In 2019, I asked my anthropology class with genuine ignorance what a meme was. I felt like a technological dinosaur and the expression on the students’ faces suggested this wasn’t just a feeling. Skip ahead in time three years and attending a University of Auckland Anthropology Teaching Panel, I noticed every presenter used memes to illustrate through metaphor and humour their key points about teaching. Was this an example of the permeation of our digital age into traditional pedagogical spaces? Was it an example of how people like to think about things using different forms—images, text, sounds, and so forth?
