Memes to Movements (eBook, ePUB)
13,24 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A global exploration of internet memes as agents of pop culture, politics, protest, and propaganda on- and offline, and how they will save or destroy us all. Memes are the street art of the social web. 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. Mina finds parallels, for example, between a photo of Black Lives Matter protestors in Ferguson, Missouri, raising their hands in a gesture of resistance and one from eight thousand miles away, in Hong Kong, of Umbrella Movement activists raising yellow umbrellas as they fight for voting rights. She shows how a viral video of then presidential nominee Donald Trump laid the groundwork for pink pussyhats, a meme come to life as the widely recognized symbol for the international Women's March. Crucially, Mina reveals how, in parts of the world where public dissent is downright dangerous, memes can belie contentious political opinions that would incur drastic consequences if expressed outright. Activists in China evade censorship by critiquing their government with grass mud horse pictures online. Meanwhile, governments and hate groups are also beginning to utilize memes to spread propaganda, xenophobia, and misinformation. Botnets and state-sponsored agents spread them to confuse and distract internet communities. On the long, winding road from innocuous cat photos, internet memes have become a central practice for political contention and civic engagement. Memes to Movements unveils the transformative power of memes, for better and for worse. At a time when our movements are growing more complex and open-ended-when governments are learning to wield the internet as effectively as protestors-Mina brings a fresh and sharply innovative take to the media discourse.

Zone 23
37,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ZONE 23 ... a darkly comic dystopian satire about being human, all-too-human, featuring two of the most endearing Anti-Social anti-heroes that ever rebelled against the forces of Normality. Set in the post-catastrophic future, in a peaceful, prosperous, corporate-controlled society where all dissent and non-conformity has been pathologized, and the human race is being genetically corrected in order to establish everlasting peace on Earth, Zone 23 is a hilarious, heartbreaking affirmation of the anarchic human spirit, and a defiant departure from the norms of both the genre sci-fi and literary novel. C. J. Hopkins is the author of several critically acclaimed and award-winning stage plays, including Horse Country, screwmachine/eyecandy, and The Extremists. His political satire and commentary has appeared on NPR Berlin, in CounterPunch, ColdType, and other journals, and has been translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese. His plays are published by Bloomsbury Publishing (Methuen) and Broadway Play Publishing, Inc., and have been produced in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, and The Netherlands. Critical acclaim for Hopkins' previous work ... 'A brilliant (and hilarious) critique of the emptiness of American life and the meaninglessness of the popular culture that attempts to fill the void' -- Toronto Globe & Mail 'A blistering revelation ... Hopkins' body of work owes a huge debt to the absurdists and so manages to blast beyond the merely political or allegorical to the existential' -- Time Out New York 'Sharp, brilliant, intense, fast-moving, made for the moment we live in' -- The Scotsman, Edinburgh 'A gripping satire, which spills into sinister weirdness.' -- Die Tageszeitung, Berlin

Beautiful Country
21,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A powerful new collection from an award-winning poet. At the heart of Robert Wrigley's new book are the fears that find us at the darkest times and the hopes we rise to each morning. These poems explore that point where the sacred and the profane come together, that place of beauty inside the grotesque and the grotesque inside what is beautiful. The laws of nature, the commandments of capitalism, and the rules of war are transformed into songs of longing, patriotism, and dissent; we are also reminded of the grace residing in the glimpse of a horse under a full moon or the preserved lock of a lover's hair. Elegiac and lyrical, playful and angry, Beautiful Country offers a vision of a country that is unflinching, demanding, and generous.
