It’s Alive!: The Science of Shelley’s Frankenstein

It’s alive! Experience the electrifying public experiments that inspired Mary Shelley’s monster through science historian Dean Howarth’s spirited portrayal of Giovanni Aldini.
In the late 18th century, Galvanists took electromedical experiments to the extreme believing electrical shocks could revive the dead. Join us as Mr. Howarth re-creates the demonstrations that shocked audiences then and still fascinate us today.
