Chapter: 8. Conclusion to Part Two—Grey Boxes, Context, and Content

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.27840


Chapter Eight is a prelude to Part Three’s explanation of discourse frameworks. Grey boxes mobilize resources in settings as components of process narratives. Analysis of interpretation activities related to the creation and use of grey boxes clarifies concepts presented by explanations of reasoning based on mental models and cognitive schemata. For example, the interpretation activities related to producing and applying grey boxes show that ‘context’ is not simply a situational link between material or mental artifacts, but involves interpretations of information resources embedded in and retrievable through grey boxes and process narratives.
