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. 

This is Lesson 23: 'There and Back Again: Chiasmus, Alchemy, and Ring Composition in Harry Potter.' Hosts Keith Hawk and John Granger are joined with four esteemed special guests, Rochelle Deans, William Sprague, Kelly Kerr, and Steven Lee. Together we discuss the incredible structure formations found with in the Harry Potter book series. Did Rowling base this structure on Tolkien, Lewis, or perhaps even Dante? Or is JKR just a huge Obsessive Compulsive in structure herself? Listen in and find out what we think.

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.

MuggleNet Academia held our LIVE show as the Keynote Luncheon from the fantastic MISTI-Con Harry Potter fan convention in Laconia, New Hampshire. Host Keith Hawk from MuggleNet is joined with co-host John Granger, the Hogwarts Professor and author of the Deathly Hallows Lectures, and Special Guest Speaker Janet Scott Batchler, Professional Screenwriter, Director, and Professor of Writing at the University of Southern California.

In this show, we analyze the Harry Potter book series to the film adaptations. What does it take to adapt a book to screen? Were the Harry Potter films successful at adapting or not? You may be surprised at what parts of the film were done well and which were done poorly. Why did we not win any Oscar awards if this is the most successful movie franchise in history? We give props to Chris Columbus, take questions from the audience, AND SO MUCH MORE!
