One State/One Story: Frankenstein Lectures

As part of the "One State/One Story: Frankenstein" initiative designed by Indiana Humanities, adults are invited to learn more about the themes found in the classic novel, "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley, as it turns 200 in 2018. The initiative is funded by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and a grant from The Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF affiliate, and is presented in partnership with the Indiana State Library and Indiana Center for the Book. The topic for this program is "Frankenstein and Jurassic Park: Two Tales of Science Fiction and Imagination." Contemplate the ethics of scientific process; the commercialization of scientific achievement; and the interplay of power, control and respect for the natural world in this comparison of these two stories led by Professor Cassandra Bausman.
