"Umana cosa è aver compassione": Care and Empathy in Italian Literature and Film (NeMLA - Northeast Modern Language Association)
Event: NeMLA - Northeast Modern Language Association
From the Franciscan value of compassion to the empathetic responses that many neorealist works propose, the Italian culture abounds with examples of the human capacity to share in the feelings of others. Drawing inspiration from the conference theme of "care," this panel welcomes papers that address compassion and/or empathy in Italian literature, cinema, and the arts.
