A short presentation of yourself: 
My dissertation theme is “traditional agriculture as cultural heritage”. In the process of industrialisation many of the small scale, extensive and seasonal practices and their intertwined complexes became extinct and nowadays in search for the new-purpose land-use management we turn back to them. Agricultural management of trees (so called agroforestry) in the Czech Republic is one of these practices. The general aim of my research is to to map and describe the currently forgotten techniques of agroforestry known in Czechia in 19th century as well as discuss the dynamic and actors in the forgetting of this extensive traditional management during the industrialization. That would allow the international comparison of Czech situation with especially geographically most close (German, Polish, Hungarian, Austrian) etnographic paralella and eventually the theoretical and practical advocacy of conservation or restoration of these plots and their management in Czechia.
