Abstract: Populism typically encompassed disciplines of political sciences and democracies. The inroads made by populism into other domains of knowledge brings to the center the social dimensions of New Populism as integral parts of curricula, pedagogy, and research in all disciplines. Drawing from Dawkins proposition of Meme as a cultural replicator, the paper explores the social processes where memes undergo variations and mutations as they diffuse through different human hosts in social networks. The interconnection of meme, social networks, power structures, and societal outcomes redefines the scope of education and research across domains.
