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.

Hitchhikers Guide

Carrollians have long recognised the influence of Lewis Carroll’s work in Douglas Adams’ sci-fi comedy The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. After extensive research, Sarah Stanfield can now reveal that it is not only his emphasis on the importance of the number ‘42’ and use of the word ‘fits’ that show that Adams borrowed from Wonderland, Looking Glass, the Snark and even earlier writings of Lewis Carroll. Don’t panic – come and hear what else Sarah has found.

Lewis Carroll in Numberland: Exploring Dodgson’s
mathematical world

by Robin Wilson

If Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) hadn’t written the ‘Alice’ books’ he would probably be remembered as a pioneer photographer and also as a mathematician. But which branch of mathematics was he interested in – and how good a mathematician was he? In this illustrated talk Robin Wilson will summarise Dodgson’s mathematical life and works in the context of Victorian Oxford. No knowledge of mathematics is assumed.
