ERC funds new study of animated film
20 August 2013
Dr Kristian Moen, Lecturer in Screen Studies, has been awarded a grant from the European Research Council for a study of the development of animated film.
Dr Moen’s project examines how changing notions of animated film emerged during the period of its consolidation, from the introduction of animated films in cinema programmes in the mid-1910s to the surge in interest in animation and the global prominence of Walt Disney studios in the 1930s.
The ERC Starting Grant of just over €0.5 million covers four years from January 2014.
