MuggleNet Academia

Join us in our latest Academic Lesson from the world of magic and intrigue 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 Nancy Reagin, Professor of History and women's and gender studies at Pace University, along with this week's two student guests - Elspeth Gordon-Smith, who is a student at University of Glasgow, and Gerardo Alvarez, a History student at Buffalo State. In this week's lesson we show the history of the wizarding world within the 'Harry Potter' series as compared to the symbolic and historical references from the Muggle world. Pull up a butter beer and treacle tart as this was one sweet show.

MuggleNet Academia is a podcast from the staff of the World's No. 1 Harry Potter website, MuggleNet.com. Enjoy the show!
