About me

Education
Graduated from the Central European University (CEU) and Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest in 1993 (M.A.). In 2005 I defended my doctoral dissertation on Historians as Nation State-Builders and Their Influence on the Formation of Lithuanian University from 1904 to 1922 (University of Tampere, Finland). (Supervisor of doctoral dissertation Professor Marjatta Hietala, Department of History at the University of Tampere, the examiner of manuscript and opponent of doctoral dissertation Professor Miroslav Hroch of Charles University in Prague).

The doctoral dissertation examines the formation of Lithuanian state at the beginning of the 20th century. Lithuanian historians had a key role in this process. The author analyses the concepts and views of Lithuanian historians in relations to issues of nationalism. The creation of the Lithuanian university is discussed as a manifestation of this new nation state. The questions explored include what kind of university was necessary for the newly established state (should the university be Catholic or secular? Was it necessary to form the university for the needs of the society or for national purposes? What should the language of studies at the university be; should the university be national or international?) and; in what way the international cooperation of historians influenced the formation of the University of Lithuania.
