Post Memes

My chapter in Post Memes: Seizing the Memes of Production (Punctum Books, 2019) edited by Alfie Bown and Dan Bristow, is called “The Meme is Dead, Long Live the Meme.” My essay aims to kill the Dawkinsian meme by showing that it has been supplanted by the internet meme. It hints at more than that, but that’s the big idea. The book also includes pieces by Dominic Pettman, Angela Nagle, Scott and McKenzie Wark, Yvette Granata, Patricia Reed, and several more, including the editors.
