Exploring J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter Universe

J. K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series (1997–2007) has turned into a global phenomenon and her Potterverse is still expanding. The contributions in this volume provide a range of inter- and transdisciplinary approaches to various dimensions of this multifacetted universe. The introductory article focuses on different forms of world building in the novels, the translations, the film series and the fandom. Part I examines various potential sources for Rowling's series in folklore, the Arthurian legend and Gothic literature. Further articles focus on parallels between the "Harry Potter" series and Celtic Druidism, the impact Victorian notions of gender roles have had on the representation of the Gaunt family, the reception of (medieval and Early Modern) history in the series and the influence of Christian concepts on the world view expressed in the novels. Part II focuses on a range of prominent political and social themes in the series, including conspiracy, persecution and terror, racism as well as the role of economic, social and cultural capital. Other articles explore the concept of a Magical Criminal Law and its consequences as well as the significance of secrets and forbidden places. The articles in Part III go beyond the novels by taking the stage play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child", the movie "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them", Pottermore and fan fiction into account. Main topics in this part include trauma theory/PTSD, queerbaiting, a 'post'-colonial analysis of the representation of Native Americans in Rowling's "History of Magic in North America" and the depiction of violence, incest and rape in fan fictions. The concluding article highlights the diversification of the Potterverse and analyses strategies informing its ongoing expansion.

Winnie-the-Pooh is ‘The Bear for all Ages’, and now he’s more fun than ever before. Join in The Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet! Pooh's Way of doing things seems strangely close to the ancient principle of Taoist philosophy, while Piglet exhibits the very important principle in Taoism of the Te, meaning Virtue of the Small. The author's explanations of Taoism and Te through Pooh and Piglet show that this is not an ancient and remote philosophy but something that you can use, here and now.

Alexander Lenard, voyant que ses élèves rechignaient un peu à étudier le latin, entreprit pour eux de traduire Winnie-the-Pooh d'Alan Alexander Milne. Publié de manière confidentielle en 1958, Winnie Ille Pu connut pourtant un succès phénoménal au point qu'il reste le seul ouvrage en latin à être entré dans la liste des best-sellers du New-York Times ! Loin des clichés des dessins animés, on découvre dans ces pages la fantaisie et la poésie d'un trésor de la littérature pour enfants et dont on propose ici la première édition française intégrale. Christopher Robin et son fameux ourson Winnie, Ticochon, Hibou, Lapin, Hi-Han, Kangou et Rou, et tous les autres animaux vivent des aventures incroyables et s'expriment dans un latin drôlement impeccable que les débutants ou les savants, les petits ou les grands ne manqueront pas de savourer.
