Lithuania and Britain at the Oxford Lithuanian Society

This evening I spoke via Zoom to the Oxford Lithuanian Society and Oxford University Lithuanian Society on the subject of ‘Lithuania and Britain: An Entwined History’, tracing some of the key historical connections between the two countries. The event celebrated Lithuania’s Restoration of the State Day (16 February) and featured a screening of the film Jump as well as a brief visit from the Lithuanian ambassador, Renatas Norkus. I am grateful to the Lithuanian Society for inviting me as a guest speaker, and for the opportunity to introduce my proposed project of writing a book-length history of Lithuania and Britain, for which I have started a Kickstarter in the hope of crowdfunding a Lithuanian translation. This will allow the book to be published in both Lithuanian and English.
