The updated schedule for next week is here.
I’ve mentioned a few times that AIW is 150 years old this year, which has led to projects like this and exhibits like this. Because Harvard owns a lot of Lewis Carroll materials, The Boston Globe has been printing articles about the books and author. Claire’s mom has been sending her clippings that Claire shared with me. I couldn’t access some of them online for everyone to see, but I did get this one about the incredible number of translations of the Alice books: article on alice translations. I was actually lucky enough to see the Harvard exhibit in person this summer, so I’m also including here a few of my own (not very good) photos:
navigate from one place to another,
interpret words that sound like English but seem to be nonsensical,
solve problems and puzzles,
gain authority when everyone else seems to have great power,
make herself heard,
determine which rules to follow and which to challenge,
judge whose advice is trustworthy,
and interrogate the very nature of things without losing her own self.
In all of these ways, her experience is arguably a lot like … well … College.
