  • Change of the Lithuanian Art (History) Canon: The Late Soviet Period and
           the Period of Independence

    • Authors: Kęstutis Šapoka
      Pages: 7 - 54
      Abstract: The purpose of this article is to explicate socioideological mechanisms of the Lithuanian art (history) canon of the late Soviet period and the period of independence. It theoretically defines the concept of art (history) canon, an important aspect of which is socioideological predispositions. By drawing on representative publications and albums from the late Soviet period and the period of independence the article analyses how and to what extent the Lithuanian art (history) canon has changed or remained stable. The analysis uses the term ‘Quiet modernism’, which at the end of the first decade of the independence period was used to rebrand the image of Soviet-era artists and re-format the canon. The research showed that, during the time period under investigation, the Lithuanian art (history) canon has been shaped in line with both artistic principles and socioideological factors. The canon has been partly changing, but its core is still inert and static.

  • Argumentum Ornithologicum: How Avian Metaphors Help Understand Artistic
           Research Better

    • Authors: Aldis Gedutis, Vytautas Michelkevičius
      Pages: 55 - 72
      Abstract: The article aims to examine the phenomenon of artistic research in the broader context of sciences and arts. For that purpose, Pierre Bourdieu’s methodological principle ‘exoticize the domestic’ is used. This principle enables to change and alter the epistemic perspective suggesting that ordinary and everyday things should be investigated as if they were alien and strange. In place of theoretical arguments for and against artistic research, an avian metaphor is invoked, which enables to exoticize the domestic sufficiently. By continuing and expanding the existing avian metaphors, the article aims to highlight those aspects of artistic research that are not easy to grasp and distinguish with the help of the usual arguments pro and con artistic research. The main question to be answered: how does the perception of artistic research change when looking at it as a phenomenon of the ornithological world'

  • Reproductive Decisions of the 1970–1984 Cohort Born in Lithuania

    • Authors: Ernesta Platūkytė
      Pages: 44 - 65
      Abstract: Even though childbirth in developed societies is increasingly associated with compromises in pursuit of a professional career, education, or other important goals, parenthood has remained an important significant life stage in the process of family formation. Change of structural and contextual circumstances influences the decision of individuals on whether to have children or not, and this increasingly depends on the desire to fulfil personal wishes and satisfy personal needs. Using qualitative research, this paper analyzes the reproductive decisions of a cohort born in Lithuania during the period of 1970–1984. The research informants are often referred to as a generation of a “natural social experiment”; a generation that experienced an active stage of family life in the conditions of drastic societal change. An analysis of personal accounts displays that for this generation, marriage had been the most favourable form of family formation, and procreative decisions were greatly influenced by the prevailing contextual circumstances in society. Maintaining the sequence of normativity of the life course created favourable conditions for those born in Lithuania in 1970–1984 to have children, and procreative expectations were associated with the institutionalization of family relations.

  • Beyond Administrative Criteria: The Patterns of the Recognition of Quality
           in the Humanities

    • Authors: Kęstas Kirtiklis, Aldis Gedutis
      Pages: 66 - 79
      Abstract: The present article seeks to discern the criteria or the quality of research, formulated and accepted within the scholarly community of the humanities. We argue that the scholars implicitly use these criteria opposing administrative evaluation. The analysis of these criteria revealed that they might be summarized in three broad categories – the novelty (originality, innovativeness) of the research; the excellence of the researcher (ability to conduct and describe the research); and the impact (academic as well as social-political). We argue that relevant criteria for the administrative evaluation of research in the humanities should draw on these perspectives.

  • The Crisis of the Political. Polis and an Individual

    • Authors: Raimondas Kazlauskas
      Pages: 95 - 137
      Abstract: The article discusses the crisis of the political, treating this phenomenon as an interactive constellation of political, over-political and apolitical factors. The aim is to reconstruct the assumptions of the crisis and highlight its main features in the context of ancient Greece. Under the influence of Dionysian religion, theater was established as a compelling and universally accessible authority to legitimize democracy. Therefore my analysis focuses on the social change after which democracy was no longer perceived as a form of governance but as a form of collective ownership. The article explains how the unbridled demonstration of power quickly erased the long-cherished principle of verbal argumentation and pushed Greeks to practice of power politics. It is shown how, with the establishment of autocracy, parallel interchange between political and anti-political institutions emerged in the Greek polis.

  • Nationalism, Modernization and the Polylogue of Civilizations

    • Authors: Vytautas Kavolis
      Pages: 7 - 23
      Abstract: This is a translation of the article “Nationalism, Modernization and the Polylogue of Civilizations” by Lithuanian sociologist Vytautas Kavolis. The original article was published in English in 1991 in the Comparative Civilizations Review, and the Lithuanian translation appeared in 1992 in a journal Proskyna (translated by Saulius Spurga). In this article Kavolis discusses complex relationship of nationalism and cultural configurations of modernity, postmodernity and antimodernist thinking. He considers how different forms of thinking shape the violent and humane manifestations of nationalism, and what opportunities are offered by globalization to the national identity.

  • Vytautas Kavolis’ Cyclical Concept of Postmodernism

    • Authors: Alvydas Noreika
      Pages: 24 - 43
      Abstract: Straipsnyje aptariama Amerikos lietuvių sociologo Vytauto Kavolio postmodernizmo koncepcija. Jame gilinamasi į šios koncepcijos teorines ištakas, prielaidas ir vietą platesniuose debatuose dėl postmodernizmo. Atsižvelgiant į tai, kad postmodernizmo koncepciją lietuvių išeivių sociologas formuluoja savo modernizacijos teorijos kontekste, pirmosios ištakų ieškoma svarstant klausimą apie antrosios kilmę. Teigiama, jog modernizacijos teoriją, o kartu ir postmodernizmo koncepciją, mokslininkas plėtoja kritiškai reaguodamas į amerikiečių sociologo Alexo Inkeleso modernizacijos teoriją. Svarstant apie Kavolio vietą XX a. antrojoje pusėje Vakarų moksle vykusių diskusijų kontekste, įrodinėjama, kad originaliausias mokslininko indėlis – ciklinė postmodernizmo samprata. Straipsnyje taip pat aptariami Kavolio pateikti postmodernizmo vietos modernizacijos procese apibrėžimai.
