Critical Code Studies applies hermeneutics to the interpretation of computer source code. This special session seeks papers that perform readings of digital objects with an emphasis on source code and related issues. At MLA 2011, CCS played a central role in the panel "Close Reading the Digital." This panel will build on that discussion as well as the recent developments and conversations online (see below).
