Description

This course will allow students to think through the concept of “code” from several vantage points, focusing particularly on how codes carry politics and how politics determine and define relationships of power. Code, as we will see, can be based on a wide variety of phenomena, from coding as categorization, to coding as passwords, to coding as computer programming languages and software. These varied understandings of what code can make us consider how exactly code can have politics, and how that politics might interact with—and determine— our daily lives.
