150 Years of Slavonic Studies at Vienna University

Author(s): Lilyana Minkova

Summary/Abstract: The symposium on “Vienna and Slavonic Languages and Literatures” which was held in the Austrian capital from October 1 to 3, 1999 commemorated the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Department of Slavonic Studies at Vienna University. It was only natural that the Viennese tradition of scholarship should be most prominently featured at this commemorative forum. It was natural, likewise, that many of the themes should bear on the linguistic and literary development in the Slav nations which until 1918 were within the boundaries of Austria-Hungary. What was new were not the themes but the present-day methodology of analysing the problems. Participants from Eastern Europe made contributions on subjects which were banned to them. The symposium convincingly demonstrated that humanities in the Republic of Austria is still building bridges of the spirit between the East and the West with exemplary zeal and vigour.
