This presentation will be a hands-on workshop to examine both the ways that the Anthropocene presents new challenges for education and to discuss the tools and techniques for responding to this challenge. This presentation will focus on the importance of open knowledge, open access, “commoning,” and public scholarship in developing new modes of formal and informal education for the Anthropocene.
In this presentation, Dr. Kelly weaves together the histories of science, art, literature, and politics to tell a global story about Mary Shelley’s masterpiece. Moving from the battlefields of Napoleonic Europe to the volcanoes of the Pacific to the riverbanks of the Yangtze to the farmlands of North America, the audience will see how Frankenstein reveals close ties between these seemingly disparate places how the world within the novel is itself a product of these global connections.
This event is part of the Indiana Humanities One State / One Story: Frankenstein program and is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
