Morell, Ian ; Černý, Karel (advisor) ; Novák, Arnošt (referee)
for-Understanding Plastic: Plastic and its Socio-historical Context Ian Francisco Morell This article explores the proliferation of plastic in the modern era, especially as it relates to nature. Using the text The Ecological Rift along with Capitalism in the Web of Life, this article first attempts to understand the nature-society dialectic and how capital relations have produced changes in natural systems and vice versa. Then, using the texts Land of Desire along with American Plastic: A Cultural History, this article contextualizes the productive and cultural relations which underpin plastic production and its eventual fate as pollution.

Identity and Euroscepticism at odds with EU institutions and Grand Strategy. Abstract: During a very volatile time in which uncertainty ranks high, the EU faces a multitude of challenges in pursuit of maintaining its hold with the state members, promote and overlook the continuity of its interests both continentally and on an international level, all while overlooking the constituent members' economic, diplomatic and political sectors. Under such pretense, many questions arise on how the EU handles all of this, for that specifically I composed this thesis that combines different topics in different fields to have a better understanding at where the EU is heading as an international organization. Identity is a driving factor in identifying and self-categorizing with the EU for all of elites, citizens and even corporate bodies. Another phenomenon that can be brought up when speaking of identity is Euroscepticism where identity can have unbalanced grounds after a streak of crises that the EU has gone through, and last Grand Strategy as an academic field is most interesting to understand the EU's strategic initiatives. All of these can be looked at through the EU's institutional framework that provides a compelling basis to understand the EU as a whole. Keywords: EU - Union - Euroscepticism - Identity - Grand...

Ivonina, Natalia ; Marková, Alena (advisor) ; Černý, Karel (referee)
The paper is dealing with the changes in the place of Stalinism in the historical policy of the Russian government after the year 2012, that have taken place due to the mass protests, declining state's legitimacy, and emerging need to create a new official unifying narrative. The challenges for historical policy and the ways it reacted to them are examined by analyzing speeches of the politicians and influencers supported by the state, activities of state organizations, and evolution of memorial legislation, as well as the influence of the historical policy on the schoolbooks. The conclusion is made, that two main challenges with including Stalinism in the official narrative were the problematic role of Stalin in the Second world war and its relation to the Soviet state and Soviet ideology. Change in the official reaction to these challenges was connected to the changes in the place of Stalinism in official rhetoric. Key words: historical policy, Stalinism, Putin's Russia
Islam in the service of politics, politics in the service of Islam
Matysová, Barbora ; Černý, Karel (advisor) ; Suša, Oleg (referee)
The objective is a theoretical analysis of mixing politics and religion in Islam, a description of the functions of political and religious institution in Islamic society, and comparison with the Occidental concept of the relationship of religion (extension of the Church) and politics. The reality is mediated by the media quite often through the confusion of terms (such as Islam and Islamism, Islamist or Muslim and Arab and Islamic world) misinterpreted. Very easy it is based on generalization and inappropriate metaphor to create an unfavorable opinion about the culture and the people with whom the author did not even have personal experience. In this thesis should be separated by "West" view of the Islamic religion and politics and perceptions of the Islamic religion and politics through the lens. Part of the thesis is devoted to comparing the performance and Iran and Turkey in relation to the topic, i.e. how these two countries have religion and politics and what is between these two components of the relationship. The issue is the compatibility of Islam with democratic type of society and intercultural dialogue between the "Occident" and Islam.
