This volume reflects the growing interest in animation as a medium. Cartoons, including those dating from the classic Hollywood era as well as feature films and television series of a more contemporary vintage, offer a rich field for detailed investigation and analysis. Contributors draw on theories and methodology from film, television, and media studies, art history and criticism, and feminism and gender studies. The book also discusses issue, of the definition of animation raised by recent developments in the use of computer technology.
