Hošek, Jakub ; Randák, Jan (advisor) ; Vilímek, Tomáš (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with forms and strategies of interference of Secret police and opposition during 1970s and 1980s. Strategies are monitored both from the side of dissent and Secret police. In the first chapter the opposite manuals for contact with Secret police are introduced. These form basic relationship delimitation of dissent and Secret police from the view of opposition. In the second part of the first chapter the manuals are embedded into wider context of legal consciousness, which represented basic element of mutual interference of these two groups. In the second chapter the strategies and methods of Secret police, which were used in the battle against "the enemy within", are introduced.

Return of Baťa Lost: Post-socialist Transformation of Czech Cultural Memory
Babička, Martin ; Činátl, Kamil (advisor) ; Randák, Jan (referee)
After 1989, Czechoslovakia, or the Czech Republic, undergoes a transformation not only political or economic, but also a broader cultural or semiotic one. Collective remembering processes are entered by multiple agents who compete with, pass, complement or contradict each other. They further differ in the extent of their institutionalization, motivation, or way of representation. Legitimizing role of the past becomes an issue of negotiation, linked to the search for different collective identities and arrival of different ideologies. The case of Baťa can well render this process: at the beginning of the 1990s, Baťa's historical significance is changing; he starts to be used by diverse actors in diverse representations (news articles, memoirs, non-fiction and popularizing books, documentary films, public space) for diverse purposes; at the same time, Baťa is a synecdoche of remembering interwar Czechoslovakia and can thus become an instrument of constructed continuity. Mapping the forms of Baťa's representations in Czech historical culture after 1989 will point to broader changes and consequences of the transformation of Czech collective remembering in its heterogeneity. The paper proceeds primarily from memory studies concepts approaches of contemporary history to the study of post-socialism. Key...
Connexions between village population and the insane asylum in Horní Beřkovice in the years 1968-1989
Novotný, Ondřej ; Randák, Jan (advisor) ; Mücke, Pavel (referee)
Presented Bachelor Thesis Connexions between village population and the insane asylum in Horní Beřkovice in the years 1968-1989 is a contribution to the theme of Czechoslovak psychiatry and its relation to ordinary people during the period of normalization in Czechoslovakia. The aim of my work is to bring people's views closer to the institution, which have evolved and dynamically changed over the years. Based on interviews with narrators, residents of the village and former employees of the asylum that I did during field research, I describe their memories in contrast to the history of the asylum. Thus, the thesis deals with a rather subjective view of the entire history of the period under review and, besides the chronicle records, also brings the views of the respondents to the situation at that time.

After a short chapter concerning the development of the Vranov Castle, the thesis focuses on the life of this businessman and noble. The main target of the thesis is to describe the inner Pantheon according to the guided tour which is currently designed for the visitors at the castle.

Consequently, the summer residence that was opened in 1826 and represents the dominant feature of the Vranov ridge is described.

Šinkovec, Pavel ; Randák, Jan (advisor) ; Vilímek, Tomáš (referee)
Thesis abstract The thesis deals with expert discussions on economic criminality in Czechoslovakia during the 1970s and 1980s. The first chapter introduces the issue in the macroeconomic and social context and outlines the dual way in which the practice of illegal enrichment was depicted in contemporary film and TV-series production. The second chapter introduces dominant authoritative discourse and its concept of economic crime as a phenomenon alien to the socialist regime. This view has also been reflected in the legislative adjustment, as well as party and government measures to dispose of the undesirable phenomenon. The following third chapter focuses on contemporary criminology science as an expert community, whose primary focus was on analyzing and proposing measures to address various crime-related problems. The institutional integration of the Research Institute of Criminology, the main platform of criminological research in the state, to the Prosecutor General's Office, and the influence of Marxist science on criminological methodology, reflected the authoritative discourse into professional discussions. The content analysis of twenty selected texts of non- public professional provenance shows in several areas the extent to which the influence of ideology was noticeable and, on the contrary, how...
