Event description

Description

This one-day conference will provide a much needed interdisciplinary forum for memory studies to engage explicitly with the question of empathy.

Themes for the symposium will include:

Aesthetics, identification and the imagination
Gender, empathy and witnessing
Specific media and the transmission of empathy
The historicity of empathy
The politics of empathy
Empathy and the transnational/transcultural

The day will be divided into three sessions, including a keynote from Stef Craps (Department of English Literature, Ghent University), plus generous time for discussion and responses from the floor.

Further information about the event can be obtained by contacting Silke Arnold-de Simine, (email: s.arnold-desimine@bbk.ac.uk)
