Abstract

The article explores the disciplinary rivalry between “national ethnology” and sociocultural anthropology in post-socialist Lithuania. I unpack the influence of national identity politics on the research and teaching strategies, methodologies and epistemologies of these two fields. In particular I show how institutional politics has shaped disciplinary practices at two major universities – Vilnius and Vytautas Magnus University - and explore the effects on its participants.
