  • Memes to Movements

    Evenings, Talks & Lectures, and part of Thursday Nights

    Feb 21

    Due to a change in schedule, we are postponing this program until a later date. Stay tuned!

    7—8 PM

    Samsung Hall

    Cultural critic Samantha Culp joins technologist and author An Xiao Mina to discuss her new book, “Memes to Movements.” The book presents a global exploration of internet memes as agents of pop culture, politics, protest and propaganda, both on- and offline, and how they will save or destroy us all. At a time when sociopolitical movements are growing more complex and open-ended — and when governments are learning to wield the internet as effectively as protestors — Mina brings a fresh, innovative take to the media discourse.  

    A book signing immediately follows the program. Copies of “Memes to Movements” will be available for purchase at the museum store.
