Under the Moon

Our session on Wednesday 25th March will focus on the gendered history of computer programming. Come to MayDay Rooms at 6pm for a screening of Lynn Hershman Leeson’s Conceiving Ada (1997):
virtual Reality, history, gender and genetic engineering – a contemporary computer scientist taps into the undying information waves to communicate with 19th century maths genius Lady Ada Lovelace 

Suggested (but not required) reading for this session is Wendy Hui Kyong Chun’s ‘On Software, or the Persistence of Visual Knowledge’ – you can find the text here. The screening will be followed by a conversation led by Sam McBean, who will discuss her research into queer temporalities of Conceiving Ada
