Self-presentation of Young Adults on the Instagram
Broďáková, Apolena ; Wladyniak, Ludmila Maria (advisor) ; Mitrenga, David (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the process of self-presentation of young adults on the Instagram. The aim of this work is to explain how the process of self-presentation takes place and how it differs from self-presentation in real life. The work is based on the dramaturgical approach of Erving Goffman, which is expanded by the look of Joshua Meyrowitz, i.e. the influence of electronic media, which is presented in the theoretical part. The practical part is based on qualitative research. The research was conducted using semi-structured photo- elicitation interviews, which were analyzed by using a combination of closed and open coding. Based on these interviews, an analysis was conducted that concludes that self-presentation on Instagram's social network differs from that in real life in that it is more thoughtful and artificial, individuals share their photos depending on the responses which they receive from others. The spontaneity of everyday interactions is omitted, and the individuals presents themselves as a product, not as their identity.

Dvořáčková, Lenka ; Wladyniak, Ludmila Maria (advisor) ; De Oliveira Filho, José Hildo (referee)
This thesis researches aspects of (re)socialization and integration of unaccompanied female minor immigrants in Italy. The thesis aims to present an overview of the immigration situation in Italy. The focus is on Nigerian girls as Nigeria is the country of origin of the majority of unaccompanied female minors hosted in reception centres in Italy. There is a discussion on who these minors are and why they migrated. The theoretical background is based on a theory of Social Integration developed by Bosswick and Hackmann who defined Social Integration as being a four-dimensional process, consisting of structural, cultural, interactive and identificational aspects. This is an ethnographic study and was carried out though the mean of participant observation in a reception centre located in Sicily. The analysis of the field notes was done in accordance with the 4-demnsional model proposed by Bosswick and Hackmann.
Ice hockey as a symbol of national identity: the Czech society 20 years after the Nagano triumph
Burdová, Karolína ; Numerato, Dino (advisor) ; Wladyniak, Ludmila Maria (referee)
This bachelor's thesis deals with the process of building national identity through sport, specifically ice hockey. The thesis focuses primarily on the aspects contributing to the reproduction of the Czech national identity. Important aspects are mainly symbols, which remind us of the individual's belonging to the nation, as well as the media, which significantly help to the mythization of sports events. One of the events that played an important role in the formation of the Czech national identity is the 1998 Nagano Olympics. The success of the Czech hockey team in this tournament made part of the history twenty years ago; there are still many legacies of this triumph nowadays. The thesis is based on a research that combined several methods. I obtained the data through participant observation of the national team matches broadcasts, I also analysed documents that referred to the legacies of Czech victory, and I carried out semi-structured interviews with ice hockey fans. The interviews suggest that the victory of the Nagano hockey players, with the contribution of the media and banal nationalism, underwent the process of mythization, and thus played a significant role in the Czech national identity building.

Mertlík, Arnošt ; Cirklová, Jitka (advisor) ; Wladyniak, Ludmila Maria (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the characteristics of transnational links with Romanian Banat re- emigrants who were born in Banat and now live in the Czech Republic. Attention is paid to the migration theory of transnationalism, which is based on the assumption that migrants continue to maintain relations with their country of origin, which the author tries to prove even in the case of the Banat Czechs. In the theoretical part of the thesis, the reader is briefed on the historical context of migration to Banat and re-emigration to the Czech Republic. Thereafter, the reader is familiar with the theory of transnationalism and its concepts. The heart of the thesis is qualitative research described in the practical part, in which the author carried out in-depth semi- structured interviews. Based on the analysis of these interviews, the work concludes that transnational identity of Banat's Czechs is uncertain. However, they as transmigrants form transnational networks beyond the borders that create a transnational field and keepkeep the Czechs in Banat in constant contact.
