Italo Calvino once asked, "Who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined?" And while this question maintains its relevance, it is about time we turn our attention away from the individual, the "we," and ask this question of the texts we produce and the environments in which they are produced.

The Essay as Genre

Despite the numerous exegeses in defense of the form from Lukács to Bakhtin, the essay remains a peripheral form of cultural production. Often praised as knowledge in-progress, the essay is experimental and variable ranging in scope from highly personal prose to timely political photography and film. Though the essay remains central to academic and theoretical discourse, it is often a space of anti-scholasticism and political transgression considered supplementary to traditional narratives.

Scientists have declared that we are in living in the Anthropocene, an age in which human behavior and actions are massively altering the ecosystems of the earth. Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen claims that whereas humans once saw themselves as "rebels against a superpower we call 'Nature,'" now "we are taking control of Nature's realm, from climate to DNA. We humans are becoming the dominant force for change on Earth."

Since the release of Marvel's Thor along with its sequel and the Avengers Assemble movies, there has been a renewed interest in Loki, the Trickster God.

Tom Hiddleston's depiction of this legendary character has seen Loki become an international household name. But how much is Marvel responsible (if at all) for Loki's now mainstream status?

This collection will examine any and all representations of Loki from his appearance in Norse Mythology, up to his appearance in comics, films, TV series, and novels today.
