Volume 3, Number 2
current volume is the first in a series of two issues exploring the
idea of semiotic consciousness. It is an outgrowth of an interactive
symposium conducted at the annual meeting of AERA in 2001. Editor,
François Tochon, states in his introductory chapter:
objective of this issue is to illustrate the active semiotics of
consciousness, that is, the meaning-making processes that
support the construction of reality in day-to-day learning,
teaching, and educational environments....It illustrates how, in
education, signs can become consciously active and get symbolic
power, creating anomalies in the usual course of learning and
teaching, and educational events.
from a broad range of disciplines explore semiotic consciousness
from within those disciplines. The issue ends with a book review
of Research in International Education: Experience, Theory, and
Practice by Liora Bresler and Alexander Ardichvili.
