Subject: Math and culture

We have a free "hilarious" math newsletter, and each issue has a theme of some kind, usually in history. The first issue, two years ago, treated both Alice in Wonderland and Romeo and Juliet, but it's not now available on-line. Typical issues are dated in the past. For example, recent issues have been dated 1275 in China (featuring Marco Polo), 1480 BC in Crete (retelling the story of the minotaur and the labyrinth), and 800AD in Baghdad (referring to the Arabian Nights). The current issue is contemporary, but the next one will be dated 1855 in Ireland, and the one after that 256 AD in Guatamala. The subject are in general historical rather than literary, but seen to be of interest to young people. You can view the Gnarly Gnews at http://www.gnarlymath.com/news/gnews1_1.html
