44th Croatian Seminar For Foreign Slavic Studies Students

Dear colleagues and students, the 44th Croatian Seminar for Foreign Slavic Studies Students will be held in Dubrovnik from 17th August to 28th August 2015. By attending lectures and participating in language exercise courses and seminars, our students will have the opportunity to improve their knowledge of Croatian language and to study different linguistic, literary, historical and cultural topics. The basis of the academic part of the programme are the lectures. This year's topic of the lecture cycle is The Other. Alterity, identity, contact in Croatian language, literature and culture. Twelve experts from different fields will present recent views on this topic. Further information on the Zagreb School of Slavic Studies and the 44th Seminar is available on our website.

I am looking forward to meeting Croatian and Slavic Studies students and colleagues from all over the world and I take this opportunity to invite you to Dubrovnik to the 44th seminar of the Zagreb School of Slavic Studies.

Head of the Zagreb School of Slavic Studies
