For all our remarkable scientific and technological achievements as a species, we do not foresee when some advances can lead to destruction, violence and mayhem. In a joint presentation, Lindsey and Tricia will explore the shadow side of scientific advancement from both a psychological and a literary standpoint. Attendees may wish to read the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley beforehand.
