Guest Curator for Society for Animation Studies on Animationstudies2.0

During February and March I guest curated and co-editing a call for the Society for Animation Studies. My writing on my video practice, drawing on my video home is where the heart is, is included in the collection. The introduction below is from the School of Communication at Royal College of Art, April newsletter.

Nicky Hamlyn, PGR Tutor in the School, features in a new collection of writings for animationstudies 2.0, the blog of the Society of Animation Studies. Guest curated by RCA PhD candidate Karen Bosy, contributors also include RCA alumna Sharon Young and current RCA students Despina Papadopoulos and Karen Bosy. The Society for Animation Studies promotes academic writing in the field. The theme for this call, Implying the Surface in Animation, presents the spatial environment as grounded, without representing it as ‘the ground’ in films, animations, or other works using animation strategies or technologies. The contributions were published weekly throughout February and March: Table of Contents HERE

Karen Bosy@kmbosy home is where the heart is, digital video still, 2023.

Many thanks to Animationstudies2.0 co-editors Carmen Hannibal and Anastasiia Gushchina for inviting me to guest curate a call and for the skilful support and copy editing.
