This panel focuses on how Frankenstein, long considered a foundational work of modern science fiction, brings ancient thought to bear on some of today’s most pressing issues, from bioengineering and the creation of artificial intelligence to the struggles of marginalized communities. As Frankenstein celebrates its bicentennial, its complex engagement with classical antiquity is more important now than ever.
