This seminar was led by Dr Gail Nina Anderson and looked at the way film has depicted the female body, via scientific and medical mutation, modification and even construction from scratch as represented through classic films such as The Stepford Wives and Bride of Frankenstein. The Stepford Wives was screened in full at the end of the second seminar.
