Eastern Europe and all its nations together with their cultures, literatures, history and languages may appear to be a fertile source of scientific inspiration aimed at discovering new areas of interests or revisiting the already-known phenomena. Therefore, we would like to invite you to participate in the conference, during which we will welcome papers on aspects pertaining to the following domains:  


Eastern European literatures: tendencies, styles, changes, forgotten and discovered texts, new interpretations of well-known texts. 

Eastern European languages: new perspectives, possibilities, limitations and threats.

Cultural studies: contemporary material and spiritual culture of the East Slavs.

Comparative studies: Slavs and the West, their attitudes to the West. The organisers would welcome a variety of topics presented during parallel sessions; therefore, the area of discussion is not limited to the suggested list and may involve any topics connected with the main purpose of the conference.  

We would like to extend our invitation to linguists, cultural studies specialists, sociologists and historians.
