Code/Space book cover
Book Reviews

A couple of reviews for our Code/Space book have appeared recently in academic journals.

Francis Harvey, from the Department of Geography, University of Minnesota, says Code/Space "is an important contribution; I only wish it had been written more with GIScience in mind. Still, it is a very worthwhile read." Read the rest of his review from the International Journal of GIS here.

A second review is published in Cultural Geographies in which Matthew Wilson notes perceptively that "it is somewhat surprising that Kitchin and Dodge do not explicitly advocate coding itself as a technique for critical studies of software (alongside ethnography and genealogy) – which would be in alignment with the thrust of much contemporary digital humanities and critical GIS literatures. In what ways can code ‘speak back’ and resist discursive regimes? How might the discourse break down under the weight of code? How are we to code differently?"
