UPDATE: Lesson 1: 'Getting Serious About Series' is now available in iTunes.
Recently we opened a new section on the MuggleNet website called Alohomora!, which features a new podcast, forum, quibbles, art and more as we recapture the magic of re-reading the Harry Potter books.
Today, we open another new section on MuggleNet called MuggleNet Academia. This new section will feature the academic study of literature that is found in the Harry Potter series; comparing the Harry Potter series to the great literary works through the ages, as well as other academic studies found within the books by the brilliant author, J.K. Rowling.
The MuggleNet Academia section will feature a regular podcast with our co-host, John Granger - 'The Hogwarts Professor'. Each show will feature a special guest speaker such as Professors, Doctors, Judges, and other experts in the field of Academia as well as a guest fan who is either currently studying literature in college, university, or has gratuated with a literature background.
Do you want to be on the show? Then head on over to our MuggleNet Academia section, follow the instructions and submit your background of study.
Are you beginning to ask yourself if this will be like the MuggleCast or Alohomora! podcast? The answer is NO! This is for a look into the academia aspects of the Harry Potter books only.
Head on over to the MuggleNet Academia Podcast section and listen to Lesson1: Getting Serious about Series, with special guest Professor Suzanne Keen from Washington & Lee University and Rosie Morris, senior student of Literature at Kent University in England. After listening to the Lesson 1, feel free to leave a comment on the MuggleNet Academia Main Page with your thoughts.
