This website was created in 2018 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the year Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein came into the world. Its goal was to provide accessible information about the novel, its author and its remarkable afterlife. It also aimed to stimulate a wider creative and intellectual engagement with Frankenstein and its legacy throughout the bicentennial year, and to act as a place of record for that engagement.

The website was the public face of the Frankenstein 2018 project based at Volda University College in Norway. It is no longer being updated, but we do hope you will still take the time to browse the various sections of the site and that you find something of interest.
