Shards of the history of the First republic. Oriental Institute, Alois Musil and unrealized travel to the Orient
Jůnová Macková, Adéla
The study is aimed at the very beginnings of the Oriental Institute in Prague. The main role playd orientalist Alois Musil, minister Rudolf Hotowetz and a lawyer Zdeněk Fafl. They prepared the official part of the institute – statutes, the members list etc. The main amount of work should be shaped according the results of an Oriental travel. From a letter by Alois Musil we know all the details he planned to undertake but finally due to his other scholar work this travel was canceled. However the plans from the letter show very clearly the role of the Oriental institute as an important economic and cultural institution.

Jůnová Macková, Adéla ; Kubů, Eduard (advisor) ; Jančík, Drahomír (referee) ; Láník, Jaroslav (referee)
The work deals with Czechoslovak-Iranian relations in the interwar period and reflects their political, cultural and in particular economic dimension. The entrepreneurial activities of Czechoslovak enterprises that managed to break into Iranian market represent the main theme of the work. The economic relations based primarily on foreign trade are examined within the context of political negotiations and the issue of expatriates. The case study explains the process of market penetration of Czechoslovak export companies into Iran and analyzes the activities of Société Iranienne Skoda within the context of factory (i.e. plant and equipment) orders and infrastructure development. The work focuses on penetration of Czechoslovak armament factories (Škodovy závody, ČKD and Zbrojovka Brno) into Iranian market. Czechoslovak export of munition became especially in the 1930s the main pillar of relations between Czechoslovakia and Iran. The export of armament into Iran comprised more than half of total Czechoslovak export into Iran.

Jůnová Macková, Adéla
A substantial contribution to Oriental studies was founded with a new institution, the Oriental Institute. The idea was promoted by the Czechoslovak president T. G. Masaryk and by his advisor in Oriental politics, Alois Musil. The institute was financially supported by the ministry of Foreign trade, the main role played Minister Rudolf Hotowetz (first director of the Oriental Institute). The Oriental Institute was established in 1922 and financially and functionally stabilised in 1927/1928. There were no permanent salaried posts; however, the cultural section of the Institute financed publications and travel by means of fellowships and grants.
