MuggleNet Academia (general)

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.

Once again, the MuggleNet Academia team of host Keith Hawk, managing editor for MuggleNet, and co-host John Granger, the Hogwarts Professor, brings our fans the latest in academic discussions within the Hogwarts saga.

In this lesson, we are joined by author of Snape: A Definitive Reading, Lorrie Kim to discuss the live and times of our favorite Hogwarts Professor to love and hate, Professor Severus Snape. We examine his upbringing, school years, and a variety of takeaways from the readings in all seven books. Certainly a lively conversation at Chestnut Hill College during the Harry Potter Weekend in Philadelphia, PA.

Joining us on our panel today is returning Potter pundits, Professor Louise Freeman from Mary Baldwin University, and Professor Emily Strand from Mount Carmel College of Nursing.

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

In this interview, we discuss the game's history and play as well as the tournament layout for Gen Con 2015.
