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.

This paper will trace some of the ways in which Lewis Carroll’s Alice Adventures in Wonderland (1865) was taken up with psychedelic and countercultural contexts during the 1960s. Using Jonathan Miller’s 1965 television adaptation as a starting point, it will focus on how the story’s portrayal of the heightened and altered perspectives of childhood and the natural world provided a fitting model for the countercultural pastoral, identifying a “mood” and set of thematic tropes that would inform several psychedelic films and records of the period.

Dr Sophia Satchell-Baeza is a writer, lecturer and occasional programmer. Her PhD thesis at King’s College London looked at British psychedelic films and light shows of the Long 1960s, and was supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. She is an Associate Lecturer at London College of Communication, and an Associate Research Fellow at the Cinema and Television History Research Institute at De Montford University, Leicester. She teaches on a range of Film and Animation modules at King’s College London, London South Bank University and the University of Hertfordshire.
