Fates of Frankenstein Conference

Start date and time

Friday 23 November 2018

to Saturday 24 November 2018


Edinburgh Napier University, Merchiston Campus, Edinburgh

This two-day conference is about adaptations and appropriations of Shelley’s novel, and is part of a series of events organised by The Age of Frankenstein Project to commemorate the bicentenary of Frankenstein’s publication. This conference explores Frankenstein’s myriad cultural fates, in which it not only inspires new narratives and creative works but is also widely invoked by the media and in a range of social and scientific contexts. The conference aims to take stock of the ways in which Frankenstein remains very much alive in 2018, and of trends and innovations in its adaptations, retellings, and reuses in the last two centuries.
