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?
