CFP: Literacy, empathy and social sustainability conference
Place and date: Halmstad University, September 7-8, 2017
What role can reading fiction play in social literacy? This conference is a health and humanities conference and networking event for the public service professions. 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 three share is that fiction can be a bridge in helping us understand different experiences and cultures.
