Weekly Round-Up: Shakespeare Edition, 2-10-17

OK Corelings, we want to make a bet (mostly because we know we will win). What if we told you we could fill an entire round-up with current Shakespeare-related news and still keep it interesting?

Weekly Round-Up, 1-27-17

Good afternoon, scholars. How was your first full week of classes? If it involves Core, then it was probably the height of excitement. A cooking blog called The Little Library Cafe features recipes based on books, including titles by Virginia Woolf, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare. We’re hoping that the chocolate eclairs based on Mrs. […]

Weekly Round-Up, 1-6-17

Greetings, earthlings–we mean Corelings. This week we’re ushering in the new year with a star-studded link round-up. Today (1/6) is the Epiphany, by the way–the day that commemorates the visit of the three Magi to the child Jesus. As Core scholars may recall, the three kings, or wise men as they are sometimes called, followed […]

Weekly Round-Up, 12-30-16

Goodness, what a year. We’re lucky all of our Core authors are long since deceased; otherwise, we’d be in a mess of trouble. But no matter. We’ve got a end-of-the-year wrap-up to usher in the long-awaited new year. (That’s a lotta hyphens…) Did you know that ancient Sumerians interpreted the constellation Orion as the epic […]

Weekly Round-Up, 12-23-16

Hello hello, Corelings! What, did you think the Weekly Round-Up would be on hiatus during this hibernation period we call Winter Break? Of course not. Knowledge never rests. Christopher Wordsworth, the great-great-great-great grandson of William Wordsworth, is currently campaigning to protect the Lake District that inspired the Romantic poet. The National Grid plans to build […]

Weekly Round-Up, 12-16-16
