The topics of the conference are the following:

1. SERBIAN FOLKLORE AND FOLKLORISTCS AND OTHER SLAVS

The topic “Serbian folklore and folkloristics and other Slavs” is bidirectional – from the Serbs to other Slavs and from other Slavs to the Serbs. It enables shedding the light on the presence of other Slavic factors in Serbian folklore and folkloristics, the comparison of the motifs of Serbian folklore in a wider Slavic circle, but it should also inspire the research of the approaches of other Slavs to Serbian folklore, the investigation of Serbian and Slavic relationships in folkloristic research, as well as the approach to Serbian folklore in the literatures of other Slavs. The topic allows both synchronic and diachronic studies.

S u b t o p i c s:

- Personal contacts and collaboration: influences, correspondence, contributions, projects, collaboration;

- Other Slavic folklorists doing research in Serbian and South Slavic folklore;

- Slavic folklorists in Serbian folkloristics (Potebnja, Veselovsky, Propp, Bošković Stulli, Stojkova, Milošević Đorđević, and others);

- Slavic folklore in Serbian bibliographies, encyclopaedias, textbooks;

- Serbian folk culture in Slavic encyclopaedias of mythology and antiquities;

- South Slavic themes and motifs;

- Serbian and Croatian ties and demarcations;

- Translations of Serbian folklore into other Slavic languages and their reception;

- Comparison of themes and motifs – universal, Slavic, Serbian, local;

- Characters and themes of Serbian folklore in the literatures of other Slavs; etc.
