Now that the seven-book series is complete and eight movies have been screened, Harry Potter fans have a chance to step back and delve more deeply into the saga which experts have called "the shared text" of this generation. Participants in this unique Harry Potter immersion will learn to use interpretive keys such as alchemy to read the books at a deeper level and will experience how it helps our reading to learn traditional literary archetypes, such as the shapeshifter and the shadow. The class will concentrate on Deathly Hallows, comparing and contrasting how the book and the movies complement one another in exploring the deeper meanings of scenes and characters. Along the way, students will have a chance to discover their Patronus, use a Marauder's Map on a Hogwarts scavenger hunt, walk a labyrinth, and even play a bracing game of Quidditch.
