Abstract:My dissertation thesis aims to illuminate how post-imperial Christian-Muslim oppositionality was discursively and practically constituted in a former Balkan dominion of the Ottoman Empire. I expose this process by analyzing the reshaping of individual land ownership during the period in which the Ottoman imperial framework was fractured and superseded by the Bulgarian nation state (1877/78--1908). In my study I criticize the dominant Bulgarian historiographical framework, which depicts the termination of Ottoman rule as the end to the national and social oppression of Bulgarian-speaking Christians. Specifically I disagree with the argument that post-imperial changes in land tenure were responses to the demands of land hungry and disappropriated Bulgarophone Christians. Instead, I argue, the repatriation of Muslim refugees after the Russo-Ottoman War of 1877/78 and official plans for the modernization of agriculture forged two oppositional socio-political categories that were crucial to the development and maintenance of the new capitalist nation state: the Bulgarian-speaking Christian and the Turkish-speaking Muslim landholders. Governments and politicians expected of the first to become a modern citizen while doubting and institutionally obstructing the capabilities of the latter to develop into a loyal, modern, Bulgarian citizen. This thesis then revolves around the relationships that were forged among agricultural land, landholders, and producers, as well as institutions and their representatives in the course of establishing autonomy for the Bulgarian national project of modernity.
