In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Shoshana Keller, the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of History, has published “Notes Toward Restructuring the Early Russian History Syllabus,” in the “NewsNet” newsletter for the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (Vol. 62, No. 5 (September 2022): 11–13).
The essay discusses practical approaches to changing the narrative from a focus on the Russian nation to the interactions of many peoples (Slavs, Lithuanians, Turks, Jews, Poles, and others) across Western Eurasia/Eastern Europe.
