Frankenstein is Mary Shelley’s 1818 masterpiece, and the book has stood the test of time, still resonating with readers today and spawning numerous cultural tendrils from movies and television shows to Halloween costumes and songs. The character of Victor Frankenstein is the prototypical “mad scientist,” throwing caution and ethics to the wind in order to complete his research, creating the “monster” that has taken its place in the Mount Rushmore of horror. We will discuss the book, raise questions, and share observations in an October 29th webinar attended by special guest Roslynn Haynes, author and associate professor of English at the University of New South Wales, The Scientist's editorial staff, and members of The Scientist Social Club.
Before and after the webinar, readers are invited to join the discussion in The Scientist Social Club Facebook Group.
