The current study is a sketch of the historical transformations of disability discourses in modem Bulgarian history - from the Liberation of Bulgaria in 1878 to the present day. It is a product of the application of the method of Foucauldian discourse analysis to a diverse collection of textual material produced during the researched period. The thesis presents an analysis of the social constructions of disability and disabled people in Bulgarian society and demonstrates that changes in dominant disability discourses were closely related to the socio-political transformations that followed the major transitions in modern Bulgarian history.
