Restoration of Independence Day greetings

Dear colleagues and friends of the Faculty of Philology,

Every year in March, with the sunny skies above the country, Lithuania celebrates the Restoration of Independence Day. For 32 years, March 11 has been a glorious day of our freedom. With the most atrocious war raging in Ukraine, we are aware that the notion of freedom is becoming more paramount than ever. I would like to invite all our friends, all peace-loving people to share our joy of freedom and to support all who seek freedom and peace. Let us celebrate freedom, let us celebrate life together!

Kind regards,

Professor Inesa Šeškauskienė
Dean of the Faculty of Philology


Adress to the community

Dear members of the community of the Faculty of Philology,

In Vilnius University, the Faculty of Philology is one of the most multilingual and multicultural, which is our huge advantage and strength. This is a fundamental prerequisite of many of our unique projects and everyday work, it helps maintain our professionalism and openness to people of all races, nations, genders, religions, languages, opinions, and lifestyles. We are also a peace-loving community supporting those who are wrongly accused or disadvantaged, helping all experiencing injustice or humiliation.

In the context of the most atrocious war, many of us have become more sensitive and vulnerable to the surrounding world. However, I would like to encourage you all to concentrate and proceed with your everyday tasks, to discuss, to talk to each other, to solve problems, just to go on living. Let us also make sure that we still adhere to and cherish our key academic and human values, let us respect one another.

I am convinced that each and every member of the community of the Faculty of Philology is a patriot of his/her country and also aware how fragile our common world may be, especially if assailed by suspicion or accusation on the grounds of race, gender, nationality, religion, language, opinion, or lifestyle. Let us try to avoid it. I trust you, I am happy to work together with you.

If you are concerned about suspicious emails or experience humiliating attacks, write to me or call me.

Thank you all for your understanding.


Kind regards,

Professor Inesa Šeškauskienė
Dean of the Faculty of Philology


Restoration of Lithuania's Statehood Day greetings

MicrosoftTeams-image_copy_copy_copy.pngDear colleagues,

May I congratulate you on the occasion of the Day of the Restoration of Lithuania’s Statehood! It is the 104th anniversary, and we are proud to be able to celebrate it; during the last three decades, in independent Lithuania, we have also been able to openly share our joy with other people, which was not possible in Soviet times. I invite you all, our dear international friends, to join us in our celebration. I am attaching a lovely picture from last year. I feel you are smiling. :)

Let us share our joy!

Kind regards,

Prof. Inesa Šeškauskienė
Dean of the Faculty of Philology
