Fascicle 7: Slavonic Studies

Slavonic Studies 2021

Theme: Slavonic Studies – History and Perspectives

The Editorial Board of Roczniki Humanistyczne (Annals of Arts / Annales de Lettres et Sciences Humaines), fascicle 7 Slavonic Studies, is seeking contributions of high academic quality in English for the forthcoming volume 69 (2021): Slavonic Studies – History and Perspectives. We accept only unpublished research papers of high scientific quality.

In the present era of the deep structural reorganisation of science and higher education in various regions of the globe which greatly affects the humanities, philological research is conducted within clearly defined disciplines focusing on narrowly defined tasks. These circumstances make one reflect on Slavic Studies, its history and the new challenges it is facing. We would like to address these issues in the forthcoming issue of our journal, fascicle 7: Slavonic Studies, seeking answers to the following questions.

The first question concerns the significance of the classical reflection on Slavic literatures, cultures, and languages. It would seem that it played an enormous role in the process of shaping the identity of those nations included in that conventional construct known as “Eastern Slavdom”. This aspect is of particular importance in the East-Central European context, where ideas of Slavic unity were propagated at various turning points in its history. One such turning point is the period of recent political transformation, which triggered a dramatic development in Slavic studies. Other questions concern the varied factors (historical, cultural, (geo)political, national, etc.) conditioning the field of Slavic research – Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian Studies – in different parts of the world. What achievements in this field can be considered to be of particular importance and/or worth continuing, and what avenues of reflection have not yet been pursued? We would also like to ask about the future of Slavic Studies, given the present environment in which its history is being written.
