I’m doing a dissertation that seeks to understand the relationship between ideology and internet culture. The ‘case studies’ for my empirical research will be internet memes.
How does the community who processes confirmation, deadpooling, editing organise/run itself? Is it organised like any wikia, where any user can contribute and anyone/mods edit and so forth? Or is it more centralised?
Anyone know of any academic papers that may help me with my topic?
Sorry if this is in the wrong subforum. Thanks.
