Summer course: Lewis Carroll’s Oxford and the Surprising Histories of Alice’s Wonderland

The University of Oxford offers a course about Lewis Carroll and his ‘Alice’ books this summer.

The course will explore Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass”, their origins in Oxford – town and gown, architecture, personalities, hidden histories and controversies. It will also cast a look beyond Oxford, to Alice’s further adventures in art and popular culture, science and politics and, finally, take a fresh look at the question of why, 150 years later, Alice is still so fascinating to us.

The course is part of the University of Oxford’s “Inspiring Oxford” summer school and is taught by dr. Franziska Kohlt, a well-known Lewis Carroll scholar.

Date: 14 to 20 July 2024
Location: Oxford, UK
Costs: from £1970
Registration: between 30 January and 1 May. (Don’t wait too long; this course fills up quickly!)
