Czechs at world's fairs
Ulmanová, Kristýna ; Hlavačka, Milan (referee) ; Pokorná, Magdaléna (referee)
Kristýna Ulmanová: Czechs at World's Fairs Annotation and key words: In the introduction, the thesis author provides a typology of Czech travelers who visited one of the world exhibitions in the second half of the nineteenth century. Then the work focuses this typology on two types of travelers, namely the type of traveler-tourist and the type of traveler-scholar. The type of traveler-tourists is first defined by the contemporary understanding of the concept of "tourist." Then the conditions in which Czech tourists traveled to the World's Fairs are described, where they were housed and how they ate. Subsequently, the author analyzes the reasons why the Czech traveler-tourist traveled to the exhibition, what were his expectations, and whether those expectations were realistic. The work also captures the emerging phenomenon of mass trips abroad. Part of the work also deals with cultural stereotypes and self-reflection of Czech tourists, provoked by contact with other countries and their inhabitants. The traveler- scholar is characterized by comparison with the traveler-tourist. Furthermore, the author pays attention to international congresses, which were an integral part of the World's Fairs and in which the traveler-scholar often participated. The example of Unity of the Encouragement of Industry in Bohemia...
Socio-cultural activity of the Czech clergy in the 1860's: the vicariate of Sedlčany under the leadership of B. M. Kulda 1860-1870
Zouzal, Tomáš ; Velek, Luboš (advisor) ; Hlavačka, Milan (referee)
The main topic of this study is the role of the lower echelons of the clergy in Czech society in the 1860's. Against a backdrop of the broader socio-political context, the study focuses on the Vicariate of Sedlčany, where the writer and patriotic priest Beneš Metod Kulda served as vicar from 1860 to 1870. The work deals with the identity of the ethnically Czech lower echelons of the clergy, their mentality and activities. Special emphasis is placed on how they coped with the liberalization of society, on their work in education and their attitudes towards national issues. The study depicts the mentality and activities of the clergy on the basis of specific examples, which can frequently be termed typical. At the same time, it describes unusual events that in some cases attracted attention beyond the borders of the vicariate itself. In conflict situations, the perspective of the clergy are also compared to the views of their ideological opponents. An analysis of the relationships and mentalities of the main actors reveals the multifaceted background of social life in the years when decisions were being made about the future direction of the Habsburg Monarchy and the Catholic Church.

Ritualization of death and dying in the Revolution of 1848: the cult of the dead
Randák, Jan ; Hlavačka, Milan (advisor) ; Řepa, Milan (referee)
non-traditional view of the subject of the revolutionary year of 1848. While a vast majority of the existing research has been focused on the course of the revolution, particular political camps and leaders of the contemporary movement, I have put emphasis on a phenomenon seemingly concealed and disregarded. My attention was aimed on the dead, the victims of the events of this hectic period. Death as such has indeed been a traditional interest of historians, nevertheless, reception and reflection thereof in a political or rather a revolutionary context is a fairly less regarded subject. Therefore, I have laid out an indeed concrete topíc in my thesis - ritualisation of death and dying during the revolution of 1848. A simple question is apparent: why study this subject of the dead and victims in the Czech context when no major fights occured here and thus the number of fatalities was not extreme? After reading my thesis the answer com es up as obviously as the question does: despite a relatively low body count of the Pentecost events in June 1848, a cult of the dead and victims of the revolution 1848 is present in the course of the few restless months. The cult of the dead was a sophisticated means of using the victims to promote particular interests of both the reformatory and revolutionary camp as well as...

Řezníčková, Kateřina ; Hlavačka, Milan (advisor) ; Lenderová, Milena (referee) ; Rýdl, Karel (referee)
This thesis examines the development, character and routine of an ordinary day of Czech middle schools. The first chapter outlines the changes in middle school education throughout the 'long' 19th Century. The summary of these changes begins at the end of the 18th Century, the time of the educational reforrns introduced by Maria Theresa and Joseph II, and is followed by a brief summary of the changes in the first half of the 19th Century. Detailed research has been done into the history of middle schools, from 1848 (from Bonitz-Exner Outline, a fundamental document which influenced changes in the educational system for many years) until the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The main focus is on the period from 1867; this year was the catalyst for the major development of Czech middle schools. Briefly mentioned are the changes and restrictions caused by the First World War; there is also a section dedicated to middle school education for girls.

The structure of the school year and the daily school time-table is also examined. Detailed study has been made of marking and the context and demands of final exams. Furtherrnore,...
Decade of fusions, separations and territorial boundaries changes of municipalities of political district Smíchov 1919-28
Boubín, Jiří ; Hlavačka, Milan (advisor) ; Semotanová, Eva (referee)
Předmětem předkládané práce jsou územní změny v obcích, jeden z neprávem poněkud opomíjených feno-ménů první republiky. Přitom se jednalo o jev v této době v českých zemích velice rozšířený, ba mohli bychom říci masový. I když počty realizovaných sloučení, rozloučení a změn obvodů obcí v prvním desetiletí existence samostatného československého státu jdou do stovek a dokonce se blíží až k magické tisícovce, nebyla jim do-sud věnována patřičná pozornost. Právě tato okolnost vedla k výběru tohoto tématu, které zároveň tvoří samo-statnou kapitolu našich správních dějin. Šlo o procesy společností ostře sledované, jež se tu více tu méně promít-ly do života téměř každého obyvatele obce, která takovou změnou prošla. Ale i tam, kde zůstalo pouze u žádosti, měl zahájený proces po nějaký čas značný vliv na život v obci a také na vzájemné vztahy se sousedním celkem či celky, jež měla požadovaná změna "zasáhnout". Už samotným podáním podnětu ke změně se mnohdy napros-to bezproblémové soužití lidí žijících vedle sebe v těsné blízkosti na relativně malém prostoru, ale nezřídka na katastrech dvou různých obcí, změnilo ze dne na den v rivalství, odpor, nevraživost až nenávist. Tyto negativní důsledky úspěšně i neúspěšně proběhnuvších kauz územních změn se často projevovaly ještě několik let poté. Na první pohled v sobě...

Kopřiva, Jan-Hugo ; Pokorná, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Hlavačka, Milan (referee)
The concentration of rebirthal forces on the platform of associations and organizations became a significant phenomenon in the 19th century Bohemian lands. The work will try to show what challenges the efforts of the rebirth associations had to face, and what specifics the organizations of a purely female membership had. An example of such a society was Sestry slovanské, later called Spolek slovanek, which was founded in the stormy year of 1848 and whose activity, which included both publishing and educational activities, is the subject of this work. By the synthesis of archival research and study of professional literature I will attempt to map the internal relations of the society and it's public activities.
