OILab Workshop Registration Form

Meme War Workshop - OILab
12th of February 2018, 10:00-16:00

Based on a pedagogy developed over the course of several graduate new media seminars at the University of Amsterdam, this workshop introduces tools and techniques developed by researchers affiliated with OILab and Digital Methods Initiative for studying what we refer to as 'the deep vernacular web' of anonymous and pseudonymous web forums. In the course of the workshop participants will have the opportunity to contribute to some basic original research specifically focussing on 4chan and on Reddit. Together we will look at how online subcultures use in-group slang as well as 'ironic' memes as a means by which constitute themselves as issue publics, focussing in particular on how it is that they imagine their antagonists as well as themselves as political collectives.

To register your interest in attending the OILab workshop, please enter your details below. Attendance is limited to 30 participants and a waiting list.

This event is supported by the ESRC Doctoral Training Centre
