The Annual Lande Family Lecture

Crimes Against Humanity? Where does the gavel fall for morality in science in Frankenstein?

presented by Fiona McDonald, PhD, Postdoctoral Researcher at IUPUI

Did Victor Frankenstein commit a crime against humanity when he created his creature? This talk by Dr. McDonald presents a lively retelling of a hypothetical legal trial about morality in science and the ethics of responsibility. Each character in Frankenstein will be presented as witnesses, and audience members can act as jurors, casting their Vote at the end of the presentation. The goal of this talk is to explore how Mary Shelley presented ethics in science to her 19th century readers and how, today, her book can help us think through the same questions.

RSVP required; Register on Eventbrite here.
