Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences offers innovative solutions to European societal challenges

Research focus at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is on studies of man and society relevant for the sustainable development of humanity, society, education, national identity, preservation of Croatian values and linguistic heritage in the European context, with a special emphasis on investigating Croatian, English, German and Hungarian languages and literatures, history, philosophy and culture, as well as on studies of social processes and risks related to new information and communication technologies. Research results are made available to the community and thus contribute to the improvement of the quality of life, education processes, preservation and promotion of national identity, linguistic, literary and cultural heritage.

 Multilingualism Managing multilingualism is one of the European challenges that requires a combination of different approaches from social sciences and humanities and aims to respond to the pressures of increased mobility of European citizens on the one hand, and the need for social cohesion and inclusion in linguistically and culturally diverse European societies on the other. The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, together with 22 partners from 16 European countries participates in a large scale collaborative FP7 project MIME Mobility and Inclusion in Multilingual Europe, which combines research on multilingualism, mobility and language policy.

Digitization and literacy – the aim of the COST project IS1404 Evolution of reading in the age of digitization (E-READ), in which the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences participates with partners from 31 countries, is to improve scientific understanding of the implications of digitization, hence helping individuals, disciplines, societies and sectors across Europe to cope optimally with its effects. Based on a multidimensional, integrative model of reading, and combining paradigms from experimental sciences with perspectives from the humanities, the project will develop new research paradigms, and metrics for assessing the impact of digitization on reading. These metrics will provide guidance for practitioners, policy makers, publishers and designers. (http://www.cost.eu/COST_Actions/isch/Actions/IS1404)
