We are pleased to announce the 2018 performance lectures, given by members of staff from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

Dr Frankenstein’s monster reborn
Performance lectures at
the Sidney Cooper Gallery 22-23 St Peter’s St, Canterbury CT1 2BQ

2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein; or the Modern Prometheus. Since the publication of the book, the story of the scientist and his creature has been analysed, translated, and made into numerous films.

Dr. Frankenstein created life from inanimate bodies. This process is related to the transformation of inanimate materials and instruments into art and live performance.

The performance lectures are organised by the Centre for Practice Based Research in the Arts, and delivered by members of staff from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
