Celebrating 200 years

Arizona State University will serve as the network hub for a global celebration of the bicentennial of the writing and publication of Frankenstein, 2016-2018. The celebration will encompass a wide variety of public programs, physical and digital exhibits, research projects, scientific demonstrations, competitions, festivals, art projects, formal and informal learning opportunities, and publications exploring the novel’s colossal scientific, technological, artistic, cultural and social impacts.

A Year Without a Winter

Get the book A Year Without a Winter brings together science fiction, history, visual art, and exploration. Inspired by the literary dare that would give birth to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein amidst the aftermath of a massive volcanic eruption, and today, by the utopian architecture of Paolo Soleri and the Arizona desert, as well as expeditions to Antarctica and Indonesia, this collection reframes the relationship among climate, crisis, and creation.
