Authorship & Readership

From questions of theory, it is next important to consider the participants in the interaction and what they add to the context. To understand this in a communication or social construction setting, read chapters 2 & 3 in the Nealon & Searls Giroux work below. The focus is on authorship and authority and then the role of the reader or receiver and initial transcriber of meaning. We will look at an example of these concepts in action beyond the reading. The following resources are University of Iowa library resources.
