VYŠNÝ, Peter: State, Law, and Everyday Life in Aztec Tenochtitlan. Dissertation. Charles University, Faculty of Arts, Centre for Ibero-American Studies. PhD Programme: Ibero- American Studies. Field of Study: History. Adviser: doc. Markéta Křížová, Ph.D. Prague, 2018. 384 pp. The present dissertation, under the title of State, Law, and Everyday Life in Aztec Tenochtitlan, is the result of the research of a society that existed in the Aztec city-state of Tenochtitlan from its founding (about AD 1325) to its conquest by the Spaniards (1519 - 1521). In the dissertation, based on historical sources and secondary literature, three essential, complementary aspects of this society are examined, namely: 1. its organization and functioning, whose character indicates that Tenochtitlan was a consolidated (urban) state; 2. its legal order, which was developed and systematically exercised by the state; and 3. typical forms of everyday life of its members (of different categories). By exploring the three aspects of the society existing in Tenochtitlan, the following aim of the dissertation was achieved: 1. to examine the state organization, the legal order and the everyday life forms of the inhabitants of pre-Hispanic Aztec Tenochtitlan, both in their interrelated contexts and in the diachronic perspective; and...
The Otavalo Indians in thé context of the tourism industry
Pikousová, Jana ; Křížová, Markéta (advisor) ; Opatrný, Josef (referee)
My thesis is about the life and traditions of the Otavalo Indians in Ecuador. It aims to explain how important it is for them to be succesful in the modern world. The goal of this thesis is to find out how the Otavalo Indians present themselves in the context of their development and advancement of the travel industry in Ecuador, and the rest of the world, and what kind of means they use to achieve it. An example of this can be the way they present themselves in social media and how they are able to attract tourists to Otavalo. To answer my research question I mostly used English and Spanish literature, internet resources and social media. For the Otavalo Indians, it is important to be successful in the modern world, so as to preserve old traditions. The Otavalos are recognised as extremely competent textile makers and retail sellers who travel the world selling their products. Today, Otavalo is a modern city and a popular destination for tourists visiting Ecuador. The Market Place, where products were sold before the Incas arrived, has been modernised in order to satisfy current needs. The Otavalo Indians are deeply connected to their traditions, and therefore blend them with new technological demands and advances. The Otavalos were able to survive the dominancy of the Incas and later on of the...
The Brazilian Agrarian-industrial Towns of Jan Antonín Baťa (1940 - 1965): Bata Shoe Company's Ideal Industrial Town as Transnational Crossings of Urban Planning Ideas
Costa da Silva, Davi ; Křížová, Markéta (advisor) ; Sonkoly, Gábor (referee) ; Jemelka, Martin (referee)
This master thesis deals with the towns that were established by the Czech entrepreneur Jan Antonín Baťa in Brazil between 1941 and 1965: Batatuba, Vila CIMA - Indiana, Mariápolis, Bataguassu and Batayporã. The phenomenon of the Brazilian Baťa towns is analysed through lenses of the histoire croisée approach in order to show these cities as a result of the interaction between several urban planning concepts, Brazilian political and economic contexts, and Jan A. Baťa 's own plans and intentions. To do so, I analyze several projects and relevant supporting documentation about the Bata Shoe Company's ideal industrial town as well as the cities established by Jan Antonín Baťa in Brazil. Therefore, the Brazilian Bata towns are presented as a special chapter of a transnational history of the company towns established by the Baťa Shoe Company in different areas of the world. Primary sources indicate that Jan Antonín Baťa wanted to create mixed agrarian-industrial settlements in which families would be able to work on factories and farms at the same time, creating a new urban model that I am calling the "Bata Agrarian-industrial town". Keywords: Brazilian Bata towns, Jan Antonín Baťa, Agrarian-industrial town, transnational urban studies
Proměny psané norštiny a jejich odraz v tisku na území Spojených států během 19. století a první poloviny 20. století

The thesis presents the development and changes of the Norwegian written standard in the United States during the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. The research is based on the material from the newspapers published by the Norwegian immigrant community in the United States. For the purpose of the analyses, three leading Norwegian written newspapers (Decorah-Posten, Skandinaven, Minneapolis Tidende; commonly known as The Big Three) were selected. The development of Norwegian is documented from the perspective of language management and its theory. The first part of the analyses deals with the influence of English as the dominant language of the area on the written Norwegian. Morphological and orthographic integration of English loanwords as well as the most affected fields of the immigrants' lexicon are discussed in this part. The second view monitors the impact of the spelling reform codified in 1907 in Norway on the written standard of the immigrants in the United States and its extent. Features such as voiced/voiceless occlusives, plural and preterite forms, use of double consonants and font are studied in the newspaper material. The individual research points give a general view on the topic of the written Norwegian as used by the immigrants in their press....

Illegal Hispanic Migration to the USA
Minčičová, Petra ; Křížová, Markéta (advisor) ; Buben, Radek (referee)
There are approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States of America presently. Mexicans are the largest group; however they are followed by immigrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador (GHS), a region known as the Northern Triangle. Current immigration from the region of GHS prevails. One of the reasons is an ongoing 2014 American immigration crisis, related to the migration of unaccompanied minor's. The Northern Triangle is considered to be one of the poorest in the region, with the high levels of crime and murder rates, which is likely to be caused by numerous street gangs and drug cartels. The first wave of migration was caused by civil wars in Guatemala and El Salvador in the eighties. There was another wave after 1998 caused by several natural disasters which swept through the region. The newcomers widened the numbers of undocumented immigrants in the USA. President Trump plans to deport most of the undocumented immigrants and he wants to prevent other migrants from coming with the construction of the border wall with Mexico. The immigrants live in the USA ten years or longer on average, some of them have families and kids who are American citizens. In contrast to the decision of the previous administration, they would not avoid the deportation. The current...
Image of Spain and Portugal in English written travelogues in 1750'
Branda, Martin ; Křížová, Markéta (advisor) ; Černá, Jana (referee) ; Erdösi, Péter (referee)
in English The master thesis is concerned with the analysis and interpretation of English written travelogues of the second half of the 18th century, which described Spain and Portugal. I work with two original texts and one translation from Italian, all the texts which were popular among their readers. The main goal of the thesis is to create the complex image of both respective countries and their inhabitants, based on the analysis of travelogues. During the analysis, I use the concept of stereotype as defined by Walther Lippmann. I also use so-called Black Legend, the negative view of the Iberian Peninsula originating in the 16th century. At the same time, the aim of the thesis is to compare the images in all works and come to more general conclusions about English perception of Spain and Portugal. Keywords: Spain, Portugal, travelogues, image of the Other, Black Legend, Southey, Baretti, Young
Native Handicraft Textile Production in Oaxaca
Melicharová, Tereza ; Křížová, Markéta (advisor) ; Brenišínová, Monika (referee)
This thesis is a case study about three textile cooperatives made up of women from three indigenous ethnic groups in the Mexican state of Oaxaca: Galvain Cuy (Zapotecs, Teotitlán del Valle community), Jiñi Ñuu (Mixtecs, San Juan Colorado community) and Kee Nshií (Chatino people, Santiago Yaitepec community). Together with other Oaxaca handcraft cooperatives, these are connected with the community firm Color y Cultura, which looks after the sales and promotion of their products. This paper maps the cooperative work of the indigenous women who are involved in handcrafted textile production in the above-mentioned three communities, and how the umbrella firm Color y Cultura residing in Oaxaca de Juárez operates. It examines how these women perceive the cooperative business model and the Color y Cultura community firm, which they are connected with, as well as the advantages and weaknesses of this model of a work organisation. It also treats their ethnic self- perception in relation to their actual handcraft work and the promotion thereof. The membership in Color y Cultura makes it possible for the women in the cooperatives studied to avoid dealing with a middleman thanks to its brick and mortar shop in Oaxaca. This brings them a higher profit, creative freedom and direct contact with the customer....
