Hanging on for Hope: Walt Disney's Animated Films and American Consciousness,I937-I959
MetadataShow full item record
This project began in spring 2006 as a part of my junior seminar. I first looked specifically at representations of gender in Disney's films of the 1950s, and later expanded it to include Disney's earlier animated films and how all these films contributed to the creation of a uniquely American consciousness. With this project I wanted to use my love of Disney movies to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of their appeal.
