Alice in Fashion

Branching off of what Ellie mentioned about Kendall Jenner on the cover of Vogue, Alice in Wonderland is a frequent fashion and art inspiration!

I’m sorry that there are so many links, but once I started looking for more fashion and art things about Alice, I found myself going farther and farther down the rabbit hole! These are very interesting though, and I did not expect to find such a plethora examples of Alice inspired fashion and art!

FSEM selfie contest

I got this from the director of the FSEM:

#MyFSEMSelfie Contest Update

You’ve been challenged to take a creative class selfie that reflects the topic or an aspect of your seminar. Due to multiple inquiries, we are extending the deadline and announcing a prize: the winning class will get reserved front row seats at Rebecca Skloot’s Great Lives lecture in Spring 2016 and receive autographed copies of their group selfie with Skloot following the lecture.

As we were late in announcing the prize, we are extending the deadline to Friday, October 30. You can view current submissions at https://storify.com/UMaryWash/myfsemselfie.

If you have any questions, email social@umw.edu.

Philosophy Readings

What did everyone think about the essays we had to read? Was there a certain one that specifically pulled in, you really agreed or disagreed with? For me personally, I found the piece about the Cheshire Cat in Rick Mayock’s essay interesting. I had never considered before the silent interaction between Alice and the cat and how this affects the rest of the novel.

Alice at 150

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:
