Visiting Assistant Professor of Classics Jesse Weiner co-chaired a panel on “Frankenstein and the Fantastic” at the annual meeting of the Northeast Popular Culture Association. The meeting took place at Keene State University in Keene, N.H., on Oct. 22

Weiner also presented a paper titled “Frankenfilm: Monsters and Monstrosity in Bill Morrison’s Spark of Being.” He traced the film’s construction of monstrosity back to Greek and Roman thought on hybridity, including the material science of Empedocles and Lucretius, the taxonomies of Isidore, and the aesthetics of Horace. Spark of Being (2010) is an avant-garde film adaptation of Frankenstein.
