The role of women in the world of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale & The Testaments
Beránková, Anna ; Topolovská, Tereza (advisor) ; Chalupský, Petr (referee)
This thesis is concerned with the world of The Handmaid's Tale (1985) and The Testaments (2019), works of Margaret Atwood. The dystopian theocratic totalitarian regime featured in these novels invites a socio-historical and anthropological analysis and interpretation from the perspective of the subjugated female characters. The theoretical part, introduced by an overview of Atwood's work, provides the reader with crucial information regarding the historical parallels which inspired the narrative, as well as a delimitation of relevant anthropological concepts, such as liminality or status reversal. Subsequently, using both the knowledge gathered in the theoretical and in Atwood's works, the rise of the fundamentalist cult of the Sons of Jacob and their project, the Republic of Gilead, is explained, and their ideology is uncovered in the first section of the practical part. Second part of the interpretation focuses on the position of women within the system that subjugates and oppresses them. The analysis is performed by the means of comparing and contrasting the ideal models of the positions of women as designed by the architects of the system with the actual application on the example of selected characters. The ultimate aims of this thesis are to prove the innate sexism and misogyny of the...

Beránková, Anna ; Topolovská, Tereza (advisor) ; Chalupský, Petr (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to examine the ways in which the female characters of two well-known works, namely William Golding's novel The Double Tongue (1995) and Arthur Miller's play The Crucible (1953), are exploited by male characters in pursuit of their ambitions. In spite of the works being set in different periods, they both develop the theme of male authorities abusing and misusing the inferior position of oftentimes adolescent women, bestowed on them by patriarchal society. The interpretation of both literary works is mainly based on historical and socio-cultural study of the periods as well as works of literary criticism. Abstracting the main features regarding the theme of this thesis that connect the two periods, the two literary works are compared. The theoretical part of the thesis provides the reader with a brief overview concerning the authors with a specific focus on the historical circumstances in which the works were written, and which influenced the content of the works. Second part of the theoretical section focuses on the historical and socio-cultural context in which the plots of the individual works take place. The last theoretical section discusses the position of women in the respective societies. The practical part subsequently presents illustration of the discussed...
The in vitro effects of selected substances on isolated rat aorta
Beránková, Anna ; Pourová, Jana (advisor) ; Vopršalová, Marie (referee)
Charles University Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology Student: Anna Beránková Supervisor: PharmDr. Jana Pourová, Ph.D. Title of diploma thesis: The in vitro effects of selected substances on isolated rat aorta Flavonoids are a numerous group of secondary plant metabolites. Flavonoid compounds are substances widely extended in nature and many of them have a positive influence on human health, primarily for their vasodilatory, antioxidant and anti- inflammatory effects. Three substances were selected for this diploma theses: two substances of isoflavonoid group, genistin and genistein, and the end product of genistein metabolism, 4-ethylphenol. The aim of this work is examination of vasorelaxant effects of this substances in vitro. Vasorelaxing potential of tested substances was tested in vitro in isolated aortic rings of Wistar rat. The effect of increasing doses of individual substances in precontracted aortic rings with intact endothelium was measured. From the obtained values of vessel tension, the DRC curves and EC50 values were created. The results were evaluated. The results analysis shows, that genistein (EC50 2,903.10-5 M) had the most significant activity. Also genistin (EC50 4,045.10-4 M) and high doses of 4-ethylphenol (EC50 1,509.10-3 M) caused...
The influence of the quality of the colostrum on the growth and health of calves
Bachelor thesis presents a summary of the importance of colostrum, its composition and compared to mature milk. Colostrum contains important proteins that ensure the health status of the calf. Total protein in colostrum contains important life immunoglobulins, which are involved in immunity calves. For quality connection and future health of calves, you need timely connection quality colostrum and calf submit a corresponding amount. Another important stage in the life of the calf, contributing to good growth and health, the feed technique, which is described in the relevant literature review section. There is also characterized by the meaning and role of colostral immunoglobulin. The methodology applied by methods of measuring the quality of colostrum and measuring total protein in blood serum from calves. In my own research were processed by the information provided by the company VHD Hradiště. Here, the work was focused on the maternal calves and influences the quality of the colostrum to calves and further quantities of immunoglobulins absorbed into the bloodstream after connecting colostrum. Selected influences on the quality of colostrum, calves health and their weight are processed into tables and graphs. The results were no statistically significant differences.
Prague's cyrilists and their relation to Regensburger cecilianism. Notices to the correspondence of Prague's cyrilists to F. X. Witt
Beránková, Anna ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (referee) ; Slavický, Tomáš (advisor)
The objective of this work is to describe the situation and course of events in the field of Catholic liturgical music in Bohemia and, in particular, in Prague in the 1870s and 1880s. These twenty years are only a part of a larger timeframe, often called the Caecilian Movement, in connection with a church music reform which touched all of Central Europe. Especially in the 1870s, the Czech lands had a close connection with Bavarian Regensburg, being the centre and model of reform efforts for the whole of Central Europe. In addition to collaborations of Prague and Regensburg reformers, vivid correspondence connections were established between them. And namely the letters of the Prague so-called "Cyrillists" addressed to the leading mover of the reform in Regensburg - Franz Xaver Witt - are the main source for this work. These letters, which had been unknown in our country until now, can be found in the Central Bishop Library in Regensburg, together with a twinvolume catalogue containing a detailed list of the letters. Based on these letters, this work shows and comments in more detail the already known data about the respective time period. This work also contains a full wording of the letters from selected correspondence partners of F. X. Witt, together with an index of persons, mentioned herein.
