Join us in this latest Academic Lesson from the world created by author J.K. Rowling as we dive into the literature of the 'Harry Potter' series.
Host Keith Hawk from MuggleNet is joined with co-host John Granger, the Hogwarts Professor and author of the Deathly Hallows Lectures, as we share insights into the literature series of author J.K. Rowling. On this show we are joined by Professor Chris Gavaler from Washington and Lee University in Virginia and student guest Corentin Faniel from the University of St. Andrews. This academic lesson moves at the speed of single bullet as we discuss the correlations of the comic book superhero and whether or not we can see similar characteristics from 'The Boy Who Lived' in the Hogwarts Saga. From trademark makings and costumes, vigilante plot lines, and the traditional orphan status to the Golden and Silver age of the comic book heroes like Superman, Batman, and even…the Klu Klux Klan? Hold on to your broomsticks, this is a high flying and lightening fast show.
