Produced under the auspices of the Slavic Department at Columbia University, ULBANDUS, The Slavic Review of Columbia University is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to refreshing, adventurous, and provocative work on topics in Slavic literatures and cultures. Each issue is devoted to a topic or theme chosen by the editorial board and announced in a Call for Submissions in the late fall. We welcome submissions from faculty, graduate students and independent scholars in any field. Though faculty members sit on the advisory board, the production, editing, and management of ULBANDUS is carried out by the graduate students in the Columbia Slavic Department.
Columbia University's Department of Slavic Languages, one of the oldest in the U.S., aims to educate new generations of scholars dedicated to advancing the field of Slavic studies. It strongly emphasizes the rigorous study of literary texts, discourses and cultural history. It also encourages its students to pursue original and innovative projects that further the development of the field.
