Frankenstein and STEAM

Essays for Charles E. Robinson

Edited by Robin Hammerman
University of Delaware Press
Charles E. Robinson definitively transformed the study of the novel Frankenstein with his foundational volume The Frankenstein Notebooks and brought heightened attention overall in nineteenth-century studies to the nuances of writing and editing. Frankenstein and STEAM consolidates the generative legacy of his later work on the novel's broad relation to topics in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM). Seven chapters written by leading and emerging scholars pay homage to Robinson's later perspectives of the novel and a concluding postscript contains remembrances by his colleagues and students. This volume not only makes explicit the question of what it means to be human, a question Robinson invited students and colleagues to examine throughout his career, but it also illustrates the depth of the field and diversity of those who have been inspired by Robinson's work and offers direction for continuing scholarship on the intersections of literature, science, and technology.
