[VR Book Chat] Mary Shelley, Sci-Fi, Gothic Stories, and Frankenstein in the Metaverse
Get immersed in Mary Shelley’s ideas, poetry, and sci-fi stories in the metaverse.
VR Book Chat is a virtual meetup for learning science and history in the metaverse (using desktop Chrome web browser, no VR headset required). You will join as an avatar in a WebXR room (VR headset mode will be enabled at a later date). This is a 30-min event series about Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Sci-Fi origins, and gothic literature in a virtual 19th-century mansion.
This event series includes short talks, discussions, poetry reading, and escape room games hosted by Jackie Lee, Caitlin Krause, and Sam Hirst, Ph.D. We will discuss thinkers and authors who inspired Mary Shelley’s works, including the early sci-fi novel – Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus.
In our first event to celebrate her birthday, we will start with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
