Narrative structures in Indiana Jones film series
Jeřábek, Jan Lucián ; Novotný, David Jan (advisor) ; Štoll, Martin (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on identifying narrative structures which can be observed throughout the Indiana Jones film series from the first episode (1981) to the fourth episode (2008). It analyses the film reviews and focuses on the way in which their authors have reflected the narrative structures. The thesis also aims on the analysis of the relationship between the positive or negative nature of the reviews and the overall success of each of the films of the series. Beyond that, the thesis deals with the presence of the myths in the film series Indiana Jones and evaluates to what extent it is being reflected in each of the reviews and in the reception of the audience. The qualitative content analysis of the reviews published in journals that specialise in the coverage of film news has proven the existence of a specific narrative structure that is present throughout the Indiana Jones film series. The analysis and subsequent comparison of the reviews has shown that the film critique consensually agrees that the specific narrative structure was respect in each of the films of the series. The analysis of the reviews has also proven the existence of a direct relationship between the nature of the reviews and the overall success of the films of the series.

Pukovcová, Klára ; Osvaldová, Barbora (advisor) ; Novotný, David Jan (referee)
Practical bachelor thesis Česká travesti scéna- soubor rozhovorů documents the Czech drag and travesti subculture.

The practical part consists of five journalistic interviews that capture the experiences of Czech drag and travesti artists. In semi-structured interviews, the artists talk about their own experiences or the challenges they face. They mention, for example, the impact of the American reality talent show RuPaul's Drag Race, which helped make drag globally visible, public prejudice, or financial valuation. The goal of the bachelor thesis is to create a series of interviews that will introduce this community to the reader. Additionally, the thesis describes the history, present and outlines the future of the Czech travesti/drag scene.
The perception of the term activist journalism by czech journalists
Kumsová, Ilike ; Osvaldová, Barbora (advisor) ; Novotný, David Jan (referee)
This bachelor thesis tries to anchor the term activist journalism on the basis of how Czech journalists perceive it. The thesis focuses on the historical development of objectivity, as well as the currents of journalism that deviate from it, global definitions of activism and advocacy, and these same definitions associated with branches of journalism. Objectivity and its relevance in 21st century journalism is included in the theoretical part of the thesis, along with a polemic. The practical part is devoted to qualitative semi-structured in-depth interviews with six Czech journalists and their understanding of objectivity, activism in journalism and other topics discussed in the theoretical part of the thesis. On their basis, the boundaries of Czech journalists' understanding of activist journalism are suggested as advocacy of correct opinion, absence of criticism (of a given topic) and concealment of reality are defined. At the same time, it was discovered that there is a split between what Czech journalists understand as activist journalism and its academic definition. Ilike Kumsová

The podcast form in this case incorporates several well-known and defined radio genres. It combines elements of the classic interview, documentary, but also reportage. Listeners of the practical output (podcast) should learn a lot of summarized information about the historically significant place used by former rulers and presidents, led by Tomas Garrigue Masaryk, as their summer residence. The result of the work should therefore be a mapping of the site in a varied and attractive, yet informative form.

Protasevičová, Alexandra ; Novotný, David Jan (advisor) ; Čeňková, Jana (referee)
The thesis deals with a comparison and compilation of the media response to the various versions of Karel Jaromír Erben's The Bouquet. The subject of comparison is the multiple reviews, starting with those published in the press immediately after the first historical publication of the poetry collection, followed by the reaction to the theatrical production at the Semafor theatre in 1972, to the reactions to the more modern adaptation in 2009. The theatrical production at the National Theatre, which premiered in 2019, was chosen for a further appropriate comparison. The thesis also focuses on film production, specifically Bouquet, directed by F. A. Brabec from 2000. The aim of the thesis is to answer the question of how the different versions of Erben's Bouquet differ, and what causes the significant differences. Another question is why artists feel the need to return to the work and reinterpret the story according to them. The thesis is a critical-historical analysis, bringing a media perspective, but also a cultural-political one, with a focus on the personal dimension.
