Mikeš, Marek ; Tirala, Martin (advisor) ; Paulovič, František (referee) ; Löwensteinová, Miriam (referee)
This thesis deals with popular paraphrases of classical Japanese literature in the Edo period (1600- 1868). It analyses creative rewritings of a famous Heian tale Genji monogatari by popular authors of the Edo period, primarily Nise Murasaki inaka Genji by Ryūtei Tanehiko (1783-1842), which is one of the most successful works of Japanese early modern literature. The aim of this thesis is, utilizing elements of narrative analysis, to identify and interpret creative strategies applied by Tanehiko and his predecessors (Kogame Masuhide, Miyako no Nishiki and Okumura Masanobu) in works based on Genji monogatari and to find out what the relation was between their works and their Heian model, and if and to what extent Tanehiko's work was a unique occurrence between popular paraphrases of classical Japanese literature.
Postal system in Korea between 1884 and 1905
Kocinová, Kateřina ; Löwensteinová, Miriam (advisor) ; Zemánek, Marek (referee)
This master's thesis deals with the topic of modernization of communication means in Korea during the late 19th century, namely with the intruduction, organizational structure and development process of the West-inspired postal system in 1884-1905. It further examines the extent of actual utility, accessibility and importance of postal services from the perspective of the then Korean society and government. This work is divided into two parts. The first one covers approximately the first half of 1880's, exploring the situation regarding the very brief existence of the first Korean post office, Ujŏngch'ongguk. This part also briefly deals with the alternative medium of modern communication, telegraph. It was, however, not until more than 10 years after the abolishment of the first post office that Korean postal services were resumed. In the second part of the thesis I inquire into the postal system's development throughout the period of so-called kabo reforms (1894-96) and the Korean Empire (1897-1905).

Repatriation of Koreans from Japan after World War
Andrýsková, Adéla ; Löwensteinová, Miriam (advisor) ; Zemánek, Marek (referee)
(in English): This master's thesis focus on the repatriation of Koreans from Japan after World War II. 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. As the waiting time for boarding on a repatriation ship was getting longer and longer, majority of Koreans could not wait anymore.

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.

Key words Korean war, propaganda language, collocation, collocability, valence, 50s, propaganda, aggression.
