Abstract: In November 2014, Centre for Cultural Studies, Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania, held a conference "Interdisciplinary Social Group Research." Presentation topics focused on subcultural groups, communities and social movements within diverse social environments. The conference aimed to gain understanding on how isolated alternative, innovative small social groups arise, function and disappear. Central in the conference was the question of social and cultural role of small groups. Situated within the framework of sociology, anthropology, arts and political sciences, the con¬ference generated huge interest. 41 speakers from various universities and research institutions of Lithuania took part in the conference. It included presentations in 7 sections, a poster session and a round table of young scholars. The topics covered by the participants included "start-up" subculture, graffiti artists, sarariman, swaggers, skinheads, neo pagans, historical re-enactors, prisoners, communal artists and Dalits among others. The presentations promoted discussions and involvement of the audience, students, scholars and representatives of the municipality. Interest in the topics of the conference and the high turnout testify to the topicality of the conference and the need for the development of social group research
