Michelle Faubert on Mary Shelley's Mathilda

Tuesday, 14 November, 2017 @ 12:00 AM - 01:15 PM | Cost:Free

As part of the three-part Redden Foundation-sponsored "English Research Seminar," Dr. Michelle Faubert (Univ. of Manitoba) will be teaching Mathilda, the controversial, posthumously published novella by Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. 

Incest? Suicide? This is Romanticism at its darkest. Mary Shelley wrote Mathilda on the heels of losing her infant daughter and son. She was successfully pressured NOT to publish Mathilda by her famous father William Godwin, who called the work “disgusting.” Find out why at the Master Class and enjoy free sandwiches! 

Free and open to everyone!
