Andrius Bielskis

Andrius Bielskis is Professor of Political Theory at Mykolas Romeris University, and a active public intellectual in Lithuania. Previously, he was Professor at ISM University of Management and Economics. He received his MA in Politics from the University of York and PhD in Philosophy from the University of Warwick, and has taught political and moral philosophy at several British and European universities. He is the author of numerous scholarly articles and of Towards a Post-Modern Understanding of the Political (Palgrave, 2005). Andrius is a founding member both of the progressive intellectual and political movement New Left 95 and of the DEMOS Institute of Critical Thought. He also writes political commentaries for the Lithuanian daily Delfi.lt. Through these means, he promotes civil activism and a vibrant civil society. His research focusses on the utilization of virtue ethics in constructing an alternative political, economic and institutional order in our post-modern world. He is also interested in the visual arts (especially film) and their impact on our perception of ourselves and the world, operationalizing a “genealogy of kitsch” in relating cultural forms to consumer capitalism.
