Frankenstein and His Creation: Who’s the Real Monster? (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Frankenstein and His Creation: Who’s the Real Monster?
Writer: Christine Wisehart
Producer: Christiane Wisehart
Abstract: Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein introduced the world to archetypes we’re still familiar with: the mad scientist and his terrifying creation. But the novel is more than just a horror classic. It also asks questions about the ethics of scientific and technological innovation–questions that we still struggle with today. On this episode of Examining Ethics, we explore one of these questions: is it wrong for scientists and innovators to work or create in isolation? First, we introduce you to “sociability,” an important, behavior-shaping idea in the scientific community of the nineteenth century. Then, we discuss whether scientists and innovators working today have similar ethical obligations. We cover things like the importance of transparency in the ethics of scientific and technological innovation. We also explore the value of democratic oversight to the world of science and technology.

Frankenstein 200: The Birth, Life, and Resurrection of Mary Shelley's Monster (Book)
Title: Frankenstein 200: The Birth, Life, and Resurrection of Mary Shelley's Monster
Author: Jonathan Kearns
Author: Rebecca Baumann
Abstract: wo centuries ago, a teenage genius created a monster that still walks among us. In 1818, Mary Shelley published Frankenstein, and in doing so set forth into the world a scientist and his monster. The daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft, famed women’s rights advocate, and William Godwin, radical political thinker and writer, Mary Shelley is considered the mother of the modern genres of horror and science fiction. At its core, however, Shelley’s Frankenstein is a contemplation on what it means to be human, what it means to chase perfection, and what it means to fear things suchsuch things as ugliness, loneliness, and rejection. In celebration of the two hundredth anniversary of the publication of Frankenstein, the Lilly Library at Indiana University presents Frankenstein 200: The Birth, Life, and Resurrection of Mary Shelley’s Monster. This beautifully illustrated catalog looks closely at Mary Shelley’s life and influences, examines the hundreds of reincarnations her book and its characters have enjoyed, and highlights the vast, deep, and eclectic collections of the Lilly Library. This exhibition catalog is a celebration of books, of the monstrousness that exists within us all, and of the genius of Mary Shelley.

A Frankenstein Atlas (Web Resources)
Title: A Frankenstein Atlas
Author: Jason Kelly
Abstract: A Frankenstein Atlas explores Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein from a spatial perspective. Inspired by research and theoretical approaches in literary mapping and historical geography, A Frankenstein Atlas provides scholars and students with a platform to study and experiment with Shelley's text. This website provides users with access to the maps, gazetteer, pedagogical approach, and writing generated by the Frankenstein Atlas team. It also provides a link to the datasets and schemas underlying the atlas. Teachers are encouraged to create new maps as well as use, improve, and expand these data sets in their courses by creating Github branches. New work can then be integrated into the main repository and, through collaboration, this project can continue to expand.
