The CiRCE Institute is proud to announce the launch of a new podcast collaboration with Noah Tetzner, host of the popular podcast, The History of Vikings (and a former homeschooled student). Victoria's World is a fifteen-episode series that will explore life and death during one of the most important periods in world history. Through interviews with scholars, biographers, and artists, the show will consider everyday life during Queen Victoria's reign, the battles that shaped the kingdom, the artists who gave voice to the people, and much more.
Don't miss a chance to cast your vote in round two of our Leading Ladies of Literature Bracket!
(Voting in rounds 2 begins at 11pm EST on 3/14)
It's March, which means it's time for March Madness, which means it's time for a new CiRCE literature bracket! This year, we've pitted some of the greatest examples of children's literature up against each other. Thirty-two great children's books, five rounds, all leading to one champion. Or at least one most-favorite book? Either way, there's some hard choices ahead. Best to gear up.
Have you pondered joining a CiRCE Apprenticeship? Would you like to talk with someone who has? Join program director, Cathy Rape, on March 3rd at 8:00 pm EST, as she discusses this mentoring community with a recent graduate and a current apprentice. Time will be reserved at the end to answer questions.
Every summer we invite fifteen people to come spend a week with us in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. It's a time to recharge, discuss, and learn in community (and eat great food!)
Enjoy this glimpse of our time this past June. To learn more and sign-up for next year, click HERE.
