As a result of the project five collections of papers have been published. In 2007-2011, the research project “History – Mentality – Identity. The Role of History and Historians in the Formation of Ukrainian and Polish National Consciousness in the 19th and 20th centuries” (jointly supervised by L.O. Zashkilniak) is to be completed.

 

Together with the Institute for Historical Research of Ivan Franko National University of Lviv the Department conducts a regular (twice a month) workshop “History and Historiography of Central and Eastern Europe.” The Department is an active participant of both editorial and scientific activities.

In 2005, the 55th issues of the journal appeared. Lecturers of the Department of Slavic History and the Department of Slavic Philology have been jointly organizing annual international colloquia for Slavic Studies since 1992. The Department hosted the all-Union conference for Slavic studies (1973), the international scientific conference dedicated to the 1300th anniversary of Bulgaria (1981), a joint symposium of Ukrainian and Bulgarian historians (1989) and international workshops (1988-1997) dedicated to the memory of Prof. D.L.
