Ulbandus



Produced under the auspices of the Slavic Department at Columbia University, ULBANDUS, The Slavic Review of Columbia University (http://www.ulbandus.org/)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, even superficially unrelated ones. Though faculty members sit on the advisory board, the production, editing, and management of ULBANDUS is carried out entirely by the graduate students in the Columbia Slavic Department.

To contact the Editors by email, write to ulbandus@columbia.edu.
