Birmingham City University is set to host an Animation Explosion one-day conference, on 14th September 2011 in Birmingham. The event is sponsored by the UK’s Society for Animation Studies and is now inviting papers. There seem to be two broad areas of interest: approaches to the analysis of animation, especially in its new and hybrid forms; and explorations of the expanding breadth of animation practices and communities. No mention of machinima, but I’m sure it’ll be welcome as a proposal topic for a paper.
