"Hogwarts in America" Is Now Online

My latest critical essay, "Hogwarts in America," which focuses on the "History of Magic in North America" and "Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry" essays on Pottermore that serve as prologue to Fantastic Beasts, is now on online here at Reason.

(This is the essay to which I referred in my recent interview on the MuggleNet Academia podcast.)

Thanks for letting me share!

I really enjoyed the essay--I'm so glad you took this topic on with your knowledgeable thoroughness!!!

I'm not in the HP fandom anymore, but when the new Pottermore stuff came out I was so annoyed and frustrated with Rowling all over again, especially given how, if she only HAD done the research, the work would have been SO. MUCH. MORE. interesting. As it is, all of the metas I have seen, especially those by NA fans who know from whence they speak, break my heart both for how JK took his on and for what we could have had.

Oh, thank you so much for your kind words! I really appreciate your reading it.

YES! YES! Well said. You've described exactly where I am in my thoughts, too.
