Caravan Club
Fišerová, Barbora ; Kubíková, Zuzana (referee) ; Kijonka, Lukáš (advisor)
The bachelor thesis describes the evolution and changes of the phenomenon of organized caravaning in our country from its beginning and its boom to the present. Due to the breadth of the selected theme in the monitored period, from the 1970s to 2019, I focus mainly on Western Bohemia, specifically the Caravan Club Pilsen, of which my family is a member. Part of the book is the autobiographically written memory of Jan Valenta, who wrote the club “Chronicle” from around 1980 to 2011, archival photographs and authorial texts and narrative interviews. The caravanist's biographies allow us to look at both the specifics of this phenomenon and the form of tourism, as well as the functioning of Czech society in the period of so-called normalization and years after. The research as an “insider-caravanist” and the editing of available material resulted in a printed book that maps the historical development and transformations of CC Pilsen from a personal perspective.

Intellectual Interests of George, Count of Buquoy
MORAWETZ, Michal
This dissertation discusses the intellectual interests of George, Count of Buquoy (1781-1851), who gained fame in the first half of the nineteenth century through his inventions of new technical devices, his efforts to improve manufacturing technologies used on his estates, his contacts with leading scientists and philosophers of the time, and his original scientific and philosophical treatises. This dissertation scrutinises the writings kept in Buquoy's archival estate, as well as his published works, and discusses the reactions his thoughts elicited among contemporary scientists and various other people within Buquoy's intellectual milieu. Methodologically, I draw on contemporary approaches to studies of intellectual history, which aim to interpret and contextualise particular ideas with regard to the author's immediate background and the broader intellectual climate of the time. Aiming to avoid biographical fallacy, I focus on pivotal moments of Buquoy's scientific career without attempting to integrate them into a biographical narrative by means of supposed causality. The thesis is structured as a chronologically ordered discussion of key themes and defining moments in the development of Buquoy's thought. Particular attention is paid to the influences which formed Buquoy's intellectual outlook, including his upbringing, education, the experiences he gained during travels, the knowledge he absorbed from scholarly treatises, and the views he exchanged with contemporary scientists. I show how these factors influenced the themes Buquoy chose to discuss in his treatises and the ways in which he presented his arguments. An important part of the thesis is a deconstructive analysis of Buquoy's self-presentation strategy, through which he sought to align himself with the scientific community. Finally, the thesis discusses the fundamental philosophical views underpinning Buquoy's intellectual endeavours in the field of science.
An Example and a Scandal: On the Reception of Deml’s Testimony About Otokar Březina
Davidová, Eliška
Deml’s most comprehensive book, My Testimony About Otokar Březina (1931), provoked a wave of outrage in the Czechoslovakian press on publication. This contribution examines a sample of ten different texts written at the time and on this basis outlines the main narratives adopted by the participants in the debate as well as their motivations, methods of argumentation and, finally, the key topics discussed. It determines the central motif in the debate to be the image of a dead poet which represented a key element in the mythology of the recently founded republic.
