An overview of SEEJ’s move to UNC-Chapel Hill

As of January 1st, 2014, the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will be the home of Slavic and East European Journal (SEEJ), which is published by the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages (AATSEEL of the U.S. Inc.).

The journal publishes articles and reviews books on Slavic literatures and linguistics, folklore, film, pedagogy and any other aspects of the cultures of the region, including non-Slavic cultures in dialogue with the Slavic world. It 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.”

SEEJ comes to us from the University of Kentucky where Professor G. Janecek was SEEJ Editor for twelve years, assisted by Susan Janecek. At UNC-Chapel Hill, SEEJ is run by Research Professor Dr. Irene Delic, Editor, and Editorial Assistant Dr. Helen Halva, a graduate of GSLL. Book Review Editor is Dr. John Bartle of Hamilton College (NY).

We are delighted that the journal has found such a good home and appreciate the support GSLL has provided. We look forward to a productive cooperation with our colleagues from both the Slavic and Germanic side. The editorial office is located in Dey Hall 321. Visitors are welcome! We will be there on Tuesdays and by appointment.
