"I Become Speech." Death and Return of the Author in the Perspective of Philosophy of Identity
Martinovská, Anna ; Šebek, Josef (advisor) ; Bílek, Petr (referee)
Diploma thesis "I become speech." Death and Return of the Author in the Perspective of Philosophy of Identity focuses on the question of inclusion of the author into the interpretation of literary text and aims to highlight the fruitfulness of such inclusion as well as some of its dangers. The thesis is divided into three parts. In the first part the author of the thesis presents a polemic account of some antiauthorial approaches, especially the "death of the author" as appearing in the texts of R. Barthes, M. Foucault and Jacques Derrida, along with a short mention of antiintentionalism of W. K Wimsatt and M. C. Beardsley and a theory of the model author by U. Eco. The common feature of the aforementioned antiauthorial theories is a reductive idea of the author and his relation to text - the problematic aspects of authorial interpretation, which their texts wish to make evident, is then only a consequence of the problematic underlying notion of the author-subject. The second part of the thesis intends to present an alternative theoretical understanding of the "real author" using the philosophy of identity od J. Butler and P. Bourdieu. These authors are proposing a theory of a person who is not understood as a "real thing" that would be available for a complete delimitation, description and...

Assessment of hydraulic reliability of drainage system in urban area and solution of extra-urban storm water.
Šebek, Josef ; Macsek, Tomáš (referee) ; Hlavínek, Petr (advisor)
This diploma thesis presents the topic of urban drainage systems. The first theoretical part contains methods and options for urban drainage systems, stormwater management, blue-green infrastructure (BGI) in urban areas and introduction of numerical modelling of sewerage systems. The application of modelling platforms is further described in the feasibility study in the practical part of this thesis. By using the simulation model, the study assesses the hydraulic reliability of the drainage system in the city of Jedovnice in the Czech Republic, identifies hydraulic issues and their causes on the urban drainage system. The second part of the study assesses extra-urban stormwater inflow from fields around the city caused by heavy rainfalls, which causes local flooding in the urban area.

Us & Them: Centricity in Literature
Prchal, Jan ; Šebek, Josef (advisor) ; Bílek, Petr (referee)
The bachelor thesis maps the origin, development and changes of the literary centre and literary periphery in the period of turning points in history from 1986 to 1992 on specific material. The phenomenon of changing publishing preferences and the phenomenon of changing the author's work itself is discussed in detail. The thesis aims to answer the overarching fundamental question: Who influences the form of the literary market and culture the most and on what basis this "natural selection", where one part of production becomes the centre while the other becomes a periphery, but often in an unbalanced proportion with quality, takes place. This thesis theoretically explains the issue of the literary centre and the periphery in a broader cultural and social context, noting that the literary "explosion" may have a controlled character and therefore predictable impacts on society. A fundamental benefit should be the analysis of the relationships between literary works and the requirements of those structures that model the form of the literary market. KEY WORDS literary theory, literature management, centre and periphery, publishing reviews, explosion, Miroslav Florian, Vladimír Páral, Jurij Lotman
Double addressee in selected works of contemporary children's literature
Hajdíková, Karolína ; Králíková, Andrea (advisor) ; Šebek, Josef (referee)
(in English): The bachelor thesis deals with the topic of the addressee in the narrative structure of selected works of contemporary prose for children. It analyses and interprets three contemporary children's books with a historical setting - Transport za v nost, Cílovníci and Ani ka, mluvící potok a další chovanci ústavu paní Majerové. The thesis uses specific categories (intertextuality, incompleteness, connecting fiction with reality etc.) to analyse how texts imply the adult reader. In terms of terminology, the paper uses Wolfgang Iser's concept of the implied reader. The aim of the work is to reveal concrete narratological strategies which do not imply only one recipient but takes into account the broader reception context.
The methods of political reading in post-socialist Czechia and Poland
Blažková, Hana ; Šebek, Josef (advisor) ; Bílek, Petr (referee)
This thesis aims to analyze Czech literary criticism of the 1990s from the perspective of political reading. In the first part, the basic tendencies of Polish literary criticism are introduced: these form a contrast to the Czech context and also problematize some underlying notions of Czech literary historiography. The second part discusses the following terms: politics and police Rancière), depoliticization (Schmitt, Barthes) and ideology (Eagleton). These are adjusted to the specifics of the Czech context. The practical part of the thesis looks at the political interpretation of the critical reception of three novels by Michal Viewegh. The topics of the reception becomes the focus here: the debates around these novels include suppressed political messages such as the fight for the historical narrative of the previous political regime, or the disputes over high and low literature. These reflect the helplessness of the literary field, caused by the pressure of the commercialized book market. This part also looks at the contemporary debates on the so-called authentic literature and two program manifestoes. These examples show that the Czech literary field's proclaimed split from politics is only rhetorical: the result is not its autonomy, but an unreflected heteronomy.

Body in Libuše Moníková's Prose
Martinovská, Anna ; Heczková, Libuše (advisor) ; Šebek, Josef (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to present possibilities of interpretation of the body in Libuše Moníková's three works - Ujma, Pavana za mrtvou infantku and Zjasněná noc. The interpretation is preceded by a large theoretical part providing the philosophical basis of my readings: the concept of bodily subjectivity as introduced in Maurice Merleau-Ponty's and Judith Butler's philosophical thought. The chapter devoted to Merleau-Ponty is focused primarily on the body seen as a foundation of our subjectivity, speech and thought. Judith's Butler account of the body will be studied in relation to her analysis of performative gender, power norms and subsequently materiality and corporeality. In the second part of the thesis, I will make use of these concepts while interpreting the prose of Libuše Moníková. I focus on a body as a subject of power inside the fictional universes of the proses, I analyze the relation of bodily borders to subjectivity and intersubjectivity in all three works and focus on the ways we can see them as subversive in relation to gender norms. Final part of the interpretation focuses on the narration of the proses and on their "metanarrative" moments. I will argue, that the proses listed above can be seen as examples of an "embodied narration" through their fragmented structure,...
