The Invasive Other

April 20, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - April 21, 2016 @ 7:30 pm


This conference is grounded on the premise that while seemingly of different orders, invasive others – whether people, plants, ideas or pathogens – are described in similar ways, and patrolled and controlled through similar technologies, logics and policies. Indeed, we expect the conference to reveal how the language and technologies intersect and play on 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 exterminated.  If we are to protect the rights of others, this knowledge is invaluable.
