Little lights in a big world: missionary children and transnational religious migration

Briscoe, Hannah (2018) Little lights in a big world: missionary children and transnational religious migration. In: University of Birmingham Graduate School Research Poster Conference 2018, 13th June 2018, University of Birmingham. (Unpublished)



They traversed continents, grew up bilingual, experienced family separations, were socially mobile, and crossed racial and cultural barriers; yet children of missionaries are seldom mentioned in general or religious histories. This project moves children's experience centre-stage to recover these marginalized voices through an interdisciplinary approach that includes history, anthropology, and human geography. Through archival research and oral history, it will increase our understanding of these global actors praised as 'great humanitarians' by some and accused as 'cultural imperialists' by others - and explore the role of children as cultural mediators with their own perspectives that intersect with issues of migration, race, culture, politics and faith.
