A Monster’s Discussion – Kick-Off Fall 2018 Frankenstein Bicentennial

Monster PanelSan Jose State University continues its boisterous celebrations of the 1818 publication of Mary Shelley’s essential novel, Frankenstein on September 18, 2018, 1-3pm – FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC – @ The Hammer Theatre (101 Paseo De San Antonio, San Jose, CA 95113)

Roundtable Discussion moderated by Jonathan Gill: President Papazian, Dr. Eastwood, and Dr. Vaidya will be discussing the literary creature from three unique perspectives. The event is structured in more of a debate format with a back and forth discussion amongst the panelists, and an audience Q&A will follow. We hope you will encourage your students to attend this free event.

Dr. Anand Vaidya, “What’s In Your Head? – the Moral Zombie”
