Frankenstein Course


Frankenstein Course


An eight week course on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, beginning January, 2020.


Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is a quintessential gothic novel, a foundational text in the history of science fiction, and a gripping monster story. It is beautiful, horrible, and philosophically engaging, has been continually in print since 1823, and has inspired countless imitations and adaptations. Find out what the fuss is about with me. Whether you’re reading Frankenstein for the first time or the tenth, this fascinating text is worth a closer look.

Included in this course:

  • Eight weekly hour-long (or thereabouts) researched and insightful lectures on the texts from Dr. Paul Moffett, a PhD with years of university teaching experience.

  • Visual aids, in the form of slides or videos to accompany each lecture

  • Access to a discord discussion board where you can talk to me and to your fellow students about the text, the lectures, or whatever you want to!

  • Access to at least two live seminars where I will respond to directly to your questions and insights about the texts.
