The Departments of Slavic Studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich and the Universität Regensburg are pleased to announce the Second International "Perspectives on Slavistics" Conference. The conference will take place in Regensburg, Germany, September 21-24, 2006.
The goals of the conference are to encourage
the study of Slavic languages and literatures and to establish
connections among scholars working in these areas. There will be
three parallel sections, two focusing on literature and cultural
studies, the third one reserved for linguistics. The linguistics
section will have the honour to host the 6th Annual Conference of the
Slavic Cognitive Linguistics Association. The following keynote
lectures will be presented:
  • Language Mixing and Language Separation in Bilingual Russian-German
    Children (Tanja Anstatt)
  • Features: Slavonic and Typological
    Perspectives (Greville Corbett)
  • Speaking from the Inside: Stories of
    Everyday Life in Russia (Catriona Kelly)
  • On the Discourse of National
    Identity in Russian Culture (Renata von Maydell)
  • Fundamentals of Ego-
    Linguistics. Self-reference, Self-centred Speech Acts, and Related
    Phenomena in Contemporary Russian (Daniel Weiss)
  • Fiction and
    Individuality (Georg Witte)

Submissions from any scholar working on Slavic languages or
literatures are welcomed, including those in Slavic departments, as
well as in specialized linguistics or literature departments. We
particularly want to encourage young scholars to participate in this
conference. Papers will be considered on topics relating to the
diachronic or synchronic study of Slavic languages and literatures
from any theoretical perspective. Each paper will be allowed thirty
minutes (including 10 minutes for discussion). The deadline for
submissions has been extended to April 30th 2006 (abstract
specifications see below). Presentations should be in English in
order to open the conference up to researchers working on non-Slavic
languages and literatures. The participation fee will be 50 euros (25
for graduate students and passive participants), to be paid in
advance. Detailed information on payment options & deadlines and
hotel accommodation will be provided by May 2006. The participation
fee covers the abstract booklet, other conference materials,
refreshments and snacks. A limited number of participants from
economically disadvantaged countries may be allowed free
participation upon application. Please include a motivated
application for free participation when sending in your abstract. In
assigning waivers priority will be given to graduate students and non-
tenured scholars.
