Full-text available
Gender inequalities are geographically determined and inuenced (among others) by dominant culture and religion. For example, the inuence of Muslim cultural rules and traditions (not necessarily based on Quran) on the status of women is frequent topic of geographical and popular studies in recent years. Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity form chara...
Article
The process of postsecularisation is present not only in Western Europe but also in post-communist countries. This paper focuses on the way young adults who do not have personal experiences with communist anti-religious ideology create their own religion in postsecular society and re-imagine (post)secular spaces through personal belief. The primary...
Book
Předkládaná publikace si klade neskromný cíl přispět do obecné diskuze o roli náboženství v současné společnosti a prostoru Česka, a to se zaměřením na aktuální trendy, které lze pro větší názornost označit poměrně obecným pojmem postsekularismus, který ovšem ve většině případů nevede k návratu tradičních náboženských struktur a církví utvořených v...
Article
Czechia could be labeled as country of an indifferent approach to religious ideas, as religious faith is considered a private issue, and the role of religion in the public sphere is low. This article summarizes the first attempt to research Korean Protestant churches active in current Czechia. A total of fourteen churches is briefly overviewed stat...
Article
Full-text available
Recently, geography has included in research the increasing role of religion in postmodern Western society and space. Religion is no more being understood as an objective truth, but as an individual experience of a person with a significant impact on the perception of space and place-making. This problematic undoubtedly requires a new theoretical a...
Article
Full-text available
The paper discusses the transformations of the religious structure of European society manifested, among other ways, in an increased intolerance toward cultures other than Christian and secular, most notably the Muslim culture. The objective is to analyse the causes of the fear of Islam and explain Islamophobia in two socially and geographically di...
Article
Přestože se více než 80 % obyvatel Prahy neidentifikuje s žádnou církví ani náboženskou společností, díky bohatému historickému vývoji spjatému s katolicismem je sakrální krajina města velmi pestrá. Dominance katolicismu je sice patrná dodnes, nicméně hlavně v průběhu 20. století se začaly výrazně pluralizovat nejen náboženské tradice, které v Praz...
Article
In this contribution we discuss the obstacles and share our opinions about the causes of delayed development of feminist and queer approaches in Czech and to some extent also Slovak human geographies. We primarily focus on a critical description of causes and factors that affected and continue to hinder their presence within local mainstream geogra...
Article
Recent developments in cultural geography have brought forth everyday life and emotions as critical categories for understanding place. Yet, the focus on everyday emotional geographies also presents methodological challenges. This paper argues that auto‐photography is a particularly well‐suited method to explore the intricate relations between ever...
Book
The Atlas of Religions in Czechia represents the first extensive and comprehensive geographical analysis of the state and transformation of religious landscape of Czechia since the fall of communist regime in 1989. The Atlas is divided into three parts: the first part is about regional differentiation of selected religious movements and groups in t...
Article
In this paper, we approach religion and spirituality through the analytic lens of the everyday and examine how ordinary women make sacred space through their embodied, emotional, and spatially varying practices. Our research is grounded in Czechia where about 80% of inhabitants do not declare any religious affiliation and ‘new’ religions are on the...
Article
Full-text available
The Western world is experiencing increasing popularity of new religious movements whose adherents tend to spirituality, a subjective, personal form of religion. These spiritual forms shape the spaces of everyday life, their meanings, perceptions, and experiences, which is starting to be reflected in new geographies of religion. In Czechia, one of...
Article
The religious climate caused significant changes over the last few decades which led to intense debates about post-secularism in Western Europe. However, there is particularly a distinct lack of analyses of the features of post-secularism in post-communist cities. The paper draws on the case study of Prague where the religious landscape is in many...

Abstract - Feminist geographies of religion: Christianity in everyday life of young women – Religion influences people's everyday life, including the way they structure their families, and relationships between men and women in general. Religious adherents tend to hold more traditional and even gender-stereotypical values. The association between r...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
An important part of Christian culture is formed by patriarchal values. The concept of patriarchy is essential especially to capture the different aspects of women’s subordination and can be developed in such a way as to take account of the different forms of gender inequality over time. Gender inequalities, which are key factors for shaping the ev...

The contribution focuses on the role that religious identity play in women’s experience of space. It expands the research in the feminist geographies of religion. In general, the sacred finds its way into many corners of women’s everyday life. Religion is a cultural filter that forms the stereotypical perception of space which comes from the histor...

Always in flux, landscapes are never stabile. Mobilities of various objects and subjects are either inherent part or directly and indirectly contribute to these continual transformations. During the 20th century Czech landscapes have witnessed several transformations induced by political, cultural, economic and societal development. Thus the aim of...

Religion influences people’s everyday life, including the way they structure their families, and relationships between men and women in general. Religious adherents tend to hold more traditional and even gender-stereotypical values. The association between religion and gender relations in space lends itself well to an analysis through feminist geog...
Article
Full-text available
The status of women in society is very diverse worldwide. Among many important traits associated with the differentiation of gender inequality is religion, which itself must be regarded as a fluid concept with interpretations and practices 'embedded' and thus varying with respect to cultural and historical relations. Admitting the complexity of the...
