Slavic Languages & Literatures

The Slavic Department at the University of Chicago has a long-standing reputation as one of the major research programs in the field. It is a true Slavic department, with faculty specializing in Balkan, Czech, Polish, and Russian cultural, literary, and linguistic studies. The faculty’s innovative research has been recognized with a number of prestigious grants and awards (from the Guggenheim Foundation, ACLS, NEH, NSF, and Fulbright Commission). In addition to being members of various academic and professional societies and serving on the editorial boards of internationally renowned journals, members of the core faculty have also received prizes for their outstanding contributions to scholarship, novel interventions into East-European cinema, the Holocaust, 19th-century Russian literature and its giants, Balkan linguistics and endangered languages of Siberia.
