Students from West Liberty University got an in depth look at a story that is more than 200 years old.
Mary Shelly’s “Frankenstein” turned 200 years old this year, and professors from the University hosted a Symposium showing how the novel relates to modern culture. Professors say the book relates to different fields such as English, philosophy, and biology.
Dr. Angela Rehbein, a West Liberty associate professor of English, said, “so it’s a chance to kind of reflect on the importance of the humanities and literature and to just think about how the novel can teach us things about our contemporary culture.”
More than 100 students and faculty attended the symposium. Frankenstein was released on January 1st, 1818.
