About the Seminar

The critical computing seminar is an initiative of the Third Space research lab, Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto. It is an online virtual monthly seminar. Each month we will read a new book on computing and discuss it with their author(s). The objective of the seminar is to create a broader understanding of computing from different critical perspectives including feminism, postcolonialism, postmodernism, intersectionality, queer politics etc. The details about the upcoming seminar are mentioned below.
