Does the Slavdom hold any more secrets or maybe further research is just like an old chestnut? Or maybe even boredom can be fascinating?
We are convinced that in the company of literature lovers, linguistics enthusiasts, culture passionates and Slavdom devotees, one cannot be bored stiff. Therefore, we cordially invite you to participate in the interdisciplinary conference „Slavic boredom and fascination”. Its purpose is to create a place of discussion and thought exchange between researchers interested in Slavdom, and also bring attention to the originality of Slavic cultures and similarities and differences between them.

Call for Papers:

We propose the following themes: boredom and fascination in literature; fans, rooters and fanatics; compelling research issues; Slavic hobbies and passions; stereotypes in language and literature; (un)clichéd art; linguistic worldview of boredom and bore; fascination with Slavdom.
We encourage you to submit subject proposals that are beyond the listed areas.

The organizers provide a possibility to publish the papers in a reviewed post-conference volume.
