The Media History seminar & Nineteenth Century Studies seminar are pleased to be holding a special joint session titled “Alice in Cableland.” 2016 sees the 150th anniversaries of the successful laying of the Atlantic Cable and the publication of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. The team on the AHRC-funded project “Scrambled Messages: The Telegraphic Imaginary 1857-1900” will be thinking about the issues involved in coding, cabling and communications technologies through the medium of John Tenniel's illustrations of Carroll's classic.

The panel will include Anne Chapman (PhD Candidate, KCL), Caroline Arscott (Professor of Art History, The Courtauld Institute of Art), Clare Pettitt (Professor of Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture, KCL), Natalie Hume (PhD Candidate, The Courtauld Institute of Art), and Cassie Newland (Postdoctoral Researcher, KCL).
