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.

Dr Simon Hewitt 'What the Tortoise Said to Achilles'
Lewis Carroll's paper

specialist interest in Metaphysics and Mind and Philosophy
of Religion will introduce Carroll's
paper and relate it to subsequent discussions in philosophy and the contemporary
revival of interest amongst logicians. He
will also (he tells us) 'hopefully
have something to say about how we might get out of the worry towards which
Carroll tempts us!' Friday 2 June 2017
in Wonderland: Consuming George Eliot's curiouser mathematical images'
Lewis Carroll and George
Eliot had a number of things in common. Both were novelists publishing their
novels at roughly the same time, novels much consumed by Victorians. Both were
What Eliot's imagery
shares with Carroll's is that there is usually some more subtle mathematics
lying behind them. What perhaps is distinctive about Eliot's sometimes outrageousimages is that they are almost invariably associated with the tragicomedy in
Derek Ball obtained a
mathematics degree in 1964 and is now a student at Leicester University, and
has nearly completed a PhD in the Victorian Studies department, with the title 'Mathematics in George Eliot's novels'.
