AnotationThe essence of the project is the involvement of four Ph.D. students and one graduate student (potential Ph.D. student) in teamwork under the methodological guidance of three teachers. The team will build on a successful project SGS02/FF/2020-2021. The team will carry out specific research on selected topics related to the issues of continuity/discontinuity of the development of Czech society in the first half of the 20th century. Individual researchers will track these issues from the point of their dissertation topics, which connect issues of economic, social and cultural development of Czechoslovak society. The composition of the team allows using various methodological approaches (research of various types of archive sources, application of specific historical methods of research), where their mutual combination will extend the possibilities of historical interpretations. The motivation for submitting this project is the effort to involve PhD students with related dissertation projects in team work and to start their independent scientific research with an emphasis on the quality of controllable outputs. The outputs of research will be realized in a form of studies in peer-reviewed journals, chapters of dissertation theses and active participation at the scientific conferences/workshops.
