Novák, Matěj ; Mudd, Dana (advisor) ; Podaná, Zuzana (referee)
How to adapt the work environment to people of all ages because of the generally perceived differences in work values is a large topic in the fields of management, psychology and sociology.

In addition to the analysis of the relationship between age and work values itself, the author focuses on the concept of generation as an independent variable, but finds shortcomings when analyzing said variable. The topic is anchored in the context of corporate culture because of the tight correlation with work values. The theoretical part of the thesis, in which the author attempts to summarize the current knowledge in the field of this issue, is supported by secondary data analysis in the practical part, where the author analyzes work values of a borrowed dataset for the purpose of the bachelor thesis.

The relationship with age was found for example for financial evaluation, career advancement, job interestingness, job security and the tendency to change jobs. The thesis also explored the view of managers as people intervening in the running of the corporate culture and how they perceive...

Paradoxes in current civilization in the context of sociology of food
Vojtíšková, Lucie ; Duffková, Jana (advisor) ; Mudd, Dana (referee)
I deal with the relation between food and society in this work. I write about foodways influenced by society and culture, where are these foodways occured. I mention development of food since antique period till this time. I mention role, which played diet in the relation between nations, but even within one society. There are few sociologist, who are interested in food, but in spite of this, this work points out some of them, especially Norbert Elias. I place emphasis on actual themes associated with food and eating. These problems are hunger, obesity, thin cult, eating disorders. Then I point out eating trends like vegetarianism, bio food, genetically modified food, fast food and slow food. The tackled question is why is a lot of food on the one side of the Earth, but there are many people diing of malnutrition on the second side of the Earth. Why people are becoming fatter and fatter in western societies, when thin cult and desire for slim body is very popular. The consequence of this is eating disorders. I draw attention on the new trends in nourishment, there are emphasized healthy diet, however fast food restaurants are still very popular. People start to prefer natural food, nevertheless scientists manipulate with genes and produce genetically modified food. When we look on these paradoxies...
The imperative of feminine beauty
Myslivcová, Klára ; Duffková, Jana (advisor) ; Mudd, Dana (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with one of the most viable ideas within the Euro-American territory that accentuates the distinction between men and women and therefore maintains the "mystic demarcation line" that Virginia Woolf talked about. It is the idea that only women are obliged to "be beautiful". The primary objective of this work is to lift this conviction from the common (biologically-essentialist), trouble-free understanding and to uncover it in the light of social constructivism as a mere myth; to show that the myth of beauty - as it is called in this thesis - is originally our human work, not the work of nature (or God), and that its hidden ambition is nothing less than preserving the social - patriarchal - status quo. It is a purely intentional myth aimed at the disadvantage of women, which is, however, again and again reproduced unrecognised within the process of socialisation: first of all by the family, school, (mass) media and the industry of (feminine) beauty - these factors are called the guardians of the myth of beauty for the purpose of the thesis.
