If Meaning Is Constructed, What's It Made From? Toward a Cultural Theory of Reading.
Smagorinsky, Peter
Review of Educational Research, v71 n1 p133-69 Spr 2001
Explores the notion of meaning, especially as applied to acts of producing and reading texts. Grounds the analysis in principles of activity theory and cultural semiotics and focuses on the ways in which reading takes place among readers and texts in a culturally mediated, codified, experience characterized as the "transactional zone."
