Questions of the Wizarding World

From the Hogwarts house dormitories, magical occupations, and the representations of women of color in the series, gender permeates the magical world just as significantly as it permeates our own. A diverse set of folks with expertise in gender studies will seek to discuss the intricacies of how gender is represented and interpreted in the Harry Potter series. Panelists will discuss questions such as: How it is gender represented in similar or different ways to our own world? Different...

The Muggle WorldBeyond the Books and FilmsFandom

At a time where most media has broadly recognized that representation matters, new Harry Potter properties seem to be lagging behind, leaving the fandom torn. Should J.K. be held accountable? Should fans trust her and just "wait and see" what she comes up with before passing judgment? In this panel, we'll discuss how to be a better ally and listener in these conversations as the HP fandom continues to grow.

The Muggle World

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was published over 20 years ago, yet Harry, Hermione, and Ron continue to inspire. Why? The generation that grew up with the magic has brought the lessons that they learned from the series into their adult lives. How can we be the Hermione Granger in our own lives? How can we defeat the Voldemorts around us? Should we keep believing in nargles? Join Vanessa Zoltan and Ariana Nedelman, co-hosts and producers of the podcast Harry Potter and the...

11:30 AM EDT - 12:30 PM EDT | 1 hour
Examine the Canon

It is often stated in the Harry Potter series that there’s no place safer than Hogwarts. Is it because Dumbledore is the greatest wizard of all time or because Ministry security leaves something to be desired? Join us as we talk safety and security at the Ministry of Magic, Gringotts, Hogwarts, and other Wizarding institutions.

Questions of the Wizarding WorldExamine the Canon

In this session, panelists representing multiple ethnic backgrounds discuss the (mis)/representation of their communities within Harry Potter canon and imagine how culture would inform magic, and how magic would inform culture, in both wizarding and Muggle worlds. Through this discussion, we will cross-examine the White, European, pseudo-Christian Wizarding culture of Harry Potter to answer questions like: What would be our culture’s predominant attitude towards magic? How might...

The Muggle World

It's not hard to find a character in the Harry Potter universe who struggles with their identity and how it impacts their standing in the wizarding world. Often this identity is depicted through the lens of blood status, and it's rare that the characters discuss how the intersectionality between race and other identities shape people in the wizarding world. How does the intersectionality between race and other identities shape people in the fandom?
