Join USD senior Karissa Valencia as she shares her thesis research on animation's early development as a children's media genre. Focusing on top American distributors Walt Disney, Hannah-Barbera and Fleischer Bros, Valencia will explore their use of animation from its first exhibition in the 1930s through the transition to television in the 1960s. Valencia will provide a comprehensive look at film history, television, and childhood, question the stigma of mediocrity in the animation medium, and explore the changing meaning of childhood and family.
For ages 55 and up.
