Through the Looking-Glass Sesquicentenary Conference

I am very excited to announce that the Call for Papers for the Through Looking-Glass Sesquicentenary Conference is now live!
The conference will be fully-online, and hosted by the University of York from 4 – 5th November 2021.

Our confirmed keynote speakers will be historian of photography, and curator at the National Gallery of Art, Dr Diane Waggoner, and award-winning author, collector, and long-standing Carroll scholar Charlie Lovett.

The Looking-Glass itself will be the focal point of the conference. Aiming to explore the significance of the mirror in literature, science, theology, art and other fields, it will explore any facets of this concept that were relevant to ideas that shaped Carroll’s
work, or, which have since been integral to its interpretation at different points in time.

We particularly also invite reflections from practitioners, including creators of adaptations of the text, professionals in translation, museum studies, librarians, fashion, as well as from performers and interpreters, authors, poets and illustrators.

Abstracts for presentations of up to 300 words, including up to 5 keywords, should be sent to by 15 June 2021, and contributors will be invited to submit proposals for publication after the conference.

For more information please have a look at our shiny new website!

We are very much looking forward to your contributions – and to seeing you all in November!
