Typography of tabloid press
Stárek, Václav ; Slanec, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Láb, Filip (referee)
My bachelor thesis "Typography of tabloid press" deals with two basic themes. At first I attempt to designate and depict such typographic elements, which are peculiar to the contemporary Czech tabloids. After that I would like to compare these "building stones" of tabloid graphics with the components, which are used by so-called broadsheet printed media. I am going to devote the end of my thesis to evaluation whether - and as the case may be in which particular features - domestic prestige newspapers approach or even match with their tabloid counterparts. For comparison I have chosen three representative samples among both types of prints. On the one hand there are dailies called Aha!, Blesk, and Šíp, on the other hand can be found these newspapers: Hospodářské noviny, Lidové noviny and Mladá fronta Dnes. In terms of spatial determination I want to focus only on their front pages. After thorough consideration I have reached the conclusion that if I were to analyse whole issues properly, I would exceed the appropriate extension of my text multiple times. As far as time aspect is concerned, I circumscribe my exploration to one workweek - from the 18th to 22nd of June 2007. The main reason, why I was forced to narrow the selection, was the fact that Hospodářské noviny were distributed only from Monday...

A year in scout in photography
Pecháčková, Alžběta ; Géla, František (advisor) ; Slanec, Jaroslav (referee)
The theoretical part of this bachelor thesis is divided into four chapters. The first part consists of a short description of the history of the scout movement, furthermore, it conveys the circumstances of the origin of Scouting and its spreading all over the world. I pay attention to both the world and the Czech environment. The second chapter explains and clarifies the main ideas and values of the scout movement and its three "foundation stones" - the scout promise, law, and motto plus daily order. The third chapter presents some of the Czech Scouting magazines and their characteristics, however, the area of interest is focused only on currently published titles. I diverted from the thesis by adding another chapter about the media image of Scouting based on selected examples to keep the work up to date. The practical part is a book consisting of photographs that I took in the period from August to December 2020 on a summer camp and other scout events. The images are arranged in such a way as to outline the diversity of scout activities and so that readers can get an idea of what a normal day at a scout camp looks like.

Falta, Matěj ; Slanec, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Groman, Martin (referee)
Diploma thesis Te splendors and miseries of DTP: desktop publishing and common practice of Czech publishing houses tries to map the current technical and personnel aspect of the DTP departments within Czech publishing houses. It uses a quantitative method of questionnaire survey. In the practical part of the research, it managed to obtain data from nine of the ten selected publishers. It was chosen on the basis of their readership with the help of data from the Union of Publishers. Undoubtedly, the main contribution of this thesis is the topic itself - text focuses on a group of media professionals, who are crucial for proper functioning of the print media, although it is constantly overlooked by academia. Tis diploma thesis does not bring any revolutionary knowledge about the feld of print media in the Czech Republic, although with the obtained data it is possible to at least partially analyze jobs and style of work of media professionals in DTP departments. Te work is a small quantitative contribution to the academic discussion, which unfortunately is not currently taking place, although it should.
The role of proofreading in modern media
Platil, Daniel ; Slanec, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Halada, Jan (referee)
Bachelor's thesis "Proofreading and its role in today's media on the example of the magazine Respekt" consists of two parts. The first theoretical section mainly focuses on the definition of key concepts, proofreading work, conventions, and rules concerning interventions into the texts. It also attempts to put the change of the profession into the historical context, which is mainly related to the rapid technical development of the polygraphic industry. The practical section subsequently analytically verified readers' satisfaction with the level of linguistic competence of the magazine Respekt through a questionnaire. Following the results of the questionnaire that indicated worsening quality proofreading of ten selected issues from the years 1997, 2007 and 2017 was made to assess whether there have been any changes concerning the level of linguistic competence. This thesis attempts to put uncovered shortcomings both into the context of the era and the editorial work of the analysed media. On the occasion, language editor Petra Švehlová directly from magazine Respekt was approached - she attempted to interpret and evaluate the acquired data. Proofreading that was made did uncover certain misconducts, however, did not confirm the initial hypothesis itself that was supported by the research mentioned...
