Abstract

Drawing on critical geography literature and the concept of place, this paper analyzes interpersonal problems among learners in three family literacy programs. The findings suggest that interpersonal tensions cannot be reduced to individual factors such as personality. Rather, distinctive spatial and community contexts powerfully shape learners’ identities and interpersonal relations.

Rather, distinctive spatial and community contexts powerfully shape learners’ identities and interpersonal relations.
