Abstract:Over the last two decades, many women who were former political prisoners have emigrated from Iran to Canada. These women do not want their experiences to be forgotten but often language barriers prevent them from telling their stories. This qualitative investigation uses feminist ethnography (including life history) and arts-informed research to explore new approaches to the language learning process. Over a four month period, women were interviewed, their interviews transcribed and their written narrative became an instructive text for English language acquisition. Interviews were accompanied by art workshops where women could express their stories in different forms. The social and educational implications of this research lie in its potential to give voice to an invisible group and, on a practical level, providing a potential new approach to second language acquisition. Findings also contribute on the level of theory, calling for the recognition of political motivation for language acquisition.
