Transformative Learning and Concepts of the Self: Insights from Immigrant and Intercultural Journeys
Lange, Elizabeth
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v34 n6 p623-642 2015
This article examines Canadian immigrant and intercultural learning as an insightful context for examining transformative learning. Theories of intercultural communication are explored, particularly the concept of transculturality and Bhabha's concept of "Third Space". Various concepts of the self are also compared, particularly two conceptions implicit in theories of transformative learning, the autonomous self and the relational self. Finally, three empirical studies from Canada are reviewed and findings discussed regarding the transformative process of "learning into transculturality" as well as the "relational self" and "relational knowing" in transformative learning.
