Description"Beyond Code and Craft" is an international conference dedicated to exploring and updating historical and contemporary understandings of code and craft. We will focus on the diversity of algorithmic and computational intelligence - code - and its complex overlapping relationship with human craft. Just as many forms of human craft collaborate and compete in cultural and economic production, so also are there many families of algorithms. This conference seeks new distinctions and the development of a new vocabulary, drawn from the past, to make sense of algorithms in the present and the future.

"Beyond Code and Craft" is sponsored by "Algorithms, Models, and Formalisms," a Mellon Foundation Project at the Franke Institute for the Humanities.
