Significance for science
The results of the program contributed to the overall knowledge of the relations of Slovenes with other peoples of the world in the past and present and to the knowledge of Slovenia and the Slovene people (Slovenes in Slovenia, Slovene autochthonous minorities, and Slovene emigrants) at home and abroad. Research on the Slovene-English language contact in the program contributed important insights on the past developments and the current, very flexible position of the Slovene language abroad and in the homeland. Since use of language is important for identity on both individual and societal levels, these findings will be valuable both for linguists as well as other professionals who deal with the role of language in communication and in the ethnic and cultural identity of the speakers of certain languages. The research results will be potentially useful for all those who regularly or occasionally encounter English in their working lives. For the development of the scholarship the contribution of the program will be important in exploring the situation of Hungarian minorities in Slovenia in terms of linguistics. Research of the Slovene-German language contact will contribute information about the method, form and extent of inter-lingual influence. Exploring language use and language biographies of commuters from Slovenia, especially to the eastern part of Austria, will show the development of functional multilingualism of these individuals and their linguistic awareness and linguistic identity. Study of contacts of the Slovenes with neighboring peoples on the edges of the Slovene ethnic territory and with members of immigrant communities in Slovenia and Slovene immigrants’ contacts with members of other immigrant communities in countries of immigration in the past and the present represent an important contribution to the field of Slovene humanities and social sciences. Since the problem of emigration and experiences of immigrant communities in comparison with other European nations was often pushed to the margins of national experience, this global phenomenon was only marginally treated in the Slovene humanities and social sciences. Known are the general frameworks of the Slovene emigration (directions, volumes, causes, etc.) and some of the individual segments of the life of Slovene emigrants in the new countries (i.e., organizational, cultural activities, biographies of some of the most important Slovene immigrants), etc. There are, however, fewer monographs that comprehensively present the history of Slovene immigrant communities at the micro level (within a single city or a smaller physical geographical or administrative-political unit), within which we could study the usually intertwined social processes of several societies, which often affect the events in several countries (country of immigration, emigration countries, neighboring countries of emigration, etc.). Published monographs in Slovene language in which members of the group dealt with phenomena of immigrant groups in the U.S. and Europe represent also important contribution to the usage of Slovene terminology in this content.
Significance for the country
Research on the links of the Slovene people with other peoples of the world throughout history and at the present represents an important part of the research of the past and the present of Slovene emigrants, minorities and the indigenous Slovene people as a whole. The published results of research will acquaint Slovenes in Slovenia with new knowledge about the Slovenes living outside the borders of the Republic of Slovenia. These Slovenes represent an important link between Slovenia and the countries in which they live, in many areas of social life. Research results will be used especially on the issue of preserving the identity of Slovene immigrants and possible economic and cultural cooperation of cities in which Slovenes live outside the borders of the Republic of Slovenia with similar entities in the Republic of Slovenia. One of the indirect results of the program will be contacts with the individual heads of Slovene organizations in neighboring countries and particularly in emigration, which allows for the promotion of Slovenia in the environments in which Slovene emigrants live. The results of the research in the program will also be used indirectly to promote economic cooperation between Slovenia and neighboring countries and the countries of immigration of Slovene immigrants. The local “Slovenes” and their descendants will play an important role in mediating the contacts between Slovenia and their cities. New insights on the situation of the Slovene minorities in neighboring countries will be particularly welcome after the entry of Slovenia into the Schengen space; the lessons of the history of the Slovene emigrants can help many people in a period of accelerating globalization. Research of Slovene cultural heritage in emigration and in neighboring countries will contribute significantly to the knowledge of the Slovenes in Slovenia and immigrants in Slovenia and the Slovenes at home, abroad, and in the world.
