1. Literary-historical research on Slovenian literature of the 19th and 20th centuries: Poetry of the “Moderna” period (F. Bernik): recent findings have been brought into line with the work accomplished so far, which had to be completed prior to the final, concluding phase. Memoirs and autobiographical prose (M. Dolgan): various recent theoretical publications have been drawn upon which elucidate problems from the feminist point of view. This will enable a more reliable analysis of contemporary Slovenian women''s memoirs. Metaphorical and rhythmic aspects of Slovenian poetry (J. Faganel): research on the discordance of syntactic and verse congruity in translated poetry has shown that a normative approach to enjambment is predominant in the classical verse. Literary evaluation between the two World Wars (M. Ogrin): a young researcher has been collecting materials for a philosophical and socio-cultural analysis of literary-aesthetic judgments in Slovenian literary criticism between the two World Wars, and with this theme he has applied for a PhD dissertation. 2. Literary-theoretical research: A monograph on intertextuality (M. Juvan) was completed; it was published in February 2000 as the 45th volume of the »Literary lexicon« series. In the monograph the origin of intertextuality and the extension of its meaning has been dealt with in correlation with the contexts of its origin; a genesis of the concept in Kristeva and Bakhtin and a further development following theories of general intertextuality and of citing have been analysed; an adaptation of the concept in Slovenia in the artistic and theoretical avant-gardes of the ''sixties and ''seventies and in accepting postmodernism and post-structuralism in the ''eighties has been shown; a glossary of the theory of intertextuality and a classification of its figures and genres are outlined. In a special study a relation between intertextuality and historicity of a literary work has been examined. In connection with intertextuality a detailed treatment of parody has been carried out, in particular its place and role in Slovenian literature. Materials on modernism in Slovenian literature have been added to and verified as part of a study on modernism (J. Škulj). As far as the problem of the relation between modernity and the concept of historicity is concerned, differences between older and, with the advance of modernism, contemporary understanding of historicity have been analysed. A further treatment of the problem of dialogism, which leads to questions of literary multilingualism and cultural identity, is also correlated with the concepts of historicity. The first attempt to introduce comparative literature at Ljubljana University has been treated in a study on the basic concepts of Slovene literary historiography (D. Dolinar). A survey of literature and the preparatory part of research on literary criticism in the second half of the 20th century has been completed. 3. Critical editions of older literary-historical sources: Following the recent facsimile edition of Janez Svetokriški (1648-1714), »Sacrum promptuarium«, an international symposium on this author was organised, at which literary, linguistic, historical and theological aspects of Svetokriški were discussed. New and particularly the aesthetic dimensions of oral literary genres of the Slovene Baroque culture were presented and stressed. Due to international relevance of Slovene Baroque rhetorical prose, some papers delivered at the symposium were dedicated to similar phenomena in Austria, Italy and Croatia. After the symposium, the enlarged collection of papers was published (in April 2000). An inventory of materials from the National Museum in Ljubljana was published in a book by Jože Faganel, “Zois'' Manuscripts I” (i. e. S. Zois, 1747-1812). It consists of 990 units in 11 chapters; individual entries contain data on the document and locations of possible copies and transcripts or public...
