Anthropology and Health

“Anthropology and Health” is the IUC-Dubrovnik postgraduate course that has been held since the year 1984. Until the year 1990, “Anthropology and Health” was held in Dubrovnik, but because of the war circumstances, with the break in 1991 and 1992, in the year 1993 it was organized in the town of Motovun, Istria, and from the year 1994 “Anthropology and Health” course is continuously held in the town of Hvar, on the island of Hvar.

The organizers of the “Anthropology and Health” postgraduate courses are: the International Institute for Advanced Studies in Anthropology – Hvar, the Croatian Anthropological Society, the Institute for Anthropology Research (Zagreb) and the IUAES Commission on Medical Anthropology and Epidimiology. It is envisioned as a meeting of scientists from different countries and various subfields of anthropology. The main aim of the course is to ensemble as many interesting and excellent lecturers as possible, provoke useful discussion and provide an opportunity to share scientific experience and novel achievements in contemporary science. A strong emphasis is set on bringing young scientists and providing them with an opportunity to attend lectures of eminent contemporary scientists and engage in challenging discussions.

The conference lasts six full days. Each day, four to six one-hour lectures are presented by invited speakers during morning and afternoon sessions that are followed by extensive discussions of the participants. There are no parallel sessions and every participant may follow all the lectures. The lecture pattern is flexible and is determined by specific requirements. The working language is English.
