    DR. LAURA LAURUŠAITĖ FROM THE INSTITUTE OF LITHUANIAN LITERATURE AND FOLKLORE VISITING THE UNIVERSITY OF LATVIA

    On 20-26 September, Laura Laurušaitė from the Institute of Lithuanian Literature and Folklore visited the Department of Baltistics at the University of Latvia, where she delivered a cycle of lectures entitled “Identity on the Table: Taste in Lithuanian and Latvian Literatures”.

    From Sanskrit to „melagienos”: the world through the prism of Lithuanian language

    7 October, 3 p.m. (EEST, Lithuania time), Vytautas Magnus University invites to participate in an online lecture „From Sanskrit to melagienos: the world through the prism of Lithuanian language” dedicated to all who want to learn Lithuanian and want to know more about this language. The lecture will be delivered in English.

    When learning new languages (and revising the forgotten ones), not only do we learn how to greet someone or ask for directions, but we can also explore the entire world of culture and its values: from grammatical constructions to words with meanings understandable only by the users of one language.

    During this lecture, we will discuss the paradoxes related to one of the most archaic surviving Indo-European languages, namely the Lithuanian language. Old in construction, and fast to its reaction to the rapidly advancing world. What are the challenges learning it, and why should we learn it anyways?

    During the lecture, we will answer all these questions and introduce your next natural step towards comprehensive knowledge of Lithuanian language and culture, namely, online non-formal education programme of Lithuanian Language and Culture Studies for Foreigners and Lithuanian Diaspora.

    The event is organized by Vytautas Magnus University and is a part of a series "October - Lithuanian Diaspora Month".
