Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature Exhibit

Time: October 22 through December 1, 2018

Location: Andrews Library Foyer


Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature explores the enduring power of the Frankenstein story to expose hidden fears of science and technology—both in the original novel and shaped into new forms, such as plays, films, and comics. Captivating audiences for 200 years, as scientists have gained new knowledge, the Frankenstein story remains like a warning beacon, throwing its unsettling beam upon human efforts to penetrate the secrets of nature.  The exhibit is in six panels, each with a different inter and cross-disciplinary focus.   For more information from the National Library of Medicine see
