COM 200 Communication Theory Prof. Steven Lemley Spring 2008 1/24/08: Coordinated Management of Meaning—Pearce and Cronen - a concept which makes a difference in the world - about how YOUR personal identity and your view of reality is effected and altered by interaction - people can satisfactorily coordinate our lives so we can live in the world without necessarily agreeing on every detail of the way we see things - not about getting people to agree with you, but rather how you move forward in a community and in the world when there is profound disagreement on an issue - “but what if”… “we can’t get meanings to join”… “we can get images to overlap”… etc. - finding ways to act together when we disagree about truth -coordination may not be permanent, may not be possible on all issues - it can be a second line of offense when we can’t get agreement -Social Constructionists - A “rules” theory - the rules that emerge as you are socialized that tell you what is appropriate in a given situation
