change of plan

Originally I set out to discover how aesthetic can be defined or affected by context through the anthropomorphic depiction in cartoons, focussing on minorities (race, age, class, sexuality, and gender). Now however, I have decided to investigate the issues of representation in Animation: what they are, how they started and why. I want to find out how the juxtaposition of race, gender and sexuality of iconic cartoon characters in animated film, and the relative context and issues surrounding it. 

Now as my practical outcome I will focus on depicting one minority when it comes to issue of representation.
