Resumo: O artigo busca compreender o fenômeno dos memes no contexto da cibercultura, principalmente a partir da emergência da Web 2.0. O campo empírico da pesquisa partiu da imersão dos autores nas redes sociais da internet. Assim, narrativas e imagens dialogam neste artigo com um repertório teórico multirreferencial, a exemplo de: pesquisas com os cotidianos, cibercultura e semiótica, educação e cibercultura, filosofia entre outros. Os achados apresentados ao longo do texto nos convidam a refletir sobre os potenciais das tecnologias digitais em rede e a autoria coletiva em nosso tempo. Os memes são, também, formas de narrativas do cotidiano que, por meio do humor, permitem aos praticantes culturais se autorizarem de forma intertextual e imagética. Esse fenômeno é um convite aos educadores e educadoras na autoria de seus atos de currículo. Abstract: This article discusses the phenomenon of Internet memes in cyberculture era. Memes are types of intertextual and imagistic narratives about everyday life that enable the authorship of cultural practitioners. The research data are narratives and images taken from the internet social networks. We analyzed data taking into account the multi-referential approach, as set out in: research with school quotidian, semiotics and cyberculture, education and cyberculture, philosophy, and others. The research findings are related to the potential of digital networks and collective authorship in the contemporary world. We concluded that Internet memes are a language to be worked in curriculum acts.
