Working title of thesis: Everyday Visibility of Lithuanian LGBQ

Research: I am interested in how Lithuanian non-heterosexual people manage their sexuality in everyday lives. I wish to examine when, where, and how they disclose it, keep it a secret, or choose a strategy in between, and what determines their decision. The background for my research is informed by studies of public and private, body and space, sexuality, communism and post-communism.

Research interests: Gender and sexuality in communist and post-communist contexts; practices of maintaining privacy in communist and post-communist countries; modes of being in public in communist and post-communist contexts; history of Lithuania.
