Young researchers international
The Summer School addresses current issues of health and illness through social scientific and cultural perspectives. Students from communication, sociology and anthropology have the opportunity to collaborate with the ZIG guest professors in classes on highly innovative topics and conduct interdisciplinary research. The different classes focus on research, publishing and of course on the scientific subjects of the scholars and students.
With it’s first Summer School, the Center for Interdisciplinary Health Research (ZIG) focused on Social, Cultural and Communicative Aspects of Health Research, meeting issues of medical anthropology, Sociology and Communication Sciences under the leadership of Prof. Dr.Helena Bilandzic, director and board member of the ZIG.
