The collective memory of the forcibly ejected inhabitants: The oral history about the 2nd World War from Neveklov and its neighbourhoods
Štěpánková, Jana ; Šalanda, Bohuslav (advisor) ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (referee) ; Janeček, Petr (referee)
This Dissertation is the benefit to studying of the questions of the oral history of forcibly ejected inhabitants of Neveklov and its neighbourhoods during the 2nd World War. About this region, there exists authentic testimony and this territory is fixed in the collective memory. The oral history is a highly valued literary source. Its value is in the authenticity, which is characterized by selectivity and represents another point of view. The essay brings the unique opportunity to get acquainted with witnesses of the wartime. At present this testimony is unknown or is being forgotten in the offical documents. The essay follows the researches of Jaromír Jech from the middle of the last century. If we compare the results of both researches, we get the view of the importance of forcible displacement of Czech inhabitants in a demarcated region. Result of this work is the analysis of the results obtained with the help of the modern approaches that are based on the method of the oral history, which is a part of the qualitative research, with an emphasis on general objectives and context. The essay brings new testimonies of events that have not been presented and published yet. It also simultaneously maps over the current state, i.e. the reflection of the forcible war persecution on the present times and...

Romany people in Romanian culture
Schneiderová, Andrea ; Našinec, Jiří (advisor) ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (referee)
This thesis deals with the Roma, one of the largest and most influential cultural minority groups in Romania. Their culture has been part of the country for centuries, and consequently they have had a significant impact on Romanian culture and society. Not in all cases the influence is positive, therefore the diploma thesis will deal with individual branches (cases / parts) separately. The first part discusses the history of the Roma since their departure from India, through their arrival in Romania in the 14th century, until today. The thesis will describe the current situation of the Roma, both from a cultural, linguistic and social point of view. The following chapters will focus on craft, language, literature, and other arts and their significance in the Romanian environment. In some cases, it may be the work of the non- Romani, the Roma being the subject of drawings, photographs, literature and music. In another case, they are the Roma themselves, their language, culture and art, which left a trace in Romania. Whether or whether not the Roma have influenced Romania examines a questionnaire that was submitted to Romanians of different age and gender. The results of the questionnaire are analyzed and compared with the facts resulting from the diploma thesis.
Turkish Minority in Sarajevo after 1995
Blinka, Jakub ; Žíla, Ondřej (advisor) ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (referee)
In my thesis I will provide the introduction of the present Turkish community in Sarajevo. I will research not only the motivation of Turks to migrate, but also their relation to the Bosnian state, their social and economical background, their uses of language and their cultural habits. The thesis will be divided in to three parts. In the first section I will summarize the historical development of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the heritage that remained in the region after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. In the second part I will outline present political and economical relations between Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina, after 1995. The strengthening of mutual relations between these two states leads to the begining of the Turkish migration to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The third and final part will be dedicated to the fieldwork of the community itself. The question of the count of the community cannot be supported by exact numbers and offical statistics. Despite this fact that the results of the last census were posted, the box for ethnicity and nationality only provides an option of three Bosnian constitutional ethnics, excluding all other national or ethnical options. The knowledge of the community presented here is primarily based on the results of fieldwork, because presently there are no sources,...
Theme of the Croatian-Serbian co-existence in the Dalmatian inland region in selected novels of the second half of 20th century
Mikolandová, Iva ; Nedvědová, Milada (advisor) ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (referee)
The thesis pictures mutual relations of Croats and Serbs in the Dalmatian inland region (in the period from the Second World War until present) in selected novels of two Croatian and one Serbian novelist. To be specific, the thesis analyses following writings from the second half of the 20th century - Anđeli lijepo pjevaju (1953) from Vojin Jelić, Kostolomi (1960) and Klačina (1970) from Jozo Laušić and Braća po materi (1987) from Jovan Radulović. It also focuses on each of the authors' position towards respective theme and compares problematic facts associated with this culturally specific Croatian region. The thesis deals with denial of recognition of nationality and belonging to other culture and it aims on denial of certain problems of Serbian authors of Dalmatia. The thesis takes into account other Serbian and Croatian authors as well and includes them in the analyses. The thesis mentions for example Vladan Desnica, Vjekoslav Kaleb, Dinko Šimunović, Mirko Božić and Ivan Raos, whose writings describes co-existence of both nationalities, studied region and its people as well. However, those authors and their titles are not to be considered as the core of this final thesis. When analyzing the novel of Radulović Braća po materi, this part of the thesis also concerns the film processing together...

Dobra, Robert ; Vinš, Přemysl (advisor) ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (referee)
(in English): The thesis concentrates on an analysis of how foreigners (travellers, ethnographers and other subjects) perceived the situation, life and customs of the northern Albanian mountain tribes on the verge of 19th and 20th century. In order to create a sufficient overview of the topic, contemporary sources are used to maximum extent, primarily those written by the forementioned subjects (travelogues, scientific works), which bear witness to the life, customs and position of the tribes during the period, are used to maximum extent. The thesis presents the core phenomena connected to the topic and shows, which ones were reffered to by the foreigners and in which way.
Development and Perception of the Sinjska Alka
Oľhová, Ivona ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Nedvědová, Milada (referee)
! Abstract ! This paper presents Sinjska alka, a knight's jousting tournament that has been held for the last three centuries in the town of Sinj. The paper aims to enlighten even a layman as to not only the particularities of the tournament, but also the region where it is set: the region of Cetina. In this paper, I have strived to put the development of the Sinj alka itself into a broader historical context. It not only pays special attention to the proceedings of the tournament proper, but it also focuses on the accompanying elements (the festive procession, Alka costumes, Alka tournament arms and organization of the Alka Tournament Society). The paper is supplemented with historical and contemporary photos that should bring the visual aspect of this famous Croatian tournament closer. !
Srebrenica massacre and its diverse perception in scientific literature
Šanca, Filip ; Žíla, Ondřej (advisor) ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (referee)
Srebrenica massacre remains unexplained in many aspects. Views of authors on it vary vastly in almost all respects. The tragedy was misused on purpose as a tool of propaganda. Not only the number of victims, but also the facts alone were altered according to one's particular interests. Comprehensive treatise on the diverse perception probably does not exist; and if, it is purposely distorted again. The aim of my work is not to undoncitionally determine which of the sides were right and which of them considerably changed the history by its uncritical interpretation. I am not going to try to examine the act itself, but the views on it. Secondary literature will thus be the main source of my work. First of all, I am going to outline the historical and political context of Srebrenica massacre. Main topic and core of my work is going to be analysed in the second part, where I am going to focus on the perception of massacre in scientific literature itself. That is in point of view of the participants themselves and of the states of International Comunity that analysed the case from afar. My aim is to examine the particular views and to compare them.

Nushiová, Suzana ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Vinš, Přemysl (referee)
The thesis looks into Albanian folklore. It familiarizes the reader with the character of a witch in Albanian environment throughout fairytales, stories and other genres of folk literature. The main focus is on the role of a witch in the stories and its general description. The main goal of my theses is to compare this perception with other Balkan states and find out, how much the imaginations about a witch in Balkan states differ or contrariwise correspond. Simultaneously I will try to analyze in which kinds of folklore the character of a witch occurs. Finally the focus will lead to the reception of the character of a witch in neighbouring areas and also in Albanian artistic literature and modern life.
Reflection of archaeologized landscape elements in ethnographic resources
Pohunek, Jan ; Šalanda, Bohuslav (advisor) ; Janeček, Petr (referee) ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (referee)
Reflection of archaeologized landscape elements in ethnographic resources Mgr. Jan Pohunek Abstract: This thesis discusses contemporary folklore interpretations of meanings of abandoned and decaying buildings and other types of artificial immovable monuments. Mutual relations between these interpretations and modes of place usage are also being observed. The research is based on ethnographic survey focused on Czech republic and including primarily interviews with various respondents and crtitical analysis of written, electronic and audiovisual resources. Aside from general part of the research, several sites were chosen as a more in-depth example of formation of meanings belonging to an archaeologizing place, a complex proces influenced by the history of the site, its physical appearance and other attributes. An attached catalogue includes collected contemporary legends related to abandoned places and a system of categorization of their motifs is offered. This collection is further discussed, especially with regard to ways how character of a location and activities that take place here influence appearance of various motifs. In general, it can be said that different abandoned places are also perceived differently and there are groups of motifs that are more characteristic for certain categories of places....
