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.
