Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature Poster Exhibition
Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature explores how Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein story poses questions about the consequences of unchecked power and societal responsibility for other human beings, and provides a framework for discussions of medical advances that challenge our traditional understanding of what it means to be human.
