"Train your brain!": An Analysis of Game-based Approaches to Qualitative Research in Social Sciences
Cuker, Ivan ; Hájek, Martin (advisor) ; Kabele, Jiří (referee)
There are a few examples of the application of game-based qualitative research methods. Therefore, we lack an analysis of the nature of data that such methods would produce. So, the goal of my diploma thesis is to find out in what ways the data obtained using game-based research methods represent the ways in which people actually perceive and experience social reality. For this purpose, I analyze seven group discussions carried out with the use of a research memory game in which players match cards with financial terms written on them with possible definitions of these terms. I have designed an analytical framework using Alfred Schutz's theory of relevance, Erving Goffman's theory of the presentation of self and Pierre Bourdieu's conception of knowledge. With the aid of these theories I managed to reach several findings which might be fruitful for a future usage of this research instrument. The participants of a game-based research might hide behind their player's roles and thus be able to interpret even sensitive topics such as the financial literacy. The game environment of the memory game research allowed the players to introduce new topics and interpretations into the group discussion despite the fact that such topics might be irrelevant to the research goal. Such cases are rather marginal...
Stigmatization of mentally ill from the depression and anxiety patients' point of view
Štěpánková, Tereza ; Horák, Vít (advisor) ; Kabele, Jiří (referee)
The thesis is a study of mentally ill patients with depression and anxiety and their view on stigmatization in contemporary czech society. The thesis introduces the problematice in the context of current political precautions and research including comparison with abroad studies. It points out the current state of psychiatric care in the Czech republic and destigmatizing activities which aim to change this state. Based on ten interviews with patients with diagnosed depression or anxiety, the thesis shows that the stigmatization in case of these patients is not seen in such nature, as defined by literature. The participants experience large scale of negative reactions, however many of them do not meet definitions of stigmatizing attitudes. Their experience with stigma is different in different parts of their life, partly based on whether the people close to them have a previous experience with mental illness or not. The fear of stigmatization is present more often than the stigmatization itself. The participants point out the low awareness of the public considering the stigmatization of mental illness, however they do not participate in destigmatizing activities in any way. Interesting finding was fear of establishing a family, presented by some of the female participants and very frequent use of...
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.
Formation of witness testimonies collected at CVH Malach
Strouhal, Matěj ; Grygar, Jakub (advisor) ; Kabele, Jiří (referee)
Ve své práci ukazuji na svědeckých záznamech přístupných v Malach jakými způsoby je utvářeno svědectví. To ve své práci vnímám jako specifický žánr, který je ovlivňován zároveň diskursem a pravidly vyprávění. Ve své práci se pokouším ukázat způsoby, tomu dochází, a tím přispět k lepšímu pochopení svědectví jako takového. Důvodem této snahy je pak mimo jiné i vzrůstající míra využívání svědectví k vzdělávacím účelům, ve kterých se původně doplňkové funkce ve vzta historiografii dostává svědectví stále více prostoru i jako vlastnímu zdroji informací. Skrze výpovědi pamětníků je svědectví schopné přenášet nejen prosté informace, ale díky své autenticitě také emoce a morální apel. Ve své práci na materiálech USC Shoah Foundation Institute ukazuji způsoby, kterými dochází jak k omezování vyprávění diskursem, tak příklady, ve kterých nachází vyprávění v diskursu oporu, či taková, ve kterých se projevuje moc vyprávění nad diskursem. K tomuto závěru docházím na základě analyzování oficiálních dokumentů nadace USC Shoah Foundation Institute. Mezi ně patří podklady pro tazatele a pamětníky, které mají zmiňovaní k dispozici dříve, než je videozáznam pořizován. Dále pak návody pro katalogizování a indexování získaných svědeckých záznamů a příručka pro uživatele archivu. Ve druhé části analýzy se pak soustředím na obsah...
The Rise of Direct Democracy in the Czech Republic: Sources, Use and Consequences
Dvořák, Tomáš ; Kabele, Jiří (advisor) ; Šaradín, Pavel (referee) ; Vráblíková, Kateřina (referee)
In the last few decades there has been an expansion of institutions of direct democracy in most developed countries. The Czech Republic has been no exception and over the past 25 years, there has been a rise of direct democracy in the Czech Republic. The aim of the dissertation is an analysis of the use of direct democracy in the Czech Republic. Although the analyses are based mainly on data from the Czech Republic, the aim is also to contribute to scholarly debates in the field of direct democracy research. I focus on the following questions: Who supports the use of direct democracy and who participates in it in the Czech Republic? How do voters form opinions and what are the characteristics of direct democracy campaigns? What is the effect of direct democracy on other forms of political participation? I view direct democracy as an institutional innovation and evaluate it based on three criterions: inclusiveness, competence and efficiency. First, I focus on who supports the expansion of direct democracy. I also study the patterns of turnout of various social groups in direct democracy (inclusiveness). Second, I analyse the processes of opinion formation in direct democracy campaigns to find out, whether it can be regarded as competent or not. Last, I analyse whether direct democracy leads to increased or...

The subject of this thesis are the models of the school-leaving exams changing over time due to the educational policy of the state and sometimes tumultuous political developments. The theoretical part contains historical analysis of the graduation exam and its models, creating the basis for the empirical part. Based on the study of legislation and rules governing conditions and holding the graduation exams and further study of the relevant literature, on a precise description of the current model and indicating the current efforts to modify the existing model of the graduation exam the vivid picture of this phenomenon in the whole range of educational issues is created. The attention is also paid to the issue of holding the graduation exam. The leaving examination since its inception in our country in 1849 has been defined by the law, its implementation has been modified the closer decrees. It has always been a significant "politicians", not only purely "educational theme." Changes in model of the school-leaving examination always reflect the changes in the system of our educational policy. The aim of the work in the empirical part is to analyze the current evolution, current status, to identify neuralgic points of the graduation exams and to suggest possible trends of the graduation exam in the...

I analyzed 12 websites of annual markets and managed to interview 13 respondents. The second part of my thesis concentrates on the analysis of the respondents' interviews and to the analysis of documents.On the basis of the data analysis I characterized the annual markets based on their traditions, holding period, the availability of the Internet and type organizer. The next section is devoted to the characteristics of the annual fair from the perspective of sellers. I investigated how markets choose how to learn about them, what is the communication between sellers and organizers, who the competition is, the importance of the family and when is the season for...
Discourse Rules Connected to Dying: How People Talk About Death of Close Ones
Exnerová, Dominika ; Grygar, Jakub (advisor) ; Kabele, Jiří (referee)
The thesis aims with discourse rules of dying of a close person. Author works with other theories, especially with Gorer's pornography of death and also comparisons of current situation and history of Ariés and Elias, who considered the current representations of death to be more a taboo than in the past. The practical base of the text is a research combining both in-depth interviews with young people and interpretations of closed groups, such as support group and internet discussion. The analysis identified two approaches in young people's families, focusing either on practical aspects of dying of a relative or on emotional aspects. These two approaches were in opposition against each other especially while both being present in a single family. Also, several conditions changing discourse rules were identified. The death of a young person or by suicide were more tabuized than death of an elder person. Generally, the research shows that people's view on death is not constructed by media as Gorer proposed, since young adult people have their own experience from their families. In this text, death is considered to be a taboo of the society because of strict boundaries of what is appropriate and inaproppriate. Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
Changes of Corporate Social Responsibility
Knížová, Kristýna ; Kabele, Jiří (advisor) ; Kuchař, Pavel (referee)
In 1953, Howard R. Bowen gave rise to the debate on social responsibility, and since then it has become very widespread. The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility gained a lot of forms during the second half of the twentieth century and from the university campuses got into practice and also into the Czech Republic. On the background of changing theoretical approaches toward CSR we can see changes of business environment - especially in the change of the conceptualization of the enterprise - from shareholder perspective to stakeholder perspective. Stakeholder theory extensively influenced the approach to CSR. Based on the thematic analysis and interviews with the actors, I identified two main practiced approaches towards CSR. Some actors understand the corporate social responsibility on the background of moral values, on the contrary, other understand this concept on the background of economic interests of the company. Firms can be responsible from both reasons on the basis of external pressures. But, some companies "play a game on social responsibility" and society does not perceive it positively. This negative experience can be transferred to other companies with "CSR label". However, many researches have repeatedly shown that citizens expect from the companies involvement in social issues...
