Negotiating Identity: Second Generation of Lithuanian Immigrants in Great Britain
Dacys, Lucie ; Lánský, Ondřej (advisor) ; Fapšo, Marek (referee)
This diploma thesis explores the negotiation of identity among second generation Lithuanian immigrants in the UK and aims to find out how children of migrants reflect the life between the two worlds and cultures - whether they identify more with the culture and lifestyle of the destination country, maintain a Lithuanian identity for the sake of their family members, or develop a so-called third culture. The first part of the thesis serves as a theoretical framework and focuses on several key themes - the theory of migration is introduced, in which the emphasis is put on the history and present of Lithuanian emigration and also on the theory of transnational migration; the concept of identity is discussed, which is viewed from several perspectives - national, transnational, social or ethnic identities are presented, and last but not least, the theory of third culture children and their identity; and the process of socialisation and its specifics are also discussed. The analytical part is then a case study of members of the second generation of Lithuanian migrants in the UK and presents an analysis of their perception of their own identity. KEYWORDS Migration, identity, concept of self, Lithuania, Great Britain

Multiculturalism Policy in Canada: Exploring the Dispute with Québec through Framing Analysis.
Hrynuik Breedon, Hannah Mae ; Jelínková, Marie (advisor) ; Jusić, Mirna (referee)
Multiculturalism has been an official federal government policy in Canada since 1971 and is strongly associated with the country. However, from its inception, it has been met with strong criticism and opposition in the predominantly French-speaking province of Québec. While the long history of French-English conflicts in Canada has been explored, there is a paucity of comprehensive literature that focuses on the resurgence of this particular dispute in the last decade. This period includes Québec's adoption of several new, high profile, and controversial policies and laws that mark a rejection of the federal policy. To help fill this gap, and develop a more specific and contemporary description of this dispute, this paper uses frame analysis as a lens through which to examine a range of sources including news articles, government documents, press releases, speeches and interviews. Through this analysis six frames used by federal and provincial actors are identified and discussed: "Unique Cultural Preservation", "Québecois as Dominant Culture" and "Provincial Autonomy" on one side; and "Cultural Diversity and Pluralism", "Accommodation" and "National Unity" on the other. The findings reveal that the dispute is rooted in a historic struggle for power between the province and the federal government...
Construction and development of student identity of college students whose parents do not have university degree
Škanderová, Taťána ; Machovcová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Smetáčková, Irena (referee)
This master thesis investigates how student identity of college students whose parents do not have university degree is constructed and further developed. The aim is to find out what meanings, factors, resources, actors and identities enter and influence the process of building and developing their student identity. It focuses on turning points, which are accompanied by a change in their own identity and uncertainty in their own social and cultural world. The theoretical part of the work is focused on defining and describing the specific characteristics of college students with parents without a college degree, the problem of a deficit perspective on them and the specifics of first-generation students in more prestigious fields of study. The following sections deal with social and educational inequalities from a historical point of view in the Czech context and from the point of view of critical social psychology. The conclusion is devoted to identity, which is viewed from three theoretical perspectives, namely from the perspective of social identity theory, from the perspective of social constructivism, and from the sociocultural developmental perspective on identity changes. In the empirical part, repeated semi-structured in-depth interviews and photo diaries were used to collect data. The...
Catalan identity and nationalism from the perspective of Catalan and Spanish political parties between 2014 and 2017
Pěkná, Adéla ; Kasáková, Zuzana (advisor) ; Tomalová, Eliška (referee)
The period from 2014 to 2017 was marked in Catalonia by many events and tensions surrounding independence issues. This work "Catalan identity and nationalism from the perspective of Catalan and Spanish political parties between 2014 and 2017" aims to find out how identity themes are captured in the programs of political parties across the entire political spectrum in Catalonia, i. e. in the programs of both national and Catalan parties, and whether the processing of these themes leads to a clear interpretation of Catalan identity or problematizes it. The work is based on the interpretation of the nation according to Anthony D. Smith and the national identity derived from it, expanded with linguistic themes and cultural peculiarities of the community of nations according to Eric J. Hobsbawm. The application of thematic analysis on the political proclamations were identified based on the formulation of these parties' national-identity perception of Catalonia. The basic source are the election programs of the Catalan political parties. This work concludes that the themes represented by the national-identity issue in the program of Catalan political parties are language, protection of cultural heritage and territorial identity. However, processing these topics does not lead to a clear interpretation of...
LGBT+ topics as curricula in foregin language edution in the Czech schools
Polách, Dominik ; Smetáčková, Irena (advisor) ; Topolovská, Tereza (referee)
This thesis "LGBT+ topics as curricula in foreign language education in the Czech schools" deals with the issue of integrating LGBT+ and gender-related topics into foreign language teaching. This thesis builds on previous research in the field of LGBT+ in Czech schools. Through a qualitative study in the form of semi-structured interviews with foreign language teachers in Czech primary and secondary schools, answers are sought to the questions of how are LGBT+ and gender topics integrated into foreign language teaching and how are these topics dealt with in foreign language classes. Teachers' perspectives on the integration of these topics into language teaching and possible problems that may arise when integrating these topics into language teaching are also researched. It was found that in most cases these topics arise spontaneously in foreign language classes, usually from the learners' side, who find these issues present and interesting. Teachers perceive certain shortcomings in the teaching materials in terms of integrating these topics, but they find the incorporation in the curriculum sufficient in terms of the general theme of tolerance and respect. And in relation to the theme of tolerance and respect, they consider the integration of LGBT+ and gender issues into language teaching to be...

Rolencová, Vanessa ; Topolovská, Tereza (advisor) ; Ženíšek, Jakub (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to discuss and analyse the analogies between the play Romeo and Juliet (1597) by William Shakespeare and its retelling These Violent Delights (2020) and Our Violent Ends (2021) by Chloe Gong. It further aims to examine the aforementioned literary works in the context of identity and the aspects that constitute it. The thesis also focuses on the author's intentions and the significance of her focus in the duology under discussion. The theoretical part provides the necessary terminology and introduction to the works of both authors. It also includes a necessary introduction to the historical context of Shanghai in the late 1920s, which serves to an analysis of its depiction in Chloe Gong's work. The practical part is divided into selected influences on identity and how they shape the characters in the books. The examination focuses on the influence of family and family background, romantic relationships and the environment and place in which one grew up. KEYWORDS William Shakespeare, Chloe Gong, retelling, identity, Shanghai
The Identity Construction and Self-Perception of Queer Sinti and Roma
Tremel, Alicia Sarah Beate ; Uherek, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Wirthová, Jitka (referee)
This thesis examines the identity construction and self-perception of queer Sinti and Roma in Central Europe. Sinti and Roma are at the fringe of society and are subjected to discrimination and antiziganist stigmatisation. As a result, identity construction involves greater effort and leads to the creation of a collective identity that provides Sinti and Roma with a sense of belonging. Queer Sinti and Roma are exposed to intersectional discrimination on the axes of racism and homophobia and occupy a special position within identity formation. Incorporating data from three narrative interviews, testimonies and selected chapters from an autobiographical book, this study demonstrates that intersectional discrimination highly influences identity formation within queer Sinti and Roma. It was shown that identity construction was shaped by concepts like Masking Identity and the Perception of Othering that can be overcome by finding spaces of Belonging and social networks that display Allyship. The establishment of safe spaces for queer Sinti and Roma are crucial for the creation of spaces of Belonging and the manifestation of a mutual group identity. Keywords: Identity, Sinti, Roma, Nationalism, Ethnicity, LGBTIQ, Gender Studies, Intersectionality, Belonging and Othering, Allyship.
