"Architecture and Literature: Reading the Room" (1-3 November, San Diego); Proposal Deadline: 15 April

updated: 
Thursday, February 14, 2013 - 5:42pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association (PAMLA)

Most literary works take place within the context of some sort of constructed space, e.g. a house, an office, a transit node, a place of worship, a place of performance. The constraints and opportunities of such a setting often contribute to our understanding of characters, actions and ideas. Architecture also provides a rich system of tropes by which readers and writers can define important elements of text either literally or figuratively. This panel seeks papers on literary works from any genre, region or time period that consider the treatment of architecture as background, foreground, structural model or other component of the literary work or works in question.

[UPDATE] Violent Sympathies

updated: 
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 - 6:58pm
Rebeccah Bechtold

In The Theory of Moral Sentiments, Adam Smith reminds us that sympathy for another must emerge from an act of imagination. Yet this act of imagination ultimately fails to capture fully the suffering of another. "Though our brother is upon the rack," Smith warns, "our senses will never inform us of what he suffers" because "we ourselves are at our ease." It follows then that true sympathy and compassion can only come with vulnerability: when the spectator of suffering feels his own life in equal danger.
