MuggleNet Academia Lesson 43: “Tris Transfigured: Allegiant meets 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 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 the recent cinematic release of the Divergent Series: Allegiant with special emphasis on the similarities and contrasts between Veronica Roth's written material and Lionsgate's cinematic journey. We also dive into the thematic similarities found within the Divergent and Potter series with psychological aspects from the different sorting structures. Our special guest on this lesson is our good friend Professor Louise Freeman of Mary Baldwin College in Virginia and our student guest is Hanako Ricks, who is a mega fan of both series as well as a podcast co-host for the Sci-Fi Party Line.

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