Peak Insanity! University Adds TRIGGER WARNING To Harry Potter For Their Adult Students

TheQuartering [1/28/2022]

According to TheTimes:

A university has issued a trigger warning to students reading JK Rowling’s first Harry Potter book, claiming it could lead to “difficult conversations about gender, race, sexuality, class, and identity”.

The English department at the University of Chester put out the alert for its “Approaches to Literature” module, which requires freshers to read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Dr Richard Leahy, the course leader, has also previously appeared to criticise Rowling, who has divided opinion with her views on transgender rights.

The trigger warning appears underneath three “required” books on his course, which include Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games and Northern Lights.
