The Invasive Other, 34th Social Research Conference, April 20-21, 2016
34th IN THE SOCIAL RESEARCH CONFERENCE SERIES
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20 and THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2016
The media is full of headlines about invasive others: the Zika epidemic, the refugee crisis, “Big Data”, GMOs.
Join us and hear Dr. Nathaniel Hupert of Weill Cornell Medical College discuss how epidemics like Zika and Ebola are being transmitted in an increasingly connected world, and Bridget Anderson of Oxford University speak about the “survivalist responses” to the migrant crisis in Europe.
Keynote speaker Michael Ignatieff and others discuss how these relate to each other, to “otherness”, and to the planetary scale of mobility and movement in our world.
