Published/Hosted by Portal of Scientific Journals of Croatia.
Discrepancy is a student-run journal publishing papers in social sciences and humanities. It was founded in year 2000 by the sociology students club Discrepancy at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zagreb. Articles published so far cover a wide variety of academic disciplines and fields, ranging from cultural sociology and visual anthropology to social psychoanalysis and literary criticism. Most of the authors come from the University of Zagreb, but there were also authors from foreign universities, such as University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), University of Belgrade (Serbia), Harvard University, Yale University (USA), and London School of Economics (UK). The journal is published in Croatian, and it is published biannually. It is divided in four categories. First one is comprised of original works by authors, consisting of, usually, five papers. The second category is devoted to translations into Croatian of relevant classical and contemporary literature so far not available in Croatian. The aim of this translation work is to present to Croatian academia writers and themes that have been left out of the dominant social and humanistic research in the country. These translations include first-time appearances in Croatian of Henry D. Thoreau, Krishan Kumar, William G. Sumner, Loic Wacquant and Erik Olin Wright. The third category is the interview in which we have published extensive interviews with a broad range of authors, mostly foreign. The list includes John Keane, Jerry Z. Muller, Obrad Savic, Erik Olin Wright, and Jeffrey C. Alexander. And finally, we have book reviews and review essays of most recent publications both in Croatian and foreign literature in social sciences and humanities.
