MuggleNet Academia Lesson 44: “Is there such a thing as Harry Potter Canon anymore?”

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 and Cormoran Strike 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. We also dissect the Cormoran Strike mystery detective series as the books are being released, helping readers understand and appreciate the writings of the modern-day Dickens, J.K. Rowling.

In this lesson, we discuss Wizarding World tsunami of new material and other work from Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling and whether or not we should consider these storylines as part of the Potter canon. Cursed Child, a play that Rowling has had a hand in bringing to the stage will debut this summer and be published as a play simultaneously. Fantastic Beasts, the first of a series of films written by Rowling, rolls out this fall, and the continuous outpouring of information and backstory from Pottermore.

Joining hosts Keith Hawk and John Granger is Professor John Mark Reynolds from The St. Constantine School in Houston, Texas and MuggleNet Staff member and co-host of Alohomora, Alison Siggard.

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