Health Issues and Animation

(DEADLINE 28th February 2014)

Following on from recent inquiries and discussion about animation which depicts mental health issues on the Society for Animation Studies list, this month’s theme invites posts on all aspects of health in animation. Topics may include but are not limited to:

– representations of health issues (mental or physical)
– the use of animation in social/governmental health campaigns
– the ‘normalisation’ of health issues in children’s animation
– animation as therapy

All of the above can cover fiction and documentary animation and physical and mental health – any aspect of these will be welcome.

Posts of between 300 and 500 words, which discuss any aspect of the above topic are welcome.  Contributors are encouraged to include clips and images to support their posts.  Please also include a short bio to accompany the post. All permissions are the responsibility of the contributor. Please contact the editor with submissions or questions.
