Abstract [en]

Uppsala was the first Swedish university to introduce studies in Modern Bulgarian, in 1892. The initial 50 years of Bulgarian studies can be reconstructed from documents of the first two professors of Slavic languages, Johan August Lundell (1891-1916) and Richard Ekblom (1921-1939), kept in the archives of the Uppsala University Library. Lundell was the initiator and organizer of the subject, while Ekblom was the first Swedish scholar to do research on Bulgarian. The work of Lundell and Ekblom is also placed in a broader context by looking for parallels between the initial phases of academic studies of Modern Bulgarian at Uppsala and at universities in the United States. The path charted by these two pioneers is still reflected in the strong linguistic orientation of Bulgarian studies at Uppsala today.
