Journal history

[Up]

"Ricerche slavistiche" is the oldest Italian Slavic journal. It was created in 1952 by the founder of Slavic philology in Italy, Giovanni Maver. For a long time it was characterised by the centrality given to the philological study of texts, which corresponded to the formation of this discipline and its articulation during the 20th century. It now proposes itself as a place for in-depth study and scientific debate in a different historical context, where the roots and traditions of Slavic languages and cultures in Europe can be studied in their reciprocal relations and intersections with the non-Slavic cultural traditions of the area - with the cultures of the Germanic area, the Baltic area and the Balkans in their non-Slavic expressions - up to investigating their contemporary results.

The journal, owned by Sapienza University of Rome, is published annually.  Each issue has a monographic thematic section coordinated by guest-editors, with a specific call for papers.

"Ricerche slavistiche" publishes contributions in all living Slavic languages and in the main vehicular languages of the European continent, although contributions in Italian and English are encouraged. For the monographic section, however, only proposals in Italian and English are accepted.
