"My Sudetenland is all around here, my darling": The representation of Sudetenland area in contemporary Czech popular music and other popular culture media
BRTNÍK, Robert
The Bachelor's thesis focuses on the depiction of the border area in contemporary Czech music production. Concepts from the field of remembrance and aesthetics of nature are chosen here as key points for later analysis. The work also focuses on the history of the Sudetenland and Czech-German relations, which influenced the landscape character and perception of this area. In addition, we work here with the geography of the borderlands, but also with the reflection of socio-pathological phenomena often attributed to the Sudetenland. For a more comprehensive understanding of the artistic depiction of the given topic, a comparison of other forms of art (film, comics, literature, and visual media) is also processed here, which is the basis for later musical analysis and at the same time a form of summary or memento of the depiction of the Sudetenland, which for many years was subject to contemporary propaganda. The goal of the work is not only to find out what the musical reflection of the history and present of the Sudetenland looks like through the prism of nature, remembrance, etc., but to ascertain the degree of fetishization of the "dark" sides of the borderland and to come to some sort of compromise between the already established "mysterious" form of this depiction and the reflection of the current state of the Sudetenland, which is often forgotten, even though it is a very large part of our territory.

Situation of German population in Teplice-Šanov Regarding the Transfer of Germans from the Czechoslovak Republic.
Maříková, Jana ; Míšková, Alena (advisor) ; Nováková, Tamara (referee)
This thesis uses archive materials to map the post-war situation of German population in a Czechoslovak district of Teplice-Šanov. Before the war, the German population made for more than 70% of the total population of this borderline area. In 1947 it was only about 7%. In the first months after the end of the war, 27,000 - 34,000 of German nationals were banished from the area. In the following transfers 29,487 were forced out between February and August of 1946. More Germans continued to leave the country after the regular transfers in additional transports up until 1950. Only some specific groups of German speaking inhabitants were permitted to stay in Czechoslovakia - antifascists, Austrians, German experts, people living in mixed marriages, some of the German clergy, and those who were pardoned. In Teplice-Šanov it was a considerably large group of specialists (especially in the field of mining) who remained. The issue of repopulating the regions affected by the expulsion of Germans is also addressed. Settlers from inland, other borderline areas, Slovakia and from abroad came to the Teplice-Šanov district. The total number of newcomers in May 1947 was 47,402. This thesis uses an actual example of one district to illustrate the complexity of post-war situation. The analysis of the stance of...

Andršová, Justýna ; Županič, Jan (advisor) ; Hogenová, Anna (referee)
This bachelor's thesis focuses on select aspects of the process of Czechization of České Budějovice between the mid-19th century until the early 20th century. The aspects in question are mainly the following: economic development, evolution of the population structure, and political competition on a municipal level. In regard to the evolution of the population structure, this thesis primarily focuses on the ambivalence of national identity. As concerns the economic shift, the focal point is the contemporary development of business life in the city and the competition between the Czech and German parties involved. When it comes to political competition, it follows the inner workings of municipal administration and elections, which played a major part the particular way that the national emancipation of the Czech population of České Budějovice developed, not only on a political level. KEYWORDS České Budějovice, Czechization, Czech-German relations, municipal self-government, population structure
