Get to know the regulations and come to the matinee

Dear colleagues,

after a semester that finally took place without any major epidemiological constraints, we find ourselves in the exam period. However, in addition to the activities usually associated with it, we have two extraordinary events to look forward to.

The first of these may cause some of us some displeasure and a feeling of unnecessary extra bureaucratic work. We should, in fact, during this year gradually become familiar with the important regulations governing the running of our alma mater. We are obliged by law to familiarise our staff with our internal regulations, and if we have decided to pursue the HR Award, which has brought and will undoubtedly bring many positives to our faculty, we must demonstrate that the environment in our faculty is transparent and that everyone is aware of the regulations that govern it. The HR Award team, in collaboration with the Faculty Academic Senate, has done their best to make the whole process as simple, supportive, and consistently helpful as possible.

The second event is an afternoon matinee entitled Faculty to Self. I would like to join Vice-Dean Jastrzembska's invitation for several reasons. The most compelling is certainly what we have gone through against our will in the past two years, and what we want to believe is behind us. We have experienced firsthand how unfortunate it is when we cannot meet in person. So let's take the opportunity to talk - perhaps about familiarisation with the regulations - to delight our senses by eating goodies in the fresh air, but most importantly to be together for a while. I firmly believe that this makes sense.

Dean of MU Faculty of Arts

Launching the app for familiarisation with regulations

It will enable employees to receive updates on changes to internal regulations in a prompt manner and provide them with a place where they can conveniently refer back to any regulations.


Faculty to Self. Afternoon matinee at the beginning of summer

On Monday 27 June we are planning a meeting in the Faculty Courtyard with refreshments, space for informal discussions, and maybe even some entertainment. You can participate in the exact shape of the event.

Librarians recall: 20 years of the Central Library building

The main library building celebrated 20 years since its opening. To mark the occasion, we asked the staff what has changed in the library over the years or what they like to remember.


The Faculty of Arts is proud of its restored Prague Bible

The book was published shortly after the invention of the printing press and contains illuminated initials. It represents the only incunabula in the Faculty collection.

Are you involved in Digital Humanities? Share your experience or take advantage of a consultation

The aim of the special faculty website is to highlight interesting activities in this area. Anyone can contribute an article. If you are preparing a digital collection, archive, database, or another research platform, you can use the consultation or be inspired by the recommendations.

Support for the development of online and blended learning is forthcoming

Several projects from the National Renewal Fund should bring funding for student assistants and teachers, but also for workshops and a mini-conference.


The new ELF installation is upcoming

Before the start of the autumn semester 2022, we will again be regularly transferring courses to the new ELF (Moodle) installation. It will be available from approximately the middle of the summer holidays.

Need to scan books? Use the CIT service

It also includes post-production work such as editing scans or recognizing text and converting it into a format such as MS Word.


Do you use a Multisport card? Experience a top summer

You can visit selected Czech castles and chateaus, take advantage of a wellness package or rent a boat or go to a nature house.
