2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s seminal gothic novel Frankenstein. In honour of this occasion, members of the Centre for Early Modern Studies have partnered with the Frankenreads project – a global community of scholars and enthusiasts committed to celebrating Shelley’s remarkable achievement – to coordinate a Limerick-based series of events culminating in a public reading of Frankenstein on 31 October 2018. These events will take place between 22-31 October, drawing attention to the vibrant, engaged research and teaching culture at UL and MIC as well as to creativity and collaborative initiatives across the wider Limerick community.
