Spiritual ecology: association Zeměsouznění
Skoumalová, Tereza ; Spalová, Barbora (advisor) ; Divíšek, Tereza (referee)
This paper deals with spiritual aspects of environmental movements. For my research, I chose the Zeměsouznění association, which is currently working on a construction of the first Czech ecovillage on the land of the former village of Pěčkovice. Through qualitative research, I have tried to answer questions about motivation and interest in environmentalism and spirituality, how these two topics interact. At the same time, the work explains their connection with the project of exposing the ecovillage. The concept of spiritual ecology is not yet rooted in the Czech context, and therefore this work deals with how spiritual ecology manifests itself in the Czech Republic. I try to answer in what ecology can manifest itself spiritually, what value systems the members of the association play and what role the community plays in the association.

The theoretical part defines in more detail terms such as a child at risk...
A refugee situation on the stage
Drozdová, Monika ; Spalová, Barbora (advisor) ; Pergl, David (referee)
This bachelor's thesis is mainly concerned with exploring the narrative of Ukrainian migration in the environment of documentary theatre. For this purpose, the method of ethnographic observation and narrative analysis of a script of a documentary production created by refugees (both male and female) from Ukraine is chosen. Through documentary theatre, the real stories of refugees are communicated. Therefore, documentary theatre is here only a terrain in which social actors create a narrative. In her narrative analysis, the author draws on the work of Paul Ricoeur. The aim of this thesis is, among other things, to answer the question of how the theatrical environment and tools have influenced the form of the narrative and the way it is told. The resulting narrative is thus the collective product of a creative group. It carries the story of a refugee's journey from Ukraine to the Czech Republic and their life in the new world. The narrators are primarily the director and untrained actors from the ranks of the refugees, and listeners are the audience representing the spectators. The form of the narration is influenced by the methods of documentary theatre and stage theatre elements, which have partly influenced the way the narration is told.

Postsecular turn in contemporary feminist theory
Ort, Jakub ; Barša, Pavel (advisor) ; Kobová, Ĺubica (referee) ; Spalová, Barbora (referee)
(English) The text elaborates on the discussion of the so-called post-secular turn in contemporary feminist theory. In doing so, it follows primarily the texts and thought of Judith Butler, Saba Mahmood, Joan Wallach Scott, but also William Connolly and Talal Asad. The discussion is first set in the political context of the debates on Islam and women's rights that have gained momentum since September 11, 2001 and have divided the feminist movement not only in Europe. I also explain the theoretical context of the debate, which involves a revision of some aspects of the secularization thesis, but also a critical examination of the seemingly self-evident and universal assumptions associated with the concept of secularity. I first analyze the relationship between feminism and secularity through the theme of progress and secular time and then through the theme of emancipation and the autonomy of the subject. I show the role that these basic Enlightenment elements play in contemporary discussions of religion and human rights, and how the authors reveal the limits and risks of their use in the contemporary context. I show that the actual willingness to step outside these frames of thought varies from author to author. Finally, I confront the authors with a critique of the post-secular turn and. I also ask...
Crossing the line behind the stage: drugs in theatre
Rybová, Tereza ; Spalová, Barbora (advisor) ; Novotná, Hedvika (referee)
This thesis explores a specific discourse on cocaine non-use/use in the theatre environment, specifically among students and graduates of an arts college in the 20-30 age group. Thus, the research focuses on the use of psychotropic substances in a relatively privileged context. Through a phenomenological research design, an understanding of the lived experience of the actors is achieved. The data was collected through thirteen in-depth interviews. Respondents included non-users, occasional users, people in outpatient treatment and former drug distributors. The study explores how actors perceive experiences with particular drugs and how they define the boundaries of acceptability within psychotropic substance use. The thesis also focuses on what users consider essential during the act of use itself. Special attention is then given to economic relations, drug distribution and perceptions of illegality. The work also touches on the experience of abstinence and outpatient treatment. In addition to describing use in a specific theatrical setting through the eyes of the actors themselves, it is revealed how substance use is normalized in this group and how the actors (dis)define themselves from the socially supported discourse.
Poldi Kladno Through The Eyes Of Collective Memory
Peřinová, Eliška ; Spalová, Barbora (advisor) ; Grygar, Jakub (referee)
My thesis is focused on the former steelworks Poldi Kladno that as the biggest and the most important local company used to have a significant influence on the developing of the city even in a sense of its social identity. My research has two main research objectives - to discover in what sense is the Poldi Steelworks incorporated into the collective memory of Kladno and its citizens, to determine what would be the preferred new purpose of the current brownfield area and what are its real possibilities. From the theoretical point of view, I mostly rely on Maurice Halbwachs' theory of the collective memory. Methodologically, I'm conducting a qualitative research mostly based on in-depth interviews with respondents representing certain memory groups. This thesis is divided into four main sections. In the first chapter I introduce the reader to a local context and to the history of Poldi Kladno. Following is a Theoretical Chapter discussing the theory of collective memory and its application for the purposes of my research and also the topic of brownfields and the use of public space. In the Methodological Chapter I describe my chosen methodology into details and in the Research Chapter I sum up the findings of my research and answer my research questions.
