Social Body : the post internet feminist art in the context of Xenofeminism Manifesto and Michael Foucault’s “History of Sexuality”
Jarosz, Anna ; JANOŠČÍK, Václav (advisor) ; Stejskalová, Tereza (referee)
I would like to start my analysis with the historical specificity of the body, particularly the body as a direct target and formed by historically variable regimes. I want to try to look at the problem of how to conceive of the body without reducing its materiality to a fixed biological essence. Which is, in my opinion, strongly connected to the issue of social control through bodies, sexuality and gender, pointed out in the Xenofeminism Manifesto, which is one of the main sources for my thesis paper.

The theme refers to contemporary world production of queer artists. The aim of this work is to illustrate, on the example of personal theory, a radical approach in the field of culture, to inform about new approaches in the field of art and to fluidly combine certain belongings. Content: theory, experience, interviews, artists, development, future Headline Chapters: Ghost in the 21st Century, Wickedness, Brand Queers, Great Army of People, New Base (Emancipation) Main artists: Jana Kratochvílová, Arca x Jessie Kanda, Anne Imhof, Tino Seghal, Bjork, Ryan Trecartin, Anohni Literature: Phillip Vannini - theory unrepresentative introduction: The theme of the thesis is based on personal experience. In 2016, I intuitively felt that artists working with thematic themes would start to harden in their approach and make the creation more radical. So I wrote in the bathroom on the mirror the statement FUCK HARDER IN 2K17. It turned out I was right, and indeed 2017 was a sign of radicalism in more directions - from visual art, video clips, music, pop culture to fashion photography. In my work I would like to concentrate on this subject and selected artist from all over the world. Understand your perception of this phenomenon over the current work of selected artists, and on the basis of this you can easily indicate the further development of these artists. The selection of artists will be key to the work and will be intuitive, complemented by interviews with artists. Intuition at work will be the next key to link everything you can imagine.
"Písař Bartleby" v současné kultuře
Stejskalová, Tereza ; Roraback, Erik Sherman (advisor) ; Robbins, David Lee (referee) ; Arbeit, Marcel (referee)
This dissertation is based on the observation that Herman Melville's "Bartleby, the Scrivener" has become a popular reference in contemporary culture. Not only in the field of literary scholarship but also in the realm of art, political theory and philosophy, it is employed as an example of authentic resistance to power, a counter-intuitive politics that finds its strength in withdrawal, inaction, and inscrutability. The thesis examines the reasons and motives that drive literary scholars, artists and philosophers to read, interpret and use the story in such a way. It does so by analyzing the nature of and reoccurring patterns in Bartleby Industry, the enormous bulk of academic scholarship devoted to the story. It observes how the story is made use of outside of literary scholarship by disciplines, such as art and philosophy, that are not primarily concerned with the literary complexity of the story but use it to work on their own problems of politics and ethics. It pays special attention to its popularity among influential Postmarxist philosophers, namely Slavoj Žižek, Giorgio Agamben and Gilles Deleuze. As the presence of "Bartleby" in the realm of philosophy has to do with a particular function literature performs in that field, in these chapters "Bartleby" becomes more of a guiding thread in order to...
The Issue of Food in the Work of Kawakami Hiromi
Stejskalová, Tereza ; Tirala, Martin (advisor) ; Weber, Michael (referee)
This master's thesis focuses on the issue of food in some selected works by Kawakami Hiromi (born 1958). At first, it attempts to express some characteristic features of modern Japanese cuisine in general, which are closely connected to the creation of the concept of national identity, and to give a summary of works of modern and contemporary Japanese literature in which the topic of food is present. Next, it describes the work of Kawakami Hiromi. After introducing the author's main masterpieces and its typical features, it comes to the interpretation of the selected texts which were published within 1998 and 2010. It interprets the works mainly from the thematic point of view and it attempts to determine connections in which the issue and motifs of food appear. It also studies what role is played by food, eating or cooking in Kawakami's work. In selected translated passages it makes an effort to give evidence of certain elements in her work such as: food as means of befriendment, motif of a skilled male cook, inability to cook, which leads to a conflict in a relationship etc. It compares works in which often appear lonely women protagonists longing for love and in which the real world meets the supernatural or the traditional elements meet the modern ones. In order to point out other connections...

In the theoretical part, the conception of literary space is defined from the perspective of literary topology. The definition of this concept is based on literary studies on the topic of literary topology, mainly on the essays Místa s Tajemstvím ('Places...

Forming of space in selected pieces of literature for children and youth
Stejskalová, Tereza ; Brožová, Věra (advisor) ; Hník, Ondřej (referee)
This bachelor's thesis concentrates on building and projection of literary space in literature for children and youth. This work has literary interpretive character and the interpretation is based on theoretical works devoted to literary space. This thesis is divided in two parts. First part covers the theoretical conception of literary space and is focused mainly on the area of literary topology. Second part is focused on interpretation of individual pieces (The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, Through a Glass, Darkly by Jostein Gaarder, Prince and the Lark by Valja Stýblová). The choice of interpreted books is based on the literary space. Pieces that form the representative sample of possible spaces were chosen. The selection is also limited by the topic the books are addressing. Topics are connected by introducing serious issues of human life to children. This work is devoted to the question, how are these topics projected to literary space and how does the space support them. This work concludes that represented topics are significantly projected in the literary space in these pieces and that the literary space supports their importance, or it alleviates their eeriness.
Journey towards otherness. Nadine Gordimer's The Pickup
Stejskalová, Tereza ; Nováková, Soňa (advisor) ; Beran, Zdeněk (referee)
The central metaphor that serves as a guide through the whole thesis is the notion of journey in its various forms. Before we start to analyze the novel itself it seems necessary to examine more closely what journey is and how it may be defined in the context of the novel. Be it journey as displacement or voluntary relocation, journeys are what defines character's existence that seems always somehow in flux, on the move or ready to move. The characters' world then becomes a mirror image of the world we are living in. While it is true that migration and movement has always been a part of our civilization, in the contemporary context of globalization, the world is, indisputably, in a constant state of flux. Our environment is constantly changing due to the great number of migrating people, exiles or refugees. Territorial security slowly vanishes from our milieu. And so is the novel a realm where, as we shall see where contingency becomes the law not only present in the movement and its circumstances, but in people themselves. The characters' trajectories produce a shape that is by no means seen as a mere background, static pattern that can be classified, it comes to dominate the novel and emerges as a space that is difficult to trace for it seems impossible to define. It forever changes, lacks linearity. To...
