Empathy as Being Human in American Drama

updated: 
Wednesday, January 23, 2019 - 12:38pm
Modern Language Association and American Theatre and Drama Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2019

Papers will consider how American theatre and drama of any period addresses empathy as part of the human experience. What notions of empathy are sedimented into traditional form(s) and/or by what practices do American plays re-humanize compassion for “the other?” Do American plays invite us to recognize “the other” in ourselves? How might empathy, compassion, and humanism help us to ask new questions regarding American theatre’s past, present, and future - such as how American plays refashion Classical ideas about dramatic catharsis? Conversely, panelists might pursue lines of inquiry, Brechtian or otherwise, which ask readers and audiences to consider a politicized theatrical “awakening” as an empathetic act.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 28, 2019

In a 1968 interview, John Dos Passos commented on what he saw as the growing marginalization of his work by recalling a conversation he once had with Ernest Hemingway. “He always used to bawl me out for including so much topical stuff,” Dos Passos remembered. “He always claimed that was a great mistake, that in fifty years nobody would understand. He may have been right; it’s getting to be true.”
