Vaňková, Michaela ; Halada, Jan (advisor) ; Čeňková, Jana (referee)
The aim of the bachelor's thesis is to present the Czech publishing house Práh, which is unique among other medium-sized publishing houses in that none of the large publishing houses are behind it, on the contrary, for a long time there was only one person standing behind it. Since it is not possible to separate the person of Martin Vopěnka, the founder of Práh, and the publishing house itself, the introductory part of the first chapter is dedicated to introducing his person and his work not only as the founder and owner of Práh, but especially as a writer. In the next part of the first chapter, the thesis deals with the situation in the field of publishing shortly before and after the establishment of Práh, because the publishing house was established in 1991, two years after the Velvet Revolution, when an inexhaustible number of publishers in Czechoslovakia were founded and disappeared very quickly. It was a wild period for a publishing activity in our country. In other parts, the work is reserved for the Práh publishing house itself, where it first describes the circumstances of its origin, the first years of operation and also the current operation. The third chapter deals with the production of Práh, presents editions and the most important authors. The largest part of the thesis is dedicated...

Akkadová, Natalie ; Malý, Radek (advisor) ; Čeňková, Jana (referee)
This bachelor thesis follows up on the profile of a literary magazine which focuses on poetry Psí víno and its transformation over time, specifically in the period from its foundation (in the year 1997) until the termination of its printed version.

The Beginnings and the Image of Propaganda Through Chosen American Literary Works and Newspapers at the turn of the 19th Century
Bílková, Monika ; Malý, Radek (advisor) ; Čeňková, Jana (referee)
This bachelor thesis observes selected American literary works written at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries from a bit different angle. While we usually associate the term "propaganda" with totalitarian and authoritarian regimes, fiction presents a way of entertainment. However, every literary work, whether consciously or subconsciously, still reflects the particular period. Especially the second half of the 19th century was a very turbulent era full of different changes and paradoxes. How have then the generally acknowledged notions and beliefs, as well as the harmful and challenging social norms, which have been ironically emerging even in the democratic "land of infinite possibilities" and values such as freedom and equality, been reflected in works that are respected and read to this day? Have the authors and the heroes of their stories managed to confront, and eventually escape the merciless social dictate or have they succumbed to it under the ambient pressure? The theoretical part of this thesis will introduce the definitions of propaganda as well as the general historical context. The practical part will then characterize and analyze the individual literary works. What do they say about the society at that time, and to what extent do they oppose or support it?
