Mette Mortensen and Christina Neumayer have co-edited a special issue on “The Playful Politics of Memes” published in Information, Communication & Society.  Spreading across digital platforms, memes confirm, contest and challenge political power and hierarchies. They disrupt and reimagine politics in humorous ways.
