    Abstract:
    John travelled to Odense, Denmark for a conference called "Love Etc." (RTB is for it...) and fell into this conversation about empathy, identification and "uncritical reading" with the novelist Namwali Serpell and literary theorist Rita Felski. Hannah Arendt's distrust of too much feeling, not enough thinking loomed large; so did Zadie Smith's recent article in defense of empathy. The room was unexpectedly resonant-but so were Serpell and Felski's insights.
