Held in the Pantheon in Rome and near Venice, Dr. Core’s lectures addressed the geographical settings of Shakespearean plays as well as the construction and design of the Pantheon. Sharing her insight on cultural geography, Dr. Core explored the significance of Shakespeare’s selection of certain cities for his Italian plays.

Throughout his works, Shakespeare frequently used ancient Rome, Venice, and Renaissance Italy to consider questions of love, honor, freedom and self-government.

The Shakespeare in Italy program is facilitated through the University of Dallas’s Eugene Constantin Campus in Due Santi, a historic district south of Rome near the cities of Marino and Frattocchie.

Dr. Core holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science, a Ph.D. in human geography and a Juris Doctorate from West Virginia University.
