Rereading Empathy

The call to empathize has become truly inescapable over the last decade.  Feeling with others, so the claim goes, is an ever more necessary counterbalance to economic and political systems that appear to no longer attempt to obscure their inexorable cruelty. According to philosopher Jesse Prinz, more books have been published with the word “empathy” in their titles since 2010 than in all of the 20th century. Prinz’s metric reveals a cultural fascination with empathy in educational, therapeutic, media, and scholarly circles—a trend that we might call the “empathetic imperative.” Indeed, empathy is often presented as a panacea for the world’s woes, offered as both diagnostic tool and subsequent cure.

Gothic Girlhood: Intersecting Identities Across Gothic Traditions

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

Diana Wallace and Andrew Smith note that the Female Gothic has been an ever-shifting category since its introduction into literary vocabulary by Ellen Moers in 1976, asserting that the Female Gothic “is shaped by...national identity, sexuality, language, race, and history” (The Female Gothic, 10). Gothic scholarship has long demonstrated that the mode varies across national and continental borders particularly drawing out distinctions between the American and the British. However, less attention has been paid to the concept of age. Keeping in mind the conference theme, how does the space of girlhood and/or adolescence complicate or further our understanding of the Female Gothic?

Art & Action: Literary Authorship, Politics, and Celebrity Culture

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 29, 2019

Writers and writers’ organisations have a long history of using their public standing and cultural capital to promote causes that transcend the literary sphere, from abolition and gender equality to free expression, anti-war agitation, and environmental issues. This two-day conference explores the intersections of authorship, politics, activism, and literary celebrity across historical periods, literatures, and media. It examines the forms and impact of authorial field migrations between literature and politics and the ways in which they are situated within, and shaped by, structural frameworks that include academic institutions, prize-giving bodies, publishing industries, and literary celebrity culture.
