Nation-Building, Patriotism, and Women’s Citizenship: Bulgaria in Southeastern Europe
This chapter presents the first outline of the general development of girls’ secondary education in Bulgaria from the early nineteenth century to the 1940s. It includes sections on sources and historiography, discourses on education in the Southeastern European states and on women’s education in particular, and scarce empirical data. The chapter places the Bulgarian case within the Southeastern European context and illustrates how nation-building intersected with the development of girls’ education.
