Animation: An Interdisciplinary Journal

Especially since the digital shift, animation is increasingly pervasive
and implemented in many ways in many disciplines. Animation: An
Interdisciplinary Journal provides the first cohesive international
refereed publishing platform for animation that unites contributions from
a wide range of research agendas and creative practice. The journal’s
scope is very comprehensive, yet its focus is clear and simple. The
journal addresses all animation made using all known (and yet to be
developed) techniques–from C16th optical devices to contemporary digital
media–revealing its implications on other forms of time-based media
expression past, present and future. Special features will include new
theories and methodologies, radical contemporary practice, microanalyses
of individual films, archive news, teaching, learning and research
resources and industrial innovations foregrounding specific disciplines
and their interrelations with others.

Topic coverage is wide-ranging and includes:
* Animation Aesthetics
* Computer Aided Design
* The Architectural Imagination of Animation
* Computer Game Aesthetics and Play Theory
* Advertising, Commerce and Mobile Telephony
* Documentary Animation
* Feminist Approaches to Animation
* Disasporas, Ethnicity and Representation
* The Animated Body
* Comics and Animation, Manga and Anime
* Animation in Sci-Tech and Medicine
* Animation in Fine Arts Practice
* Queer Animation Studies
* Phenomenological Approaches to Animation
* Animated Photography
* Flash, Machinima and On-Line Communities
* Music, Sound and Voice
* Animated ‘Worlds’ of Poetry and Literature
* Pre- and Post-Digital Hybridisation
