Trine Humanities Symposia

Trine University’s Fall 2019 Humanities Symposia concludes with “Hammers, Superheroes, and Apocalyptic Weapons: Norse Mythology in Comics.” Patrick Ridout, assistant director of information services in the LINK, Trine’s library and academic support center, discusses Norse myths and how they have been reinterpreted and popularized in comics.

What is Trine Humanities Symposia?

The Humanities Symposia is a series of presentations and discussions that cover a wide range of topics related to the humanities. It was created as a university outlet for scholars and artists searching for a place to present their research outside of academic conferences. The Symposia allows them to share their research with Trine as well as the local community.
