Women's National Council, Advocate for the Emancipation of Women
Ledererová, Eva ; Štemberk, Jan (advisor) ; Cviklová, Lucie (referee)
Women's National Council, Advocate for the Emancipation of Women Abstract This thesis examines the work of the Women's National Council, which operated between 1923 and 1942 and was the largest feminist organization in interwar Czechoslovakia. It shows how the Council functioned and what activities it focused on. The thesis also explores the Council's goals and how it achieved them. Its primary goal was gender equality, as stated in the Czechoslovak Constitution of 1920. The most effective way to bring this about was to understand the country's legal framework. To that end, the Council carefully examined existing laws and proposed amendments when those laws or passages within them were found to disadvantage or discriminate against women. The Council would then appeal to the legislature to consider its proposals and shape them into law. In this way, the Council changed some very significant laws, making their application more equitable. The Council was active in other areas, too. It held lectures, organized cultural events, and educated women. Founded by Františka Plamínková, a renowned feminist and advocate for suffrage whose life was forcibly taken during World War II, the Council would certainly not have had nearly such success without her. Key words: Women's National Council, Czechoslovakia, Františka...

Socialization and identity construction in the children's home
Mařasová, Alena ; Šalanda, Bohuslav (advisor) ; Cviklová, Lucie (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the issue of socialization and construction of the identity of individuals growing up in institutional care, specifically in children's homes. It focuses on socialization in the broadest sense and on its specifics within the institution. At the same time, it deals with the question of what it means for an individual to be a child from a children's home and also with the question of stigmatization. To obtain the data, qualitative research strategy was used. The data was retrieved through semi-structured interviews with those, who experienced growing up in a children's home and also with those, who work in the facility. In total, 8 interviews were conducted, 6 of them with informants, who live or used to live in a children's home, and 2 with employees of the children's home. Socialization and identity are then described according to the experience of the participants. Key words: socialization, identity, stigmatization, institutional care, children's home
Analysis of the problem of the transfer of Germans in the newspapers between 1945-1946
Gročková, Marie ; Štemberk, Jan (advisor) ; Cviklová, Lucie (referee)
For my diploma thesis I chose the topic: Analysis of the problematics of the expulsion of Germans in the period press of 1945-1946. In the first part of the thesis I will focus on the methodology and the chosen type of analysis. Then, in the theoretical background of my work, I will interpret the development of the relationship between the Czechs and the Germans, I will try to describe in detail when the first conflicts between the two nations began. In addition, I will deal with the expulsion of the Germans as such, as well as its phases, taking into account the establishment of the system of internment camps, the decrees of the president of the republic and the views of both nations on the issue. In the last chapter I will deal with the analysis of the press from 1945-1946. My aim will then be to describe the discourse of post-war Czechoslovakia regarding the expulsion of Germans, the attitude of the powers on an international scale, but also the visions of the future Czechoslovak Republic, as it was established by then political representation.
Image of the enemy in the discourse of security forces
Jeřábková, Darina ; Vávra, Martin (advisor) ; Cviklová, Lucie (referee)
The "internal enemy" was a formal term heavily represented in the language of the State Security (a secret service of the Czechoslovak Republic and Czechoslovak Socialist Republic), denoting a specified category of opponents to the then regime. The State Security's task was to protect the socialist and social system by fighting the external and internal enemies, with the security forces having been the authorities deciding who met the criteria. The thesis entitled "The Internal Enemy Image in the Discourse of Security Forces" aims to find out how the discourse of the State Security defined the term "internal enemy". The thesis is divided into the theoretical and empirical parts. The empirical part applies the qualitative analysis of the discourse to search for the characteristic of the term "internal enemy". All of the texts analysed in the thesis come from the Security Services Archive, administering relevant files of the era, and date back to the 1950s-1980s.
Future free and shared: Dispute of The Zeitgeist Movement and Freedomain Radio as a Scientific Paradigm Conflict
Kaleta, Jan ; Voříšek, Michael (advisor) ; Cviklová, Lucie (referee)
The thesis analyses a dispute of two anarchist movements promoting Anarcho-Capitalism and an automated non-monetary economy. It asks the question whether the dispute can be explained in terms of paradigm conflict and not exclusively in political terms . The goal is to search for signs of scientific paradigm in an apparently ideological dispute. The thesis also examines the reasons why did the debate deteriorate into a personal and moral conflict of the representatives. The method of analysis is Grounded Theory, with reference to authors who interpret Kuhn's paradigm conflict as the consequence of an unconscious language barrier. Paradigm was operationally defined as a hierarchy of concepts with physical reference, theoretical network of the concepts and the scientific field objectives. The field objectives are the only reliable reference points between paradigms. The thesis sums up the debate between Anarcho-Capitalists and proponents of Resource-Based Economy and recovers the scientific answers and field objectives which were demanded yet missing in the debate. The thesis concludes that the debate can legitimately continue and that the ideological differences were mostly caused by a different scope of technical instruments and their describing paradigms, regardless of historical origin and...
Historical and sociological aspects of self-presentation on the internet (focus on the social network Instagram)
Petrová, Michaela ; Šalanda, Bohuslav (advisor) ; Cviklová, Lucie (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to find out what motives lead Internet users to self-representation in public space. My thesis is focused on the application Instagram, which has not been given much space. The age range of users is from 18 years, divided into free age groups, with the assumption of differences that arise in the course of the investigation. The work has a theoretical and empirical character, where the theoretical part is devoted to gradual changes in society with the advent of new technologies. Qualitative research that answers the main research question and the other partial research questions, was conducted by semistructured interviews. The results can serve as a theoretical basis for future research in the field of social networking, especially the application Instagram. Powered by TCPDF (
Transmedia Storytelling & Amnesty International In the Czech Republic and the UK, 1993-2003
O'Donoghue, Veronique ; Cviklová, Lucie (advisor) ; Reifová, Irena (referee)
1 Abstract Since the 1990s, two parallel international phenomena have occurred: the growth of digital communications and the growth of the non-profit sector. The latter growth has taken place globally, but is acutely visible in the Czech Republic. In the Czech Republic, the 1990s posed an interesting challenge for the growth of non-profit organisations after the fall of Communism. One communications practice which has been utilised in business, journalism and the media is transmedia storytelling, though its application has been lacking in the non- profit sector. Through the utilisation of SWOT analysis methodology, this master's thesis will see this practice extrapolated to the non-profit sector in an exploratory case study of Amnesty International groups at various levels in both the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom. From this, the work hopes to achieve a better understanding of how transmedia storytelling practices could aid an international non-profit organisation, such as Amnesty International, in the effectivity of its agenda setting and resource mobilisation - thus eliminating discrepancies between regions in campaigning and fundraising. Keywords: Agenda Setting, Amnesty International, Non-Profit Organisation, Resource Mobilisation, Transmedia Storytelling
