New Sheaffer Award for Visual Communication Dissertation
Sheaffer are generously presenting a new graduation award for excellence in Visual Communication Dissertation. In recognition of scholarship, research and analysis, the first winner of this award is Rhiannon Powell, for her dissertation Curses, Towers and Perceptions: How is the theme of entrapment visually represented in Disney films. Rhiannon's writing compares early and modern films, exploring if and how representations have been linked to society.
"The representation of physical and mental entrapment has been achieved in Disney films through physical objects used for trickery, versus magical powers reflected by settings and emotions. The theme of entrapment has and will continue to be a significant aspect in Disney films, reflecting context and history."
Congratulations Rhiannon and a big thank you to Sheaffer for presenting this new award.
