The Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has been the home of the Slavic and East European Journal (SEEJ) since January 1st, 2014, beginning with VOLUME 58, NUMBER 3 Fall 2014.

The journal publishes articles and reviews books on Slavic literatures and linguistics, folklore, film and the visual arts, pedagogy, translation studies and any other relevant aspects of the cultures of the region, including non-Slavic ones that are in dialogue with the Slavic world. The Baltic States, Hungary, Romania and Albania are within our purview. SEEJ is one of the leading journals in the field with a history that goes as far back as 1957 when its founder and first editor, Professor J. T. Shaw, then at Indiana University, announced that “Slavic and East European Studies have developed in the United States and Canada to the point that scholars and teachers feel the need for a professional periodical.”

If you would like to peruse SEEJ’s tables of contents, you can find those on the website of the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages.

SEEJ is at UNC run by Research Professor Dr. Irene Delic, Editor, and Dr. Helen Halva, Associate Editor. The Book Review Editor is Professor John Bartle at Hamilton College (NY).

We are delighted that SEEJ has found such a good home and appreciate the support GSLL has provided, not least the expertise of our colleagues in the Slavic field. We are proud to continue the traditions of SEEJ which from the outset has championed diversity in its broad range of topics and countries covered. It also continues to strive for accessibility to those who do not know Slavic languages but are interested in the field by providing translations of titles, quotes and other relevant materials. Conversely, we also provide summaries of the articles in the language of their subject matter.

Our editorial office is located in Dey Hall 321. We are there on Tuesdays and by appointments and are happy to receive visitors.
