Rolfová, Jana ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Kovář, Martin (referee)
(english) The thesis deals with the influence of the Second World War on the fate of women in Great Britain.

Women were invited to take their places, and they included many positions that were previously considered inappropriate for them. The aim of this diploma thesis was to find out how far women and society were affected by this situation, which was brought by the war.

Hůrská, Jana ; Kovář, Martin (advisor) ; Horčička, Václav (referee)
The topic of my diploma thesis is the Danish foreign policy between the years 1945 and 1949 and its relation to the Danish national identity. The main research question is, if and how the Danish national identity influenced the state's shift from the traditional neutrality policy to the North Atlantic Agreement. To understand the national narrative I use a discoursive analysis of selected sources, mainly the daily press and political speeches intended for public. I focuse not only on the image Danes had about them selves, but also on their view of the other agents of the international relations - mainly on the Soviet Union, the United States and the North. Keywords: Denmark, USA, Greenland, Occupation of Bornholm, NATO, UN, Marshall Plan, Easter Crisis 1948
