Summary: "Using Helène Cixous' notion of 'l'ecriture feminine' both as an analogy for transformational learning and as an investigative tool, Hoult explores why some adult learners are able to survive and thrive in the education system, despite facing significantly more challenges than the average student. These challenges include personal trauma, the lack of capital in every sense, or learners' own refusal to play by the rules of the academy. "-- Provided by publisher.
