Course Information

Do you know what Quidditch, Muggles and Apparition mean? If so, it’s clear you may be suffering from a Potter addiction. Why not channel your Potter-mania by enrolling in this class.

In this course, you will use the Harry Potter series (both the novels and their film adaptations) to explorenotions of dichotomy, such as good and evil, as well as learning about a range of literary conventions, such as archetypes, allusion, intertextuality and symbolism. By analysing and examining JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series, you will gain an understanding of the ways in which we can read and interpret texts and how we can apply different critical lenses to texts when we read them. You will demonstrate your understandings through responding, creating and via an oral presentation.
