Spatial Concepts of Lithuania in the Long Nineteenth Century

This book deals with the spatial concepts of Lithuania and other geo-images that either ""competed"" in the nineteenth century with the term Lithuania or were of a different taxonomic level (Samogitia, Prussia's Lithuania, Lithuania Minor, Poland, the Western region, the Northwest Region, Lita/Lite, Belarus, East Prussia etc.). The Russian, Lithuanian, Polish, Belarusian, Jewish, and German geo-images of this territory are analyzed in separate chapters of this volume. The spatial and topographical turns, especially the innovative perspective suggested by French Marxist Henri Lefebvre to look at the (social) space as a product of social creativity, research on so-called mental maps, postcolonial studies, and nationalism studies provided some theoretical background as well as analytical approaches for the studies published in this volume.

About the Author

Darius Staliunas is the author of Making Russians. Meaning and Practice of Russification in Lithuania and Belarus after 1863 (Amsterdam/New York, NY: Rodopi, 2007); Enemies for a Day: Antisemitism and Anti-Jewish Violence in Lithuania under the Tsars (Budapest/New York: CEU Press, 2015); and Lithuanian Nationalism and the Vilnius Question, 1883-1940 (Marburg: Herder-Institut, 2015; co-author Dangiras Maiulis). Since 2000 Staliunas has been a deputy director at Lithuanian Institute of History. He teaches at Vilnius and Klaipeda universities. His research interests include issues of Russian nationality policy in the so-called Northwestern Region (Lithuania and Belorussia), ethnic conflicts as well as problems of historiography and places of memory in Lithuania.


"This fascinating volume offers much more than is promised by the title-Darius Staliunas and his colleagues analyze the place of Lithuania on the mental maps of various ethnic groups, in various concepts of nation and state building in Eastern Europe. The book is the must for everybody who is interested in history of Eastern Europe and in mental mapping or imagined geography as a specific field of historical research." - Alexey Miller, European University in Saint-Petersburg "Darius Staliunas and his co-authors make an excellent and detailed contribution to the study of the spatialities of national identities with their explorations and explanations of Lithuanian national identity and territory as they emerged and crystalized during the nineteenth century, the age of nationalism. Rather than treat space and territory as unrelated backdrops to national identities, Staliunas et al. bring these concepts to the forefront and demonstrate how they are instrumental in shaping national identities. . . .the work overall is a great contribution to scholarly literature because it illustrates the role that spatial relationships and conceptions play in the emergence, growth, and development of national identities. The Lithuanian case may seem an unusual example for advancing such arguments. However, through their meticulous work, Staliunas et al. thoroughly demonstrate that the Lithuanian case brilliantly illustrates broader, more universal processes."--George W. White, South Dakota State University, Journal of Historical Geography xxx (2017) 1-2
