St. Olaf Professor of English Diana Postlethwaite will present a Mellby Lecture titled The Monster Plot: Memory, Intelligence, and Time in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
The Mellby Lecture is open to all.
The annual Mellby Lectures are named in remembrance of St. Olaf faculty member Carl A. Mellby and were established in 1983 to give professors the opportunity to share their research with the public. Mellby, known as “the father of social sciences” at St. Olaf, started the first courses in economics, sociology, political science, and art history at the college. He was professor and administrator from 1901 to 1949, taught Greek, German, French, religion, and philosophy, and is credited with creating the college’s honor system.
