A-Harry Pottering We Will Go

My summer "professorial plans" are complete. Beyond teaching "The Hunger Games and Worlds Gone Wrong: The Dystopian Tradition" for Belmont University, I'll also be teaching "Hogwarts 101: Exploring Harry Potter, Years 1-3" for the newly-created Mythgard Academy.

The Academy is an online, intensive, three-week literature and writing program designed for rising high-school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Students in Academy courses will engage in live, interactive classes with college professors (such as yours truly), delving into the works of fantasy that they love and respect most. The Academy provides all students with personal writing instructors who will hold individual tutorial sessions every week to discuss students’ writing. The Academy also will offer something unique: an optional on-campus experience at Washington College during Mythgard Summer Camp.

You can read more about my Harry Potter course here. This semester's experience with my graduate Harry Potter class has been exceptional, and I'm delighted to be working with the Mythgard Institute again!

And now, for your amusement:

Speaking of mashups, I'm still waiting for someone to use The Weasel King's glorious song "Through and Through," about Harry Potter's loyalty to Albus Dumbledore, for either a songvid or a fan fiction story about post-Reichenbach John Watson.
"Is this goodbye? Is this farewell to you?
I'm still your man, through and through."

Oh, thanks so much! Between that and the Hugo nomination, we're totally chuffed.
