Passing an entire hash to an action

Is it possible to pass the entire contents of a hash to an action via
link_to_remote?

I know that when you want to pass a value you say link_to_remote(“link
name”, :url => {:action=>“some action”, :someName => someVal} )

This works for when you want to pass strings but I want to be able to
pass a reference to a list of models that is stored in a hash to the
action in the controller. Is this possible?

You’d have to either serialize the hash as a string that can be
posted by the client, or save the hash in a session key and post
back the key so the hash can be retrieved.
