MEETINGS AND EVENTS
Lewis Carroll Society Christmas Celebration
Art Workers' Guild, 6 Queen Square, London, WC1N 3AT
14 December 2013
Our usual celebration, with great food, great company, entertainment, quiz, etc.
This year we have chosen "The Hunting of the Snark" as our theme ... which will extend to the entertainment (which will include an 'illuminated reading' of the poem, quiz and decorations ... and we hope some members will attend in appropriate costumes.
As always there will be our spectacular buffet, but to help us cater for the right number of people, please let us know if you are coming.
We encourage members to pay in advance as it is never feels right collecting money from members during the party! We prefer a cheque (made payable to The Lewis Carroll Society - and sent to 50 Lauderdale Mansions, Lauderdale Road, London, W9 1NE), but members may also pay online in the LCS Online Shop.

The Common Denominator
University of Leipzig
20 to 22 March 2014
The aim of this three-day interdisciplinary conference is to bring together researchers from diverse academic and professional disciplines. By establishing mathematics as the common denominator between the individual panels, the links between mathematics and cultural studies are brought into focus. The conference will explore the reception and representation of mathematical concepts across such diverse fields as popular culture, literature, linguistics and didactics.
We do not know, as yet, if any of the paper will refer to Lewis Carroll, but we think the conference might interest LCS members.
