Studying the patterns, behaviours and social context of meme culture.
Condescending Wonka? Triumph Kid? Helpful Mallard? If none of these words make any sense to you than odds are you're not too familiar with memes. This course focuses on the Internet's sense of humor and examines everything from troll behaviour and the spread of viral videos to the creation and tracking of new memes and the impact of GIFs on our cultural understanding of emotions. This course is a building block to understanding the marketing landscape of tomorrow, and yes - it's also all about cats and all about the Lulz.
