The Dead Ladies Show is a series of entertaining and inspiring talks about women who achieved amazing things against all odds, presented live in Berlin. This podcast is based on that series. Because women's history is everyone's history.
In this episode: FRANKENFRAUEN! Our four-part series of historic women with connections to the iconic gothic novel Frankenstein, in celebration of its centenary in 2018. Part Three: Bard College Berlin's Laura Scuriatti presents the amazing Ada Lovelace. Daughter of Shelley-pal Lord Byron, Ada Lovelace was a brilliant mathematician who is considered the first computer programmer.
See images of Ada and the computer-precursors she worked with in our show notes:
Check out the rest of our FRANKENFRAUEN series: Mary Wollstonecraft (philosopher and proto-feminist, also Mary Shelley’s mom), Frankenstein author Mary Shelley, and Elsa Lanchester (bohemian performer and character actor who knew everyone and appears as the Bride of Frankenstein in the 1935 film of the same name).
