the period's astronomical revelations. These discoveries, along with the crisis of interiority that led to and was fueled by the Protestant Reformation, unsettled older epistemological assumptions and prompted new inquiries into the locus of meaning in the world.

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 ».
