Digitalization of the Body. how new technologies of self-tracking change Czech students' perception of health and well-being
Kudaieva, Yuliia ; Hrešanová, Ema (advisor) ; Hájek, Martin (referee)
The topic of the work is an impact of digital self-tracking technologies such as wearable fitness trackers and smartphone self-tracking applications on an individual. I used the methodology of semi-structured interviews, conducted with students engaged in self-tracking and comparative discourse analysis, when data received from the interviews were compared with healthy lifestyle discourse, partly manifested in the Czech internet media portals. The research question of "How self-trackers perceive the impact of the technology of self-tracking on their physical activities and lifestyle, respectively differentiated among themselves in terms of impact and usage of self-tracking technology, and to what extent they perceive it similarly to the way self- tracking is presented in Czech internet media portals?" was answered in the following way: the participants were categorized as 'engaged' and 'sportspeople' users, and their relation to discourse was not complete, although they were using the conceptualization of a healthy lifestyle proposed by media. In addition, the work proposes a theoretical overview of the issue of self-tracking and discusses the possibilities for future research.
Invisible sexuality: Specifics of the Life of Asexual People within Heteronormative Society
Andresová, Nela ; Hrešanová, Ema (advisor) ; Remr, Jiří (referee)
Thesis deals with social life of asexual people in the Czech Republic. The author focuses on the areas of acceptance of their own sexual identity as asexual, coming out and feelings of stigmatization, relationships and intimacy, belonging to LGBT+ community and the perception of the existence of a separate asexual community and the visibility of asexuality in society. For the purpose of the work was carried out qualitative research among asexual people, who selfidentify as asexual. The aim of the analysis was to determine how social life of asexuals differs within the heteronormative society. Thesis is based on differences between asexuals and heteronormative majority, especially in relationships and sexual behavior. The difference is also in other aspects of their life. People often don't know the meaning of asexuality, which can result in social stigmatization of asexuals due to pressure to accept a traditional model of relationship. In some respects, asexual people are similar to other sexual minorities, but not everyone feels to be part of LGBT+ community. Czech asexuals feel to be invisible in our society and they form networks among themselves through the internet forum asexual.cz. However, they don't create a separate community or social movement and they still remain socially invisible....

Approaches to public health in the selected countries and their comparison
Bačkorová, Tereza ; Hrešanová, Ema (advisor) ; Růžička, Michal (referee)
This thesis investigates approaches to public health in the Czech Republic and compares them to approaches in Norway. The theoretical part outlines key concepts in the field of health, public health, health policy and prevention and explores their diverse interpretation on the level of professional discourse. The empirical part provides a comparative analysis of the development and current state of health systems in both countries, health status of their populations, a general comparison of the approaches to prevention and health policy, as well as an analysis of a concrete example - fight against smoking as a major health risk factor. The aim of the thesis is not only to compare approaches to public health in both countries, but also to understand the complex relationships between the compared cases and the context. Based on this analysis, examples of good practice are identified, and recommendations are formulated which could stimulate further research or serve as a basis for the development of new health policies, prevention programs and campaigns. key words: health, public health, prevention, health policy, health system, health literacy, comparative analysis
Procrastination and time management among college students
Trešlová, Debora ; Hrešanová, Ema (advisor) ; Šrám, Kristián (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with procrastination and time management among college students. I focus specifically on five students from the Faculty of Social Sciences, five students from the Second Faculty of Medicine and five students from the Faculty of Law. All of the above mentioned faculties are part of Charles University in Prague. The aim of my work was to find out what procrastination and time management tell us about trends in contemporary society and how it is related to its transformation. The data was collected using semi-structured interviews and than analyzed using thematic analysis. The six categories that emerged showed that students most often procrastinate if they are not sure about the instruction of assignments, about their field of study or overall having clearly defined life goals. Student do not usually manage their time. Their day-to-day activities are based on clearly defined hours at work or at school. Additionally, communication technologies have relevant impact on students' procrastionation, esspecially Facebook and other social networks. Using the book The Liquid Modernity of Zygmunt Bauman I make findings in the context of social transformation as part of the transition from solid modernity to liquid modernity.
Lived epilepsy: management of disease and embodied knowledge
Sedláčková, Tereza ; Hrešanová, Ema (advisor) ; Kabele, Jiří (referee)
The thesis deals with the lived everyday practice of patients with epileptic seizures and the types of knowledge they are working with in relation to seizures. Particular attention is paid to patients' embodied knowledge as the practical knowledge based on the experience of epileptic seizures and their bodies in general. The thesis shows how the types of knowledge (such as triggers, auras, forms of seizures or their management) are based on, created and learnt through the embodiment. Lifestyle regimens associated with seizure management are introduced as a link between general recommendations and individual regimens, with seizure management being negotiated with regard to other aspects of patient life. While adhering to management, there is some communication, cooperation and negotiation between the patient and his body. Finally, other forms of knowledge about seizures are outlined, such as those created by people close to the patient and those created by assistance dogs. (Furthermore), it is also explained what these forms of knowledge mean to the patient and how to work with them.
Abortion and men's role
Čermáková, Anežka ; Hrešanová, Ema (advisor) ; Marková Volejníčková, Romana (referee)
This thesis deals with research of men, who have experience with abortion of their girlfriends. My research attention was focused on men, who experienced abortion on their own. In Czech Republic almost no researches about men and abortion have been conducted and that is the reason why I started with this research. My research consists of a semi- structured interviews with five men. By analytical process of coding I created eight categories. We expect from men that they will be support for their girlfriends and they also want to act like that and be supportive. Men want take care of their partner. Men's role is to be support in this situation. They are aware of that this problem is mainly about women and that abortion is happening on woman body. But men want to be part of this situation. If they are not, they feel useless. After abortion they usually feel relief or sometimes guilt. But their emotions are varied. Abortion is also important incident for relationship between man and woman. Both usually think about future of the relationship.

Kozlovská, Tereza ; Hrešanová, Ema (advisor) ; Samec, Tomáš (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the practice of surrogate motherhood in the Czech Republic, often labelled as "a womb renting". The aim of the thesis is to get a more in-depth insight into the given issue and to find out whether and how surrogate motherhood is practiced in our country due to the lack of research on this issue in the Czech context. The thesis is divided into four parts and the theoretical part introduces the theory of new reproductive technologies and related key concepts from the anthropology of kinship and human reproduction. The methodological part is a description of research, methods used and data collection. The research included an analysis of online discussions and interviews with seven informants that were conducted by various methods relative to the subject's sensitivity. The analytical part is divided into five parts that reflect the key parts of the process of surrogate motherhood, namely naming, searching, medical procedures, relationships and finance. The research shows the importance of reproductive history of surrogate mothers, which influences the process of the substitute motherhood from the very beginning. The experience of informants takes place mainly at health facilities in Brno, Prague or Zlín, others are not much talked about. In Czech context, an acceptable...
