The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Split is the publisher of a monograph titled Toponimija otoka bivšega života – Svetac i Šćedro , authored by professsor emeritus Joško Božanić and full professor Marina Marasović Alujević. The monograph is illustrated with photographs by Ivo Pervan, Boris Kragić, Dinko Božanić, and Marina Marasović Alujević. The title of the monograph points to a central issue: the desolation of these small islands, slowly disappearing from the collective memory and toponymy. For centuries, these islands stood as orientation points in space and time, but with no human trace today, they have become a tabula rasa , without traces of former life preserved in the names of localities. The scholarly efforts of our two renowned professors have resulted in this incredibly valuable book, in which they preserved for generations to come the insular onomastic heritage as well as collective memory that these names evoke. The authors found buried linguistic treasures on the islands of Svetac and Šćedro - forgotten words and names that unlock stories about these islands, now deserted but once full of life.

Matica hrvatska has published a book Andrić and Krleža: Poetics and Politic,  by prof. Boris Škvorc. This scholarly work addresses interpretation of literary works of two great writers and initiates a complex theoretical apparatus based on the ideas of the world's leading theorists of literature and culture. Through the discussions on Andrić and Krleža, on a theoretical and historical-ideological level, almost all of the current global problems are addressed, beyond the local perspective and the exclusivity of limited identification. Debates about two writers become a good example of the possibility of identifying important issues of today, that is, thinking about the possibilities and limits of literary research and humanities.
