Society of Legal Scholars

Conference: Frankenstein

  • Thursday 14th June 2018
  • Business and Law Building, University of Northumbria

Northumbria University Law School and Department of Social Sciences (in collaboration with the Crime Studies Network) will host this multidisciplinary conference to celebrate the bicentenary of the first publication of Frankenstein or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley.

As well as papers on Frankenstein itself and related literary works, reflections are welcomed on the themes of the novel, such as irresponsible uses of scientific knowledge, the creation of ‘monsters’ through emotional neglect and social stigma, and miscarriages of justice (as in the case of Shelley’s Justine Moritz).
