Otherness in George R. R. Martin's Fantasy Novel A Game of Thrones
Andraž Gradišnik, 2018, magistrsko delo

Opis: The thesis explores otherness in A Game of Thrones, a fantasy novel written by George R. R. Martin. The research is possible because of the cultural and social diversity incorporated into the novel. Furthermore, the attention is paid not only to male but also female characters. Martin portrays otherness through exotic cultures, illegitimate children, untypical female and male characters, disability, etc. In A Game of Thrones, the story unfolds from the point of view of several characters. Since the majority of these characters are members of one (or more) out-groups, it is possible to analyze outsiders' position in a fantasy world governed by the norms set by the dominant society. The thesis begins with the theory of fantasy, focusing on the origins of the term and its use in literature. The authors that contributed to the fantasy genre are mentioned and their actions discussed. A connection is established between fantasy and history, followed by a short summary of the events in the Middle Ages. The literary term 'otherness' is introduced. Several types of otherness are listed and explained – national, ethnic and cultural otherness; gender; and disability. A short summary of the events in the novel is added. In the second part of the thesis, the otherness within the novel is analyzed. The emphasis is on how the out-groups and their members react to the norms set by the dominant society.

Soil liquefaction in the Tone river basin during the 2011 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tohoku
Stanislav Lenart, Junichi Koseki, Yukika Miyashita, 2012, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: A brief report about the liquefaction damage in the Tone river basin, caused by the 2011 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tohoku, is presented. It includes sand boiling, damage to river dikes, the settlement and tilt of superstructures, the uplift of light underground structures and lateral spreading. A history of land reclamation along the Tone river is briefly presented to understand why extensive liquefaction took place predominantly inreclaimed land. The recorded ground motions near the river were analyzed andcompared to near-source ground motions. The effects of the site location and the ground conditions during the peak ground acceleration are discussed.

Ivan Grohar and Oskar Dev
Franc Križnar, 2014, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: The new Grohar’s room in the Škofja Loka Museum that is located in a more than a thousand years old town, some kilometres northwest of Ljubljana, Slovenia, represents one of the new possibilities to popularize old local history. Ivan Grohar (1867−1911) is one of the four well-known Slovenian painters from the beginning of the 20th century, together with Rihard Jakopič, Matija Jama and Matej Sternen. These Slovenian painters are the founders of Impressionism within the modern style. Škofja Loka became the so called Slovenian “Barbizon” (i.e. French village near Fontainebleau, once the settlement of painters) and this art and old tradition inspired another Slovenian (music) artist Oskar Dev (1868−1932), who composed some of his musical works (songs and choirs) in Škofja Loka, too. His and Grohar’s period in Škofja Loka resulted in some extraordinary art works i.e. paintings and musical works. They both were inspired by the countryside that reflected on their works. This is now one of the new Slovenian’s challenges of museology and musicology in an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach so the art of painting and music could be a benefit for the visitors of this and other museums.

Self-organization of progress across the century of physics
Matjaž Perc, 2013, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: We make use of information provided in the titles and abstracts of over half a million publications that were published by the American Physical Society during the past 119 years. By identifying all unique words and phrases and determining their monthly usage patterns, we obtain quantifiable insights into the trends of physics discovery from the end of the 19th century to today. We show that the magnitudes of upward and downward trends yield heavy-tailed distributions, and that their emergence is due to the Matthew effect. This indicates that both the rise and fall of scientific paradigms is driven by robust principles of self-organization. Data also confirm that periods of war decelerate scientific progress, and that the later is very much subject to globalisation.

Family history as a predictor for disease risk in healthy individuals
Zalika Klemenc-Ketiš, Borut Peterlin, 2013, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: Background Family history can be used as a genetic risk predictor for common non-communicable diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of healthy individuals at risk of developing these diseases, based on their self-reported family history.Methods and Findings This was a cross-sectional observational study. Data were collected in the three largest occupational practices in primary health care centres in Slovenia, a Central European country. The study population consisted of consecutive individuals who came to occupational practices for their regular preventive check-up from November 2010 to June 2012. We included 1,696 individuals. Data were collected by a self-developed questionnaire. The main outcome was the number of participants at a moderate or high risk for the development of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and cancer.The final sample consisted of 1,340 respondents. Moderate or high risk for the development of cardiovascular diseases was present in 280 (20.9%) participants, for the development of diabetes in 154 (11.5%) participants and for cancer in 163 (12.1%) participants. Conclusions In this study, we found a significant proportion of healthy individuals with an increased genetic risk for common non-communicable diseases; consequently further genetic and clinical evaluation and preventive measures should be offered.

Die Authentizität in Maja Haderlaps Roman Engel des Vergessens
Miša Glišič, 2014, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: This article analyses the authenticity of memories in the second half of the 20th century in Carinthia. The segmentation of historical authenticity is visible in the historical reminiscence of traumatic historical events in relation to social interaction. The combination of social, political und cultural elements affects the divergent experience of individuals in determinated environment. The complexity of the novel is seen in the inner feelings, which characterization relates to emotions and the subconscious of the population. The article focuses on the female perspective as well as on the role of women in the story. The author proves with her experience of unconsciously the unsolved problematic of her own literalizing of history. The personality of the writer is shown in the examples of double literary, personal and lingual identity.

Correlates of depression in the slovenian working population
Zalika Klemenc-Ketiš, Borut Peterlin, 2013, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: This multicentre, cross-sectional observational study aimed to determine the prevalence of depression among the working population of Slovenia and identify factors correlating with higher prevalence of depression. It was conducted in three occupational medicine practices within major Slovenian primary health care centres. The study population consisted of 1,474 respondents [73.7 % of the invited participants, 889 (60.3 %) men and 585 (39.7 %) women with mean age of (40.5±9.8) years] who visited these practices for their regular check-ups from November 2010 to June 2012 and were asked to fill in a self-developed questionnaire and score depression on the Zung’s self-rating depression scale. According to the rating, 50 (3.4 %) respondents suffered from depression. In the multivariate analysis, depression correlated with the following independent variables: self-perceived exposure to chronic stress, positive family history of depression, and primary school education.

A THEMATIC ANALYSIS OF DAN BROWN`S NOVEL ANGELS AND DEMONS WITH REFERENCE TO CURRENT AND HISTORICAL CATHOLIC CHURCH POLICY AND THEOLOGY
Nataša Jakob, 2016, diplomsko delo

Opis: I have decided to analyze the novel Angels and Demons written by Dan Brown in my diploma. The work is non-canonical and contains many clichéd themes. However, some non-canonical works deserve much more critical attention than they actually get, and Angels and Demons is one of them. Dan Brown invented an incredible plot with many entanglements and subplots. All of the plots and subplots are resolved in the end. The novel is pure fiction. Brown uses, but distorts, historical events in order to tell his story. In my diploma I argued why there has historically been a conflict between science and faith and I wanted to build a bridge between them, and to show how Brown's novel manipulates this conflict. The novel takes the reader on an incredible journey through Rome and the Vatican. I analyzed the main three characters of the novel, and showed how the priest, Carlo Vantresca, does not respect the Canon of the Holy Scripture. At the end I came to the conclusion that everything in the world is related. Science is born from religion and they can complement one another, as Pope John Paul II stated: “Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish” (John Paul II. A letter To the Reverend George V. Coyne SJ,Director of the Vatican Observatory). Literature, like Brown's, can deal with these themes in many ways, but because Brown's novel sensationalizes them for commercial purposes, it cannot be considered to be serious literature.

WORDS OF LATIN AND FRENCH ORIGIN IN ENGLISH MAGAZINES: THE EXAMPLE OF GLAMOUR
Nastja Ditmajer, 2014, diplomsko delo

Opis: English is more widely spoken and written than any other language. It has become global language and it is used by at least 750 million people (Graddol, Leith, Swann, Rhys and Gillen, 2007). English is also the biggest donor language in the world and it has borrowed many words from other languages. More than fifty percent of all English words are of Latin and French origin (Finkenstaedt and Wolff, 1973). They came into English during the historical events which allowed contacts with different foreign nations and thus their culture and language. Latin and French have been the biggest suppliers of words into English. In the Old English people coined new words together because there was no need to use foreign words. However, later, people had the need to express sophisticated concepts and they found it easier to adopt existing words (Hock and Joseph, 1996). Latin has been a major influence on English. Words from Latin were introduced into Old English and Middle English by the Romans. Words were manly associated to church and its services. The French influence has been around since the Middle Ages. Before the Norman Conquest in 1066, there were contacts between the English and French cultures. After 1066, when William, Duke of Normandy won the English throne, French became the official language of government and the upper classes of Norman nobility. In the 18th and 19th centuries, French was the language of culture, prestige and civilization. In Modern Period, English borrowed from less and less languages and people were more concerned about the situation of English language (Baugh and Cable, 2002). The thesis deals with the of Latin and French borrowings by focusing on their use in contemporary English. The examples for the analysis have been collected from an issue of the English magazine, called Glamour Magazine. Each borrowing is analysed according to the different categories of various vocabulary areas it belongs to. In addition, the meaning, the etymology and word class is provided for each word. The borrowings are then evaluated according to the group, frequency, arrival into English and origin and word class.
Ključne besede: borrowings, etymology, history of English language, Latin and French origin, Glamour Magazine.

Teaching History through English
Andreja Lasnik, 2013, diplomsko delo

Opis: This diploma thesis discusses Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) as a new and innovative educational approach in different countries with the emphasis on the current status of CLIL in Slovenia. However, the main focus of the diploma thesis is to discuss the extent of using English in History lessons and out-of-school activities related to history topics among Year 8 and Year 9 primary school learners. Although CLIL has been part of the national curricula in several countries in Europe, Canada and the United States, it still has not been formally established in Slovenia. Therefore, one of the main purposes of the diploma thesis is to raise awareness about positive effects of CLIL on the learners and teachers and discuss some key suggestions for its implementation in the Slovenian primary schools. The diploma thesis provides different examples of CLIL History lesson plans and considerations for teachers on how History lessons could be taught in English as a foreign language. In the empirical part of the thesis I investigate the use of English in History lessons. This represents the basic question of the research and the starting point for the following sub-questions regarding the manner and the place of the use of English. The survey data was collected by means of a questionnaire, which was distributed to the learners of Year 8 and Year 9 in four Slovenian primary schools (N= 195). The results show that Year 8 and Year 9 learners in rural or urban primary schools rarely use English in History lessons. Age and the location of primary schools in most cases do not have a statistically significant effect on the use of English in History lessons or on the students’ out-of-school activities related to history topics. The respondents use English history websites and watch English history documentaries and films more frequently than read English history books. The students want to use English in History lessons more often.
