This book is a collaborative effort to highlight the need and the enormous concern that exists in researching and reflecting on animation as a cultural and social phenomenon. The authors reveal different perspectives –both theoretical and geographical– around one of the most intriguing aspects for humanity: the power to give life to things, anthropologically speaking, summarized in the concept of the anima .
In a review that sometimes borders on the political, on others the academic and historical, and on others the technological, it is possible to compile a corpus of ways of thinking, approaches and perspectives around animation in different techniques, formats and scenarios. This allows opening the spectrum in the sense of seeing animation as a form of knowledge. The reader will have the luxury of moving away from the strict mechanistic sense that is sometimes assigned to the process of animating.
