Art by all senses
Charvát, Jan ; Uhl Skřivanová, Věra (advisor) ; Daniel, Ladislav (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the use of our senses in art education. The theoretical part of the thesis clarifies concepts of "pedagogical constructivism, personality approach in the teaching of art education, creation as self-knowledge, sensory education", opens the question of experience as a starting point for art activities for contemporary pupils at the time of digital technologies. Our senses that come out of us are inseparable and ubiquitous, therefore they interfer with the various other components of our lives. So that's why the work tried to cover the senses to a wider extent of our conduct. Sometimes the theoretical part ranged from the chosen trajectory, but it was only because of the strong feelings of necessity to think about the question of human culture or at least to mention the anchoring of our education in history. This section also focuses on the psychological side of sensory sensitivity education. The five elaborated tasks in the didactic part bring a look into art lessons which characteristic features are experience, imagination, free decision and easiness, which originates from true sincerity and truthfulness towards oneself. The main inspirational component is sensory sensitivity. At the conclusion of the didactic part there is a summary of all reflective dialogues and...

This statistical model helps to get the respective values and to show the electoral vote changes between the last two parliament elections (to Chamber of Deputies). The author uses quantitative and qualitative research for comparison and analysis of programmatical convergency as defined in the election manifestos of various political parties.

The reason for using the above mentioned scheme is that it provides a structured methodology to quantify the domains that the political parties do focus the most in their manifestos. The aim of the analytical part of the thesis is to define how and especially from where the Movement ANO...

The causes of terrorist radicalisation among Northern Irish Catholics
Parolek, Jan ; Aslan, Emil (advisor) ; Charvát, Jan (referee)
This work deals with the question of whether, in the case of terrorist radicalization of Northern Irish Catholics (being both national and a religious minority in the Northern Ireland and de facto also in the UK) during 'The Troubles', was ideology only a function of Catholics' socio-economic grievances, or a standalone, individually decisive factor. The thesis explores the motivations for terrorism as they are stated in personal testimonies, group surveys, or other sources. The theory of Radicalization Puzzle, viewing the radicalization as a complex non-linear combination of four variously strong categories of reasons (grievances, ideologies, networks and support structures) is used. After establishing the definitions of terrorism and minority status, exploring the Irish-British history and the validity of minority status of Northern Irish Catholics, the paper brings together the stated reasons for radicalisation and combines them in a "mental map." Several broad categories of reasons are identified and overlaid with the Puzzle categories. It is found that grievances were a big motivational factor for terrorism, but they were overwhelmingly of social kind, mostly sectarian or state violence. Economic grievances as a dominant radicalising factor were very rare. The Republican ideology has also been a...
Propaganda on Social Media: The Case of Geert Wilders
Záhorová, Kateřina ; Střítecký, Vít (advisor) ; Charvát, Jan (referee)
This thesis aims to explore the spread of populist propaganda on social media on the case of the Dutch politician Geert Wilders and Twitter. The research questions of this thesis focus primarily on the message that is being spread by Mr. Wilders and his followers, the way his followers react to this content and the attempt to securitize Islam through populist propaganda. The thesis uses the methodology of discursive thematic interpretation to analyze the narrative that is being spread. In order to collect data for this analysis, the analytical tool NodeXL Pro has been employed. This tool made it possible to not only collect data and identify the people interacting with a theme, but also visualize their position within the network. The thesis uses datasets collected by NodeXL for the discursive thematic interpretation of data. The analysis itself is divided into different sections, first analyzing the content shared by Geert Wilders and identifying the themes and reconstructing the narrative. Next, the analysis moves on to more specific subsections, such as important hashtags or examples of active users from Wilders' proximity. NodeXL was also helpful in modelling the networks and discovering the echo chambers formed around Geert Wilders.
