The phenomenon is presented in the context of chosen concepts related to web 2.0. Several chapters focussed generally on the development and present state of podcasting are devoted to the situation in the Czech Republic. The research part then provides insight into the present situation from the point of view of independent podcast creators, with whom half-structured interviews were carried out.

Further results of the analysis concern motivation of the authors to listen to podcasts of other creators, their view of the present state of affairs in the sphere of podcasting in the Czech Republic, and their...

Veselá, Gabriela ; Krobová, Tereza (advisor) ; Vochocová, Lenka (referee)
In recent years, sexting has become common part of online communication. This thesis aspires to analyse this media phenomen and sexting behavior among online users. One of the aim of the thesis is to find out if gender differences among online sexual communication occur. For purpose of this thesis, I used quantitative method of research and analysed data extracted from the questionnare distributed among internet users with use of statistics. Research did not prove gender difference in frequency of sexting, however men were more open to sexting outside of stable relationship. Although research did not confirm presumption suggesting that women deal with greater negative impact of sexting, women displayed higher concerns about risk and stigma related to online sexual communication. These concerns could be effected by gender stereotypes in sexual behavior sustained by society.
Media Construction of Kurdish women's militia in CT, CNN, AJE and RT
Slezák, Prokop ; Vochocová, Lenka (advisor) ; Krobová, Tereza (referee)
The diploma thesis The media construction of the Kurdish women's militia in CT, CNN, AJE and RT deals with the media coverage of all female Kurdish militias in three world media and one domestic. The aim of the thesis is to allow readers a comprehensive approach to the studied media in covering topics related to Kurdish fighters with the use of a qualitative method known as interpretive reading. The author has included TV stations, each of which represents one dominant region - CNN American, AJE Middle Eastern, RT Russian and Czech TV domestic. Existing academic papers often focus on media fascination with Kurdish fighters, labeling them as "tough warriors", describing them as an unusual phenomenon in the territory of the patriarchal Middle East. This work focuses mainly on comparing the degree of fascination and gender stereotyping in media coverage of each media house. Kurdish women's militias have been the center of media attention in connection with the war with the so-called Islamic State, which has captured large areas in Syria and Iraq since 2014. The main events that raised media attention around the Kurdish women fighters were the battle of the city of Kobani in northern Syria and the assault on the Yazidi community in the northwest of Iraq at Mount Sindjar. In both cases, Kurdish women became an...
Health myths Promoted by Online Media
Jeníková, Anna ; Vochocová, Lenka (advisor) ; Zezulková, Markéta (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with current media myths about health and the human body. Dissemination of myths among the general public has been facilitated by the emergence of new media that allow a multi-layered debate across social groups. Online content offers a quick source and a wide range of answers or inspiration on health and human body issues, usually without the need to indicate where the information comes from. I will focus on the discussion about detoxification of the human body in life-style online media for women. Contemporary discussions on this topic show that easy access to information has prompted a wave of so-called "self-healing" described as a situation in which people consult their health problems primarily with online content, and then, if at all, with their GP or with another expert. Although some myths have been scientifically refuted, they still have their "proponents" who can represent legitimate knowledge. The very word "myth" or "half-truth" or "superstition" is discursively specific, burdened and represents an ideology. In many health and human body issues, there are many arguments of both parties (both mainstream and alternative medicine). I will observe this extreme polarization in the diploma thesis that is neither a defense of expert votes nor "experts by...
Sama doma: case study with emphasis on gender stereotypes
Halamásek, Šimon ; Vochocová, Lenka (advisor) ; Miessler, Jan (referee)
This master thesis titled "Sama doma: a case study with emphasis on gender stereotypes" focuses on the way gender stereotypes are manifested in the live publicistic talk show Sama doma. Based on the analysis of selected episodes, a conducted interview with the show's head editor and with the support of literature, this thesis shows, that gender stereotypes are indeed a part of the content. The presence of these stereotypes is noted among the topics chosen, guests invited, in the absence of a male and also in the speech of moderators. The speech is highlighted as the main source of gender stereotypes in this show and is linked to internalised sexism. Its specific manifestations are thematically categorised into several subchapters. The show has been criticised in the past for stereotypical depictions of women and the research findings of this thesis are therefore compared to the criticism as well. The thesis concludes that even though this show broadcasted on Czech Television has succeeded in shifting the way it deals with gender roles to a less stereotypical one, we can still find manifestations that support the rigid nature of these structures.
