After dinner, Anne Mellor, Distinguished Research Professor of English Literature and Women's Studies will speak on "Mothering Monsters: Frankenstein and Genetic Engineering."
On June 16, 1816, Mary Shelley invented the myth of modern science, the myth of the scientist who creates a monster that destroys him and everyone he loves. How and why did this eighteen-year-old girl create this story? Professor Mellor's talk will explore the origins of Frankenstein andwhat Shelley's novel has to tell us about recent technological developments in microbiology and genetic engineering.
