Meeting Description:

The Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures and the Center for Slavic and East European Studies at the Ohio State University are pleased to announce the 10th Graduate Colloquium on Slavic Linguistics. The colloquium, hosted by the Slavic Linguistics Forum, will take place on October 27, 2012, at the Ohio State University campus in Columbus, OH. In the past this event has featured panels on many topics, including morphology, syntax, language acquisition, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, phonology, phonetics, semantics, language contact, dialectology and psycholinguistics. We anticipate a wide range of topics covering a wide range of Slavic languages.

We are also very happy to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Grace Fielder. Dr. Fielder is in the Russian and Slavic Studies Department and the Second Language Acquisition and Teaching Program at the University of Arizona where she teaches courses on Slavic linguistics, language and identity, and semiotics. Her research focuses on the discourse, pragmatics, and historical sociolinguistics of the Balkan languages. She will be a Fulbright scholar in Spring 2013 at the University of Sofia, Bulgaria, teaching in the translation studies program. Her recent publications have been on discourse markers in the Balkan languages and include the co-translated Bulgarian novel, Bai Ganyo.

Call for Papers:

We invite students and recent graduates working in all areas of Slavic, Balkan, and East-European linguistics to submit abstracts. These areas include but are not restricted to: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, second language acquisition, and dialectology.

We encourage students working in both formal and functional frameworks to participate in this event. Interdisciplinary projects from the students in related fields such as anthropology, sociology, psychology, and comparative studies are welcome, as far as they are related to Slavic and East-European languages.

Each presentation will be allowed 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion.

Please send abstracts (maximum 500 words) to Kate White (
