The XIII World Lithuanian Symposium on the Arts and Sciences
Madeleine Shuey
The ‘XIII World Lithuanian Symposium on the Arts and Sciences’ will be held in Vilnius in June this year. Among the attendees will be Madeleine Shuey from the University of Tasmania, who will give a paper on the Tasmanian Lithuanian society and their contributions to Lithuanian studies in Australia. In 2004 Madeleine received the Lithuanian Studies Society Honours Scholarship and completed her thesis on the Baltic-Tasmanian reaction to Gough Whitlam’s change in foreign policy regarding the Soviet Union’s occupation of the Baltic States. The conference, as displayed through its name, covers a broad range of topics and will prove to be an interesting programme. Further information on the conference can be viewed at
