About this book

Making an important addition to the highly Britain-dominated field of imperial studies, this book shows that, like numerous other evangelicals operating throughout the colonized world at this time, Danish missionaries invested remarkable resources in the education of different categories children in both India and Denmark.

About the authors

Karen Vallgårda is Assistant Professor of History at the SAXO-Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Reviews

"Vallgårda's book is immensely impressive. It is distinguished by wide and close reading and by innovative methodology. In critical and convincing ways it complicates missionary interventions and the missionary experience." - Reviews in History
