In the last part deals with the integration of graffiti (and street art) in contemporary art.
The walkman phenomenon: Sociological interpretation
Konečný, Jakub ; Balon, Jan (advisor) ; Dvořák, Tomáš (referee)
The "Walkman phenomenon: sociological intepretation" bachelor thesis deals with the influence of the effects that are being caused by personal stereo use on perception and experience of reality of the walkman listener. It also investigates the basis of these effects what causes them and their mutual cohesion. Starting off with the walkman phenomenon history the author sets walkman into nexus with conceptions of media, soundscape and the work of art reproduction. Furthermore provides an evidence of inseparability of the walkman phenomenon with urban realm and its closure with privatization of public space theme. The main part of the work concerns with analysis of available phenomenological studies about walkman users with emphasis on particularity of the world they construct through the music listening act on their personal stereos.

National mythology of the world exhibition EXPO 2010 in Shanghai
Machoňová, Ivana ; Šoltys, Otakar (advisor) ; Dvořák, Tomáš (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the national presentation of the Czech Republic at EXPO 2010 in Shanghai in terms of mythology, symbols, signs and codes. It describes the history of the World Exhibitions, attempts to highlight Czechoslovak achievements and on the basis of that to define key points of successful communication for an international, predominately Chinese audience. By comparing information on traditional Chinese symbols and values with that of Czech explains correlations between Czech and Chinese culture. This can help visitors from China identify with the Czech Republic. A mythological analysis is executed examining the exterior of the Czech pavilion, the exhibition inside, and notes narrative structures of individual exhibits and how they work to provide the preferred interpretation. Part of the overall analysis includes an overview of supporting events, which also help to strengthen the perception of Czech Republic to visitors. The information gleaned is used to summarize learnings that could be useful for the upcoming EXPO in Milan in 2015.
Foreign language effect in framing
Križák, Jan ; Remr, Jiří (advisor) ; Dvořák, Tomáš (referee)
The main aim of the thesis was to investigate the effect of the use of a foreign language - in this case, English - on the strength of the framing effect in framing types that have not been studied in this respect before. According to the results, framing through the manipulation of emotionally charged keywords is indeed mitigated by the use of a foreign language. The main factors at play here are whether the respondent started learning the foreign language at an early age before the emotion-regulation systems were developed, and whether the respondent is accustomed to using the language routinely. Visual framing yielded the opposite results - in the absence of the keywords, only the effect of greater cognitive load remained for respondents completing the questionnaire in English, which magnified the framing bias. This effect was stronger for respondents whose English skills were weaker and who used English less. In the case of framing using the status quo, the results were inconclusive as there was a bias most likely caused by an inaccuracy in translation.

Dilatancy of soils as a factor influencing the bearing capacity and load - displacement response of deep foundations
Dvořák, Tomáš ; Koudela, Pavel (referee) ; Chalmovský, Juraj (advisor)
In theory of soil mechanic the dilatancy has a significant influence, which may fundamentally affect bearing capacity and behavior of geotechnical constructions. In the past it was difficult to include influence of dilatancy directly in to calculation, but now with development of numerical analysis and growth of computer performance it is much easier. In this work there are introduced fundamental dilatancy models and phenomen called constraint dilatancy, which causes stress changes in soil or at soil – construction interface. This stress changes may lead to higher bearing capacity. In this work, the effect of constraint dilatancy is focused on bored pile’s shaft. Next target of this work is including dilatancy to calculation. By empirical methods, by direct application with theory of cylindrical cavity expansion and last by numerical calculation with finite element method in software Plaxis with using the Hardening Soil model.

Electoral volatility in European Parliament Elections in V4 Countries: 2004-2019
Mertlík, Arnošt ; Linek, Lukáš (advisor) ; Dvořák, Tomáš (referee)
This diploma thesis focuses on changes in voting behaviour among voters in the Visegrad Group states (V4), specifically electoral volatility between the European Parliament elections and the national elections in the particular state. The approach to examining electoral volatility in this work is based on the second-order national elections theory, which divides elections into less and more important ones. The aim of the work is first to describe the overall electoral volatility in the V4 states in a cross-section of all European elections based on individual data from post-election questionnaire surveys. Subsequently, I find out what are the specific causes and motivations for changes in electoral behaviour. The analysis shows that there are several different patterns of volatile behaviour in the V4 countries, but the consistent and general pattern is a high degree of electoral demobilisation in the European elections. This may be due to political attitudes or the level of trust in the European institutions. I then analyze voters' demobilization among government and opposition voters, who differ mainly in their views of the national political situation. Keywords Electoral volatility, vote switching, electoral behaviour, second-order national election theory, European Parliament elections,...
Books of financial orders of the Prague Old Town Council (1656-1677) and the system of the urban economy after the Thirty years' war
Dvořák, Tomáš ; Hojda, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Mendelová, Jaroslava (referee)
The purpose of this paper is to introduce books of financial orders of Prague Old Town Council from 1656 - 1677 (1678) as a unique historical source for studying expenses of the municipality. These books are higly significant for being the only preserved economic Old Town records from that period of time. Thanks to them it is possible to reconstruct the municipal economy in the 2nd half of the 17th century. The author of this document has tried to analyze individual types of expenses and sort them out into a system. He has recognized four basic categories: repayments to municipal creditors, expenses for the purchase of land and estates, building investments, gifts and donations, salaries and wages. The last category has been made of small number of other expenses. All the above mentioned expenses are described in detail in different chapters and interpreted in the context of Prague Old Town history. There are many other documents, manuscripts and registers stored in Prague City Archives which have been used for this purpose.
The Media Image of the Political Protests Organised by the Society Milion Chvilek
Sehnalová, Anna ; Tuček, Milan (advisor) ; Dvořák, Tomáš (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to analyze the influence of media ownership on media depiction of anti-government protests in 2019 organized by a civic organization Milion Chvilek (Million Moments for Democracy) in daily newspapers Lidové noviny and Hospodářské noviny through a comparative content analysis. Lidové noviny is a part of MAFRA media group owned by current Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš with his ownership share placed in a trust managed by his wife and other close associates. Daily newsprint and other publications in this media group found themselves in a situation where they had to report about protests focused on their de facto owner. A public debate centered around Andrej Babiš's possible conflict of interest has been ongoing since his entry into politics. Babiš's strong position in the media industry is one of the debate's focal points. According to his critics, this position could enable him to manipulate public mood which would provide him with an unfair advantage in the political arena. On a selected sample of articles about 2019 protests published in the above-mentioned newspapers, this media analysis strives to unveil to what extent the coverage, tone and space for commentaries from politicians and other public actors in Lidové noviny differ from Hospodářské noviny, which is deemed most...
