Memes, Society, and Culture

About this Training

This training is an essential examination of the impact that memes have on modern society and digital culture. We will begin with some of the definitions that help ground this newer model of civic engagement. An overview will be provided to explain how memes are used as a form of social interaction within online communities and how they are transmitted beyond the Internet. Examples of the various forms of memetic engagement will be shown throughout the presentation, concluding in a brief point of reflection of how this knowledge helps psychology professionals develop better practices in a therapeutic setting regarding memetic communication.
