The Balkanist’s Balkanist: Papers Dedicated to Victor A. Friedman

Volume 28 of Balkanistica has been dedicated to Victor A. Friedman on the occasion of this eminent professor’s retirement in 2015. It honors his contributions to the field of Balkan studies.

In this volume, co-edited by Donald L. Dyer (University of Mississippi), Brian D. Joseph (The Ohio State University) and Christina E. Kramer (University of Toronto), are included 28 papers authored by distinguished scholars in the field who hail from universities around the world. The volume also features an introduction and a full bibliography of Friedman’s work, which includes over 250 articles, several of which were published in Balkanistica, one as early as the journal’s second volume in 1975.
Although the current issue is exceptionally large – at 645 pages it is much larger than any previous issue – it is nevertheless modest compared to the career-long contributions of Professor Friedman to Southeast European Studies. Among his many and varied accomplishments, he has served as President and Vice President of SEESA and is now a member of its executive board. He is also the current president of the U.S. Committee for AIESEE.
Од Чикаго и назад: Papers to Honor Victor A. Friedman on the Occasion of His Retirement is an impressive and admirable academic endeavor by its co-editors and the scholars who have contributed to it. It will significantly enrich not only the archives of Balkanistica over the years to come as well as our own professional libraries, but it will also provide us with great satisfaction of knowing that these contributions have memorialized the amazing work of such a formidable scholar. Victor Friedman will no doubt continue to inspire and guide our own work for many years to come.
