It's back to school time for the LADA! We are fortunate that one of our members, Melissa Aaron a Professor at Cal Poly Pomona will be teaching her first Harry Potter literature course this fall and has agreed to give us a lecture of the literary significance of the HP series for the college student and a Q&A session afterwards. For those LADA members up to it, we will be going to Grub Restaurant after the event (please bring cash).
Here is the Professor's bio:
Melissa D. Aaron is a Professor in the Dept. of English and Foreign Languages at Cal Poly Pomona. She received her Ph.D from UW-Madison in Renaissance dramatic literature. Her book Global Economics: An institutional economic history of the Chamberlain's/King's Men and their plays, 1599- 1642, was published by University of Delaware Press in 2005. Her research is on Shakespeare and economics and all-women Shakespeare companies. In the Harry Potter fandom, Professor Aaron has developed a specialty in werewolves, as “Moonyprof.” She represented Professor Lupin at the Hogwart’s Best: Teacher of the Year panel at LUMOS in 2006, and has given several papers on Lupin and werewolves: “’Said He Was a Wolf: Professor Lupin meets the Duchess of Malfi,” The Witching Hour, 2005; “New Moon, Full Moon, Wolfsbane Potion and Fursploding Boys: werewolves in the Harry Potter books and the Twilight saga,” Azkatraz, 2009; and “My, what big eyes you have: Lupin, Greyback, and the modern werewolf revival,” Infinitus, 2010.
