The secrets of Frankenstein
Frankenstein is here. And he wants to teach you a lesson. From now until June 17, the Health Science Center Library is playing host to the National Library of Medicine exhibit “Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature.” This traveling exhibit also will be accompanied by a speaker and film series. The exhibit focuses on the historical context of “Frankenstein,” how it has affected popular culture, and how its story and characters frame current discussions of biomedical advances and ethics. In keeping with these themes, the speakers and films presented will address literary, cultural and scientific issues related to the novel. Events will take place throughout May and June, including a screening of “Frankenstein” at 5 p.m. May 26 in the HPNP Complex, Room G-101. All events are free and open to the public.
