Fathers (not only) at the Childbirth

PhDr. Iva Šmídová, Ph.D.

The project, aimed at current transformations and new varieties of paternity in the Czech Republic will be done in the form of empiric research which will learn about the ideas of parenthood of the parents-to-be and will confront them with the realization of this role several months after the child is born. The main analytical purpose is to handle the transformation or the steadiness of gender roles after the birth of the first child. The found answers of everyday social behaviour will support the influence of social structure and will contribute to the definition and understanding of mechanisms that (do not) reproduce gender structure of society in the system of man's dominance.
