Jan Quirin Jahn and the dictionary of the history of art? (Beginning of the history of the art in Bohemia)
Marešová, Jana ; Prahl, Roman (advisor) ; Machalíková, Pavla (referee) ; Mádl, Martin (referee)
Práce je věnována osobnosti malíře a osvícenského erudity v jedné osobě, Janu Jakubovi Quirinu Jahnovi (1739-1802) a jeho nedokončenému projektu dějin umění založeném na životopisech umělců. Protože součástí práce je také komentovaná edice, je rozdělena na dvě části - teoretickou studii a komentovanou edici. Teoretická část sumarizuje vývoj biografií umělců od antiky až do konce 18. století v Evropě. Další kapitoly jsou pak zaměřeny na osobnost Jana Jakuba Quirina Jahna a jeho rukopis o dějinách umění. Tento rukopis se skládá ze tří částí - úvodní historické studie, výběru životopisů umělců, kteří do Jahnovy současnosti působili v Čechách a z ukázky medailonů, které Jahn shromažďoval excerpcí ze zahraniční literatury, doplňoval archivním výzkumem a nakonec je řadil do složek podle panování.

Marešová, Jana ; Dvořáková, Markéta (advisor) ; Županič, Jan (referee)

The emphasis is put on the description of the origin of the highland games within the clan society, subsequent marginalisation of the highland traditions and its "rebirth". The work also deals with the development of the modern highland games from the end of the 18th century to the present. The description of the current highland games' disciplines is also included. At the end of the thesis the culture identity is defined and it is applied on the phenomenon of the highland games.

Human preference to animal species and its impact on species conservation
Marešová, Jana ; Frynta, Daniel (advisor) ; Komárek, Stanislav (referee) ; Sedláček, František (referee)
The dissertation thesis deals with human aesthetic preference to other species and its anthropological and conservation aspect. The aesthetic preference to animal species has rarely been systematically studied before and quantitative analyses, especially on a fine taxonomic scale did not exist. On the other hand, it was known that attractive species often receive more support for their conservation. From these simple facts rose the idea to test human aesthetic preference to snake species (and consequently to species across major vertebrate taxa) and use this quantified preference to explain the conservation effort devoted to captive breeding worldwide (measured as size of zoo populations). We confirmed that the perceived attractiveness (preference and/or species' body size) succesfully predicts the size of zoo populations across mammal, bird and reptile taxa. On contrary, we found no effect of the IUCN listing of the species. To find out whether we work with Czech students' preference only or we may generalize to other populations, we carried out the same experiment to determine human preference to boas and pythons in eight cultures of five continents. Despite profound differences of the studied ethnics, we revealed a considerable agreement. Moreover, we found an agreement between pre-school...
Putting Chopin and the Rez together: multicultural features of Tomson Highway's work
Marešová, Jana ; Kolinská, Klára (advisor) ; Jindra, Miroslav (referee)
The thesis titled Putting Chopin and the Rez Together: Multicultural Features in Tomson Highway's Work focuses on the work of renowned Native Canadian playwright, novelist, and musician Tomson Highway. The paper analyses those features of his writing and music that express the idea of multiculturalism and hybridity. It discusses the nature of the characters in his work and the image of the central character of Native mythology, the trickster. The analysis of dramatic techniques and music shows the way Highway combines his Euro-Canadian education and Native sensibility. Highway supports and promotes the notion of multiculturalism by his work. It has helped him to find personal as well as creative independence.
Phobia and fear evoked by snakes
Průšová, Lucie ; Frynta, Daniel (advisor) ; Maresova, Jana (referee)
The fear of snakes is deeply within humans and primates from past times, when snakes were the first predators known to humans and primates. Snake is negative incentive for humans, humans are even able to note this stimul earlier than neutral ones or other kinds of stimuli, and moreover the brain is able to note this stimuli unconsciously (even though this stimuli is masked). The fear of snakes is very interesting topic, which can be investigated in the case of humans as in the case of animals. In the case of humans, there are more methods to be used to investigate it. These are questionnaires, tests with living snakes, furthermore pictures and photographs with snakes. The tests with living snakes serve to find out the intensity of phobia and if it is possible to decrease or suppress this phobia by contact with snakes and change in thoughts. The fear can be gained by a lot of manners. These are classical conditioning, modelling, negative information and non-associative fear acquisition. The specific question to be solved in this paper is the fear of coralsnakes and their mimics as with these the human has the shortest co-evolution. Key words: Fear of snakes, measuring of fear, classical conditioning, modelling, negative information and non- associative fear acquisition, coralsnake, mimic
