The thesis focuses on the reforms in the field of public education in Finland and Russia in the landmark period of 1850-1870s. Aiming to сover the historiographical gap in the Finnish and the Russian historiographies, it situates the project of Uno Cygnaeus, ‘‘the father of the Finnish national school’’, in the context of Russian intellectual environment of the time and explores the circulation of pedagogical ideas. The work draws upon previously unexplored sources, including the discussion of his project in the Russian media, and introduces the counter-projects of the leading Russian educationalists. The thesis thus enriches and the same time complexifies the history of imperial national policy.
