I have a similar interest.
I am interested in finding out if any has come across research on the community coalition (CC) as a milieu for fostering transformative learning (TL). While there are is literature on TL in the 'traditional' classroom, communities of practice, T groups etc., I have not beem able to find any on the community coalition. Anecdotally (from comments of coalition members a- verbally or included in reports they send to my office) I am hearing that some members are experiencing perspective transformation as a result of their participation in a CC. I am in the process of preparing a dissertation proposal to explore this empirically. I would love to hear from anyone in this area who has knowledge of the community coalition and transformative learning.
By the way, the coalitions I am studying are those that are addressing racial/ethnic health disparities.
