The Invasive Other - 34th Social Research Conference - Day 1
Wednesday, April 20, 2016 at 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall, I202 55 West 13th Street, Room I-202, New York, NY 10011
The Center for Public Scholarship at The New School is pleased to present the 34th Social Research conference, "The Invasive Other," on Wednesday, April 20, and Thursday April 21, at The New School in New York City.
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. The conference explores the way 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.
This conference has been made possible by a generous grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
