Conference on Esperanto Studies, 2023

The 45th Conference on Esperanto Studies

Place: Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy
Time: August 3, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Organized by: Javier Alcade and Mark Fettes

Hosted as part of the 108th World Esperanto Congress



The organizers invite all specialists, researchers and other congress participants to the 45th Conference on Esperanto Studies, under the auspices of the Center for Research and Documentation on World Language Problems (CED). The event will be hybrid, allowing for participation online and in person, as part of the 108th World Esperanto Congress in Turin, Italy (July 29-August 5, 2023).

Two three-hour sessions will include several twenty-minute presentations selected from among the proposals received, with a final round table on the current research challenges of Esperanto studies in relation to collections and archives. We welcome proposals on Esperanto-related topics from such fields as linguistics, history, sociology, anthropology and literary studies; interdisciplinary proposals are also welcome. Proposals that analyze aspects of Esperanto, Esperanto studies and interlinguistics in Italy will be particularly welcome, in honour of the country hosting this year’s conference. Based on the presentations, a selection of papers, edited by the authors for publication, will appear in the journal Esperantologio / Esperanto Studies.

We invite all scholars in this field—especially younger researchers and first-time participants— to propose a paper for the conference. Proposals, from 150-200 words, must be sent to the e-mail addresses of the organizers: jalcaldevi [at] and mtfettes [at] We also ask that the proponents indicate whether they intend to present in person or virtually.

The deadline for proposals is April 30, 2023.
