The biennial Critical Code Studies Working Group is a multi-week intensive online discussion forum designed to develop the methods and approaches of CCS.   These working groups are the principal laboratories for these approaches.

In addition to weekly plenary sessions, the working group invites participants to post snippets of code for the group to analyze.

Topics this year include Feminist AI and Indigenous Programming.  Thread leaders include: Christine Meinders (of Feminist AI), Sarah Ciston, Catherine Griffiths, Jon Corbett,  Outi Laiti, Jason Lewis, and Daniel Temkin.  The Working Group will be coordinated by Mark Marino, Jeremy Douglass, and Zachary Mann.

The Critical Code Studies Working Group is sponsored by The Humanities and Critical Code Studies Lab (HaCCS Lab) of USC and the Digital Arts and Humanities Commons (DAHC) of UC Santa Barbara.
