The Role of the Jewish Cultural Mediators in Prague Democratic Media between the Woldwars
Bosnovičová, Zuzana ; Zelená, Alena (advisor) ; Handl, Vladimír (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the situation of the Jewish minority in the first Czechoslovak Republic concentrating on Prague as a unique case of the coexistence of the Czech, German and Jewish people. The aim of the research is to analyze the role of democratic German-language periodicals in the presentation of Zionism and Judaism based on the contributions of both Jewish and non-Jewish authors, the so-called intercultural mediators, and to answer questions about the extent to which the ideas of Zionism were presented in the democratic media, and how the question of Jewish identity was addressed in the German- language liberal press. The thesis is profiled as a political-historical and cultural-historical study. The research method chosen in its elaboration is the unique case study method. The aim of the thesis is to analyze the relations of these media to Judaism and Zionism, as well as the relations of Jews and Non-Jews to the issues of national identity, based on selected texts by both Jewish and non- Jewish writers and journalists. The analysis itself comprises a total of nine texts, and the identity of the author does not play a role in this case. The Jews in Prague mostly mastered German and Czech perfectly, and thus became translators and cultural mediators between the two nations. The...
Czech Society and Soviet Army 1968-1991. Some issues from the Soviet perspectives.
Zavorotchenko, Igor ; Mücke, Pavel (advisor) ; Wohlmuth, Petr (referee)
Abstract. This paper explores the memories of Soviet participants in the presence of Soviet troops in Czechoslovakia after 1968. Based on previously existing and new sources, information on the state of the media in the Central Group of Forces is summarized. At the same time, memories and assessments of events by their witnesses are given. Next, the historical myth about the presence of units of the National People's Army of the GDR on the territory of Czechoslovakia in 1968 and their actions against the local population was studied. An attempt is made to interpret this "false memory", widespread in the memoirs of Soviet narrators, to identify the causes of such a myth and its symbolic meaning for those who remember and listen. Also, it is discussed the problem of interpretation and evaluation of the events of 1968 in Czech and Russian collective memories, the attitude of both sides to the definition of the troop's invasion as an act of occupation. Revealed a diametrically opposite perception of this problem by both parties. This discussion naturally brings to the issue of the differences in Czech and Russian historical memories regarding the events of May 1945 and August 1968, the place of these events in symbolic memory and the reflection of these differences in relation of both sides to monumental...

Media coverage of the Summer Olympic Games 1948, 1952 and 1956 in the Czechoslovakian press
Kadeřábek, Jan ; Němcová Tejkalová, Alice (advisor) ; Macková, Veronika (referee)
The diploma thesis analyses the media coverage of the 1948 Summer Olympics in London and 1952 in Helsinki in selected Czechoslovakian media. The qualitative content analysis compares the transformation of Olympic coverage in London with Helsinki, especially from an ideological point of view. The thesis begins with a description of the post-war development of Czechoslovakia between 1945 and 1952, continues with media development in the same period and through the definition of theoretical concepts - communism, capitalism, ideology, ideological square and methodology - reaches the most extensive part dealing with the British and Finnish Games from the view of the Czechoslovakian press. This part of the thesis is further divided into subchapters according to the topics that were most covered by the Czechoslovakian media at the Games. This is followed by a comparison between the London and Helsinki Games, which, based on examples, describes the ideological transformation of coverage and media content of the Czechoslovakian media between 1948 and 1952.
Transformations of Miloš Forman's media image in contemporary press
Řápek, Jan ; Šobr, Michal (advisor) ; Novotný, David Jan (referee)
This diploma thesis is devoted to the changes of Miloš Forman's media image, more precisely how contemporary press perceived both his career and work. Miloš Forman is the most acknowledged and most famous czech film director. His story is connected with story of czech cinematography and story of its changes. The thesis wants to find out, why Forman wasn't defamed even though he left the country, despite his emigration. I am trying to prove that his media image has never been strictly negative and Forman itself never became a taboo. Forman's person is beyond all standards. He is proof, that if the work is not overly crtitical of the regime, it arouses respect despite all the ideology. He was reflected in the various life stages differently, but still in relatively good light. The thesis examines the perception of Miloš Forman by media in three life stages: work in Czechoslovakia before emigration to the United States, working abroad and finally the stage after the Velvet Revolution. Although Forman has participated in many films, this thesis is focused only on his feature-length work. And because Miloš Forman is a person who transcends the borders of Czechoslovakia, or the Czech Republic, media abroad reflected his career as well, although the view there was slightly different from the domestic one.

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 Reflection of Edvard Beneš in The Czechoslovakian Press in the Selected Periods of 1948-1988
Svatoš, Jiří ; Bednařík, Petr (advisor) ; Groman, Martin (referee)
In my diploma thesis I came to the conclusion that the frequency of mentions about Edvard Beneš fluctuated in the monitored media. From the examined periods, Rudé právo, Lidová demokracie and Svobodné slovo most often wrote about him in 1968 (a total of 37 mentions), in 1958 there were 32 mentions and in 1978 and 1988 there were 25 mentions. On the contrary, in sum of all the examined periods, there were only a few mentions in some years - for example, in 1983 there were 4 mentions, in 1948 there were 8 mentions and in 1973 there were 10 mentions. Rudé právo most often wrote about Edvard Beneš (96 references in all), in Svobodné slovo 47 and in Lidová demokracie 37. This can be explained by the fact that during the Communist regime Rudé právo had more pages than the other two newspapers and it also paid more attention to politics. In the researched media, Edvard Beneš was most often mentioned in connection with the February coup d'état anniversaries. In the qualitative analysis, I came to the conclusion that the studied newspapers mostly wrote about Edvard Beneš neutrally (57 percent of all mentions), negative references were 35 percent, and 8 percent were positive. During the 1950s, the analysed media was mostly critical to Edvard Beneš. However, in 1963 I noticed 50 percent of neutral references....
