Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I'll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
I'll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
I'll play the orator as well as Nestor,
Deceive more slily than Ulysses could,
And, like a Sinon, take another Troy.
I can add colours to the chameleon,

Before social welfare could exist, it needed to be imagined.

The epoch when the full establishment of the concept of the welfare state in the U.K. and other European countries occurred, 1890-1948, indeed coincides with the phenomenon of European Modernism, conceived here not just as an aesthetic, but as a socio-political phenomenon of visionary reform. The dazzling achievements of the 1890s-1940s interms of modernist arts have been minutely charted over the past decades, and the modernist context superbly brought to life. While much has been made of the interactions between Modernism / suffrage or Modernism / war, however, another epoch-making social revolution was underway, whose correlation with the arts remains more tenuous.

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?
