Context: Professor Umbridge (Book 5, Chapter 12)

Book 5 Chapter 12 HPST Series 2

This week, Vanessa and Casper explore the theme of Context in Chapter Twelve of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! They discuss the showdown in Umbridge's classroom, McGonagall's biscuit offering, and whether the Divination classroom can be a safe space for anyone. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how does context affect us even when we're not actively considering it? Next week we're reading Chapter 13, Detention with Dolores, through the theme of Pressure.
