Franziska Kohlt explores Carroll’s intellectual engagement
with Victorian Psychiatry and reveals how characters such as Wonderland’s Hatter reveal parallels with popular contemporary imagery of insanity. This talk provide an opportunity to view Lewis Carroll’s familiar writings, outside the genre children’s literature, as part of the wider Victorian discourse of the sciences of the mind.
