Event Outline

David Tan draws on the fascinating writings of Mikhail Bakhtin on the medieval carnival and the laughing culture of the Renaissance to postulate that one may view the social media environment as a Bakhtinian digital carnivalesque, where creative practices can be perceived as modes of expression that present a resistance to authority. Within this environment, internet memes present a feast of challenges to exceptions and limitations in copyright law.
