1972 | 2012

This month is the 40th anniversary of Romas Kalanta’s self-immolation and the two days of demonstrations that followed his funeral.  I’m in Lithuania for ten days to attend commemorative events, speak at two conferences and a school, hopefully do more interviews and (of course) visit friends.  I’m temporarily re-activating the “Amanda in Lithuania blog to chronicle my further adventures in dissertation research this month.

(And for those of you who who are wondering, I have a 150 draft of my dissertation.  It definitely a rough draft and I still need to write two sections.  But I am well on my way to my goal of defending my dissertation and receiving my Ph.D. in fall quarter.)
