The internet has been the space – also known as cyberspace – used for interaction between contemporaneous social subjects. The technological rise, especially after war, personal computers trade and many electronic devices that we have access nowadays allow interactions which were impossible to happen without such technology. In this context, it is possible to recognize the overlapping of different human activity spheres, and because of that, the individual inserted in this technological context encounters communicative needs that have not existed previously. To meet the emerging gaps in that environment, many discursive genres have emerged or got adapted to this new reality. In this sense, this masters dissertation entitled “Memes jurisprudenciais no facebook do STJ: A constituição dialógica de um gênero verbo-visual” regards to a study in which we propose that the jurisprudential meme, authored by the Superior Tribunal de Justiça (STJ), is a discursive genre spread in the social network facebook – produced and circulated in this space – providing dialogic relations between legal discourse materialized through verb-visual language, thus favoring the formation of architectonic genre in question. To accomplish this, we set out to conduct a theoretical and documentary research about some Bakhtinian fundamentals that are relevant to this research, and analyze the dialogical relations found in 4 (four) memes (among 109 collected) displayed at STJ photo albums presented on its facebook page. This choice was made from thematic and imagistic recurrences that refer to discourses on laws which concern relations between parents and children, as well as the use of Star Wars characters that, in a context of imbricated spheres, form the architectonic of this genre. Our hypothesis is that when the jurisprudential meme materializes several discourses through verb-visual language on its statements, establishing dialogical relations between them, it can be considered a discursive genre according to Bakhtin studies. Our theoretical and methodological reflections and analyzes are based on the dialogical conception of language advocated by Bakhtin Circle, specially formed by Bakhtin, Volochínov and Medviedev. Our emphasis is given in dialogism, ideological sign, verbal interaction, discourse genre, as well as discourse, because, according to the dialogical school of thought preconized by Bakhtin Circle, is from the dialogical relations allowed by the relatively stable statements that form the discursive genres that the social subject has access to the discourses and to the language, interacting with himself, with others and with the world around them, forming himself continuously.
