The Salon Littéraire will present readings and responses to literature on or adjacent to the sphere of technology. For three years, a reading group centred on participants to previous Salons has been meeting regularly, presenting readings and inviting reflections on them. The Salon workshop will collate the reflections resulting from selected highlights of these sessions and present them to participants for further reflection.

As well as material on computer science proper, we will survey writings in sociology, anthropology, politics, economics, philosophy, semiology and other fields.
