Slavia Meridionalis 24

 

Topic: SLAVS OF THE GLOBAL VILLAGE

Editors: Magdalena Bogusławska and Angelika Kosieradzka

The 24th volume of the journal Slavia Meridionalis will be devoted to the ways in which elements of traditional, indigenous, native Slavic cultures and ideas about Slavdom are being transposed into the globalized contemporary culture. The aesthetic, ludic and ecological fascinations with the material and symbolic heritage of the Slavs, as well as contemporary Slavophilism are spreading, consolidating their position as an important component of cultural transmission. A change in the registers in which Slavic themes and motifs circulate is also increasingly apparent. Institutionalized forms of exploring and processing Slavic (especially pre-historic) knowledge are giving way to grassroots activities, becoming fodder for art, pop culture and also an inspiration for egalitarian areas of social activity, as well as various associations, subcultures, fan communities, etc.

Imaginary, uncanny, mythical, phantasmal, ghostly, recovered.... all these terms by which Slavdom is sometimes labeled today show the impossibility of giving this phenomenon a decisive defining contour. They also express the need to indicate the place that Slavicness occupies in global networks of identification. Despite its indefiniteness, or perhaps because of it, Slavdom does not cease to be an inspiration in many spheres of social activity. It is being revived in more and more new guises, seeking anchorage in various currently popular cultural texts, social practices, as well as in the ideas, ideologies and discourses that form their background. All this makes the subject matter once again a tempting research challenge for historians, folklorists, ethnographers, cultural scientists, religious scholars, Slavists…

The aim of our proposal is an attempt at critical reflection on the logic, causes and directions of updating the categories of Slavdom and Slavicness. We also pose the question about the ideological conditions of their transfer to the circulation of global culture and the impact of postmodern dynamics and knowledge processing technologies on the way these contents are reactualized. The planned volume is also intended to provide an opportunity to recall the historical phenomena that mark the tradition of interest in Slavdom, Slavs and Slavicness.

We propose the authors think about the following sub-issues:

  • Slavic heritage in identity discourses and practices;
  • Museum and reconstruction initiatives, festivals of Slavic culture;
  • Slavic ideas in political concepts and discourses;
  • Slavic spirituality in new contexts, vitality of Slavic beliefs, parareligious movements, native beliefs, Rodnovery;
  • “fantastic Slavdom” in literature, films, computer games, comic books and others;
  • indigenous Slavic traditions in environmental projects;
  • Slavic traditions as inspiration in visual arts and music;
  • (ancient) Slavic history in conspiracy theories;
  • Proto-Slavic heritage in modern language;
  • Inter-Slavic language – ideas and applications.

We also remain open to other theme-related proposals.

We will also consider publishing papers in English outside the main topic – in the “Imponderabilia” section, intended for contributions addressing particularly important issues within the thematic scope of the journal.

Slavia Meridionalis is a multidisciplinary Open Access journal presenting research on the South Slavic countries and their connections with other cultural regions. It is indexed in Scopus (Elsevier) and Emerging Sources Citation Index (Clarivate Analytics), as well as CEEOL, DOAJ, EBSCO, ERIH Plus, Google Scholar, and other databases.

Slavia Meridionalis 23

 

Topic: COMPARATIVE AND TYPOLOGICAL APPROACHES TO SLAVIC LANGUAGES 

The 23rd volume of the journal Slavia Meridionalis will be devoted to various problems of comparative and typological approaches to Slavic languages.

We welcome contributions in all subdisciplines of linguistics whose goal is to understand and explain patterns of variation within the family of Slavic languages from a comparative or micro-typological perspective. We are particularly interested in comparative research related to the syntax and semantics of word classes (nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions), as well as functional and semantic categories (tense, aspect, mood, voice, definiteness, negation, case, gender, number, etc.). Papers reporting research based on novel data from at least two Slavic languages or one Slavic and one non-Slavic language are preferred, especially comparisons with South Slavic languages.

Our intention is to bring together submissions from Slavic linguists from eastern and western linguistic traditions to facilitate a valuable academic discussion between scholars whose interest is in Slavic linguistics but who belong to different schools of thought or whose research has been published in languages other than English and hence received less international recognition than deserved. For this reason, we invite submissions in English and all Slavic languages (provided that the latter will be submitted by the Author in the English version after the reviewing process).

We are open to research applying experimental and corpus methods. In addition to theoretical contributions, we also invite papers which are original at the descriptive level, presenting new comparative data and observations without any formal analysis.

The key questions we want our volume to address are:

  • semantic and syntactic universals and parameters of variation in the family of Slavic languages,
  • micro-typology of functional categories in different Slavic languages,
  • micro-typology of different predicate classes, 
  • grammaticalization and lexicalization of semantic categories, analyticity and syntheticity in Slavic languages,
  • diachronic processes underlying different aspects of variation within the family of Slavic languages.

Slavia Meridionalis is a multidisciplinary Open Access journal featuring papers in the areas of literature, culture, history, ethnology and languages of southern Slavic countries, as well as their dynamic interactions and their connections with other cultural regions. It is indexed in various databases, including SCOPUS and Web of Sciences.

We will also consider publishing papers in English outside the main topic – in the “Imponderabilia” section, intended for contributions addressing particularly important linguistic issues within the thematic scope of the journal.

Authors are invited to submit English-language papers (or translations of Slavic-language papers approved in the reviewing process) of up to 40,000 characters with spaces (including bibliography). All the submissions should present original ideas not published elsewhere. They will be reviewed by two anonymous reviewers.

Please submit articles via the OJS platform:

https://ispan.waw.pl/journals/index.php/sm/user/register

Deadline for submission: 30 September 2022

Planned date of publication: 2023
