Symposium: Nonhumans and Sympathy

Description:
This symposium will examine literatures role in helping humans behold, understand, and sympathize with nonhuman animals, plants, and ecosystems. How do poetic and rhetorical devices of metaphor, simile, pathos, and affect identify with, mourn, or exalt the nonhuman? How do literary texts imagine sympathetic and antipathetic obligations to the nonhuman? And, ultimately, can literature incite the desire and will needed to author a new treaty between humans and animals, plants, and ecosystems including the most difficult, challenging, and hostile nonhumans? {Will appear in FYI on Sep 16, 2013
