Research into Race, Sexuality and Gender in Animation

Over the past few days leading up to the presentation this week, I’ve dug deep into the internet to find articles based around each of topics – race, sexuality and gender in animation through out history! Here are some pretty cool and interesting articles I found myself taking note’s on.

And some video’s too which were fun to watch yet educational!

Reading through all this was so interesting! I’m pretty excited to get with the group and share notes, thoughts¬†¬†and get this presentation rolling!
