Lewis Carroll Society Conference at the USC Libraries on Nov. 2
On Saturday, November 2, Lewis Carroll scholars and admirers will assemble inside USC's Doheny Memorial Library for a daylong exploration of how videogame designers, scientists, artists, graphic novelists—and USC students—have transformed the world of Alice in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll. The USC Libraries are hosting Lewis Carroll Outsiders, the fall 2013 meeting of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America, to mark the tenth anniversary of the USC Libraries Wonderland Award.
The USC Libraries' Abby Saunders will moderate a panel of USC students who have entered past Wonderland Award competitions and lead a tour of the libraries' G. Edward Cassady, M.D., and Margaret Elizabeth Cassady, R.N., Lewis Carroll Collection. Other participants include videogame designer American McGee; USC Provost’s Professor Henry Jenkins; graphic novelist Bryan Talbot; The Alice Project editor Dan Bergevin; and neuroscientist Christopher Tyler. For a full schedule, please visit the conference webpage.
All sessions are free and open to USC students, faculty, and staff and will take place in the Friends of the USC Libraries Lecture Hall (Room 240). RSVP online, whether you plan to attend a single session or the entire day of events.
