Thank you to all who contributed to our first Question of the Month discussion. It is clear that the field of nationalism studies has a lot of room to grow and the research currently being done in the field is very promising. With this in mind we launch our second monthly question. With so much research being done, teaching inevitably follows, so we are asking:
What are some of the challenges of teaching about nationalism in the 21st Century? How should academics and teachers approach these challenges?
We look forward to reading your responses!
