MONKEVICIUS, Paola. Memoria social y producción de relatos orales en las asociaciones étnicas lituanas. Avá [online]. 2011, n.18, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1851-1694.

The aim of this paper is to inquire into the role of social memory as a determining cultural dimension in the ethnic demarcation of the Lithuanian community in Argentina. In other words, this work consists of the anthropological study of the processes of signification of the past when acting as ethnic diacritic in a community of Lithuanian origin that presently articulates mainly around institutions of mutual aid in the Federal Capital, Greater Buenos Aires and Berisso. For that purpose, we focus on the memory work made within the Lithuanian ethnical associations, that is, on the "official" institutionalized version, lead by the intellectual elite. Particularly we have considered one of the main supports or channels of carriers of the past, the oral narratives.

Palabras clave : Social Memory; Identity; Lithuanian Community; Oral Narratives.
