Oboler Library will host a reception to launch the exhibit "Seeing Frankenstein: Two Centuries of Imagining Mary Shelley's Novel" on Wednesday, January 17 at 5 PM. The reception is free and open to the public.

Since its publication in January 1818, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein has captivated readers with its eloquence, its terrors, and its exploration of the promises and perils of human knowledge and inquiry. It has also inspired a range of responses, interpretations, and adaptations in theater, film, comics, and television. This exhibit focuses on some key contributions to the ongoing reception of Shelley's work.

Exhibit designers Jeffrey Howard (PhD in English, Idaho State University) and Matthew VanWinkle (assistant professor of English, Idaho State University) will speak briefly at the reception, providing background and context for the exhibit.

"Seeing Frankenstein" will be on display through the end of February. For more information, contact ISU's Department of English and Philosophy at
