Slate's history blog The Vault: Historical Treasures, Oddities, and Delights," featured the work of Joan Neuberger, Professor of History and Editor of Not Even Past, in which she wrote about Wladislaw Starewicz’s rare, early stop-motion animation films. Read the article at "Early Stop-Motion Animation, Starring Dead Bugs, Is Meticulous, Hilarious."

The Vault recently featured two other pieces by Joan Neuberger, one about canonical Soviet film director Sergei Eisenstein and his beloved books (see "Scoping Sergei Eisenstein's Bookshelves"), and another entitled "This 1922 Kodachrome Test Footage is Strangely Bewitching." The latter was adapted from an earlier NEP blog entry and it has received over 20,000 "likes."
