This winter, Piotr Westwalewicz, Herb Eagle, Misha Krutikov, Jindra Toman, and I will co-teach a new mini-course on Slavic animation. Animation is one of the best examples of what the magic of cinema can accomplish and it is an excellent communicator of different concepts to a broad audience. While watching animated film, we tend to focus less on the look, attire, and race of its characters and more on the message delivered. This course will introduce students to Serbian, Czech, Polish, Russian, and Ukrainian animated films of different genres and periods. We look forward to teaching this new course and introducing U-M students to the world of Slavic animation.
