Launching CCSWG16

Critical Code Studies Working Group 2016
Jan 18 t0 Feb 14, 2016 

The 4th biannual Critical Code Studies Working Group (CCSWG), Jan 18-Feb 14th is underway, and you are invited to join us for explorations of code in culture and culture through code.

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.  This marks the 10 year anniversary of the publication of the article that named this subfield and the launch of the second decade of scholarship.  The Working Groups have been the principal site of developments in this area, and this one is positioned to continue that tradition.

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:

Schedule: Jan 18-Feb 14
Week 1: Jan 18: Code Literacies: Annette Vee, Sneha Veeragoudar Harrell, Chris Lindgren
Week 2: Jan 25: Archaeologies of Code: Reading ELIZA: David M Berry
Week 3: Feb 1: Politics and Ethics of Code: James Brown, Jr. and Kevin Brock
Week 4: Feb 8: Scalar/Workbench books: all

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

Sponsored by the Humanities and Critical Code Studies Lab (USC) and Transcriptions Center (UCSB)
