This panel will address illustrative, pictorial, and digital treatments and adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The novel has a 195-year history of illustration and depiction in a wide range of visual arts, media, and technologies—from the 1823 cover of Richard Brinsley Peake’s play Presumption to the first issue of the comic series Mary Shelley, Monster Hunter (February 2019). The novel’s “hyperadaptability” in visual form, to adopt Dennis Perry’s term, extends to a wide range of modes.

Holidays are central components of culture. They can be celebratory or commemorative. They can be festive, merry, and joyous in their celebrations, or (also simultaneously) sombre, solemn, and reflective in their commemorations. They help us mark the calendar, highlight important sociocultural milestones, measure the passage of time, follow the turning of the seasons, and, in so doing, organize life and society.

’Cause in London Town

There’s just no place for a street fighting man

—The Rolling Stones, 1968 


Mick Jagger’s words above can sometimes feel axiomatic.  London has an outwardly less impressive revolutionary tradition to call upon than many of its closest neighbours, most obviously Paris.  This is to say, of course, that history is political: if the past seems quiet, what hope for remaking the future?   


London Rising is interested in redeeming the capital’s radical past whilst insisting upon the revolutionary potential of the present.  Our aim is to collectively describe a continuum of tumult in London, attuned to the struggle between conflicting forces.
