Celebrating the Bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein: An Evening of Eerie Prose & Poetry

Celebrating the Bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein:
An Evening of Eerie Prose & Poetry
Wednesday, October 31
6:30 – 8 p.m.
Geisel Library, Seuss Room

Join the UC San Diego Library as we celebrate the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein! Published in 1818, the classic novel is considered by many to be the first piece of science fiction and greatly influenced the horror and sci-fi genres. To commemorate 200 years since its publication, the UC San Diego Library is hosting a spoken/written word event on Wednesday, October 31 in the Seuss Room.

Submit works of either prose or poetry (or perhaps a letter, as correspondence was a major literary device in Frankenstein) that are no more than 200 words. We encourage you to explore horror or sci-fi themes related to the novel, including (but not limited to): maleficent medicine, unsupervised science, abandoned creations, problematic Prometheus, etc.

You’ll have the opportunity to read your work or have someone read it aloud for you! Email your entry to spaulson@ucsd.edu by or before October 29.

Enjoy experimental libations at our refreshment laboratory and eerie music from our haunting house band! This event is free and open to the public.

There will also be an exhibit in the Biomedical Library that will highlight Frankenstein’s scientific and medical background, as well as a paper theater featuring the main characters of the book. This exhibit will be on display until November 15.

Medical Illustrations Exhibit

  

Medical Illustrations Exhibit
January 16 – March 4, 2018
Biomedical Library Breezeway

The UC San Diego Library recently installed a Medical Illustrations exhibit featuring visual literary materials that record and relay medical and biological knowledge. The ongoing exhibit aims to explore the noteworthy craft of artists and writers that have contributed to our understanding of modern medicine.

Among the items on display include illustrations, books, and studies highlighting critical medical achievements. Featured works include a reproduction oil painting on canvas by Rembrandt, vibrant illustrations from Niki de Saint Phalle’s personal call to action in the earliest years of the public health crisis, and examples of Leonardo Da Vinci’s groundbreaking anatomical studies. Additional works include a Native American medicine hut drawn by a Cheyenne warrior and excerpts chronicling the advent of herbal medicine in the nineteenth century.

We are open to suggestions for additional works to showcase in the exhibit. Please send us your ideas via Twitter or Instagram DM @ucsdlibrary.

The exhibit will be up through the month of February in the Biomedical Library Building breezeway.
