Speaker(s): Maddy Potter PhD
From scientific experiments to body snatching, this course will look at the history and context of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. We will begin by looking at the historical circumstances which led to Shelley writing her famous novel, and move on to a close analysis of Victor Frankenstein’s creature, as we ask: what makes a monster? Attempting to answer this question, we will explore the moral, religious, and scientific implications of the relationship between Frankenstein and his creature, analysing the humanity and monstrosity of both.
