INSTITUTUM CANARIUM

THE SOCIETY


The Institutum Canarium - founded in 1969 - is an international and interdisciplinary research association which is concerned with the history of the civilization (cultural history) of the Canaries. Rock art and related questions about the history of colonization, language and religion are some of the main fields of research. In addition, archaeology, anthropology and ethnology are in the centre of scientific interest. Beyond the Canary Islands, the IC is also concerned with the cultures of the Mediterranean region. Furthermore, its interdisciplinary orientation allows the IC to cooperate with specialists of various other scientific fields like the natural sciences, sociology and architecture. In some cases the period studied may extend to the present. Members have the opportunity to participate in specialty groups within the different areas of research interest, in order to facilitate an intensive scientific dialogue.

IC members are mainly comprised of specialists, institutes and interested persons. The institute is engaged in a worldwide exchange of publications with numerous universities, academies and research institutes in 21 countries.
