Please find below the announcement for the most recent issue of the Journal 
of Croatian Studies. On behalf of the Croatian Academy of America, I wish to

Volume 41 of the Journal of Croatian Studies 
The Croatian Academy of America issued volume 41 of its annual 
interdisciplinary review, the Journal of Croatian Studies. 
The 220-page thematic issue deals with the language identity of the Croats 
and includes several contributions from scholars in Croatia. 
The opening piece by well-known linguistic and long-standing editor of 
Jezik, Stjepan Babić, concisely reviews the historical development of the 
Croatian and Serbian literary languages, showing why the two languages are 
close, but distinct. 
The contributions by Benedikta Zelić-Bučan and Ivan Ostojić examine in 
detail the extent to which Croats of different socio-economic, cultural, 
educational and religious backgrounds designated their language by its 
national name from the 9th through to the 20th century. The authors cite 
examples from diverse texts and show that the terms Slavic (slovinski), 
Illyrian (ilirski), Dalmatian (dalmatinski), Bosnian (bosanski), Slavonian 
(slavonski) and language of Dubrovnik (dubrovački), were used as synonyms 
for the Croatian language. 
Marko Babić of the Miroslav Krle a Lexicographic Institute discusses the 
changes to the name of the language spoken in Bosnia and Herzegovina during 
the first decade of Austro-Hungarian rule (1878-1888). Initially decreed 
Croatian (hrvatski), the authorities later changed it to the nondescript 
Land’s Language (zemaljski jezik/German Landessprache) and finally to 
Bosnian (bosanski). 
The turbulent 20th century is covered by two pieces. Vinko Grubi ić reviews 
the naming and renaming of the Croatian language, focusing on the political 
motivations and historical circumstances influencing these changes. 
Attention is also devoted to the successor states to former Yugoslavia. Stan 
Granic gathers together in English translation or English original fifteen 
pronouncements issued by individuals, cultural and educational 
organizations, and academic institutions both in Croatia and abroad, related 
to the Croatian language. 
In the final piece, Vinko Grubisic briefly assesses some twenty Croatian 
language advisory books published primarily during the last two decades of 
the 20th century. 
The issue also includes reports on the 46th Annual General Assembly, the 
reminiscences of the Academy’s longest serving President, Maria K. Tuskan, 
other activities and obituaries. 
The Journal of Croatian Studies is the only English language scholarly 
periodical dedicated entirely to Croatian history and culture.
