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.

Lewis Carroll and the Animal Question
Zoe Jaques

Dr Zoe Jaques, who is Fellow in Education and Children's Literature, Homerton College, University of Cambridge, will explain how Carroll's personal interest in animal rights emerges in his books to reveal a philosophy tht aligns as much with modern takes on the subjectivity of animals as it does with mid-19th century questions on the rights of Man.
