Communication, Rhetoric and Digital Media


Hello, my name is Tyler DeAtley. I hail from Norfolk, VA originally and am in my first year with CRDM. I enjoy 20th century philosophy, board games, cats, good beer, kaju movies, and whiskey, oh and memes. My research is generally about bringing to bear neo and post Marxist theory on the effects of late capitalism in social media, internet activism, and how the processes of ideology and hegemony operate in the digital era. I also am fond of looking at meme culture and the role meme culture plays in political processes.
