Betray the Secret: Humanity in the Age of "Frankenstein"
April 4, 2018 - August 5, 2018
Marking the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus, Stanford University is organizing Frankenstein@200. This yearlong series of courses, lectures, conferences, and a film festival will highlight the relevance of Shelley’s text today, as artificial intelligence and advances in engineering and medicine increasingly blur the divide between man and machine. An associated exhibition drawn from the Cantor’s permanent collection will explore the idea of what defines humanity in the age of Frankenstein.
The Museum is OPEN Memorial Day, Monday, May 28 from 11AM–5PM, and parking is Free.
The Rodin Sculpture Garden and campus sculptures are always open to visitors.
