STEAM Cafe - Making a Monster: Frankenstein at 200

Join us for the STEAM Café this month! Come enjoy a cold beverage, delicious food, and a fascinating talk given by a SD Mines’ faculty member. This month’s STEAM talk, "Making a Monster: Frankenstein at 200," will be presented by Dr. Laura Kremmel. In 1818, Mary Shelley became one of the greatest creators, releasing her monster, Frankenstein, into the world. Readers, scientists, and creators from all over the world are celebrating the novel this year, the 200th anniversary of its publication. Frankenstein’s monster originated during a time science and humanities were not at odds: both were simply ways of understanding the world. Today, the novel reminds us of the importance of interdisciplinarity to ask the questions at the core of who we are: questions about life, death, power, discovery, love, loss, and humanity. This talk will conclude with a reading by members of the Hard Rockin’ Drama Club. Come for the talk, stay for the company. Dicky’s BBQ food truck will be on location and ready to serve up some tasty dinner options.

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, Hay Camp Brewing Company, and South Dakota Public Broadcasting have teamed up to create STEAM Café, which will be held at 6 p.m. the third Tuesday of each month, at Hay Camp. Join us for dinner and drinks and enjoy a talk by a member of the SD Mines family. Collaborative programs, cutting edge research and historical perspectives on everything from gothic literature to the impact of motherhood are just a few cool things that you’ll learn about at these fun gatherings. A food truck will be on site each month, and Hay Camp will serve their handcrafted beer. The STEAM Café is a place to share new ideas, forge new friendships and grow as a community.
