On 19 October 2016, will be held at Žemynos gimnazija Vilnius a seminar titled "Traces of Europe: from the USSR to Lithuania". After introducing the activities of WAI we will discuss why Lithuanian transition cannot be considered just from the point of view of political transformation. In particular, we will investigate the role of individuals and groups for the transformation and pluralization of culture in soviet Lithuania and the creation of alternatives to the socio-cultural mainstream in the 1970s.
