"Entertainment and Education" in non-academic journals

Dear colleagues,

I am working on intellectual reform movements in Habsburg Bosnia. In the nineteenth century, many journals in the Western Balkans had the slogan "zabava i pouka" - Entertainment and Education/Instruction. It usually meant that the journal would have mostly literary pieces but also philosophical/moralistic articles. I am trying to understand whether this formula and general concept were known in the Ottoman Empire, in Russia, and in the West. I'd be happy for any references (both primary and secondary).

Thank you,

Orel Beilinson
