Summary/Abstract: This issue of Interlitteraria offers to readers’ attention the papers from the most recent, the 11th conference of Baltic Literary Scholars, “Global Contexts, National Literatures”, held in Vilnius in 2017. First launched in 1995, conferences of Baltic literary scholars have been organized in Tallinn, Riga, or Vilnius every two years. Usually they have focused on two main issues: the memory of the Soviet period that is common to all three Baltic countries, and national identity and its reception in the Baltic and in multicultural European literature. The papers from the 10th Baltic Literary Scholars’ conference held in Riga in 2014 have already been published in Interlitteraria: Changing Baltics (20/1–20/2, 2015) and had a positive academic resonance.
