#SMWLDN in Rewind: What's Happening to the Memesphere?


What's Happening to the Memesphere, hosted by Jam's Kate Miltner (@katemiltner) took place on Monday 24th September at the Sport, Entertainment & Culture Hub at Engine. Catch up with the livestream below.

Memes used to be the province of an internet subculture based around sites and forums like 4chan and Something Awful. But over the past few years, memes have gone from “inside jokes your friends don’t get” to a key element of cultural discourse and a part of the mainstream news cycle. During the session, Kate Miltner discussed how the memesphere has evolved, where it might be going and what these changes mean for the online cultural landscape.
