Slobodan Dan Paich has delivered numerous papers at international conferences as keynote speaker and presenter based on his courses, lectures and research since 1969, which address tangible and intangible heritage, comparative cultural studies and migration of peoples, craft technics and ideas.
The courses he initiated in 1969 at the college and university level broadened the scope of art history into the History of Art and Ideas. These courses included geographies larger than the European cultural sphere and an interdisciplinary, across time curriculum was developed that included ancient and indigenous people as differently cultured, ingénues and refined rather than primitive.
