Whatever you want to say, there’s a meme for that. But are memes more than just funny images and sarcastic text? Explore this and other elements of memes in this three day mini course.
In Spring 2019, Professor Mark Sample from Digital Studies worked with the Digital Learning team to create a Davidson Now course about memes. How do memes circulate? Why do memes circulate? What does it mean to express your feelings, attitudes, and even politics through memes? This three day mini course introduces participants to the history of GIFs and memes, surveys the use and abuse of memes, and asks them to make your own memes.
