& His World

Course Description

This course explores the cultural context of and future cultural uses for Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

Books to Buy

While there are many editions of Frankenstein, even some available for free, the Norton Critical Edition is required for this class. We will be reading the supplementary material in this class. Even if you get a used copy, you need to have this edition for this class.

Additional Resources

We will be watching an episode of The X-Files for the unit on film versions of Frankenstein. This episode is available on Netflix, a video-streaming service I assume you have access to (either personally or through a friend). If you do not have access to Netflix, you can sign up for a free trial to view the episode in question.
