This academic year has not been as any other: the ongoing Russian aggression against Ukraine concerns us also as scholars and students of nationalism. In this panel discussion, we want to reflect on how we deal with the ongoing war, and its implications in our courses. It is not the purpose of academic studies to follow the daily political agenda, but also, we are part of a community, which is deeply affected by this war. Therefore, we want to reflect in this forum whether and how the literatures that we discuss in our courses contribute to a better understanding of the Russian aggression against Ukraine, and the implications of this war for Europe.
