Today is the last day of ‘Being Human’, the only UK festival of the Humanities. If you happen to be in Dundee, don’t pass up the opportunity of catching up with Frankenstein in the ‘Dead Dundee’ tour! Here is the invite from the organisers:

“A tongue-in-cheek ‘Dead Dundee’ guided tour hosted by Mary Shelley and friends. The Frankenstein author believed a good Gothic novel should ‘curdle the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart’. The tour will revisit places the young Shelley would have known in the 1810s as well as sites that continue to inspire gothic writers and artists. Taking in RSS Discovery, Dundee Science Centre, the gothic Revival Cathedral, the eerie River Tay and other Dundonian landmarks, this walking tour ends at the atmospheric Howff Cemetery. Join us among the rubble of old Dundee as we reanimate the dead in a bravura feat of storytelling. Expect surprise cameos. Part of University of Dundee’s Mary Shelley’s Dundee: reanimating a city series of events.”
