The paper provides an overview of the Dostoievski Society of Argentina (Sociedad Argentina Dostoievski, SAD), created in 2015. The main goal of the Society is to unite specialists in the work of F.M. Dostoevsky and Slavists. The activities of the SAD include organization of scientific conferences, meetings, seminars, round tables, edition of books and online journals. The paper examines two journals published by the SAD, outlines their scientific profile and history of creation. The journal Estudios Dostoievski, created in 2018, was conceived as a continuation of the international dialogue on the work of F.M. Dostoevsky and united the Hispanic Dostoevsky scholars. Another project of the Society — the journal Eslavia, established in the same year, became a meeting point for Slavic scholars and all those interested in Slavic culture and literature, as well as Spanish American–Slavic cultural links. The article highlights the peculiarities of these contacts, their historical background and prospects. The scientific program of the journal Eslavia consists in the publication of articles on various branches of humanitarian knowledge on the basis of the material from different Slavic countries. Estudios Dostoievski and Eslavia were awarded a gold diploma of the International Slavic Forum “Golden Knight” in Russia. The Dostoievski Society of Argentina cooperates with other national and international associations, organizes the International Slavic Readings and since 2016 has been a member of the International Dostoevsky Society (IDS).
