It puts literary reportage in media context with emphasis on history of the genre and its main representatives, it maps the current state of literary reportage in selected countries, authors, and themes of their texts. It analyzes the factors that affect the work of literary reporters.This thesis in its theoretical part relies on academic publications about the genre of reportage in each state in relation to Polish School of Reportage and its attributes. It also examines the usage of fictional components that affects trustworthiness of literary reportage. The practical part of the thesis is then dedicated to analysis of the reportage Spánek do oběda a zábava do rána by polish reporter Lidia Ostałowska in order to show what kind of impact literary techniques can have on form and content of reportage.

Mythology theme of Nikkarin's graphic novels 130
Kadlec, Jakub ; Čeňková, Jana (advisor) ; Láb, Filip (referee)
Diploma thesis Mythological motives in Nikkarin's comics trilogy 130 is one of the few Czech theoretical works that focus on the analysis of myths in contemporary Czech sci-fi comics. It applies semiological analysis to the still-unfinished tetralogy 130 (Odysea, Hodní, zlí a oškliví and Čas hvězdoplavců) by the young artist and writer Nikkarin, aiming to decipher mythological contents and describe the basic theoretical framework for their further exploration. The interpretation of the books is preceded by a section focused on the history of sci-fi comics in the Czech environment. The thesis is based on the hypothesis that the use of myths in the comic series 130 is deliberate. At the same time, the validity of the discovered myths is not limited to sci-fi comics, as they can often be found in other genres and on other platforms. One of the aims of the thesis is to discover such intermedial overlaps. An indispensable part of the diploma thesis is also the reflection of the series 130 in the Czech media, focusing among other things on the ability of the reviewers to decipher the hidden meanings.

The aim of this diploma thesis called Three significant trends in young adult literature is to analyse this literary category in the Czech Republic; to describe the publishing houses focusing on this type of literature and to determine, if there are any trends - and if so to describe them.

To accomplish this objective, analysis of popular Czech digital journalism websites is carried out alongside the use of two popular search engines from and Seznam,cz. Besides this main objective, the unique variant of non-fiction literature specific for Czech Republic, the so-called "literatura faktu" or "literature of (a) fact(s)", is better defined both as a concept and as a term.

Reviewers' Approach to Film Adaptations of Three Novels of Michal Viewegh
Berková, Pavlína ; Novotný, David Jan (advisor) ; Čeňková, Jana (referee)
The Master's thesis titled "Reviewers' Approach to Film Adaptations of Three Novels of Michal Viewegh" aims to illustrate the way Czech reviewers approach to film adaptations. Film often differs significantly from the book or copies it too faithfully, which may affect qualities of the work. Knowledge of the book may therefore alter the audience's perception and judgement of the film. If the film reviewer wants to present a full-fledged review to his reader, he should always consider all aspects of the film, which can be relevant for the viewer. On the basis of three film adaptations of Michal Viewegh's novels (Wonderful Years of Lousy Living, From Subway with Love, The Sightseers) and their film reviews, the work looks for the answer to the main question: how film reviewers judge adaptations? Do they know and take into consideration the book in their evaluation or do they judge the film as an autonomous work? The theoretical part of the thesis deals with the concept of film review, the definition of film art and the difference between film and literature, and the problematics of film adaptations. In the practical part there are analyzed nine reviews from different journalists from three national newspapers.
Representation of autism and people with autism spectrum disorders in Czech national newspapers
Straková, Zuzana ; Nečas, Vlastimil (advisor) ; Čeňková, Jana (referee)
In this thesis, I focus on the representations of autism and people with autism spectrum disorder in seven Czech national daily newspapers. Before I proceed to my own analysis, I deal with the definition of the term ʻmedia representationʼ. There exists an incorrect idea about this term which suggests that media only passively present something that is already given. But in fact, media actively help to shape the notion of autism. Based on foreign literature I describe how media represent people with disabilities, as well as how media portray autism and people with autism spectrum disorder. Research focusing on media representation of autism in Australia, United States, United Kingdom and China is described in detail. These works inspired me and served as the basis of my own research aiming at Czech media. In my research, I study which aspects of autism are usually mentioned, if and how media write about causes and solutions of autism, what are the different modes of representation and in connection with which frames, themes and sources we usually come to learn about autism. I also explore the changes of representation between years 2006 to 2016. With regard to these research questions I analyze the content of 539 newspaper articles. Furthermore, I illustrate my results with graphs and tables. In...
