- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhető21st Century Cinematic Representation of Care and Capitalism in I Care a Lot and in HelpKovács, Emese; Győri , Zsolt; DE--Bölcsészettudományi KarThe present dissertation examines the meanings of care and its 21st century capitalist reality in the in the films, I Care a Lot (2020) and Help (2021); moreover, it focuses on the issues of the guardianship system in the United States and the negligence of care homes in terms of assistance and protective equipment during the COVID-19 crisis in the United Kingdom. Above that, my thesis hopes to highlight the historical role that women played in caregiving while also focusing on Nancy Fraser’s concept of social reproduction and its significance in capitalist societies. Additionally, I wish to comprehend the manner in which the notions of care and capitalism have evolved and became increasingly ambiguous over time, while closely examining the relationship between Michel Foucault’s concept of biopolitics and capitalism.

- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhető9/11 and Its 10th Anniversary in the Hungarian Press(2013-01-16T13:05:07Z) Kiss, Gyöngyi; Glant, Tibor; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarIn my thesis, I will examine the history of 9/11.

- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhető9/11 and its effects on the perception of human rights in the USA(2013-06-03T08:59:50Z) Csapó, Zoltán; Vida, István Kornél; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarIn the first part of this thesis I would like to give you a closer look at the day of September 11, including the antecedents and the aftermaths of it. My aim is to give an overall picture about the whole process of 9/11 including and explaining the roots and the preparation stage of the attacks, their motivation and their effects on economy, religion and politics. In the second part I intend to take a look at the effects of 9/11 on the perception of Human Rights in the United States, with the intention to focus on how are these terrorist attacks influenced Human Rights and the treatment of Arabs and Muslims worldwide, including Governmental restrictions, discrimination, the Patriot Act and the life and abuses of detainees at Guantanamo Bay.
- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhető9/11 Conspiracy Theories(2013-02-18T08:10:28Z) Sáfrány, Beáta; Glant, Tibor; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarIn this work I aim to present and refute the 9/11 conspiracy theories, as well as to explain why people find these theories seductive. With this paper, I attempt to warn Hungarians that blaming some conspiracy within the U.S. government “for the horrific attacks of September 11 mars the memories of all those lost on that day” (Dunbar and Reagan xiv) and the memories of all the Hungarian soldiers who gave their life to the American cause in Afghanistan and Iraq. It is not possible to tell anyone what they should believe, but I hope that with this work I can, at least, encourage people to look at both the conspiracy theories and the official story and decide for themselves whether or not 9/11 was an inside job. As for me, I do not believe that the U.S. government either made or let the attacks happen on purpose. I believe that these theories are false not only because I want to honor the memories of our compatriots, but also because real evidence suggests that on September 11, 2001 America was attacked by terrorists and not by Americans.
- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhető"A Mad King or a Misunderstood Monarch?" - George III and the Road to the Loss of the American ColoniesGötz, Alexandra; Borus, György; DE--Bölcsészettudományi KarThe thesis focuses on George III (1760-1820), the charges that were bring aginst him and what led to the loss of the American Colonies. The aim of the thesis is to refute the charges of madness and tyranny by reviewing the aftermath of the Glorious Revolution (1688-89), the Bill of Rights(1689), the British Constitution and several theories regarding George's illness. The paper also concentrates on how the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) and the political crisis of the 1760s contributed to the American War of Independence (1775-83). Overall, the goal of the paper is to prove George III was only a misunderstood monarch instead of a "mad tyrant" who lost the colonies.
- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhetőAbout the European Arrest Warrant in Relation to a Judicial Case(2013-01-24T13:23:00Z) Elek, Gabriella; Simon, Zoltán; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarBeing a practicing criminal jurist I have chosen the subject matter of my examination paper from the new field of European Union law. Since 2004, Hungary has been a part of the European Union, which is regarded as a unified juridical territory of freedom, security and justice. The European arrest warrant is a quick, effective but humane measure of criminal investigation in this common unified territory. Its concept, necessity and application are outlined briefly in the following. Difficulties caused by the simultaneous application of different national laws of Member States may be overcome by the autonomous concept of the European Union law. It is demonstrated through the example of a cocaine smuggler that the same fact may infringe different rules of national criminal laws in each Member State and can be a subject to different classifications in those states. Therefore according to settled case law of the Court the relevant criteria for assessing the criminal act are the material facts and acts understood as the existence of a set of facts and acts which are inextricably linked together, irrespective of the legal classification given to them or the legal interest protected in national level. In addition some examples of case law of the European Court of Justice are given.

- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhetőAbsent Mothers and Fathers in Kate Atkinson’s Behind the Scenes at the Museum and Human Croquet(2014-04-30T12:45:09Z) Tóth, Adrienn; Ureczky, Eszter; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarKate Atkinson is a contemporary writer and she became one of the best-selling British authors.This thesis is about two of her novels, Behind the Scenes at the Museum, and Human Croquet. The main theme is how mothers and fathers are absent in both of the novels and how they are inaccessible for the protagonists.

- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhetőAbuse and Recovery with Black Sisterhood: Alice Walker's The Color PurpleKoncz, Lilla; Németh, Lenke Mária; DE--Bölcsészettudományi KarIn my thesis, I aim to explore the female protagonist Celie’s physical and psychological wounds caused by patriarchy, her recovery and struggle for selfhood by breaking free of oppressive patriarchal forces with the help of black sisterhood in Alice Walker’s The Color Purple (1982). Set in rural Georgia in the first half of the 20th century, the novel addresses the significance and power of women’s supporting relationships, and related to that I claim that with the help of black sisterhood, Celie is able to find her long-repressed identity, which results in a liberating climax for her, in her attainment of freedom from the constraintssocial, economic, and sexualimposed upon her by patriarchy.
- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhetőAdapting Superheroes to the Screen(2013-01-24T13:11:23Z) Horváth, Gábor; Varró, Gabriella; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarThe two movies directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale as Batman are the focus of my thesis, particularly the symbolism present: Batman’s actions following a tragic trauma mirror the actions the United States took after 911, declaring war against several terrorist organizations such as the Taliban and Al-Queda. The enemies that he faces in the movies, Ra’s al Ghul in Batman Begins and the Joker in The Dark Knight, are presented as terrorists hell bent on enacting their scheme on Gotham city, causing panic and destroying the city because of their moral convictions. My argument is, that through this symbolism present in the characters and their historical and current actions, the movies are justifying the actions of the United States.

- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhetőAdolescent Crisis in J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye(2013-06-07T11:49:05Z) Medgyesi, Ivett; Miklódy, Éva; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi Kar[...] J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye (1951) entirely devoted to a teenager’s problems and difficulties he had to face from the beginning to the end of the book. Salinger, with this novel, gained a critical and popular acclaim that put him among the most significant post-World War II American novelists.

- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhetőAdrian Mole as a Contemporary (Anti-) Hero and the British Cultural Context(2013-03-26T09:10:36Z) Gillyné Vékony, Ágnes; Kőrösi, Márta; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarEnglish literature undoubtedly offers a wide range of excellent literary works to analyse, so at first it seemed really difficult to decide who and what to choose to write my thesis about. I cannot explain why but my first idea for the topic was Sue Townsend’s Adrian Mole diaries. So about a year ago I started to read or reread all the Mole diaries. Adrian’s life story has been following the majority of the late 20th century and the beginning of the 21st, so his life has been changing in parallel with my own life story, although he is ten years younger than me. Secondly, the novel has such an unusual title that it immediately seized my imagination, namely, the extremity of the word ‘secret’: if it is a secret, how can it be published? ... (Introduction)
- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhetőAdvantages and Disadvantages of Learning a Second Language in the Target Country(2013-05-23T13:28:34Z) Terdik, Mónika; Kissné Gulyás, Judit; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarThe difference between natural second language acquisition and formal language learning has always been an interesting research topic for linguists. There are several papers and articles that explore if acquiring a language in a natural setting, meaning in the country where that particular language is spoken, or in formal environment, which means in a classroom where the grammar and other aspects of language are taught or the combination of both is the best solution. (e.g. Krashen, 1988; Pica, 1983, Long, 1983) [...] My hypothesis states that spending considerable time abroad will help improving fluency, vocabulary, pronunciation, the use communication strategies, but will not help development in pronunciation.
- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhetőAdvertising and Gender(2013-03-26T15:07:21Z) Oroszné Koncz, Nóra; Györke, Ágnes; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarThe thesis should show the tendencies in the world of advertising explicitly, in a logical and understandable way. It should reveal how the unconscious processes can be made conscious. The gender aspect, with the help of the underwear images, should mirror the stages of the changes in society towards sexuality and also that of the representation of men and women in different periods of time. Underwear is the connection between the “man” and the “woman”; it is worn by them for the same period of time. But its function and the way it was (and is) depicted in advertisements is different...
- TételKorlátozottan hozzáférhetőAffecting factors in language learning(2013-04-08T14:01:47Z) Országh, Viktória; Sankó, Gyula; DE--TEK--Bölcsészettudományi KarIn my thesis I intend to deal with personality and individual differences, language aptitude, family background, self-motivation and motivation, anxiety and creativity, and the difference between learning our mother language and the second language. An analysis will be taken through a questionnaire answered by language learners in my writing. These factors I think can lead us to the better understanding of language learning and that way help to become more successful in language teaching.
