Sarah Faulkner Hosts Book Talk

If you recall our post in August 2022 about Recent Publications by Textual Studies Students & Alumni, TXTDS graduate certificate alum Sarah Faulkner (English PhD, 2020) was invited to write the introduction to Flame Tree Publishing’s Collector’s Edition of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus in 2020. In her introduction, Faulkner highlights the historical and literary context for the novel as well as its multimedia afterlife. She concludes with a new reading of the monster as a touchstone for conversations about sexual violence, the climate crisis, and other current issues.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, December 7, 2022, the UW Alumni Book Club is sponsoring a virtual conversation about Frankenstein with Faulkner. For more information and to sign up for the event, see the UW Alumni Association event page.
