The 22nd biennial conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore will be held at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH on Thursday April 7 – Sunday April 10, 2022.

Our current plan is to hold the conference as an in-person event, though we recognize that there are possible problems, even in these days of greater openness, associated with an in-person event, especially issues for everyone with regard to access to travel funding and for those coming from abroad with regard to visas and potential travel restrictions.  The Organizing Committee will periodically assess the situation and may ultimately opt for an all-virtual or a hybrid-style conference depending on local and global circumstances; most importantly, we will keep participants informed as to the modality to be employed for the conference.

There will be two keynote speakers:

Victor Friedman (University of Chicago)

Andrey Sobolev (Marburg University), delivering the 2022 Kenneth E. Naylor

Memorial Lecture

The last attempt to hold this conference, at Arizona State University in 2020, was derailed due to the pandemic and the conference ultimately was cancelled. Accordingly, by way of compensation, we have decided to “grandfather” in papers that had been accepted for the 2020 conference and also make room for new papers.  Thus, if you were on the program for the Arizona State conference, and if your paper has not yet been published anywhere, you are welcome, if you like, to submit the same paper you would have presented in Arizona; we ask only that you (re-)submit an abstract for it in the manner required for this conference.

Your paper should treat some aspect of Balkan and/or South Slavic linguistics, literature, folklore, or culture.
