The Mad Hatter's Tea Party (Wednesdays, 2:00pm-4:00pm)  

Join us for a lively discussion of topics tangentially related to Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” It will be a truly mad, Mad, MAD Tea Party: with sense and nonsense, meaning and word games, self-reference and “An After-Dinner Speech on After Dinner Speaking,” all served on fine china, with flatware, linens and table decorations. Enjoy six afternoons of tinkling tea cups and texts on treacle tears, big bangs, gestalt numbers, genetic epistemology and homemade butters and jams, clotted creams and curds, fruit conserves, and the nature and history of mathematics. Quaff logic and set theory. Devour dainty little finger sandwiches. Partake of pastries and post-modernism, tarts, subatomic particles and other exquisite delicacies. Engage in uncountable conversations with Prof. Paradox “At the Limits of Socially Acceptable Intercourse with Three Sisters” (which has been known to lead to infinite regresses, strange loops and identity disorders). Class size limit: 18.

Suggested Reading: Any works by Lewis Carroll, such as: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, The Hunting of the Snark, Phantasmagoria, or Sylvia & Bruno.
