Things are about to get Curiouser...

John Tenniel Rabbit

If you're reading this, you've just fallen down one deep rabbit hole.


The internet is a pretty crazy place. It's very easy to get lost in it. Many of the people that you meet are very rude. Most of the things you see and read don't make any sense. And even though it can't make you grow taller or shorter, (except perhaps by spine compression if you sit in front of a computer for too long) the internet is a lot like Wonderland. This site is dedicated to exploring two questions: 1) how the experience of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Chapters 5, 6, and 7) changes when experienced through the medium of the internet and 2) how this medium can be used to track how Wonderland has evolved in readers' imaginations.

Have fun, click around, and contact me if you have any questions! (Lauren.Millikan@alumni.carleton.edu)
Be careful, though! Things aren't always as they seem down here. After all, "I'm mad, you're mad, we're all mad here. If you weren't mad you wouldn't have come." - the Cheshire Cat


Navigating the Site

There are six main sections to my site: The "About" Section, The Four "Evolution" Sections (the Text, the Images, Criticism, and Alice in other media) and the "Footnotes" Section. Clicking on one of the names on the sidebar will take you to the "Intro" page of each section.

There is no "correct" way to go through this site. You may be more interested in some sections than others. You very well may click on a link that takes you out of this site to another, which in turn takes you to another, and so on, and never get back. That's ok. That's what Wonderland is like.

If you want some suggestions, I would say start in the "About" of section if you want to do some reading, the "Images" section if you want to look at pictures, and the "Other Media" section if you want to watch some movie clips. If you need to brush up on you Alice, start in the "Texts" section.

Or, if you just want to get a taste of site, but in no particular order, you can take the "Rabbit Trail." Just click on the White Rabbit whenever you see him.
