Andrýsková, Adéla ; Löwensteinová, Miriam (advisor) ; Zemánek, Marek (referee)

The repatriation process was in many aspects more complicated than it could seem to be at the first sight. A hindrance to the repatriation of more than 2 million Koreans, who were left behind in Japan after the end of war, was vague politics of Supreme Command for Allied Powers (SCAP). SCAP did not possess any specific plan considering Koreans and other foreigners in Japan after its arrival to the Japanese archipelago. Therefore, the government of Japan was the one who seized upon the Korean repatriation and began sending ships from Japan's islands loaded with Korean laborers and soldiers, who were living testimony of its war crimes and a thread for Japanese public order. The government of Japan, however, was limited by number of ships, which it could provide for transportation of Koreans, and by number of available ports.

Bartošová, Lucie ; Zemánek, Marek (advisor) ; Löwensteinová, Miriam (referee)
An Analysis of Early Japanese Authors' Studies on Korean Religions Abstract Korean religion has been a matter of interest of many researchers not only from the western countries, but from neighboring Japan as well. Many researches have been conducted during the period of Japanese occupation of Korea. However, their political involvement has often been disputable and thus marginalized and deprecated by the Koreans. In this thesis I deal with Japanese research of Korean religion and I focus on the work of Akiba Takashi and Akamatsu Chijo, whose research is among the most important ones due to its depth and expertise to this day. I analyze parts about shamans' names and their geographical differences in more detail, as well as shamanistic rituals and the tools used.

The main topic in presented thesis is the question of nature of productive models and patterns in creating fictional manifestation of this war. Key words Korean war, propaganda language, collocation, collocability, valence, 50s, propaganda, aggression.

Kubík, Lukáš ; Glomb, Vladimír (advisor) ; Löwensteinová, Miriam (referee)
(in English): Since its foundation, the kingdom of Chosŏn has been culturally and politically connected with the Ming China from which Chosŏn adopted written codes, penal system and administrative structure. At the same time, the legal system of the two states was not identical for various reasons. This differentiation has been increasing over the course of several centuries. The 18th century saw the greatest rise in terms of criminal legislation, and some of today's scholars view this period as the advent of humanism and enlightenment in Korea. This diploma thesis deals with the historical development of criminal law and written codes during the Chosŏn period (14th - 18th century), and with the issue of the Korean state penal system as it was at the end of the 18th century.
