About The Lewis Carroll Society

The Lewis Carroll Society was formed in 1969 with the aim of encouraging research into the life and works of Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson). The Society has members around the world, including many leading libraries and institutions, authors, researchers and many who simply enjoy Carroll's books and want to find out more about the man and his work. Why not join the LCS - for your own interest and entertainment or to make a contribution to Carroll scholarship? Our subscriptions are remarkably low for a society of this nature.

'Alice in 1932: Looking Back at the Lewis Carroll Centenary'
By Will Brooker
Gradidge Room (First Floor) at The Art Workers’ Guild, 6 Queen Square, London, WC1N 3AT 6:30 for 7pm

The 1932 centenary of Lewis Carroll’s birth marks a key point in the way the author and his work were discussed, interpreted and understood. By 1932, the Alice books had been adapted to cinema, adopted into advertising and incorporated into a society very different from the 1860s Britain in which they were first published. Carroll, who died in 1898, was already considered a literary 'immortal', and his work was associated with a nostalgic past, yet he also remained within living memory, recalled by people who had known him when they were children: while the 'real Alice’, Mrs Hargreaves, was still alive, an elderly lady enjoying a new celebrity. This talk, based on a study of hundreds of original documents from the period, examines what Lewis Carroll and Alice meant at the time.

'Healing through the Looking-glass: Lewis Carroll and Homeopathy'
By Francis Treuherz
Gradidge Room (First Floor) at The Art Workers’ Guild, 6 Queen Square, London, WC1N 3AT (Time to be confired)

Francis has been in practice as a homeopath since 1984. He was for many years Hon Secretary of the Society of Homeopaths and Editor of their journal. He has written on homeopathy extensively and lectured about it all over the world. His private collection numbers more than 10,500 books on the subject, and a museum collection of portraits, busts, medals, phials, medicine cases and more. Lewis Carroll knew about homeopathy from childhood, as an adult, he used it to alleviate his own symptoms and those of his child friends, and he had many books on the subject in his library. An examination of this intriguing subject will shine a light on a side of Lewis Carroll not often examined. Please note that this meeting is on a Thursday.
