Stand with Ukraine!

The Department of English, American, and Celtic Studies condemn Putin’s war against Ukraine as does the University of Bonn: see We stand with Ukraine and its people and want to offer our support to affected students from Ukraine, Russia, and surrounding countries. We also condemn the atmosphere of hostility towards people of Russian background in Germany and want to work toward the safety and emotional security for all persons affected by the dynamics of the war in Germany.


The International Office’s hotline – 0228/73-5544 – is open to all university students with their concerns, especially to those affected by the current crisis. You can also contact them via [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.]. Amongst other things, they provide scholarships for affected students and give advice for students (fleeing) from Ukraine or Russia.


This war concerns us all. Professional counselling is available for all university students. If you would like to talk to somebody from the department or need help contacting these services, please get in touch with Marthe-Siobhán Hecke ([Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.]), your liaison lecturer.


If you have concerns in connection to the war in Ukraine or ideas/suggestions as to what the University or department could do to help, please also contact Marthe-Siobhán Hecke. She is in close contact with the International Office and other university offices involved in providing support.
