Notes

Abstract: This chapter examines the elements of visual grammar used in advertising media and postmodern art that is now used to create powerful memes. These visual elements are examined through the lenses of visual and media literacy to reveal why they are successful and have power over us. In addition, the chapter includes how to teach about memes, interpretative and psychological challenges involved in teaching about memes, a possible solution in the fight against disinformation and fake news, and a learning activity that utilizes the ACRL frames of Information Creation as a Process, Authority is Constructed and Contextual, and Research as Inquiry.
