December Theme (deadline November 28th 2014)
Guest curated by Alison Loader

Calling all genders!

This month we are seeking short entries (300-500 words) addressing the very broad (pun intended) topic of Gender and Animation.

We’re interested in posts that discuss:
representations of gender, identity and sexuality in animated media
divisions of labour and other issues in production culture (especially commercial animation and the game industry)
bringing feminist theory to the classroom

Rants and provocations inspired by lived experiences of the workplace, stereotyping in contemporary cartoons, or even defensive mansplaining are all welcome, along with summaries and extracts of more extensive research.

After a successful month of debate in August, a second month of Gender and Animation is planned for December. The deadline for December will be November 28, 2014.

Entries may or may not include embedded video clips and links to other pages, and if they run a little longer than 500 words, we’ll deal with it.

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.
