In augustus 1971 werd op initiatief van wijlen Professor Jozef IJsewijn in Leuven het allereerste internationale Neo-Latijnse congres georganiseerd. Er werd toen een International Association for Neo-Latin Studies opgericht, en na de tweede IANLS-conferentie in Amsterdam (1973) volgden driejaarlijkse congressen in Tours (1976), Bologna (1979), St Andrews (1982), Wolfenbüttel (1985), Toronto (1988), Kopenhagen (1991), Bari (1994), Ávila (1997), Cambridge (2000), Bonn (2003), Boedapest (2006), Uppsala (2009), Münster (2012), Wenen (2015) en Albacete (2018).
Begin augustus werd tijdens die laatste bijeenkomst ook de locatie van het volgende congres vastgelegd. We zijn verheugd u te kunnen melden dat precies 50 jaar na het eerste, nu ook het 18de Congress of the International Association for Neo-Latin Studies zal worden georganiseerd door het Seminarium Philologiae Humanisticae, van 1 tot 6 augustus 2021. We verwachten dan ruim 300 Neo-Latinisten uit de hele wereld.

Het organiserend comité bestaat momenteel uit Jan Papy (voorzitter), Jeroen De Keyser (coördinator), Marijke Crab (congresmanager), Fabio Della Schiava en Ide François.

Neo-Latin Scholarship on the Slavs

An international conference organised by

the Ján Stanislav Institute of Slavistics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences

to be held in Bratislava on 5–7 December 2018

Call for Papers

Almost all branches of modern science and scholarship, including humanities, can trace their existence back to at least early modern times when Latin was a common medium of European erudition. Yet, present-day researchers in individual disciplines are largely unaware of the existence of early modern Latin scholarship related to their respective fields of study.

This conference aims to explore the rich corpus of Neo-Latin scholarly texts written about the Slavs, thereby intending to throw light on the early stages of what later became established as Slavistics or Slavonic Studies. We also hope to bring closer together researchers from the fields of Slavistics and Neo-Latin Studies, a combination which we believe carries great potential for future research in both disciplines.

We welcome papers of twenty to thirty minutes in English, German or Latin concerning early modern Latin scholarship on the history, philology, mythology, ethnography, geography, etc., of the Slavs. Publication of a collection of essays based on the conference proceedings is envisaged in 2020. Please send your proposal of ca. 250 words and a very short biographical note to Dr Svorad Zavarský ( no later than 15 December 2017. All authors will be notified by the end of 2017.
