Provázková, Jana ; Reifová, Irena (advisor) ; Miessler, Jan (referee)
The diploma thesis The Role of Travesty Show in Media Culture is concerned with a question if we can find some similarities between the way how media presents travesty show and the way how people think and talk about this kind of entertainment. As a research method I chose qualitative content analysis and questionnaire. Theoretical part focuses on explanation of technical terms, history of homosexuality, queer culture, queer theory, travesty show and history. In practical part I will create concrete codes from qualitative content analysis and from these codes I will make categories. Part of practical part is also a questionnaire. In the end of this thesis I will compare the codes from qualitative content analysis with the answers from the questionnaire. And based on this comparison I will find out if there exist any similarities between the way how media presents travesty show and the way how people think and talk about this kind of entertainment.

Mandatory vaccination in Czech media in the paternalism and risks context
Brejchová, Dominika ; Reifová, Irena (advisor) ; Nečas, Vlastimil (referee)
This thesis deals with presentation of mandatory vaccination in Czech media in the first half of 2017. The topic of mandatory vaccination becomes an important part of social discussion. In recent years, more voices have been heard against mandatory vaccination and against a currently set system. During the followed period, there was a public debate about change of the law, which would allow the compensation for persons with provable serious consequences of vaccination, there was also an active petition for voluntariness of vaccination against measles, mumps and rubella. In 2017, political parties within the election campaign to Chamber of Deputies clarified their attitude to the currently set system in the context of mandatory vaccination. This paper aimed to find out how the media construct the role of medicine in the social debate on mandatory vaccination. The task was to answer the question of how the paternalistic and partner models are applied to the theme of mandatory vaccination in the media coverage, and how is this topic communicated in the context of risks. The quantitative content analysis of sequences was used for this purpose. 15 media, counting dailies, radios, televisions, news websites and magazines, were included in the research sample, and 618 sequences were analysed.

Houdková, Lucie ; Reifová, Irena (advisor) ; Miessler, Jan (referee)

The editorial office is part of the Czech News Center media organization.

The diploma thesis aims to find out, whether this trend of convergence in media production has also affect on the editorial office in Blesk pro ženy. Another goal is to identify the professional identity of editors working for the lifestyle medium, and what does multiskilling and multimedia journalist mean in the context of Blesk pro ženy. Finally, the aim is to discover, what are the specifics in the work practice of an editorial staff composed of women. As for the methodology, a qualitative research was formed by interviews with editors from both printed and online platform, and also the method of participant observation was applied.
The use of media in men's prison
Šlejharová, Veronika ; Reifová, Irena (advisor) ; Bednařík, Petr (referee)
The aim of thesis The use of media in men's prison is to uncover the relationship between prisoners and media. Futhermore, by using the qualitative method of semi- structured interviews it was also the aim of this thesis to analyse how the prisoners use the media in the time-space framework of everyday life and if the media help to maintain day-to-day routines. This research could be of academic benefit, because this topic is not only largely neglected in the Czech Republic in general, but also in the prison area, especially when considering how to better resocialise prisoners through the utilisation of the media. Practical research is built upon a relevant theoretical basis: the history of the prison, sociological aspects of the prison, and regulation of the media in prison. In the next chapter, the media audience is described, together with an overview of important views of active access audience to media. The following chapter presents methods used when conducting the research, particularly Grounded Theory. The results of the research and interpretations thereof are presented in the final chapter along with respondents' descriptions, research goals and the course of interviews.
Media organization analysis - Seznam Zprávy
Hodboď, Vojtěch ; Reifová, Irena (advisor) ; Miessler, Jan (referee)
In the thesis I deal with the transformation of the media environment in the postmodern (fluid) period and the influence of these changes on the identity of the journalists. I look at the transformation of the media landscape from a variety of perspectives - for example from a convergence point of view, which I describe not only as a technological process, but above all as a cultural change that created fluid boundaries between various channels and formats, between production and consumption, organizations or the extent of the user's involvement in media communication. This has put media professionals into a situation they have to deal with. After organizing the theoretical backgrounds, I can, in the practical part, focus on how the media landscape is perceived by the journalists themselves and how it affects them. Based on in-depth interviews with journalists from the Seznam Zprávy, I first show the changes that journalists consider important, and then describe how these changes have been adapted over time. In the next part of the research I follow their current perception of the profession - especially how they perceive the decline in prestige and credibility of the profession, or how they think about the future of the profession. Finally, in the last part I deal with traditional and...

Koryntová, Barbora ; Reifová, Irena (advisor) ; Bednařík, Petr (referee)
The diploma thesis Romantic Movies and the Women's Vision of Partnership describes and discusses a study of two generations of women - mothers and their daughters - who watch this genre. Feminist film criticism theory, of which Laura Mulvey is considered to be the main representative, was selected as the foundation for this research. The aim of the research is to determine how the reception of romantic comedies helps to shape conceptions regarding intimate relationships for mothers and for their daughters. The qualitative method has been chosen as a relevant method for providing answers to the questions posed; meanwhile data is collected using semi-structured interviews. The subsequent analysis will primarily be based upon grounded theory, which shows itself to be the most appropriate method for producing the conclusion for this study.

The diploma thesis Construction of National Identity in Eurovision Song Contest: Case Study analyses the ways and forms of shaping the Czech national identity in the Eurovision Song Contest, the largest and most watched international festival of popular music in the world. In particular, the thesis aims to identify the manifestation of identity and self-presentation of the Czech Republic from the point of view of a media institution, in the national selection, in the form of the entry itself, in postcards and video clips as well as through voting and viewer ratings. These findings were attained by the combination of three research methods, namely semi-structured interviews with media professionals, qualitative content analyses of audio- visual materials and secondary data analysis. The theoretical framework presents basic concepts of identity formation and nationalism, and provides an in-depth presentation of the Eurovision Song Contest from geopolitical and sociocultural perspectives.
