The Ukrainian Past and Present at German Universities: Teaching Experiences

09:00 - 19:00
Gebäude X

Russia´s ongoing war against Ukraine has immediately affected university teaching:  the number of scholarly seminars and lectures, as well as public events and debates dealing with the Ukrainian past and present, has grown exponentially. The aim of this workshop is to discuss selected examples of teaching experiences dealing with Ukraine made at German universities or other educational institutions, both on-site and online, since the summer term of 2022, share best practices across disciplines, and reflect upon the current and future condition of Ukrainian studies.

Registration for on-site and online participation until 10 October via war-and-peace@uni-bielefeld.de
