About

This LITHUANIAN PAPERS magazine is published,annually, by the Lithuanian Studies Society (LSS) at the University of Tasmania in Australia.

LSS is a non-profit students’ society, established in 1987. It is devoted to making people aware of Lithuania and its heritage. The Society encourages graduate research, at the University of Tasmania and elsewhere, on all topics linked with Lithuania.

LITHUANIAN PAPERS magazine publishes the latest Lithuanian research results at the University of Tasmania and elsewhere. General interest articles on Lithuanian subjects are also offered, when space permits.

The origin of this journal’s name goes back to 1987. During that year, the Lithuanian Studies Society started fortnightly lunchtime lectures at the University of Tasmania, on a wide range of topics connected with Lithuania. Some of these lectures were given by the University’s members of staff; others were presented by visiting speakers and invited guests. It soon became apparent that many original papers had emerged from this lecture programme, and that it would be a great pity to lose the newly gained knowledge. Although short of money and resources, the Society decided to publish the best papers, chosen from each year’s presentations. And so, the Lithuanian Papers were born.
