History of the National Theatre Ballet in the years 1930-1951
Routková, Kateřina ; Bendová, Eva (referee)
The rigorous thesis deals with the influence of the 20th century political events on the National Theatre Ballet. The researched period is set out by the years 1930-1951. The work follows the pre-war situation of the two ballet leaders Jelizaveta Nikolská and Josef Joe Jenčík, the rise and fall of German nationalism, the dance-related career of Emanuel Famíra, post-war Czechoslovakia, the rise of communism, the dark fifties and the work of Saša Machov. The research of ballet specifics is dealt with in the circumstances of the time. The character of the time is further illustrated by the destinies of the group's leaders (or its soloists), the selected repertoire and the reviews that evaluated the individual works. It is therefore not a chronological listing of the activities of the National Theatre's ballet troupe, but an analysis of the influence of the contemporary political situation and an attempt to place this often neglected component of the National Theatre in a historical context.
In the Name of Socialism, in the Shadow of the Monarchy: Post-War Monument Care in Central Europe
Bachtík, Jakub ; Johanidesová, Tereza ; Uhlíková, Tereza ; Giustino, Cathleen ; Sklenář, Michal ; Novotný, Michal ; Mahringer, Paul ; Lövai, Pál ; Spikić, Marko ; Janatková, Alena ; Meulen, Marcus ; Horáček, Martin ; Gaži, Martin ; Furkert, Alf ; Kovařík, David ; Radostová, Šárka
The collection of studies on the history of post-war monument care is based on the international conference Monuments and monument care in Czechoslovakia and other Central European countries during the second half of the 20th century, which took place in the spring of 2021. Selected contributions by authors from the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Croatia or Hungary map the institutional development of monument care in the countries of the former Habsburg Monarchy, a significant part of which was located on the eastern side of the Iron Curtain. The book thus offers not only a valuable comparison of the various systems of monument care within Central Europe, but also unusual material on the history of post-war European totalitarianism.

The reflection of mass media in dystopian movies shot from 1970s.
Ševců, Josef ; Jirák, Jan (advisor) ; Bednařík, Petr (referee)

It is Brave New World written by Aldous Huxley, George Orwell's 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury. The thesis summarizes the different narrative structures of selected works with an emphasis on confronting individuals with the mass media. It examines the function of the mass media, which is expected from them to the needs of the state, analyzing the media from a technical perspective and describes the parallels between the mass media-oriented themes. In particular, however, it validates the importance of mass media in correlation with the current state of society and gives examples how the vision of the authors described the present society.
The theme of guilt in Czech prose of the 1960s
HOUZIMOVÁ, Eliška
The diploma thesis is focused on the theme of guilt in the particular texts edited in the 1960s. The theme is followed with regard to the phenomena of holocaust, transfer of Sudeten Germans, collaboration and communist regime. The ties between actual and fictional world are among others considered with a view to refer to the unique character of totalitarian regimes. One of the aims is to find out parallels between the Nazi and the Communist regime and the interface of their ideologies in terms of analysis, comparison and interpretation of the texts. Simultaneously, the narrative discourse is considered within context of the influence it has got upon the interpretation of guilt. The guilt itself is surveyed with regard to the philosophy of existentialism which contributes to the specification of possible ways of defining the particular offences and their evaluation, and at the same time helps to open new ways of discussion about guilt and possibilities of staying innocent as the significant phenomena not only in the realm of the literature of the 1960s.
