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.

• Animal bodies, nonhuman bodies
• The political or legal body
• The body and violence

[UPDATE] [SAMLA Nov. 9-11, 2013] Literary Science: Approaches to Teaching Literture with Scientific Themes and Contexts

updated: 
Thursday, June 21, 2012 - 10:15am
Paul Brown/ University of South Carolina

This panel investigates how to effectively teach literature that contains strong scientific elements. Literature actively participates in the ongoing rhetoric of scientific inquiry and discourse and gives voice to the promise and fears associated with technological advancement. Many literary works engage very particular aspects of theory and practice from fields such as neurobiology or quantum physics while others engage with the rhetoric associated with science and/or its misinterpretations (Social Darwinism for Evolution or relativism for Relativity, etc.).

Charting the Tradition: Irish Women's Fiction, 1880-1930; 2012 SAMLA Convention, Nov. 9-11; Deadline July 13, 2012

updated: 
Wednesday, June 20, 2012 - 7:56pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association

This special session seeks papers that focus on any aspect of Irish women's fiction from approximately 1880-1930. Irish women's writing from nineteenth and early twentieth centuries remains underresearched, though several volumes, including Ann Owens Weekes's Irish Women Writers: An Uncharted Tradition, have sought to remedy this lack. This session aims to encourage such continued exploration.

Please send proposals in Word format as attachments of 250-300 words to Dr. Audrey D. Johnson, johnsonaudreyd@gmail.com, by July 13, 2012.
