Faculty Presentation at Simmons

 —  —

Simmons University (Main Campus Building, 1st Floor), 300 The Fenway, Boston, MA 02115

Join Sidney Berger, distinguished scholar and rare book librarian, as he charts the course of Frankenstein’s creature through two hundred years of popular culture:

 "Frankenstein in the Public Imagination" 

How is that Shelley’s creature has become ripe for cartoons, costumes, and objects of daily use?  How has the horror of her original tale become pleasurable fare for children and adults?  Dr. Berger’s image-rich presentation will trace that fascinating evolution.
