“Frankenstein’s Shadow: A Bicentennial Assessment of the Frankenstein Narrative’s Influence.” A workshop hosted by Arizona State University’s Frankenstein Bicentennial Project.
Mary Shelley created the story that would become Frankenstein in the wee hours of June 16, 1816 in Cologny, on the south shores of Lake Geneva. Two hundred years after the idea for Frankenstein began to take shape, a team of scholars from Arizona State University, Duke University, the University of Lausanne, and the Brocher Foundation will return to Cologny to convene an interdisciplinary symposium examining how the novel has influenced debates about emerging technologies, bioethics, and the role of science and scientists in society.
