In 1818, a young woman holidaying in Geneva played a game of telling ghost stories. Her name was Mary Shelley, and the tale she wove that evening became one of our most enduring and best-loved novels, Frankenstein.

200 years since it was first published, Professor Marie-Mulvey Roberts will explore and speak about just what it is about Shelley’s masterpiece that was so enduring, as well as taking us on a journey through the gothic and women’s relationship to this fascinating genre.
