Latvia between Germany and Russia in the novel by M. Zariņš Calendar of Bandmaster Kociņš
Chlupáčová, Edita ; Štoll, Pavel (advisor) ; Lemeškin, Ilja (referee)
The subject of the thesis is an analysis of the novel Calendar of bandmaster Kociņš by M. Zariņš, which is considered as a dynamic structure characterised by the fact that the process of signification is always in motion and by this very motion the meaning is constituted. The observed motion takes place on two axes, firstly on the axis novel - calendar, secondly on the axis author as writer - author as producent, and thus the distancing effect arises. As understood in the thesis, the concept of distancing effect is based on the theoretical writings of B. Brecht, further elaborated by W. Benjamin and R. Barthes. The distancing effect in semiotic interpretation enables to identify the grotesque nature of the novel as hypersignification, i. e. as meaning overload, and therefore to read the novel as an open text referring to how it is made. Moreover, the workings of the distancing effect give rise to political appeal of the text which consists in the transition from competition and individualism to sharing and collectivism.

Malinová, Irina ; Lendělová, Věra (advisor) ; Lemeškin, Ilja (referee) ; Otčenášek, Jaroslav (referee)
This thesis aims to analyze the forms and ways of presentation of the cultural heritage of the chosen ethnic group, Ruthenians, by introducing the Skejusan ensemble. The work has the form of a case study and deals with the ensemble including the characteristics of its repertoire - songs, national customs and traditions. The ensemble is important for its endeavour to preserve only the Ruthenian folklore in a conservative way (unlike other Ruthenian ensembles in the Czech Republic). In this way, the interpretation of folklore does not include only isolated songs, but takes into account also the original context, in which the songs had existed in the culture. The thesis contributes by its research and its conclusions to the discussion about the problems of Ruthenian national minority, tries to characterize the complicated national identity of the Ruthenians in the multicultural milieu of the Czech Republic, and defines also the influence of this milieu on the Ruthenian culture. The work also deals with the history of migration of relatively small group of so-called Skejus Ruthenians, it analyzes and clarifies the historic route of transmission of traditions and customs during their migration from Slovakia to Romania and their subsequent movement from Romania to Czech Lands. The work also compares...

Fantová, Martina ; Lemeškin, Ilja (advisor) ; Šeferis, Vaidas (referee)
Diploma work is focused on the work of a contemporary Lithuanian prose writer Saulius Tomas Kondrotas (1953). His tales and novels are placed into the Lithuanian and world literary context. The impact of magic realism and surrealism is confirmed; an inspiration is found in the work of other authors as F. M. Dostojevskij or W. Faulkner. Kondrotas is appreciated for individual style and topics common for his work, such as a phenomenon of death, detailed recitation, border crossing of common life perception, colourful description. The tales and especially the structure of novels are full of not only biblical, but also pagan and mythy motives.
