Summary The Hundred years of Slovene Studies on Charles University in Prague volume is a contribution to the symposium organized by doc. Dr. Alenka Jensterle-Doležal, doc. Dr. Jasna Honzak and Dr. Andrej Šurla in Prague (November 2014). The book primarily highlights how Slovene studies were taught and spread during a 100 year period at Charles University. In 1914 the Slovene lectureship was established at the Faculty of Arts at Charles University in Prague. Slovene- Czech relations had been very intensive and rich since the 19th century. The beginning of the lectureship represented a milestone in relations, as it made the option of learning the Slovene language available to Czech society and reflected the context of Slovene-Czech relations. The book includes several papers of scholars and teachers from various countries and universities, particularly the Czech Republic and Slovenia. The papers were written in both the Slovene and Czech languages. A Hundred years of Slovene Studies on Charles University in Prague is dedicated to the teachers and scientists of Slovene language and literature in the 20th and 21th centuries. It contains forty articles from Slovene, Czech and other renowned European scientists and teachers. The book is divided into six parts. First it examines the history of the teaching of Slovene in the context of Czech Slavistics at Charles University, a history in the shadow of dramatic political changes. In this part, the work of great personalities is emphasised: the importance of the first lecturer, Janez Skrbinšek, the influence of professor of Slavistics, Matija Murko, as well as Oton Berkopec and the research in the Slovene language of prof. Jan Petr. Second, we deal with the relationship between Czech and Slovenian linguistics. In this part, Slovenian scientists primarily examine the impact of Czech structuralism on Slovene linguistics during the 20th Century. In the third section, the research related to the history of Czech- Slovenian relationships in various areas is emphasised. These two national and territorial connections illustrate their long and powerful traditions. Particularly new and fruitful papers concern connections in the area of music. In the fourth part, we analyse the fate of Slovene studies at other Central European universities during the turbulent 20th and 21th centuries. We compare the situation beyond national borders. In the fifth part we include contributions by Slovene writers of three national identities, who were especially open to other cultures and the outside world. In the sixth and final part, we rethink and re- examine what occurred with studies of Slovene lectureship at Charles University over the last hundred years, a period of much historic change. The lectureship at the Faculty was cancelled after Skrbinšek and Berkopec, then renewed during the sixties when its status was institutionalized on the basis of an international agreement. Lecturers were sent to Prague by the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana. The position of lecturer was occupied by several people: Marko Dvořak (1968-1969), Sonja Maver Horvat (1969-1971), Albina Lipovec (1971-1975), Vlado Nartnik (1975-1981), Nives Vidrih (1981-1982 and 1991-1995), Metka Zobec (1982-1985), Alenka Jensterle- Doležal (1985-1987), Mirjam Podsedenšek (1987-1991), Jasna Jahić Honzak (1995-2008) and Andrej Šurla (from 2008 until now). The position and degree of Slovene studies depended on historical changes over the period. Similarly to other small Slavic languages and literatures, Slovene studies developed at the Faculty of Arts in the context of changes in Slav studies. Within the Czech academic environment, the destiny of Slovene studies were also affected by historical and ideological changes in the turbulent 20th century. A Hundred years of Slovene studies at Charles University emphasizes the dramatic development of
