FIGS Friday Forum: Empathy

Start: Nov 1, 2013 9:00:00 AM
End: Nov 1, 2013 7:00:00 PM

Empathy indicates an emotional rapport, or identification, with another person. It has been introduced as a central focus for ‘sensitivity trainings’ and feedback workshops in professional settings, and the relatively new Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) movement in schools. Empathy is promoted as a hallmark of social relationships that if featured in human interactions will presumably make us better at relating to one another. Empathy as advertised seems a worthy means of creating harmony within a community, or between communities, or even nations.

Cleopatra at Knole

Start: Nov 9, 2013 5:00:00 PM
End: Nov 9, 2013 7:00:00 PM


A special presentation about the staging of Samuel Daniel’s Tragedie of Cleopatra will be made by UCL academics and actors at Knole House in Kent on 9 November, exploring whether Lady Anne Clifford played Daniel’s Cleopatra. This is a unique opportunity to hear the research that led to the recent production at UCL, and to see scenes from the play recreated in the Great Hall at Knole, where the closet drama might originally have been performed 400 years ago.

Old books (icon)
Long before phrenology, now largely discarded as a pseudo-science setting out to map and measure mental faculties via the bumps on the human skull, became established in characterisation in both Popular Culture and Victorian Literature, Johann Caspar Lavater’s ideas on physiognomy pervaded the thinking of the Romantics.
