animation: an interdisciplinary journal provides the first cohesive international peer-reviewed 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 16th century optical devices to contemporary digital media - revealing its implications on other forms of time-based media expression past, present and future.

animation: an interdisciplinary journal is essential and stimulating reading for academics, researchers, students, curators and practitioners in animation, film and media studies, cultural studies, critical theory, architecture, art & design, computer sciences, games studies and visual culture.

"animation: an interdisciplinary journal promises not only an interdisciplinary and international scope, but also - and most significant at this historical moment - to re-mediate and inter-mediate a range of moving image platforms and to re-think the premises that have thus far found it proper to separate the 'mashed potatoes' of film theory from the 'peas' of animation theory and the 'carrots' of digital media theory. Indeed, animation: an interdisciplinary journal promises to provide us an exceedingly full and intellectually satisfying plate." Vivian Sobchack, Professor of Film, Television and Digital Media, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
