LTReikšminiai žodžiai: Lithuania; Sovietization; Intellectuals; Colonialism; Urbanization; Modernization; Transculturation; Subjectivity.

ENThis article approaches the Sovietization of the Baltics in the light of two critical notions developed by the noted Latin American critic Angel Rama: "narrative transculturation" and "the lettered city." By revisiting key moments in the development of Soviet Lithuanian culture and intellectual class against a backdrop of forced collectivization, urbanization, and modernization, the article aims at a novel interpretation of what Sovietization meant in the Lithuanian context, the significance of de-Stalinization and cultural modernism during the Thaw in the 1960s, and the cultural preconditions for the emergence of the popular movement against Soviet rule in the late 1980s.
