L116 Fall 2019 The History of Animation
Wednesdays, 2:15–3:40, Sept. 25–Nov. 13
Instructor: Josh Pachter
There’s a lot more to cartoons than Walt Disney—and a lot more to animation than cartoons! In this class, Josh Pachter will guide you through the history of animated film from its beginnings in 1906 all the way up to today, with stops in Russia, Czechoslovakia, Germany, Canada, Japan, and more. (And, yes, we’ll certainly spend some of our time on Uncle Walt!)
Josh Pachter teaches communication studies and film appreciation at Northern Virginia Community College-Loudoun. His BA and MA from the University of Michigan were in speech communication with an emphasis on film study.
