FrankenWeek

FrankenWeek

October 28-31, 2018

Various locations across UVic campus

Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein sparked a legacy of horror and science fiction that can still be traced to popular culture today. The green monster brought to life in a laboratory and commonly referred to as “Frankenstein” was inspired by The Creature in Shelley’s novel—despite having little actual resemblance. Learn more about this seminal work of art during FrankenWeek, running from Oct. 28 to 31. FrankenWeek celebrates the history, text, themes and performance of Shelley’s Frankenstein on its 200th anniversary. Listen to a livestream of the novel from Washington, DC, catch a film at Cinecenta or visit UVic’s Special Collections exhibit, “Gothic Beginning and Monstrous Legacies: 200 Years of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.”
