The discipline of spirit and body during the education process of the young Czech elite on the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries
The main goal of the article is to examine the significance of the discipline in the process of educating the young Czech elite at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. Examining this phenomenon was based on the collection of memoirs associated with Hradec Králové. Above all the attitude of authors of memoirs towards phenomena and cultural processes, which can be described as creating the Czech masculine identity based on the nationalism, is an object of the interest. R. Connell’s theory of the relation between the hegemonic and protesting masculinities stayed within the analysis. The memoirs from Hradec Králové constitute evidence for the fact that the Czech masculinity in the course of forming was leaned against the model of the certain indiscipline and subversion towards the official Austrian code. Simultaneously alone it produced disciplining structures and codes.
