Vobořil, Šimon ; Spurný, Matěj (advisor) ; Rákosník, Jakub (referee)
This thesis deals with the "founding period" of military area Ralsko in North Bohemia. Its aim is to describe the behavioural patterns and strategies of actors involved in the founding of this military space. It shows both the intentions of the state and individual branches of state power, and capabilities and limits of displaced inhabitants and their representatives on the local level. The thesis is primarily based on research in local and national level archives. Research results are interpreted and put into context of the emerging people's democratic state establishment in Czechoslovakia, the building of a new post-war society and the role of the formerly German-speaking borderland.

Forced labour in the territory of occupied Norway during The Second World War - living and working conditions of Czechs as part of a total deployment in the areas of construction of Nordland- and Polar Line in 1942-1945
Králová, Gabriela ; Vojtěchovský, Ondřej (advisor) ; Spurný, Matěj (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the topic of Czech forced workers in Norway during the World War II. It follows the bachelor's thesis, which generally presented this almost unknown chapter of Czech-Norwegian history within the broader context of forced labor within the Norwegian territory. However, the work presented focuses on specific areas of deployment in the background of the Polar Line construction project in the north of the country, which had the highest priority in the Nazi plans. The thesis provides a deeper analysis of the collected sources, especially diaries, and on the basis of this charts the overall working and living conditions of Czech manpower in each construction section. At the same time, the work also takes into account the perspective of other interested parties, including Norwegian residents who have become an important part of Czechs' stay in Norway, as the research reveals. In addition, in this context, life in the camp and outside of it is discussed while the thesis compares the conditions in these two intertwining "worlds". The final part then focuses on the post-war situation and outlines how this experience affected the Czechs and how it is viewed within the framework of research on both Czech and Norwegian side.
Socialist legality and the Czechoslovak prosecutor's office in the 1970s
Lustig, Hubert ; Spurný, Matěj (advisor) ; Rákosník, Jakub (referee)
The subject of the thesis is to examine the understanding and function of the concept of socialist legality in the 1970s in the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic. The first part of the thesis focuses on the more general view of legal scientists and their construction of the concept of socialist legality and its contemporary functions. The second part conducts research on the General Prosecutor's Office of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic as a specific institution that was supposed to guard socialist legality, taking into account the conclusions of the first part and comparing the theoretical scientific debate and the practices of the specific state authority. For this institution, emphasis is also placed on the attitude towards activities that were perceived as non-conformist in terms of the political system of the time. In the context of the position of the supporters of these, from the point of view of the regime, non-conformist attitudes, it will therefore be a question of reviewing the limits of socialist legality and, on a more general level, its real function, which the ruling establishment pursued through its frequent accentuation.
Ukrainian Community in Prague and Central Bohemia after 1991
Trávníčková, Klára ; Kopeček Šustrová, Radka (advisor) ; Spurný, Matěj (referee)
The bachelor thesis focuses on the formation and organisation of community life, non-institutional activities, and identity of the Ukrainian minority in Prague and Central Bohemia from the 1990s (1991) to 2004. The start of the chosen time period is defined by the emergence of an independent Ukrainian state and the associated freedom to travel to other European countries for work due to the collapse of the Soviet Union. On its other end stands the Orange Revolution - the first major polarising political conflict of the Ukrainian Republic, which may also have impacted the community in the Czech Republic and its activities. The author aims to apply the methodology of transnational migration and diaspora studies to the selected source base (mainly from the production of associations of the Ukrainian national minority in the Czech Republic). The central part of the thesis entails a detailed analysis of two distinctive outputs of the compatriot associations - the magazine Porohy and the documentary film Easy Answer - and the labelling of its transnational and/or diasporic aspects. The thesis also provides insight into the journey taken by the Ukrainian national minority in the Czech Republic from the fall of state socialism to 2004.
Half a century of inventing the mountains (1960-2010)
Moravanský, Matěj ; Spurný, Matěj (advisor) ; Janáč, Jiří (referee)
The thesis aims to describe the process of "inventing "mountains between the 60s of the 20th century and zero years of the 21st century on the example of Giant Mountains. In this process, the relationship of socialist, state-socialist and post-socialist society towards nature was formed; it is possible to trace how social and natural ecosystems interconnected and how they were devastated or, on the contrary, protected and reinforced. The ambition of the thesis is to show not only efforts to protect nature but also to describe relationships between human and nonhuman agents. The first part discusses the plans, visions and concepts defining the organising of nature in the mountains. The second part introduced some stories regarding tourism development and nature protection. The last third part contains broader arguments: the application of the post-colonial perspective, the application of Jason W. Moore's concept of "capitalist ecology ", connecting nature's condition with the crisis of legitimacy of state socialism and the neoliberal turn in the 90s of the 20th century. The thesis focuses primarily on Giant Mountains as mountains which were founded as a national park, and due to that, many broader trends were established.
The Jitex factory and the "factory town" of Písek between 1949 and 1989
Peleška, Ondřej ; Spurný, Matěj (advisor) ; Bernášek, Bohumír (referee)
The presented work deals in general with the relationship of the textile factory Jitex to the South Bohemian town of Písek. The author will focus on the changes that were associated with the implementation, construction and operation of the company and thus fundamentally affected the city of Písek and the region itself. The dynamics of this change will be observed mainly at two levels, namely at the level of construction and at the level of social care for employees. The aim of this work will be to point out that in addition to production and its own operation, the industrial enterprise was also an important public policy figure and thus actively participated in the life of the city.
J. B. Souček - a Protestant Intellectual in the Heavy See of the Third Republic
Wernischová, Adelaida ; Spurný, Matěj (advisor) ; Hermann, Tomáš (referee)
This thesis deals with Josef Bohumil Souček, one of the leading protestant intellectuals in the postwar Czechoslovakia. Czech protestants were undoubtedly one of the groups, that had an influence on the public opinion, although it wasn't a huge group. If it is written about any great protestant figure from this era, it is usually about J. L. Hromádka and other important members of Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren remain in his shadow. This text should thus go about one of Hromádka's younger colleagues, who had in postwar Czechoslovakia also an important place. J. B. Souček was a person of great importance already during protectorate, when he led half- legal theologian courses. After World War II he worked as a professor on an evangelical theological faculty, in 60s he became it's vice dean and then also a dean. Besides his theological, exegetical and teaching activities he entered public space also via journalism. Between 1946 and 1949 he was an editor-in-chief of Christian revue, but he wrote articles also for other periodicals. The aim of the work is to make this figure a part of a wider intelectuall field between 1945 and 1948, find the things which had Souček's world of meanings in common with discourse of his period and which differed. On the basis of source research thesis seeks an answer...
What they talked about when they talked about the Expulsion. History, anti-communism and world interpretations in dissent polemics of 1970s on the topic of expulsion of Sudeten Germans
Illichmann, Michael Thomas ; Michela, Miroslav (advisor) ; Spurný, Matěj (referee)
Having expelled Sudeten Germans from the country after World War II, the issue enters the public attention mostly as a part of legacy of the communist rule in Czechoslovakia. Even though research on the topic was restricted in the country and heavily influenced by the communist party raison d'état, the issue remained in focus of many Czech and Slovak publicists, philosophers and others who were forced to flee the country for their anti-communist opinions. This thesis is focused on two exile magazines - Skutečnost (1949-1953) and Svědectví (1956-1992) and their debate on the controversial issue of the expulsion of Sudeten Germans. On the basis of discourse-historical analysis, the paper should demonstrate how the issue was contemplated in connection to political visions, politics, individual experiences, and individual narrative styles of Czech-German history. Especially questions of history, German post-war development, activities of Sudeten German organizations and communist dictatorship in connection to the issue of the expulsion are in focus to create a complicated yet richer picture of the post-war history of Czechoslovakia. Key words: Expulsion of Sudeten Germans from Czechoslovakia, Czech- German relations, Czechoslovakian exile, exile literature, dissent, Charter 77
The Outskirts of Prague towards the End of the 20th Century
Mikeš, Jan ; Spurný, Matěj (advisor) ; Roubal, Petr (referee)
This thesis concerns the beginning of the suburbanisation of the periphery of Prague in the last decade of the 20th century. Based on urbanist and architectural periodicals of the time, the thesis claims a strong existing support for a substantial development of the area among the specialists, which was in accord with the ruling expert consensus from the times before the Velvet Revolution of 1989. The real suburban growth, came, however, much slower than both the urban planners and construction companies expected and wished.
