|Title:||Learning by Going: Transformative Learning through Long-term Independent Travel||Authors:||Phillips, Birgit||Issue Date:||2019||Publisher:||Wiesbaden: Springer VS||Abstract:||Birgit Phillips explores the concept of transformative travel as it pertains to long-term independent travelers and offers a broad philosophical understanding of the complex socio-cultural processes involved in identity negotiation. She examines both the elements that contribute to the transformation of values and identities and the mechanisms by which this transformation occurs. By deploying a pluralistic, reflexive, interpretive research approach, Phillips foregrounds the personal experiences of the individual study participants and the meanings they attach to their travel experiences. In addition, since the study spanned over 14 years, the author is able to provide a wide-ranging picture of the complete travel experience, from initial motivations to post-travel reintegration as well as the long-term effects on traveler values and identities.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.11790/1170||ISBN:||978-3658257729||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-658-25773-6||Rights:||info:eu-repo/semantics/closedAccess|
