STEM Identity Development for Latinas: The Role of Self- and outside Recognition
Rodriguez, Sarah; Cunningham, Kelly; Jordan, Alec
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v18 n3 p254-272 Jul 2019
This qualitative, phenomenological research study explored how 17 Latina undergraduate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors developed their STEM identities. The study focused on the role that self- and outside recognition as a STEM individual played in the process. Interviews revealed students' self-recognition in many forms. Outside recognition came primarily from STEM peers, faculty members, and family members. Self- and outside recognition were often negotiated through the lens of intersectional identities held by the participants.
