Soft Authorship

I’ve completed my prospectus, met with my committee: I’m now a doctoral candidate, in the limbo that is ABD.

My research proposal can be summed up this way: when cultural artifacts are built of software, what is the nature and significance of software engineering as a form of collective and collaborative authorship (or artistic practice?) I’m planning to look at a range of work, from very commercial videogames to open-source projects to art-games made for installations.
