Critical Code Studies Working Group 2016

Announcing the 4th biannual Critical Code Studies Working Group, Jan 11-Feb 7, online. CCSWG is the major online think tank for Critical Code Studies, a hub of dialogue and collaborative inquiry that generates major thrust in the reading of code.  The threads from the first were published in electronic book review, as will the threads from the subsequent CCSWGs.  Past discussions have led to books (10 PRINT), essays, and conference panels. Join us for explorations for the intersections of computer source code and the humanities.

Major Topics:
Annette Vee, Sneha Veeragoudar Harrell, Chris Lindgren: Code Literacy
James Brown, Jr. and Kevin Brock: The Politics and Ethics of Code
David M. Berry: Reading ELIZA

Coordinated by Jeremy Douglass and Mark C. Marino with Viola Lasmana and Ashley Champagne
