Animation Research Network Scotland are pleased to announce the programme for our upcoming ‘Small Nations’ Symposium, 4th & 5th November, a two-day hybrid conference which intends to consider how nations and nationhood might influence or affect animation production and content.
We kick-off the event by welcoming our opening keynote speaker Dr Yvonne Hennessy, who will be drawing on her twenty years of practical and research expertise in the field, discussing Global Success in a National Mess: Ireland’s Animation Industry.
This will be followed by two days of in-person and online addresses, paper and panel discussions, and for those who will be joining us in-person at Edinburgh College of Art, a curated film screening.
As our closing keynote address, award winning director and animation researcher Dr Pedro Serrazina will present a fascinating look into Vanishing Landscapes: sociocultural traces in Portuguese animation.
We welcome researchers, scholars, students, and practitioners alike to join us in questioning, discussing, and celebrating this complex and diverse area of animation research.
