About the Authors

Digital Book of Papers



The conference book offered to our attention is devoted to the socio-economic, historical, cultural and anthropological dimensions of the diverse local social communities of the islands mostly in the Croatian Adriatic, but it bears the spirit of the whole Mediterranean cultural area. The research presented at the 3rd International Multidisciplinary Scientific Conference MIC – Vis, 2020 is impressive both for its multiplicity and for the diversity of the topics and the questions and issues raised. The conference organizers can only be congratulated for this successful meeting of scientists, people and cultures from different parts of world and the Mediterranean in particular. I hope other organizations and academic institutions in other Mediterranean countries will collaborate, share in the research and test methodologies developed in these works on their territories and region, and of course, organizing new encounters of explorers and locals on Vis, despite the current limitations of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The contributors, researchers from different academic circles, explored at a high level, a lot of issues and connections that define in this case, the Adriatic Sea and its islands, in the macro Mediterranean region, as a complex one that has great heterogeneity in various aspects, such as historical, geographical, anthropological, sociological, and economic. They highlighted this culturally diverse region, symbol of tradition and modernity, as capable of shaping, congregating and synergizing national identity and culture. I welcome this excellent book, congratulating the participants and organizers of this outstanding conference held in the island of Vis, for their contribution to scientific knowledge and cooperation, strengthening also the academic institutions that support them.
