The Invasive Other

34th in the Social Research Conference Series
April 20-21, 2016

This conference is grounded in the premise that while seemingly of different orders, invasive others — whether people, plants, ideas, or pathogens — are described in similar ways, and are patrolled and controlled through similar technologies, logics, and policies. We expect the conference to reveal how the language and technologies intersect and play off one another. By placing these different “invasives” alongside one another, we will learn more about the nature of Otherness in our world and how it is managed, governed, or eliminated. If we are to protect the rights of others, this knowledge is invaluable.
