Meeting Mary Shelley

Looking forward to this event next Tuesday (Nov 5), which is a kind of TED for the dead. Paired speakers, one living, one “exhumed”, address various aspects of technology and identity. I’m on with Mary Shelley, in recognition of the Frankenstein book I wrote some years back, and will be reflecting on the potential of digital technologies to be adapted for somewhat Frankensteinian ends.

It’s at the rather wonderful new Birmingham library, which will be good to explore, and there are two shows, one afternoon, one evening, if you’re interested.
