Georgetown University
February 21, 2015
Keynote address by Jed Esty, PhD

Deadline for Proposals: December 31st, 2014

The middle passage, the passage of time, a secret passage. Passing as straight, the passing of a loved one, just passing through. Passages and acts of passing often involve movement and transformations that cross — and sometimes blur — traditional boundaries of place, time, identity, or perspective. This conference will explore how and why passages and passing occur, what they entail, and why they matter.

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."

Grainne O'Brien

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.
