Research interests

Neža Zajc studies verbal expression, its capacities and long-range potentials. Her research draws on primary archival sources, i.e. manuscript materials, original documents, accounts, rare letters, and first printings. Although her primary focus is on the earliest periods of formulating standard written expression (which came to a close in the so-called Renaissance period, at the end of the 16th century), she also studies newer forms of inscribing oneself into history. Her research combines the indispensable knowledge of theology, linguistics and history, as well as the broadest possible knowledge of world literature (especially poetry). Her narrower interest is linked to Slav peculiarities in the reception of the Christian tradition.
