Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with the battles among, and the interactions of the statements coming out of different disciplinary fields – literature, historiography, and sociology – in the course of interpreting the April uprising (1876) against the Ottoman rule in Bulgaria. The analysis shows that the April uprising happened to be a case to actively and deliberately emancipate the fields in late nineteenth century – early twentieth century in Bulgaria. Yet this emancipation did not occur in a profound way, as both disciplinary statements and separate discourses of historiography and sociology happened to be deeply infected by the statements of late nineteen-century Bulgarian literature.
