This talk maps Mary Sumner’s activism against geographical locations in her life. It explores her Shropshire childhood, early married life at Farnham Castle, parochial philanthropy at Old Alresford and a visit to the Holy Land, to place Mary’s ideas on motherhood, marriage and the education of children in relation to contemporary issues in religion, society and education.

Dr Sue Anderson-Faithful is the author of Mary Sumner, Mission, Education and Motherhood: thinking a life with Bourdieu. Sue is a lecturer in the Faculty of Education at the University of Winchester .
