Fathers'motivations for the presence at childbirth and their experiences in the sociological perspective
Krajíčková, Michaela ; Dudová, Radka (advisor) ; Lupač, Petr (referee)
This theses focuses on finding out the reasons for fathers to be present at childbirth and how they experience childbirth. These goals are viewed from a sociological point of view and therefore the topic is connected with sociological theories and also society's view of the father at birth. The theoretical part also mentions the development of society in terms of fathers at childbirth and related changes in society in connection with intensive fatherhood. The empirical part uses an interpretive phenomenological analysis in the form of a qualitative interview, which is important for a better understanding of respondents. It was found out what are the motives of fathers to go to birth, how they perceive the presence of fathers and how they experience the birth itself. The thesis discusses the influence of personality characteristics on the motives and experiences of fathers based on the information obtained. This research is exploratory and is perceived as a preliminary research for, in the future, quantitative research, which will develop the obtained information and results and thus it will be possible to find out possible connections between the motives for presence at birth and personality characteristics. Based on the information obtained from the interviews, we could say that the most common...
Stratification of Internet users in the Czech Republic
Nádvorník, Daniel ; Lupač, Petr (advisor) ; Podaná, Zuzana (referee)
The aim of the bachelor's thesis is to design a class scheme of Czech Internet users and at the same time to present a sufficient argumentative basis for such a theoretical construct. Following the research tradition of the digital divide and the Bourdieuan concept of capital, this work tries to connect these aspects both on a theoretical and empirical level and at the same time critically evaluate usefulness of used research tool, research design and conclusions they provide from data analysis and own questionnaire survey. In the analytical part, the author presents the method of conceptualization and transformation of data, the link to other research in the field of the digital divide and presents an exploratory analytical view of the structure of Czech Internet users. The analysis presents the distinguishing characteristics of the given clusters, which arose from the performed cluster analysis. In conclusion, the author states that the concept of digital capital is a suitable research tool for capturing digital inequalities among Czech Internet users. Keywords: Digital divide, internet, digital access, digital skills, internet usage outcomes, attitudes towards the Internet, internet activities, cluster analysis
The relationship between sustainability and wellbeing its connection with mitigation and adaptation policies
Čižinská, Kateřina ; Richter, Eva (advisor) ; Lupač, Petr (referee)
The topic of this bachelor thesis is the relationship between sustainability and wellbeing and its connection with mitigation and adaptation policies. For the relationship between sustainability and wellbeing, the history and definitions of the terms themselves are described and then the overall multidimensionality of the concept and the individual dimensions are shown through the relational theory of wellbeing. Subsequently, the interconnection of these concepts is discussed along with the disregard for a full understanding of wellbeing in an economic growth orientation. For the mitigation and adaptation section, 11 studies were selected. At the end, the conclusions are presented: Wellbeing is often understood in a limited way, while it is clear from the theories described that wellbeing is also conditioned by the environment, and environmental sustainability is a necessary condition for wellbeing. Similarly, mitigation and adaptation policies have been shown to have some link to wellbeing, but often wellbeing has not been understood as important and has been put in the background of research. However, the relationship between sustainability and wellbeing is also important for further research on climate change mitigation and adaptaton policies.
Menstruation in the area of paid work
Poncarová, Petra ; Dudová, Radka (advisor) ; Lupač, Petr (referee)
(in English) This thesis deals with how women experience and interpret menstruation in the world of paid work. First, the theoretical basis concerning menstruating bodies in society and the position of women in the workplace in connection with menstruation is presented. Through exploratory research and grounded theory method, the work seeks to capture, primarily on the basis of answers obtained from qualitative interviews, how Czech women cope with menstruation in the workplace. The main research question is "How do women experience and interpret menstruation in the world of paid work?" Secondary research questions are "Do women experience discrimination during work because of menstruation?" and "Do women think that menstruation limits their work performance?" The responses from the communication partners show that women face a number of obstacles in doing their paid work, which can discriminate them. Furthermore, it has been found that menstruation more or less restricts women in their work performance. And the thesis focuses, among other things, on how women talk about menstruation in their work environments.
Technological unemployment
Miňovský, Michael ; Vlček, Josef (advisor) ; Lupač, Petr (referee)
(in English): Will robotisation lead to unemployment? What will be the society-wide impact of automation? Will it affect the economy? And what is the general macroeconomic and microeconomic context of such developments? These and many other questions are asked throughout this thesis. On the next 70 or so pages, a detailed overview of changes connected with robotics revolution is provided, while the primary topic is the issue of technological unemployment. Based on the study of historical evidence, there is a proposition pronounced on a qualitative difference between current technology and earlier technological milestones consisting in the ability of the machines to substitute not only routine manual work but the non-routine cognitive tasks as well. This hypothesis is then being developed and analysed through a more detailed examination of the fundamental differences of robotics and the current technological foundation of industry and services. The method employed is a critical analysis of other authors' works, thanks to which it was possible to present impressive results such as the list of probabilities of automating a wide spectrum of jobs in the course of the next few decades based on an extrapolation of the current level of progress in machine learning and data mining. In the end, a synthesis...

Men and their lifeworld in beer advertisements
Svobodová, Lucie ; Lupač, Petr (advisor) ; Vinopal, Jiří (referee)
This thesis deals with the widely discussed topic of gender stereotypes. Most of the attention of experts and also the general public in this area is focused on the issues of stereotypes associated with women's roles. This work attempts to inspect the other - the men's - side of gender stereotypes. The aim is to reconstruct the male stereotypes and their lifeworld in commercials which from this perspective focus on perhaps still typically masculine product: beer. The presence of traditional stereotypes of male and female roles is observed at the same time. The research problem is solved through a content analysis of beer advertisements and reconstruction of the lifeworld of men in them.
Technological unemployment
Miňovský, Michael ; Vlček, Josef (advisor) ; Lupač, Petr (referee)
Will robotization lead to unemployment? What will be the society-wide impact of automation? Will it affect the economy? And what is the general macroeconomic and microeconomic context of such developments? These and many other questions are asked throughout this thesis. On the next 60 or so pages, a detailed overview of changes connected with robotics revolution is provided, while the primary topic is the issue of technological unemployment. Based on the study of historical evidence, there is a proposition pronounced on a qualitative difference between current technology and earlier technological milestones consiting in the ability of the machines to substitute not only routine manual work but the non-routine cognitive tasks as well. This hypothesis is then being developed and analyzed through a more detailed examination of the fundamental differences of robotics and the current technological foundation of industry and services. Viewpoint of other authors is also included as the objective of this thesis's author is not to be rediscovering well-known facts but to enrich the stint of knowledge in general. Thanks to this, it is possible to present some impressive results such as a list of probabilities of computerization of a wide spectrum of jobs for the next decades based on an extrapolation of the current...
