It also addresses the shifts and continuities, tensions and crisis that characterise the European project and its cultural dimension today. A reflection on cultural heritage networks in an age of migration is followed by a description of the overall research focus and interdisciplinary methodology. An overview of three case studies selected from a larger pool is provided in the article, which is concluded by a coda on cultural networks and policy implications.</p> Perla Innocenti ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2015-12-29 2015-12-29 3 9 40 10.15388/MusLithuan.2015.2.9207 MUSEOLOGICAL CONTEXTS OF LITHUANIAN HISTORY. CONSTANTS AND CHANGES IN THEMES, PROBLEMS AND TOPOGRAPHY <p>In nineteenth to twenty-first-century Lithuania, the exhibits of almost all museums reflect a certain aspect of Lithuanian history. These exhibits are the quintessence of museum concepts and are presupposed by sočiety and the groups within it, historical memory, scientific and ideological discourses. The most important themes of Lithuanian history exhibits include Lithuanian prehistory, past glory, statehood, resistance to foreign occupation, repressions, exile, trauma, struggle for independence and its restoration and certain personalities who were involved in these processes. Exhibits of Lithuanian prehistory have remained constant since the nineteenth century. Other tendencies of Lithuanian history exhibits in museums have been shaped by time, ideology and politics. Since the Republic of Lithuania in the Interwar period (1918–1940), popular museum themes include Vytautas the Great, the Battle of Žalgiris, medieval castles, rebellions against Russia and especially the prohibition of the Lithuanian press in the nineteenth century. Since the second half of the twentieth century, the musealisation of the memory of personalities, especially writers, is intensifying. After restoring Lithuanian independence in 1990, museums have tackled the acute themes of Soviet occupation, anti-Soviet resistance, exile, trauma and Lithuania’s pursuit of independence. Current museological representations of Lithuanian history are rising, fostered by concepts of “living history” and “the past for the present”.</p> Nastazija Keršytė ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2015-12-29 2015-12-29 3 41 86 10.15388/MusLithuan.2015.2.9208 MUSEUMS OF SOVIET BELARUS IN THE YEARS OF CULTURAL REV OLUTION. 1928–1941 <p>Using a wide range of archival sources, periodicals and contemporary research, information on the transformation of Soviet Belarusian museums in the years of cultural revolution (1928–1941) is presented in this article. By 1928 a centralized museums system was established in Soviet Belarus consisted of state public museums subordinated to the People’s Commissar of Enlightenment Office, state museums subjected to various educational and research institutions and communal local lore museums coordinated by Central Bureau of Local Lore. The Soviet system of museum policy was revised in the 1930s, when Stalin further centralized the cultural sector by imposing the obligatory ideological pattern. Post-1930 development of Belarusian museums took place in a drastically different political, cultural and material context. The creating a new ‘Soviet man’entirely replaced ethnic nation-building. After museums at western Belarusian ethnic lands became a part of the Soviet Belarus in 1939 they underwent profound changes as well. Basic functions of all Soviet Belarusian museums were subjected to comprehensive change including the manner in which societal processes was documented, the interpretation of collections on display, and even analysis of visitor logs and feedback. Museums, which were considered one of the most important channels for educating the communist masses, attracted special attention from the Communist party ideologists and government officials. The author provides insight into the character of phenomenon of totalitarian museum which was one of key element of political propaganda machine set up by the Communist Party Central Committee.</p> Alexander A.
