The New College of Florida Division of Humanities presents: Marilyn Francus Professor of English, West Virginia University. O Mother, What Art Thou? O Mother, Where Art Thou? Frankenstein at 200 - In 1818, 17-year old pregnant Mary Shelley, daughter of the famous Mary Wollstonecraft, who died within days of Mary's birth, fashioned a motherless monster in her novel, Frankenstein. This maternal absence let Shelley sidestep one of the era's conventions--the monstrous mother--only to settle into the era's alternative: the idealized, dead mother. Professor Francus, author of Monstrous Motherhood, will discuss how Frankenstein and the conventions of motherhood that shaped Shelley's novel endure, and continue to shape our notions of motherhood today.
