One volume of the journal Philological studies will be dedicated to the theme: Slavic culture in transfer

The thematic volume of the Slavic culture in transfer arises as an incentive to dialogue in the research of the inter-ethnic and polyphonic past, but also of the present of Slavic languages, literature, as well as Slavic cultures in general. Linguistic and other cultural concepts, literary themes and plots have often traveled from one culture to another, and in that respect, every comparative (linguistic, literary, cultural) contribution, more accurate a research of the transfer of one culture into another and the accompanying metamorphoses of that process, is of a significant importance.

Among other things, the translation for the Slavic cultures was the basis for many interconnections - from linguistic transfer through cultural transfers to literary adaptations. Bearing in mind the intercultural and interdisciplinary nature of Slavic interconnections and mutual transfers at various levels of cultural exchange, the goal is to explore what was happening with the adopted, or translated, other concepts that were adapted and assimilated in Slavic languages ​​and literatures, and establish a dialogue between Slavic languages, literature and cultures in the context of the 20th and 21st centuries. So this topic is a kind of challenge that wants to stimulate the reflection and application of different knowledge and results, allowing the integration of different types of knowledge, ie the coexistence of seemingly contradictory directions of disciplinary thinking, methodologies and branches.
