CFP: Critical Code Studies Working Group 2022

The 7th biennial Critical Code Studies Working Group (CCSWG) has released a Call for Participation.

From the call:

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 previous CCSWGs were published in electronic book review, and this year we are opening the forum itself to all, though only participants can post. Past discussions have led to books, such as (10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10), essays, and conference panels, and of course Critical Code Studies. Join us for explorations for the intersections of computer source code and the humanities.

Planned topics for this year include:

  • code and fibre arts (sewing, weaving, quilting);
  • anti-racist code critiques;
  • code and (post)colonialism;
  • code accessibility, inclusivity, & community;
  • along with creative coding.

Discussion leaders will include:
Anne Sullivan and Anastasia Salter; Nick Montfort; Winnie Soon and Geoff Cox; Micha Cárdenas; Xin Xin and Fabiola Hanna

To participate, apply by 15 December 2021 by filling out this form.
