Šafaříková, Jana ; Soukup, Václav (advisor) ; Horáková, Hana (referee) ; Jirka, Luděk (referee)
Despite its geographical distance and the specific ways in which the state of Australia came into existence two centuries ago, both Europe and Australia share a number of similarities in their recent cultural, social and political development, with Australia to some extent anticipating trends which later also appear in Europe. Two of the most widely discussed issues, that have dominated public and political debates in Australia for decades, are related to immigration and the politics of multiculturalism, both of which form the very pillars on which the national and cultural identity of Australia is based upon. Especially within the last years, the questions of immigration and multiculturalism have also entered with full force the public and political discourse in Europe, with both topics gaining a prominent place in the debate. However, while Europe has been made aware of these issues at last during and after the migration crisis of 2015, in Australia, they have been present for a substantial part of the state's existence, and more prominently since the 1990s when the One Nation Party, a political party in many aspects similar to the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) in Germany and the Rassemblement national (RN) in France, gained substantial electoral success. The dissertation presents a...

Bláha, Jan Daniel ; Soukup, Martin (advisor) ; Soukup, Václav (referee)
Cultural Aspects of Cartographic Creation: Use of Mental Maps in Cross-cultural Research Abstract: Diploma thesis deals with study of interdisciplinary issue of cultural aspects of cartographic creation. The first part of the work consists of theoretical introduction dealing with the map con- tent, map stylistics and map language, in which maps show the greatest cultural differences. The map figures here in a role of the image of reality and visual manifestation of culture. The analogy between a map and a classical language (linguistic anthropology) and the analogy between early maps and primitive cultures' maps are described. Beside the language, as determinants of the human spatial perception and other categories related to the map creation could be mentioned the environment, the experiences and the society, in which man lives. Several examples of so- called cultural map styles, especially from Australia and Oceania, are introduced as well. In the methodical part of the work in connection with cultural-anthropological research a method of cognitive maps, respectively mental maps of map users and map makers is discussed in detail. Just these maps are suitable to explore the cultural particularities of cartographic creation. The application part of the work presents the results of field research of mental...

Sečková, Kateřina ; Soukup, Václav (advisor) ; Soukup, Martin (referee)
Job migration is a very developed phenomenon in the world today. After 1989 many foreigners from all over the world started coming to the Czech Republic. Also the mutual relations between Spain and the Czech Republic began to reinforce in all aspects. It was not only Spanish tourists who came to Czech Republic but also university students, specialized workers and businessmen, who came for longer periods. Moreover, after the entry of the Czech Republic to the European Union the process of employing foreigners became even easier for European Union citizens. Nowadays there is a Spanish minority living in the Czech Republic. This minority is formed mainly by men, official statistics (to May 31st, 2008) allege 498 persons. Spanish people in the Czech Republic live mainly in Prague (because of the biggest job market, seat of business of many companies and schools.) This work deals with the adaptation strategies of Spanish teachers of Spanish language to the conditions in the Czech Republic. The aim was to find out how the process of adaptation of the chosen group proceeds. The qualitative research was chosen for the data acquisition, the main method was a direct unstructured interviewing and side methods were participant observation and diagnostic drawing. From October 2006 to August 2008 I carried out eight...

Complex and its relation to the motivational part of personality
Opatrný, Martin ; Borecký, Vladimír (advisor) ; Soukup, Václav (referee)
The submitted essay focuses on the very broad and problematic idea of complex which is characterized as "king road to unconsciousness" by Car1 Gustav Jung. The aim ofthe essay is to identify and theoretically describe the fundamentals of the complex-phenomenon and to point out its relation to the motivational part of personality. The basic hypothesis of the essay is the presumption that complex might function as a positive motivational drive of human behaviour. That is the reason why it is necessary to analyze, theoretically and in detail, the process of motivation, too. Different from the specialized psychological works, this essay is to be seen from broader, cultural point of view and it summarizes both the new approaches to the field of motivation and complex and the older thoughts of the great psychologists Car1 Gustav Jung, Alfred Adler, Sigmund Freud and many others. Despite the fact that neither in the domestic nor in the foreign literature we can find any monographies that would handle the problem of complex and the related phenomenons in detail, I tried to reveal the possible relation between complex and the motivational part of personality. Based on former studies of scholar1y literature I have conc1uded that it is necessary to view both mentioned terms in various context as without it the full...
