Frankenstein and Jurassic Park: Two Tales of Science Fiction and Imagination

Event Type: Adult Program with Speaker
Age Group(s): Open to Public
Date: 9/15/2018
Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Time: 2:00 PM
 Cassandra Bausman, Assistant Professor of English at Trine University, will speak. Frankenstein and Jurassic Park share several intriguing themes, including the ethics of scientific process, the commercialization of scientific achievement; and the interplay of power, control, and respect for the natural world. This talk by Dr. Bausman will explore these comparisons and consider how both stories help us think about the exciting, yet potentially difficult relationship between scientific progress and imagination. Examining these Promethean tales celebrates Frankenstein's remarkable staying power and suggests that storytelling and science both share the centrality of imaginative vision, from Shelley's groundbreaking work and Crichton's juggernaut to Spielberg's cinematic mastery.
