"Mothering Monsters: Mary Shelley's Frankenstein"

The Fletcher Lecture 2008-2009 will be held April 22, 2009 at the Memorial Union Alumni Lounge (MU 202) ASU, 5:00 p.m.

The 2008-2009 Ian Fletcher Memorial Lecture features Anne Mellor, Distinguished Professor of English and Women's Studies at UCLA. Mellor specializes in Romantic literature, British cultural history, feminist theory, philosophy, art history and sexuality studies. She is most known for a series of essays and books that introduced forgotten women Romantic writers into literary history and she edited the first volume of feminist essays on Romantic writers in 1988, entitled Romanticism and Feminism. Her most important books on women and Romanticism include Mothers of the Nation: Women's Political Writing in England, 1780-1830 (2000), Mary Shelley: Her Fiction, Her Life, Her Monsters (1988), and Romanticism and Gender (1993). She also co-edited British Literature 1780-1830, a literary anthology that contributed to the prominence of women writers in Romanticism course syllabi and literary criticism. In 1999 Mellor received the Keats-Shelley Association Distinguished Scholar Award. She has received, among many other recognitions, two Guggenheim Fellowships and several National Endowment for the Humanities grants.
