Afterword “Code, Race, Climat, Habitudes” First french translation of Wendy Hui Kyong Chun’s writing
After Social Networks had the honour of signing the afterword to the first French translation by Canadian media theorist Wendy Hui Kyong Chun. This afterword is an opportunity for us to look back at the projects of After Social Networks and its links with other research projects being carried out today by young researchers and artists. The book is edited by Les Presses du Réel and EUR ArTeC.
“New media theorist Wendy Hui Kyong Chun exposes her original conception of programming and code, alerts us to the racialization bias, homophily and eugenic tendencies that govern our interactions on platforms, and analyzes the need to call upon the humanities and social sciences in the development of algorithmic models for predicting the evolutions and impacts of climate change.”
