Location: Lecture Theatre 402, Business and Law Building, City Campus East, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8ST

Northumbria University Law School and Department of Social Sciences (in collaboration with the Crime Studies Network) is pleased to announce a multidisciplinary conference to celebrate the bicentenary of the first publication of Frankenstein or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley.



Call for Papers:

Law and literature, criminology and humanities papers and presentations from established academics and postgraduate students are particularly welcome. Other disciplines reflecting medical, scientific, historical, political or social aspects of the novel or of its many realisations in film, other media and the performing arts are strongly encouraged.

As well as papers on Frankenstein itself and related literary works we welcome reflections on the themes of the novel, such as irresponsible uses of scientific knowledge, the creation of ‘monsters’ through emotional neglect and social stigma, and miscarriages of justice (as in the case of Shelley’s Justine Moritz).
