In the spirit of ChLA 2016's theme of Animation, I was hoping to put together a panel on Animators as Authors/Auteurs. My own paper will focus on Don Bluth, but I'm interested in finding others working on key figures for discussing authorship, animation, and children's and youth media: Lotte Reiniger, Walt Disney, Ub Iwerks, the Nine Old Men, Mary Blair, Chuck Jones, Tex Avery, Ray Harryhausen, Rankin-Bass, Dianne Jackson, Hanna-Barbera, Floyd Norman, Glen Keane, Ralph Bakshi [more The Lord of the Rings than Fritz the Cat... :)], Hayao Miyazaki, Matt Groening, Sylvain Chomet, Gábor Csupó, Bruce W. Smith, Stephen Hillenburg, John Lasseter, Brad Bird, among others.

Send a brief email to pkunze@utexas.edu by 7/15.

The Children's Literature Association 2016 Conference, hosted by the Ohio State University, will be held June 11-13 at the Columbus Sheraton.
