About the Exhibit
Whether it was the reading of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein that ﬁrst caught your attention or the viewing of any one of the ﬁlms exploring the monster over the past century, all of us understand, without a doubt, the enormous, lasting hold that this story has had on society for so long. In addition to the obvious educational merits of this series, such as arousing the curious, promoting scholarship, introducing the library and its website to a larger audience, and a myriad of other reasons, we hope to assist the students, faculty, and community members of our region to join actively into interdisciplinary discussions with guests and scholars from many corners of the University. Frankenstein is ripe with potential for sleuthing the interplay between the arts and the sciences, across literature, psychology, medicine, philosophy, business, and a host of others.
