ARH 340 - History of Animation and Experimental Film

Credits 3
Lecture / 3 hours per week
History of animation and experimental film. Through weekly screenings (and 3 of 4 required evening events), students study poetic, surrealist, structuralist and groundbreaking film (from Vertov to Michael Snow) and animation (from early Mickey Mouse to the Quay Brothers claymations to contemporary computer generated imagery). Students investigate the intersections between race, gender, technology, politics, commercialism and personal expression.
