Description

As I worked with the cases that were presented in Chapters 5 to 8, I discovered how diverse and complex these young women’s individual journeys actually were. Weaving together data from various sources deepened my understanding of the challenges they faced and the choices they made as they crossed languages and cultures. This reiterative process sensitized me to the ways in which their linguistic practices were shaped by the constraints of their sociocultural, sociopolitical context. The longitudinal nature of my study also heightened my awareness of how contradictory, relational, and dynamic their identities were as each woman’s sense of self shifted over historical time and space.
