Media Literacy as Perceived by Key Agents of the Media Education of Adults
Šťastná, Lucie ; Jirák, Jan (advisor) ; Pavličíková, Helena (referee) ; Vrabec, Norbert (referee)
The topic of the dissertation is media literacy as perceived by key agents of the media education of adults. Media literacy is a term that can be viewed differently and whose content changes over time. For this reason, the term is introduced in its entirety. While the views of politicians and theorists can be derived from published legislation and scientific literature, the views of people most engaged in the development of adult media literacy in practice are not known. Therefore, the dissertation focuses on how the individual agents of adult media education (organizers, participants and officials) perceive the concept of media literacy, whether they share a common perspective on media literacy and whether it is possible to characterize representatives of individual concepts. The prelude to this phase of the research was a qualitative content analysis, which provided a typology of opportunities for adult media education in the Czech Republic. This was then used to select the most diverse sample of educational events and informants for the main phase of the qualitative research. Semi- structured in-depth interviews were conducted with informants. As a result of the data analysis, seven dimensions of media literacy were identified, the various combinations of which formed different concepts of media...
Framing of alcohol in the Czech press and its comparison in the period before and during COVID-19 pandemic
Andresek, Šimon ; Nečas, Vlastimil (advisor) ; Jirák, Jan (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on how the topic of alcohol consumption was framed in the Czech press in two subsequent periods: 2018-2019 and 2020-2021. The emphasis is put on comparing the findings from both research periods, both in terms of frames and other variables studied, such as the topic, the source cited, or the relationship between the sex of the protagonists and the narrative(s) present. The theoretical part of the thesis discusses the influence of media content on public sphere, through the description of the phenomenon of agenda-setting. Then the framing itself is presented, both through the perspective of the agenda-setting theory (as a subset of it), but also as a completely autonomous phenomenon. Different perspectives on framing are presented which are then illustrated with several spatiotemporally distinct studies that address the media framing of alcohol use. The analytical part consists of two methodological components - qualitative and quantitative content analysis. First, qualitative content analysis is used in order to find and describe issue-specific frames at the forefront of the generic conflict frame. Subsequently, the presence of the described specific conflict narratives in both research periods is quantified and the findings are compared. The results suggest that alcohol...

Wojnarová, Daniela ; Köpplová, Barbara (advisor) ; Jirák, Jan (referee)
The thesis explores the everyday life of British society in the 1930s, which will be examined in two ways. One is the construction of everyday, ordinary life using academic and scientific literature. The second source of information is the image of British society during the period in question through the lens of detective fiction from the pen of British writer Agatha Christie. The thesis juxtaposes these two perspectives, compares them, and looks for similarities and differences. The text of the thesis is divided into two main parts. The first part aims to introduce the study and the nature of research of everyday life, to outline the nature of the 1930s for the British people of the time, and to introduce the life and work of the writer Agatha Christie. The introductory chapter attempts to briefly describe the theme of the research of everyday life. Through a broader lens, the thesis looks at the historical context of the period in question. It then examines the social phenomena that influenced and shaped the society-wide mood and atmosphere of the 1930s. The key chapter of the theoretical part of the thesis then looks at interpersonal relationships, the fulfilment of leisure time, working hours, personal hygiene and grooming, shopping, eating, housing, transport, travel, culture and fashion in...

Media education through the lens of the professional teaching community
Píšová, Denisa ; Jirák, Jan (advisor) ; Köpplová, Barbara (referee)
The aim of the thesis entitled Media Education through the lens of the professional teaching community is to identify the issues and topics that appear in the discourse on media education in the Czech Republic, especially from the perspective of teachers and experts dealing with this issue. Using theoretical foundations based primarily on the framework curricula and surveys from recent years and content analysis of online discussions under news articles, the state of media education in the Czech Republic will be investigated. These findings will be subsequently verified and questioned through in-depth interviews with stakeholders from the school and educational institutions environment. Thus, two qualitative methods will be used in the analytical part, which will increase the reliability of the research results. A secondary purpose of the research is the possibility of further testing the resulting hypotheses or questions, for example through a questionnaire survey. Thanks to in-depth interviews, it is also possible to gain a broader insight into the issues of contemporary media education, which has been the focus of few studies or surveys in the Czech Republic in recent years. This is also important because of the forthcoming revisions of the Framework Educational Programmes, which should improve...

Kejhova, Natalie ; Jirák, Jan (advisor) ; Miessler, Jan (referee)

Journalists always held the responsibility of portraying information to the public on major events.

The findings of this thesis showed that the publication Mladá fronta Dnes overall published articles that were informative and matter of fact whereas the publication Hospodářské noviny resulted in being more critical to the regulations that were issued by the government resulting in more of a discussion. Overall this thesis looked at how media frames are used by journalists in articles to portray particular ideological standpoints. Keywords Pandemic, Coivid-19, Media, Media Frames
