Product description


Featuring an impressive array of important topics by leading figures in the field of animation studies, this book provides an excellent resource for introductory or advance study. It is a much-needed resource for courses, reflecting the ubiquity of animated imagery in its wide ranging forms and contexts. (Maureen Furniss, Director, Experimental Animation, California Institute of the Arts, USA)

The essays in this volume expose to scrutiny a wide range of questions essential to our comprehensive understanding of the phenomenon and process of animation, as well as its role not only in contemporary cinema but in the widest cultural and social contexts. Editors Nichola Dobson, Annabelle Honess Roe, Amy Ratelle and Caroline Ruddell, through twenty-two carefully selected texts, provide complex and exhaustive research of the field of animation. The carefully-structured Reader argues that animation is a far reaching and multi-layered phenomenon that both demands and deserves a carefully proposed and mapped out multiperspective approach. The theoretical platform and analytical optique are presented in a systematic, detailed and didactic way, making this collection of texts accessible for the widest reading audience. (Dr. Nevena Dakovic, Faculty of Dramatic Arts, University of Arts, Belgrade, Serbia)

The Animation Studies Reader is a formidable compilation of outstanding contributions to the body of scholarship in modern animation studies. Well organized into three main thematic sections, it presents a veritable "who is who" of the most eminent scholars in the field. It covers a wide range of topics that reflect the main areas of academic significance and contemporary relevance. As such, the tome is an indispensable treasure trove for animation theorists, students and academically inclined practitioners alike. Highly recommended. (Hannes Rall, Associate Professor, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore)
