CALL FOR PAPERS: CARICATURE: A LOST ORIGIN OF ANIMATION

updated: 
Friday, July 13, 2012 - 4:04am
Dartmouth College

This call is for a panel proposal for the Illustration, Comics, and Animation Conference to be held at Dartmouth College, April 19 – 21 2013.

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 ».

Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness

Sunday 10th March – Tuesday 12th March 2013
Lisbon, Portugal

Call For Presentations:
This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to examine and explore issues surrounding evil and human wickedness. In wrestling with evil(s) we are confronted with a multi-layered phenomenon which invites people from all disciplines, professions and vocations to come together in dialogue and wrestle with questions that cross the boundaries of the intellectual, the emotional and the personal. Underlying these efforts there is the sense that in grappling with evil we are in fact grappling with questions and issues of our own humanity.

[UPDATE] "Lost in Transnationalism: Reflections on Multiculturalism and Globalization" October 26th, 2012

updated: 
Thursday, July 12, 2012 - 4:31pm
Claremont Graduate University, California

Transnationalism, the heightened interconnection between people and cultures, is a burgeoning social phenomenon. In our age of increasing globalization, the mixing and shifting of identities has become pervasive. Through global interconnectivity and the interdependence of economic, media, and social factors, boundaries among nation-states have become less distinct, leading to a formation of hybrid cultures. From neoliberal practices to telecommunication, the shape and dissemination of transnationalism has diffused.
