Event description

Description

Frankenstein is still relevant today as it was 200 years ago, and Shelley's creature lives on as an embodiment of society's anxieties about where science is taking us. Join Phil Ball and a panel of science historians and biographers as they discuss the context in which the book was written and how the tale has become a popular myth with a life of its own, independent of Shelley's original text.

Discounted tickets are available to Members of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.

Latecomers may be admitted to the gallery.
