MuggleNet Academia 19: The History Hidden in Harry Potter

Nancy Reagin, History Professor at Pace University and editor of the brilliant Harry Potter and History, joins me, Keith Hawk, and student guests Elspeth Gordon-Smith and Gerardo Alverez for a rolliking conversation about all the history rolled into the Hogwarts Saga. Join us for discussion of the legendary and the true backdrops of the Statute of Secrecy, a look at the reasons why the Ministry is the Wizarding World’s chief employer, Medieval Manuscripts, IRA bombings and Death Eaters, and, yes, Voldemort and Hitler. If you love history or if you just want to learn the extra dimension the Muggle-world backdrops give our favorite books, this is a show you won’t want to miss!
