Czechoslovak Housing Estates in the Late Socialism: Ideology, Practice, and Criticism
Sirisornpattapon, Ponpassorn ; Emler, David (advisor) ; Šmidrkal, Václav (referee)
Czechoslovak housing estates built in the last two decades of state-socialism can be viewed as a socialist spatial entity with its own uniqueness and local characteristics specific to the circumstances of socialist Czechoslovakia during the "normalisation" era. These housing estates appeared from the beginning of the 1970s in big cities such as in Prague and Bratislava provided a new kind of living space for the residents. The ideas behind the creation of these estates were not only related to their physical appearance which shows the direct connection to modernist architecture, but also the aspiration of socialist ideologues to make a positive change in the name of socialist modernisation. Although the post-war socialist centralization of the Czechoslovak state and architectural practice endorses the notion of collective endeavour, the construction of housing estates for all as a part of the "building of socialism" program was attacked by contemporary critiques as providing the premises for the citizens' retreat into the private sphere. These estates could be argued to have caused a psychological impact and worked to shape a new lifestyle and mentality of the residents whose lives epitomized the main theme of normalisation-era: the quiet lives away from politics. Different poles of criticism to...

Semi-Automatic Word Normalization in Parish Records
Hříbek, David ; Zbořil, František (referee) ; Rozman, Jaroslav (advisor)
This work deals with the extension of DEMoS web application for the management of parish records by the possibility of normalization (assignment of a normalized form of writing to individual words) of names, surnames, occupations, domiciles and other types of words occurring in parish records. In the solution, a duplicate record detection process was used, which allowed sorting of the records from parish records into clusters of similar words. As a result of the clustering, it was possible to share normalized word variants within these clusters. Thus, DEMoS suggests normalized variants for words entered by users, used not only for the same words, but also for similar words. In this work, automatic testing of word clustering was proposed. In total, 640 different combinations of clustering parameters were tested for each word type. Subsequently, the best clustering parameters were selected for each word type. By normalizing words, DEMoS application significantly increases the efficiency of searching in parish records. Records are also easier to read.
The czechoslovakien prohibited films of the 1960's era as a reflection of the political situation of the time.
Nevolová, Zuzana ; Novotný, David Jan (advisor) ; Bednařík, Petr (referee)
The main focus and aim of this bachelors thesis was to determine, whether Czechoslovak prohibited films, which were made during the 1960's era and suppressed during the era of normalization, truly reflect the political situation of the communist regime (not only in their contents, but also in the approach the media of the time took towards the unwanted films) and whether those filmworks could serve as an unwanted commentary of the time. The theoretical part of this thesis therefore determines the context of the politics and media of the time, puts an emphasis on the censorship practice and the evolution of czech film history during the communist era. The analytical section concerns itself with the chosen prohibited films (Den sedmý, osmá noc (The Seventh Day, the Eight Night), Kladivo na čarodějnice (The Witch Hunt), Skřivánci na niti (Larks on a String), Smuteční slavnost (Funeral Ceremonies), Všichni dobří rodáci (All My Compatriots), Ucho (The Ear) and Žert (The Joke)). The cinematography and the contents of these films are analysed, as well as the references to the communist era. The particular way of suppression of the films and the filmmakers is also established. This thesis comes to a conclusion that the chosen forbidden films truly reflect the situation of the time and even some particular...
The changes of critical discourse in the review "Melodie" on the edge of sixties and seventies of 20th Century, and early in eighties of 20th century.
The bachelor thesis deals with a Czech musical monthly called Melodie. Particularly, it is focused on possible changes in critical discourse in the period from 60s to the first half of 80s of 20th century. The thesis also provides information concerning the origins of this popular periodical. In the first selected period (the turn of 60s and 70s), it propounds an objective view of the monthly's direction and, at the same time, an objective perception of its authors' work. The approaches of the authors are not only described separately but also in the context of selected sections. The thesis also highlights instances of contradictions between the content of articles and the prevailing discourse of the Communist government. In the second selected period (the first half of 80s), the thesis points to the coerced replacement of the management which was connected to a different direction of the periodical. The aim of the research is to describe in detail different approaches of the monthly Melodie during these two selected periods. To illustrate it, the thesis uses the analysis of particular texts written by chosen authors. However, the thesis also aims to provide a comprehensive view concerning the overall production of Melodie.
Normalization-era cinematography in Czech current television broadcasting
Jabůrek, Václav ; Štoll, Martin (advisor) ; Cebe, Jan (referee)
There are lots of studies about normalization cinematography, its content or historical context of its creation. But there was no research about its presence in post-communist television broadcast in the Czech Republic. This work takes a look on five biggest TV channels - ČT1, ČT2, Nova, Prima and Barrandov - in eight chosen years between 1994 and 2015. Content analysis shows, how are Czech televisions dealing with movies and series from communist era, and whether there are any long-term trends connected with this genre. Thanks to the research method, we can see how the usage of those titles has developed up to present. Study also focuses on programmes during weekends and holidays and the amount of normalization movies on these occasions. One part of this work is dealing with communist propaganda and its presence in current broadcast. As Harald Welzer's studies show, old movies are hugely affecting people's understanding of historical events. Therefore, this survey focuses on Czechoslovak movies, which are falsifying modern history such as TV series Thirty Cases of Major Zeman or comedy Bourlive vino. Apart from those cases, less propagandistic movies have also been examined. For example those showing idealized image of normalization society and values of the former regime.
Copyright workers. The agency DILIA during the time of so-called normalization in memories of its employees
Burman, Markéta ; Krátká, Lenka (advisor) ; Vaněk, Miroslav (referee)
In this thesis, I present Dilia, the Theater and Literary Agency, at the time of so-called normalization from the perspective of its employees. On the basis of available documentation, the organization's history from the beginning of 1949 until 1990 (a time of revolutionary societal changes) is mapped. Then I describe the organizational structure and different scope of work of each department and afterwards I turn back to the history again, this time with the focus on historical events, especially during the time of so-called normalization. I present the events as they were related to corresponding changes in directorship. In this thesis, I discover on the background of the era how the former employees recall their everyday life. I recall the employees' recollections of everyday life, working and private, in the context of the era. These recollections include forced membership in social organizations. Ultimately, they assess their their lives the vantage of today.
