Welcome to the Unbinding Prometheus Project

Unbinding Prometheus is an arts and humanities education project bringing scholars from across the University of Pennsylvania together with global institutions, artists and communities of learning. Together we create ongoing spaces for innovative interdisciplinary research and public educational programming. Our inaugural, year-long project focuses on Percy Bysshe Shelley, with special emphasis on his lyrical drama, Prometheus Unbound.
