The methods of political reading in post-socialist Czechia and Poland
Blažková, Hana ; Šebek, Josef (advisor) ; Bílek, Petr (referee)
This thesis aims to analyze Czech literary criticism of the 1990s from the perspective of political reading. In the first part, the basic tendencies of Polish literary criticism are introduced: these form a contrast to the Czech context and also problematize some underlying notions of Czech literary historiography. The second part discusses the following terms: politics and police Rancière), depoliticization (Schmitt, Barthes) and ideology (Eagleton). These are adjusted to the specifics of the Czech context. The practical part of the thesis looks at the political interpretation of the critical reception of three novels by Michal Viewegh. The topics of the reception becomes the focus here: the debates around these novels include suppressed political messages such as the fight for the historical narrative of the previous political regime, or the disputes over high and low literature. These reflect the helplessness of the literary field, caused by the pressure of the commercialized book market. This part also looks at the contemporary debates on the so-called authentic literature and two program manifestoes. These examples show that the Czech literary field's proclaimed split from politics is only rhetorical: the result is not its autonomy, but an unreflected heteronomy.

Body in Libuše Moníková's Prose
Martinovská, Anna ; Heczková, Libuše (advisor) ; Šebek, Josef (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to present possibilities of interpretation of the body in Libuše Moníková's three works - Ujma, Pavana za mrtvou infantku and Zjasněná noc. The interpretation is preceded by a large theoretical part providing the philosophical basis of my readings: the concept of bodily subjectivity as introduced in Maurice Merleau-Ponty's and Judith Butler's philosophical thought. The chapter devoted to Merleau-Ponty is focused primarily on the body seen as a foundation of our subjectivity, speech and thought. Judith's Butler account of the body will be studied in relation to her analysis of performative gender, power norms and subsequently materiality and corporeality. In the second part of the thesis, I will make use of these concepts while interpreting the prose of Libuše Moníková. I focus on a body as a subject of power inside the fictional universes of the proses, I analyze the relation of bodily borders to subjectivity and intersubjectivity in all three works and focus on the ways we can see them as subversive in relation to gender norms. Final part of the interpretation focuses on the narration of the proses and on their "metanarrative" moments. I will argue, that the proses listed above can be seen as examples of an "embodied narration" through their fragmented structure,...

The literary work as a method of researching nonverbal and vocal communication
Hájek, Matěj ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Šebek, Josef (referee)
In my thesis, I will be pondering on the resources of non- verbal material as well as on the methodology of research concerning this topic. The thesis will illustrate the problematics of authentic non-verbal communication derived from scientific publications written by chosen authorities. In the second part, I will introduce the theoretical basis in which I will clarify the reasons why even artistic literature can be considered a valuable tool of research and I will demostrate the effect on chosen extracts with references to the terminology introduced in the first part of my thesis. In this part, I will point out the contribution of artistic literature to the scientific research as well as its possible typology. Key words non-verbal communication, systematization of means, verbalization, interpretation, exposition, discourse, pseudo- reality
The Metaphors of Socialism within the Canonic Prose Fiction of the 1950s
Kadavá, Šárka ; Bílek, Petr (advisor) ; Šebek, Josef (referee)
Based on Lakoff's theory of conceptual metaphor the thesis provides an insight into how the literature was used performatively to offer resources which illustrate the target domain - concept of socialism/communism and ways of its building-up. The primary texts used as material, were presented as obligatory for gaining of Fučík's badge; this campaign regulates both, reading sources and also the way of understanding of chosen canonical prose and will be seen as an emblematic and forceful instrument of narrative ideologization at that time. The interpretation of the canonical prose and subsequent analysis will be based on brochures made for the Fučík's badge, which will offer the viewpoint of current reader or more precisely candidate of this badge and therefore, the thesis especially looks for the root/conceptual metaphors which this institutionalised interpretation considers to be significant. Key words: socialism, Fučík's badge, root/conceptual metaphor
Non-Human Narrators in Literary Fiction
Hocková, Eva ; Bílek, Petr (advisor) ; Šebek, Josef (referee)
This master thesis deals with the phenomenon of non-human narrator in the literary fiction. The theoretical part of the thesis provides a conceptual framework. The framework is based on the so-called unnatural narratology. Firstly, the thesis discusses non-human narrators that are conventionally accepted. Secondly, the thesis provides a case study of non-human narrators that are perceived as unnatural. The case study includes examples from both canonical works and contemporary works. The research focuses on two main levels related to the usage of the phenomenon of non-human narration as used in the narratives: the level of "meaning" and the level of "form and effect".

Between Text and Context. The Theory of the Literary field and Cultural Materialism as Models of Meditation
Šebek, Josef ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Bílek, Petr (referee) ; Merhaut, Luboš (referee)
Between Text and Context: The Theory of the Literary Field and Cultural Materialism as Models of Mediation Josef Šebek, Mgr. Abstract In his dissertation Between Text and Context: The Theory of the Literary Field and Cultural Materialism as Models of Mediation the author deals with the problem of mediation between literary text and its social context. He focuses on two important contemporary context- oriented approaches to literature: the theory of literary field, developed by Pierre Bourdieu, and cultural materialism, first formulated by Raymond Williams and further elaborated by Alan Sinfield and Jonathan Dollimore. He interprets these two theories as basic, mutually complementary models of mediation: the theory of literary field presupposes the existence of a (semi-)autonomous literary micro-world, whereas cultural materialism stresses the full integration of the literary text into the social context, the "social material process" (Williams). After an introduction outlining the problem, the author concentrates on Bourdieu's theory of the literary field, his "new science of works," and on contemporary post-Bourdieusian approaches (those of Alain Viala, Anna Boschetti, Jacques Dubois, Gisèle Sapiro, Pascale Casanova, Bernard Lahire, Jérôme Meizoz, Geoffroy de Lagasnerie) which employ, develop, and modify...
