[Xmca-l] Re: About 「hope 」 in socio-cultural research



JingJing,
You should check out Lois Holzman's work (Vygotsky at Work and Play would
be a very good place for you to start). She is working with a population in
New York City that is roughly equivalent to the population that you are
researching.

I suspect that she might shy away from the word "hope" for fear that hope
itself can be an empty thing (as in a palliative "false hope"). I think she
would probably prefer to speak of something like "possibilities of
becoming".  But I'd rather hear from her on this matter since I'm just
making this up in the hope that she bring some of her wisdom to this thread.
