Vorlíček, Radek ; Samek, Tomáš (advisor) ; Bittnerová, Dana (referee) ; Synková, Hana (referee)
Radek Vorlíček ABSTRACT The dissertation explores the dynamics of social marginality and dominance in educational settings. It explores social distance dynamics among pupils in elementary school, and its impact on their position in social hierarchy. I focus on social interaction in a group of children, and record the context in which the inclusion or exclusion of non-dominant identities take place. Special attention is paid to the role of schools in the process of boundary constructions. Larger framework of the research is integration, segregation and assimilation tendencies of school systems. The dissertation is based upon long-term qualitative inductive and ethnographic fieldwork. The central method of my fieldwork is observation. To some extent, the research was conducted in the framework of goffmanian interactionism. The data for this study have been collected over a period of ten months in twelve elementary schools located in various regions of the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. The dissertation is structured in four parts: (1) Introduction, referring to the aim and structure of the dissertation; (2) Methodology, presenting the research process, strategies and methods as well as data analysis, theoretical and methodological discussions, reflexivity and ethical aspects; (3) Elementary schools in...

Halamíček, David ; Stracený, Josef (advisor) ; Samek, Tomáš (referee)
The work is dealing with Vaclav Havel's second presidential term, namely with three aspects which were determining fulfilment of his duties. It is specifically focusing on break up of Czechoslovakia, economic transformation of the country and Havel's opinion of voting systems. The work is trying to prove interconnection of these three points and offers a detailed insight into the matter. It then shows that Vaclav Havel as the last Czechoslovak president had to face these issues and lead an uneven battle with them. There is a stress on shorter two year term of lawmakers which influenced negative development in both parts of the country and why Havel insisted so much on it. KEYWORDS Break up of Czechoslovakia, economic transformation, electoral system
