Nudity as a source of (moral) provocation
Polesný, Ondřej ; Hájek, Martin (advisor) ; Sloboda, Zdeněk (referee)
Bachelor thesis "Nudity as a source of (moral) provocation" deals with different reception of nudity. Nakedness in contemporary western culture, as a relationship between an unclothed body and the gaze of others, is variously legitimated through contexts of representation. For example, in the tradition of Old Testament nakedness cannot be disconnected from sexuality. A reference to biblical tradition (in the event of nakedness) is all the time more or less valid. Now, Nudity, sex and sexuality are discussed, coded and classified more than ever in contemporary culture through magazines, television, radio etc. It shows precisely how pervasive nudity, sex and sexuality are, and how easily it encroaches into areas previously considered non-sexual. I try to define areas in which is nakedness in conflict with specific notions, split contexts into classification and determine participants and their views of nakedness. Above all, I deal with conflict between nakedness and explicitly expressed morality. In my work, I exploit qualitative analyze of press - in the concrete I analyze articles of newspapers.

Boys in social media: perspective of gender identity
Brouns, Eliška Donostia ; Hájek, Martin (advisor) ; Tesárek, Jan (referee)
This bachelor's thesis deals with the topic of boys on social media. It focuses mainly on gender aspects of this phenomenon. Based on a research and study of professional literature, and a qualitative method of in-depth interviews, it points out certain problems in the process of creating one's own identity, and explains aspects of this phenomenon. In-depth interviews establish if there is a certain relationship between the creation of one's own identity and gender in both online and offline environments, and whether these two types of identities intersect. The findings are explained on the basis of citations and categories exerted from conducted interviews with the respondents.
Securing cities: 'Urban resilience' as a technology of government
Svitková, Katarína ; Hynek, Nikola (advisor) ; Hájek, Martin (referee) ; Chandler, David (referee)
Svitková, K. 2019. Securing cities: 'Urban resilience' as a technology of government, 282 pp. Doctoral thesis (PhD) Charles University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Institute of Political Studies. Department of Security Studies. Academic supervisor: doc. PhDr. PNDr. Nikola Hynek, M. A., PgDip Res, PhD Abstract Resilience has become a buzzword in policy and practice of 'securing' and 'developing' cities and urban populations. This study discusses the use of this concept in the context of governance of subjectivities. More specifically, reflecting its empirical focus, it poses critical questions about constructing and promoting 'urban resilience subjects', and scrutinizes the process of internalization of resilience as a self-governance technique, self-imposed on and by citizens for their own good. The purpose is to problematize resilience as a universal tool or strategy to govern cities and their inhabitants, be it in ordinary or extreme circumstances. The study ventures beyond the traditional critique of neoliberalism to ask questions about what resilience does in terms of a performative governance, exploring the disciplinary and biopolitical nature of this process. Keywords resilience, governmentality, urban, cities, power, biopolitics
