Ritualization of death and dying in the Revolution of 1848: the cult of the dead
Randák, Jan ; Hlavačka, Milan (advisor) ; Řepa, Milan (referee)
non-traditional view of the subject of the revolutionary year of 1848. While a vast majority of the existing research has been focused on the course of the revolution, particular political camps and leaders of the contemporary movement, I have put emphasis on a phenomenon seemingly concealed and disregarded. My attention was aimed on the dead, the victims of the events of this hectic period. Death as such has indeed been a traditional interest of historians, nevertheless, reception and reflection thereof in a political or rather a revolutionary context is a fairly less regarded subject. Therefore, I have laid out an indeed concrete topíc in my thesis - ritualisation of death and dying during the revolution of 1848. A simple question is apparent: why study this subject of the dead and victims in the Czech context when no major fights occured here and thus the number of fatalities was not extreme? After reading my thesis the answer com es up as obviously as the question does: despite a relatively low body count of the Pentecost events in June 1848, a cult of the dead and victims of the revolution 1848 is present in the course of the few restless months. The cult of the dead was a sophisticated means of using the victims to promote particular interests of both the reformatory and revolutionary camp as well as...

Struggle with the Liquid Muse: Law persecuting serving alcohol drinks and conditions his origin.
Balogh, Branislav ; Randák, Jan (advisor) ; Rychlík, Jan (referee)
The Youth Protection Act was the first standard to define the age at which a young person could consume alcoholic beverages. I try to shine a light on the reasons behind why the law was specifically created in 1922.Following its genealogy and being inspired by Foucault, I go through the numerous norms which society guarded itself against serious alcohol use. Subsequently, I follow the process of approving the law itself, from its proposal to its approval in the Senate. I pay close attention to its prohibition in Slovakia, the reason for which was the image of Slovakia as a country loaded with governmentally allocated alcohol. I notice the logic behind the violations of the law which legitimized such actions. Since we speak of offences mostly perpetrated by the youth, I aim to not only to show the ease by which alcohol could have been purchased but also the overall vision of appropriate alcohol consumption by the youth. Consequently, I point to the anchoring of the border between the 16th and the 18th year, when it is permissible to consume alcohol - as the law has stipulated. I also paid close attention to the opinion of several clubs of physical education on alcohol. I mentioned these as one of the many ways of combating alcoholism. Since I was fascinated to find out whether there was a...

The thesis touches upon forced collectivization, the disappearance of human dwellings, landscape changes, the state authorities that implemented borderlands policy, population groups moved to this area, the return migration from the borderlands, the settlement efforts in the 1950s, etc. Another part of the thesis expounds post-war circumstances in the Hrubý Jeseník area, i.e. in the districts of Bruntál, Rýmařov, Jeseník, and Šumperk. Since after the war, the failure of the settlement policy has had immediate and long-term consequences for this region, even more so than in other border areas. The chapter about Hrubý Jeseník presents the main reasons of the region's sparse population and profound transformations. Changes in the population and life of a foothill village are illustrated with an example of Dolní...
