- a review of the conference, by Caroline Waddington
This one-day SEMPRE conference hosted by the University of Hull included invited presentations, a specialist workshop and selected submissions from researchers on the theme of music and empathy. In recent years there has been a growing interest in empathy in the fields of a variety of contexts, including education and development, emotion, expressiveness, and performance. This conference drew together current research from a range of areas, and encouraged/stimulated discussion on research in music and empathy.
