First Session: An Introduction to Critical Code Studies

11 October 2023 17:00 – 18:00

The Cultural Politics of Code is a new reading group exploring ideas and methods from the emerging field of critical code studies. We read computer code as a text and understand it not just as a set of instructions, but as a carrier of meaning, and a medium through which culture is made and propagated. 

This hybrid session will explore an introduction to the discipline and cover the Introduction to Critical Code Studies by Mark C. Marino, and the updated Introduction to the field, also by Marino and Jeremy Douglass, that appeared in the most recent issue of Digital Humanities Quarterly

Join in person or online

This event will be hybrid, held in person at GR04, English Faculty and on Zoom. Sessions will be held fortnightly throughout Michaelmas. To be updated about future sessions, and to receive the Zoom registration link, sign up to the Cultural Politics of Code mailing list.
