Folktale, dream and their connections
Vídršperková, Lenka ; Kučera, Miloš (advisor) ; Smetáčková, Irena (referee) ; Voldřich, Michal (referee)
The dissertation discusses the similarities or even possible relatedness of folktales and dreams. The theoretical framework of this research is mainly psychoanalytical - in accordance with psychoanalytic theory, the assumption is accepted that manifestations of the unconscious can be observed in folktales, as well as in dreams. Manifest and latent content can be found in both, folktales and dreams, and therefore they can be interpreted. Some authors, such as the Hungarian folklorist G. Róheim, propose that a folktale originally comes from an individual dream, which was told by a dreamer and gradually enriched with cultural specifics. M. Kučera's theory of induction follows from this - folktales induce dreams that would have been dreamed anyway, because their content is based on child's unconscious needs and conflicts. The first part presents the theoretical basis. In the next part, a possible procedure for interpreting a folktale is shown on the folktale type ATU 510B (Princess with a Golden Star on her Forehead from B. Němcová). The available versions of the folktale are searched and compared; the basic timeline of the folktale is defined. The most famous interpretations are presented: According to some of them, the folktale deals with the psyche of an abused woman, according to others, the...

Svobodová, Julie ; Laufková, Veronika (advisor) ; Novotná, Kateřina (referee)
This bachelor's thesis deals with fairy tales in relation to contemporary children of pre-school age and their knowledge and preferences of these fairy tales. My ambition is to point out what is the meaning and value of fairy tales for children as well as the importance and benefits of children's fairy tales knowledge and preference investigation. In my opinion, it is necessary to find out how children are currently doing in the field of fairy tales to let it contribute to their development.

How to wank princesses
Schättingerová, Nataly ; Houdek, Vladimír (referee) ; Homola, Ondřej (advisor)
The bachelor's thesis, entitled How to annoy princesses, deals with some aspects of tourism, as it manifests itself in crowded historical monuments. The personal experience of tour guide at Kost Castle offers me a perspective on the issue, with which I emphasize the common interest of the "mouflons" (i.e. castle visitors) for spectacle and sensations (fables, myths, Czech fairy tales, ghosts), which often wins over the interest in history itself. I capture the atmosphere of commercialized monuments in a grotesque way that is close to me. The goal of the work is to set a mirror to the public and ideally to stir up a debate about the decline of visitors' interest in the professional aspects of guiding or the state of the monuments themselves. The series of figurative medium-format oil paintings, supplemented by audio processing untrue facts, untrue stories and myths, indirectly follows on the book The Last Aristocrat written by Evžen Boček , which deals with a similar theme.
Pain of shapeshifting
Daniš, Vojtěch ; Lastomirský, Ján (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
The bachelor's thesis entitled Pain of Shapeshifting follows on from the author's previous works, in which he dealt with topics such as nostalgia, communication with inanimate objects, the relationship between the living and the inanimate, past experience and change as mental and physical development (transformation). Now he combines these elements with new ones, with an interest in a kind of transition or "portal" between the waking and dream worlds. Interpretation of dreams, dream symbols, as well as pop culture references from fairy tales or mythological stories serve as a guide for the author. He compares the motifs of these stories with human characteristics and the development of their nature. He works with motifs where the protagonist goes through a transformation, whether it's going through a "portal" or interacting with a magical object. Alice in Wonderland passes through a "portal" in the form of a rabbit hole, in The Wizard of Oz this transmission is caused by a tornado, in Sleeping Beauty by a thorn, in Snow White by an apple, and so on.

Furthermore, the goal is to determine whether parents only use fairy tales passively or actively, and to investigate whether parents are aware of the influence of literature on children's development. Then, based on the answers obtained, create methodical material - a manual with suggested activities that parents could apply to (almost) any fairy tale and which supports better use of fairy tales in a family environment. With the help of this supportive material, parents would be able to work with fairy tales better and more efficiently, and thus would specifically support the development of pre- literacy in their children. The effectiveness of this tool in the family environment...
Lázničková, Klára ; Babáková, Bernardeta (referee) ; Klímová, Barbora (advisor)
The diploma project Fairy Tale involves performative works with the poems as a diary record and its sharing. As part of my project, I offer my narrative poems written in a fairy tale language, as an act of sharing and therefore engagement with the readers and audience as participants. The poems were written spontaneously, reflecting a particular time in my life. They carry the sadness and suffering of the archetype the princesses and are an authentic description as well as an attempt to cope with a particular traumatic situation through different periods of time. The individual poems can serve as different perspectives on a given situation and reveal my ability or inability to look more consciously at unpleasant life situations. For me, the fairy tale world carries a stubbornness and underlines the painfulness of the illusions created; through it, I encounter stereotypical views of gender roles in the poems, observing my patterns of behavior and the sources of painful emotions. I associate the fairytale world of princes and princesses with the first great frustration and lies carrying confusion over the functioning, form and course of interpersonal partner relationships. I would like to dedicate my thesis to the sharing of intrinsic emotions in all their forms, mistakes, pains, smallness and strength and to interpersonal bonds, reciprocity, the ability to share, self-reflection, communication and sensitivity.
