    There was an issue of Biology and Philosophy last year that reviewed Extended Phenotype in retrospect. It icluded papers by Dawkins, Jablonka and a really neat paper by J. Scott Turner on some nice examples of EPs.

    The Jablonka paper has some relevant discussion of memes as "variations in non-symbolic patterns of behavior, and variation in symbolic patterns of behavior".
