Shannon Simon, a Sophomore at Parish Episcopal School, will be presenting her paper “Mary Shelley's Frankenstein: Frankenism” at the 2017 Frankenstein Colloquium

Shannon Simon, Class of 2019
Shannon Simon is a sophomore at Parish Episcopal School which she has been attending since she was in seventh grade. She is extremely involved in the school's Community Service Leadership Board, the Leadership Institute, the Peer Counselors, and the Thespians Society. Shannon also loves volunteering at a daycare center for homeless children and does film acting. She was fascinated at the ideas presented in Frankenstein of a being who was created into a monster after being vilified by those who parented him, making them the real monsters. This led her to delve more deeply in the novel and write about the objectification and expendability yet the beauty of women in the novel presented by Shelley, who was raised by parents with feministic ideals. Shannon is extremely excited to share her paper with you and cannot wait to listen to the papers of the other students!

Shannon will be reading her paper “Frankenism” during the 2nd block in Session G, in a workshop called “Feminist Readings of Frankenstein.”  The session will take place in the Boardroom on the 2nd floor across from the Library in the Headmaster’s office suite.
