Czech Journalism in the Context of the Political and Cultural Complexities

Lenka Tkáč-Zabáková, University of Constantine the Philosopher in Nitra, Slovakia;        Abstract: The study is devoted to the journalism and its genesis in the Czech cultural and language environment. The importance is laid on the socio-political changes in the Central European cultural-geographical region, which affected the evolution of traditional media in Bohemia. Further historiographical, linguistic, cultural and social anthropological knowledges help to create a complex picture of the subject concerning the importance, function and other characteristics of local print media. The contribution offers an overview of the past and current publishing activities. The attention is drawn particularly to the specific periods of the 20th century and 21st century when interdependence between the dynamics of social-political and cultural realia and the nature of news style seems to reach its climax.
