Poster #24 -- What Does It Meme?: Visual Literacy Programming in the Library Through the Language of Memes

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This poster will describe a library outreach and instruction program centered around memes and visual literacy at UNC Greensboro. The program, called Uplifting Memes, will run during the 2019-2020 academic year and feature interactive workshops, guest lectures, and a student art contest to address issues such as understanding information ethics on social media (including fair use of copyrighted materials, Creative Commons, and the public domain); engaging in creativity, communication, and digital rhetoric with images and other visual media; and examining issues of virality, propaganda, and hate speech in internet communications. The poster will detail the planning process, provide examples of workshop curricula, and provide preliminary assessment data from the program.
