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

The University of Oxford again organises a Summer School course about Lewis Carroll and his works. This year’s course is called “Lewis Carroll’s Oxford and the Surprising Histories of Alice’s Wonderland”

This one-week course is part of The Oxford Experience, a residential summer programme aimed at non-specialists.

The course will explore Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’ books, their origins in Oxford, its architecture, personalities, hidden histories and controversies. It will also cast a look beyond Oxford, to reimaginations in art and popular culture, science and politics, and take a look at the question of why Alice is still so fascinating to us.
