Figurative Meaning and Metamorphosis in Animation (fmm-animation) aims to spark discussions, build collaborations and support exploratory events on the proposed topics. The SIG encourages interdisciplinary work and subjects of interest could be, but are not limited to:
- Any traditions that deal with metaphor within animation (e.g. film and media studies, cognitive science and hermeneutics).
- Any perspectives on the notion of metamorphosis and plasticity in animation.
- Any traditions that deal with symbolism in animation.
- Any forms of figurative meaning in animation (e.g. relating to its narrative, aesthetic and sound).
Studies of linguistic tropes implemented in animation.
