The Frankenstein of the Apple Crate: A Possibly True Story of the Monster's Origins (Book)
Title: The Frankenstein of the Apple Crate: A Possibly True Story of the Monster's Origins
Author: Julia Douthwaite Viglione
Abstract: The first in a line of children's books I am publishing, as CEO of Honey Girl Books and Gifts LLC. (As promised in my grant report, I am experiencing life as a small business owner, in preparation for writing the NEH funded scholarly book on money in lit.) "The Frankenstein of the Apple Crate" is a ghost story, a Gothic novel for youngsters, and a work of alternative history. It shows how Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, then age 19, could have got the inspiration to write her masterpiece Frankenstein during that fateful night on the banks of Lake Geneva. It makes a leap of imagination into the past to unearth how the girl Mary could have read a French tale, published in 1790, that features an inventor named Frankénsteïn who makes a man-sized robot. Could the secret have been left behind in the papers of her mother, the amazing Mary Wollstonecraft? Possibly true (and possibly not!), "The Frankenstein of the Apple Crate" was inspired by archival research, and includes historical and biographical notes by scholars of the French Revolution, Mary Shelley, and the thrilling Frankenstein.

A Spooky Tale of Spring, Or, How the Grumpy Mom Got her Cheer Back (Book)
Title: A Spooky Tale of Spring, Or, How the Grumpy Mom Got her Cheer Back
Author: Julia Douthwaite Viglione
Abstract: The second in a line of children's books I am publishing, as CEO of Honey Girl Books and Gifts LLC. (As promised in my grant report, I am experiencing life as a small business owner, in preparation for writing the NEH funded scholarly book on money in lit.) This book retells the Dickens novel, "A Christmas Carol," with a Ghost Cat named Iris instead of a Ghost business partner named Marley: a spooky cat who visits her former owner to teach a lesson of kindness to animals. When the Ghost Cat and other spirits leave her at last, the grumpy woman's bad temper is gone and a new friend named Cheer moves in. Set during the COVID-19 pandemic, this book updates a classic for our troubled times and depicts a multicultural urban utopia as the happy ending, with humor that both children and adults will enjoy. As Murray Baumgarten, Founder of the UCSC Dickens Project writes: "Laughter heals, and this lovely book kept me laughing. It's a wonderful tribute to Dickens's 'Christmas Carol', by extending it to animals. Our pets come out ahead here, knowing things it would be best for we adults to learn and take to heart. And as we laugh and chortle, we heal."

CSEM 23102: Money Worries: Status and Value in Literature, Art, and Economic Theory (Course or Curricular Material)
Title: CSEM 23102: Money Worries: Status and Value in Literature, Art, and Economic Theory
Author: Julia Douthwaite Viglione
Abstract: This course builds on the current fascination with wealth and status to help students gain wisdom for living in capitalism. Complementing the special exhibit called “Money Worries” at the Snite Museum of Art, the course questions the “rational” nature of markets and the concept of value. We will study literature (fairy tales, fables, poetry and novels by Honoré de Balzac, Ayn Rand, and Alain Mabanckou) alongside theories of human behavior by economists Robert J. Shiller and Ha-Joon Chang in order to understand how value is assigned to certain products and social profiles (and not others), and to see how the marketing of elitism depends on socio-political factors to succeed. We will end with a consideration of some alternative economies that provide hope for the future.

Audience: Undergraduate

Money Worries (Exhibition)
Title: Money Worries
Curator: Cheryl Snay
Curator: Julia Douthwaite Viglione
Curator: Randal Harrison
Abstract: Money is a frequent source of anxiety and stress in our daily lives. How do we get it? How do we keep it? What do we do with it once we have it? Bank notes are fundamentally promissory notes that generate and structure interpersonal and social relations. How does that affect our understanding of our own self-worth, the value we place on others, and our relationships to them? The “flip-side” of making value is making inequality. This exhibition aims to disrupt visitors’ received attitudes toward money, wealth, and poverty by examining various forms of antique and modern currency and anachronistic juxtapositions of historical and contemporary depictions in art of financial transactions, allegories, and portraits. Visitors will also have an opportunity to play digital or board games that challenge assumptions of “fairness” both in the artificial environment of the game and in life. The Landlord Game is a free educational board game designed to help faculty gamify the economic dimensions of social justice for their students. Follow the link to access more information about the game and to download game materials as seen in the Money Worries exhibition. https://randal-sean-harrison.github.io/landlord/index.html
