My views on Czech biography featured in a Different Lives monograph (Brill, 2020)

I am very honored that my study called Between ‘Creators and Bearers of the Czech National Myth’ and an ‘Academic Suicide’: Czech Biography in the Twenty-First Century was recently published in a monograph Different Lives: Global Perspective on Biography in Public Cultures and Societies, edited by Hans Renders and David Veltman at the Brill publishing house.

Thank you very much for this opportunity! I hope you enjoy the book. 🙂

Youth to Youth: The Freedom Mosaic (2019)

Youth to Youth: The Freedom Mosaic presents a mosaic of narratives of former student revolutionaries from 1989. The documentary captures their memories on the late 1980’s in Czechoslovakia, the Velvet Revolution and on the decades after. It shows how the narrators reflected the 1990’s – euphorically as well as critically –, the beginning of the new millennium and our present days. Oral history interviews are completed with a period footage and historical commentaries.

Mladí mladým: Mozaika svobody (2019)

Dokument představuje pomyslnou mozaiku vzpomínek někdejších studentských revolucionářů z roku 1989 na sametovou revoluci i dění následující. Pracuje zejména s původními orálně historickými rozhovory a autenticky tak zachycuje, jak narátoři z celé České republiky v současnosti reflektují – euforicky i kriticky – 90. léta, počátek 21. století i současnost. Zvláštní místo je v dokumentu věnováno dnešní mladé generaci, respektive tomu, v čem se liší dnešní angažovaní studenti od těch z roku 1989. Orálně historické rozhovory jsou navíc doplněny o archivní záběry a doprovodný komentář historiků.
