Calligraphic Inscriptions on Middle Eastern Metalwork
Hartman, Tomáš ; Malečková, Jitka (advisor) ; Pospíšilová, Dagmar (referee)
Islamic ritual bowls are one of the most overlooked phenomena of Islamic metalwork. Their design is comprised of a mixture of textual, geometric and mystical patterns and symbols. The main goal of this thesis is to examine, describe and interpret these elements to the highest extent possible. This work is based on the collection of National Museum - Náprstek Museum of Asian, African and American Cultures that is the owner of a collection of fourteen bowls whose origin is ranging from 13th to 20th century.

Somatic Phrasemes in Turkish and Czech
Michálková, Kateřina ; Malečková, Jitka (advisor) ; Bielický, Viktor (referee)
This master thesis deals with "somatisms" (i.e. names of human body parts) in language. It uses the example of two distant and unrelated languages - Czech and Turkish - to explore conceptualization of human body and its parts in phraseology, and possible differences that may occur across languages and cultures. This thesis consists of two key parts: a quantitative comparison and a qualitative comparison. In the first part, the frequency of individual somatisms and respective words is measured and compared in phraseology of both languages. The second part is a qualitative analysis of head - the most frequent somatism in both Czech and Turkish. The analysis and comparison are based on the perspective of cognitive linguistics, more specifically on the approach called "linguistic picture of the world" and related "profile theory".
Women and local power: processes of mobilization and female political pathways in Turkey
Drechselová, Lucie ; Malečková, Jitka (advisor) ; Dulong, Delphine (referee) ; Massicard, Elise (referee)
Women and local power: processes of mobilization and female political pathways in Turkey Type: Doctoral dissertation Author: Lucie Drechselová Institutions: Charles University and EHESS, Paris Year: 2018 Abstract This thesis focuses on the issue of women's under-representation in local politics in contemporary Turkey. The intermediary level of politics - party presence in municipalities - is studied with a double approach distinguishing among political parties (AKP, CHP, MHP, and the pro-Kurdish HDP & DBP) as well as among cities (Izmir, Trabzon and Diyarbakır). The Anglo-American body of literature in political sociology is put into dialogue with the French research in the fields of sociology of mobilization, of political elites and of institutions. Gendered perspective is transversal to the whole thesis. Field work was done in 2014, 2015 and 2016 in Izmir, Trabzon and Diyarbakır and took the form of non-participant observation and semi-directed interviews with two hundred female municipal councilors and women holding an intra- party office. Conceptually, seeing parties as heterogeneous entities allows us to study exchanges that take place within the party hierarchy. The place and role of women in the candidate selection processes questions the artificial separation between the "local" and the "national"....

Lachič,skryté dědictví Ázerbájdžánu
Wood, Galina ; Malečková, Jitka (advisor) ; Saxena, Siddharth (referee) ; Oberfalzerová, Alena (referee)
- Galina Wood, 2015 Lahij, the Living Heritage of Azerbaijan This research explores the various aspects of identity pertaining to the traditional, bilin- gual mountainous community of Lahij. Azerbaijan is little known and its minorities are largely under-researched. Previous work done by Russian and Azerbaijani linguists described grammatical features of the Tat language, and SIL-led linguistic field surveys by J. Clifton addressed some sociolinguistic attitudes, yet the Tat people, particularly the Lahij people, remain unknown. This is the first time the Lahij community, which preserved a relict Southwest Iranian language and a unique culture, is a topic of inter-disciplinary research in English language. Resources such as Russian and Azeri literature and Western works dealing with related dis- ciplines and issues (historical, socio-linguistical, anthropological etc.) are discussed, aiming to reach a balanced and informed perspective. To present the nuances and dynamics of the emic (insider) versus etic (outsider) points of view, anthropological methods of participant observation, structured interview and narrative analysis are used. Research was done while residing long term in Azerbaijan, and spending significant amounts of time in Lahij. The sociolinguistic climate of Post-Soviet nation...

Knápková, Michaela ; Malečková, Jitka (advisor) ; Kučera, Petr (referee)
This thesis examines the way in which the United States of America and the State of Israel are represented in Turkish internet press. The newspapers that have been chosen for the analysis are Zaman and Hürriyet, which are two of the most read newspapers in the country, but at the same time differ from each other in a significant way. The first part concentrates on the history of the Turkish press and also outlines the general characteristics of the chosen newspapers.

The final part consists of an analysis of the newspaper articles that were published on the official internet websites of the abovementioned periodicals. The aim of this thesis is to examine to what extent the editorial line of both periodicals and the general ideology behind them influences the style of the articles and the criteria which decide the content and selection of these articles. In the last part, I shall also compare and contrast the image of the USA and Israel that Zaman and Hürriyet present their readers.

Meeting of the East and the West in the Works of Ahmed Midhat and Rifa'a al-Tahtawi
Hartman, Tomáš ; Kučera, Petr (advisor) ; Malečková, Jitka (referee)
(in English): The main goal of my thesis is to find out the methods that were used by two middle-eastern authors, Rifāʿa aṭ-Ṭahṭāwī and Ahmet Midhat, to present the image of the West to their readers based on analysis of their works. In this thesis I am trying to reach this goal by topic analysis of their source works in the first place. In the second part of this work I included the description of life-fates of these two authors and circumstances under which they realized their journeys to Paris. This part of my thesis is based mainly on secondary literature, but is amended by quotations from source works. The main contribution of this work is based on the fact that this is first work of its kind which compiles works of these two authors. At the same time this work presents the image of the West from two different perspectives that differ a lot from each other and yet provide us with image of the same kind.
