Description


Please Come Join New College of Florida Division of Humanities in Our First Campus Converstaion of 2018

Frankenstein, Science, Ethics: Questions for Our Own Time

with Professor of Biology Sandra Gilchrist, Associate Professor of Biochemistry Katherine Walstrom, and Professor of Philosophy Aron Edidin

The first conversation in 2018 takes Mary Shelley’s Mary Shelley’s short novel Frankenstein, or the New Prometheus as its inspiration. Sometimes hailed as the first work of science fiction, Frankenstein begins with late eighteenth-century domestic science experiments (using a kite to draw down lightening, reanimating dessicated worms by adding water) to explore the concept and consequences of creating a humanoid “creature” or “monster.”

Come explore the scientific and ethical questions raised by the novel and its progeny with experts in Biology, Chemistry, and Philosophy.

Located on Our Bayfront Campus in the Cook Hall Lobby

Seats are Limitted so please RSVP ASAP. Hope to see you soon!
