Professor Amy H. Sturgis and Lecturer Travis Prinzi have been hard at work making improvements to their upcoming course “Taking Harry Seriously: The Artistry and Meanings of the Harry Potter Saga.” Today, this labor has paid off for students in the shape of a brand new course outline and booklist! Dr. Sturgis has this to say about the upcoming class:
Marketing and merchandising is fine, but the primary reason behind the phenomenal success of Harry Potter rests with the texts themselves and their timeless message. I can’t wait to delve into the artistry and meaning of the series with students from all over the world!
