    I can't help you with academics, but I'd love to hear about some of the methods you used to spread memes through advertising.

      Greetings fellow list members,

    I have been following this list for a short time and have enjoyed the topics and banter. I have read almost all of the books on the subject of memetics and a good 1/2 dozen of Dawkins' books as well but alas I still have a quandary.

    I hold a MS in Graphic Media, which is equal to being the devil of marketing. So I have been using memes for many years now, maybe you've seen some of my stuff "Hanes Her Way", Victoria's Secret direct mailing and various other instruments of deception. I am retired now, and plan to go back to school for...

    Well, now you see my quandary. I live in Chicago and want to study memetics but I feel sure that there is not a a program for this so I humbly ask for your input on what direction I should take. I am leaning towards a Masters in Biology with a minor in Sociology.

    I thank you all in advance and look forward to your responses.

    William T Shehan IV
