The 22nd Annual Society for Animation Studies Conference

Animating Iran: History, identity and the socially-motivated animation

Preconstituted panel

The panel is a collective attempt at presenting a range of topics within Iranian animation discourses in relation to its not-very-long history. Focusing on sociopolitical questions regarding Iranian identity, history and social changes and problems, the panel offers a diversity of approaches and aspects of what maybe called socially oriented/motivated animation in Iran.
