Paradigm of Czech modern and postmodern feminism in the context of European culture
Fuxová, Bohuslava ; Ferrarová, Eva (referee) ; Pachmanová, Martina (referee)
This study presents an anthropological and historical analysis of the women's movement in Europe and its interaction with and influence over the development of the women's emancipation movement in Bohemia since the romantic period. Specifically, this study focuses on and understands European feminist literary achievements as crucial to instigating and informing the various developmental stages of the emancipation movement in Bohemia. In mapping the features of the Czech women's emancipation movement not only onto major works of European feminism but minor ones as well, this study examines the full range of influence had by feminist writing in the Czech lands, including that of works that have fallen into obscurity. By reconstructing international feminist writing in its historical context, this study is able to identify "lost" texts and consider closely their movement between feminism and romanticism, liberalism and capitalism. Against this backdrop, this study brings the individual efforts of both known and relatively unknown feminist pioneers in Bohemia to the fore in an attempt to grant them the public recognition they deserve. Thus, this study traces the currents of global feminism in order to achieve a powerful local effect.

Growing up and adulthood in the Czech Republic (Emerging adulthood through the eyes of emerging adults and their mothers)
Marčíková, Tereza ; Soukup, Václav (advisor) ; Ferrarová, Eva (referee) ; Hnilica, Karel (referee)
The presented dissertation focuses on the process of transition into adulthood through the eyes of young people and the eyes of their mothers. The research study is based on the theory of J.J. Arnett, who identified a new development period "emerging adulthood" [Arnett, 1998]. We use three different perspectives to look at the process of transition into the adulthood: Developmental psychological, sociological and cultural-anthropological. Description of each period associated with the transition to adulthood is extended by the context of a family in which a young person is raised, and by a culture in which the person grows. By introducting these three perspectives in the first part we are creating a theoretical framework for the empirical part of our work. In the empirical part the qualitative study is presented. As the research method semistructured in-depth interview with young Czechs and their mothers was used. Our goal was to understand the perception of the notion of adulthood by young people aged 18 to 30 years and the way they describe their own process of transition into the adulthood. We wanted to determine whether young Czechs show signs of "emerging adulthood." We were also interested in how the relationship between a mother and her offspring, the upbringing, and the cultural context influence...
Gender, identity, culture
Poláková, Markéta ; Soukup, Václav (advisor) ; Ferrarová, Eva (referee) ; Opletalová, Lenka (referee)
The dissertation work Gender, identity, culture presents an analysis of a picture of a man and a woman in the contemporary Czech society. The fundamental research theme is a transformation of gender identity under influence of cultural changes which have be in progress since the end of 19th century. In the theoretical part of the work, a research of biological and cultural factors that influence the creation of our gender identity is mapped. More emphasis is put on modern technologies and media, which have bigger and bigger importance in the lives of contemporary people. Gender identity is projected not only into how people perceive themselves but also into creation of intersexual relations. The practical part of the work is devoted to this theme. This part is focused on an analysis of gender identity being projected into dating advertisements on the internet. The tool of the practical research was a content analysis in combination with depth interviews with people who have undergone this way of dating. Key words: gender, sex, identity, gender deconstruction, virtual reality, anthropology

Culture and gender
Šeredová Purschová, Adéla ; Soukup, Václav (advisor) ; Opletalová, Lenka (referee) ; Ferrarová, Eva (referee)
Dissertation thesis "Culture and Gender" presents a theoretical introduction to study of phenomenon gender - sexual identity generated and shared by members of particular cultural systems, within social science, especially cultural and social anthropology. Term "gender" according to its basic definition relates to social and cultural differences between sexes in contrast to biological differences. This work surveys development of gender research from its beginning in time of Enlightenment, development of science and Women's Rights movement in 19th century to the present. The main focus of this work consists in gender aspects of cultural and social anthropology. Because of interdisciplinary character of gender research this work is also related to psychology and biology and presents the connection between findings of both disciplines. This work is based largely on analyses of foreign literature, theories and findings of Anglo-Saxon and French authors.
Culture, gender and power
Ferrarová, Eva ; Soukup, Václav (advisor) ; Matějů, Martin (referee) ; Pavlík, Petr (referee)
The dissertation focuses on a theoretical analysis of feminist theories in the context of social and cultural evolutionary changes. Special attention is paid to the culturological connections between gender, culture, and power. The aim of my reflexion is to describe concrete solutions offered by various feminist theories and schools from the perspective of improvement of the women's position in the society. The key of understanding the women's position in the society are gender behavioural patterns and gender stereotypes accepted and further reproduced by the majority culture. Hence attention is paid to a transformation of these patterns and stereotypes and a study of reasons why women were excluded from public life. Theoretical and empirical analysis of the women's exclusion from public life and searching for an answer to the question why women and the femininity are on the value ladder in the society behind men and the masculinity is a significant part of the dissertation. The results obtained by this research were used to verify how much gender influences basic social institutions (family, education system, labour market, and politics) in the contemporary Czech society.
