Sex Education as a part of Socialization from Young People View
Coufalová, Linda ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (advisor) ; Matoušek, Petr (referee)
Bachelor thesis is focused on sex education which it considers a key part of socialization process. For quantitative research of sex education is used a notion "resources of sex education" meaning the way the related information is passed. This information is operationalised as "topics of sex education". Referring to Foucault, this thesis takes whole- society discourse as the basic resource of sex education. Thesis is concerning attitudes of young people aged 15-20 for in this age first long relationships are created. Hence the sex education is getting attention from young people. Young people's attitudes and preferences were measured quantitatively using online questionnaire. The structure of the respondents does not copy structure of the population thus the finding cannot be generalized. Bachelor thesis aims to answer this research question: Is internet the main resource of sex education for young people? To answer this question, there are eleven hypotheses in this thesis, which aim at better understanding of related preferences and habits of respondents. From the data is visible that the internet is main resource of sex education but friends are equally important.
The Prestige of Teachers Occupation
Fiala, Jan ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (advisor) ; Gorčíková, Magdaléna (referee)
Thesis deals with the prestige of the teaching profession. Its main goal is to try to find out how teachers themselves perceive the prestige connected with their profession. The research consisted of in-depth semi-structured interviews with teachers on this issue and their subsequent analysis. It turned out that although teachers occupy on occupational prestige scales regularly top positions within the interviews they spoke about very low prestige connected with their occupation. The thesis also presents and describes in detail the factors based on analysis of interviews which emerged in connection with low self-esteem of teachers in terms of prestige as a major. This mainly concerns the relatively low income and the related lower standard of living, which forces teachers to have a secondary income. Furthermore, the analysis showed that teachers low self-esteem is affected by alleged lower difficulty of faculties of education, difficult assesment of work results and underastimated difficulty of work from the publics point of view. Not forgetting the little influence of educational unions and the lack of professional organizations that defend the interests of teachers. Last but not least, the low self-esteem of teachers is also affected by publics belief that teaching is not professional or highly...
Homebirth as Actor-Network
Genttnerová, Kristýna ; Grygar, Jakub (advisor) ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (referee)
Homebirth as Actor-Network: Multiple realities The topic of this medical anthropology thesis is a description of homebirth seen through the eyes of Actor-Network Theory. The focus of this work is thus not on the professional concept of homebirth as a biological process or soon-to-be-mothers experience and take on homebirth. Focus is on homebirth in itself, how it is enacted in practice. After the presentation of two points of view on medicine (disease and illness), an introduction into the basic principles and innovations of ANT (including anthropology of symmetry) and works of people, who build their ideas on it (Mol - multiplicity, De Laet - fluidity, Law), the thesis shifts its focus to the description of the whole actor- network, which enacts homebirth via interaction between the actors in practice. These practices are abstracted from the interviews with mothers, a dula and a paediatrician. The description includes people and objects, because according to ANT, they have the same amount of social agency. Homebirth is then enacted by the objects needed for homebirth - tools to make birth easier and to support its process, by people who partake, venues it takes place and the birthing positions it brings. Another part of the actor-network can be found before the homebirth happens - the hunt for information...
Moral boundaries between Christians and atheists
Koloušková, Barbora ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (advisor) ; Grygar, Jakub (referee)
This paper deals with an idea of boundaries that christians and non-christians construct and the way these boundaries emerge and reproduce. Based on the analysis of twelve in-depth interviews, I show that the concept of moral boundaries is relevant for the relationship between christians and non-christians. Although many emphasize tolerance and understanding, they define themselves as opposed to each other in many ways. Christians consider God's commandments to be the source of morality, non-christians think it is rooted in people themselves. Christians consider relationship with God, love and good christian life to be the highest values and they think non-christians prefer money, health and family. Those admit these values, but they emphasize that being christian does not automatically mean being a good person. As a respond to today's situation, I analyze creating social distance and symbolic boundaries against ethnic and national minorities. Powered by TCPDF (

The thesis focuses on the analysis of a dispute regarding home birth and discourses associated with it. The thesis focuses on the analysis of a dispute regarding home birth and discourses associated with it. The thesis focuses on the analysis of a dispute regarding home birth and discourses associated with it. Choice of location and proces sof giving birth in czech environment remains very limited and domestic deliveries are subject of controversy among professional medical community and state institutions on the one hand and midwives, civil movements and comitted mothers on the other hand. Theme divides laical and expert public. It's established through discourses, reflect the views and opinions of the two quarreled groups - supporters of medically controlled childbirth and supporters of natural birth. In the context of media reporting can be identified two main streams of discursive formations, scattering of concepts, thematic choices, objels and modalities of coming to the statement - medical discourse and natural discourse. The controversy both discourses in the Czech media escalated with court case with midwife Ivana Königsmarková, who in 2009 assisted at home birth that ended tragically - serious damage and subsequent death of a child. Just on the case of Ivana Königsmarková and its...
How active seniors cope with stereotyping
Pokorná, Kateřina ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (advisor) ; Tuček, Milan (referee)
The diploma thesis "How active seniors cope with stereotyping" presents the view of active senior citizens on the issue of ageism in Czech society. Research based on analysis of semi-structured interviews shows that active seniors do not consider inequality as a major problem, mainly because of their life optimism, which helps them overcome the stereotypes. Another important strategy the respondents - active seniors - apply is building/keeping a distance between themselves and the rest of the senior population, upon which they look the same way as the rest of Czech society does. The idea that they themselves do not match the prejudices, but the other seniors do, reinforces the stereotypical view of older people and also presents the active seniors as exceptional. The veneration of an active lifestyle in old age does not seem to be a direct effect of active aging trend, as all respondents had been very active throughout their whole life. Although active seniors present themselves as open to society, they prefer to spend their free time with other (active) people of their own age. Despite the rhetoric of assertiveness they are often passive, when confronted with discrimination, and try to sidestep an anticipated unpleasant situation.
Integrating History of Sociology into History of Science: Language Analysis as a Tool for History of Sociology
Patáková, Markéta ; Maršálek, Jan (advisor) ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (referee)
This thesis focuses on methodological possibilities of language as a basis for history of sociology. Current professional history of sociology takes predominantly the form of institutional studies characterized by an attention to social context of knowledge production. Language orientation provides an unutilized opportunity for intellectual history - a supposedly stale alternative of institutional tradition. Development of language-based history creates a methodological position close to approaches common in history of natural sciences. Critical analysis of metaphor studies in sociology serves as an example of risks and challenges of language focus which assists us with articulation of our own methodological position. Following studies of Ladislav Kvasz, historian of natural sciences, the thesis offers methodological apparatus adapted to sociology. Key feature of the presented tool is a capability to distinguish between three levels of language of sociological theory: data, models and theory. These levels differ in functions which they ascribe to corresponding language elements and rising language powers (to constitute new objects and to integrate the ones positioned below). Application of our method is illustrated by two examples. Cursory excursion into history of mathematics in sociology...

Záleská, Eva ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (advisor) ; Jeřábek, Hynek (referee)
The thesis deals with the changes related to shift from university to first serious job. We have tried to find out how do graduates and university students reflects possible changes related to this situation with focus on changes in consumption behaviour. The theoretical part is based on theories of practices with their representatives Pierre Bourdieu and Alan Warde. Also approach of Mary Douglas and several classical approaches to consumption (e.g. Thorstein Veblen's conspicuous consumption etc.) and approach to reference groups theories are presented as a theoretical background of the thesis. The research is based on qualitative interviews with graduates or university students who have started to join their first serious job. All interviews have been conducted with Prague residents who work in commercial companies in Prague, their position have been often related to marketing area. The main finding is that the respondents perceive their social status as higher than before, they have started to follow practices related to their work team which have manifested also in the change of some of their consumption patterns (connected with e.g. eating, travelling, car purchasing and using). They have also different level of need to be integrated of the work team. This need is based on the age composition...
Regional Identity and Symbolic Borders between "Us and Them": Case Study Hrdlovka's Demolition Effect on Osek
Frantová, Ivana ; Šanderová, Jadwiga (advisor) ; Samec, Tomáš (referee)
Regional Identity and Symbolic Borders between "Us and Them": Case Study Hrdlovka's Demolition Effect on Osek Abstract The bachelors work focuses on the creation of regional identity and symbolic borders between "Us and Them" on the Osek city example, where 2000 people from the Hrdlovka village moved in. Hrdlovka was demolished for brown coal mining purposes. The approach of my work was to find out what factors are influencing the creation of an identity attached to a specific location based on which a symbolic "Us and them" border between the initial Osek and initial Hrdlovka inhabitants was formed. Further on I examined, if there is a relationship between regional identity and symbolic borders. The results of the quantitative research, which is mainly based on in-depth interviews, indicate that regional identity is being formed depending on the time spent in one place, city of origin, age of respondent, life and environmental conditions, collective awareness and relationship which identify ourselves in the given location. Symbolic borders arise only in situations where the location-attached regional identity is threatened. Symbolic borders of the inhabitants of both Hrdlovka and Osek raised from differences in their regional identity which means there is a direct relationship between them. The whole work...
