Memes to Movements: How the World's Most Viral ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A global exploration of the Internet meme as an agent of pop culture, politics, protest, and propaganda on and offline and how they will save or destroy us all.Internet memes are one of today's most unexpectedly potent and creative forms, born of digital culture and - more and more - in dialogue with real life. A photo of protesters, for example, in Ferguson, Missouri, raising their hands in a gesture of resistance gets replicated 8,000 miles away in Hong Kong, where dissidents are fighting for voting rights. Or a viral video of a presidential candidate elect can become the impetus for an international march of women in pink "pussy hats", itself a viral meme come to life. In the long, winding road from Grumpy Cat photos, Internet memes have become a central concept of modern protest.Using social media-driven movements as her guide, technologist and digital media scholar An Xiao Mina unpacks the mechanics of memes and how they operate to reinforce, amplify, and shape today's politics. She finds that the "silly" stuff of meme culture - the photo remixes, the selfies, the YouTube songs, and the pun-tastic hashtags - are fundamentally intertwined with how we find and affirm one another, direct attention to human rights and social justice issues, build narratives, and make culture. Crucially, she reveals how in parts of the world where public dissension is downright dangerous, memes can belie contentious political opinions that would incur drastic consequences if expressed outright. And further, she examines the future of Internet memes as tools in both antiauthoritarian progressive circles and government propaganda.Memes to Movements unveils the transformative power of memes, for better and worse. In a time when our movements are growing more complex and open-ended, Mina brings a fresh and sharply innovative take on the media discourse. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erin Bennett.

The Belinda Chronicles (eBook, ePUB)
6,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Linda Seidel's lightly fictionalized memoir lets readers feel what it's like for a naturally skeptical, yet persistently naïve, older woman to watch her parents age out of life, to think about the epiphanies they enable her to have, and to reflect on the lives of "elders" she didn't appreciate until she'd worn through some years herself. The elders whose stories Seidel reconstructs were quintessentially American--meaning complex, subtle and challenging--whether it's a "shell shocked" grandfather who immigrated to Pennsylvania almost a century ago after fighting for Germany in a World War, or a mother who was secretly spitting out her pills at the "Lucky Stroke Nursing Home" in Missouri in 2018.The Chronicles are organized organically, starting with a Prologue about Belinda's "search for a genre." The genre which she discovers is a series of vignettes, gently shaped and pruned so that readers can study them individually, as smaller sets, and cumulatively. Thus, for example, the initial series of nine short pieces is gathered under the title "Women and Mothers." It includes stories about her mother's childhood ("Trudi's Parents"), her grandmother's old age ("Lotte"), and several about her mother Trudi's last months, branching into dead-on accurate sketches of contemporary nursing home life and workers ("Marty the Nurse"). The final vignette of "Women and Mothers" (titled "Wasting Time: Love and Class") involves reflections on a pair of potential marriages which didn't happen-reflections which lead naturally to a new, two-part section titled "Belinda Reflects."The seven vignettes gathered next, "Men and Fathers," offer detailed glimpses into the lives of a prosperous, sometimes pompous, great-grandfather, his son the charming, womanizing (?) "Lyle," and especially his grandson, "Leonard," the professional musician and music teacher whose slow decline into dementia eventually brought him to the "Lucky Stroke," near Belinda and his ex-wife, "Trudi." In these pieces, as Belinda later reflects, she's "portraying them not at their best but at ... their most human."Our memoirist's piquant reflections nourish all her stories as surely as sap does a tree. In the four sets of stories called "Belinda Reflects," which alternate with sets labeled "Orphans" or "Weddings and Funerals," the musings are more like rainfall or manna. The Belinda Chronicles are rooted in Seidel's family history, factual enough to be a memoir though the names have been changed. They're enriched by the author's 21st century awareness of patriarchy, feminism, class biases, and anti-immigrant prejudice. One further tribute to Belinda's roots comes in the center of the book, where, just after a chapter titled "Peonies," Seidel has slipped in seven family photos, the oldest taken about 1910, the newest including herself as a toddler. The family tree uses Chronicles pseudonyms, but the dates are accurate.In summary, we quote from the "Acknowledgements" section which ends the book: "[I] regard my family's collective memories and stories as legacies, a kind of inheritance exploited and treasured by the Belinda character in these vignettes.... My greatest debt is to my elders, whose stories I have appropriated and who might feel, alternately, outraged and honored on every page, were they alive to read me."
