As suddenly as it had started, everything stopped. Harry lay facedown on the stone-cold floor, listening to Myrtle gurgling morosely in the end toilet. With difficulty, he kicked off his shoes and stood up. So this was what it felt like, being Goyle. His large hand trembling, he pulled off his old robes, which were hanging a foot above his ankles, pulled on the spare ones, and laced up Goyle's boatlike shoes. He reached up to brush his hair out of his eyes and met only the short growth of wiry bristles, low on his forehead. Then he realized that his glasses were clouding his eyes because Goyle obviously didn't need them - he took them off and called, "Are you two okay?" Goyle's low rasp of a voice issued from his mouth.

Hermione had become a bit more relaxed about breaking rules since Harry and Ron had saved her from the mountain troll, and she was much nicer for it. The day before Harry's first Quidditch match the three of them were out in the freezing courtyard during break, and she had conjured them up a bright blue fire that could be carried around in a jam jar. They were standing with their backs to it, getting warm, when Snape crossed the yard. Harry noticed at once that Snape was limping. Harry, Ron, and Hermione moved closer together to block the fire from view; they were sure it wouldn't be allowed. Unfortunately, something about their guilty faces caught Snape's eye. He limped over. He hadn't seen the fire, but he seemed to be looking for a reason to tell them off anyway.

Understanding Racism and Sexism in Harry Potter and Stuart Hall’s Model of Three Reading Positions

Understanding Racism and Sexism in Harry Potter and Stuart Hall’s Model of Three Reading Positions

“Males are represented more often, but they are also depicted as wiser, braver, more powerful, and more fun than females” (ibid.). Female powerlessness is most evident in the portrayal of Hermione, who often shows signs of fear. As an example Heilman cites the attack of the mountain troll when the boys have to save Hermione because she is merely crouching helplessly under the sink and screaming (Rowling 1999, 132). Heilman argues, somewhat inaccurately, that Hermione is supposed to be exceptionally intelligent, but not brave or daring. Further, her knowledge is only of use to the boys while she does not know how to use it or cannot use it. This can be explained through the understanding of Harry Potter as a mythic hero. Both Hermione and Ron are only helping Harry since he is the principal protagonist of the story (Nikolajeva 2003, 127). Although Heilman draws attention to such instances as the Polyjuice Potion which helps the boys to sneak into the Slytherin House, it does not work on Hermione so she has to stay behind; or when Hermione becomes ‘petrified’ but still manages to aid Harry and Ron with the help of a note in her hand which reveals the secret of Salazar’s successor. It is important to stress that in the final battle Harry always fights alone because Ron also fails half way. This happens at the end of each book: in The Philosopher’s Stone Ron sacrifices himself on the chessboard and Harry confronts Squirrel alone; in The Chamber of Secrets the ceiling of the tunnel collapses and Ron remains trapped; in The Prisoner of Azkaban Hermione helps Harry rescue Black and Buckbeak while Ron rests injured in the infirmary; in The Goblet of Fire Harry confronts Lord Voldemort while Ron and Hermione watch the competition from the stands for the spectators; in The Order of Phoenix Harry has several helpers, among them Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Neville, and Luna; in the sixth book, The Half-Blood Prince, Ron and Hermione stay at Hogwarts while Harry joins Dumbledore in his search for a part of Lord Voldemort’s soul. Another proof of Hermione’s bravery and daring is the scene in The Chamber of Secrets when she tries to convince the boys they should make the Polyjuice Potion:

Tensions between didacticism, entertainment and translatorial practices: deletion and omission in the Arabic translations of Harry Potter

This fantasy series consists of seven books published between 1997 and 2007. It begins with Harry as an infant, who is left in the care of his ‘Muggle’, or non-magical, relatives, Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon. In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (1997), Harry joins Hogwarts boarding School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as a first-year student at the age of eleven; here he meets his friends Ron and Hermione. The second book, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (1998), follows Harry’s struggle to save Ginny, who is kidnapped and taken into the Chamber of Secrets by Lord Voldemort. The third novel, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (1999), follows Harry’s third year in the school, where he meets some faithful old friends of his parents, including Sirius Black, and some traitors who betrayed his family, such as Peter Pettigrew, who was Lord Voldemort’s servant. In his fourth year at Hogwarts, in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2000), Harry takes part in a dangerous competition called the Triwizard Tournament; by the end of this book Lord Voldemort has regained his full strength. In his fifth year at Hogwarts, in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2003), Harry and his friends encounter and nearly defeat Lord Voldemort’s Death Eaters. In the sixth book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2005), Harry discovers that Voldemort became immortal through his creation of six ‘horcruxes’ where parts of his soul are kept within objects. Two of these horcruxes have been destroyed: one by Harry in the events of the Chamber of Secrets and the other by Dumbledore, Hogwarts’ headmaster, before the events of Half-Blood Prince. The final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2007), follows Harry’s development and maturation to the age of 17. With the help of his friends and supporters, Harry finally defeats Lord Voldemort and his followers and saves the wizard world.

The portrait swung forward to reveal a hole in the wall through which they all climbed. A crackling fire warmed the circular common room, which was full of squashy armchairs and tables. Hermione cast the merrily dancing flames a dark look, and Harry distinctly heard her mutter "Slave labor" before bidding them good night and disappearing through the doorway to the girls' dormitory. Harry, Ron, and Neville climbed up the last, spiral staircase until they reached their own dormitory, which was situated at the top of the tower. Five four-poster beds with deep crimson hangings stood against the walls, each with its owner's trunk at the foot. Dean and Seamus were already getting into bed; Seamus had pinned his Ireland rosette to his headboard, and Dean had tacked up a poster of Viktor Krum over his bedside table. His old poster of the West Ham football team was pinned right next to it.

Frazer, Wittgenstein and Harry Potter: an approach to the ritual manipulation of images

Frazer, Wittgenstein and Harry Potter: an approach to the ritual manipulation of images

I want to suggest that Harry Potter can help to focus the issue. I have in mind the episode at the opening of the second book in the series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. As usual, the book opens in the household of the Dursley family, Harry's unwilling guardians. An argument has broken out about the nocturnal disturbances created by Harry's owl, but the thread is broken by his cousin Dudley's demands for more bacon for his breakfast. He tells Harry to pass the frying pan and Harry replies «You've forgotten the magic word». The result is uproar in the household and Harry quickly clarifies «I meant "please"!», but it takes some time for the fuss to die down 25 . In the context of the book this is simply a joke, playing on Harry's ability to do «real» magic and the conventional English witticism naming «please» a «magic» word. But I want to suggest that it is a productive passage. The rituals of human societies, including the image rituals of Giuliano Guizzelmi, are much more like saying «please» than they are like the magic of Rowling's wizards. Indeed, as I have argued

Harry Potter Rowling, J K Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban pdf

Never, in anyone's memory, had a match approached in such a highly charged atmosphere. By the time the holidays were over, tension between the two teams and their Houses was at the breaking point. A number of small scuffles broke out in the corridors, culminating in a nasty incident in which a Gryffindor fourth year and a Slytherin sixth year ended up in the hospital wing with leeks sprouting out of their ears. Harry was having a particularly bad time of it. He couldn't walk to class without Slytherins sticking out their legs and trying to trip him up; Crabbe and Goyle kept popping up wherever he went, and slouching away looking disappointed when they saw him surrounded by people. Wood had given instructions that Harry should be accompanied everywhere he went, in case the Slytherins tried to put him out of action. The whole of Gryffindor House took up the challenge enthusiastically, so that it was impossible for Harry to get to classes on time because he was

represents the intense human struggle for both power and wisdom, recognition and introspection, grandeur and honour” (Pharr 54, italics in original). Very few of us are able to reach the balance of such dualisms, but they endure as goals to guide us towards our Possible Selves. This is because “the economical function of myth is to represent in liveable form the structure of the complexities through which we must find our way” (Bruner, On Knowing 33). The hero‟s story has the „thousand faces‟ made famous by Campbell‟s work, but it is still a story, that is, a narrative progression by which things happen to produce, to influence, and to demonstrate the hero in action. In this sense, the story always educates the hero, but when the story is also about the specific education of the hero, as in Harry Potter, it touches “one of the archetypal patterns of fantastic children‟s literature” (Maguire qtd. in Pharr 54). And when a work of what is primarily deemed as children‟s literature strikes a chord with readers of all ages, everyone joins in the pattern. The concept of Jungian archetypes will be discussed in various places in this chapter in an attempt to offer a possible, but by no means exclusive, interpretation of these patterns.

Issues and strategies of subtitling cultural references

Issues and strategies of subtitling cultural references Harry Potter movies in arabic

When dealing with subtitling of currency units in Harry Potter movies, the subtitler does not seem to have a clear strategy, as different subtitling strategies were applied for different cases. Loan ‘preservation’ strategy is used with the names of magical currency units, which are also neologisms or words borrowed from other domains. For example, ‘galleons’, as seen in snapshot (97), ‘sickles’ and ‘knuts’ are all preserved as ‘نولاج’, ‘لكيس’ and ‘تاتون’ respectively. It is worth noting here that the transliteration of the plural ‘knuts’ uses the affix ‘تا’ (āt), following the standard Arabic rule for pluralizing foreign nouns. Since these currency units are only related to the wizarding world, the Arabic audience would not be able to find out how much they are worth in Arabic currencies.

Yet the tension between the market and moral economies plays an integral part in Harry’s particular heroism. It is part of Harry’s heroism that he must navigate the compelling lure of materialism, especially when at age eleven he suddenly inherits his parent’s considerable wealth. As Harry enters the Hogwarts Express for the first time, he has a pocket full of money, but no family or friends. To this extent Ron Weasley offers a direct contrast in that he has a large family, but as a consequence his parents have very little money. It is a mark of Harry’s future status that he uses his money to create and celebrate his new friendship with Ron, sharing an exciting new gastronomical and cultural experience with him. During this feast of chocolate frogs, cauldron cakes and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, Ron helps Harry interpret and understand the wizarding society he is entering; subjects of a picture are active in a wizarding photograph and Albus Dumbledore is regarded as “the greatest wizard of modern times”, for example (HPPS 77, italics in original). But equally, the experience of giving is formative for Harry’s character, who, the narrator declares, “had never had anything to share before or, indeed, anyone to share it with. It was a nice feeling, sitting there, with Ron, eating their way through all Harry’s pasties and cakes” (76).

Issues and strategies of subtitling cultural references Harry Potter movies in arabic

Each movie covers a year of Harry’s life at Hogwarts School. Harry and his close friends, Hermione and Ron, have to experience many challenges, especially at the end of each movie. The first three movies are mainly dedicated to presenting different characters and their experiences, highlighting the childhood years at Hogwarts School, and revealing secrets of the wizarding community, magical objects and spells. The whole movie series also emphasises the significant role of Harry and his close friends in stopping the Voldemort’s return to the physical world through his followers. Regarding the scripts of the Harry Potter movies, Steve Kloves, who is an American screenwriter, wrote all the scripts except the fifth movie. Kloves had direct assistance from the author. The correspondence of the plot and tone of the movies and books are almost the same, however, some modifications and deletions have been made because of cinematic structure, time and technical constraints.

Harry Potter and the Action Prediction Challenge from Natural Language

Harry Potter and the Action Prediction Challenge from Natural Language

Harry Potter novels define a variety of spells. These are keywords cast by witches and wizards to achieve purposes, such as turning on a light (‘Lu- mos’), unlocking a door (‘Alohomora’) or killing (‘Avada Kedavra’). They abstract complex and non-ambiguous actions. Their use also makes it possible to build an automatic and self-annotated corpus for action prediction. The moment a spell occurs in a text represents a response to the en- vironment, and hence, it can be used to label the preceding text fragment as a scene description that ends up triggering that action. Table 1 illustrates it with some examples from the original books.

The crucifixion of consumerism and power and the resurrection of a community glimpsed through  Meylahn’s wounded Christ in conversation with Rowling’s Christ discourse in the  Harry Potter  series

The crucifixion of consumerism and power and the resurrection of a community glimpsed through Meylahn’s wounded Christ in conversation with Rowling’s Christ discourse in the Harry Potter series

Like some fantasies (including Lord of the rings and the Chronicles of Narnia), the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling makes a social comment on a particular dominant discourse within a particular sociocultural context. One of Rowling’s social comments is the dehumanising and fragmenting effect of the power and consumerist discourse in Western society – where great value is placed on what a person owns. An example of this theme in the series is the characters of the Dursleys, as prime examples of ‘Muggles’. Although it is not power that Muggles seek, but rather to fit in by having what the Jones’ have, which fits in well with the capitalist discourse as developed by Lacan – as discussed by Meylahn. Rowling juxtaposes this discourse with the alternative sacred story of the Christ discourse (community and fellowship are more important than material possessions), that she has subtly woven into her narrative. This alternative discourse challenges adolescents’ identity and spirituality by offering the Christ discourse as an alternative discourse to the dominant discourse of consumerism and power they live in. In his article, ‘Holistic redemptive pastoral ministry in the fragmented transit hall of existence’, Meylahn (2010) speaks of a ‘wounded Christ’ healing a ‘wounded community’ and this ties in well with the Christ discourse presented by Rowling. Meylahn gives us a useful hermeneutical tool to interpret the actions of some of Rowling’s characters. Hence, Meylahn’s ‘wounded Christ’, will be brought into conversation with the actions of some of Rowling’s characters. By bringing Rowling into conversation with Meylahn, pastors and youth workers are presented with an ideal tool to help guide adolescents towards a more spiritual life that is not bound to the dehumanising discourse of consumerism and power.

2002-Potter-APUA

The Gerstle River Quarry Site has been investigated several times since its discovery in 1976 by Charles Holmes (Holmes and Dilliplane 1976). After initial testing in 1976, in 1977, Holmes excavated 12 m2 finding two components in stratified context (Rabich and Reger 1978). In 1983 and 1985, Japanese researchers under the general direction of Yoshinobu Kotani excavated 71 m2 from the Upper Locus, recovering thousands of artifacts, faunal remains, and identifying at least two probable features. The only report on these investigations is a Japanese-language report published by the Japanese Museum of Ethnology in 1989 (Kimura et al. 1989). This paper was recently translated by a University of Alaska Fairbanks Anthropology student, Hiroko Ikuta, thus allowing for the full synthesis presented here. However, the paper only details lithic artifact distributions for part of the 1985 excavation (A-grid, see below), with minimal information on artifacts recovered in 1983, and no data on the faunal remains. No features were mentioned in the paper, though the original plan-views of several excavation units illustrate concentrations of bone, charcoal, and artifacts. It is possible that hearths were excavated in the 1985 excavation of A- and G-grids. Several scatters of large cobbles labeled “debris” and shaded areas labeled “carbon” were noted in the Japanese field plan maps. Faunal remains were also noted, but no information regarding taxa or element was provided in the report. In 1996, Holmes conducted further testing at the Upper Locus and excavated the first test pit at the Lower Locus recovering fauna and artifacts from multiple strata. In 1999, 2000, and 2001, I excavated 36 m2, 16 m2, and 32 m2 respectively at the Lower Locus, documenting three components, two of which predate the lowest component found in the Upper Locus (Potter and Holmes 2000; Potter 1999, 2000a, 2000b, 2001a, 2001b).

The prospect of attempting to link ancient languages or proto- languages with recurring sets of material culture is daunting if not impossible (cf. Renfrew 2000). A number of proposed linkages may be consistent with the data but difficult to test; data in this region tend to be coarse- grained, limited to supposed stylistic attributes of lithic technology. Recently, Dumond (2010), Ives (2010), and Potter (2010) summarized and evaluated Na- Dene prehistory in the context of Vajda’s (2010) linguistic connection between Na- Dene (Athapaskan- Eyak- Tlingit) and Yeniseian languages. Potter (2010) focused on patterns of material culture continuity and discontinuity, identifying contemporaneous archaeological groups with separate material culture traditions, and evaluating antiq- uity of language groups from the present (direct historical approach). Dumond, Ives, and Potter agreed that evidence for migration and discontinuities was present in the northeast Asian and northwest North American record at 14,000– 12,000 cal b.p. (initial colonization), 6000– 4800 cal b.p., and 1000 cal b.p. It is plausible that Na- Dene ances- tors migrated to North America as part of late Pleistocene or middle Holocene popu- lation expansions from northeast Asia, but a specific material cultural correlate with Na- Dene speakers is unclear. Microblade technology, argued by a number of research- ers to be associated with Na- Dene or Athapaskan ancestors (Borden 1968; Dumond 1969; Matson and Magne 2007), is ubiquitous across northeast Asia, including Japan and northern China, while it is generally more isomorphic with Na- Dene speakers in northern North America.

Furthermore, two extra conditions regarding the con- text in which peer support appeared needed to be fulfilled as well. First, contact between students was only coded if the peer support was offered voluntarily. Second, only interactions occurring between two living characters, at- tending Hogwarts at the same moment, were coded as peer support. Consequently, when dead characters reap- peared in the books, interactions between these dead characters and living students were not coded. One ex- ample for such reappearance is Cedric Diggory’s return at the end of book 4, when Cedric asks Harry to return his dead body to his parents. Furthermore, interactions with former or future Hogwarts students at a certain point in time were not included. For example, although Harry and Ginny met before Ginny attended Hogwarts, peer support relations between both characters were only coded when both students attended Hogwarts together.

Fred Zacharias and a Lawyer's Attempt To Be Guided by Justice: Flying With Harry Potter and Understanding How Lawyers Can Prosecute the People They Represent

Although these two systems of justice share both a proximity to water and an understanding that we are all tormented most and most effectively by our own personal demons, they differ radically in the purpose each was designed to serve. In the hands of Lord Voldemort the purpose of justice is to yield “the satisfaction of revenge,” 36 but for Harry the aim of justice is to redeem, restore, and renew, to “get people . . . to a present from which a better future can be obtained,” 37 and “to restore a shared narrative of their lives.” 38 In Harry’s realm, justice offers those who encounter it a way home, though not necessarily a free ticket there. In the realm of Lord Voldemort, however, those who encounter justice must be forever tormented by justice’s consequences and forever segregated from their community.
