Mary Shelley's Frankenstein 200 years later...


Mary Shelley began writing Frankenstein in 1816 and published her most famous novel in 1818. On Jan. 30th, 2017, The Oakridge School will host students and faculty from the surrounding area (and beyond) to celebrate one of popular culture’s most influential stories. Students from multiple schools will have the opportunity to share their work on a literary classic in front of peers and faculty of the surrounding community. Students whose submissions are selected will present in various workshops with the expectation that there will be discussion and reflection afterwards. Of course all students, faculty, and parents are welcome to attend as a participatory audience regardless of whether a submission is accepted or not, so please join our collaboration, and remember that the call for proposals due date is Nov. 22nd, 2016!

On the website, you will find three categories for Calls for Student Work: 
(1) a Call for Papers 
(2) a Call for 2D Art & Film 
(3) a Call for MakerSpace Designs & Products. 

Please take a look at the various pages for more instructions and information about the different types of opportunities to participate as well as more on how to submit students' work. 

The Form+ for sharing submissions (which are due Nov. 22nd, 2016!) can be found here

All submissions will be judged by a committee of faculty persons and administrators from various schools that plan to participate in the colloquium. All students of participating schools are encouraged to attend and enjoy the festivities regardless of whether submissions are accepted. Students whose work is accepted will be notified sometime in December 2016, and the event will take place at The Oakridge School on January 30th, 2017.

We hope you join the bicentennial celebration of Mary Shelley's most famous work of literature!
