Winter School at the Graduate Academy and the Centre for Animation Studies of the Eberhard Karls University of Tuebingen, Germany
March 25 to March 27, 2019, Ernst von Sieglin Lecture Hall, Hohentuebingen Castle, Tuebingen
How can we write the history/histories of a field as heterogeneous and often marginalized as animation? At the winter school, we will discuss methods of researching especially those aspects of animation history that are overlooked, hard to trace, and non-canonical. By promoting an interdisciplinary network of young scholars and established researchers of animation studies, film studies, media studies, art history, and other related fields as well as film archivists, film educators, and film festival organisers, we aim at fostering innovative approaches to writing the history/histories of animation in a collaborative atmosphere.
With lectures by Franziska Bruckner, Suzanne Buchan, Edwin Carels, Malcolm Cook, Michael Cowan, Donald Crafton, Esther Leslie, and Alexandra Schneider.
Special highlight: A vaudeville performance of „Winsor and Gertie“
