Cortijeros en La Alpujarra: From the Lifestyle migration to Thinking about a Positive Anthropology
Varhaník Wildová, Kateřina ; Halbich, Marek (advisor) ; Kapusta, Jan (referee) ; Szaló, Csaba (referee)
Lifestyle migrants from the affluent North move to the Mediterranean region intensively from the 80's. Lifestyle migration to Spain takes different forms: here we meet rich yacht owners in Marbella, retired people in the housing complexes in Almuñecar, or surfers in Tarifa. This work focused on people, who chose their new place in the region of La Alpujarra. They live in the remote houses called cortijos, which gave name to their inhabitants - cortijeros. Their lifestyles are the subject of this work, together with more general strategies practiced in lifestyle migration, the skills needed in such a move, and values they pursue. Ten years of research enabled to get together both, opinions and plans of the newcomers in the region, and their activities, stories, and imprints in the real world. I try to present different perspectives: the lens of lifestyle migration, counter-urbanization, material culture anthropology, history, positive psychology. At the end, I propose to think a positive anthropology that would focus on studying such practices that seemed to work towards understanding "the good life"; that work towards both individual well-being, and creating social structures considerate to humans and the environment.
Comparison of geographical curriculum of Spanish-speaking countries
Kořanová, Michaela
The present thesis compares geografical education in Argentina, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico and Spain. The main subject is the concept of the geografical education of level ISCED 2, presented in binding curriculum of the foremntioned countries. Content analysis of the curriculum aims to find out whether general geographical education is being unified or not. This thesis seeks to verify or falsify the hypothesis of bases of the elementary general geographical education being consistent in globalised world. This hypothesis is justified by the fact that educational potential of geography (certain basis of maternal discipline) is very similar across the world, as are main educational needs of today's society. Undoubtedly, the needs determine the goals, topics and content structure of geographical education. The structure of the thesis is congruent with the forementioned goals. The first part gives broader background of the subject. The second part is the research, its methodology and results. The concept of geographical education in curriculum was assessed through quantitaive and qualitative content analysis. Quantitative analysis focused on the frequency of key words (indicators of content unification) in educational goals and main topics. If the given indicator had been found to be present in at least...

Spanish regional parties as niche parties?
Henčlová, Věra ; Říchová, Blanka (advisor) ; Perottino, Michel (referee)
Regional parties are among the younger topics of political science research, their issue is not addressed by too many authors, and therefore we do not find many works that would contribute to this not very researched area. One of the authors, who included regional parties in her research, is Bonnie Meguid. She introduced the concept of niche parties, dealing with the success of "parties of gaps" compared to mainstream parties. In this work, the concept of niche parties is applied to Spanish regional parties to determine whether the concept is suitable for regional parties and whether we can speak of Spanish regional parties as niche parties. The analysis of the concept will be performed based on five established criteria, based on the work of Meguid and Wagner, who followed up on her concept and expanded it. Eight regional parties from six Spanish regions, selected based on several conditions, will be examined. The source basis of this work are party documents of selected regional parties, especially their election programs.
Francisco Franco's legacy in present Spain on the example of the Francisco Franco Foundation
Kraftová, Michaela Catalina ; Menclová, Barbora (advisor) ; Mejstřík, Martin (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the legacy of Francisco Franco in contemporary Spain on the example of the Francisco Franco National Foundation. The bachelor's thesis focuses mainly on the so-called Francisco Franco National Foundation, which is the most significant Spanish organization that not only defends this authoritarian leader, but also manages an archive of documents that Franco has collected during his life. The aim of the bachelor's thesis is a deeper review of the activities of the Francisco Franco National Foundation, which defends the legacy of Francisco Franco and his regime and does not agree that the francoist past should be understood as a negative issue in the history of Spain. The main research question posed by the bachelor's thesis is: "How does the Francisco Franco National Foundation recall Franco's legacy in contemporary Spain and what is its position in contemporary Spanish society?" The seminar work is divided into four chapters. The first chapter focuses on Francisco Franco, introduces him and presents the image of Spain, which was created under his leadership. The second chapter presents the Francisco Franco National Foundation, briefly describes its origin and summarizes its main goals. It also provides information about four activities that the FNFF has set out to...
Fertility tables and application of the method in the analysis of regional differentiation of fertility in Spain
Ukolova, Elizaveta ; Šídlo, Luděk (advisor) ; Šťastná, Anna (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to construct period fertility tables according to Human Fertility Database methodology and different kinds of fertility indices, which are possible to derive from fertility table's functions. The method is then used when analysing regional differences in fertility behaviour among Spanish regions in 1981, 1991, 1999 and 2011. The study begins with a general overview of fertility trends in Spain. Then, the data part follows. Next, the methodology is discussed and some table's indices, which Human Fertility Database does not provide, are constructed. Following chapters focus on application of the method to real data. It was found out, that with the help of period fertility tables one can calculate not only the age and parity adjusted total fertility rate and the table mean age at birth, but also various transition probabilities between parity states and as well as other measures. All this could be done due to the possibility of deeper disaggregation of the table population. The main results obtained by applying the method brought several interesting findings. Most importantly, differences across regions in Spain have been disappearing over the years, but they still persist in some form, as regions with a higher fertility rate were concentrated in the southern part of the country in...

Petr, Vojtěch ; Soukup, Jaromír (advisor) ; Tesař, Jakub (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with diplomatic relations between United states of America and European powers in the time period of war of Independence (1776-1783). In 1776 the continental congress declares independence on Great Britain. United states need support, therefore they turn to the most likely option, France. That is when the first negotiations of the United States of America begin. Negotiations go well and in time France joins United states in war against Britain. At this moment the focus of Brittish shifts to European shores and France. Situation gets worse for Britain when Spain decides to join the war against them. Spain's main focus is in Europe, Gibraltar. After succesful siege of Yorktown, Britain surrenders the war. Peace negotiations start and delegates from United States are forced to go behind their allies backs and negotiate with England. Thanks to Shelburne, Britain succeeds in gaining as much as possible, and settles on 3rd of November 1776 by signing the Paris treaty. Goal of this paper is to analyze and evaluate brittish position after the peace settlement and try to find the motives for Spanish behaviour and their actual role and importance in the war.

Furthermore, the work describes the development of the economic crisis in the world and in Spain and examines how foreigners located on Spanish territory were affected.

Democratic Spain's fight against gender-baseddiscrimination
Bílková, Kateřina ; Menclová, Barbora (advisor) ; Lukešová, Anna (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with gender policies adopted in Spain by individual governments in years 1982 - 2018. It analyzes election programs, legislative changes, the emergence of specialized institutions and in some cases the response of Spanish society to these measures. The aim of this work is to record the changes that have occurred in gender policy in Spain after the country's transition to democracy, and especially after the Socialist Party took over the government in 1982 and to find out whether the attitudes of the two main Spanish political parties on this issue differ. The work is divided into four main parts according to individual government periods. These four chapters examine whether the attitude of individual Spanish governments to the issue of women's rights has changed and what each government has emphasized. At the same time, it examines where, on the contrary, it has remained only with populist pre-election promises without the real fulfillment of the set goals. Last but not least, the work also evaluates other societal events and factors which, together with the policies of individual governments, have influenced the position of women in Spanish society on the path to achieving gender equality.
