        Subject: Literary Lab Pamphlet 14

“Broken Time, Continued Evolution: Anachronies in Contemporary Films”
Maria Kanatova, Alexandra Milyakina, Tatyana Pilipovec, Artjom Shelya, Oleg Sobchuk, Peeter Tinits

Up to now, all our Pamphlets (https://litlab.stanford.edu/pamphlets/) have included at least one author who was formally affiliated with Stanford, as a student or teacher. Pamphlet 14 is different in this respect, as the entire group is composed of graduate students from the legendary Tartu University in Estonia. One of them, however – Oleg Sobchuk – spent six months at the Literary Lab, becoming so profoundly integrated in our research and discussion, that publishing this essay feels like the most natural thing in the world.

After the economic ideology of “Bankspeak”, and the cultural geography of “The Emotions of London”, “Broken Time” is the Literary Lab's first venture into film studies, to be followed in the Fall by a pamphlet on art history: a series of investigations which we hope will contribute to establish a common conceptual ground among the different branches of quantitative cultural history.
