Photographer Marie Tomanová and American Youth
Kopelentová, Tereza ; Turek, Pavel (advisor) ; Géla, František (referee)
This master's thesis aims to explore the body of documentary and photographic work by Marie Tomanová, a prominent Czech photographer who has spent more than a decade living in the United States. Tomanová is now an established part of a long-standing tradition of American documentary photographers who seek to capture the emerging young generations and their culture. In its theoretical part, the thesis will provide a brief history of youth culture in American society from the beginning of the 20th century all the way to the early aughts. It will explore the context in which photographers have depicted youth culture since the mid-20th century, with a particular focus on Marie Tomanová's work as one of the most prominent contemporary representatives of the genre. The practical part consists of a visual social semiotic analysis of selected photographs by various photographers introduced earlier in the thesis. The analysis will attempt to decode the fundamental values encoded within these photographs of young Americans, compare any changes in these values over time and also focus on differences in approach among the individual authors. Finally, this thesis will attempt to place Tomanová's body of work within the lineage of American documentary photographers. The results of these analyses will be...
Critic or creator? Merging the roles of cultural journalist and audiovisual content creator
Šafová, Julie ; Turek, Pavel (advisor) ; Čeňková, Jana (referee)
Bachelor's thesis Critic or creator? Merging the roles of cultural journalist and audiovisual content creator focuses on the specific aspect in which the sphere of cultural journalism is penetrated by people who are themselves engaged in the process of creating cultural contents. The paper first defines cultural journalism and criticism as general genres with linguistic specifics, then focuses on the concept of criticism as an institution and describes the crisis of the critical genre and its form in the digitalized environment of today. Other chapters deal with the precarization of work, a phenomenon during which permanent jobs are replaced by precarious work dependent on part-time and one-off activities, which is central to the Czech and global cultural journalism and its understanding. The thesis defines how the precarization of work affects the cultural industry and media production. The aim of the thesis is to examine the relationship between the roles of cultural publicist and audiovisual content creator, how this relationship is reflected in the activities of those who occupy both roles, and how these roles complement each other. The practical output of the thesis is a series of eight interviews with male and female respondents who, in addition to audiovisual criticism, are also involved in...
Noise against the binary - How women, queer, and non-binary people use electronic music, and synthesizers as the emancipation tool
Pátá, Julia ; Hroch, Miloš (advisor) ; Turek, Pavel (referee)
This practical bachelor's thesis maps the connections between gender and the production of electronic experimental music, with an emphasis on the element of synthesizers, in domestic conditions. The thesis documents whether and how electronic experimental music and synthesizers can provide a more inclusive and accessible musical infrastructure in the Czech Republic. It also builds on an area that has been neglected by historical/academic scholarship and the media for several decades, and which has received more attention in recent years, especially in the context of the amplification of voices from gendered communities. This is evidenced, for example, in the music documentary Sisters with Transistors (2020) by filmmaker Lisa Rovner, which documents the pioneers of experimental electronic music, whose contributions largely underpin what we now perceive as electronic music. The practical output of the work is a series of seven interviews with figures from the Prague and Brno electronic scene who incorporate synthesizers in their work, divided into several categories according to the role they play within the electronic scene. The interviews are in the form of a zine and the individual texts are accompanied by analogue photographs. They project different approaches to the intersection of gender and...
Dance floor as a safe space: interviews with women of Czech club culture
Láska, Timon ; Hroch, Miloš (advisor) ; Turek, Pavel (referee)
The practical bachelor's thesis Dance Floor as a Safe Space: interviews with women in Czech club culture was written as a response to the ongoing debate about safe spaces in club cultures, in which the part of society most affected by the discussion, i.e. women, the queer community and other marginalized groups, rarely get a place to express themselves. The issue is more serious in the context of club cultures and the predominantly specific rave culture because these cultures present themselves as egalitarian cultures without any marginalization based on gender, sex, race, nation, or religion. In addition to gender diversity, the thesis also deals with the issue of safe spaces within club cultures; these two issues are closely and inextricably linked. The theoretical part of the thesis introduces the concepts that relate to the topic from a historical and contemporary context, it deals with the theory of the genre of the journalistic interview, gender and gender stereotyping, safe space, and last but not least club cultures and the rave culture under study. It will also delineate the functioning and differences between the scenes of both cities, Prague and Brno. The practical part of the thesis will present a series of ten interviews with women and non-binary people from the club cultures of Prague...

Fourth subchapter refers to stereotypes and myths about old age, ageing and seniors. Above that, the thesis also includes image analysis of photo content. Its main object are photographs with people over 50 years old. These images has are analyzed using several variables that we have created from Czech and foreign research. The data is mainly draw from the Czech study from 2007, whose results we compare with ours. The research was aiming to answer the research questions, make an image of seniors, who appear in "senior magazines", and to...
Development of dry grassland communities during recultivation of limestone quarries
Turek, Pavel ; Münzbergová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Kladivová, Anna (referee)
My bachelor thesis is about methods of reclamation and rejuvenation of limestone limestone quarry, that are a very interesting location from an ecological point of view. I briefly pointed out the positives and negatives of individual used methods, such as reclamation, that aims to restore the vegetation cover quickly, but is very expensive and species that appear on the reclaimed locations aren't nearly as rare, as those on locations that are left to natural succession. Natural succession has the best results if the location is in close vicinity to a source of seeds. Reclaimed areas show a significantly lower biodiversity and hinder protection of rare and key species as opposed to natural succession. To avoid this, in some cases we can use smaller interventions instead of reclamation, and these interventions should be done as delicately as possible with the principles of natural succession in mind. I've noted important factors such as the microclimate, the soil conditions and the source of seeds, that can affect the succession and the legislation and waste law, that influence to a certain degree how the rejuvenation of disrupted sites proceeds.

The work analyzes what their function in media is, what their common day looks like, who they are speaking with and then what their daily decisions about photographs are.

I compare their information with the information of foreign media books. The object of the thesis is to show on six chosen important Czech daily and weekly papers how the photo editors work, what is their leading role and whether they are important for the organization or not.
