Happy 200th Birthday, Frankenstein

Happy 200th Birthday, Frankenstein

Talks/Lectures
Although regarded as Gothic sensationalism when first published – both for its lurid tale of a scientist driven mad by his obsession to animate the dead and for the surprising news that the author was nineteen-year-old Mary Shelley – Frankenstein has resonated widely in the popular imagination, most notably in theater and cinema. Over the two centuries since its publication, the work has also served as a vivid allegory in debates about technology, slavery, and universal suffrage. Led by literature and film scholar Lance Rhoades, this multi-media presentation considers how Shelley addressed some of humankind’s greatest concerns with a creation that took on a life of its own.
