Session Title – Performing Empathy:  When Literary Texts Are Acts of Kindness

This session seeks papers on the empathic potentials of literature, broadly defined.  The subtext here is the social division in the present-day America, where sympathy fatigue—a feeling of resentment arising from the belief that one has been asked to extend one’s sympathy to outgroups, such as women, minorities, immigrants, and the poor, beyond what one feels is reasonable—is often cited as one reason for the intransigence.  The larger question we will ask ourselves is the following:  how can literature act as a vehicle of empathic connection and reinforce people’s capacity for compassion toward the marginalized other?

Prisons, prisoners, and crime are attracting unprecedented levels of interest from both predictable sources (tabloid media) to more unexpected (such as the prison setting of Paddington 2).

 

Globally, but especially in the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia, the real life prison population is rising dramatically. The fictional presentations of prison, which may be prurient and sexploitative, high minded or fantastical, is matched by the barely factual and highly sensationalized prison of reality television. Orange is the New Black is only the latest example of the compulsion media of all types have to look inside the prison.
