Archetypal analysis of Radka Denemarkova's novel Příspěvek k dějinám radosti
Pavlisová, Petra ; Jiroutová Kynčlová, Tereza (advisor) ; Baslarová, Iva (referee)
This master thesis constitutes the feminist archetypal analyses of a novel Příspěvek k dějinám radosti written by Radka Denemarková. It approaches the problematics with an intesectional point of view focused on rape-revenge. The methodological and theoretical part introduces the work of the novelist Radka Denemarková and her style of writting that is characterized as feminine writting, which is also defined in the thesis and specified by examples. Besides analysis of archetypes which are part of feminist theoretical texts, the analytical part analyses particular characters of the novel that are divided in three groups: the characters that take revenge on rape, those characters who rape or are part of groups that rapes others, the third group links previous two and the characters are part of police investigations of a murder. The thesis analyses archetypes of femininity that prevail in the novel and masculinity that are in minority.
When Men Dance. Construction of Masculinity in Male Pole Dancers
Postránecká, Markéta ; Sokolová, Věra (advisor) ; Jiroutová Kynčlová, Tereza (referee)
This diploma thesis examines current phenomenon of pole dance/sport. This activity which was originally performed in strip clubs was relatively recently redefined as a fitness activity offered at pole dancing studios initially for women, but now also for men. Despite the efforts to redefined pole dance as a fitness activity in the eyes of the public pole dance is still associated with its erotic roots and (therefore) with women. According to previous research pole dance is seen as a feminine and feminized activity. Men's participation in these activities is, according to studies, associated with the belief that those men are effeminate or homosexual and therefore construct their gender identity in ways which are inconsistent with the social ideas of masculinity. In this thesis I explore the ways in which male pole dancers construct their masculinity within this unique environment. I also explore what participation in the world of pole dance mean to men who take pole dancing classes and/or who teach them as well as the stereotypes placed upon men to act in a certain way to be considered masculine. In this research I also discuss the role of the body on construction of masculinity. Data were collected via semi-structured interviews with six Czech male pole dancers over the age of 18 and examined...
The Politicization of Sexuality in South Africa
Ptáčníková, Iveta ; Kolářová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Jiroutová Kynčlová, Tereza (referee)
1 Abstract This diploma thesis deals with the topic of politicization of sexuality in South Africa in relation to sexual violence against children. Using qualitative content analysis the paper examines, how the "baby rape" phenomenon is described in South African media production and how it relates to the new democracy in the post-apartheid South Africa. Likewise, attention is paid to the issue of virginity testing, which is interpreted as a reaction to the "moral crisis" of the newly formed democratic nation. The examined issue is viewed in the wider context of social relations, therefore using an intersectional approach. The analytical aspect of the analysis includes the categories of race, gender, and sexuality. The intersectional concept analyzes the role of media representation in designing individual social categories and thus strengthening certain forms of oppression. The theoretical background of the work is based on black feminism and the Stanley Cohen's theory of moral panic. With analysing media representation it is examined the way the gender, sexuality, and race are studied and represented in order to answer the thesis question of how Western discourse intersects through these analytical categories. Keywords: media representation, qualitative content analysis, intersectionality, politization of...
Body under Supervision. Sexuality and Corporeality in Lovely green eyes novel.
Levy, Veronika ; Jiroutová Kynčlová, Tereza (advisor) ; Knotková, Blanka (referee)
The Diploma Thesis, Body under supervision. Corporeality and Sexuality in the novel Lovely green eyes, focuses on gender analysis of the literary work, which itself deals with gender relations and emphasizes a women's experience. The Lustig's novels setting is full of "feminine" themes and seems to be feminist at first glance. With a closer look you can find an intruder in the form of a "masculine" narrator, depicting the woman mainly as a body and a "thing to look at." The key concept of the thesis is a feminist literary criticism, using the resisting reader method by Judith Fetterley, that draws attention to the existence of a universal male perspective. As every text analysis is discours analysis as well, the other method I will apply will be the discours analysis method. For the analysis of narrator's point of view, I will apply Laura Mulvey's theory of voyeurism, to find out if the text does portray the female experience as erotic. Because of the strong textual interpellation, requiring readers to identify with the narrator's view, it is important to pay attention to the narrator's point of view and find the possibilities of refusing the interpellation of the text. As a starting point for the analysis of the female Holocaust experience, the thesis will focus on Gender aspects of the Holocaust...
The Concept of Violence in Kobold, a Novel by Radka Denemarková
Fridrichová, Jana ; Jiroutová Kynčlová, Tereza (advisor) ; Baslarová, Iva (referee)
The master's thesis The Concept of Violence in Kobold, a Novel by Radka Denemarková inquires into a representation of violence in the selected literary text, written by a Czech author, from the perspective of gender analysis. Integral part of the master's thesis is the writing style "feminine writing", in which the double-novel Kobold is written. The analysis is carried out in the context of feminist literary theories. The work is therefore based on the concept of resistant reading, which is inseparably associated with the name of Judith Fetterley, and which allows us to examine the text without being influenced by the author's concept. Other inseparable pillars of this master's thesis are the works of literary theorists Pam Morris, Elain Showalter, Jan Matonoha and Hélène Cixous. Keywords: gender, resistant reading, "feminine writing", violence
The Absence of a Woman in Language
Ciporanova, Pavla ; Knotková, Blanka (advisor) ; Jiroutová Kynčlová, Tereza (referee)
The central topic of the thesis is a (seemingly) paradoxical preposition of current feminist thinking that a woman in language and in our culture is absent. It is an all theoretical work that focuses on interpretation of key concepts of gender analysis related to the major concept of absence of a woman in language. It is trying to explain these concepts as deeply as possible and point at their interconnections and eventually their different conceptions, whereas the analysis proceeds primarily on the grounds of literary criticism. The work is structured into two thematically interconnected units. The first focuses on analysing key terms of contemporary poststructuralist philosophy and critical theory, particularly language, text, writing, discourse, power, gender identity and falogocentrism, with the aim to map the theoretical foundations of the concept of absence of a woman in language. The second unit concentrates on analysing the subversive potential of individual conceptions of women's writing, mainly of the theory of l'écriture feminine of Heléne Cixous, Luce Irigaray, Julia Kristeva and the concept of "women's writing" of Jan Matonoha, which all equally aspire to destabilize and problematize the functioning and the logic of the dominant discourse discussed in the first unit and thus create a...
Content Intersectional Analysis of the Fairy Tale King and King
Bernatová, Kristýna ; Sokolová, Věra (advisor) ; Jiroutová Kynčlová, Tereza (referee)
In the thesis I deal with the content intersectional analysis of the fairy tale book for preschoolers "Princ a princ" (King and King) by Linda de Haan and Stern Nijland. The book is unique for its tale which goes beyond heteronormative frame of canon of children's literature. The work is based on critical reading and interpretation of the book's text and illustration. The goal of this work is to examine what message is send to children through constructions and (re)presentations of the characters and tale and in what ways the book confirms and disconfirms stereotypes. The work is set into the frame of theories of socialization and acquiring an idenity. It deals with the role of children's literature and fairy tales in the proces of socialization and discusses questions of streotypes and its social consequences. The empirical part is based on qualitative content intersectional analysis in which I focus on construction and representation of particular intersectional characteristics. In the analytical part of the thesis I deal with these constructions and representations contained in the book and I discuss possible messages which the book Princ a princ offers to its readers focusing on these stereotypes. Key words: fairy tales, stereotypes, heteronormativity, intersectionallity, socialization,...
