About the Book:

A Certain Gesture: Evnine’s Batman Meme Project and Its Parerga! takes the form of commentaries on memes made with the image of Batman slapping Robin. It is a genre-defying book that mixes discussions of philosophy, psychoanalysis, Judaism, language, and representation with self-writing, producing a distinctive type of autotheory. The book is cerebral, playful, social, and intensely personal. It contains philosophy, including original philosophical research, but also explores new ways of doing and thinking about philosophy.
