This roundtable discussion features the prize-winning student meme creators of the recent “What Does America ‘Meme' Contest” Gabrielle Mills, Alejandro Gili-Olivares, Francesco Amore, Julie Guevara, Veronica Lisboa along with Professors Nicole Archer and Pablo Tinio.
In the video the five finalists “schooled” professors and audience members about the power and importance of memes in American culture today. In the participatory analytical space of this event, the students “deconstructed” their work and discussed how the recently established visual language of memes has created new forms of dialogue while subverting traditional means of communication. They, along with Montclair State University faculty and staff and the public, collectively contextualized and reflected on the disruptive communicative force played by memes in the United States today.
