Because I am the discussion leader for this article, I don't want to go too in depth with my online question because I have several prepared for class. :) But here's one to throw out there that we can continue discussing tomorrow:
Can anyone explain why meaning structures would cause asymmetry (or improper decoding) in Hall's communication model? In other words, why would miscommunication occur between two people and not between others? It makes sense intuitively in considering positionality, but I'm interested to see if we can really describe why people could completely misunderstand something if they speak the same language.
This should be an interesting discussion because this article was pretty dense!
See you all tomorrow!
