CFP: Literacy, empathy and social sustainability collection
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
What role can reading fiction play in social literacy? This collection is a health, social sustainability and reading. Within nursing education and schools the reading of fiction is part of the curriculum but voices can be heard asking if it is really that necessary and how it is useful. Librarians deal with literature every day. A perspective that these professions three share is that fiction can be a bridge in helping practicitioners understand different perspectives, xperiences and cultures.
