ICC “Between the Lines” Program Unmasks the Many Faces of Frankenstein

Join ICC’s “Between the Lines” program to discuss “Frankenstein on Film: The Many Faces of the Monster,” on Mon., Feb. 4 from 2:30 to 3:30 pm in Room 212C/D on the East Peoria Campus. Bryan Clark will lead the discussion.

On the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, we will look at the various versions of Frankenstein in movies. From comedy to horror to action, this story has transcended across genres in a way few other stories have. In their adaptations of the original book, these films make the story come alive in new ways. But, when is an adaptation no longer an adaptation? These movies increasingly often diverge from the original source. Come see how these movies relate to each other and where they do (and do not) relate to the book. This discussion takes part in ICC’s year-long celebration of Frankenstein through the One Book, One College program.

“Between the Lines” is a lecture series presented by the faculty members of the English, Humanities and Language Studies Department at ICC. The goal of the series is to offer literary presentations that will interest students and people in the community, as well as promote reading literacy and scholarly study.

The programs are free and open to the public.
