Penn’s Bioethics Film Festival celebrates 200th anniversary of ‘Frankenstein’
The University of Pennsylvania kicks off its third annual Bioethics Film Festival Tuesday night. This year’s theme is “Frankenstein” in honor of the novel’s 200th anniversary.
In 1818, Mary Shelley published her novel about an ambitious scientist and his creation, which would become a cautionary tale for what humans do with scientific innovation for the next two centuries.
