LCS- Frankenstien

Broadly conceived, the task of science fiction is not to predict the future but rather to contemplate our present cultural moment in tandem with future techno-scientific possibilities. ”A branch of literature,” writes Isaac Asimov in 1953, “concerned with the impact of scientific advance upon human beings” by blending future technological possibilities and our current emotional realities.

With either Children of the New World or Frankenstein as your primary text, make an argument (700-900words) as to how either text (or both) can function as a meditation on our current cultural moment. I.e., e.g, make an argument as to why Frankenstein remains relevant, 200+years after its first publication.
