ANIMATION IS A PLACE – 31st Conference of the Society for Animation Studies, Lissabon – 17.- 21. Juni 2019


We invited practitioners and scholars to address animation as a privileged space within the realm of the moving image, a unique position that allows animators to not only create imaginary worlds but also, importantly, to look at and challenge the world we live in.

Using Lisbon’s Atlantic position and its historical place between Europe, the Americas, North Africa and the routes to the East, as an opportunity to further enhance the cultural reach of the SAS, we want to discuss animation in a contemporary context.

In an age of contrasting globalization and the rise of separatist ideologies, we encouraged potential delegates to celebrate animation’s transdisciplinary nature by focussing on its cultural diversities and issues of local distinctiveness, with geography and location as an underpinning general theme.
