Our research fellows are also employed as teachers in humanities departments of universities in Serbia and the region. The institute pays special attention and devotes considerable energy to engaging young and talented people, as well as to establishing a dialogue with the larger scientific community through the organization of gatherings, workshops, and lectures.
