What Kind of Literacy? Reflections on the Experiences of Migrant Domestic Workers Negotiating Learning in London
North, Amy
European Education, v49 n2-3 p184-200 2017
This article is concerned with the literacy learning experiences of a group of female migrant domestic workers from Nepal and India who participated in weekly literacy support sessions at the Migrant Resource Centre in London. The article draws on qualitative research to explore the women's engagement with different forms of learning, and considers how this was affected by the transnational nature of their lives and the way they navigate and negotiate identities across different contexts.
