Books to Blockchain Lab Syllabus

Course Summary

From Books to Blockchain – Fall 2023

This experiential seminar interrogates the democratization of pattern discovery. Who decides what to count and what to keep? Using New York City as a laboratory, we explore the systems of power embedded in tabulation and archiving, and the possibilities of open, decentralized, and autonomous futures. We reflect on the past and present of knowledge infrastructures — from books to blockchain.
