Event details Dr. M. Wendy Hennequin (Associate Professor of English at Tennessee State University, Nashville) will present a lecture entitled, "God for Harry, Hogwarts, and St. George: How J.K. Rowling Uses Medieval Saints' Lives in the Harry Potter Series." SYNOPSIS: J.K. Rowling borrows ideas, tropes, and conventions from many types of literature, but did you know that the Harry Potter series uses tropes and plot structures from medieval saints' stories? Dr. Hennequin will reveal how Rowling most significantly uses the plots of saints' stories when Harry fights Voldemort in the Chamber of Secrets and the Goblet of Fire (the second and fourth novels), and when Neville fights Voldemort in The Deathly Hallows. By using these saints' plots, Rowling reveals character, reinforces the core values of the texts, and identifies Harry with saints to reassure us of his inevitable victory.
