Gamer Joker / Gamers Rise Up / We Live in a Society


Gamer Joker, also known as Gamers Rise Up and We Live in a Society, is an image macro series featuring depictions of the DC Comics supervillain Joker accompanied by intentionally edgy or cringeworthy captions. The memes typically praise video game enthusiasts and criticize women named Veronica who friendzone them in favor of dating “jocks”. Examples of the meme are frequently submitted to the Gang Weed Facebook page.


In early April 2015, an image macro of the Joker with the caption “When the nice guy loses his patiance (sic) / the devil shivers” was submitted to 9gag, where it gathered upwards of 38,600 points and 520 comments over the next three years.

American Society for Ethnohistory

As ASE president and one of the conference organizers for the upcoming conference in Durham, I am writing to let you know that, due to COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the conference until Fall of 2021. While the specific dates are still to be determined, the conference will take place in the same hotel and will once again be sponsored by Duke University and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Those who have submitted proposed papers and panels for this year’s conference will receive a separate e-mail with more information. We look forward to welcoming you here for a great conference and to showcase for you the work that we are doing at our universities and in the community at large. But we must do so at a time of less uncertainty—when it is safe for everybody to travel and when you have travel funds to do so.

The New Society of Organizations

Every few hundred years throughout Western history, a sharp transformation has occurred. In a matter of decades, society altogether rearranges itself—its world view, its basic values, its social and political structures, its arts, its key institutions. Fifty years later a new world exists. And the people born into that world cannot even imagine the world in which their grandparents lived and into which their own parents were born.

Our age is such a period of transformation. Only this time the transformation is not confined to Western society and Western history. Indeed, one of the fundamental changes is that there is no longer a “Western” history or a “Western” civilization. There is only world history and world civilization.

Whether this transformation began with the emergence of the first non-Western country, Japan, as a great economic power or with the first computer—that is, with information—is moot. My own candidate would be the
