To the Editors:

Readers will be aware of many stories about invasive others: the Zika epidemic, the refugee crisis, “Big Data,” and GMOs. Join us at the New School on April 20 and 21 for our thirty-fourth Social Research conference, “The Invasive Other,” with keynote speaker Michael Ignatieff, who will address the migrant crisis and how it relates to “otherness” and to the scale of movement in our world.
