The Society for

Animation Studies Conference 2018

June 18-22, 2018
Montréal, Canada
Hosted by Concordia University

Animation has always been a critical component of rethinking the stability and politics of the moving image and recorded sound. How might it unpredict or undo the future, critically deform the past, and reinvent the present? This conference seeks interrogations into the temporalities of animation, the past/present/future of animation practices, the spatial locations of its creation and study, and the orientations of animation theory and practice. How can we reinfect our discipline with new narratives about the past, for the present, and into the future? How can these narratives reverberate outside animation studies into the social, cultural, technological, and political spheres?

Wherefrom, Whereat & Whereto?

Our call for proposals went out in Fall 2017 and closed in January 2018.

Montreal and Concordia University enjoy intricate ties to animation and its study. Alongside paper presentations and pre-constituted panels, we welcomed proposals for roundtable discussions, artists’ talks, hands-on workshops, etc. A record number of highly competitive proposals went through a rigorous double blind selection process that promises a terrific conference program. We are proud to be continuing the tradition of excellence at SAS. Letters of invitation are being sent now.
