This conference aims to reach further into understandings of what experimental animation is and has been since Robert Russett and Cecile Starr defined this territory in 1976. Of the subsequent multiple investigations since, few have claimed to research experimental animation specifically as Hamlyn and Smith have sought to do in their volume: Experimental and Expanded Animation: Current Perspectives & New Directions, the recent publication of which has catalysed this research day. This event aims to further focus our project and to develop findings from the publication through more immediate methods of open dialogue and/or film practice.
