Staniškytė); How does the philosophical concept of the Other distil the aspect of a national relationship in the historiography of Lithuanian theatre till 1940? (I. Pukelytė); What is the scope of the emigration of Lithuanian painters (Lithuanians and Litvaks) which started in the 19th  century already, and what positive or negative traces in general are left in the history of Lithuanian art by the phenomenon of emigration? (R. Žukienė); How did the peculiarities of the geographical location of Kaunas rivers influence the modernisation of this town and formed its image before the World War II? (V.
