Working Lunch with Vedran Duančić (Institute for European Global Studies)

«Yugoslavia's Medical Cooperation with the Developing World: Socialism, Public Health, and Globalization in the Cold War»

Vedran Duančić specializes in modern intellectual history and history of science, with a particular interest in the intersection of science and politics. He holds a PhD from the European University Institute in Florence and an MA from the Central European University (then still in Budapest). His work on the involvement of geography in nation-building projects in interwar Yugoslavia resulted in the monograph Geography and Nationalist Visions of Interwar Yugoslavia (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020). His research interests have shifted to the post-1945, socialist period, and he published on science popularization and the history of biology, including the reception of Lysenko’s ideas, in early socialist Yugoslavia. At the Institute for Global European Studies, Dr. Duančić works on a history of medical cooperation within the Non-Aligned Movement during the Cold War.

Working Lunches are research discussions with international fellows, students and doctoral students, postdocs and members of the Institute. If you would like to attend the event as a non-member of the Europainstitut, please send an email to europa@clutterunibas.ch.
