The "völkische Weltanschauung" of the German Gymnastic Unions and the Strategies of its Propagation
Klement, Martin ; Stellner, František (advisor) ; Skřivan, Aleš (referee) ; Kaiserová, Kristina (referee)
In the Austrian-Hungarian, ethnically German gymnastic unions of "Deutscher Turnerbund" and "Turnkreis Deutsch-Österreich", between the late 1880s and 1918 there was an officially propagandized set of racial, nationalistic and religiously-ethical opinions known in the German literature as the "völkische Weltanschauung". This propaganda was also seen after the World War I in the Austrian union of "Deutscher Turnerbund 1919", in the union of "Deutscher Turnverband" which used to exist in the Czechoslovakia and in some segments of the German union of "Deutsche Turnerschaft". Using the newest search results, archival sources and until now predominantly ignored literature (e.g. unions periodicals, educational booklets and novels), this dissertation applies the analytic-synthetic and comparatively orientated method to answer the questions, which ideas the "völkische Weltanschauung" was consisted of, who formulated them and how they have been developed over time. Special attention is payed to the principles and effectiveness of the educational institutions (the so- called institution of the "Dietwarte"), fiction literature, periodicals and festivities in the process of the indoctrination of the young and old gymnasts. For the breadth of themes and the distinction between the official unions...

Spain during the Reign of Charles III of Spain, 1759-1788
Vencálková, Bára ; Valkoun, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Stellner, František (referee)
This Bachelor thesis deals with the situation in Spain during the reign of Charles III of Bourbon, the Spanish king from 1759 to 1788. As a King of Naples, he first had to abandon his Italian throne in order to become the Spanish king after the death of his half-brother Ferdinand VI. During his almost thirty-years rule, Charles III and his ministers aimed to implement a set of political, administrative and economic reforms in Spain as well as in her colonies. Although the reforms did not always reach success, Spain flourished. Charles III also got involved in foreign affairs, especially in the Mediterranean and Atlantic regions. However, his foreign policy did not bring many long-term benefits.

The Portrayal of the Czechoslovak coup d'état of February 1948 in Contemporary Press
Bartůňková, Eliška ; Stellner, František (advisor) ; Szobi, Pavel (referee)
This bachelor thesis examines the representation of the Czechoslovak February 1948 coup in Rudé právo and Svobodné noviny. Its aim is to find out the difference between the periodicals and the possible change of Svobodné noviny after the replacement of the editor-in-chief during the coup. Using Krippendorff's quantitative content analysis, I find out that before the editor- in-chief's exchange, the newspaper differed. While Svobodné noviny were objective, Rudé právo contained engaged journalism. After the exchange, the differences faded away. The plurality of opinions was no longer present in Svobodné noviny, and the opposition was displayed negatively, as was the case of Rudé právo.
