Representation,stereotyping, ‘race’ and multiculturalism in film, television and other audio-visual forms have been subjected to numerous studies in Britain and the United States. However there hasn't been a concerted effort, and a systematic study,that addresses those issues within the framework of televised animation in Britain. Furthermore there are no animation-inspired studies involving practical dimensions that [currently] exist to facilitate such discourse. This work examines the characterization of blacks in contemporary British-made animated films. It explores racial stereotyping and locates significant absences. The study involves two components: theory and practice. The first element seeks to investigate issues relating to representation, stereotyping, ‘race’ and British multiculturalism. Using case studies the work posits that Britain’s multiculturality has not been adequately represented in popular modes of television animation. The second component involves the production of a 'claymation' film designed to demonstrate how it is possible to counter some of the gaps and problems embedded in black representation in the media, but especially animation.About the Author:
