“'All the vivacities lie in differences’: Sympathy in Stowe’s Dred and The Minister’s Wooing”

Drawing from her second book, Rethinking Sympathy and Human Contact (forthcoming, March 2019), Noble will discuss—in dialogue with Donald Winnicott—the changes in Harriet Beecher Stowe's conception of sympathy and its role in human contact. Rethinking Sympathy and Human Contact describes two approaches to human contact: the first involves negating or transcending the masks of social being; the second more sympathetically rethinks the relationship of social persons to human contact.
