Collaborative Seeing

The project is meant to examine the shaping role of gender, race and immigrant status in how thirty-four children represent themselves and their perspectives on immigration, social and cultural differences, and family-school relationships through photography and video. The follow-up study follows a sub-sample of twenty-two of these young people from ages 10-18 and traces the multiple meanings they attach to their images over time as a window on their changing identities, desires, aspirations and educational trajectories.
