dc.description.abstractThe term “Frankenstein foods” is an interesting and unique phenomenon. The term represents ideas and themes transported over two hundred years from the novel Frankenstein (Shelley, 1818) to contemporary critical discourse about biotechnology. Most studies of Frankenstein’s endurance have focused on the novel’s intrinsic literary form, that is, its reception history, adaptations, interpretations, its publication, or its canonical status as a classic. However, this thesis is a history of ideas that offers a unique examination of Frankenstein’s endurance in mythical form as the Frankenstein myth. A thematic network reveals a chain of ideologies that connects the original Frankenstein myth to contemporary discourse about biotechnology.en_US
