Description: First coined as a term to identify the most basic units of culture, memes have brought about a new mode of communication that has revolutionized the way we relate to each other. But do memes heal or harm our society, our culture, and our perception of the world? This course aims to explore the powerful nature of memes and how the increasing reliance on internet culture informs our society at large. We will discuss memes as a communication tool through sociological, philosophical, and critical discussions. By the end of the course, students will be equipped to thoughtfully examine this technique of communication that the digital age has created. Students of all disciplines and meme expertise are welcome to join our exploration of the internet culture we exist in.
