    Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, a new play by Jack Thorne.

    Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London's West End on 30th July 2016.

    It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Rowling, John Tiffany und Jack Thorne, ist ein neues Theaterstück von Jack Thorne. Es erzählt die achte Geschichte in der Harry-Potter-Serie und ist gleichzeitig die erste offizielle Harry-Potter-Geschichte, die auf der Bühne präsentiert wird. Das Stück feierte am 30. Juli 2016 im Londoner West End Premiere. Es war nie leicht, Harry Potter zu sein - und jetzt, als überarbeiteter Angestellter des Zaubereiministeriums, Ehemann und Vater von drei Schulkindern, ist sein Leben nicht gerade einfacher geworden. Während Harrys Vergangenheit ihn immer wieder einholt, kämpft sein Sohn Albus mit dem gewaltigen Vermächtnis seiner Familie, mit dem er nichts zu tun haben will. Als Vergangenheit und Gegenwart auf unheilvolle Weise miteinander verschmelzen, gelangen Harry und Albus zu einer bitteren Erkenntnis: Das Dunkle kommt oft von dort, wo man es am wenigsten erwartet.

  • De officiële tekst van de oorspronkelijke West End- productie van Harry Potter en het Vervloekte Kind in Londen.

    Het leven van Harry Potter was al nooit eenvoudig, maar nu hij een overwerkte ambtenaar is op het Ministerie van Toverkunst en vader van drie schoolgaande kinderen, lijkt alles nog ingewikkelder.

    Terwijl Harry wordt achtervolgd door zijn verleden dat weigert verleden tijd te blijven, worstelt zijn jongste zoon Albus met een familie-erfenis waar hij nooit om gevraagd heeft. Wanneer het verleden en heden dreigen te vesmelten, leren zowel vader als zoon dat het duister soms uit onverwachte hoek komt.

    Het toneelstuk Harry Potter en het Vervloekte Kind, gebaseerd op een oorspronkelijk verhaal van J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany en Jack Thorne, verscheen in een 'speciale repetitie-editie' gelijktijdig met de wereldpremière van het stuk in Londen in de zomer van 2016. HEt stuk werd laaiend enthousiast onthaald zowel door theaterbezoekers als critici en het script werd onmiddellijk een wereldwijde bestseller.

    Dit definitieve script bevat niet alleen de allerlaatste versie van de dialogen, maar ook gloednieuwe extra inhoud als een gesprek tussen regisseur John Tiffany en toneelschrijver Jack Thorne over het lezen van scripts. Deze editie bevat ook interessante achtergrondinformatie waaronder een Harry Potter stamboom en een tijdlijn.

  • Basato su una storia originale di J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany e Jack Thorne, un nuovo spettacolo di Jack Thorne, Harry Potter e la Maledizione dell'Erede è l'ottava storia della serie di Harry Potter e la prima a essere rappresentata a teatro. La premiere mondiale si è tenuta nel West End di Londra il 30 luglio 2016. È sempre stato difficile essere Harry Potter e non è molto più facile ora che è un impiegato del Ministero della Magia oberato di lavoro, marito e padre di tre figli in età scolare. Mentre Harry Potter fa i conti con un passato che si rifiuta di rimanere tale, il secondogenito Albus deve lottare con il peso dell'eredità famigliare che non ha mai voluto. Il passato e il presente si fondono minacciosamente e padre e figlio apprendono una scomoda verità: talvolta l'oscurità proviene da luoghi inaspettati.

  • This book addresses policy research on homophobic and transphobic bullying in schools. It covers quantitative and qualitative research into policy impacts for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex students. It draws on a large-scale Australian study of the impacts of different kinds of policy at the national, state, sector and school level. The study covers over 80 policies, interviews with key policy informants and survey data from 3,134 GLBTIQ students. Since new guidelines were released by UNESCO, homophobic and transphobic bullying in schools has become a key area of interest around the world. There has been much pressure on educational leadership to engage with these issues since the UN released international human rights legislation on sexual orientation and gender identity that have implications for student rights. The book presents statistically significant correlations between specific types of state and school level education policies that explicitly named homophobia/ GLBTIQ student issues, and lowered incidence of homophobic bullying, lowered risk of suicide and self-harm for these students. It includes stories from policy makers on how the policies came to be (through lawsuits, ministerial inquiries and political activism), right through to the stories of students themselves and how they individually felt the impacts of policies or policy lacks. International contexts of homophobic and transphobic bullying are discussed, as well as recent transnational work in this field. The book considers the different types of collaborations that can lead to further policy development, the transferability of the research and some of the benefits and problems with transnational policy adoptions.

  • Analysis of education policy often follows a particular orientation, such as conservative or neo-liberal. Yet, readers are often left to wonder the true meaning and conceptual framing behind these orientations. Without this knowledge, the policy analysis lacks true rigor, its value is diminished as the results may prove difficult to reproduce.Understanding Education Policy provides an overarching framework of four key orientations that lie beneath much policy analysis, yet are rarely used with accuracy: conservative, liberal, critical and post-modern. It details each orientation's application to policy making, implementation and overall impact. The book also argues the value of analysing a policy's orientation to improve the clarity of its analysis and allow broader trends across the education policy field to emerge.The book offers practical examples, key vocabulary and reflection activities which give equitable, yet critical consideration to all education orientations. This allows readers to see the benefits and disadvantages of each perspective and discover their own biases.This introduction to education policy analysis offers theoretically broad, highly practical coverage. It is adaptable to many kinds of policy analysis areas and will appeal to a wide range of readers with an interest in education policy, from students conducting specific research to policy makers looking for a deeper way to re-think their work.

  • This book showcases and celebrates the work of Gender and Sexuality Education scholars in order to challenge current negative interpretations of the field, and work towards new shared visions. The editors and contributors call for, affirm and offer examples of pathways towards exciting and dynamic collaborative work in Gender and Sexuality in Education. In doing so, they also acknowledge the various complexities of this field, and detail the context-specific barriers faced by academics and activists. Drawing upon a range of global case studies, this book sets out information and advice from cross-sector experts to set an agenda of mutual supportiveness, and to smooth pathways for future collaboration.  Above all, this book is a call to action to uplift the field - and each other - in challenging environments. This ground-breaking book will be of interest and value to scholars of Gender and Sexuality Education research. 

  • This book is based on a comparative study from 2018, of four different approaches to education, according to 2,500 Australians' experiences of them, on a range of topics. It shows that whilst the critical approach has strong research-based support across the board, sometimes a liberal, conservative or post-modern approach may have some merit for certain outcomes. This is a book about challenging our biases and calling on ourselves to aim higher for education, than what our own pre-conceived ideas might allow.

    What and who is valued in education, and the social roles and identity messages learned, differ wildly from school to school. Education is most impacted by the orientation of education dominant in that context - whether conservative, liberal, critical or post-modern. These terms are often used with little practical data on the real-life schooling they entail. Who learns what in which approach? Who learns best with which approach, on which topic and why? This book provides this previously missing information. It offers holistic, detailed descriptions of conservative, liberal, critical and post-modern approaches to education broadly. It provides statistics and stories from real students on how the four approaches work practically in schools in relation to: age, gender, sexuality, social class, race, news-media, popular culture and technology. Chapters offer background information to the four perspectives, data from student participants, tutorial questions and activities, and suggestions for further reading.

  • El guión oficial de la producción original del West End de Harry Potter y el legado maldito.

    Ser Harry Potter nunca ha sido tarea fácil, menos aún desde que se ha convertido en un ocupadísimo empleado del Ministerio de Magia, un hombre casado y padre de tres hijos.

    Mientras Harry planta cara a un pasado que se resiste a quedar atrás, su hijo menor, Albus, ha de luchar contra el peso de una herencia familiar de la que él nunca ha querido saber nada. Cuando el destino conecte el pasado con el presente, padre e hijo deberán afrontar una verdad muy incómoda: a veces, la oscuridad surge de los lugares más insospechados.

    Este guión final actualiza el texto completo de la obra de teatro, con el diálogo definitivo de la obra, que ha cambiado ligeramente desde los ensayos, así como una conversación entre el director John Tiffany y el guionista Jack Thorne, que comparten su conocimiento y anécdotas sobre la lectura de textos de teatro. Esta edición también incluye contexto histórico sobre el árbol genealógico de los Potter y una cronología de los eventos en el Mundo Mágico que preceden al comienzo de Harry Potter y el legado maldito.

    El guión de Harry Potter y el legado maldito se publicó en una edición especial del texto teatral inmediatamente después del estreno mundial de la obra en el West End de Londres el verano de 2016.
