CFP: 22nd Biennial Conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore

Deadline: October 1, 2021

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.
