Call for Papers--Empathy: Self, Society, Culture. Growing out of a two-year grant-supported project on “Virtuous Empathy: Scientific and Humanistic Investigations,” this symposium aims to explore theories and practices of empathy. The symposium will be held November 11-12, 2011 at Indiana University. We invite papers to explore both virtuous and vicious forms of empathy, and to do so from a variety of perspectives. Proposals for papers are invited in three broad categories: Empathy and Psychology; Empathy and Ethics; and Empathy in Culture, History, and Society.
Proposals should include a 500-word abstract and paper title, a 100-word description of the author's research interests, and a one page CV. Authors should aim to present their papers within 40 minutes to allow for response and discussion. All proposals are due by May 9, 2011. Applicants will be notified of acceptance on or around June 8, 2011.
Send proposals to: Empathy Symposium, c/o Richard B. Miller, Poynter Center, 618 E. Third St. Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47045, firstname.lastname@example.org.
