Carpathia - An insight into the contemporary studies of the periphery
Křižková, Aneta ; Činátlová, Blanka (advisor) ; Hrdlička, Josef (referee)
The thesis deals with a selected literary works by contemporary authors of the Central European area, which are associated with the landscape of Transcarpathian Ukraine. The thesis primarily focuses on the issue of imagining space from the narrator's perspective and a conception of its own identity in a relation to a referenced space, topography, collective memory. The initial precondition for interpreting texts is the peripheral character of the region and its features, such as nostalgy, memories of a place that is no longer, a fascination for exotism etc. Using a literary-comparative approach, the following texts are disscussed: Maroš Krajňak's Carpathia, Ziemowit Szczerek's Přijde Mordor a sežere nás aneb Tajná historie Slovanů, and Jinací by Taras Prochasko. Concerning space visualisation and its narrative potential related to the narrator's identity, the theoretical basis of the work is experimentaly set in a postcolonial framework. As such, the thesis intends to capture the resonance of the material in another culture (ie in the Czech, Slovak and Polish environment). Key words Central European literature, cultural context, periphery, postcolonialism, identity, landscape, Transcarpathian Ukraine

Zkáza lidství - synthesis of dystopia, apokalypse and mysticism
Křižková, Aneta ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Machek, Jakub (referee)
Bachelor thesis focuses on detailed description and thorough analysis of an unusual science fiction novel Zkaza lidstvi by a czech unknown author Josef Akana. The novel (written in 1928) seems to be rather problematic to classify, since it borderlines across various genres such as science fiction, utopia and apocalypse which are represented in the opening chapters. This bachelor thesis analyses the tendency of czech interwar literature, summarizes real war threat common themes and reflects general concerns about social development which also happened to be extremely emphasized in the literature of twenties. Key words Josef Akana, Zkaza lidstvi, science fiction, utopia, dystopia, apocalypse, interwar literature
