As the bicentennial of the publication of the early Gothic’s masterpiece, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, 2018 is
an ideal time to reconsider how we understand the aesthetic qualities, ideological underpinnings, historical
development, and cultural work of Gothic literature. Derided as juvenile or worse through most of the

Science Fiction Studies is currently soliciting proposals for a July 2018 special issue celebrating the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818), a work that forever changed the genre of science fiction. In Frankenstein, Shelley experimented not only with subject matter, new scientific inventions and their many terrifying and horrific possibilities, but also narrative and form. Her use of multiple frame narratives, nested one within another, was a notable shift from the eighteenth-century novels she grew up reading, and her merging of popular culture’s fascination with science and the Gothic broadened the emerging genre of science fiction.
