Rethinking Empathy: What Literature Can Teach Us About Feeling With Others

Recent years have seen exciting developments on the topic of empathy in a number of fields including neuroscience, social psychology, and philosophy. We invite proposals for essays to be included in a collection on empathy and literature. We believe this volume will serve as an important contribution to a growing field of inquiry. The collection conceives of “literature” broadly to include the graphic novel. We are also open to other narrative media, such as film, television, and online media.
