Frankenstein, Frankenfood, and the Forgotten Farmer

Appetizer:

In Mary Shelley's 1818 novel, Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein's brother Ernest, appears early in the novel, but he disappears shortly thereafter.

Once sickly, later hale and hearty, Ernest is encouraged to become a farmer and enjoy " a very happy healthy life; and the least hurftul, or rather most beneficial profession of any" (89)

Main Course:

In her talk, Deborah Stiles will discuss the ethical dilemma involving farmers, food, and GMOs, and show how Shelley's Frankenstein, written 200 years ago, contributes to the discussion of today's issues.
