Faculty Publications and Projects


KU ScholarWorks

The Slavic, German, and Eurasian Studies faculty support KU's faculty-driven Open-Access Policy by depositing versions of their published research articles, where they have been able to retain sufficient rights to do so, in the KU ScholarWorks digital repository. The international open access movement aims to make peer-reviewed research available freely to the scholarly community and the public. KU ScholarWorks makes important research available to a wider audience and helps assure its long-term preservation.

Other Faculty Projects

German Dialect Recordings from Kansas and Missouri


Since 1980, Professor William D. Keel and his graduate students at the University of Kansas have recorded speakers of German dialects in Kansas and Missouri. This collection contains packaged excerpts from the recorded interviews, edited to preserve the privacy of participants. The recordings contain data collected from dialect questionnaires developed in Germany and the USA, along with free speech conversation, anecdotes, jokes, songs and recipes.

The Kansas Developmental Learner Corpus


This project set out to collect, annotate, and analyze a longitudinal corpus of university students’ writing in German as a Foreign Language at low proficiency levels. It contributes to Second Language Acquisition research by facilitating analyses of longitudinal language development both in groups and individuals. This project was supported by a Seed Grant from the KU Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities.
