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.

CFP: CRITICAL INSIGHTS: AUGUST WILSON

August Wilson scholar, Dr. Sandra Shannon, has been recently contracted to serve as Volume Editor for EBSCO Publishing's Salem Press brand for Critical Insights: August Wilson. The intended audiences for this new collection of essays include advanced high school and undergraduate students and their teachers. This means that the literary titles and critical subjects developed in these chapters should be commonly studied and accessible for students at these levels.

An important preliminary task is to provide the publisher with the names, email addresses, and mailing addresses of thirteen scholars who agree to write an original chapter on August Wilson.
Deadline for abstracts: July 10, 2012.
