The Language of Power and the Power of Language
Centenary Conference of Slavic Studies at Leiden University

The Centenary Conference of Slavic Studies aims to provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussion of a theme which links the studies of Russian politics, linguistics, and history. With the overarching theme “The Language of Power and the Power of the Language,” we would like to inspire a scholarly debate and exchange of ideas about three major topics:
- Linguistic Voluntarism in Russia and Eurasia;
- The Linkage of Political and National Identities in Russia;
- Russian History and the Culture of Remembrance.
