NEW DOCUMENTARIES: Visual Culture as Pedagogy and Scholarship

Currently, Michael Hayes’ research focuses on issues related to media and visual culture as forms of pedagogy. In particular he is developing a perspective on visual culture, media and education in a global society. He has been making documentary films on topics of social concern in a local and global context, including “My Town,” an examination of a controversy in Moscow, Idaho that is relevant to national “culture wars,” “With Hands Hearts and Bells,” a film on the Sacred Heart Mission Indian boarding school on the Coeur d’Alene reservation.
Michael Hayes is a Professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning at Washington State University.
