Public Tours: Betray the Secret: Humanity in the Age of "Frankenstein"Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at 12:30 pm
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.
Tours do not require a reservation and are free of charge.
