Sogel, David ; Spurný, Matěj (advisor) ; Mrňka, Jaromír (referee)
The bachelor thesis Coexistence of Czech and German employees of the Krkonošké papírny in Hostinné between 1932-1949 deals with the development of the company Eichmann a spol. and its nationalized successor, company Krkonošské papírny. It focuses not only on the period mentioned in the title of the thesis but also it tries more or less to capture the whole almost 100-year long phase, during which the company was owned by the Eichmann family. A part of this thesis is also a characterization of the company operations up to the beginning of 1949, only a few years after the nationalization of the company, before the original conglomerate was divided definitively. The topic that connects each and every chapter is the interest in the participants' influence on the functioning and orientation of the company. The thesis is divided into two parts. The first part describes the history of the company closely connected with its owners from the 19th century until their displacement from Czechoslovakia after 1945. The second part describes the company operations from the individual employees' point of view, with the intention to reveal the changes of the inner structure of the company, primarily on the basis of medical reports between 1939-1945, the World War II period. Some of the cases are explicitly...

Politics and Social Practice of Collective Violence in Bohemian Lands 1944-1946
Mrňka, Jaromír ; Spurný, Matěj (advisor) ; Havelka, Miloš (referee) ; Konrád, Ota (referee)
and key words Politics and Social Practice of Collective Violence in Bohemian Lands 1944-1946 Doctoral Thesis Jaromír Mrňka, Charles University, Prague, 2017. The thesis is focused on the acts of collective violence that took place in the territory of the Bohemian lands in the period between years 1944 and 1946. Despite the traditional interpretation of the May 1945 as a crucial reversal, the general explanation focuses on the collective violence as a phenomenon overlapping traditional turning points. Remaining high amount of violent interactions is an element connecting the final war operations with the first weeks and months after. Applying concepts of political sociology (Charles Tilly), social psychology (Philip Zimbardo) and microsociology (Randall Collins) the thesis strive to capture interdependent nature of collective violence between its structural preconditions and situational dynamics. Based on the quantitative evaluation of the acts of collective violence, the first step outlines a macro social topography of collective violence. The main point is an identification of key actors of the politics of collective violence and their correlation to basic configurations of particular political regimes (i.e. occupational regime of the so called Protectorate and limited democratic regime of...
