Where:
Harry Potter canon is fairly heteronormative, yet the fans have taken this world and thrown it into slash fanfiction. This roundtable will discuss issues of heteronormativity in canon (in relation to relationships) and discuss how slash fanfic became a dominant force. We will be discussing the evolution of Drarry, Wolfstar, Snarry, and the lack of fem/fem fanfic. We will explore as a group why we feel this may occur.
