Implementation of a state-wide, multiformat program that uses the novel Frankenstein to discuss the impacts of scientific and technological change on human life and society.

Indiana Humanities’ One State/One Story: Frankenstein is grand in scale, outside the box, and sure to ignite conversations across the Hoosier State. We propose an ambitious statewide slate of 10 distinct yet complementary program formats, each using Mary Shelley’s seminal novel, which turns 200 in 2018, as the jumping off point for meaningful discussions among ordinary Hoosiers about the ways scientific and technological changes are (re)shaping our lives and communities. Among the programs this proposal will fund are 100 community reads, a humanities scholars speakers bureau, a sci-fi and horror festival for teens, a nationally distributed ethics podcast, a unique kick-off readathon and festival, an in-depth weekend retreat for adults, and campus read grants for 11 Indiana colleges and universities to coordinate campus and community programs. One State/One Story: Frankenstein is conceived as a signature program of Indiana Humanities’ two-year Quantum Leap initiative.
