Marinovová, Klára ; Kasáková, Zuzana (advisor) ; Menclová, Barbora (referee)
Racial tensions in UK escalating to violent conflicts from early 50ʼs on, led to series of changes in British legislation. Migration was systematically restricted, and regulations of entry were becoming much more severe. Discrimination of Caribbean and Asian immigrants in labor market, housing and education was extensive. Every attempt to address racial discrimination on the level of legislation was inefficient and hardly enforceable. Case study presented is situated in this social-political context. It is focused on second generation of afro-Caribbean minority in 70ʼs and its reaction to expulsion from British society, denying British identity and its fight against oppression through music and especially through language used itself. Jamaican Creole and in British, most notably in London surroundings, on Creole based system of adaptations called London Jamaican became significant feature of ethnic identification of afro-Caribbean (black) adolescents. This feature was used in conversations almost always through phenomenon of code-switching, where Creole features used were linked to attempt to define the speaker against dominant white society and oppressive system. Using of the features was often purposeful, because second generation of migrants was fully competent in using standard British English....

Comparison of crime organisations Cosa Nostra and `Ndrangheta
Denemark, Jan ; Mejstřík, Martin (advisor) ; Menclová, Barbora (referee)
The theme of my bachelor thesis is a comparison of the organized crime, especially the study of the structures of criminal organizations such as Cosa Nostra and 'ndrangheta. Because these structures have a significant difference in their style of building their own hierarchies and they are working quite differently in general, I would like to focus on and answer the crucial question in my thesis, to what extent these differences affect the fact that 'ndrangheta is now the most important mafia in Italy instead of Cosa Nostra. The fact that Cosa Nostra and 'ndrangheta are so different in their own structures, their detail comparison is offered in every part of their organization. Besides the description of the social base and the historical evolution which we cannot skip and besides the comprehensive exploration of the development context I would like to focus in my second part of the thesis on the fact how the differences between them influence the major decisions. I will describe especially the difference between the last approximately forty years because on this era we can easily see the difference between the success of these two organizations. While Cosa Nostra is nowadays a shadow of her historical fame 'ndrangheta in this period took over and now this organization is the number one when it...
Reflection of Basque autonomy in Spanish and Basque media
Lengyelová, Patricie ; Mejstřík, Martin (advisor) ; Menclová, Barbora (referee)
This bachelor thesis analyses the way in which the centrally oriented Spanish media El País and El Diario Vasco portrayed the autonomous tendencies in the Basque Country, focusing on the referendum on the Statute of Autonomy in 1979. The aim is to give analysis of published articles on this subject in the methodology of discourse analysis. In the theoretical introduction the thesis defines terms such as regionalism, nationalism, and others. The contextualization is characterized by the political-historical characteristics of the development of the Basque Country. In the analytical part the thesis focuses on the period of three months before the referendum until the ratification of the Statute of Autonomy in Congress and the Senate. The main analysed articles were editorials published by both journals, as well as subjective elements contained in articles on Basque autonomy. The thesis reflects on the influence of media on social consensus and on their objectivity and concludes that although both diaries supported the creation of Basque autonomy, the regional newspaper El Diario Vasco emphasized its neutral stance and tolerance to both sides, for and against the autonomy. El País, on the other hand, strongly condemned the parties that were refusing to vote in favor of autonomy and propagated the approval of...

Kolínová, Kristýna ; Tomalová, Eliška (advisor) ; Menclová, Barbora (referee)
A monument known as the Valley of the Fallen is located about fifty kilometers from Madrid. The complex was built by General Franco as a memorial to the victims of the Civil War. After his death, Franco himself was buried here in the basilica caved into the rock. The remains of the dictator situated at such a monumental site together with thousands of victims of the Civil War are, according to many, an unresolved issue for democratic Spain. As many meanings are assigned to the site, the debate about the Valley of the Fallen includes other topics as well. The thesis presents and analyzes the politics of memory and debate on the contested site of memory Valley of the Fallen from the beginning of the Zapatero government in 2004 until the end of the Rajoy government in May 2018. Based on the typology of mnemonic actors of M. Bernhard and J. Kubik, the thesis identifies and classifies national institutional actors participating in this debate. Transnational actors, as well as attitudes of the Spanish civil society, are also mentioned. Therefore, the thesis connects three areas of the collective memory studies: sites of memory, politics of memory and mnemonic actors.

Loužecký, Martin ; Menclová, Barbora (advisor) ; Mejstřík, Martin (referee)
The bachelor thesis entails the changes that Portugal has gone through from the beginning of the sixties in regard to the war that had broken out within the Portuguese colonies. Moreover, the work compares the new decade with the period from the end of the fifties. Main focus is given to the situation of the regime called "New State", once the war started and the socioeconomic changes the sixties have experienced. Colonial War provided a chance for the authoritarian prime minister Salazar to unify the attitude of the society and strengthen propaganda by changing the current colonial politics. Salazarism was obsolete and non-progressive and therefore unwanted before the war, but at a later time again gained a numerous base of supporters. It was triggered by a new wave of propaganda, together with Salazar's reforms. Portugal also noticed a change in the sixties within the field of international politics. While the associated countries including traditional allies of Portugal such as The Great Britain or United States opposed the colonial politics in the fifties, the relations got better again in the sixties. On the other hand, international organizations including the United Nations which Portugal was a member of literally condemned imperialism. The goal of this thesis is to explain the status quo in...
