Portrait of columnist Alena Wagnerová
Máchová, Natalie ; Malý, Radek (advisor) ; Čeňková, Jana (referee)
This diploma thesis sums up the life and work of Alena Wagnerová with an emphasis on topics that she has reflected in her books and articles. Alena Wagnerová first started to publish her work in the magazine Plamen in the nineteen-sixties. By then, her interest in social problems and in stories of people marginalized by the society has already started to show. After her immigration to Germany, she has fully begun to focus on issues related to the equality between women and men and in 1974 she published her book Žena za socialismu: Československo 1945-1974 a reflexe vývoje před rokem 1989 a po něm. Later on she has also published for example a monograph about the baroness Sidionie Nádherná or Czech journalist Milena Jesenská and the Franz Kafka family. This thesis also marginally covers the oral history as a method, since Alena Wagnerová presents a significant representation of this type of methodology. Among her most important publications based on the oral history belong for instance Odsunuté vzpomínky and Neodsunuté vzpomínky, in which Wagnerová covers the post-war Czech-German relations in Sudeten. Even though Wagnerová mainly focuses on the non-fiction literature, she also writes fiction, which is covered in the diploma theses as well.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" Changes in the Character of the Princess in the Films of Walt Disney and his Studio.
The thesis focuses to the evolution of female characters in Disney cartoons. It investigates whether the characters change in any way and if so, what changes happen. The work is chronologically arranged and divided to several time periods. Each chapter contains particular fairytales which are mutually compared. Every fairytale is also set in the historical context. We will also explore whether the films are influenced by the period context. The aim of the thesis is to find out what the chosen fairytales have in common and how the main female characters evolve. This is described in 4 different eras, which are following: from the classical period within years 1937-1967 we have Snow White and Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. In years 1967-1988 there were no films with a princess as a main heroine and the studio dealt with a crisis. In the 1980s the company management changed and Michael Eisner became the studio managing director. Within years 1989-2005 many successful films were created in the studio. We chose The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas. Robert Iger has been the studio managing director since 2005. We chose Tangled, Frozen and Moana from the last period, which hasn't finished yet. Eventually we mention the Disney studio impact on society. We study its marketing abilities and the use of advertisement. The conclusion shows how the heroines changed from girls who needed to be saved by the Prince Charming over girls who took their fate in their own hands to princesses equal to men.
