Description

This program is suitable for adults aged 16+

Local author Kaaren Warren and Professor William Christie, Head of Humanities at the ANU, discuss the legacy of Mary Shelley’s celebrated gothic novel Frankenstein: or the Postmodern Prometheus, which was first published 200 years ago on the 1st January 1818.

Award winning author Kaaron Warren has been publishing horror and science fiction for more than 20 years, with four novels (including the multi-award winning Slights and The Grief Hole) and six short story collections. Her next book is Exploring Short Fiction #2: Kaaron Warren from Dark Moon Press, out in 2018.

Will Christie is a Professor of English Literature and Head of the Humanities Research Centre at ANU, and a Fellow and Head of the English Section at the Australian Academy of the Humanities. An expert in Romantic literature, he was awarded the NSW Premier’s Biennial Prize for Literary Scholarship in 2008. The theme for the ANU’s Humanities Research Centre for 2018 is Imagining Science and Technology 200 Years after Frankenstein.
