Who is a designer
Dohnalová, Kateřina ; Staňková, Hana Grulichová (referee) ; Kubíková, Zuzana (advisor)
To what extent can anyone call themselves a designer? Where is the line that decides why and who is a designer? The aim of this bachelor thesis is to answer these simple questions. The author simultaneously draws from her own long term experience, working as a main bartender in a pub, where she tries to redesign the the core processes of this pub based on her participatory observation. As an employee she has a bigger potential of resolving the existing problems, which she finds absurd while working, or she can suggest their solution in a way that is more sustainable and co-worker friendly, but at the same time takes into account the boss and the community that shapes around the said place. The long term employer or an invited expert (designer) doesn't actually perform the job. Which means that they can't assess the situation and recommend a meaningful solution.

Perception of Religious and Mythological Lexis among EFL Users
Boško, Martin ; Lancová, Klára (advisor) ; Pípalová, Renata (referee)
This diploma thesis explores the perception of mythological and religious lexis among EFL users with an emphasis on mythology. Firstly, it provides a brief theoretical introduction to the topic, after which the main research part describes and analyses the results of research conducted in several Czech lower and upper secondary schools. This research consisted of the assignment of a specially designed worksheet that aimed, among other things, to map students' knowledge of mythological and religious lexis. Two versions of this worksheet were created based on the level of English of the respondents. At the same time, it focused to a small extent on the respondents' ability to link the information within the given worksheet. The research showed that most respondents had some awareness of mythological lexis, with this awareness becoming less important with higher levels of English. However, it also showed that respondents who rated their own knowledge of mythology highly were more likely to succeed in linguistically based exercises. Furthermore, interlingual transfer played a large role in the ability to list the names of planets in English and indicated a relatively significant lack of knowledge on this topic. Finally, neither age nor English level appeared to affect respondents' ability to link...
World: Anything bad happens. Internet: Let’s make a meme of it!
Balcaříková, Ivana ; Heřmanová,, Marie (referee) ; Kubíková, Zuzana (advisor)
So called Generation Z was born between the years 1995 and 2012. They came into The World when The Internet was already in full bloom. Gen Z and Internet are inseparable. It's their natural habitat. They move across the internet waters skillfully without any problem and at all times. The feeds of Gen Z kids are constantly filled with new information, themes, phenomenon, trends, memes. That makes the nature of the whole generation rather nihilistic and in surrender to the constant shit storm which they have to deal with every day. The biggest weapon of the Gen Z is undoubtedly their specific kind of humor. Memes, references, reaction videos are their biggest coping mechanism. These things can be seen all through their normal day to day life. This format however gives plenty of space to individual creators to express their frustration with The World's situation which they get exposed to on a daily basis. It's only natural for them to be interested and engage in bigger themes such as racism, refugee crisis, climate change or LBTQIA+ problems. Unlike their previous generations, Gen Z uses memes and humor to cope. This Bachelor theses focuses on mapping the content that through specific meme format on Tiktok explores the big themes of today's day and age. Do these short clips have any potential informative or educational value or are they just sometimes funny, cool or offensive videos that teens make to keep up with the trends. If it is so, is it problematic?
