Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein has held a place in the popular imagination for 200 years. Join us for an evening exploring two themes from the novel and their relevance to today’s world. First, discover ways the monster is represented in Queer art and how its descendants find their way into contemporary culture and media with Charlie Fox, author of This Young Monster. Next, Rosalind Williams, Bern Dibner Professor of the History of Science and Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, talks about the conundrums posed in the novel—how can we exercise responsibility in a world of innovation beset by unintended consequences?
The exhibition It’s Alive! Frankenstein at 200 will open at 5:30 pm for program attendees.
