Caves in Bohemia et Moravia Subterranea by Mauritius Vogt (1669–1730)
Rychnová, L. ; Vokurka, Michal
The Manuscript Bohemia et Moravia Subterranea (1729) by Mauritius Vogt reflects the subterranean landscapes and underground spaces based on Athanasius Kircher’s theories. The paper analyses the application of Kirchers’s terminology to the natural phenomena from Bohemia and Moravia. Further, we focused on how Vogt worked with his sources – how far he relied on literature, correspondence, or personal experience.
Underground on the hill? Interfaces and differences between the underground and the Hanspaul movement
Melichar, Dominik
Undergroundová, především hudební scéna je relativně uzavřené společenství spjaté především se jmény Ivana Martina Jirouse, Egona Bondyho a kapelou The Plastic People of the Universe, na něž se paprskovitě váže celá řada aktivit dalších jednotlivců a skupin rozesetých po celé republice. Hanspaulské hnutí, které své počátky datuje rokem 1966, vrchol do konce sedmdesátých let a postupný úpadek do poloviny let osmdesátých 20. století, dosud nebyla v souvislosti s undergroundem promýšlena. Cílem těchto úvah bylo poukázat na souvislosti, ale i rozdíly mezi oběma komunitami a poukázat tak na problematičnost vyčleňování undergroundového hnutí z mnohem širšího prostředí dalších neoficiálních a totalitním státem neřízených činností.

Czechoslovak dissent as a learning society
Padevět, Jiří ; Veteška, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Kříž, Jaroslav (referee)
The diploma thesis is dealing with the problematics of Czechoslovak/Czech dissent, especially in the years from 1977 to 1989 and with its position as a learning society on its own. In the text, the status of dissent in the general society is described and followed, along with the ostracization of it, which ultimately led to a forming of a parallel polis, which included both parallel educational and cultural systems. Those were based on transmitting and sharing knowledge and skills inside of the community. Considering many activities performed by dissent organizations, the thesis takes interest mainly in four educational and cultural structures: home seminars, home theatre, samizdats and so-called festival of the second culture, both personally and organizationally bonded to Charter 77. These activites are not perceived only from the cultural history perspective, but more importantly with the help of andragogy and learning society concept. In conclusion, the thesis will focus on such specific educational and cultural topics and not only its impact on the parallel polis of dissent, but on the society in general, as well. The main intention of the theoretical and analytic part of the thesis is to analyze, identify and describe key milestones and phenomenons, tied with the informal learning of adults...

Vančura, Sebastian ; Groman, Martin (advisor) ; Štoll, Martin (referee)
The bachelor thesis Analysis of movie and television content referring to the Czech underground produced before 1989 focuses on the elements of communist propaganda in the nationwide campaign against the Czechoslovak underground in the 1970s. The thesis examines film and television content produced about the underground movement in the 1970s using qualitative discursive and content analysis method.

In the conclusion, the most important findings of the analysis are summarized and the propaganda elements of the two analysed films are compared. The thesis aims to...
Underground culture – adaptation of an old brewery in Litovel
Doupovcová, Zoja ; Růžička, Tomáš (referee) ; Koleček, Ivan (advisor)
Litovel, or Moravian Venice - a town with rich history, that has its fate tied together with flowy branches of Morava River. A town, that has diverse opportunities and potential, town that is culturally rich, town full of unusual and surprising places. One of those surprising places is the underground complex of spaces originally belonging to an old brewery - seemingly condemned to be forgotten forever and replaced with a new housing complex. Is it possible to save this half-forgotten world of arches from its fate? Can we find a new solution for this blind spot on the border of historical center, that can both save the historical heritage and help the town fight with housing crisis? These are the questions the following project aims to answer. It mainly covers an architectural study of an adaptation of the underground cellar spaces and their younger second floor addition - the project also tries to reconnect them with the cultural life of the town. The project includes new public space design and conceptual solution for the brownfield around our site. The work also offers an alternative for the new housing complex which works better with its surroundings and pre-existing urban landscape.

Forms of the Czech underground scene
Šulcová, Andrea ; Kubíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Klumparová, Štěpánka (referee)
Resumé The diploma thesis is dedicated to the forms of the Czech underground scene on the basis of the analysis of two samizdat literary journals - Vokno (1979-1989) and Revolver Revue (1985-1989). The thesis studies analogous and distinct tendencies in both magazines which became the platforms of the different underground generations. Vokno is connected with the first underground generation that was formed at the beginning of the 1970s. The second underground generation debuted at beginning of the 1980s and later united around the Revolver Revue magazine. The next part of the diploma thesis focuses on the symptomatic features of the poetics of four central writers that shaped the appearance of the journals. The analysis arises from the texts published in both Vokno and Revolver Revue magazines.

Kubová, Kateřina ; Mareš, Petr (advisor) ; Vaňková, Irena (referee)
Kubova, Katerina: Language and Style of Underground Children's Books: The Thesis. Prague: The Faculty of Arts of The Charles University, Institute of Czech Language and Theory of Communication, 2011. Thesis Advisor: Prof. PhDr. Petr Mares, CSc. This thesis aims to examine the linguistic and stylistic aspects of Czech underground literature for children. In the first part, it focuses on the specifics of children's literature and on the term "child aspect" which serves as a criterion for further analysis of selected texts. The thesis also presents selected writers of children's literature and their work. The linguistic and stylistic analysis is largely based on the book Současná stylistika (The Contemporary Czech Stylistics), which characterizes the individual linguistic levels of a fictional text. Texts for children, written by Egond Bondy and Ivan Martin Jirous, the most prominent figures of the Czech cultural underground of the 1970's and 1980's, are analyzed. Finally, the linguistic and stylistic features of the samizdat anthology Čert má kopyto… (The Devil Has a Hoof…), which represents a sum of the Czech underground literature for children, are examined, determining texts that meet both the criterion of the children's literature and the criterion of the underground poetics, and therefore...
