MuggleNet Academia Lesson 32: "Medieval Motifs in Harry Potter"

MuggleNet Academia is a comprehensive insight into the literary thematic elements and scholastic endeavors that author J.K. Rowling has provided in her writings of the Harry Potter series.

We look through the entire Harry Potter series for various elements in alchemy, literary components, composition attributes, as well as available classes at Universities and Colleges around the world, and various unique studies that are being implemented today.

In this lesson, we unpack the classical and medieval ideas and symbols that are embedded in and across the Hogwarts Saga as shared by Professor Rhonda Dubec of Lakehead University in Ontario Canada. We hope to introduce the real Middle Ages, to explore the symbols, culture, and metaphysics of this time as it finds expression in Hogwarts.

Our student guests for this show are Nadia Mulvihill, an English Literature graduate and English Teacher from upstate New York, and Aaron Schwartz, a classically trained musician and vocal instructor from Southern California.

We hope you enjoy the show. Thank you for listening.
