Software Studies

How do we see, think, consume, and make software? How does software—from algorithmic procedures and machine learning models to free and open-source software programs—shape our everyday lives, cultures, societies, and identities? How can we critically and creatively analyze something that seems so ubiquitous and general yet is also so specific and technical? How do artists, designers, coders, scholars, hackers, and activists create new spaces to engage computational culture, enriching our understanding of software as a cultural form? In this cross-disciplinary series, we present authors and books that answer these questions by focusing on software as a site of societal and technical power.
