Hi, Amanda b said that you’re researching memes?
I’m also studying the use of memes in the classroom, how they may inspire critical thinking, effectively increase engagement, and to guide instruction to be taught from the perspective of the user.
I’m looking informal for active discussions from the perspective of the user (meaning, people who are talking about memes in informal conversations- that is just normal conversation and not how they relate to the classroom). A chat room may suffice, but there are always issues of ethical concern when subjects do not know they are being recorded. And the angle that I’m looking for is a bit more serious- like what memes represent in a larger perspective, rather than just being silly :) If you know of an appropriate venue where conversations on memes can be recorded for qualitative research, I’d appreciate any suggestions. I need both a case interview and a conversation between a group of people (and I don’t have to be involved in the conversation). Thank you and if I can be of any help as well, let me know :)
