FTVM faculty Mihaela Mihailova recently published an editorial entitled "Contagion Animation as Contagious Animation" in the blog section of Fantasy/Animation.
Fantasy/Animation examines the relationship between fantasy cinema and the medium of animation. The website provides a space for discussion and debate among like-minded academics, practitioners, special interest groups and fans of fantasy and/or animation.
In her post, Mihailova explores our "extensive reliance on animation by news outlets and health organizations aiming to spread accurate, succinct information about Covid-19 to the general public as quickly and efficiently as possible" and discusses how "animation remains an invaluable tool for conceptualizing an ongoing global crisis caused by an unseen threat and exacerbated by lack of reliable data and a general sense of confusion."
