The main aim of our special issue has been to amplify the voices of Ukrainian scholars affected by the ongoing full-scale Russian invasion and present their research. While a few texts were written in academic offices in safe European countries, the majority were composed under more difficult conditions, lacking access to libraries, writing under siege, and regularly living without electricity, internet access or heating. All of these articles, therefore, capture important voices of scholars from Ukraine, historians, anthropologists, and sociologists, that offer true value to the current academic debate and provide an opportunity for more informed, empathic, and capacious discussions. Working on this issue was a deeply moving, emotional, and exacting process.

We invite you to engage with this research by attending the issue’s public presentation including the voices of:  Olena Sobolieva,  Olena Martynchuk, Keith Egan, Ignacy Jóźwiak,  and (online) Tetyana Boriak, Matej Butko, Mykola Homaniuk, Roman Liubavskyi, Pavlo Lenio, Tina Polek, Denys Shatalov, Patrycja Trzeszczyńska

The presentation followed by the discussion with the Authors will take place in Warsaw on 17th May, 5 pm at Pracownia Duży Pokój, 4/6 Warecka Warszawa as well as online. To get the link please complete a short form below.
