We greatly appreciate Irena Blekys’ six years of service in this position and wish her the best as she moves on to other projects. You can still reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org, but please be patient as we go through this transition.

Her research interests focus on the intersections of youth and national identities in Soviet and contemporary Lithuania. Recent publications include articles in Cahiers du Monde Russe and Ab Imperio. She has 15 years experience in non-profit and academic administration.
