Images of Dreams and Hopes

Hmong and Yao Primary Students in Northern Thailand
Part of the Transgressions: Cultural Studies and Education book series (TRANS, volume 107)


A great deal of discourse in visual research demonstrates interest in professionally produced images which come from classical or modern arts, architecture, and the media including comic strips, cartoons, movies, photography, and artefacts. Most of such works are created by professional artists, designers, film-makers, cartoonists, photographers, and architects; and are accessible from official channels such as in museums, archives, the Internet, public library books and private collections.
