Here's the official press release: "Amy H. Sturgis Joins Mythgard, Harry Potter Course."
Founded and led by Dr. Corey Olsen, a.k.a. "The Tolkien Professor," The Mythgard Institute is harnessing the potential of new media to change the landscape of higher education. The Mythgard Institute is dedicated to making a rigorous, dynamic, and interactive educational experience possible for students around the world through the latest online technology. I'm most excited to be on board with this innovative institute, teaching a course that is near and dear to me, and working with my colleague and friend, Travis Prinzi.
I'll share more details as they become available! I will also be teaching my undergraduate and graduate seminars in Liberal Studies for Lenoir-Rhyne University. In Spring 2012, I'll be offering seminars on "Native American Myth and Contemporary Film and Fiction."
"Sturgis!" gasped Hermione, looking thunderstruck.
"Sorry?" said Ron, looking bewildered.
