The Image of Female Exotic Dancers in Czech Literature during the Twenties
Wagebaertová, Elizabeth ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
1 Abstract This bachelor thesis focuses on the intersection of gender and postcolonial analysis of exotic female dancers in selected works of Czech literature in the 1920s and 1930s. The characters themselves represent the intersection of different sorts of inequalities. They also combine many other topics such as dance, hierarchical power dynamics, gender and orientalist discourse. Therefore, I decided to use an interdisciplinary approach. The two introductory chapters provide the readers with some contextual information about real exotic dancers such as Josephine Baker, Mata Hari and Anita Berber in order to demonstrate the importance of this phenomenon. The third chapter summarizes the methodological approach used in this thesis and the fourth chapter presents the theoretical concepts that all my arguments are based on. The analysis of the main characters presented in the chosen works - specifically Divoška Jaja by Benjamin Klička, Gita Turaja by Anna Marie Tilschová and Rozkošnice by Jan Grmela - is offered in the following chapters. The paper concludes by confirming that despite some recurring motifs and similarities, the category of exotic dancers cannot be conceived as a homogeneous group.
Folk Culture in Gabriela Preissová's Collection of Short Stories Obrázky ze Slovácka
Belinová, Eliška ; Vaněk, Václav (advisor) ; Merhaut, Luboš (referee)
The presented thesis explores the representation of the traditional folk culture in Gabriela Preissová's three-part collection of short stories Obrázky ze Slovácka ("Short Stories from Moravian Slovakia", 1886, 1886 and 1889). The work is interpreted in the context of the Czech ethnographic movement, in which ethnologists, writers, painters, sculptors, photographers, composers as well as the general public were involved. The commentary on the stories deals gradually with material, spiritual and social culture, and folklore. It delineates the key phenomena (clothing, food, Christian and folk religiosity, social norms in young people's love, time, verbal and musical art), analyses the manner and degree of their integration into the literary text and their function in the story, text, and narration. Increased attention is paid to the confrontation between the village and town. The relation between folk culture and literature is conceived as interdiscursive, as a contact and interaction of two distinct sign systems.
