5th International Scientific Conference "Uralo-indogermanica"

14–15 October 2022, the 5th International Scientific Conference "Uralo-indogermanica" will take place at the Narva College of the University of Tartu.

Linguists, literary, folklore specialists and musicologists, historians, ethnographers, ethnologists, and archaeologists are expected to attend the conference.

The aim of the conference is a comparative study of Uralic/Finno-Ugric and Indo-European languages and cultures. The focus of the conference is Finno-Ugric–Ukrainian language contacts. We pay special attention to the work of Sándor Mokány from Transcarpathia, who would have celebrated his 90th anniversary. Sándor Mokány (1932–2010) was a deserving Hungarologist and Slavist, an expert in Hungarian-Slavic language relations, a researcher of folk etymology, and an alumnus of the University of Tartu.

We hereby request:
1) to submit a summary of the report (1500–2500 characters) by 10 September 2022 on the registration form;
2) to prepare a slide show or demonstration material/handouts to illustrate the oral presentation (if not in the language of the presentation).

The working languages of the event are Estonian, English, Russian, Hungarian and German.

Organizing committee: Szilárd Tibor Tóth (Chairman of the Committee, University of Tartu Narva College), Olga Burdakova (University of Tartu Narva College), Elvira Küün (University of Tartu Narva College), Sándor János Tóth (J. Selye University, Komárno), Heinike Heinsoo (University of Lviv/University of Tartu).

Celebrating “Tribal Week of Finno-Ugric peoples” in Narva has become a tradition in recent years. The first conference, "The Concept of Freedom in the Literatures of Eastern Europe," took place in Narva in 2013, and we have alternately organized it with the conference "Uralo-indogermanica".
