Procedural Values

Together with Christian Ulrik Andersen, Marie-Luise Angerer, Geoff Cox, Jan Distelmeyer, Magda Tyzlik-Carver, and Søren Pold, I am going to join the panel discussion titled “what values?”  as part of the transmediale workshop/festival in 2018 at Brandenburg Center for Media Studies – ZeM, Potsdam.

Venue: ZeM – Brandenburgisches Zentrum für Medienwissenschaften
Date: 29 Jan 2018

My topic is called “Procedural values” which will draw upon the following text:

  • Michael Meteas’s text: Procedural Literacy: Educating the New Media Practitioner (2005)
  • Ed Finn’s text: What’s algorithm? in What Algorithms Want (2017)
  • Annette Vee’s “procedural knowledge” in Coding Literacy: How Computer Programming is Changing Writing (2017)
  • Nick Montfort’s why program in Exploratory Programming (2016)
