How does one develop compassion, and what should one do when feeling it? Dartmouth professor Irene Kacandes explores these questions and examines how we can take action even when our movements are severely limited, such as during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Irene Kacandes teaches in the fields of German Studies; Comparative Literature; Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies; and Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College.
