Frankenstein 200 Roundtable I: FYI Text Talk Tuesday

10:00 AM





This panel discussion celebrates the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818) and the continuing influence of her narrative across the disciplines. Panelists include Professors Jennifer Esperanza (Anthropology), Tamara Ketabgian (English), Britt Scharringhausen (Physics/Astronomy), and Robin Zebrowski (Cognitive Science/Philosophy/Psychology). Discussion and Q&A will explore the liberal arts, ethics, AI, biotechnology, race, gender, political revolution, humanness, and recent Frankenstein rewritings such as the film Get Out and Victor Lavalle’s “Black Frankenstein” graphic novel Destroyer.

Discussion questions and writing prompts on Frankenstein may be found here.


Although the event is tailored for Beloit's First-Year Initiatives Program, all are welcome. It highlights the exciting interdisciplinary collaborations that can happen at Beloit--and that fueled Mary Shelley’s imagination when she first wrote her novel as a 19-year-old.


(A second panel discussion will occur at 2-3 pm on October 30.)
