Critical Code Studies Working Group: In Review

During the past month, I've had the pleasure of coordinating the Critical Code Studies Working Group (CCSWG) that Mark Marino and Jeremy Douglass organized. Sponsored by the HaCCS Lab (of which HASTAC is an affiliate), the conversations in all of the discussion threads have been really amazing and exciting -- as of March 20, 2014, the WG has a total of 97 participants, and the WG's 28 discussion threads have had over 12,000 page views! Consider these highlights an overview of some of the major ideas explored, but in no way do they exhaustively capture the full depth and richness of the discussions. I'll update this page with Week 3 & 4 higlights as they are completed, but in the meantime, here are highlights from Week 1 & 2, reblogged from the HaCCS Lab website:


Week 1: "Exploratory Programming" (led by Nick Montfort):

Week 2: "Feminist Code" (led by Arielle Schlesinger with Jacqueline Wernimont and Ben Wiedermann as discussants): (the original conversation on feminist programming language happened here on HASTAC!)

Week 3: "PostColonial CritCode: Coding in Global Englishes" (led by Roopika Risam, Adeline Koh, and Amit Ray) :: highlights forthcoming ::

Week 4: "ACLS Workbench Collaborative Reading" :: highlights forthcoming ::


CCSWG is sponsored by the Humanities and Critical Code Studies (HaCCS) Lab at University of Southern California. Twitter: @haccs. Organized by Mark Marino and Jeremy Douglass. Coordinated by Viola Lasmana.
