Political and Journalistic Activities of František Sís (1914–1919)
Languages of publication
The current paper aims at exploring the political and journalistic activities of František Sís during the First World War. In this study I focus on several issues. First, I will sketch, in brief, the cooperation between František Sís and his younger brother Vladimir Sís at the beginning of WWI. Secondly, I am going to explore the role of F. Sís in the establishing of the politico-intellectual circle and journal Národ (Nation). Needless to say, my intention is to demonstrate, through analysis of F. Sís’ publications in this journal that these served as an “intellectual weapon” against the so-called “activist” politicians, grouped around the Czech Alliance and National Committee. Further, I will concentrate on investigating the role of F. Sís in forming the new political party, Czech Constitutional Law Democracy in 1917–1918. Then, I will tackle the issue of political cooperation between the so-called Kramář circle on the one side, and other Slav nations, such as the Poles and Yugoslavs, on the other, in 1918. Last but not least, I will explore František Sís’ concept of postwar Czechoslovakia and his vision of Slav solidarity.
