From the Charnel-House to the Future of Law Enforcement – It’s Franken Time!

Few books have captivated humanity’s imagination to the degree of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This talk by Richard Stanton begins with the 1818 text before getting elbow-deep in the viscera of the most imaginative and funny re-interpretations of this visionary work. We’ll join Robocop in a future Detroit, see the creature’s rebirth in post-war Iraq, and ask what the modern Prometheus means in the modern age. Come along for a bloody good time.
 
*Due to the nature of the material, this talk is not suitable for children.
