Wotcher Harry Potter fans!
This sounds like a Harry Potter fan’s dream class! Look at this:
A university spokesman said: “This module places the Harry Potter novels in their wider social and cultural context.
“A number of themes will be explored, including the world of rituals, prejudice and intolerance in the classroom, bullying, friendship and solidarity and the ideals of and good citizenship.”
The module was created by Dr Martin Richardson, head of the Department of Education at Durham University.
He said the idea for the new module had been conceived in response to growing demand from the student body.
He said: “It seeks to place the series in its wider social and cultural context and will explore some fundamental issues such as the moral universe of the school.
“You just need to read the academic writing which started to emerge four or five years ago to see that Harry Potter is worthy of serious study.”
PAUSE: Martin Richardson?! I wonder if he’s related to Tim Richardson, a family of Harry Potter fans! Probably not though, I just thought that was funny…
