Presentation of Marc-Antoine Jullien's Work in Bulgarian Comparative Education Textbooks
Genova, Teodora; Popov, Nikolay
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (14th, Sofia, Bulgaria, Jun 14-17, 2016)
This paper is dedicated to Marc-Antoine Jullien's bicentennial work, which first appeared as a series of three articles under the main title "Éducation comparée" with a subtitle "Esquisse et vues préliminaires d'un ouvrage sur l'éducation comparée" published in "Journal d'éducation" from October 1816 to March 1817 and also published as a booklet entitled "Esquisse et vues préliminaires d'un ouvrage sur l'éducation comparée" in Paris in 1817. These publications lay the foundations of systematic comparative studies of education which give ground Marc-Antoine Jullien de Paris (1775-1848) to be undisputedly regarded as founding "Father of Comparative Education". Jullien de Paris is recognized as the first to use the term comparative education (Crossley & Watson, 2009), set out a method for comparison (Epstein, 1994) and one of the very earliest exponents of systematic international inquiry in education (Phillips & Schweisfurth, 2014). It was thanks to Jullien that the science of education became comparative (Gautherin, 1993). In this respect, the aim of this short paper is to explore how Jullien's work and contribution is presented in Bulgarian comparative education textbooks published between 1969 and 2014. Five systematic Bulgarian comparative education textbooks have been included in the present study and the findings show that Jullien's work and contribution appear on the pages of all of them, receive respectful attention and prove not to be long forgotten.
