Abstract

This critical commentary accompanies the selection of publications listed above and is submitted for consideration for the award of PhD by Publication. The thesis of these publications – namely five chapters, one monograph and one journal article – taken together, illustrates how identity shapes - and is shaped by - both animated characters and their worlds. They also inform how the medium of animation, as a malleable, often confrontational and contested form, addresses representations of Self, Difference and Place. The question of belonging is examined, along with ideas of the physical space the character inhabits, and how these identities are shaped in a unique way through the medium of animation. The commentary will address the ‘problem’ of animation as an artificial construct, and the topic of this PhD will be placed in its critical context. The commentary will then demonstrate the originality of the body of work, making reference to editors’ feedback and academic reviews. The publications to which this commentary applies will be discussed in a chronological order as a coherent body of work that reveals similar themes and representations on the topic of identity and its representation in animation, across stop motion, 2D and CG mediums.
