dc.description.abstractThe purpose of my study was to document the educational experiences of adult mexicana12 immigrants and their convivencia with others in public spaces. This study consequently addressed the interdisciplinary gap between adult education and Chicana feminist epistemology. I collected data through a convivencia testimonial and one-on-one interviews. Data analysis was done by inductively coding the transcripts into a collective story extrapolated from the themes found. I sought the opinions and thoughts of my findings with my participants to check for trustworthiness. The outcome helped gain a deeper understanding of adult immigrant women’s experiences learning English in a community-based adult education program and its impact on their gendered identity.
